Alrighty then, let's dig into the pages of my life and extract the diary entries from your suggested dates. My current-day comments are in bold.
Maria (HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Now, the closest I have to Jan. 1st, 1996 is Jan. 20th, 1996. I am 20. And here's what it says:
well, it's another semester at wonderful Rye High. I'm feeling sort of indifferent to be back. I think the novelty of T.O. has worn off. I don't think TV is for me and therefore it's a little distressing that we only have ONE radio class this term.
Anyway. Me, Grenks, Mark, Chris and Charmaine are going out tonight. I think maybe to Etobicoke to see a country band!
Well-once again- I've become a wee bit smitten with someone. His name is Arty McCheesepants (*names have been changed to protect the innocent*). I've known him since last year - but last week, we were discussing movies in the RTA Lounge and we both said how we wanted to go see "12 Monkeys". He called me and left a message, asking if I wanted to see it (while I was AT IT with Michal and Paul) - but I called him the next night and we blabbed for 3 hours. Anyway - we ran into each other @ the Atrium and he said he had a surprise for me and gave me a little clay Mr. Potato Head that he made for me! It was so sweet!!
There's more but it's boring (honest). I realized a couple dates later that I wasn't interested anyway. Maybe it was the Mr. Potato Head that made me think I was in love with him. HAH! Okay, now onto:
Zoey! June 23rd, 1989. The closest I have is June 20th, 1989. I am 13.
Grad is in 2 days (from Grade 8). Right now, I hear a robin getting angry - probably at a cat trying to get its babies - but it's past 10 pm and I can't get outside to save it (damn curfews!). I wish I could. Well, I can't hear it anymore, but I'm pretty sure it flew away because there was nothing else it could do. I hope everything's okay. It makes me sad.
I found a robin's nest in the tree today but not the oak tree, another tree beside it - the big green one (as opposed to?). And it's pretty low too, so a cat could get it, that's why I'm going to put chicken wire around the trunk (so it can't climb up) as soon as I can!! Hopefully, nothing ruins the nest tonight! - like last year when the warbler's nest in the bushes got torn apart by a cat (I know which one too!) down the lane - there were eggs in it too. I was so sad that I cried.
Sincerely, Natalie Lauzon
p.s. I wrote my letter to the management of CROWDED HOUSE and mailed it today!
JB! You asked for anytime between July 29 and August 2nd, 1985. The closest I have is May 30th, 1985. I am 9.
I don't like Christine (my best friend) in my own little way. Today Christine was very stupid. I just said for her to look at something and she just turned her head. This is Christine for ya! Sometimes I like her and sometimes I don't!
(this is accompanied by a drawing of Christine with boogers running down her face and a tongue sticking up to catch the flow. Hey, I was 9).
So - what was the significance of the dates? Oh! And for the record, I do remember what Mario looked like. In fact....
Now, Kim! You wanted June 1, 1987. I found June 14th, 1987. I am 11.
It's Sunday but I'll write this (pretend it's Sat!). We went to go see a movie today! Ah, it was so funny! it was called FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF! It was great! Mr. Osterberg laughed! My mom said, if HE laughs, then it's funny. I guess I'll fill you in on the latest news!
1. I like Kris! And I know he likes me too! Boy is he a doll! HUBBA HUBBA! (like grandpa says)
2. Danny had to get his appendix out a few weeks ago. Christine and I went to go see him. His colour was good! He was at school on Friday!
3. The class made a card for him and we all pitched in to buy him flowers. I made the poem inside the card!
4. Kathy likes Danny! She said when she liked Darrell she really liked Danny. Ha! She's probably lying! Her and Leah wear eye shadow! Stupid eh?
That's all for now!
It appears! As though! I really liked! Exclamation points! back then! Huh?!!!
Also, eye shadow is for sluts. I mean...for sluts!
