and I went to contractors and filled out job applications
in the morning [Mike was putting
pressure on me to do this]. Then we went out to
Abbott [I hadn't gone back for the
fourth semester]. Bob and I went to Brittain Hall to get hash (room 243), went
to the wrong room at first (254). Mike, Bob and I went to

work, went to Abbott, got hash from Bob
