September 1976

Gillian went to Abbott during this semester, as did I again.

September 12 Sunday
Outdoor art show at Stuart Hall, the Simons (134) and Gillian there.

Some people this semester included Joanne (nicknamed 'Hoover' because of the amount of mescaline she did) and the Iranian brothers Atta and Abou.

This month I read 'Lord of the Rings' and this time I loved it (I'd read 'The Hobbit' earlier but found it too simple). I've since read it may times.

October 26 Tuesday
Sue made me a Star Trek shirt at her place in Dollard
[for a costume party].

October 30 Saturday
Costume party at Earl's in Ste Anne's (and later at Sue's) [The first, at Earl's (Brown) I went with Ralph and Andy. Bob was there, Sean too, probably Christine. (Sean had done acid and painted his face). Later Ralph, Andy and I went down to the Pisse-Dru to play pool. Ralph was dressed as the Clint Eastwood character from the spaghetti westerns, and Andy as a priest (his father was a minister). A girl asked where I'd got my Star Trek shirt, and was disappointed when I told her. Andy played pool with a girl dressed as a nun. Later I went to Sue and Max's party]

134. The Simons seemed to be lucky when it came to art. At the bottom of the staircase in their house in Pointe Claire hung a painting we always thought was extremely ugly. It was of an old woman with glaring eyes, a relative of Gillian. Well, it turns out this painting was by the German artist Otto Dix.
