and Gillian there.
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.

she leaves for out west.
me a Star Trek shirt at her place in Dollard [for
a costume party].
October 30 Saturday
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.
