Christine and I took 15 minutes to do a problem on the board,
later she and I were telling Chris T the ways he resembled
a toad ['Toad' would be his later
nickname]. Gym(spare)- Christine and I went to
for asec then out, on our way passed Chris T, [we] said he was duking. Christine and I stood out by St John's
and had a smoke, then we went to the library and sat with
Ken. History- chapter 17 test, Webb told a gross joke (I can't
believe I ate the whole thing)(51).
Lunch- Christine and I met Lesley, Dave and Janet in the aud,
sat outside at the back. Dave sang 'Aqualung' in opera. Andy
came, then we went inside up by the aud doors, Lesley sat
by herself on the stairs, then
can't believe I ate the whole thing
came and sat with us. Art- Chris T came and walked across
the painting, I said I was going to kill him in Science. Science-
Chris said he has a dog (a Labrador) and a cat. At the end
we were throwing wet pieces of paper at each other. nite-
at 5:30 Lesley and Don came over with a stereo tape recorder.
They stayed here at dinner, ordered pizza. Foster Tilden bought
some acid from Don in the front hall. We walked to Gillian's
(Lesley, Don, Judy, Christine, Ralph, Danielle, Andy and I),
went up to Gillian's room, then downstairs. Had a fire in
the fireplace [good].
Played cards, talked etc. Gillian lent me the album 'Benefit'
by Jethro Tull. Got a drive to my place, Lesley and Don stopped
in to get their kitten they's left in the basement. Outside
we met Tilden and Fenouhlet who were tripping.
[audio recordings exist from my place and Gillian's - audio
came over, sat downstairs. Danielle, then Gillian came. Watched
movies. My parents went out so we went to the livingroom.
Gillian was passing out smokes. Lesley and Don came and went
upstairs to play 'checkers' (they were up 2 hrs). Downstairs
we played 'Feds and Heads'(52),
fed the cat (Don and Lesley brought it). Went upstairs and
persuaded Lesley and Don to give us the tape recorder, we
got it and taped. Watched 'Bugs Bunny', Lesley and Don came
down about 5:30, everyone left at 6. They left the cat here.
nite- got a drive with Ralph to Lesley's, Dave and Danielle
in the car. Don and Gillian were at Lesley's. Got a drive
to the Dorval Community Center. Played ping-pong, sat in the
little room, went outside and played 'Crack the Whip', started
fires. Got a drive home with Ralph.
and I walked up to the phone booth across from school and
met Ralph and Danielle. We went to the pits, sat up on the
hill (windy there), then in the large field, then to a stream
in the woods with a [very] small
waterfall. Made things from clay in the stream (I made an
ashtray), stayed at the stream 1+1/2 hrs. We called it 'DRAG'
stream after the first letters of our names
[would not 'GARD' or 'GRAD' have been better?].
Went back to the large field, saw a fairly large fire across
the field, Danielle and Ralph went to put it out. Left about
4:15, walked home.
"Spin me down the long ages, let them sing their song..."
Chris T and I talking about the Pits, motorcycles. Racine
asked me if I played any sports. Chris bought Alice Cooper's
'Killer' Friday night. History- Ken and I insulted each other.
Lunch- met Don (he was at J.R. Today) and Lesley at my locker.
Went to the caf, met Dave. Then Don and I went to the aud,
sat outside and sat against the wall of the aud on the grass
facing the back parking lot [the
sun was warm]. Don had brought his tape recorder
so we listened to music. Dave and Lesley came with the cat,
sat there and talked. Art- out in the hall not doing anything
on the 6ft painting, Chris T came up and we talked. We saw
Don out of the windows but couldn't call him to come up because
they were nailed shut. Chris said he'd get Don (he'd gone
to the caf). Chris got Don, they stayed, Don held up the painting.
Lapa said it was my best work, but I had to fix the shading.
While I was mixing paint in the hall Chris came back (he had
got his French books). Fixed shading. English- Don came to
the door at the beginning. Science- right at the beginning
I had my head down looking at the desk, Chris came in and
put his hand right under my head. He said he'd never been
stoned on grass or anything like that, just drunk. His full
name is Chris Alan Todd. After school Don came here, then
Lesley, we sat outside on the porch, Don had firecrackers [this is the last day in this journal that Don and Lesley
are recorded together. Soon after this they would break up
for the last time, and Lesley would enter a dark period in
her life...even in 1994 she still wondered what ever became
