February 21

saw 'M*A*S*H*' at Fairview [a guy in front keep telling his girl which scenes to watch for. This was the first movie I saw with the word 'fuck' in it].


February 22

Tina gave Graham Banks shit about calling me a fag. [Of the people at that time, Tina and Steve at least has some sympathy for me. I don't think Tina liked me though, but Steve did. Graham was a friend of Foster (Tilden, my next door neighbour. His uncle ran Tilden Rent a Car. Both Foster and Graham had attended Cedar Park School), whose nickname was 'Limey'. Later he would collect Auston Minis. The first time I hear the word 'faggot' used against me was in 1970 (shouted from a bus) as Sheila and I were walking home on St John's by the City Hall after school, and I didn't know what it meant. Sheila told me, and I hated the sound of it].
