Breaking the Silence

November 5, 1999 Friday Last night I had a dream with Sidney in it.  That’s not too strange, on the face of it.  They still happen, sometimes.  Nothing spectacular happening. I hadn’t had one in a while, but it in we briefly talked;  perhaps I was grabbed by some special twist of the imaginary words…

Sweetness

November 2, 1999  Tuesday As Collinsville, Tom and I were having the Greek discussion of the last entry (“Why I Write This Thing 2”), a story broke on the TV that Walter Payton had died at noon.  It’s one of those moments you can’t describe.  Walter had been ill since at least last February when…

Munsoned Again!

October 25, 1999  Monday I went home Saturday morning for the first time this semester.  Elmwood does not change, I have come to find, as if in a vacuum of time and space.  Besides one or two new houses going up, it has remained unchanged since my time there. It was good to see the…

Tom’s B-Day

October 20, 1999 Wednesday I have been pondering for a while the state of my hair (that’s right, you get the heavy hitting news here).  It had been had two months since the last cut, so I had been playing with the idea of growing it out.  Yet I got it cut yesterday, and it’s…

Figures…

October 19, 1999  Tuesday Tom and Collinsville had both been asking me to write again (although they want most material to pertain to Amdor stories) and they read yesterday’s entry, “All Because of Algernon” as soon as I got home from the computer lab with it. Last night Tom and I, being out usual busy…

All Because of Algernon

October 18, 1999  Monday On Sunday, October 10th, we were visited on Calhoun by a few hundred bats.  At first, in the afternoon, I thought they were just birds–lots of noisy, screeching birds going crazy in our trees in the backyard.  Until night came.  We first found out they were bats when Camille told us…

The End of the Love

May 14, 1998  Thursday It this doesn’t convince anyone of the ease of a Dr. Fraiser class, nothing will.  When I got to class he didn’t have the tests for Film run off–the finals–so he had to go do that while we waited.  In a few minutes he returned and passed out his test… and…

I Think I Can, I Think I Can

April 28, 1998  Tuesday This running thing is tough.  Tonight I had to return a movie to Family Video, so that was my destination.  I thought I could make it a jog, because two days ago I made the same loop without puking or anything.  I took off through campus and the light rain, but…

Enlightenment

April 23, 1998  Thursday I finally made it over to the university library tonight.  I had wanted to make the trip for over a week, and I finally wanted to so bad that I was able to get of my bed and go.  The first book I looked for was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass….

The “Kill-tron 3000”

April 23, 1998  Thursday Tom thought he was really cool, being able to spritz and squirt at me with his little pee-shooter of a water gun the last couple of days. There I was, as just one example, simply minding my own business, watching TV in 420, and a stream of water hit my neck…

Sara, the New Vice-President

April 20, 1998  Monday I have to say that the movie we watched for film class tonight, Singin’ in the Rain, was the was best so far.  Sure a few parts were a little corny (it was made in 1954) but I really liked the comedy and premise, as well as the dancing.  Best of…

Answering The Tempest Wind

April 20, 1998  Monday Because of my up and down weekend, I needed to burn off some energy yesterday.  Unfortunately, Jeremy was the only person around the floor, so when we played catch I couldn’t throw it as hard as I would have liked.  But it good to be outside and doing something, all the…
