7:29pm

So, today was a normal Tuesday at school. This morning Rhonda, Tabitha and Shayla and I were walking around school and Rhonda’s backpack mysteriously became unzipped. So, she was yelling at us, “Zip it up! Zip it up!” It was really funny because then I said, “that’s what she said.” Haha.

AND last night I talked on the phone with David for like an hour. He asked me “What is one thing that you’d change about yourself?” I said I didn’t want to tell him. He kept begging me, so I gave him some clues: I would never have the money to do it, or the guts so he’s like, “it’s a physical change,” I’m like, yes. He said, “how can I say this…does it have to do with fruit?” haha yeah. I’m like “Yeah….” Then he said, “do you want to change melons into grapefruits?” YES! HE FRICKEN GUESSED IT! He knows me wayyyy too well. He’s like, “why?” I’m like, “Because…” “Why? They’re a part of who you are.” I’m like, “They get in the way.” Haha yeah.

Later he told me girls who have braces have good D.S.L. yeah. Most of my friends and I have had braces, which is pretty funny. So, I told Rhonda and Tabitha about DSL, Tabitha got it right away and it took Rhonda a little bit. I ended up telling her. So, Rhonda told Brandon about D.S.L. and the melons, grapefruit thing. And I told a bunch of people about the D.S.L. which I think is pretty funny. OH! AND I might be getting a job at Sonic!

Present day me: D.S.L. meant dick sucking lips. I was a sucker for dirty/sexual things like that. Knowing of this new acronym was like treasure to my mind.

Tuesday

*SCARIEST DAY EVER!*

So, this past Thursday, the 16th, I was on this website called Speeddate.com and I gave this guy (decent looking) my aim screenname. He’s 18 and said he’s from the town near my cabin. So, I sent him some pics of myself over aim and he sent me some of him…. He then said he really wanted to talk to me on the phone. I gave him my number but only to text me. I told him to call me the next night. I’d be at the homecoming football game for the other high school in town. So that night I texted Tabitha and told her about it. And I was like really freaked out, I couldn’t fall asleep that night. I even had a dream that he came to my house to meet me.

So, the next day I came to school freaked out about him calling me. I told Rhonda about it, and I texted him asking if he could send me a pic of him. He did, it’s not the greatest. That night at the game I texted him asking when he was going to call me.

Him: my phone is dying, so maybe later

Me: how much later?

Him: IDK

Me: I might be with my boyfriend later

Him: Oh okay

Me: What about your girlfriend?

Him: Since when do you have a boyfriend? You were single yesterday

Me: Should I just call you?

Him: No, I’m mad at you. You lied to me.

Me: Okay, whatever you want.

So, I wait a couple hours. I had asked Kyle Cash to be my boyfriend for the night to tell him off. If he did call me. But since he wasn’t calling me, Kyle called him. He pretended to be someone else saying, “Who dis? Where you at?” It was really funny. By the end of the game, I kind of felt bad for treating him like that. So, I texted him.

Me: OMG! I’m so sorry! One of my guy friends had my phone and had sent you all those texts.

Him: Right

Me: I’m serious! I just got my phone back. I’m really sorry.

Then he called me, asked me why my guy friend decided to text him. I said he’s the only person on my list he doesn’t know. Then this stalker said he was in Milwaukee chillen with his buddies. He told me how cool they are except when there’s a drive by. I told him I had to go because I was going to get picked up soon. He didn’t text me until Monday.

Him: Hi

Me: Hey!

Him: What’s up?

Me: Not much, at school. You?

Him: at home

Me: oh fun…

Him: Oh very…

Me: haha so how’s your day been?

Him: good wbu?

Me: eh…it’s been okay.

Him: why just okay?

Me: just been a normal day nothing special.

Him: that’s fun. You wanna hang out after school?

Me: How? Where?

Him: after school and idk where

Me: Oookay…

Him: Yup where you live again lol

Me: (says town name) you’d drive here?

Him: exactly and I’m in (other town) that aint that far at all

Me: Sorry my friend Andrea said I can’t hang out with you

Him: Okay whatever bye

Then he calls me and asks why exactly I can’t hang out with him. I just tell him because my friend said I can’t. He then tells me he’s in my town! Yeah. I asked him where, he said by a high school and grocery store. That’s really freaking close to my house! So, I told him sorry, but I couldn’t today. He hung up, I texted him saying if he worked in his town. He told me to call him if he wanted to talk to him (we were at Tabitha’s house) so I did. He said he’s unemployed. So anyway, he was just being a really big jerk about me not hanging out with him. Tabitha and I talked about it after he hung up and I decided to call Aaron and ask him if he knew this guy. So, like at 5 I called Aaron.

THANK GOD he was home and THANK GOD he knew this guy. He said this guy is a freaky guy. Aaron thought he was gay, and he’s gotten in trouble for sexually assaulting a girl. And this guy has stolen stereos and tv’s out of people’s houses. I told Aaron about my little situation. So, I was like freaking out while I was on the phone with him…. anyway. I cancelled my account on speeddate and took it off of my facebook. I called Tabitha and Rhonda and told them about it. Yeah, and this guy texted me like an hour ago saying, “so your going to ignore me now?” I’m not going to call or text him ever again. And if it gets worse, I’m going to ask one of my guy friends to tell him off. Hopefully he’ll get the hint and just stop contacting me.

Yeah, well my hand hurts.

G’night!

Present day me: Wow, as a 29-year-old revisiting this entry it makes me laugh but also makes me feel cautious! I was lucky I had friends who were willing to help me in this situation. I knew I didn’t really want to hang out with him, but I also wanted attention from guys. So, this was a learning experience for young, naïve me. I got lucky!

Sunday 9:43pm

So today dad woke me up by kicking at my leg at 7:30 in the morning. We had to go over to Uncle Charlie and Aunt Ivy’s house for the after-the-golf-outing-breakfast. We talked about the outing and how everything went and then drove home.

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Woke up at Uncle Charlie and Aunt Ivy’s house. Mom, Aunt Ivy and Meryl and I went to the new Cabela’s store. Mom wanted to buy some chocolate covered espresso beans. We went out for lunch at cousins subs. Then went back to their house. Dad, Uncle Charlie and I played a few games of cribbage. Then we left to go to the Phillips’. I got to drive Aunt Ivy over there, because the kids and moms were going to the fair. So, we get there and Meryl and I just walk around the fair and people watch. We don’t know anyone there. So, I text Topanga and tell her we’re at the fair and she should come and hang out with us. So, she shows up and I walk around the park with her and she tells me pretty much all about her life. We probably walked a total of three miles. Then we met up with mom and everyone and went on some rides. That was really fun! We went on a giant swing and then a ride like the screaming eagle at MOA. Then the tilt o whirl. It was really cool to hang out with Topanga again. We walk over by the stage and listen to the band play a few songs then walk around some more and leave. When we were in the van on the way home, I let Meryl listen to a voicemail I got the night before, it sounded like Gayle left it. But it was a private number. Linda asked me what we were listening to, and I told her someone had prank called me last night and I couldn’t understand what they were saying. I looked at Gayle as I said that and she was smiling really big, so I’m pretty sure it was her. So, we get back to the Phillips’ and have some food. We talked for a little while and then went to bed. Meryl and I slept on the floor in Linda’s room. Neither Gayle or Linda slept in the same room as us.

Friday July 25, 2008

Pretty much watched movies all day. After the parents went to the fair to see COLLECTIVE SOUL! Gayle asked us three girls if we’d want to bike into town to go to the coffee corner. Another girl from the neighborhood came with too. So, we bike into town and on the way in Gayle and this girl bike over to Bailey’s house to have her come too. So, me, Linda, and Meryl just go straight to the coffee place. They show up and all order smoothies. And Meryl and I didn’t order anything. I wanted to bike over to our old neighborhood where we used to live. So, the three of us went and biked over the hill to the park and hung out there for a while. Then biked to a gas station to get some band aids because Meryl cut her foot while we were there. Dad called me and let me listen to SHINE by Collective Soul. It was really awesome. It was wavy and tinny sounding. But still cool to listen to them live. So, we bike back to their house and want to go swimming. So, we all get our suits on except Gayle. And we’re standing in the kitchen, Gayle tells us her grandma said we can’t go swimming because we’ll get overheated or a leg cramp. What kind of bullshit is that? Just Gayle being in control. So, we change into our pjs and decide to run around outside. But Gayle escapes to the neighbor girl’s house right after she said we’ll all play night games. We go over there and try to get them to come out, but they come back to Gayle’s house and sit inside, so us kids are like, messing with them through the window.

Well, we just end up watching Fool’s Gold. The neighbor girl never said one word while I was around her. And every time I looked at her she looked like she was about to cry. So, we watch the movie and go to bed. Linda ended up sleeping in her room with us so that was good.

Golf Outing Day!

Got up at 6am, way too early for me! I almost fell asleep while I was taking a shower. Got ready and dad took us three kids to burger king for breakfast. We got to the golf course and basically Meryl and I hung out together and took some pictures. My camera broke again so we had to use Meryl’s which only held about 15 photos. So, after everyone golfed and ate dinner/lunch and did the raffle prizes. I won a free 18 hole for 4 players certificate and traded for a bag ball game. After the raffle prizes were done dad drove us three back to the Phillips. Linda and their grandma were the only one’s there. So, I pretty much watched tv for the rest of the night, I was so tired. At about 11 I decided to go to bed, so I laid down and took my phone out to check for any new stuff. And there was a new voicemail from a private number. They said their name was Michael and they saw my myspace picture and thought we should go out. He gave me his number, so I texted it. Found out that he’s the guy Gayle likes – and I’m pretty sure she set him up to it. Even though when she got home, she told me she didn’t do it. But whatever. If I get another “private” call again I’m calling the police or I’m going to make Tabitha send her a mean text message. G’night!

Present day me: This was definitely a buried memory until I read this entry again. Wow. Getting creepy voicemails from a private number was how people pranked each other back then! Also, it was really cool to read about hanging out with Topanga. My family lived in this town where Gayle and Linda live. We moved a few hours away and would come back and visit a few times a year. Topanga was one of my first friends of my life.

Copied from notes on my ipod touch <3

Friday, Jan. 18, 2008 – 4:47pm

Just found out Aaron wants a girlfriend!!!! Said so on his headline on myspace! But the comments I sent him last night (3-4) he deleted! Well one of them had my cell number on it… but still why would he delete them?? Rhonda said maybe he wants to keep his plans a secret from his friends, because then that means he’s coming to the mall or something… but I don’t really know for sure. I’m staying at Hannah’s house tonight with Rhonda and we’re going to call Aaron and Rhonda said she’ll act like a stalker and ask him why he deleted my comments. 😊 I just hope he’s home and not doing anything and would want to talk to me at least. And I said I’ll have to be all flirty because he’s looking for a girlfriend now and I’m pretty desperate for a boyfriend. I hope when we call him, he doesn’t say, “Guess what I did today! I asked a girl out named (insert name here) and now we’re going out!” If he says that I’m going to scream! Or (we were joking around) if he said, “Guess what I found out today! I’m a homosexual!” Hannah and Rhonda would laugh, and I’d start crying…ugh! Why can’t I get to know him better? I need to be more outgoing or flirty…yeah.

Yesterday – Jan. 19, 2008 – 9:11pm

So last night I stayed at Hannah’s with Rhonda. It was a lot of fun! We had mashed potatoes, gravy and turkey for dinner 😊 Then we hung out in her room and called Aaron 😊😊😊 Rhonda talked to him first and then I did. He sounded bored when on the phone with Rhonda and sounded happy when he talked to me! We talked about my cabin and his house and why he deleted my comments! He said his brother sent him some comments that he didn’t want anyone to see so he went crazy on the deleting. Yeah, likely story. But he said he had an old pinball machine! It sounds really cool, and he has a piano. But he doesn’t know how to play chopsticks, so I told him I’ll teach him sometime. We talked about movies too. He’s like, “I can never sit still,” and I’m like, “then what do you do at like movies and stuff?” he’s like, “I get up and walk around or I go to the bathroom 20 times,” I’m like, “there’s not reason to see a movie then,” but he said, “well it’s just chick flicks I don’t like.” And I’m like, “Well, yeah you’re a guy. I’d never take you to a chick flick.” He said, “well I’d sit through one if it was with a girl I really like,” I KNOW!!!! That made me smile. I’m just like, “Oh, that’s good to know.” Yeah, when we were talking about his pinball machine, he told me his backdoor is always open. And that I can go into his house whenever. Yeah, I gave him my cell number so he could call me today telling me if he could go to the mall or not. So, after that we just hung out. Went to sleep at midnight and woke up at 9. Good nine hours of sleep. So, Rhonda’s mom picked me up and took me home. I took a shower and got ready for the mall! Thinking that Aaron would be there (I was getting too excited for it) But he wasn’t there!!! We walked around the mall like a ton of times looking for him, but we never did 🙁 so we gave up. I found a dress and that was it.

Present day me: My friends back then were so funny. This makes me miss myspace too and being able to leave comments and read people’s headlines. We had nicknames for everything back then, especially sexual things so when we learned we were having mashed potatoes, gravy, and turkey for dinner that night we giggled to each other about the inside jokes we had. I also love those foods together still! Reading about Aaron and my conversation on the phone made me laugh a lot. His pinball machine was real, although I never was brave enough to go to his house and enter through the back door myself. Also, reading this entry today I’m not certain he was flirting with me with those lines, but I felt like I was trying to flirt with him!
