…  she would probably have convulsions if she couldn’t watch ‘The View’ and now that it’s summer, she’s been trying to get me to watch it with her again like she tried last year. At least that blonde girl is gone and a cool Asian girl has taken her place but seriously, why do I want to watch a TV show where everyone is trying to talk at the same time? I get enough of that at the dinner table when Aunt Mary Jane brings over my cousins every single Sunday since the day I was born. Last Sunday Maggie kept asking me if I still liked the Spice Girls and I kept saying no about fifty times and then Aunt Mary Jane tried to pretend she’s cool by saying “Oh, you’re not gettin’ jiggy Wit the Spice Girls any more?”

If there was a contest for the most UNcool family in all of the state of Pennsylvania, then they would win.

‘Zoot Suit Riot’

Handwritten page of a diary dated November 12, 1998

…  new show called Will and Grace, except it’s not really new when you consider IT’S ABOUT MY LIFE. Can they do that? Write about me and Stevie and Adam and not pay us royalties? I guess the main difference is that we have no character of Karen (which is too bad because we could use a friend with lots of money since the other difference is that Stevie and I don’t have jobs).

Tonight after Stevie and I watched Will and Grace on TV, we were trying to actually study for once so far this semester, but then Adam came over to the library and wanted Stevie to come back to the dorm and make up a dance with him to the song “Gettin’ Jiggy With It.” At first Stevie said no and it took half the night for Adam to convince him, but finally Stevie said yes maybe he felt like dancing after all. But only if they used the song “Zoot Suit Riot” instead. And only if I took their picture while they danced.
