Retro Blog #1

I recently found my old diary from 1993-2004. I've decided to make a series on my blog with excerpts from the masterpiece of my childhood. All I have to say is that not much has changed since '93. Some names have been changed (to protect the innocent...okay, me.)

This early entry, from October 16, 1993, shows my cold heartedness and cruelty at the ripe old age of 7.

Dear Diary,

I'm going to be a pirate For Halloween. My sister has the chicken pox. I hope I do not get the Chicken Pox. I hope My Brother gets it. I WANT TO GET CANDY!

Love,

Kelly

Another one, from June 10, 1994 shows how boy-crazy I was, even at a young age.

Dear Diary,

Today I rented Jaws (side note: who lets an 8 year old watch Jaws? And read the book? With the sex scenes and the F word??). I watched it twice. Last week I got out of school I have a boyfriend his name is Jeff. Today my aunt was here. We did a project. My boyfriend live's in Vermont. (Note: you may think this is a fake boyfriend, like the nerd in high school whose girlfriend lives in Canada...but Jeff was real. He did not know he was my boyfriend...but in my head, he was all mine!)

This trend continued through fifth grade, when I harassed the shyest boy in my class. I seriously wonder if I inflicted damage on that poor child. No wonder he's in the Army now; he's probably still trying to escape me.

Dear Diary,

I sort of have a boyfriend: George Glass (not his real name). He likes me a little and I like him a lot! It's true love! (Every letter or punctuation that required dots was dotted with hearts. My God). I made up a song about George. It is to the tune of Amazing Grace but is like Amazing George. My friends make me sing it all the time. It is so funny.

George and I are going to the carnival next week. I can't wait! This will be my first date. George and I will go on the rides and play games. We're even going to share cotton candy!

I love George!

Love,

Kelly

  1. Did your friends REALLY like your song and make you sing it over and over? Hmmm

    Oh and I'll back you that Jeff was/is real!

  2. I remember that Halloween. As a result of my chicken pox and not being allowed to trick or treat, I had to rely on you for candy that year. And all I got was a few lousy tootsie rolls.


    George Glass= Matt Cauda

  3. Jeff got so hot. I remember how good he looked shirtless in a pair of navy blue sweats that read "LBI", with nothing else on except his baby blue eyes. You should have stayed with him, lol.

  4. Hahahaha! Kelly you crack me up. As someone who lived through these years with you I can attest that this is a accurate sampling. I had forgotten about Matt Cauda! Sigh, young love.

    PS- Kristie, how did you not kill her in her sleep? She was so abusive.

  5. You know I get that question quite often, it's almost alarming...

    We all know Kelly's charm can get her out of basically anything.

  6. So I guess you were always obsessed with candy? It's nice to know things haven't changed.

  7. It's also nice to see that you've have a knack for writing catchy songs from an early age.

    p.s.
    I think I enjoy reading your diary entries here as opposed to the dramatic readings you make me sit through every night.
