I typed in old journals, watched the “Matrix” on video — on my NEW TV! Then I went to Shawnee & watched “The Champion” (starring Carman) at the theater. I picked up a hitch-hiker on the way there. He seemed a little unbalanced, mentally, but gave me two packs of cigarettes & didn’t cause any[...]
[An unexplained break in dating precedes this entry*] I bought a car — 1993 Chevy Corsica — in January, and then moved into a new apartment in Seminole in February. It was a busy time, and apparently, I did not record much of it. I continued to work at Wrangler.

Watched “The Firm” (VHS), then wrote a letter to Mark Hurst. Took that letter & the “thank you” notes for last week’s house-warming party to the Post Office,[...]
