Saturday, I worked on my letter to Stephanie J. I never quite got the [guts] I needed to tell her how I feel. But I hinted pretty strongly, and used choice quotes from my old letters to her. I also included some of the newer poems I’ve written to her. Maybe she’ll get the point.[...]
Gilbert handed out our paychecks as soon as we got to work & then let us go (since it’s inventory weekend — we don’t have to be back till Tuesday at 08:00.) So I cashed my check then drove to OKC (& went to Best Buy) & bought a DVD player, “End Of Days” (on[...]
Another beautiful day has come and gone, and what did I do with it? Not much. I had an “okay” day at work, finishing 40 bundles by 2:00pm, which is when I left the plant. I came home & typed in a few of my journals, through December 2000. Then I watched “News Radio” reruns.[...]
NOTE: I was just reading my old letters (as I converted them from WPT to Word97), and I came across a reference to Sonya Bryant in a letter to Stephanie J., dated Jan. 16, 1998. So, apparently, I met Sonya earlier than I’d thought.

YES! I’m finally typing CURRENT journals into MY OWN computer! What a relief! Of course, I still plan to use my notebook on occasion. For instance, if I’ve already readied myself for bed and the computer is shut down — if I have a “final thought of the day”, I may jot it down, then[...]
finished converting “Adult Journal” files, through Nov. 2000. Now, I just need to type in the journals from this notebook (“Darker Blue Notebook”) and all my future journals will be on computer. Watched “News Radio” reruns. Realized that if I drink two Tequizas per day, that’s $60 per month for beer, so I will discontinue[...]
“Poetry on the Rocks” at NG’s canyon — very enjoyable, especially the cowboy poems. Again saw Rachel, one of the cute girls from NG’s class in Shawnee (the one I spoke at last fall). Helped D & Z with hauling some fallen trees to brush piles. Watched Spurs win Game 1 of the first round[...]
