Jan. 21, 1992
Today in Mrs. Wites room we got our workbooks. It was just a regular day other wise. I liked the fruit leather that Mom gave me for lunch. Alexa and some other people were asking me if I could give them some. I wish Nikias hadent gone away to another school. Marni kept bothering me in ‘hockey.’ (Marni always bothers me).

And those are my first four diary entries. I was about 13 in 1990. To hear more diary entries from other adults–plus florid poems, weepy hyperbolic love letters, catty, vapid passed notes, and epic, retarded song lyrics, go to The Tank tonight for the legendary MORTIFIED NYC! It’s a night where grown-ups share the most embarrassing products of their adolescence. It’s been featured on This American Life and praised by many media (The Today Show, All Things Considered, Esquire, Marie Claire, The Onion, etc.).

PLUS there will be extra-special guest Judy Blume, the weaver of many of our childhood dreams, fears, and elaborate fantasies. [Whoops, my mistake--that's NOT happening this time, sorry!] This is an extremely popular event, I recommend visiting this website for $10 tickets. Otherwise, just get there early (starts at 8pm) and hope that there’s room, and it’ll cost you $12.
