August 24, 1964, Monday. Party at Toes was called off
Went to the beach at 10:30 until 12:30. My sister Donna and her friend Terri Thompson had to be rescued by a life guard, because they were being thrown against the rocks at the jetty. When they came out, I couldn’t help laughing. Howard was cold to me and had a hangover. Went to Pearl’s pool until 3:00. Came home and Daddy was mad about my car. He said it was ruined for good and it was my fault! They bugged me about getting a job to pay for my own car. They brought it to the stations to be fixed and it’s going to cost about $25 – $30 dollars. I’ve got to get a job, I’m so scared to think of next year and I don’t even have a boyfriend!! Plus I’m fat!! The party was called off at Toes, which ruined my night. Pearl came over and we went cruising. The’re working on our new pool being built.
I think I laughed because it was embarrassing to have a cute lifeguard rescue you at Toes, in front of all the Surfers. I feel bad I laughed at them.
I felt like such a looser, ruining my car and I knew my parents were disappointed when I blew my audition and was disqualified at the Miss Culver City Contest. Now the only thing left for me was to get a dumb job.
I wasn’t qualified to do anything but look cute and sit at the beach in a bikini. I wanted a career as an actress not a job as who knows what.
