Culver City Centaurs drop to second place after losing to Luezinger


November 13, 1964, Friday.

Pearl and I babysat for my little sister Billee and my brother, Preston. We decided not to go anywhere, because, we’re tired of just driving around looking for boys and it was too cold to go to the Football game, which we lost. Now we’re not in the big league with Westchester High School. We just read and did homework. I’ve got the lead in the Senior school play! Now I have to stay after school everyday until 5:30. It’s called Home Sweet Homicide and it’s a comedy murder mystery. Pearl’s in it too.  I don’t think I’m going to my second audition tomorrow for that acting group we found in the paper. Lyla says it’s a racket and I’m going to try out instead, for The Sound of Music!

I wasn’t a big Football Fan and never had any interest in dating a Football star.  I was a Surfers Rule kind of chick who only cared about being seen on the beach… at cool drive-in restaurants, in my bitchen 57, blue and white, Bel Air Chevy, or at a happening party.  But, I was very disappointed when Culver lost this game and didn’t get to be in the Big League with Westchester High… where all the cool Surfers I dated went to school.
