Got a fair amount accomplished today – caught up diary, wrote thank you notes to Lucy, Liza + Bill Alexander. Typed another copy of the George Carlin interview + sent it to Mother + Daddy with note. Fixed ham slices, salad + broccoli. Got my Thyroid Rx renewed. Peter fixed the record player – was home as the club was closed. I washed the kitchen floor + put 2 coats of wax on it. Went over to Dr. Ware’s to see the thing he’d been fixing for Mother + Daddy. It’s really very cute. Only danger is their not knowing the safety pin is real gold. Eve Lee came by + we all had a drink. She gave me Jim + Fran Rowe’s address so I can send the Savory-Arte Newsletter. Home at 6 o’clock. Finished cleaning up + set the table. called Las Lomas + spoke to Margie about doing something for the Golden Wedding. Told her I’d see her on Saturday. James arrived about 7:30. Timmy awhile after. It was a pleasant evening up to a point (James never pleasanter) + that point was when Peter brought out the 2 1/2 sticks of marijuana that have been sitting in the kitchen for almost 2 months + smoked 1/2 at the table. I was furious. Of all the really pointless put downs that was the worst. James spent the night, had too much beer + went to bed about 1 am. Peter + I then had more beer got really drunk + went at each other hammer + tong.
A day of hangover + general distaste – Made an appt. with the Pat Walker salon on Wilshire near Fairfax for tomorrow at 4 o’clock. Have a massage etc at 2:00 – I’ll get into shape if it kills me + it may. Steve Kay called from New York + Peter may have another Bayer Aspirin recording date on Monday in New York. When I got up this morning – Peter had done all the dishes from last night. A really glorious surprise and one that almost put the day in focus. I started using the relaxacisor on my face today – see if I can get rid of the bags under my eyes. Mary Parker came in for a while + chatted. Tonight was the night Paul introduced us to the pleasures of pot and we had dinner upstairs – lamb curry. Delicious. Peter had 3 or 4 drinks first while he worked on his tape. I was fairly clear headed. First a feeling of deep depression then a very silly laughing jag and then a complete detachment. Actually it seems similar (to me) to Sodium pentothol [Pentothal] or analgesic. Peter felt very disoriented + went straight to sleep. I went to sleep later but easily
