I knew that would get your attention. ;)

Speaking of which, here's a little "diary" I found in a thrift store today. From the lettering and pictures, I'm guessing that it's from the 1930s. The front and back covers are wood. Fun, eh?

Wow, that's pretty cool Marc. For some reason, reminds me of that game Mystery Date.

I like the quaint ditty on the cover:

"Happy thoughts within
Many will I treasure
Should it hold the -
special
'HIM'
This book I'll keep
forever."


All the (remaining) pages inside are blank. Either no dates occurred, or the former owner removed the filled-in pages.

You think she'll go for eyeless Joe, one eye stick man Jim, or hatless one eye Bob? (eye complaints were sooo prevalent in the 30s. What's a gal to do?)

Joe looks suspiciously like the invisible man.

The one-eyed guy with the tie is actually kinda hot. Got that whole sly devil-may-care charm going for him...

Rosie -- I *loved* Mystery Date! I always wanted to end up with the bowling guy...

Cheeky! :) I'm away to consult my PI astrological charts re the 3 tasty guys she's put in there. I'm pretty sure we're looking at a Scorpio, and a Leo or perhaps an Aries, and the last guy just shot past the moon.... :D This could be definitive stuff!

Two out of the three characters are wearing hats! Great!

If this book came out today, those pages would include his email address, website, cell number...

Bachelor #2 is not only a one-eyed stick figure man, but also has a cane for his lame leg and is holding his chest due his heart condition. Clearly this little black book belongs to a gold digger.

Marc's discovered Anna Nicole Smith's diary!

Don't even want to know what he had to do to get it :eek:
