Last night I went to Salon of Shame, where brave grownups read the most embarrassing entries from their teenage diaries.
The event organizer reads about her 16th birthday.
This guy reads a poem he wrote about a date gone bad.
Unicorn Power guy talks about Ali, the girl who broke his heart.
The Brooklyn version of this, which started first, is called "Cringe."
My preteen diary had a lock like the one shown here.
Another broken heart. Aww.
My pal Brangien had the best reading of the night, complete with photos that proved just how angsty she was at the time.
This guy read selections from the autobiography he wrote as an 11-year-old.
Jeannie MCs but never reads because, reportedly, she once burned all her diaries. A shame.
This local reporter read an unflattering report she wrote for -- and about -- her 8th grade English teacher.
And this reader also showed us the cheer she and her sister made up for high school cheerleading tryouts in like 1973.
She made the squad, hurray!
