Dyan is another classmate who came and went very quickly. I believe she joined us at Clarke for 8th grade. She was a one-year-wonder.

I had her in Mr. Swokowski's art class. She kind of had a thing for Ross Hofmann. Dyan was a girl who seemed to think she was really hot shit. In reality, she was lukewarm - at best. She wore a buttoned shirt nearly every single day of the year.

According to Meff, this girl bugged the shit out of him. In fact, she used to pick on him, call him names, be a total bitch to him for no reason whatsoever. This happened in Mr. Franke's class. I think it was during homeroom. Finally on the last day of the school year, Meff snapped. It takes a lot to get Meff to snap. But he did. What did he do? He put his hands around her neck and choked her. He wasn't playing around either. He literally wrenched her throat and prevented her from breathing. Finally, after several seconds, he let go. Dyan's head slumped onto the table with a thud. She was crying. She was beside herself. Someone helped her out fo the room. And she was never seen again.

That story creeps me out. But no, Dyan didn't die or anything. Her family must have moved. Perhaps she didn't want to deal with the infamous Two Rivers strangler anymore. Dyan apparently moved out west to Idaho. She's lived in the area ever since. However it now looks like she's relocated to Nevada, a few miles south of the Idaho border. It looks like she's married, and is now known as Dyan Hall.

I remember Meff telling me that story. I thought he was kidding. Apparantly not.

The one thing I remember about Dyan is "yippie skippie" she said it all the time, ugh, drove me nuts, but she was a pretty nice person over all.

The Two Rivers Strangler was in my house last night!

Seriously, I never would have guessed this about Jeff. Of course, "yippee skippy" just about drives me over the edge, too. Ugh.
