Gillian in High School

When we responded to Deep Thought with our findings, he replied with a "{snicker}". He continued, "So close! But 1983 is when it all began." He attached this photo to his e-mail, which our experts said was probably Gillian (or the clone), a year older than our "1982" snapshot, with a better hairstyle, and a somewhat rebellious, smart-mouthed attitude. In other words: 9th grade. "I don't remember who took this picture," Deep Thought added, "but I was photo editor that year, so there's a good chance that I did.

We were impressed by his resources, and his claim to be a schoolmate of Gillian explained how he could know so much. But so far he hadn't produced anything that a reasonably good detective or stalker couldn't have come up with.
