Someone else mentioned they saw, on the next page of the diary, "Made
some extra $$ today" (or something like that).

A whorehouse is often called a cathouse.  All the girls at One-Eyed
Jack's wore collars.  I think this is strong evidence that Laura got
involved in prostitution there.

I think Lynch is too creative to use a random red herring (who cares
if Laura has a pet cat?)  If he's going to the trouble of writing old
diary entries, then he's doing it for a real reason, not just to
confuse us.  Lynch loves to drop bizarre hints that *become
significant later*, e.g. Leo slicing up the football.  (Did anyone
else notice that Leo's fancy car was visible (though under wraps) from
the 0th episode?  Good hint for drug-dealing.)

If Lynch bothered to put it on camera, then it's related to the
current story.  Have faith in Lynch; he's too smart to be random.
