‘Life In Tokyo’ – Japan

At school, Mr Monk asked for my 200-word essay on obeying school rules. I politely told him that I refuse to do it and that I felt he was being unfair. It was fascinating because I spoke to him as eloquently as I could, in reasoned tones, with full eye contact and vivid determination. He clearly wasn’t expecting such a considered and intelligent response and I don’t think he could cope. He stormed off, red-faced, spluttering and angry. Getting pretty anarchic, aren’t I?

Actually, I felt ill this afternoon, so I went up to The King Arthur and stayed at George’s until Mum could pick me up.

I’m into Japan (the band) again. But really, this time...

This is mostly thanks to the wonderful Astra Trellis who’s been lending me Japan (and Jesus and Mary Chain) singles. I’m starting to get a bigger picture and I love ‘Life In Tokyo’.

I think I need to go to bed now.

Gosh. What will the rest of the year bring?

Bye, chiddies!
