Just Seventeen

‘Like A Virgin’ – Madonna


I was supposed to meet Jazz, Dave and Stu in Wisbech, but they weren’t there. I bumped into BMW and we spent the afternoon together. It was good to see her – we haven’t been seeing enough of each other lately. I wasn’t sure it was really working, but we had a nice afternoon.

A boy who was reading Just Seventeen in Readwells (who seemed a bit camp, but in an interesting way) kept staring at me. Strange. I’ve often seen him in town – he looks nifty (like he might be a Japan fan or something), but I hope he doesn’t fancy me. Gulp! My reputation!
[IT WAS TIM TYLER WHO LATER BECAME A GOOD FRIEND OF ASTRA TRELLIS – Ritcherd ‘86]
I bought the Arcadia 12-inch. It’s ace!


I also bought 2000AD 443.


OLD DIARY ENTRIES…
This time 4 years ago:‘A brilliant new series of old Doctor Who stories began tonight called The Five Faces of Doctor Who. The first ever story – An Unearthly Child – is being shown this week, with part one being shown tonight. It was great to see it. Really weird…

Also watched Blake’s 7: Headhunter




…Good.’

This time last year:‘At school I’ve been hanging around with Dave Cooper, Stuart Rose and Scott Nicholas. Human Beatbox’s ex-girlfriend, Mandy Dell has started hanging around with us, too. She’s good looking.’
