This time 4 years ago:
‘Watched Doctor Who: Carnival Of Monsters (Part Two)…


This time 2 years ago:
‘Bought some comics:
Marvel Team-Up 137

Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man 86 and Marvel Tales 159

…Tonight I watched Johnny Jarvis Episode Two (1978-1979)…
…there were some brilliant twists and turns. Really loved it.’

This time last year:
‘I ended up going into Wisbech with Dave and Mandy, Stu and Legs. I got
2000AD 392 and this week’s UK Spider-Man Weekly

…I hated seeing Dave and Mandy together, but could only laugh inside. All Dave did was put his arm round her. He went at 3pm anyway, and Stu went at 4pm. Leaving Legs for a while, me an’ Mandy went down Scrimshaw’s Passage and she asked me to kiss her. I did, and she told me she was going to finish with Dave. I can’t stop thinking about her.’
