Saturday Sightings

‘Ancient Evening’ – David Sylvian

I awoke!  Yes, it’s true.  I really did wake up this morning!!!

I eventually reached town – in my sort-of-new coat – and wandered around feeling well part of things as they stands thse days.  In ANDREWS, I bumped into a girl who used to go to Wetlands.  Her name is Maria and she was my wife in my original performance of Brecht’s The Caucasian Chalk Circle.  Amazing, eh?  In WH SMITH’S, I bumped into Danny Oliver and I dossed around with him and his girlfriend for a while, before going it alone.



At one point, I saw Mark DaltonBMW’s boyfriend – but obviously not to talk to.

Later on, I bumped into Sue Evans – BMW’s friend.  We chatted and she was interested in how much I’d changed.  Y’see, she didn’t recognise me at first.  She reckons everyone is changing.  BMW among them.  She mentioned Sophie Fisher and then we moved on to Make-Up, who she misses.  And apparently BMW saw me outside the Grammar School yesterday.  Wonder what she thought?!

SCANDAL!  THE WISBECH STANDARD published an article on TRIANGLIA and it gave a supposedly full cast list – minus my name and that of Stan Flowers!  I AM OUTRAGED!!!

Returning home this evening, I did fek + fook all.


But The Omen was on today. 
I’m slightly into horror stories again.  And in WH SMITH’S, I contemplated reading (not there and then, but eventually) AUDREY ROSE

Aren’t I a real psycho-dickhead, eh?
