‘Waterloo Sunset’ – The Kinks
It’s raining and I feel very tranquil. Peaceful.
I hope Flash moves to Wales. It’d be great. I’d like to have a friend to stay with in Wales. I’ve never been to Wales…
God. I feel peaceful. I bet I don’t later on, tho’. I’ve got stacks of homework ‘n’… oh shit … let’s not think about it, eh, Jezebel?
‘Before Doubt’ – Gene Loves Jezebel

‘The Sweetest Thing’ – Gene Loves Jezebel
I went up town and spent a while with Danny and then Astra and Hazel. I have a lark, don’t I? The awful thing today was exiting Readwells and walking straight into BMW and Bastard Ass!!! I ignored them. Or, at least, I tried.
I sent a letter to Flash. It probably won’t arrive. It was in really shit condition.
