‘The Rhythm Blooded’ – Grace Jones
KER-NACKERED OR WHAT?
I done feck all today, ‘cept revise.
Freddie went to a boot sale and bought me the 12-inch of Bowie’s ‘When the Wind Blows’.
Not the greatest record in the universe, but I really appreciate the thought. And it didn’t cost me, so it’s all right. Seriously though, Freddie and I seem to be getting on a lot better these days. Things seem okay with Betty, too. Maybe Chip’s having a calming effect on us all? I mean, we all muck in and do our bit. I know I got annoyed with my squarents quite a lot earlier in the year, but mostly I think it comes down to their inability to communicate with me directly. I don’t know why they’re so rubbish at that. I guess I miss the method my last dad, George, used to employ which was – shock of all horrors – to sit and chat with me. Like we were mates. And he always gave good advice without being preachy. I know it must be weird for Freddie.
After dinner, I revised for about 4 hours, listened to some Nephilim, had a bath and then listened to Gene Loves Jezebel whilst crimping my hair – strand by strand – and writing to Naomi at the same time.
I bet I fail my exams and get kicked outta tech. I don’t want that. But it’ll happen.
