Just So Very Tech



 

 
Today was just so very Tech, y’know?

 

I wore the usual gear: biker’s jacket, black jumper, ‘Death’ T-shirt, tight black jeans with golden ASF designs (in bleach), old ‘goth’ boots, tassle belt. 

 

On top of the usual gear, I added my studded belt and a piece of blue + red material, which at one mo’ was wrapped ‘round the ankle of my old ‘goth’ boots and then later round my neck like a cowboy scarf.  On the Drama Studio floor, I found an Indian style scarf in green + black + wrapped it into my belt loops on my waist.  I ended up lending it to Anastasia for a bit.  She can keep it until I actually want to wear it.

 

Nightingale Simon came in today, looking steadily ‘un-goth’.  Good.  He looked great, wearing ‘goth’ boots, black baggy combat army style trousers (but very fashionable), a Nephilim T-shirt and a Dan Dare style Flying Jacket.  Good stuff!

 

Nyall and I were cold to each other today, which is unhappy.  Amelia was nice, though, and, on top of this, I’ve got Simone reading Marvel comics.

 

Oh.  A girl ‘fancies’ me.  I don’t know her name, but there’s a gang of three of ‘em.  I think they’re all very upper-trendy and do Beauty Therapy.  One of them goes out with Graham and she’s vaguely ‘Gothing-out’; another is tall with short hair and ‘fancies’ Danny; the third, I’m told, likes me.  She’s nice-looking, Auburn haired and casually dressed.  I can’t say I’m sure if she fancies me or not.  I don’t think I’m interested.  We’ll see what happens.  Life’s strange.

 

Justine has not replied.  This is very unmerrrymaking of her.
