Early Birthday Cards


6.40pm-ish.

THE TOWER HALL, HILL STREET, WISBECH.

 

We’re rehearsing right now.  Skill, eh?  It’s chucking it down as Dan plays and Ash smokes.  It’s nice.  I feel very 1975/1976, like I’m watching Doctor Who in Rossington in DONCASTER.  Very Terror Of The Zygons.  Very Pyramids Of Mars.  I like this feeling.  So very 1975/1976 sort of thing.  NICE!  NICE!  NICE!

 

Later:

'Puss 'n' Boots' - Adam Ant


I had a ‘letter’ sent to me today (addressed to ‘Winterfood The Omnipotent???’).  It was from Kat and it came in what she has described as ‘a raunchy purple envelope’.  It is an early Birthday card, which she made herself.  On the front is a brilliant picture of Smith, with the legend:

 

‘ON THE FIRST DAY, GOD MADE SMITH!’

 

And Smith is saying, ‘Hello Boys!!!’

 

She has also drawn an enormous bulge in his jeans and added the words:

 

‘LOOK AT MY EXTREMELY HUGE WILLY!!?’

 

Inside, Kat has written:

 

‘Hello Boys,

 

Happy Birthday

Berwin,

 

Now let’s be sensible,

Happy Birthday Jez

 

Love

Kat xx’

 

Ash also gave me a card, bless him.  It’s great as well cos on the front it’s got a picture of a mouse singing into a microphone.  Inside, written with some brilliant almost pictographic lettering he’s put:

 

‘To

Jez

 

Happy Birthday

 

AsH

X’
