Plotting A Return To College


EXTREMELY EARLY AM.

 

‘Nobody’s Fault But Mine’ – Led Zeppelin



 

A man with a sharp head, watches the bulbous and voluptuously round dribble of snot fall from his razor sharp nose…

 

Ritcherd + Love Interest = TWATTER!!!

 

Led Zep are on the Mr Twurly, which is something…

 

Flashshould be here, folks.  It’d make life much more pleasant.

 

A pretty (but simple) flower, radiating joy and love…

 




 

Ritcherd?!

Sex + Love + the passion of lovers is for = Kat

 

NAT, was it ever meant to be?

 

It must have been.  Now MARK is gone…

 

So why can’t I stop thinking WAS IT REALLY MEANT TO BE?

 

Perhaps I’ll stop being quite so metaphysical from now on and just give you a ‘day-by-day’ account of what actually occurs in my life.  Just the bare facts, no conjecture, no dreams, no philosophy, no ideas.  No crap.

 

OF COURSE, WHAT HAPPENED ON SATURDAY NIGHT, I WANTED TO HAPPEN.

 

Oh.  I’ll stop.  This is useless.  It’s clichéd Jez material.

 

I’M USELESS!!!

 

NATALIA will write and I’ll take up the subject then.

 

MY BANDS: Dark Is Desire, Led Zeppelin, Propaganda, Throwing Muses, Dead Can Dance, Kate Bush, Diamanda Galas, and Wire… but that’s only today…

 

MY RECORDS: ‘Partners In Crime’ by Dark Is Desire, ‘Going To California’ by Led Zep, ‘Delicate Cutters’ by Throwing Muses, and ‘P-Machinery’ by Propaganda.

 

MY DOCTOR WHO NOVELIST: Ian Marter.  He’s skill! 


I’ve just finished reading Enemy Of The World, and it’s a fabulous book!  I was hooked!

 

Later:

LATE AT NIGHT.

 

‘Poison Door’ – The Sisters of Mercy



 

Hideous spiny, spiky organic creatures creeping around the room…

 

The weather-faced man with the short spiky hair, furry jumper and Cuban-heeled boots asks,

‘WHY DO THEY KILL CHILDREN?’

 

‘Why do we always fail?’

 

DARK IS DESIRE: accept no substitute

 

A blackened, twisted skeleton, disregarded…

 

‘Love In The First Degree’ – Bananarama



 

I AM IN THE PROCESS OF ATTEMPTING A RETURN TO COLLEGE.  LARRY GOODGIRL, MY FORMER THEATRE STUDIES TUTOR HAS BEEN EXTREMELY HELPFUL.  I HAVE STARTED FILLING IN THE FORMS, etc, THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO DO THE BTEC ‘PERFORMING ARTS’ COURSE.  I PRAY THAT KATRISHA WILL ALSO ENROLL.  I’LL NEED A FRIEND IN THAT LONELY, HORRIBLE PLACE…
