Needing Christmas

The Time: 1.50pm.

The Place: Number 12, Donna’s place.


‘Babooshka’ – Kate Bush


Oh, how we move.  How time moves.  Is it really the dusk of 1988?  Have we truly come so far?  How I have dearly loved this year, the variety, the changes, the friends, and the happiness. 


And only ten more college days until we break for Chrimbo.


I await Christmas – my favourite time of year – with outstretched arms. 


I shall miss Donna at Christmas.  And I’ll miss Justine.  And all my friends.


‘Delius’ – Kate Bush


Even so, I NEED Christmas.  I really NEED it.  What would life be like without Christmas?  Without beautiful carolling?  I would so miss ‘In The Bleak Mid-Winter’, ‘Hark!  The Herald Angels Sing’, ‘God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen’ and many others…


I need Flash.  Oh god, I need Flash.  He’s such a mate.  My own, my very own.  My ever lasting.  My constant.  I’ve been missing him a lot, lately.  A real lot.  I just can’t wait to see him, I really can’t.


‘It’ll End In Tears’ – This Mortal Coil


I’m missing Flash.


I’m extremely tired.  I’ll go home soon.


I still fancy gorgeous goth-girls of the Rose McDowall type, all crimped black hair and ribbons…
