Broken Door


11.30am

 

‘Beds Are Burning’ – Midnight Oil



 

Dear diary…

 

DREAMT:

Went to a Dance class late at nite in the Drama Studio.  Loads of people there.  I was also looking in a telephone book under the name GROOMSTOOL. 

 

Strange + boring, eh?

 

Later:

2pm

 

Oh, there was a macker explosion in Peterborough today – AND I HEARD IT FROM HERE!  BEAT THAT!

 

Later:

3pm

 

‘Marian (Version)’ – The Sisters of Mercy



 

Well, the garage door just fell off in my hands!  I’ll be slaughtered for that!  And how do I effectively wash the caravans (as requested by Freddie)?  I don’t know – so I’ll get killed for not doing that, too.  I’ve cleaned all the windows, though.  They’ll smear, though, I bet you!

 

Ah, yes!  The SISTERS.  I’m ready for this again.  ‘MARIAN’, especially.  I am suddenly able to accept it all again.  But how do I delve deeper into the dark places I once knew?  I feel like I’M the one drowning!

 

JEREMY HARDY IS GOOD. 


HE’S JUST BEEN ON SCRUPLES.

 

‘WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE GARAGE DOOR?’

 

SHAIT  SHAIGHT SHAIT SHAIT

 

IT’S GOOD THAT STAN’S WORKING AGAIN, TOO!

 

Later:

8pm.

 

‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ – Bauhaus



 

JONNY BADCOCK IS SO INTO BERWIN GROOMSTOOL.

 

QUESTIONS:

WHO IS FLASH’S ‘NEW FRIEND’ THAT HE’S NOT MET YET?

WHAT’S BEEN GOING ON AT LOLA’S?

WILL FLASH BE AT HOME WHEN I GET THERE TOMORROW?

 

AARDOO!  DO-DO-DO!

 

WHY ARE RITCHERD + FLASH SPIES FROM SCRUPLOS?

WHAT WAS THE DATA TAPE FOR?

 

I feel like terminating my newfound, wonderful relationship with Kat.  Why?  Cos for.  She and I have been close lately, and it’s true that deep down, as friends, we do love each other a great deal.  But now I just feel stunned and appalled that she’s going out with that HASSHOLE, Willock.  Again!  He’s no good for her.  And, as she’s my mate, I do love her so.  He’s been unfaithful before and he will be again.  I just hope he doesn’t hurt her.

 

Later:

 

‘Unzip’ – ABC



 

I’m chuffed off!  I wanted Flash + I to rewrite THE CHINESE PLAY together, but I no longer have a copy of the original script at home!  So BOOGAH!  We’ll just have to improvise.  It’ll be ‘SMAERG’ to see him again, though!

 

BLOODY BOOGAH.

 

THE GARAGE DOOR.  YEURGH!

 

THEY’VE JUST COME IN.  YAK!  YAK!  NOOOO!

 

I have to confess to you all, here and now, despite Emma Goddard, Simon Lewis or anyone else – I really fancy MAGGIE and want to go out with her!  Now if that’s not open, honest, forward and up front of me, then I don’t know what is.  She’s so nice-looking + I know I’ve hardly spoken to her, but I really do like her.  NO DENYING IT.

 

She’s shorter than me, with hair colour fairly similar to mine.  She wears smart black and is an ex-Goth.  But she still has an edge, that edge I’m trying to get back (lots of people are saying they preferred my look when it used to frighten them!).  She’s dead pleasant + looking for a wild time, if you ask me.

 

So, Maggie, what’s it to be?  Will we?  I’m not even going to try and engineer anything right now, though.  But I bet it’d be jolly lovely.

 

DON’T YOU?
