Farewell Party


ASHTON STREET

It’s 6.30pm (ish).

 

‘Stakker Humanoid’ – Humanoid



 

Well, Gerry’s just been in to give me a hug + a kiss because I just gave her a big ‘THANK YOU’ card for all the things she does for me when I come up here to see Flash (letting me stay, etc.).

 

Later:

 

‘The 1989 Metropolitan Mixdown, pt.1’ – Yello



 

RAQUEL WRITES:

 

HI DIARY!

 

Hey up, cocker!  Raight, listen-up:  FLASH, RITCHERD & I have had a

 

Puma

 

Week, so up yours, matey-boy, chummy pal.

 

Oh, soz – FALOOFAMACHISMOSOLO – I inadvertently forgot…

 

JESSICA

(Aussie, wobatted, pooh-knickered twat-snot)

 

AND HERE IS A MESSAGE FOR THE SLIGHTLY CONFUSED MR BERWIN GROOMSTOOL HIMSEN:

 

Up yours, cos we’ve got some raight snaps o’ thee!  They’re coming to take thee away – boom-boom!

 

We’ve got thee this time, cocker!

 

Any road down, what an interesting time we gluttons had.

 

BEDDIE-BYES!

 

(Read Lord of the Rings again, Martin Jarvis, or we’ll bray you o’er!)

 

Anyway, Ritcherd, me old mate, Flash & I love you lots.  Come to see us again soon.  Maybe one day, instead o’ studying Brecht & Stanislavsky, the Ritcherd method will reign.

 

Lotsaluv ‘n’ stuff

 

RAQUEL

 

PS.  Can’t wait for the holiday, cos I’m off to babber in yer rucksack.

 

Later:

 

The ‘party’ and ringing LOLA’S!

 

Today, Flash + I went into Castleford (Cas Vegas?  Near Ponte Carlo?) and bought some records.  I got Part 2 of that Yello 12-inch collection




Flash bought himself Yello’s ‘The Race’.

 

As we went to the Off Licence for some booze, I noticed the air smelled of DOGSHIT, and we went on to count 86 individual piles of SHIT in the streets as we journeyed there and back – and it was only a few 100 yards!

 

This evening, we readied ourselves and Raquel came over, as did Dad + Annie and we all got merry.  But Raquel had to go home fairly early which pissed Flash (and me) off.

 

I’ll miss her.

 

Dad + Annie eventually went + I dared Flash to go to LOLA’S and ask ‘DAVE’ what his name is.  So we went in and bought a bag of chips, but we were too scared to ask – and HE’S HAD A SHORT BACK + SIDES!
