Under Milk Wood


MARCH

12.50pm


 

‘What Have I Done To Deserve This?’ – Pet Shop Boys



 

Dear diary,

 

OUT NOW:

Berwin Groomstool’s new single: ‘THE “GIZMETYINKEH” EP’

+ The Situation’s ‘THE CHINESE PLAY – LIVE’ video

 

Under Milk Wood at the Welsh Evening tonite.

 

I should be at college.

 

I’m not.

 

I lost my voice this morning + felt so horrid, so I laid in bed, feeling doomed.

 

I’d better get ready now + go in.  They can’t do it without me.  I would be as bad as those I’ve put down if I didn’t go in and do it.  Even so, I feel disgustingly ill.

YAK!  I’M UNDER THE WEATHER, LADS!

 

Later:

 

‘This Charming Man’ – The Smiths



 

The Welsh Evening went well.  Remember that for one term in 1986 there was a girl in our TS group called Anita Wotsit?  She was in the audience tonite.  We mouthed ‘hi’ to each other + she yelled ‘HOW’S BERWIN?!’, which was quite lovely.

 

Sorry I was ill, Emma.
