Loving Jonny Badcock

My No.1: ‘It's Been A Long Time’ by Dead Or Alive


Today, I re-wrote THE CHINESE PLAY opening scene (‘God is mad and groovy’).


Jonny and I are really amazing mates.  It’s only sinking in just lately how close we are and how very often we both think + feel the same things at the same times.  Like there’s this girl at college I used to fancy who’s really ‘gothed-out’ just lately.  I saw her today and thought ‘male-type thoughts’.  Funnily enough, Jonny was thinking and feeling the same.  OK, that’s just one example, and not a very good one, but he’s really great.  He’s a lovely, reliable, trustworthy bloke. 


Jodie’s a good mate, too.  Now.  We’re not symbiotically close in the way Jonny + me are, but she’s a good friend, so there you go.  And that thing in moody old January was just an off-day or something.


Maggie wasn’t in today.  ‘Who was she with?’ I ask with a trembling lip.  This meant the poster wasn’t ready so I did it myself.  I don’t resent her for this – she didn’t have to do the damn thing – but I do feel slightly let down.
