Maggie Writes Back

‘(The Truth Is) Of Course I’m Lying’ – Yello


TODAY, I saw Maggie briefly and spent time with best college mates Jodie + Jonny, bitching the kids off.



Willock and Leighton came in.  Moving targets.


Maggie wrote back…


In the letter, she thanks me for the tape + letter, which she’s been playing continuously.  Her favourite track is ‘Evergreen’ by Into A Circle.  She apologises for not talking much at the end of last week; she was pissed off, so spent time down the pub with her friend Verity.  She’s also been hanging out with Vinnie + Dom (otherwise known as Lipstick Vogue, some old faces from the Videodome days of 1986; Drag Queen competitions, student strikes, and all that) and asks me not to tell Simon.  She tells me she’s glad we got talking and she likes me.  She tells me that on Sunday, she Gothed-up and went out, but now she’s dreading another week in lodgings and another week of Simon ignoring her.  She says he hasn’t spoken to her since Thursday when she first went out with Verity and the Videodome boys.  She no longer sees the point in them carrying on and is planning on finishing with him.  She says she had a fun weekend and got extremely drunk.


I want to be her best mate sometimes.  I have written her another letter.
