Fly Fishing by JR Hartley


‘Top of the Wheel’ – Hazel O’Connor




Written in my Filofax by Donna ‘Dave/Double D’ Davidson


‘I FEEL QUITE HORNY TODAY, ACTUALLY, BUT TOM ISN’T HERE TO SCREW ME.  THAT’S CRUDE.  RITCHERD, IT’S BEEN REALLY NICE CHATTING TO YOU AFTER SUCH A LONG TIME OF NOT HAVING MUCH TO SAY TO EACH OTHER.  I’M GLAD YOU MENTIONED YOUR DIARIES AGAIN.  YIPPEEE!  I NEED A GOOD READ.  I LIKE RITA’S HAT.  THOUGH NOW I’VE SEEN THE FILM, I REALISE OUR ROCKY HORROR IS A TOTAL RIP-OFF!’

 

It might well be, but then I don’t suppose it can help it.  Can it?  Though I did see Daniel directing some of his performers today by showing them the movie and saying ‘You should be doing it like this’.

 

But what do I know?

 

Well, I know this much: I love spending time with Daniel.  He’s such a good mate.  And so is Jonny.  We’re the JR Hartley gang.  We can’t stop doing his voice and saying, ‘Do you have a copy of Fly-Fishing by JR Hartley?’ 
 


And we make a nuisance of ourselves when we go shopping for things for Drama prizes + presents for the Awards Evening.  Oh, we’ve also booked 20-odd physical awards for the REAL ceremony too.

‘Oh god.  What do I want to do?  I can’t act for toffee.  What would I act in?  Oh god, I’m a talentless bastard.  I really am.  I can’t do fuck all.  I’m shit + bollocks.  I’m getting close to being in something of a physical state about all this stuff.  All of this College work and all of these College people.  Let me cry.  Let me die.  Why am I like this?  Give me that time off to get away.

 

Oh god, help me.

 

I need this ten weeks off now.

 

To regenerate.  And reformulate myself.  Get me away.

 

Roll on 1st July.

 

I hate this feeling of inadequacy.

 

I’m a shit bastard.

 

Fuck off!’

‘I’M BORED OUT OF MY FRIGGING BRAINS, BUT WHO GIVES A TOSS?!  I WANT LARRY BACK!  NOW, PLEASE, SO THAT WE CAN HAVE NORMAL LESSONS AGAIN!’

 

Later:

 

Today, I went into Wisbech, then King’s Lynn with Jo Jordan and we chatted at length.  She should be coming into Tech to see me this week.  That’s good of her.

 

Later:

 

I noticed again today that Emma was giving me the cold shoulder.
