All Kinds of Crazy Love

Early Evening

‘The Other Side of Life’ – Japan

Well, DOCTOR WHO’s taking me over, yet again.  I’ve been up to various things: entered three Doctor Who competitions (for a BBC VIDEO, a TOM BAKER VIDEO, and a copy of the VOYAGER graphic novel), wrote a letter to DWM (offering a theory about the history of the Daleks), and wrote to both Sylvester McCoy + Sophie Aldred.  Then, what am I doing now?  Sending off for a couple of properly reproduced photos from ‘The Daleks and The Chase.

Life’s good.

Paula’s been staying over.  She’s still seeing her 36-year-old, which is interesting.

Oh aye, BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES is on telly this week.


‘Licence To Kill’ – Gladys Knight

I wrote to her today.


When you saw me in the Market Place, did you want to say hello?  I did, but you’d turned away.

Where have you been the last few months?  No-one’s seen or heard from you for ages.  Please write to me and tell me about it.

It’s our fourth ‘anniversary’ soon.  Would you like to do anything about it?

Much love,

I need her again.  I really do.  But then, I suppose Dalton does too.  Popular rumour seems to suggest she’s been living with him for ages.  In Portsmouth or somewhere.  So that’e where she’s been all these months?  She’ll tell me to ‘fuck off’ no doubt.  I always need her in the end, though.  Is that because our partings are always so jagged?  So untidy?  I spent the most time with her than anyone else I’ve been with.  It’s a bond, to me. 

Let’s try again?  Last time, I was scared, that autumn evening as it ended.  Couldn’t fight back.  Didn’t want the hell.  But I’ll fight for you now.  I really will.  Write back to me.
