Bond-mania!

10am

IT’S SO CRAP HERE AT WORK.  I REALLY HATE IT.  THE ATMOSPHERE, THE HOURS, THE DIRT, THE FLIES; THE SHEER IRRITATION + LACK OF HYGIENE.  THE VERBAL ABUSE, TOO.  AND THE MEAGRE WAGE.  ROLL ON, FRIDAY.

Later:

11.20pm

‘Major General Despair’ – Crass

I have a lot of confidence in Michael Keaton.



Oh, and why does no-one write to me?  Am I that pathetic and stinking and horrible?  Am I?

Well, answer me.

No.

No, don’t bloody bother.  I’ve had it up to my eyeballs with all that.

THE QUESTION IS:

‘WILL ASTRA TRELLIS ARRIVE AT BLACKBERRY NARROW TOMORROW NIGHT IN ORDER TO CUT MY HAIR?’

THE ANSWER WILL DOUBTLESS BE:

‘Only one man can cross, as the other is a dwarf.’

‘Angela Rippon’ – Crass

I think I am becoming obsessed with James Bond

 
Do you realise I still haven’t seen: Dr No, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, and The Living Daylights.

I’d love to watch the whole lot in order.  I wish someone I knew had the entire video collection.  I’m definitely after a soundtracks LP.

My favourite Bond themes:
LICENCE TO KILL

Auntie Janet, Great Uncle Norman + Tracey are staying here at our place, as well as Gran + Granddad Pritchard.  It’s good!
