My No.1: ‘Tell Me When the Fever Ended’ by Electribe 101

Went to The Woodman’s Cottage for a Christmas meal with the family today.  I met Betty’s waitress friends, Sarah and Jayne who are both splendidly gorgeous. 

Later, I went to The Angel, which was dull, but Matty and Rod were there and they were okay.

I rang Flash and then I rang Miranda Wasp

Mirandas’ Mum: Hello?
Ritch: Hello, is Miranda there, please?
MM: No, she’s out with you.
R: Sorry?
MM: You are in Wisbech, aren’t you?
R: Yes.
MM: Isn’t she with you, Mark?
R: No, this is her friend: Jez
MM: Jess?
R: Er, yes.
MM: Oh.  Oh.  Well, sorry.
R: That’s okay.
MM: I’m sorry, I … I don’t know where she is.  Goodbye.

Strange, eh?

I’m assuming she’s back with Mark Dalton then…
