The Winning Titan

3.30pm

‘Don Juan (Disco Mix)’ – Pet Shop Boys


I’m chuffed to bugger with good news!

I got a package in the post this morning, and in it was a letter that said:

DEAR RITCHERD, CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING A WINNER IN THE DR WHO MAGAZINE/TITAN SCRIPT BOOKS COMPETITION.  WE HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR COPY OF DR WHO THE SCRIPTS 3: THE TALONS OF WENG-CHIANG!
BEST WISHES, PAUL BENNETT, PUBLICITY ASST. TITAN BOOKS

And, yes, enclosed was said book – so I’m acely pleased!
 

Later:

‘Buoy’ – Mick Karn


Went to the pub with Wendy and her mate Anna tonite.  Good fun.  Jolly friendly.  She gave me some longing kisses before I went.  Mmmmm.

It was a great night, you know.  Wendy is…  How can I put it?  Well, at almost six-feet tall and slim and very mature, Wendy is… a real woman, y’know?  I was pleased to be able to spend time with her and for her to be so interested in me.  Honestly, though, I just felt like I was being totally boring.

She’s asked me to go with her to the Isle College disco on the 14th.  I agreed that I would.  She said she might not know if she’s going for certain till the 12th, so she’s going to ring me on Tuesday.  We’ve agreed to see each other again before she heads back to Cornwall on the 15th.  She really likes me which is just amazing.

I liked it when we kissed before I left.  It made me happy.
