Justine Black Flashback

LATE

‘E.S.T.’ – Alien Sex Fiend

Donna Davidson amazes me.  She says I’m ‘weird’ because I talk about famous murders and horror films every now and again, applying them to real life and people I know.  Doesn’t everyone?

Back at Tech, it was nice to see the folks I’d missed, even if THAT faction still slags me and Donna off.

Spent most of the day with good old Peter Conti.  Donny was in loads of exams.  Mind you, whenever he wasn’t, he spent all his time with Jonny Badcock, which is kind of ironic.

Nice to see Fergie and nice to see Amy (although she seems to think I don’t like her for some reason, which is weird).  Also nice to see Leo, Cheryl, Caroline, and all kinds of others – though many of them seem distant again.  As if we’ve all drifted.  I don’t like that.

Well, I sent my grant form off to Cambridge County Council, and a letter to Minty and another to Miranda Wasp.

‘Trojans’ – The Damned

Tonite, I bumped into old TRIANGLIA chum, the very nice and rather beautiful Audrey – still looking great.  She and I went ‘round for a bit and have agreed to go for a drink some time.


Also tonite, I had a surprise phone call from someone I haven’t spoken to since January 1989: Justine Black.  Remember her?  Well, she rang to apologise for being horrible in her second year (when we drifted); she put it down to illness and insecurity.  I must say it was nice to hear from her, and it felt good.  She didn’t get her A-levels – which came as a huge shock – and is now a Care Assistant in a nursing home.  We promised to stay in touch.

Life, eh?
