New Year's Eve 1990

‘I Was Wrong’ – The Sisters of Mercy

I was just sitting in the living room when I realised what time it was.
Flash and I left Polly’s today and came back to Blackberry Narrow, Wisbech St. Mary to do what we always do when we get together, which is catch up on each other’s diaries (‘a diary sesh’).  We’ve also started a Situation tape, which we might pick up on a bit later (along with a video, both under the prospective title Shightmare, which is a phrase coined by Polly Willis).
Sammy + Polly are here and staying the nite, and it’s curry time (they offered to cook us up a feast and have done so!).
‘Honky Tonk Women’ – The Rolling Stones

The future will be here in 1991.
1990’s been a beautiful year (and I need to be able to go forward and be with Polly alone from now on, and love her as much as she seems to love me).
Thank you, universe (of which I am but one part of its sensual expression; so, like each and every human, a god walking the Earth; yep, we’re all Jesus, if you like).  Thank you so much.
‘Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic’ – The Police

Final words for tonite?
I love you, Polly.
Please love me back.
