The Return of Polly Willis

‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ – Slade

 
Today, I went to Johnny’s and we both went out to the Wenns where I chatted to Roger Watson, Lilith’s friend Bobby, Luggage and the usual others.
 
I mustn’t forget to mention that this afternoon in CROFTERS I bumped into Mary-Jane Ferguson and her new boyfriend (Kat Hill’s brother) Reuben and we all got on pretty well.  He’s a really nice bloke.  And he has nothing to fear from me; I am incredibly happy to remain nothing more than Fergie’s friend.
 
I also finally bought that suede jacket I wanted – it’s skill!
 
‘Kashmir’ – Led Zeppelin

 
Anyway, at the Wenns, I saw an old NORCAT ‘friend’ I haven’t seen for over two years, Jo Jordan’s friend, the beautiful Polly Willis (she with whom I once did Political History; she that got me into Throwing Muses and This Mortal Coil).  I went over and chatted to her (she didn’t recognise me at first, remembering me as that miserable Goth I once was!).  She’s back in Lynn for Christmas, down from Leeds where she’s at polytechnic, you see, doing Fashion Design and Textiles.  She’s about as tall as me, with long dreadlocks, and she looked gorgeous in a brown ethnic/hippy dress/top thing, black leggings and boots.  We chatted for ages and got on really well.
 
Later, when her friend Sammy arrived, we went to LA’s for two discos which were great.  Johnny got off with a girl called Hanna (it’s so easy for him now that Missy’s in Yarmouth for Christmas).
