Last Day of the 1980s


10.05pm

‘I’m Not Scared’ – Pet Shop Boys


It’s New Year’s Eve!

Tonite, Flash, Raquel and I have been to a pub in Castleford and now we’re safely returned to Ashton Street and to start watching the BBC 2 show ‘Eighties’.  Looks like it’s going to be good.

Later:

Farewell, 1980s.  You have been so much.  From all here at Ashton St

Flash: Happy New Year!!

Raquel: Hi, Raquel here!  I’m going to have dreadlocks.  Blonde ones!  I’m drunk – so I guess I love everyone!  Most of all: Pet Shop Boys, Flash, and Ritcherd.  Yipee xxx  I want to have sex with Mother Nature, with the World xxx Love, Raquel!  (Ritcherd, you’re really fabby!)

All my love, everyone, for the 1990s,
Ritcherd xxx
