Unfortunately/thankfully the entries dry up here as I was obviously far too busy beating allcomers at chess, counting down the days to Christmas and starting my own CAPS LOCK FARM to bother keeping up with the diary.

And that was that for me, diary wise, until I kept this Diaryland journal for a while four or five years ago. (Although that one was more just a case of me arsing about and acting the goat than anything else. I know, I know, hard to imagine now!)

Don't worry Kips - I'm here mate;

Hanging on to every ... fuck me has he finished yet?

Only kidding - I still consider this hilarious. (Perhaps my admiration is unique? Come on people - comment. You'd pay good money for this on Britain's got Talent!)

Lots of 'Comic' days there - please re-define your perspective in life, my good man.

Nice use of the word 'roamed'.

Why could you not jump in the pool?

3 puffs in 1 afternoon!

Friday (aproximately) is an odd day in which to return to one's school.

Can swim with andrew at runnymede but unwilling to jump in on holiday. Explain.

Clearly prostituting oneself with both andrew and adrian.

Was the chicken 'beautiful' due to the late night with Clint? This may have affected your culinary clarity.

There was an empty week following the worrying incident over the handlebars. Was this perhaps due to a coma?

Southend Utd seem to have stormed the early season. Including a tricky away fixture at Edgar St.
Did they maintain it? (Everton promised but couldn't deliver).

Playing left half should not be seen as a relegation - it is, or was, a fulcrum of a specialist position. (Or summat).

Do you still possess the football quiz? Try me.

Chosen to be a Prefect eh.

Is chess for puffs?


I may be the only person on this particular planet who gives a flying fuck. But, hopefully, this is enough?

No Dickie, there are at least two of us. For truly, I have found this to be magnificent.

How cruel that diaristically you were cut short so prematurely; like Keats, almost!

Friday 13th June - nothing happened for a lot of days - *sigh* try being 44 mate...x

Kippers said...

LOL! Yes, it's more than enough. Bless you Dickie! Suddenly all that dreary transcribing seems worthwhile.

No idea why I couldn't jump in the pool. Perhaps it was shark-infested?

I suspect I mentioned the Clint Eastwood film purely and simply to show off about the fact that I'd been allowed to stay up inordinately late that night. Parents must've left us with an easy-going babysitter or something.

I don't like talking about the week-long coma now. Mainly because I can't remember anything.

Southend stormed to the fourth division title that year, if memory serves!

Sadly the football quiz has long since been consigned to the dustbin of history. A tragic loss, I know!

Kippers said...

*blush* Cheers, Davy. Far too kind, as ever!

Wednesday 17th September

got chosen to be a PREFECT
Swot!

It's reassuring how little has changed over the years. Only now comic day is Friday, right?

Kippers said...

Right!

'Caught a nice tan' was my favourite bit, that and 'roamed the games room'. I was starting to expect you were going to be hired by a mysterious blonde to find her runaway no good Irish husband.
