[HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!]
Thursday 7th We realised today that on the set lists outside the gym it has everyone’s middle name. For ages, Emma has been telling me that it’s Ralph John Christopherson but actually it’s Ralph Andrew Christopherson. I never knew that. Some people have got some funny names that have got to be made up! I can’t think of any now but if I remember I’ll write them somewhere.
[It was handy to know peoples’ full names so we could get our Percentages as accurate as possible. If you have no idea what I’m on about, see below this diary entry for instructions so that you can go away and do Percentages for you and all your crushes.]
I dunno if I fancy Ralph or not. I sort of do because I don’t particularly want him myself (coz I prefer Ferny) but I don’t want anyone else to have him either. D’you know what I mean? I know I keep going on about it and this diary is probably going to seem really boring in the future and it’s of no historical use whatsoever really!
Anyhow, when I came out of the Geography exam this afternoon (I had English in the morning and I was surprised to find Ralph in there) Ralph and Emma were there with Ferny’s cricket gear. (Gotta remember that – cricket club on Thursdays, cricket club on Thursdays.) I dunno what they were doing with it though.
Ralph was biking it home across the moss and was trying to get me and Emma to wait for him. We did but got bored and started walking. She then started telling me about how she’d told Ralph I’ve started walking home and the subject of him saying he fancied me came up and he quickly changed the subject. I don’t know if he still likes me anymore and I don’t think Ferny does at all. Oh well.[Now for Percentages and FLAMES. Did anyone else spend hours doing these or similar at school?…]
I remember percentages being done, but it would never have occured to me again till now. You should make a list of all these things, or maybe I will.
If I’d have spent as much time revising and I did doing Percentages then I would’ve aced my exams.
I’m never sure what weird 90s bits were unique to my school/friends and what was more widespread. If you ever do make a list of these things then let me know!
It would be a great clickbait type thing I reckon. It is strange we had percentages here too.
