She is/was a pornstar! – 10th August 1999

Tuesday 10th Kate’s invited the 3 of us to a sleepover tonight so I’ll fill you in on today now and tonight another day.

This morning I was looking through the Daily Express newspaper and I came to the special eclipse horoscopes. It’s only the 2nd part of them though. I think I missed one yesterday. It’s the 1st section of this one that I thought was weird because it could link to Duncan.

Anyway, this afternoon we went to the town and met up with Kate, Amelia and Jennifer. Just after we’d met, someone suggested we went in the café and Amelia started looking up at me and grinning. Then she told me it was because Duncan really liked me. I couldn’t believe it and I still can’t.

As the afternoon went on, I found out that they’d found out because he’d been saying that he fancied one of us so Amelia was going through our names. He said no to Abby and Rhian but went quiet and nodded when she said me.

Apparently he’s supposed to be going on some camp on Friday but he might not because he doesn’t really want to. Kate said it’s probably because we’re here.

Amelia also told me that he mentioned he saw us at the trampolines and he sounded dead pleased when he got told we were staying over tonight. It’s going to be really awkward later on because he knows I know he likes me and I know he knows that I like him!

Amelia kept running into the café and winding him up and she said he went really red and embarrassed. I’m not surprised!

Also today, we saw Ashley Ewart and his mates and they kept whistling and said “hi” too. Duncan then Kate and Amelia’s dad told us what Ashley’s mum does (or did) for a living. Apparently she is/was a pornstar! I bet his mates like that!!

BYE!

“Will any of yous get off with Gary?” – 8th & 9th August 1999

Sunday 8th I’ve had to have a change of colour. I can’t find the blue pen under the heaps of stuff in Rhian’s room!

We went to Thurso’s Viking Bowl place this afternoon with Amelia, Kate, some girl called Jennifer and Duncan. He was being quiet today (probably because he wasn’t drinking alcohol!) and was usually stood with the adults who came or over at the juke box putting on dance music.

He did follow me over to it a couple of times and was being a proper gentleman by letting me have the green bowling ball when I needed it too and by offering to buy me a drink from the venders. I didn’t let him buy me one but Tom got one off him which he didn’t want so I ended up drinking it instead. I kept the ringpull! →

I got a few glances off him but he didn’t really do anything that suggested he like me. I don’t think he does.

I remembered this morning that when Duncan was pretending to be asleep he was actually watching me and when he was holding the torch in the talent show, he kept looking at me from the dark corner he was in. I could’ve been mistaken I suppose. I don’t think anything would develop anyway because he seems a bit shy.

Afterwards, the others (not me, Auntie S, Tom or Minnie) went to Safeway. Duncan got a lift to the bowling with us but went back with someone else. I know he knows my name at least because someone rang his mobile and he said who he was in the car with on the way there.

Okay, I’ve found the blue pen in my bag which I’d left in the car.

This evening, Rhian, Abby and I met up with Kate down the town and we went for one of our nightly wanders in search of Greg Thompson. We found him with his friends, stood on their usual corner. Abby’s decided she fancies one of his mates called Ashley Ewart but I can’t see the attraction myself. They waved at us when they got in the car.

We also saw Ben McFarlane who was in a car with 2 other lads (I think it was a red Peugeot) and he waved too. That was about it really.

BYE!

Monday 9th Rhian, Abby and I took Tom swimming this afternoon. Rhian didn’t like that idea but it was tough because I felt mean seeing as we’ve been going down the town with Rhian nearly every night.

Ben wasn’t working at the pool, in fact I‘ve not seem him at all today. We walked past his house tonight and Rhian told me the window of his room was the one at the left of the front door but we didn’t see him.

Down the town tonight we did see Greg and Ashley, and Ashley was riding round on a little BMX-type bike and he was saying, “Will any of yous get off with Gary?” – Gary being this little lad who only looked about 11! None of us did!

Oh yeah, I did see Duncan twice today. Once was in his café when I walked past and the other time was when Abby and I took Tom and Minnie to the trampolines and he shouted, “Hi Tom!” and looked at me before he carried on walking.

I really like him. Nowt’ll happen though. It hardly ever does with me.

BYE!

Some grotesque teenage beast of a boy – 6th & 7th August 1999

Friday 6th Rhian, Abby and I went swimming today. The main reason behind it was not to swim but to see Ben McFarlane. We did but only briefly. He wasn’t actually doing his pool attending like we’d hoped but he was in the shop part.

I saw Rhian’s friend Laura Morgan’s brother, Duncan, today. The rest of his family are in Florida but he’s stayed here with his auntie who’s having a barbeque tomorrow to which we’re invited. Duncan was working in his parent’s café today and Rhian was ordered by Auntie S to introduce us to him, seeing as he’ll be at this barbeque as well, but she didn’t.

Instead, Rhian got food and I got a good look at Duncan. I’ve never seen him before but Abby saw him at Christmas and Rhian sees him all the time and they both told me he was minging. So, I went in there expecting him to be some grotesque teenage beast of a boy but in fact I was pleasantly surprised! I mean, he’s not drop-dead-gorgeous but he’s not half as bad as I expected. Abby did actually say he’d improved though.

We went for another walk around the town tonight and saw Greg Thompson again. This time he was stood on a street corner with 3 other lads. I gave Hayley a ring from the phonebox (I’m not missing anything apparently) and these 3 lads (different ones) started whistling and waving. Then they came over and went in the phonebox next to us but they were only pretending to use the phone. Unfortunately, none of them were nice looking!

We were also getting attention off some builders working on Woolies, one of which was quite young and quite nice but they were up high on scaffolding. At one point the nice one came down and we thought he was following us but he turned down some other street.

I got the full registration plate of Ben’s car. It’s OLL 3415. [Jesus.]

Greg’s car, well, the one he was in last night is K24 JPT. Rhian left a message on the back of a sweet wrapper in the windscreen wipers saying:

I ♥ G. Thompson 4 ever. ♥ me! xxx

She wrote another tonight saying:

Greg Thompson is a BABE! ♥ from me! xxx
P.S. If you wanna know who “me” is, keep watchin’ those wipers!

She says she’ll stick it on the car tomorrow.

She is now in the process of writing a wind-up letter to James Douglas (for me to give to him when I get home) which implies she rather fancies him. In fact she does because she’s seen his photo but this letter isn’t exactly a serious one.

BYE!

Saturday 7th Rhian, Abby and I went to Thurso this afternoon but it was more boring that Wick so we came back again.

Greg Thompson was stood on his usual corner so we had to walk past him about 5 times for Rhian’s benefit. I made sure we walked past the café too so I could catch a quick glimpse of Duncan. I saw him but I don’t think he saw me.

I went to the barbeque tonight. It was quite good because there were quite a few young people there. As well as me, Rhian, Abby, Tom and Minnie, there was Duncan and his soon-to-be step-cousins Kate and Amelia.

Amelia’s only 11 but Kate’s 14 I think so we four older girls went for a walk in the dark and saw the K24 JPT car drive past loads with Greg in the back yelling things like, “You’re looking cracking tonight, girls!” Kate’s got a boyfriend back in Brighton but she says she’ll come with us to stalk Greg and co. another day.

As for Duncan, well, to start with he was being a bit quiet but as the evening went on he made me hold Tom still while he squirted him with a water pistol then threatened to get me with it. Later on, he began to sit with us in the kitchen and stuff and spoke a bit more and laughed at us when we were doing Steps ‘5, 6, 7, 8’ in the talent show until he fell asleep. [The bottle of Whyte & Mackay he had in his possession might have had something to do with all of that.]

Nothing really interesting happened but we caught each other’s eye the odd time and he usually came in the room I was in. I don’t really think he’s interested in me. Same old story!

He fell asleep again later so I was given his fleece by someone when we went outside again. It smelled nice.

Anyway, I’m going to bed.

BYE!
