Beady eyes and pirate-style features – 10th April 2001

Tuesday 10th Jake was going back and forth a bit today. He came to my house at about 11am but had to go to the dentist at about 2pm and so left and then came back again about an hour later! Pointless really but never mind!

He said that he wanted to me to sleep in the spare bed with him tonight when we get back from town. If it wasn’t for my family being in nearby rooms then there’s have been no stopping me!

He had a read of his emails today while I was there. One was from Skiing Rob which included the sentence, “Give Tess a good boning from me” (nice!) and another was from Skiing Abbi asking if he’d had a big snog from me and if I’d washed my hands after going to the pathology lab! (That was a Biology trip that we didn’t end up going on.)

Connor gave us a lift into town tonight cos it was raining and we’d have had to wait for a bus otherwise. Sarah and Karen were already in Edison’s when we got there and (very obviously!) pointed out to me that that stupid twat Furry Adam Reynolds was there too! He freaks me out sooo much with his staring, beady eyes and pirate-style features! Creep! Yuk!!

Suzie, Cat and Lizzie arrived soon after us and Sarah announced to us that she’s now discovered the female orgasm is not a myth! We all cheered and clapped so I had to explain to Jake what was going on. I thought he’d just nod and be discreet about it but, oh no, he turned round and laughed hysterically, pointing straight at her. I apologised to Sarah for telling him and kicked him in the shins. She was pissed though and had heard that Maz might be in town too so she didn’t care! Then I spotted Maz coming down the steps. I pointed him out to Jake and we both rushed to tell Sarah. She went all dramatic, looking like she was going to cry (but didn’t).

Out in Warrington

[Cat, Jake & I out in town.]

I was talking to Jake afterwards and he said that Sarah would make a good girlfriend cos you wouldn’t have to worry about satisfying her cos she didn’t think it was possible! I told Sarah to cheer her up and it seemed to work! It’s a bit late now though!!

Jake went to the bar at one point so I was just sat talking to my mates when Robert Osborne came and said hi. He used to be in my form but went to a different college and I have to say he’s very, very fit now!

A few seconds after he’d gone, I got tapped on the shoulder by some strange lad who waffled on at me, trying to get me to agree to go with [snog] with the lad stood next to him. Luckily Jake came back at that point!

We all trooped to Smith’s next and I ended up sat down with Jake all the time we were there cos he doesn’t do dancing. I’m glad I didn’t have to go and dance with my mates though cos even on my way to the toilet I got felt up by creepy blokes! Yuk yuk!!

Maz came over to me and Jake at one point to say hi. He asked how Sarah was and stuff before going to find her. Unfortunately he did and they got snogging again. That’ll bugger her mind up even more now. He asked her to go home with him but she didn’t cos Karen dragged her away.

Karen had been dancing on her own, Suzie and Lizzie had found lads, and Sarah was with Maz which left Cat on her own. Cat was (quite fairly!) pissed off cos she wanted to leave but couldn’t find Suzie who had the ticket for her coat. Without it the people in the cloakroom wouldn’t give it back so we spent ages searching for her. Eventually we spotted them outside with Cat’s coat so we managed to get a taxi home eventually.

When I got home, Jake got into my bed and stayed there for a while and cuddled for a bit and stuff. I was worried my family might wake up or something and come and see if I was home. I’m going to have to do more stuff sooner or later though! He went and slept in the spare room in the end.

Bye!

A 17 year old fuckwit like Hugo – 7th April 2001

Saturday 7th Jake came round at about 2pm today. We didn’t really do much, we just lay about on my bed pretty much all day. We were looking at holiday brochures and stuff and he said we’ve got to go to loads of nice places together. He was constantly telling me he loves me again 🙂 (I don’t mind!) and he couldn’t stop touching me and kissing me which was really nice.

Tess & Jake reunited

[Reunion selfie in my room.]

His mate, Hugo, rang at one point. He really is a pain in the arse! He never shuts up and drones on about really boring things like the plug sockets in his room! He slagged me off really badly before Jake went away so I’ve taken quite a dislike to the sad twat! Hugo’s obviously madly obsessed with Jake cos he just won’t leave him alone and we reckon it’s a jealousy thing that made him not like me cos they used to see quite a lot of each other before I came along, I think.

Anyway, I don’t know whether he’s had a bang on the head or what but Hugo suggested to Jake that he and I go out for dinner with him and his girlfriend, Katie. She must be a desperate cow cos she’s in her 20s and is going out with a 17 year old fuckwit like Hugo. He met her on a cruise last summer and they’re both loaded but both a bit thick, I think. He had to go to some special boarding school and she’s a beauty therapist or something.

When Jake told me what Hugo suggested, my first reaction was to yell, “Yeh right!!” and laugh hysterically but then when I thought about it, I realised that dinner with Hugo and his girlfriend would be the perfect opportunity to give Hugo his present. Ha ha!! (Evil laughter!) The present is a book entitled, “How Did I Begin?” and it all starts with a “special cuddle” between a mummy and daddy… blah blah… etc.! I’m sure you get the picture! Sarah and bought Hugo that cos he once asked Jake, “Where d’you put it, Jake?” when they were talking about “stuff” one night! Jake’s refused to even go to dinner, never mind let me present Hugo with his book!

Jake told me that in Canada, he and his mates were talking about people sleeping with each other and he jokingly used the term “special cuddle”. All the others found it really funny and apparently it got used quite a lot afterwards!

He gave me my present today. It’s a necklace thing with a few beads on it. He says you can only get them in Banff. It’s quite nice actually.

I did 3 to him and he kept undoing my bra and kissing me everywhere. He says I’ve got a really nice back! He brushed my hair too which nearly sent me to sleep! He kept saying I was cute and calling me ‘Miss Tessa Jane Simpson’! I don’t know why but it makes me smile cos it’s sweet!

He wants me to get my tummy button pierced. He said he really likes it cos it looks nice and even said he’ll pay for me to do it. I do want to, I have done for a while, but I don’t like pain or infection so I’m not too sure if I actually will!

Every time the phone rang today I expected it to be Jake for a split second, even when I was with him! It was weird!

Bye!

Fit chick unbelievable knockers – 30th March 2001

Friday 30th
6 days to go!!! 🙂 🙂

Yey! This should be my last Friday without Jake! 🙂 I can’t stop thinking about him coming home and I’m getting really excited now!

Not much happened in college today but tonight was quite good. Sarah got the car off her mum so she and I went to the Trafford Centre before joining everyone else in The Mossland. I bought a Mambo pencil case from the Free Spirit shop and got served by one of the most gorgeous blokes I have ever seen! He had a look of Jake about him actually which could well be why I thought he was so fit!

I also bought a pinky coloured lacy top from Bay and a white French Connection top saying “funky chick undoubtedly kicks-ass”.

30-03-01 fcuk

It took some doing but I manager to persuade Sarah into getting one that said “fit chick unbelievable knockers”. She spotted it but wasn’t sure whether to actually get it or not cos she was worried about what people might say!

Top

There weren’t many people in the pub and I wasn’t there for long so not a lot happened. Floyd and Nell snogged again, Paul Nutt was doing the pub quiz, Emma sent Jake’s brother a message saying she was madly in love with him and I got questioned by Declan, Isaac, Sam and Floyd as to whether I’d slept with Jake or not after I told them he likes Ronan Keating! I didn’t answer them!

Bye!

It’s all a myth about orgasms – 25th March 2001

Sunday 25th
1 week + 4 days to go!

Sarah, Lizzie, Karen and I all stayed over at Cat’s house last night cos her parents were out. It was a VERY interesting night!

First of all, we signed Mr L up to Manline on the internet so with any luck he’ll be getting lot of emails from gay blokes wanting him… bad! Ha ha ha!!!

Then we settled down in the living room and started playing drinking games such as Fuzzy Ducks where everyone in turn says “fuzzy duck” and at any time someone can say “Does he?” and you have to go round the opposite was saying “ducky fuzz”. As you can imagine, things like “duzzy fuck” and “fucky duzz” got said, in which case you had to drink.

I then walked Suzie home before going back to Cat’s to play Truth or Dare. It started off a bit crap but once we got into it, people were revealing allsorts!

Here’s what I found out about my friends:

LIZZIE

  • Has given Gethin number 4 on more than one occasion, the first time being in London while a few of us were in the room. He pushed her head in a southerly direction and she did it. She said it didn’t really taste of much but it made her gag cos it was sticky and she had to swallow seeing as she was in bed and had nowhere to spit. I’d heard her moving about in London but she told me that she just couldn’t sleep! Liar!
  • After London, she gave Gethin 4 more at various people’s houses.
  • Gethin returned the favour at Ewan Swann’s house and Stuart Hobbs saw it happen! Well, he could only see Lizzie’s head and a lot of movement under the sheets. He assumed right as to what was going on. Lizzie said Gethin did have an effect on her, the way she had on him!
  • Wanked off Big Paul in his car at the park. Nothing “happened” cos he kept saying it was so good that he didn’t want it to end! She had to stop though cos her mum phoned and demanded she went home. Lizzie said she was glad cos Paul started saying stuff like, “I want to be inside you!” Hah!
  • Got number 3-ed by Declan even though he confessed he’d never done it before.
  • Declan also number 4-ed her once.
  • Intends to lose her virginity before she’s 18.

KAREN

  • Went on a date with this lad called Russell and ended up in the woods with him. He got her to wank him off but when he said, “Just think what your mouth could do down there!” she drew the line.
  • Had sex with Big Paul!!! Shock horror!!! We didn’t know!! There were rumours but she denied them until tonight. It happened down some alleyway. She said she was really pissed and couldn’t say no. She said he ended up with grazed knees cos he lay on his back and she had to do all the work! They didn’t use any protection (stupid!) so she told him she didn’t want to get pregnant so nothing happened in her. We informed her that it could still happen and she said she knew and had been weighing herself all the time, just in case she’s in the situation of Sonia out of Eastenders!
  • Wanked off some stranger on a platform in the middle of Mr Smith’s!

SARAH

  • Wanked off Gethin in her bed after he forced her hand downwards (but we knew that).
  • Says the Bluebell story’s not true! Maz number 4-ed her in Derby but with very little success cos “he was just sort of kissing”.
  • Didn’t like it or when he kissed her mouth afterwards! Yuk!
  • Never had an orgasm → thinks it’s a myth for women to have them!

CAT

Karen then asked the question, “Do you masturbate?” to us all. There was silence for a few seconds before Cat started the ball rolling and admitted she did. The rest of us followed her lead except Sarah who had a look of complete shock over her face! She said she’d never even considered it cos she thought it’s all a myth about orgasms and stuff! Poor innocent Sarah! Cat offered to loan her Mr L to prove that not all men are hopeless like, obviously, the lads she’s had are! I sort of explained that I had Jake normally but Diane started going on about how it’s stress relief and stuff!

25-03-01 Cat educating Sarah

[Cat educating Sarah, perhaps?!]

I have to say, it was quite a lot better a night than I thought it was going to be! ‘Interesting’ is probably the best word to use! I told all too about things I’ve done with Jake but I didn’t go into quite as much detail as some people did!

It makes me wonder though what Jake’s told people. I’m sure he must have at least talked to his roommate about stuff like that. I might ask him at some point. I wouldn’t be annoyed cos I can’t complain, I’m just interested.

Lizzie’s surprisingly trustworthy! She’s known for ages about Karen and Big Paul but didn’t say anything. I suppose maybe it’s smaller secrets like who’s snogged who that she tells.

When I got home this morning I just lay about for a bit cos I was pretty tired. Jake phoned me at about 7pm. He said he’s shadowing tomorrow morning though so he’ll ring me at about 8:30pm in the evening. He said he won’t be doing much other than his laundry and playing computer games today cos it’s his day off.

We started trying to decide where we can meet each other for the 1st time when he gets back but we can’t think of anywhere. We don’t want to meet at either of our houses cos our families would be there, we don’t want to meet in a pub cos there’s be too many other people and we’d have no chance of being alone, and he doesn’t want to meet outside e.g. between my house and The Dog cos it’d be “weird”! Basically he wants a car but isn’t going to get one just yet so it’s not looking likely we’ll be alone for long.

He said he can’t wait to see me and wants me to sleep in his bed while he is (i.e. when he’s getting over his jetlag). I don’t think I’d help him sleep somehow! He bro and did are both going away over Easter but unfortunately their holidays only overlap by 2 days. Oh well, we’ll have to make the most of them! 🙂 He repeated that he does want to see me, badly!

He wanted to know what I told the others at Cat’s last night so I just said I told them how far we’ve got but didn’t go into any details. He said he doesn’t discuss stuff like that with people which I’m quite pleased about actually!

Bye!

P.S. The phone got cut off twice tonight and Jake told me that he might not always be able to ring back if that happens cos he doesn’t always have the change needed to start off the call or something.

(Shortly after he was sick!) Lizzie snogged him – 23rd March 2001

Friday 23rd
1 week + 6 days to go!

I really thought tonight was going to be crap cos loads of people decided in college that they weren’t coming out. Sarah rang me at the last minute to say she wasn’t coming out either so it ended up being just me, Karen and Lizzie out of our year.

I didn’t speak to Jake tonight cos I was going out quite early and he couldn’t phone until about 7:30pm again.

The night, however, turned out to be quite good/interesting! Drew met up with this girl called Heather but acted like he’d never seen a girl in his life so the rest of us gave him a bit of encouragement! He eventually got it together with her in The Coach and Horses, I think. It took him long enough anyway!

Gaz (a.k.a. Barney) hung round with me, Lizzie and Karen for most of the night cos all his mates had paired off with people a bit. For some reason, Robbie got it into his head that Barney was after me and said to him, “You’d better not try it on with my brother’s girlfriend!” Then later, “I’m watching you, Ug!” to Barney. (He gets called stuff like Ug and Barney cos he has a kind of caveman look, I suppose!)

In the end, Robbie did not have to worry anymore cos (shortly after he was sick!) Lizzie snogged him!

I’m really not sure what to make of Robbie. He seems to be nice to me and I thought we got on alright but then Lizzie told me that he’d said something to her the other week about either him or his dad not liking me.

Why not?! I don’t understand what it is that I’ve done wrong!

Jake’s unfortunately right, I don’t want to be at his house while his family are in. Whether any of it’s true or not, I’m probably never going to find out so it does make me want to avoid his family for fear that I’ll do or say something more to fuel any dislike for me. I wish it wasn’t like that. 😦

Robbie was saying that his dad told him to ask me if I want to go to Heathrow Airport with him to pick Jake up. I said I was on a Biology school trip so I can’t. That’s not exactly true though. I am on a trip but it’s the day before he gets back. I’m sorry but I don’t really want to go on a long car journey with a bloke I hardly know who quite possibly doesn’t even like me. Still, it was nice of him to ask.

I do get the feeling sometimes that Jake’s dad’s on a bit of a guilt trip after Robbie told me his dad didn’t like me. It’s just that he phoned me up to apologise for Robbie (fair enough, I suppose), he came round to my house just to give me a book on Barcelona which would’ve been easier to give to Robbie to give to me in college, and now he’s offering to take me to London to pick Jake up.

I mean, he seems like a nice bloke and it’s probably just coincidence that he’s actually spoken to me more since Robbie opened his gob but it does make me wonder whether he’d be so nice to me if Robbie hadn’t said something. Jake keeps telling me that his dad wouldn’t say he didn’t like me but why would Robbie just come out with that? There’s no smoke without fire and all that! Oh well.

Robbie did actually make a complete prick of himself tonight. He was pretty pissed and started doing scally impressions on the park with his trousers tucked into his socks and his boxers pulled up over his shirt to his armpits! Then a while later, someone dared him to flash and he did, not realising Karen had her camera handy! Ha ha!! 🙂

Scally

I downed a pint of diesel – 16th March 2001

Friday 16th
2 weeks + 6 days to go!

It’s Red Nose Day today so a group of my mates went round collecting money for a ‘Shavathon’! If we raised over £100 for Comic Relief then Floyd would shave his legs, Isaac would shave his beardy thing off and Denny would shave his chest hair! We did manage to raise much more than that so they’ve promised they’ll do their shavings over the weekend!

I’ve got a bit worried again cos now the top part of my left foot seems to have lost some sensation too. It’s not completely numb and I don’t notice it all the time but it’s still enough to trigger my worrying.

We got our Geography module exam results back today. I’m really pleased cos I got a high B in the exam I took in January and an A in my coursework project! 🙂 Unfortunately, Sarah didn’t do so well so I felt a bit guilty smiling when I got my result. She got a B in her project but completely failed the exam. She said she knew she hadn’t done particularly well but didn’t think she’d done that badly.

She got all upset so Mrs C let her leave the lesson. I got to leave too so I could comfort her, I suppose. She was okay after a while cos, even if she fails all her summer exams, she’ll get an E which is at least a grade. If I fail all my other exams, I’ve got a D already which I could live with but hopefully that won’t be happening.

Jake phoned at about 4:30ish today. He said he’s really pleased for me about my Geography. He was saying how he’s not bought much while he’s been there except for a pair of shorts to play football in but he says he’ll get me a present for when he gets home.

He was telling me about how he was skiing with an instructor nicknames ‘Hollywood’ cos he’s been on TV and in Britney Spears videos and stuff. He said all the girls were really jealous and were asking questions all the time about him cos apparently he’s a bit of a babe!

We started talking about when we first see each other today and where we’re going to meet and stuff. Jake says he doesn’t want to meet in a public place really cos he’s probably going to cry when he sees me. That’s so sweet!

A big group of us did The Run [a pub crawl] again tonight but with a difference. Seeing as it’s Comic Relief, we took our Shavathon collection bucket with us and to attract a bit of attention, a few of us wore school uniform. Sarah was driving which I was pleased about cos if there were loads of pervy old men then we could drive away quickly and get changed!

Sarah ended up giving a select few of us lifts between pubs and, not surprisingly, they were all lads apart from me. At one point in The Mossland car park, there was me, Sarah, Robbie, Drew and Gaz S waiting for the others to arrive, just sitting in the car. I can’t remember how it came up but Robbie said he’d be up for going with [snogging] me or Sarah if I wasn’t going out with his brother or something! I think he was joking! He then started saying stuff about me being his future sister-in-law!

I was having a pretty good night until I got back out into The Mossland car park. There, I was just suddenly sick. It was horrible! Luckily, only Sarah was with me (I hate being sick anyway but it’s worse if loads of people see it!) so she dropped me off at home. I’d felt slightly queasy all night but not ill so I was a bit shocked at being sick actually. I tell you, I’m never going to be able to eat coronation chicken again! [I never did and I never will. Even the thought of it still makes me feel sick.]

I thought I might’ve been sick cos I downed a pint of diesel (not the stuff you put in trucks!) but then I did start feeling dizzy and hot and cold once I got home. I was sick again before and I’ve got a bit of stomach ache and back ache on my ribs, especially where that lump is on the right of my back but it could just be cos I was throwing up before. Yuk!

Bye!

I was so flustered and embarrassed – 15th March 2001

Thursday 15th
3 weeks to go!

I was a bit insulted today when I read the email Jake sent me today. It’s the way he kept saying how awful that photo was! I didn’t think it was that bad, you see, so I said Cat could scan it and send it to him if she really wanted to. It’s not the best picture ever but it’s not THAT bad. It’s just close up, that’s all!

Run - Tess, Suzie, Cat in field

I’ve seen worse photos of me than that one! Mind you, when I went into his Hotmail inbox and check out the email with the picture, it had turned out to be huge so I suppose that didn’t help!

I had a really crap Biology lesson today. I’d only done half the homework and what I had done was wrong because I’d been looking at the wrong page in the text book. We spent most of the lesson going through the homework so whenever Mr S asked me a question, I either didn’t know the answer or got it wrong.

He then told me that he wanted to see me after the lesson and everybody heard him so I was really embarrassed by that! I was already embarrassed by the fact I couldn’t answer anything and I could see everyone thinking I must be thick or something! Brainbox Cat then started trying to ‘help’ me by finding the right page and plonking it in front of me but that just showed me up even more! I just hate being the centre of attention in class!

At break, I stayed behind and blagged my way through a reason as to why I hadn’t done the homework properly. Mr S seemed to believe me but by then I was so flustered and embarrassed and annoyed at myself that I burst into tears as soon as I got out of the room. I managed to compose myself again pretty quickly though, ready to face the questions in the common room about what’d happened and stuff!

Jake rang at about 4:40pm today. We talked about uni mostly cos I sent off my final decision today. I put down the Environmental Science with Geography sandwich course at Huddersfield Uni as my firm choice and declined the rest. I asked Jake whether he’s going to put down mixed or single sex accommodation when he has to choose. He says he’s going to ask Matt Carrera (his mate that’s already there) what he thinks is best but is thinking he’s probably going to put all lads. I’m not sure. Lads could be a bit of a pain to live with (but so can girls!) but all girls could get bitchy! I’ll decide nearer the time.

We’re halfway down the hill now! Only a quarter of the time left to go until he comes home!
