Pulled my donut scam today.

Thursday, 20 June 1996 Hey Sis, Have to start this one in a temporary file.  My computer’s being all jazzed up and had Windows 95 installed, but it doesn’t have Word on it yet.  So, what have I done?

I feel silly, but this is exciting to me – independence!

J’s Diary Entry Sunday 7 May, 1995 Spent the day washing clothes and reading.  Finished off that Chopper Read book.  Almost poignant at the end.  I told Leah she could stay another week – she was packing everything up after yesterday’s foul mood.  It’s good, I can use the money.

Wednesday, 15 March, 1995, 9:22am S, Mornin’.  It’s a good day.  Winter has poked its ruddy nose out of its burrow for the first time this year.  A lovely chilly day – grey, overcast, windy.  I might even venture out to augment my Winter Couture Collection.  I hate shopping per se though.  Shopping stresses me terribly.  I bought a CD yesterday, and it gave me … Continue reading FACT: Magnum ice creams are essential to daily life.

This dot mattress printer is very noisy!

Saturday, 13 Jul 1991 9:00pm after phone call Dear S It was great to talk to you, please apologise to Jack, because I was getting some echo and I was a bit confused, I didn’t really speak to him, just asked to speak to you.  He probably thinks I am really ignorant. I am pleased you haven’t resigned yet.  It is always easier to get … Continue reading This dot mattress printer is very noisy!
