Went down to the shopping centre again today!!!! Matt & I bought some “Silly String” and “party poppers” for the New year’s eve” party on Wednesday!!! I also went into “WH Smiths” and no I didn’t buy a “Mayfair” I bought a brand new diary for 1987!!! I also bought a couple of fiction books!! These were “Wolfcurse” and “The 13th Pan Book of Horror Stories!!!” When I got home Andrew Wisheart came round and we went on the computer!!!
Hang on minute! I already bought some Silly String & Party Poppers last Monday. I can’t have used them all up already, I would have surely mentioned it. How many cans of Silly String & boxes of Party Poppers does a chap need to see in the New Year? More than 1 apparently.
If you’re wondering what the significance of me not buying a copy of Mayfair is all about, well where have you been? You can start by going back almost a year ago to 2nd January and if you’re hooked just click on the Mayfair Magazine tag for all related shenanigans.

The stuff I did write is really too horrendous to be released into the public domain so 1986 is all you’re gonna get!
I don’t remember much about “Wolfcurse” but “The 13th Pan Book of Horror Stories” was marvellous. I also had the 12th book in the series and some of the stories are truly horrific. I can’t recommend them highly enough for the purpose of disturbing young minds. Mwa-ha-ha-ha…
