I went into Easterby with Dad and got the Kerouac and Beat stuff from Ludd’s Mill photocopied, which cost me 65p at 5p per sheet. I bought a single from HMV by Mouth (“Ooh, Aah, Yeah!”/ “Ooh?”): I don’t buy 45s as a rule ‘cos I think they’re a waste of money. It's OK, a bit disappointing. I also made a half hearted attempt to look round for shoes.
At school in the afternoon I did a bit of work, enduring Deborah’s reserved coolness. Laura said Grant is “styleless” and asked how old he is. When I told her 18 she was amazed, saying he seemed much younger.
At least he’s interesting.
