Clara and I really enjoyed seeing SWARF last night - though I felt a bit out of place and old in the Student Union, which was heaving with teenage girls and young shavers... A high percentage of blue denim mini-skirts teamed attractively with brown furry boots - eww!! ...and lads/lasses with 'KRAZY HAIR'(tm) all spiked up and sprayed dorky colours because their mums won't let them bleach it...

"Look, I've spiked my hair - I may be GINGA but I'm still KEWL!!"

Hmm. And I seriously 'dug/digged' those breakdancers too - the ones who were spinning around on the floor like spasticated flipped-over beetles in front of me when SWARF were on their last two songs lol!!

Anyway, I had to ease up a little on the 'I've sprayed my hair - I am now KEWL' comedy banter when my mates showed up later - Adrian (who has always had a bit of the dork in him) got his hair sprayed green like a mouldy skunk all the way down the back... Chris, Sue and Rich were out as well looking 'relatively' normal - if you regard black pvc and shaved sides/grey cyberdog stuff and braids as 'normal'...

But seriously, at least it wasn't hawaiian shirts and luas (as two people I saw were wearing) or a desperate attempt at looking 'punk' at 18 - half of the hair stuck up in a ridiculous black mohawk and the rest just left normal - not even stuck back or anything - with one of those stupid bags that say 'porn' on the side, green ripped tights and a yucky cotton spotty dress teamed attractively with camo print converse trainers...

Doesn't work, doesn't look punk. Just SCREAMS 'STUDEEENNNTTTTT!!!!!' is all...

Down with the kids, I am. Hehe.

Got home about 2am. All I wanted was a nice cup of tea and a piece of toast.

It's times like these that I seriously feel my age lol!!

Anyway, I'm off to tidy my room - mother wants it done...

*stomps off crankily*

I'd imagine it was in reference to the 'flappy bat'...

Bat Burger, anyone?

I don't get the mini skirt/furry boots combo either, and the uni freshers are teaming with it here.

I think it's hideous... At least 50% of the freshers were wearing them...

Those boots aren't even flattering, as they make your lower leg look the same width as your thigh lol!! Tree trunks all the way...

right, and so many of the skirts barely cover their bums. it's so tacky. aren't they cold??? do they think they'll pick up boys this way? they also gather in groups, making high pitched chatter that sounds like woodland animals.

I'll expect they are cold, but it's all a ruse to get fratboys coats off them lol!

Down here, the accent sounds more like a group of seals begging for fish...

It's Chris Wilsher and Mark McCann dj-ing... A good night all told.

DevilRiders are sort of rockabilly punk... But Ralphy does a mean version of 'Behind The Wheel' by D.Mode:)

I think the same can be said of all of us - I barely remember my A Levels lol... But that had a lot to do with the white substances that went up my nose at the time...

:/

At least I'm on the second/third time round now hehe (I think)...so I'm done with the 'wanker' thing...

You'll be moaning about 'the prices in here...', 'what they've done to the town centre is criminal!' and maybe 'call that a skirt???' next.

You're dead right though. A change is comin', the kids won't know what hit them. When oldies attack, or at least wear decent gear.

Your Growing-Old Checklist

Writing to the local paper.
Coffee mornings.
Jumble sales.
Having no clue whatsoever about the latest big thing (TV prog, pop star, etc)
Saying "you know, I can't understand a word these young people say".
Rushing home to watch Countdown.

Re: Your Growing-Old Checklist

Writing to the local paper = No, but I've been tempted on occasion...
Coffee Mornings = Yes
Jumble Sales = Yes
Having no clue... = Yes
Saying "you know, I can't understand a word..." = Yes
Rushing home to watch Countdown = Oh yes! Well, not rushing exactly, but it is on after I get home from work, so...

Shall I get me stick and pension book then??

That denim skirt/furry boots combo always makes me think of hookers from the 1970s. That particular look was in full swing in London before I left...
