Default Facebook statuses when you were a teenager ?

Right, cast your mind back to when you were a teenager, if this Facebook thingy had been around then, what status updates would you have been putting up? Teenage angst, unrequited love, school woes?

My week so far :

Sunday : Recording the Top 40 countdown, hovering my fingers over pause to stop Dave Lee Tarvis' voice ruining it!

Monday : Bollox. My old man won't let me do my hair like Tom Bailey. Don't know why ? Thompson Twins rock !

Tuesday: Just seen this portable tape player called a Sony Walkman... its so small !!

Wednesday : Purple Farah waffle trousers & a white Pringle jumper ....lookin' cool !

Thursday : Tuckers Luck tonight....!

Sunday - is trying yet again to record Orinoco Flow on my tape player. Gar! DJ ruined the end by talking. My dad's just come in and said it's a rubbish song anyway. What does he know?!

Actually, I wasn't yet a teen then.

Default Re: Facebook statuses when you were a teenager ?

Monday: Far too much homework, but how do I meet David Sylvian?

Tuesday: Oops, may have singed hair on crimping irons!

Wednesday: I can't be friends with you if you don't think that Bela Lugosi's Dead is the greatest song in the world. Prefer David Sylvian to Pete Murphy though.

Thursday: Tops of the Pops on, but no Japan. The producers know nothing!

Friday: Wish I could go out tonight, but there's nothing to do in this vlillage so I'm babysitting instead. At least I can buy some more black clothes tomorrow.

Default Re: Facebook statuses when you were a teenager ?

Pretty much every day:

I'm going to be a huge star. Any other girl play her fender bass as brilliantly as Tony Visconti? Nope, didn't think so. Look at my lopsided hair! My moody gaze! God I'm so cool.

Insufferable, really.

If only someone would tell the kevs about white socks and black slip ons, then we could all be friends.

Obsessively so! I still like most of their stuff and David Sylvian's solo work, although I no longer want to marry him.

I was quite upset when Mick Karn died not that long ago.

I think you know my Adam & the Ants stories/connections.
