HIPPY? WHAT'S THAT!
T H U R S D A Y, 2 7 A P R I L
Anya didn't hear Antoine last night. I knew she wouldn't.
Got the 80A home because the little bus had just gone.
Did Caesar all evening but stopped to watch T.O.T.P. Sandie Shaw is No. 1 - honestly. It wasn't too bad though because they had 'Dedicated to the One I Love' (Mamas and Papas) and 'Hi Ho Silver Lining' - fabulous. Jeff Beck sings so gorgeously DRONY.
You're everywhere and no-where baby, that's where you're at,
Going down a bumpy hillside, in your hippy hat
Flying across the country, and getting fat,
Saying everything is groovy, when your tyres are flat...
Jeff Beck is a terrible snazz with a figure like Dutronc. Chump and me knew he reminded us of someone but we just couldn’t think who. Then we remembered – he was in the Yardbirds!!!
Princess Beatrix has had a baby – it’s a boy. Which I expect the whole of Holland must be pretty pleased about, after all the queens they’ve had. His name is Willem-Alexander.
I can get quite a good vision of Dutronc when I think of him outside the ski room on April 5th. It only lasts for a second: the sunburnt face, and the pale sunscreen lips (he’s got such cracked lips, I noticed them particularly at the Porsche race). I also remember looking at his black ski pants, so tight - heavens, his legs were so long and thin in them. Pretty fabulous.
