Got a necklace & card off Corinna in Germany
It snowed really heavily
He has been thrown out of the house as he told his mum to get stuffed (oops!!!)
Went to Tiffany's with Fi, 'J', Stan, Mike etc (whilst poor Sam is homeless I am partying hee hee)
Fi went with Tony R (awww!!)
I have mentioned 'Jackie' Magazine a few times during this journey through the 70s. It was certainly the teenage girls bible, it covered fashion, music, true life stories, horoscopes and of course 'Dear Cathy & Claire'.
Dear Cathy & Claire were the problem page girls or 'agony Aunts' who would answer an array of teenage angsts.
What a brilliant job that must have been making up the answers to them.
Here are some examples with70steen's replies
Dear 70s.~ My boyfriend gave me one driving lesson recently but I drove the car into a ditch. Since then he's refused to teach me again. He says I only confirmed his belief that women make useless drivers.
70s reply~ I read into this that you are blond like me. I assume you were naturally applying your lip gloss at the time of the incident and using the rear view mirror to check your hair? My advice is dump him!!
Dear 70steen~ I'm really miserable. I've been going out with my boyfriend for three months - and he is the trouble.
You see it is his hair. My hair is shoulder length but his is a good 5 inches longer than mine - honestly!
I love him a lot, I'm sure I do. He's a fantastic boy and he's good to me in almost everything. But if we go to the pictures, usherettes laugh and snigger at him. If we go for a walk, there are always kids hanging around and laughing at us.
My parents get upset with me and they tell me that all our neighbours talk about me. My boy tells me he loves me, but if he did surely he would get his hair cut when it is making life so miserable.
Should I finish with him?
70s reply~ I think I smell an air of jealousy as you can't grow your hair as long as his!!! My advice is that he finishes with you (are you sure they are not laughing at you not him btw???)
Dear 70s~ My boyfriend is absolutely obsessed with films & T.V. programmes. After he has been watching a western,he develops a Texas drawl and a John Wayne swagger and after a James Bond film, he acts very cool and man-of-the-worldish.
It's most embarrassing when we're with a crowd as all of our friends laugh at him. How can I cure him?
70s reply ~ Dump him and pass me his number, he sounds a complete hoot (he may need a bit of hair cut and a groom though) and you sound sooooo boring & miserable !!
Dear 70steen~ I am really fed up because everyone -including my parents- are against me.
I'm 13 and I want to get engaged to Steve, who's 15. We've been going together for 3 weeks and are really in love.
I am attractive, although Steve is nothing to look at, which makes me think that I love him for himself. My parents are being completely selfish about the matter.
70s reply~ you are 13, big headed and he is ugly! My advice is that your parents ground you until you are 21.
Dear Cathy & Claire
I would like a change of career. I was thinking of becoming an 'Agony Aunt' What do you think???
