Saturday 23rd July
8:13am Alarm woke me up again at 6:45am for the run. No chance. I saw Emily at breakfast and she made it up. She worked out I wasn’t coming and so went by herself. I feel bad.
11:58am In photography three kids were shooting what were pretty much semi porn shots. They had handcuffs on, shirts off and top hats perched. We were helping to direct them. Really not sure about what Bud and Earl would say about this one if they’d walked in, although the kids knew more than us anyway.
Cara’s managed to skank loads of stuff off her kids from last session – they might only be six, but some of them were pretty much the same size as her.
Cara: “I’ve never been this well dressed in moy loife.”
She told me earlier about the day her parents found out her twin brother was gay. They were 15 and her mum and dad were out, so obviously they had a house party. Someone put the Miss United States of America song from Miss Congeniality on. Her brother strutted down the stairs of their semi-detached house in the ‘nice’ Catholic area of Dublin wearing Cara’s clothes and make-up, singing and hamming it up wearing a feather boa round his neck. He’d just got to the bottom step facing the front door when the key in the lock went and his mum and dad walked in. The song finished and everyone just looked at each other. His friends sneaked out in the silence and that was that, outed. This story will make me laugh forever.
Cara was so horrible to her parents when she was growing up. She told me about this one time when her parents were away and she was just sat in the lounge bored. She looked around and decided she hated all the ornaments her mum had, so she got a bin bag and walked along with her hands in a scoop and shoveled them all in. Then she put the bag in the dump. My mum would go fucking mental if I did that.
After nights out with her mates she always invited them and half the club back to hers for after-parties. Her mum and dad would be upstairs trying to sleep while she and her new friends ate and drank the house dry downstairs. One night they set the burglar alarm off just for a laugh to wake up the street. Another time they decided to take her mum’s car for a joyride round town – think that happened quite often actually. When her and her brother were at school, they were in the same class, but they had to be split up because they were such a nightmare for the teachers. I feel sorry for her parents; sound like her and her brother are nuts.
2:08pm Zoe, Rebecca, our campers and me were sat happily minding our own business at lunch today scoffing down some perogis, when this boy came over and was ‘sick’ all over the table. It took me a few seconds to realise it was just soup, but it was absolutely disgusting. The girls were not happy, they all sat back with open mouths and faces scrunched in repulsion. Then I saw the camera, they were making some Jackass-style film in their video class. Earl wasn’t impressed either; pretty sure the video department will be getting a talking to later.
