The boy with the thorn in his side

Blubber, blubber, blub....You know that it's time to move on with your life when a Morrisey/ The Smiths song becomes your song--literally. What else can I say?

"And when you want to Live,
how do you start?
Where do you go?

Who do you need to know?"


Do you believe me?

Don't worry folks, I'll make with the funny. Contrast is my secret weapon.

"I Know It's Over" is my GO TO song.

The lows make the highs even higher, right?

vera said...

Good times for a change
See, the luck I’ve had
Can make a good man
Turn bad

So please please please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
This time

Haven’t had a dream in a long time
See, the life I’ve had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time

I don't know if this will cheer you up at all, but I have that other blog where I do Flash Fiction Friday, and I was going through the people who submitted stories this week. On one woman's website, in her links, guess who was there?

An Irresponsible Time Traveler, that's who. =) I thought it was kind of cool.

I can't wrap my head around Morissey and The Smiths, he just does not speak to me I guess.

Markis~this non-response speaks volumes. I'll pick "Vicar in a Tutu" for you.

Pants~Yes, that's a good one.

Goldennib~exactly! You will find that my manic pace in funny is a natural phenomenon. I have to come down sometime, or else I just force it.

Vera~you sure went the extra mile there, didn't you? Good one, very appropriate, too.

Wots~ I need to catch up on your great stories, as well. It's awsome to hear that there's another TOAITT reader out there. I guess that I'll have to write more of those. I had to quit because I was having to deal with the new volume of readers here. Plus, I'm trying to get my big one started.

Scott~ it's alright, man. To be honest with you, Paul Weller, of The Jam, speaks to me more than the Moz. Bob Dylan is their granddad, I suppose.

I am a confirmed victim of "Moz Syndrome".

a thorn in the side is better than a thorn in the eye. that's what i always say.

Crystal said...

vera! that is the song that played when duckie was sad about andy. sigh. good times.

Crystal said...

it has to be "the more you ignore me the closer i get". that is the song that taught me how to play the game.

and it works.

so everytime i want to pick up the phone and call some boy, my mind always plays this song.

everyone says they hate games, but we all play them. we do. don't lie.

The Grunt said...

Crystal, that was quite the value pack of comments you left there. So what kind of game are you into, Monopoly, Risk, or Life?

Outdoorsy Girl said...

Hmmm. I could relate to that song about right now. But that's just for now...The sun will come out tomorrow.

Won't it?

This should make you feel better...I think that my song is "Here I go Again" by Whitesnake. Yikes!

Hope this made your day better! :)

Vera said...

Crystal!
PIP is awesome. I love movies for the outcast and square-pegged of our society. I relate, yo.

Güggs said...

I totally get it, Grunt. I understand.

Chris said...

I think you need to move your bowels more. Try Fibercon.

Chief Scientist said...

I doubt that The Smiths is what anyone depressed should listen to ... it's like encouraging Stoners to listen to Floyd as a way to sober up.

I listen to that Roley Poley Fish Heads song when I want to cheer up.

And this pic of Victoria Silverstedt will make anyone happy. I promise.

The Grunt said...

O-girl~I can dig that song. Tawnee Katane, when she wasn't scary.

Vera~ I've never seen "Pretty In Pink" But, I have seen "Repo Man". Anything with Black Flag in the soundtrack is a great movie.

Guggs~ I'm glad you get me, man.

Chris~ Fibercon will help flush my problems away? You know, all I have to do is drink Minute Maid apple juice and whammo!

Cash~ True, Morrisey is a bit of an enabler. I choose either Bon Scott or Diamond Dave to get me going again. But, I do like the Roly Poly Fish Heads song.

Oh, and Cash, do you think she could use some mustard on that pretzel?

kate said...

Ohhh I like it... It appeals to the dark side I seem to be showing over the last 2 days!

If I had to pick a g2g song I would be afraid because I know it would play... and I am not ready to go.
