Yes you sure are. Never met anyone quite like you before.
He's gotten better and i can play it around him the few times a year we're in the car together..but he still looks at me like 'hmmmm' haha
didnt help when he asked what i wanted for christmas and i told him to get me a bottle of avignon cuz i ran out...he's like 'where'd you find this cologne?' and i'm like 'oh, i tried it cuz morrissey wears it!'
My family long ago stopped caring about anything that I do. My friends like top 40.
My friends snap up Kelly Clarkson CDs on the day of release. 'Nuff said.
My friends usually call him the original emo, which irritates me, but i found out yeaterday that my sister clearly does understand afterall, because for xmas she got me an andy warhol-stylee morrissey print canvas and a signed photo of him with a certificate of authenticity! Swoon! Another of my older sisters and her husband bought me a vinyl record of "i just want to see the boy happy" a while back when it came out.
I think they all think its phase that will pass, but support me in my addiction!
They are admittedly still concerned over my decision to go to the sunderland gig however
'Cause tonight is just like any other night
That's why you're on your own tonight
With your triumphs and your charms
While they're in each other's arms..."
well, let me see:
Parents - have no idea who the man is, but my mother finds his quotes very funny
Brother & sister in law - Like him (more the smiths than Solo, and even have a few smiths records)
Sister & brother in Law - have no clue
Nephews - have no clue, but I will start working on them soon
Friends - most like him (even attended gigs) - some are BIG fans and
even those who do not like him, respect his work and my admiration for him.
So it's not too bad, I guess
My dad likes Morrissey and i use to drag him to concerts but he doesn't want to go anymore- so i have to go alone My mum thinks he's funny but they both don't like how much i like him and they complain about how my obsession with Morrissey makes me do stupid things. My brother makes fun of morrissey at any chance he has and my sister doesn't like him. My friends are sick of how many times i talk about him. I always see their eyes rolling when i do.
And that is why i come on here to talk about Morrissey to people who care

I know for me, the whole "moz to myself" or "not having to explain it" isn't so much due to the fact that I am trying to exclude other people from a little secret Morrissey fantasy world that I have created for just the two of us. It's more that Morrissey's work tends to be rather galvanizing...I think you tend to gravitate towards liking him or hating him rather quickly. A lot of people really just don't get what I love about Morrissey's work, so I don't really try to explain why I feel like I do. Sure, sometimes I spend too much time here chatting with fans or googling stupid pictures to place in a thread (*my own shameful addiction )...but honestly, it's an escape like anything else and I know, from personal experience, if I wasn't wasting time on solo, I'd be wasting it elsewhere.
The fact is that if you're feeling alienated from your wife, suffering from admittedly low self confidence because of the situation and have your kids asking what's up with Mommy and Morrissey, maybe you should speak honestly with her rather than voice your frustrations on a worldwide forum. I mean, if I was with someone who wanted to share in my Moz passion, I would be ecstatic. If you feel unwelcome or like you are getting in the way of your wife and her love of Moz...maybe there is bigger problem there than Moz?
I love Morrissey and sure, I can get caught up in Mozmania sometimes. I'll listen to his music more than other bands, read interviews, try to go to multiple shows and chat with fans...but I know for me personally, it's not a situation where I would sacrifice my loved ones well being for a mere popstar...regardless of how big a fan I am. The people who say things like "I would leave my husband or wife for Moz and I tell them so" AND mean it...haha, well simply put...they frighten me. LOL
