If Morrissey IS retiring...

09:43 PM

Surely he'd tell us something and not leave us in the dark.

I feel morbid all the sudden.

That picture, the one with his sister, was right before it all started. Didn't he say he bought his first single when he was six?

I think I'm getting paranoid.

Surely he'd give us a farewell tour?


I'm getting myself worked up over nothing, right? I'm being silly...right?

I'm calling it a night.

"The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue"

11:39 PM

Or otherwise known as, "Let Sleeping Corpses Lie"

I'm a huge fan of horror movies. My favorite being Supernatural ghostly type films. I'm not big on zombies, really. However I wanted to watch one tonight, and this one came up in my queue on Netflix. Of course I wanted to watch it because of where it was filmed as I've really never seen much of Manchester at all. This film was made in 1974 as well, so I knew it would be very much like how Morrissey would have seen it back then. I don't know if it was really filmed there or not, but what I did see of "Manchester" in the film and also the country side, well it was so beautiful. I mean, I had to look past the blood and guts, but other than that...

I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone. The acting is terrible, but there are a few really creepy moments in the movie that made me cringe.

When I was about twelve my brothers rented "Day of the Dead" and I told them I was going to watch it with them. They told me flat out, "NO YOU'RE NOT!" Well, finally after about thirty minutes of pleading and telling them it wouldn't bother me, they let me watch it. To this day I've never gotten the images out of my mind! Especially the elevator scene - and if you've seen that movie, you'll know what I'm talking about.

So, now I'm off to sleep with images of red eyes, ghastly faces, and arms reaching out to grab me.

Ha! I'll never learn...Give me a ghost any day!!!

Whose heart is achin' for a breakin'...

10:06 PM


This is one of my favorite songs. I'd say in my personal top 20 - maybe even top 10.

It's now or never

10:03 AM

oh, let's face it. As far as this gal is concerned, it's just...never.

I'm not being very optimistic today, am I? There's no reason for me to feel this way as I actually have a lot going on, and I've never felt better. I guess, though, that when one has suffered through years of horrible bouts of dark depression, it is hard to grasp the "all roses and sunshine" concept!

Am I being a wee bit overly dramatic? Some would say, "most definitely, Hig!", and some may say a simple, "uh, yeah...", but there are a few who would totally agree and understand where I am coming from.

Life does get better with age, but then I'm afraid to talk too much about happiness because I'm scared it'll leave me all too soon, and I'll end up being a hollow shell of a person again. And that's just too risky. I never want to feel that way again. I'd rather die.

So, on with the day, the month, the year!

I hope Morrissey tours in 2011. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to rush to the stage now that I've got a messed up ankle. Maybe he'll play more seated venues than general admission...Here's hoping, anyway.

Just an early morning bitch session - no worries.

04:27 AM

My cats woke me up at six this morning and I couldn't go back to sleep. It's okay, though. They have needs and wanted to spend time with me. They don't get to see me as much as they used to, and I think it makes them sad.

I don't feel particularly well - especially since I just sneezed about fourteen times in a row. I think I may be coming down with something as I'm always tired lately and I just feel...ugh.

I have to go out of town today and won't be back to my safe haven until late Friday.


That's just life and sometimes you gotta do the things you don't wanna do, right? Well, I'm here to tell you the answer to that question is: NO!

Ill at ease, today...ill at ease. It's not going to be fun.

I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming...

05:04 PM

I had a dream the other night that Morrissey announced tour dates - and I was frantic!! I had a map out marking all the shows I was attending and how I was going to get to them. It was insane. From all the marks and lines displayed on the map, it looked like I had planned to attend a show in every state.

Well, a girl can dream.

I have been so very busy with work and classes. All is well in Higgyland, though. I'm content - which comes with age, I find. I like being busy. I don't have time to worry or over-think things. Life just flows like a river and I go with it. I have been painting a bit, but the piece I'm working on isn't coming out as I'd like. However, usually it's those works of art you can't get right that turn out to be your best. We'll see, I guess.

Until next time, I'm off to watch a bit of Dexter. I've really grown quite fond of the show, and I LOVE Michael C. Hall. How exciting it was to find out he's from Raleigh! Ah, such talent here in NC!

55 Years Ago Today...

Please remember...

Just as I thought...

03:11 PM

Not one limb, branch, or leaf out of place. Doesn't even look like it hardly rained!! The tropics look busy, though...I'm not sure if I'll completely unpack or not.

I'm tired. And now I want to go to bed.

Safe in the arms of...

Durham, NC.

Haven't been here since Morrissey played at DPAC. What a lovely memory...

Waiting Earl out. Watching the weather channel intently...Hoping all goes well.
