Day 1568 - Of Mice and Men... and Goats

My previous blog entry featured a photograph of some goats eating a Morrissey tour poster. The picture had entered my Twitter timeline on December 21st, having been posted by a tweeter named @BattisAbby. It transpired that Abby had seen it on Facebook a couple of days earlier. The picture reminded a number of the BRS of the infamous Joyce Goat picture that was featured on the MorrisseysWorld blog:


THE JOYCE GOAT

On December 23rd, at 6.20pm UK time, Mademoiselle Fifi (@y20m7d27) arrived in The Loveless Go-Go Bar; which to those of you who may be reading this blog for the very first time, is the name given to our corner of Twitter (does Twitter have corners?) by Astra (@fadinggoldleaf - currently disenabled... and also quite possibly currently VERY intoxicated on Veuve). Mlle Fifi's visit to The Loveless was very short, but she must have liked the poster eating goat picture, because she retweeted it. Five minutes later, True-To-You posted the photograph in an article entitled Goats in Peru. A coincidence, of course.

It later transpired.... that's twice that I've used the word transpired in this blog entry, having not previously used it since July - how bizarre. Where was I? Oh yes, it later transpired (three!) that the goat picture wasn't actually real, having been photoshopped from an old African election poster. I thought it was strange that goats would eat Morrissey!

With the exception of Fifi's visit to The Loveless on the 23rd, all has been extremely quiet over Christmas, so I have spent time in the real world, enjoying the season and my birthday.

This evening Morrissey will return to the stage in San Francisco, and BRS members, Kerry the Cocktail (@Boozelette) and MerryAnn (@sadglamour), will be there with their blue roses. The big question is, will the two of them still be standing after a day of drinking, especially as Kezza has already tweeted at 7am this morning (San Fran time) to say, "I'm still shitcunted".

And finally, Heather (@Heathercat222) has noticed that in Lima, Morrissey sang, "will nature make a mouse of me yet". I don't know if he has made this lyric change before, but it is about time that rodents got a bit of recognition.



And finally, finally, here is one of my very early parody pieces, from this day in 2011: Christmas with Moz & Boz.

  2. Hi Ratty dear, I'm still busy with 'usbandflu, but I wish you happy birthday and I'm a little bit jealous of people in San Francisco today! Ciao.

  3. I suspect there are probably more than a few of us who are jealous of those attending tonight. Nevertheless, wishing them a fabulous evening (but not so fabulous they're unable to pass their roses over, haha!).

  4. I cannot tell you, (well, I could but would you believe me?) How awfully excited I am for this coming weekend! With plenty of Moz acquaintances up in San Francisco pics keep pouring into my insta, so I do not expect to miss a beat. Very happy for those that are there and wishing a fantastic evening to Moz and the band.
