Day 2437 - Still finding trouble

Will this Winter ever end? The Winter blues have well and truly engulfed me this year, but as I write this the sun is shining, and at last there is the feeling that Spring is on the way - I do hope so. And at least I am off to New York tomorrow for a few days, so that will be nice.

Morrissey has been pretty much in hibernation over the past month or so, but he did make a very brief appearance yesterday evening in The Wrong Arms, in the guise of Dawn. I bumped into him in those infamous toilets, where he asked me if I had watched his latest recommendation - The Honourable Woman. (Ed - it was actually Morfessa's recommendation, but let's not split hairs.)  I replied that I hadn't gotten around to watching it yet, which is rather rude of me - I bet Pai Mei wouldn't have put up with such insolence from a pupil.

Dawn's only public tweet came at 1:28am - "Trouble has forgotten me."

This just isn't true - Trouble does still love Morrissey, and only recently it was walking beside him, chiding him, and not guiding him....in fact it was giving him a right old kicking.

In other news, it looks like My Love, I'd Do Anything For You is going to be released as the next single, which puts me in a bit of a dilemma, because I ALWAYS buy Morrissey records, but have recently decided to stop buying records, and in fact sell off my collection. I bet I buy it - old habits die hard.

The tour starts next Friday.

  2. Stop buying records? Why? I've had the winter blues quite badly this year too - thank goodness we have a tour to look forward to. Enjoy your time in NY, Rats.

    1. I've reached that point in life where buying 'stuff' and collecting 'stuff' all seems so pointless. We enter this world with nothing, and I quite like the idea of leaving with nothing.

  3. Hope you have a good time in New York, but don't expect to find spring there, they have been getting a lot of snow. Although, with the tour beginning, it may mentally make one feel as if spring is finally upon us. I would think twice about selling the records, once you've done that you won't be able to replace them. Have a nice trip anyways.

    1. New York is indeed cold, but no colder than the UK, and it is glorious sunshine. I love this city.

  4. Apologies this is a bit long. I was just going to ask how you were doing. Yes the winter blues, hard to do anything, go anywhere much less deal with daily life. Plus it makes all pain worse . No more records ? Well it will happen to all of us. I agree with Manc you will probably buckle :) Thank you for continuing to do what you do. I know I’m repeating myself but honestly I wouldn’t be where I am mentally if I hadn’t found the blog and all of you on Twitter. You were speaking about things being in the distance. Before the blog I grieved for all the things I could no longer do and hadn’t been able to do. Time had passed me by and I had been in what I call the ten coma years. 2015 I took hold of my health to fight against Big Pharma. Other then that I assumed I would be chained to a bed soon enough so mentally why even try. You changed that for me. You made me laugh. You made me question. You made me challenge myself but most importantly you welcomed me into this little world. For that I will always be grateful. In a few I’ll be an empty nester and I can finally see life’s possibilities before me, surprisingly it’s a little exciting. So please when you feel blue, or think this blog doesn’t matter or ever mattered, or in general question your sanity, please remember these words and be proud. You created this amazing community of M fans, have a very unique connection with an unforgettable artist, and you menatlly saved at least one person-me and now I can help save others. We are all on this journey together and each of us has a strength, the blog is yours. Mine is advocating for children/teens. That’s why M is so important it’s all about his voice. Yes of course M also deserves some credit for my improved mental health, he did have some involvement in the blog, I mean it’s all about him, but it’s always about him isn’t it ?
    Ps . That’s probably all the compliments you will get from me this year, so savor them my dear . Xo

    1. Well, what can I say? You are too kind. I'm glad this silly little blog has been of help to you. I'm actually very proud of it.....have I ever mentioned that it's a historical document in the making? One day people really will say, "Wow, did that really happen?"

  5. The cold & dark days certainly take their toll. The upcoming tour has been a welcome focus to help get by.
    Enjoy New York Rats.

    1. Why would I do that? I am highly loveable, surely you must know that. Anyway, I'll be flying back before then. I attended a fashion show last night though at Cipriani - I was the only one there in jeans and a Morrissey t shirt!
