  1. Girlfriend, I’m a liar–You know, I know, I’m not really “celibate”
  2. I wear aloha print on the outside
    Because aloha print is how I feel on the inside
    and if I seem a little festive,
    Well that’s because I am. (!)
  3. Driving in your car,
    I never never want to go home
    Because I cannot sleep on this new dosage, no no no, anymore
  4. Pain au chocolat on the streets of London
    Pain au chocolat on the streets of Birmingham
    I wonder to myself: will it be as good as Paris’?
  5. There’s a club if you’d like to go,
    you could meet somebody who really loves you
    So you go and you stand on your own,
    and you leave on your own,
    and you go home,
    and you think of a great entrepreneurial idea . . .
  6. I decree today that life is simply giving and not taking
    England is ours, we owe it a living.
  7. La la la la la la–Interesting drug
    The one that I took
    Tell the truth
    It really helped me
  8. To say the least I’m . . . truly complacent
    truly, truly, truly, ohh-aww-ohh
  9. Spending warm summer days outdoors
    Riding beautiful horses
    To a bed and breakfast in Luxembourg
    Ask me, ask me, ask me!
  10. Everyday is my birthday! Everyday is joyous and gay!
  11. So, for once in your life
    Let me get you what you want
    Lord knows it would be the first time
  12. Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said
    I’d like to give you nuggies all over your head

aloha print on the inside…that’s great! Love #12, too! My college roommate had a poster on our wall of the Smiths. That, and Echo and the Bunnymen.

I have a list up.

Awesome! I think number 9 has a mysterious quality to it. LOL. And this is funny, ’cause today on my blog, the idea of how a little viagra might have changed the history of art has come up, and here you’ve given us chemically-corrected Morrissey.

Oh, and the “entrepreneurial idea” is hysterical.

Ha! I’m in awe of your imaginiation / songwriting abilities. Love number 5, that cracked me up.

My list is posted. (!)

blissfully caffeinated´s last blog post..Dear Academy, I really don’t think it takes five people to present one award. Just a suggestion from a viewer who’s a bit irritated by how long your stupid show was last night.

Thanks! I really needed this, ’cause I’m feeling that sort of overblown, melodramatic way that is SO Morrissey.

There’s something about #5 that makes me giggle a little more each time I read it…

I’m listed up.

Thank you, Anna. I’ve had “Girlfriend in a Coma” in my head all day.
It’s 9 p.m. Eastern, but I have a list up. If I still get credit for it at this hour.
