vinyl monday: the smiths.

Vinyl Monday

DSC_0766

This week couldn't be a to a shittier start (pardon my language) but, it's just been awful. I don't really want to get into the details of it. I'm pissed off and confused. I don't know whether I should just curl up in a ball and sleep through the week or if I should just pretend everything is swell, and just hope that it will fix itself.

The entire situation is pretty much out of my hands, so I guess I'll just have to sit back and see what evolves.

Today, I received my daily fortune from Miranda July that reads, "You are insulting yourself in ways I find insulting. Insult a hat like that and I promise the hat will cry. Today you stop" and I can't help but take that as some kind of omen. I mean, Miranda July is clearly not a soothsayer, but I sort of trust her for some reason.

Tomorrow, I'm going to stand up straight and hold it together. I want her to be proud.

In times like these, I look to the cathartic qualities of my favorite bands to pull me through. The Smiths will be my band-aid this week. Now, if only I could find some Neosporin.

oh, that does not sound good. hope your week gets better. i am pretty sure that miranda july is a soothsayer as well as being a genius and super pretty.
i used to listen to the smiths A LOT while i was in college... (not so much now) so it takes me back whenever i hear them.x

That sucks that you are having a bad week, Robbie ; _ ; I don't know if it will help, but if I am having a bad week I try to plan something really fun to do on the weekend - that gives me something to look forward to and sometimes that helps to remind me that there is an end in sight! The week will finish, and hopefully the next one will be much better ^_^

The Smiths are always an awesome and effective bandaid. They have bandaided me many many times before. I hope Morrisey's melancholy magic makes the shittiness bugger off quick sticks!!!
Also I'm with that Miranda- stop insulting yourself- don't ever do that!!
Take care, and be really really kind to yourself
xx

Awesome choice. Sending you strength and love - and it looks like you didn't curl up in a ball from the looks of today's post...which I'm glad about.
