Introduce Yourselves

Postby girl_afraid » Thu Aug 19, 2004 5:28 pm

Nope, nothing wrong with Welsh names in general, I just hate mine because it sounds like so many "amusing" things, eg. puke, poo, pube, yadda, yadda, yadda... the bane of my life I tell ye!

As for the non-Welshness, I'm the same. As far as I know, no member of my family is Welsh, so I have no idea where my surname comes from! Ah well.

In September I'm taking English Lang and Lit, Modern History and French. What about your good self?

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

I'm putting all my eggs in one basket and just taking a National Diploma in Music Tech. Still, it's what I want to do, and it's better than real subjects. And if I'm being pretencious (which I can be regularly), I'm a genius.
I took French and M. History at GSCE level (and I'm presuming I've passed <!--emo&:huh:-->Image<!--endemo--> ), but they would be pretty low down any list of my preferred subjects.
So how did you find out about this site? As far as I can tell it's only spreading through word of mouth.

A cunning combination of extensive Googling and the Shoplifter's Union. For a band with such a cult-ish following, there are a shockingly small number of Smiths/Moz message boards and forums... I really don't understand it!

As far as I know, this is the only Smiths forum (there's many Moz forums). Of course if there is any others, they must be destroyed <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->
Oh, and try and get more people onto this one <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

Thanks, I believe I saw it advertised on some random Smiths site, I spend a small chunk of each day finding interesting Smiths sites, and this one seemed rather good even before the page loaded <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

If anyone is bored later and feels like having a bit of a chat, my AIM is pashernate lover *grin*

Calm down matey!

The forum has a certain time limit on threads, if there are no new replies in something like a month it will wipe. I have changed the time to about 60 days now, so hopefully only the very dullest threads will disappear <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

Yes things are doing okay for the forum atm, more regular visiters. Not sure I need a mod right now, it's a very peaceful forum. Mal_Adjusted is a mod because I was away for a few weeks and wanted someone I know to just check on it everynow and then.

If the forum gets busier, you and a couple of other people will be first on the list <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

Hehee, seeing that very few of you have AIM, and also seeing that I would very much enjoy talking with all of you, I finally got a msn name! pashernate_lover...quite a surprising name, huh?

Hello everyone
I'm 21

I live in Brighton in the U.K. and what a picturesque beauty spot it is... not

In case you hadn't noticed I'm terribly sarcastic... but I'm nice too sometimes...

I am a university Psychology student and I also work in Sainsbury's where I'm trying to be a supervisor - how sad is that!!

My only loves in life are The Smiths but paticularly Morrissey he is my current obsession. It's quite recent but still intense... I heard Hatful of Hollow and was just amazed at the neglect of them by others they are the best band ever!! Glad to have found others here with taste!

And... I'm a massively into astrology and as such I was very glad to find that when I was born Taurus was in Mercury like Morrissey was birthed!! Which is cool cos it means we think alike <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo--> very stubborn minded!!

Also my best friend's astro chart is exactly the same as Johnny Marr's which means they should be similar in some respect - which is cool!

Anyways hope I've not scared anyone off with my astrology nonsense

Take care y'all

Welcome to you both, I wish you a long and happy life. Or just hi...

Zoe, that's quite cool about all the astrology stuff, I'm not sure how much I believe in it, but any random Moz/Marr links are always good!

Lisa, what are you studying at Uni?

And mwahhaha for whupping morrissey-solo's ass! I do like that site though, except people can be really mean! <!--emo&:(-->Image<!--endemo-->

Elko, random point, but it's always confused me - if you're member number 2, who the hell is member number 1?! God?
