Using my name in vain

Writing about web page http://www.myspace.com/biffyclyro

Biffy Clyro, Folding Stars

Take a long hard look at yourself
How did you end up here
The blood drips like red inverted balloons
Tomorrow is a promise to no-one

If you want, follow me and I’ll lead you inside
You don’t have to run and hide

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

In a bedroom with no windows or doors
All the happy people are crying
You can’t hold a gaze for a second or two
It always ends in total darkness

If you want, follow me and I’ll lead you inside
You don’t have to run and hide

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier
You will be folding stars
You can’t even understand
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

It ends in a place with no love only hate
And a mirror reflecting the truth
In your eyes, in your face you can’t wash it away
From your cold, cold heart

Eleanor, Eleanor
I would do anything for another minute with you because
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier
You will be folding stars
You can’t even understand
It’s not getting easier, it’s not getting easier

I hope that you’re folding stars

Horoscopes

Do you believe your horoscopes or are they just a vague prediction that people attach meaning to so they can explain the things that are going on around them?

I have a daily horoscope on my iGoogle page and so often it seems accurate… is there really some truth in it or is it just a coincidence?

Also, your star sign – do you really have the traits of your zodiac sign? I am a Leo and I think people who know me wouldn’t be surprised to find that out.

I like to… what?

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

Google Game: Go to Google and type in quotation marks your name and then “likes to” (ex. “Steve likes to”). Type in the first ten things that come up and repost in your own note.

Hilarious…

  • Ellie likes to see the deer and says that in the park it’s possible to feel like you are really in the countryside
  • Ellie likes to go everywhere with her owner
  • Ellie likes to talk…and be held
  • Ellie likes to describe people in both pictures and words
  • Ellie likes to run and play typically for a puppy and is housebroke and up to date with her vaccines
  • Ellie likes to cover mama in puzzle pieces!
  • Ellie likes to eat, sleep, go for walks and snuggle
  • Ellie likes to dance with boys
  • Ellie likes to make her smellies from nature’s goodies…
  • Ellie likes to chase kitties, but when disciplined not to, she listens well

A few of those are true… i’ll let you work out which ones…

Unfortunately, I think Ellie is a popular name for dogs

I am getting unnecessary wrinkles…

I am frowning too much today… some days things just seem a little more tricky than others… and it’s not big important things, just little hurdles that you normally hop over quite quickly that some days seem to all mount up and make slightly bigger hurdles that you try and step over, then try and jump up, and then just look at puzzled and annoyed.

I must stop frowning…

EDIT: And then a little something goes right and seems to make the day so much better : ) Although the frown lines won’t be erased so easily when I am older…

P.S. I hate those whiny blogs where people complain about how everything is so bad in the world so please don’t think any less of me for having a little whine! And don’t look back at past blog posts to see if you can find another example of me whining – I am sure there probably is one somewhere!

Celebrity look–nothing–likes…

These things are ridiculous…I don’t look like any of these people – although Alicia Silverstone, Jessica Alba and Paula Abdul is quite a compliment – we all know I don’t look like them!!

And who the hell is the woman in the middle?! I don’t look like i’m about 70!! Last week I didn’t even look 18!!

Do I really look 17??

I just got asked for ID in Tesco when buying a nice bottle of red wine!! It wasn’t even like I was buying cheap cider or Lambrini!!

I know that the new slogan is something like – ‘If you look under 21, we will ask if you are over 18’ – but really, that is ridiculous – you have to be 18 to buy wine so surely this implies she must have thought I was younger than 18! I am 24! And anyway, I don’t look under 21 either – do I?!

Normally I would be embarrassed in these situations but I just smiled nicely and replied “that’s a nice compliment for a Friday afternoon”. I guess that’s what you are meant to say when you get a bit older!

Do I attract weird people?

I just received an email via my blog…

Subject: you
Message: look at your teeth

What’s wrong with my teeth??

I’m confused, a little bit sad and slightly scared.

Who was it? Now own up!

The others…

Writing about web page http://uk.geocities.com/yuri.leitch@btinternet.com/eleanorlovell.html

I've never really been interested in genealogy or tracing my family history – but it's always interesting to see what a google search throws up…

The other Eleanor Lovells...

Eleanor Lovell died in 1681 – link

A friend of mine saw a ghost of a young woman whilst she was helping out at a school, in a building, which used to be known as Knowle Manor. The staff at the school told my friend, ‘Oh, that would have been Eleanor! A sad story; she died on her wedding day, a long time ago, accidentally locked herself into a large chest in a game of Hide & Seek, died of suffocation.

The Urban Myth about Eleanor being locked in a chest during a game of hide–and–seek, apparently comes from this poem…

The Mistletoe Bough - Thomas Haynes Bayley (1884)

The mistletoe hung in the castle hall
The holly branch shone on the old oak wall.
The Baron's retainers were blithe and gay,
Keeping the Christmas holiday.

The Baron beheld with a father's pride
His beautiful child, Lord Lovell's bride.
And she, with her bright eyes seemed to be
The star of that goodly company.
Oh, the mistletoe bough.
Oh, the mistletoe bough.

"I'm weary of dancing, now," she cried;
"Here, tarry a moment, I'll hide, I'll hide,
And, Lovell, be sure you're the first to trace
The clue to my secret hiding place."

Away she ran, and her friends began
Each tower to search and each nook to scan.
And young Lovell cried, "Oh, where do you hide?
I'm lonesome without you, my own fair bride."
Oh, the mistletoe bough.
Oh, the mistletoe bough.

They sought her that night, they sought her next day,
They sought her in vain when a week passed away.
In the highest, the lowest, the loneliest spot,
Young Lovell sought wildly, but found her not.

The years passed by and their brief at last
Was told as a sorrowful tale long past.
When Lovell appeared, all the children cried,
"See the old man weeps for his fairy bride."
Oh, the mistletoe bough.
Oh, the mistletoe bough.

At length, an old chest that had long laid hid
Was found in the castle; they raised the lid.
A skeleton form lay mouldering there
In the bridal wreath of that lady fair.

How sad the day when in sportive jest
She hid from her lord in the old oak chest,
It closed with a spring and a dreadful doom,
And the bride lay clasped in a living tomb.
Oh, the mistletoe bough.
Oh, the mistletoe bough.

A bit creepy… Let's hope this Eleanor Lovell doesn't meet the same fate!
