I asked my mum to check the spelling and grammar on this report I was doing, however I hadn't checked it bother hand and there was millions of really stupid errors in it, basicaly it was as bad as many of my posts on here. I am so emberassed. :mad:

I think I must lack concentration or somthing. It was full of silly mistakes like missing words out.

I feel awfu, I've been in university everyday for the last two weeks and university students will know how hard that can be :aetsch:

Oh well tomorrow is another day, maybe somthing good will happen.

word, spell check
They can only do a very limited amount. I kept changing contexts as well becuase I was having to do stuff to remember how I did it so it was current tense, but the report had to be past tense, it was quite difficult to write. I wish I was a car washer, no stress and no responsability.

Got my report from 6th form today- every subject teacher, including french, was ranting about number of little mistakes because I don't proof read- you're not alone!

Lol, favourite Smiths album is probably Queen Is Dead, favourite Morrissey album is more difficult, possibly You Are The Quary, or Viva Hate. Viva Hate may have the edge as there are some boring tracks on YATQ. I have yet to hear a duff Smiths album.

I applaud you; Viva Hate is indeed amazing. YATQ on the other hand is probably my least favourite Morrissey album.. one of the songs, if I recall correctly (sorry, I don't listen to it much) sounds like a dido song.
the Queen Is Dead is brilliant too, I love Hatful of Hollow because it wsa the first smiths album I bought at the tender age of 14 and I adored it, still do now. there aren't any duff Smiths albums as far as I can remember, a few rubbish tracks but mostly good.

(sorry for babbling but it's always nice to find a fellow Morrissey fan, most people thesedays are totally consumed by nme endorsed crap)

You would be surprised, I have been two Morrissey gigs this year and most the crowd are probably under 30. I love Hatfull of Hollow too, it was my first Smiths album, I admit I only bought it becuase it had This Charming Man on it, little did I realise its a different version.

I loved the tracks on it and got further and further into the Smiths. There is a big local Smiths scence too, I am attending a Smiths convention in April. I went to Dublin to see Morrissey in December, there was a Smiths night in a club so we went there afterwords, never thought I would see load of people dancing to Heaven Knows I am misserable now!

Also just a couple of pictures I have taken from my website in case you haven't seen similar pictures:

This is the iron bridge, not quite as romantic as the song suggests

Its one of the biggest eye sores in the area, its hard to believe there is a famous song that mentions it!

haha that's typical of Morrissey to write a song about such a hideous looking bridge, I've never seen it before but I have to agree with you, it certainly isn't as romantic as still ill suggests.

I've seen Morrissey twice as well, once at the royal albert hall in 2002 and once at the royal festival hall in 2004; the former of the two was definitely the better gig even though I was the youngest there(everyone was over 40, had quiffs and wearing nhs specs). a lot of "younger" fans have crawled out of the woodwork since YATQ because the nme have taken him under their wing again and made him out to be the best thing since sliced bread, but they're not really Morrissey fans, more Smiths fans who love How Soon Is Now and therefore claiming to adore him. I'm sure I sound elitist and horrid here but it's frustrating when these same people have ****ged you off for being a fan just a year or two earlier.

you live in Manchester I'm guessing?
