I Got the Shiny Happy People meme....

Which is of course ironic - since I am THE most grumpy person that I know. So firstly thanks to Nickie at Typecast for well... typecasting me and secondly to my pink haired soul sister Rosie Scribble for having too much time on her hands and coming up with the meme in the first place.
The rules are..
1. Name a song that makes you happy - a song you would listen to if you needed a sudden injection of happiness;
2. Post an image that makes you smile. It can be anything - a silly photo, an image taken from the internet, anything that puts a smile on your face (and isn't too rude!).
So... being such a miserable cow is not all Morrissey and Portishead you know.... I have thought, pondered and wracked my brain searching for a tune so cool and intelligent - that would blow you all away - but the cold honest truth is that High School Musical is where it's at in my stereo (and every one in the house) right now!
FunnyGirl loves this song and we have re-created Troy and Gabriella's roof top dalliance around my bedroom on many occasions. This simple interlude and the memory from it that is etched inside me will never stop lifting the darkness.

'High School Musical 3' Can I Have This Dance? @ Yahoo! Video">

And if you can't stand that - then it really has to be a spot of The Smiths. 
I challenge anyone to find a place that HSM and Morrissey are referenced in the same edit but here I go! Even though I cried myself to sleep every night through my sixteenth year listening to the extended 12" version of this master piece in it's full orchestrated misery, it now offers me great comfort and warmth.... enjoy!
And as for an image.....

A girl and her daddy and the sheer love that I captured in this kiss. How could this image fail to melt my heart. My FunnyGirl and her daddy... every time I look at this image I wish that that kiss was shared with me..
I tag @lolas_mum @ilovemonty @20somethingmum @That_Kat  and @swhittle


  1. I must say, that photo is awesome.

    Happy? Pah!

  2. Great photo. Of course, now I can't choose a Smiths song, but I've done my best here:

  3. Why am I late arriving at this post? I have no idea. Not sure where I've been for the past week. Anyway, better late than never. Thanks so much for doing this meme, it is all fabulous and I love that scene from HSM 3 as well. I stayed awake through that film but I will confess it brought a tear to my eye.
    I love the line about me creating the meme because I have too much time on my hands. I have to admit you are damn right!!

  4. oooh thanks for the tag. now what to do!? eccck.

    Love that photo. Too cute. And totally understand why you wish it was you!

  5. Does that mean that you want to snog my hubby? LOL!
    What with me coming to your wedding - there is something not right about that!

  6. Great post and great song (The Smiths one). And you deserve to be tagged you miserable bugger :-p

  7. That photo is just too cute for words! Made me smile despite a bad day.


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. Appreciated as always. xx
