Do you know all the words to Morrisey's song with the lyrics: "the more you ignore me, the closer I get." It's Naomi and my song;).

I love that song. But what a song to have as YOUR song! I'll bet there's a story behind that selection? I hope it's not because you "bear more grudges than lonely high court judges".

I was just kidding about it being our song, but I have considered "making Christmas cards with the mentally ill."
