User avatarMy Morning Snap-It

I love blurry photos. For some reason they really resonate with me and even though you may have spent ages keeping your hand steady to get that perfect shot only for it to look as though my eyes have photographed it for you (my sight is really bad…) it still makes me titter like a dormouse.

Yesterday Siobhan and I drove 175 odd miles to Manchester to watch My Morning Jacket. I took a handful of snaps of the gig but this in particular is my absolute favourite:

It made getting back at 2:40am all the better for knowing I had this photo saved in my phone and in my heart.

It’ll never be on the front of a Hallmark card, which is for the best really… you’d feel fairly unappreciated if you received a birthday card with this on the front.

    Isn’t that the band from the episode of American Dad where Stan gets obsessed with them?
    Although you probably don’t watch it. Noone that doesn’t have to does.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    You are correct, tis the band from American Dad. I think the episode was called My Morning Strait Jacket. I love the dream sequence he has where he gets carried away by owls.

  • Why do you people watch American Dad? Why does anyone watch it? It’s like a Tesco Value Family Guy.

  • Elena

    Oh hush Christopher, you are merely jealous that you are out the Family Guy loop.
    Also, are you suggesting there is something wrong with Tesco Value? I agree its not on par with Essential Waitrose but still acceptable.
    Better go, think a child fell out the window.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    He doesn’t get it, that and he’s intimidated by men with big chins although if that lie was true he’d also be put off by Quagmire.

    FYI, your casual attitude to permeating childhood trauma is most refreshing.

  • Kevil

    Yes, very refreshing, you are essentially now just Miss Emily now in my head. http://familyguy.wikia.com/wiki/Miss_Emily

  • Miss Emily

    I gladly accept that name. She’s kind of cool.
    Yesterday one of my kids trod on another and I told her to stop moaning. Today she’s off school with a bad foot. Best Teacher Award goes to…

  • Elena

    I tried to sign myself off as Miss Emily for you but it thinks I am a new person and wants me to be moderated. Chris may wish to moderate me later, but in the mean time my comment was this:

  • Forget Chris, you’ve been moderated now. 😉

    You truly are an inspiration to us all.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Wa-heeeeeeeeeey!!!!

    (… what?)

  • Look at you, prancing in here after six years away, casually moderating people you’ve never met. It makes me sick. I’d ask you where you get off, but we already established where you get off in an old post a while ago, so there’s no need.

  • Look at me!

    (Is he cranky because he doesn’t like Family Guy?)

  • Elena....

    (I think he’s cranky because you moderated me?)

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Wa-heeeeeeeeeey!

    (… what?)

  • Elena....

    (Go with it Ian, moderating is the hot new thing. All the cool kids are doing it!)

  • (I’m not cranky, I like Family Guy.)

    Don’t worry Ian, I’ve totally got this:
    Wa-heeeeeeeeeey!
    (…what?) #matesquared

  • I’ve got this. Leave it to me

    (Moderating your girlfriend that is!)

  • Elena....

    (Not sure how much more moderating I might need. It’s a tiring process!)

  • I’m not sure I take kindly to my girlfriend being moderated so casually by another man.

    I don’t go around censoring Sarah without your say-so.

  • Elena....

    Oh Chris, we’ve had this chat too many times, you can’t be the only one who moderates me…

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Would it be too presumptuous to ask if I can moderate you too?

  • Elena....

    Come on in, the more the merrier!

  • Be gentle, it’s my first time…

  • Elena....

    I’m never anything less than gentle!

  • I don’t like where this is going.

  • Elena....

    Why not?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    He’s not happy on anything that involves me. It doesn’t lift his skirt at all.

  • Elena....

    To be honest, I don’t think I lift his skirt either. I think I should consider why he’s actually wearing skirts in the first place. I think I may be a decoy.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    That’s a very good question and one that has neither been posed or answered on here. It might be prudent to ask him in person rather than on here.

  • Elena

    Should we stage an intervention?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    I think we should. It’s a good excuse for me to make some bunting.

  • Skirt shaped bunting? Or is that taking it too far?

  • Elena....

    No no by all means go for it. You may also do dress and high heels shapes too.

    If I’m single after this intervention it was all your idea and all your fault.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Skirt shaped bunting hadn’t even occurred to me. Well done, Kevin, you earned that meme.

    The intervention organisers cannot be held responsible for the individual repercussions of the intervention. He’ll be lardy lordy woo with the whole thing, you’ll see 😀

  • I have not been, and refuse to become, lardy lordy woo. It simply isn’t going to happen.

  • Elena....

    I thought you already were?

  • Kevil

    No, he’s Lady Lordy Woo. It’s subtly, but importantly different.

  • Elena....

    Ah! Thanks so much for clearing that up!

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Can I get a LADY LORDY WOO from the studio audience, please?

  • You could if this were a sitcom, but it’s not. This is a working group for the decoration of Chirs’ intervention, now get back to that sewing machine.

  • Elena

    Right, Ian’s doing the bunting, I’m doing the cake. Kev what are you bringing to the table here?

  • Is it normal for an intervention to be planned where I can see it?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    SORRY I CAN’T HEAR YOU OVER THE SOUND OF THE SEWING MA… ah it’s stuck again. SO YOU ahem you were saying?

  • Elena....

    It’s too late for the intervention, guys. Stop it all.

    Chris found out about the stationery cupboard. We are doomed anyway. Let him wear his skirts in full glory.
