Missy Higgins CD & Fun Contest



Well, August has been a blazing fast month for us! Kids are back to school, so that gives me a little more time to kick it with some tunes...
Recently discovered Aussie songstress Missy Higgins, and I'm downloading all the tracks that I can find! A song was recently featured on The CW's "One Tree Hill"!


She's an amazing talent, and her second CD, On A clear Night, is brilliant! Released in the US in April 2008, Missy works her magic with winning music, lyrics and vocals. Her superb talent is demonstrated in my favorite track (so far) in "Peachy" - featuring guest appearance by Neil Finn on electric guitar. Missy states that this tune is a "pissed off feel good" song - hey, I can totally relate! LOL

I'm listening to "On A Clear Night" again and again.

A lot has been going on with Missy in the past few weeks – she’s on tour with Indigo girls, two of her songs have been featured on FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance”, she performed on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” AND her album is currently Top 20 on Itunes!

Really, I can't remember the last time I was really pissed off! But I want to win this.

I get annoyed easily, things do piss me off, but it's usually random- annoyed with my MIL, or pissed at a bad driver, etc. but those are things that I get over quickly.

I get really upset when people treat my family badly. I was shopping recently with my mother, and the salesperson was *so* rude to her I could barely contain myself.

The last time I was really p'd off was Friday night. We were camping and had been trying to get my 1 year old asleep for several hours. It got to be around 11:00pm and I decided I'd take him on a walk in the stroller, again, and a guy sitting in a group around a campfire said "Those people still have their baby up. Did you see that?" I wanted to take my little guy over to him and tell him if he thought he could do better to go ahead and try.

I don't get pissed off that easily (more upset or generally stressed) but there's one time I remember because it was preserved on film. My little sister was graduating from eighth grade, and after the ceremony I really had to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately the only restrooms open were in the gym/multipurpose room, where they were holding a dance for the graduates, and only students were supposed to use it. Well, I was a very by the book teen, and although they probably wouldn't have kicked me out (where was I supposed to go?), I didn't think I should risk it, so I decided to wait. Of course, as with any graduation ceremony, a lot of pictures had to be taken, and it seemed to take forever before we could leave. So I had to pose for a picture with my sister in her cap and gown, my parents all dressed up and smiling, and me with my arms crossed in front of my chest and scowling like the dickens! It's just such a funny picture that I laugh whenever I see it!

I was pretty pissed off at yoga class today when everything kept distracting me. People's cell phones ringing, etc etc... Great giveaway, thanks!

The last thing that pissed me off was at the grocery story.we're all standing in line a good 15 minutes and they open a new register. Instead of taking people who have been waiting all that time they just open and people run to get in that line. Thank you I feel better now.

It pisses me off when people who don't have any authority go around bossing their peers around as if they do have authority!

zwriter said...

The only time I ever get “pissed” is when someone does something “not so nice” to one of my sons. Now this is kind of funny because my youngest is 30. Anyway the last time I got pissed is when a NASCAR announcer made a rude comment about my first born. Now that was almost a year ago and I still don’t like that famous TV commentator – and I can’t even remember what he said!

Getting a mark down on my yearly evaluation for some petty things. A boss who feels it is necessary to always have at least one negative. Don't quite understand that need to degrade, when there are so many good things to say. Need for improvement is one thing, hatefulness is another.
