Phew. That's a relief. Though wasn't Marilyn naturally a 'strawberry blonde'/'auburn'/other euphemisms ..? Never did her any harm ... it's what peroxide was made for! Happy Halloween x

Gorilla Bananas said...

I never thought you were ginger, Miss Scarlet. I would guess your natural hair colour matches that of Captain Scarlet, your marionette brother. Are you sure you've got Mrs Pouncer's first name right?

Jade of the Jungle said...

Good grief, what slander! Of all the accusations one can level at a girl, that is quite possibly one of the worst.

I feel your pain.

BEAST said...

I never thought your were ginger iether Miss Scarlet . But as long as one pays attention to details and have 'matching collar and cuffs' I suppose it doesnt matter the shade .

M C Ward said...

I once grew a goatee beard and it was a bit ginger. There, I've said it.

Thank you for all your kind words of support. I'm feeling a little bit better now.

EmmaK said...

come on lady, you're too damned mysterious, what about a shot from behind so we can see what color your barnet really is?

MJ said...

Oh my goodness, there really IS a Mrs. Pouncer.

I thought that was the name of your pussy!


Oh, hello Beast.

scarlet-blue said...

Emma, well actually I was going to do that...but I do have red highlights mixed with the blonde. Not stripes I hasten to add! I'm not stripey!

scarlet-blue said...

MJ!!!! Mrs Pouncer - My pussy???? Oh my lord!!!! Oh dear!!! I think I'm going to need a proper drink!

Gadjo Dilo said...

Mrs Pouncer's pussy?? Memories of Molly Sugden in Are You Being Served are unnecessarily aroused.

Scarlet, dear, I have made a defense of gingerness on my latest post in the hopes that you and others like you will be able to come to terms with this. You'll feel so much better when you've done so!

MJ said...

See my list of ginger posts here. I've another one planned soon.

word verification: grope

Mr Coppens said...

Not to worry.
To be quite honest I don't even care if the carpeting matches the draperies.

savannah said...

why were they saying you were a ginger, sugar? xoxo

(btw, isn't mrs. pouncer's given name, clarissa?)

(done packing for now, we're drinking martinis until the spirit(s) moves us to resume!)

Scruples said...

Be nice to the poor ginger lady, she's very pretty.

mutleythedog said...

I like ginger girls they are always grateful....

scarlet-blue said...

Gadj: I have no need to come to terms with being ginger...because I AM NOT GINGER...but nonetheless thank you for your concern.

MJ: I look forward to your future ginger post. I'm sure it will be of interest to those who are ginger. I am not. As you can clearly see from my photogragh...but nonetheless thank you for your concern.

Mr Coppens: You are a love! There are parts of me that are brunette. But those parts tend to get waxed and shaved.

Savannah: Thank Christ you are here with the martini's! Mrs P called me 'ginger', so I called her 'Clara'. I think it was a fair exchange of insults. She called me 'Ginger-Blue'!!!!!

Scruples: Thank-you for your support and welcome. I'm not ginger.

Muts: I'M NOT GINGER....but I am always grateful.....

Scarletxxxxxxx

Grump said...

Dear Ginger Meg, ooops confused thought I was somewhere other. I hope your writing commitments have been completed. A note or two would be appreciated muchly.

scarlet-blue said...

Hello Grump: ASAP.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I wish you'd say one way or another, the prevarication's tantalising. (-:

I'll stop teasing you now, I don't want to be cruel. I owe you a Babycham.

:: Wendy :: said...

Who is this Ginger?
And what have they done that makes the possibility of you being them so scurrilous (only spelt properly of course)?

Scarlet - I believe your protestations of nongingerosity, even if nobody else does.

I confess to having a single ginger hair in my moustache; so either I'm a mutant or there was a redhead somewhere in my ancestry.

Before we drop the subject entirely, may I trot out the fairly recent 'Now Show' gag about Ginger Nuts being renamed in the interests of political correctness?

They're now to be called "Strawberry Blonde Testicle Biscuits"...

scarlet-blue said...

Kev: I confess, when I was younger I had a 'twang' of auburn - I have a few Irish genes. Alas the red faded, so now I have it dyed a bit copper, and highlighted with a bit of blonde. I'm looking very autumnal at the moment. I will be blonder at Christmas because this goes well with gold tinsel.
After this confession, can I have a brandy in my Babysham please?

Wendy:I confess, I am Geri Halliwell...

Gyppo: I have a feeling that this joke will appeal very much to Miss MJ!!!

BEAST said...

Geri Halliwell is good ....ronald McDonald isnt :-)

The Dotterel said...

I'm totally confused now! Can we have a simple list - ginger/not ginger and be done with it?

scarlet-blue said...

Beasty: Definitely Geri...nothing like Ronald!!!!

Dotterel: Well, it's like this, it's a bit auburny with blonde highlights and a bit of a coppery tint...suits the autumn season. It shouldn't be mistaken for ginger. It's not in anyway ginger....

Can Bass 1 said...

Of course not! (What is this nonsense, Scarlett dear?)

Can Bass 1 said...

Oh, and I was about to 'tig' you, but see you've already been 'done' so-to-speak. Damn!

scarlet-blue said...

You can 'tig' me again Mr Bass...and then I could 'tig' you back...we could 'tig' forever...

Mrs Pouncer said...

Good heavens. Cannot an Englishwoman take herself away for a brief cultural visit to one of our gracious cities, and not return to find her good name besmirched and begrimed with innuendo, both single and double? It really is beyond reason, and of a vulgarity of the worst order.
Scarlet, you seem unable to keep order and, like an ineffectual landlady at a rowdy boarding-house, you allow your paying guests to run riot at the expense of more delicate souls, such as myself. I make this suggestion: you must either rule with an iron fist, or sell out to Malmaison, who at least know the value of a refined client base.

Kevin Musgrove said...

The ginger hand in the velvet glove

scarlet-blue said...

Hello Mrs P, yes it all got a bit out of hand without your steadying influence...I still have a lot to learn. Sorry and all that....

scarlet-blue said...

And Kev - behave yourself! Mrs P is back!

Glamourpuss said...

Auburn? Strawberry blonde?
