Lemonade Monday on Sunday

Blimey, I've been given a Lemonade Award from CyberPete . This is awarded to blogs with attitude and gratitude. I'm blushing. I think I probably have more gratitude than attitude. Anyhow, to celebrate, I'm going to combine my Lemonade award with Jukebox Monday! Yey! So thank you Pete, this one's for you . . .





For Kate . . .




And this is for Wendy . . .




. . . and for everyone on my blogrol, who also deserve this bright shiny fizzy Lemonade award . . .




. . . eclectic jukebox? . . . Where's my hankie? I'm doing a Gwynnie now . . .

Congrats!
Alas alack for some reason I can't get the sound on videos for the last few days although my computer isn't completely silent.
I suppose I've pressed something I shouldn't have done:(

The Dotterel said...

Nice bit of Kylie at the top. And jolly well done on the award. What are you going to mix your lemonade with? Martini? Pimms?

scarlet-blue said...

Pat: Thankyou! It's probably my fault. I'm a pillock really.

Dotts: I'm a little fragile today so I think I'll take my lemonade neat.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Ah the Lemonade award is the one we all secretly crave, Miss Scarlet. I was expecting you to put up a clip of the R Whites lemonade advert. Do you remember the man in pyjamas, Miss Scarlet?

scarlet-blue said...

GB: Now why didn't I think of that?! I told you I'm a pillock!

BEAST said...

Congratulations Miss Scarlet.
I am having celebratory crumpet in your honour :-)

MJ said...

I'm having a celebratory strumpet.

Mrs Pouncer said...

And I am completely pissed. Love you C xxxxxxxxxx

Jade of the Jungle said...

Congratulations! Well deserved!

And I am singing into my hairbrush along to your jukebox...

Ginro said...

Ooops! The GenderAnalyzer has determined that your page is 70% likely to have been written by a man. Think it's made a slight mistake there, lol. I don't know, poor you. First you get called ginger and now this, lol.

Common Tater said...

Congrats Scarlet.
I am a HUGE Kate fan and Wuthering is prolly one of my all time fave songs. I remember the first time that I heard it..I thought that it was so unique and creative.

I listen to Aerial all the time..what a treat that is.

You made my day.
By the way I watched Scarlet last night in the Island with Ewan Mac..have you seen it?

wv was liket honest!
How cool is that?

Kate Lord Brown said...

Oh congrats Miss Scarlet - hope Monday sees you bright eyed and busy tailed. What a feast ... Kylie, Marilyn and the Sainted Kate - bless you (I'm a secret lemonade drinker - uhu - all Whites) x

Kevin Musgrove said...

Splendid, congratulations!

Kylie in a wet singlet; Marilyn singing "Diamonds" and Kate Bush doing Kate Bush... you certainly know your audience.

Can't sing along until I get me voice back.

scarlet-blue said...

Beasty: Yes Please! I like mine well buttered!

MJ: Erm... And are they well buttered?

Mrs P: And I love you too... how's the head this morning? Sxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Jade: Yes, I still do that. And I dress up specially. Actually I bought a microphone for added pose...

Ginro: Yeah, yeah, yeah... I'm a big ginger bloke in a tutu... I am also Geri Halliwell.

Mr Commons: A sensible voice! Haven't seen the film yet, but I will. I'm a fan of Ewan. Always loved Kate.
Word verification codes are the bane of my life.

Kate: Yes, I'm please with my jukebox. Thank you for your request, left to my own devices we'd be knee deep in Spice Girls and Madonna... and perhaps The Smiths and The Cure....

Kev: Go to Mrs P immediately, do not pass go, she is a doctors daughter and knows a thing or two about colloids. She'll put you right.

...a man indeed... goodness me...
Word veri: phagnite... Seriously, bane of my life....

Ginro said...

Well it told me that I was 53% likely to be a woman, lol!

scarlet-blue said...

Ginro: Let me talk to Mr Genderanalyzer... he's obviously in need of a good shag... deary me...
Sx

Mrs Pouncer said...

Scarls, me too! Genderanalyzer thinks it's 62% man for me! I am going to do Wendums and Mrs Boyo in a minute.

However, my word vert is capetarol, which is unsettling.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Mrs Boyo is 77% a man, which is horrible for Boyo, but the best bit is Wendolina: a red message came up which said "We can only classify sites written in English"!!! No, really, it did. Go on, you try. I am going to do Daffers, Gadj and Dr Maroon

Mrs Pouncer said...

Gadj - 63% man
Maroon - 67% man

but

Daphne - 84% man!
Genderanalyzer sucks.
I will do Kev.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Well, Kev is more of a man than Maroon or Gadj, coming in at 70%, but no-one can touch Daph at this stage.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Hmmmmmm. Just did one last test. Well, it's a slow day here, and, ummmm, I will protect the innocent, but, but, Genderanalyzer insists that one of your coterie isn't being entirely truthful.
Hmmmmmm. I see.
I knew I was right.

BEAST said...

Well Mrs P and EVERYONE else came up as more of a man than me . I only got 61% :-)

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs P and Beasty

Why are Daffs and me like men?? 70% is pretty high!!! I'm more manly than Beasty??!! I bet Pat is all woman.
I can't figure why Daff is 84%.

Who is it Mrs P? Whisper... no one will hear...

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Ah... Interesting....
Sx

scarlet-blue said...

NO! Pat came up as 54% man. Sorry Pat...
Sx

Ginro said...

I shall embrace my feminine side, and pop into Boots to buy some make-up or something, lol. I'm going to call a halt at stockings though, they look horrible with legs as hairy as mine.

My word verification was 'ousnessa'. I haven't a clue though as I have never heard of Nessa in my life.

CyberPete said...

Congratulations, it's well deserved.

I think she almost upstages Marilyn there. Bless.

savannah said...

*ack* i thought i'd left a comment here, sugar! but i must have only dreamt it/thought it/didn't do it! anyway, congratulations! xoxoxo

scarlet-blue said...

Ginro: Shave... and there is also Immac [stinks though]... I've spent all morning trying to figure out how 'genderanalyzer' is coming up with these results. Perhaps if I paint the place pink? I may try this just to see if it makes a difference. I'm sad.

Pete: Ah, Marilyn is obviously my icon of choice... but Kylie's looking good. Thank you for the Award!

Sav: I'm going to start saying 'ack'... actually I have started saying it in my head!

Sx

CyberPete said...

Marilyn is fabulous. I love that movie to bits.

But how can one pink outfit compete with all those wigs and outfits?

Plus that imagine near the end of Kylie doing the ironing gets to me every time. It's genious.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Just had a look at your GenderAnalyzer Scarlet - it thinks I'm a little bit manly (53%) but mostly 'gender neutral' - which is what? Eunuch? Ladyboy? Maybe we should start a team 'Ladyboys of the Home Counties' ... more fun than the WI?

Gadjo Dilo said...

I was IN LOVE with Kate Bush when I was 16, I don't know how to put it any more simply than that. Thanks Scarlet. She got me doing dance and mime classes as well. If I'm 63% man then it's only thanks to Kate.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I agree there are some great shots here. I think it was the best of the videos for this song on Youtube.
Of course Madonna had to go and muscle in on Marilyn's moment didn't she...

Kate: I've spent too much time trying to puzzle out what criteria GenderAnalyser is using to come up with these slanderous results. I turned my background pink this afternoon to see if that would turn me into a girl. It didn't. Yep, we're much more fun than the WI!

Gadj: Kate was brilliant and innovative. I'm sure you're more than 63% man. Also pleased that you found Mrs P.

Sx

The blame for GenderAnalyser rests with Mr Ginro... where are you Mr Ginro? Look what you started!

Bruthafromanothamutha said...

What a stunningly attractive young lady you are and a fabulous writer to boot!

its a pleasure being allowed a glimpse of genius

thanks

Gadjo Dilo said...

Thanks Scarly, but in what sense have I "found Mrs P"? (I'm married and she is ficticious - I fear it would never work!)
WordVer: "medne", Albanian drink made from fermented moustaches.

CyberPete said...

She did.

Kylie did the Marilyn performance at a Fox anniversary in Australia too though. It was good but Marilyn owns that.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutha: Why thank-you Mr mutha! Flattery: Also very good for smoothing passages!

Gadj: I meant that I was pleased that you'd finally exchanged mail!!!
And NO Gadj, please believe me when I say that Mrs P is not fictitious!!!

Pete: I think even Debbie Harry once claimed that she was the reincarnation of Marilyn!

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutha Just curious, but I don't suppose you know anything about word verification codes????
Sx

Mrs Pouncer said...

Scarlet, vouch for me. Gadjo, I am beginning to feel like poor Hermione Lee during Private Eye's campaign to discredit her existence. She went quite to pieces, poor thing. If you don't believe I'm real, there's only one way to find out: Daph and I will be disporting ourselves at Jct 11 of the M4 from 23 - 27 December at variable times. It is being flagged as one of the greatest festive spectaculars of all times. Tickets available from me at the usual address.

word vert. shbimpri. Barkeep! Two Shbimpris on ice, if you please, and keep them coming.

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs P: I've done my best. I suppose he's gone to bed now. Wake up Gadj, she is real, do you hear me???
Sx

Word Verification Code said...

aterer

CyberPete said...

I would like to see Debbie Harry do it, in that pink dress.

I think it could be postmodern or somesuch.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I think Debbie had the most beautiful face, she still looks pretty good. I think we'll have some Blondie next Monday.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Verification:$%&*)(&*"£

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

I may have the body of a weak and feeble woman,but I have the heart and stomach of a king.

There's something familiar about Word Verification.

Bruthafromanothamutha said...

Sorry, other than I type them in before entering my comments - I'm unsure what you mean.

scarlet-blue said...

Daphne: Yes I agree, something very familiar about him indeed...

Mr Mutha: Apologies. Some of us are very suspicious of the word verification codes... And now look.... He's started his own blog.

Sx

CyberPete said...

Please do, I need to be properly introduced to Debbie Harry.

inkspot said...

Genderanalyzer gets it right 53% of the time, in a sample of c. 16,000. Well, better than a blind guess, but not much.

Talking of Genderanalyzer, doesn't everyone want to do Kylie?

Gadjo Dilo said...

Hello Scarly, hello Mrs P, hello clouds hello sky, I can maybe make Jct 11 of the M4 on 23 December. I'd love to meet you and Daph. Or anybody, really. I'll probably leave Mrs Dilo at home: she drinks only unpasteurised goats milk and I suspect could not stand the pace of this event.

WordVer: "dyncy", the giggly way I'm gonna feel after a couple of hours at the M4's glittering Jct 11 on 23 December.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I can see I'm going to have to take you under my wing! You need educating in all things Rufus Sewell as well.

Mr Inky: I'd like Kylie's clothes and I admire her. But nothing more Mr Inky. I don't know, lewd suggestions in my comments box, whatever next...

Gadj: I have yet to hear from Mrs P regarding the Reading arrangements. I know that she is busy. She's probably being a bit cheeky at the moment.
I did find this:
M4 J11
Don't worry, there will [probably] be a method to her madness...

Sx

KAZ said...

Speaking of pillocks.
I left an extremely detailed comment in praise of Kate Bush yesterday.
I must have pressed the wrong button.
Now a 70% man wouldn't do that would he?

scarlet-blue said...

Kaz: That happened to me yesterday.. I wrote my replies and they all got wiped... so I can't be a man either!
Sx

Jade of the Jungle said...

I have no idea what this GenderAnalyser thing is (and I'm not sure I want to) but can I just say one of the joys of having all these comments ping up on my gmail inbox are the related sponsored adverts they seem to generate. On this thread alone I'm being persuaded to buy vintage Blondie T-Shirts, more obscurely "Local and Luxury Cheese" and completely bafflingly "Hot Chocolate on a Stick".

scarlet-blue said...

Jade: Ah yes, I think Google pop-ups are in league with word verification...I'm not paranoid or anything...
Sx

Mrs Pouncer said...

Hello Scarly, hello Gadjo Fotherington-Thomas. I am in negotiations with Daphne right now about what we might do with you .... I mean what we might DO on the M4 on 23 December. I will get back to you soonest. (Daph - thanks for your message; I will reply in a minute and a huff).

Word vert. ovsxvi.

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs P: What you might do with me?!!! I don't know first it was being threatened with colloids and now this... Goodness me...
Sx

Kevin Musgrove said...

I was quite interested to find that I was 70% man (I wanted the other 30% to be a paraffin-fueled steam engine) but have to report that today I'm either 62% woman or 64% woman.

And there's me, all week, doing impersonations of Hutch.

scarlet-blue said...

Kev: I don't know why I'm 70% man. Silly thing. I'll be doing impersonations of Butch then...
