Jukebox Madness

I've been left to my own devices this morning and I couldn't make up my mind what to play. I was going to go with Squeeze and 'Up The Junction', but then I was swayed by a few Madness tunes. It's been a bit of a mad year after all . . . Anyhow, I'm fed up with being embarrassed, with people being mad at me, and quite frankly baggy trousers aren't a good look on me . . . so I chose these three tunes instead . . .







I have a blinding headache, so I'm off to suck on a metlet . . . or perhaps even a meltlet . . . it's going to be one of those days . . .

Good Morning Miss Scarlet , you need someone to give you a soothing head massage . Maybe Miss MJ could have one of her houseboys scrubbed and sent over

scarlet-blue said...

Beastie: It would be a kindness if she could... just be sure that he is scrubbed and nicely oiled...

Gorilla Bananas said...

Oh Miss Scarlet, I wish I could give you one of our natural jungle headache remedies! And thank you for the musical clips - who would have thought those vulgar ruffians were capable of such performances?

Dave said...

I'd come and comfort you myself, but I'm feeling a bit delicate myself.

Oh, and just by the way, the cricket has now finished. Normal service will be resumed tomorrow.

Assuming, that is, that you want my normal service.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: Well thank-you Mr Bananas, for the offer. but I have to warn you that I'm not very good at swallowing.

Dave: I think it may have been the cricket that gave me a headache in the first place. Please please resume a normal service!

Sounds like a severe case of Mondayitis Scarlet - take one chaise longue, eye mask and a pair of maribou slippers x

CyberPete said...

Yes, it most certainly is Monday.

I made it to work, why oh why! Will watch the videos when I get home.

What I wouldn't do to be home in bed with one of MJs scrubbed houseboys (not oiled because that makes the sheets all greasy) right now.

The Dotterel said...

I never thought you'd be into the heavy, heavy monster sound, Miss S. But then, with Mr Bananas as a regular, I suppose...

scarlet-blue said...

Kate: I am suffering. It is too cold for anything but the tartan rug and the fur trmmed boots. And perhaps a coffee spiked with whisky...

Pete: With my laundry expertise I can afford to be well oiled.

Mr Dotts: I think Mr Bananas is a classical Gorilla... very refined tastes, this is why he keeps coming to visit me... ain't that right Mr GB?

Gadjo Dilo said...

Ah, happy memories, Scarley, thank you! How much brighter the world seemed in ones formative years.

CyberPete said...

Do you think Bold takes care of that too?

scarlet-blue said...

Gadj: You're home!! Did you have a good Christmas??? Oh, I will come over to see you.

Pete: Talcum powder is good for disguising spots of grease. Rub it into the stain and then dust it off. Keep doing this until the stain is barely visible. A handy tip, I think.

CyberPete said...

Wow that is quite a trick, you should have your own show!

Bring on the greased up houseboys!

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I also know how to remove candle wax from carpets. As you can tell I have been the victim of a tragic series of domestic mishaps...

Gadjo Dilo said...

Hi Scarley, yes, we flew back today! Did you not make the meet on 23rd December? I was hoping to but got no word from Mrs Pouncer about the details of when and where it was.

xl said...

Whatever a meltlet is, I hope it works!

CyberPete said...

Sounds like a naughty night in with a houseboy to me.

scarlet-blue said...

Gadj: No I didn't make the meet either; it was too far for me to travel in the end.
I'm pleased you are back! Big hugs!

XL: A meltlet is a painkiller that melts on your tongue. They're for twits like me who can't swallow capsules without having a dramatic choking fit. I swallow most other things though.

Pete: I need a naughty night in, I can tell you. I think my headache is returning....

CyberPete said...

Well grab a boy and... A cup of tea?

I could do with that right about now

Eryl Shields said...

What's a meltlet?

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Put it on your list for New year. I'll make your tea for the time being.

Eryl: I think I am the only poor fool who has to suck on a meltlet! A meltlet is a painkiller that melts on your tongue. They're for twits like me who can't swallow capsules without having a dramatic choking fit. They'd made by Nurofen.

Dr Maroon said...

Well it's better than a fisherman's friend. Badoom tish!
Sorry.
Ax
I'll have that nembutol now sister, thank you.

Heff said...

When in doubt, just hit "random" !

Kevin Musgrove said...

Over the past couple of months I've been wondering why there's no Madness in my record collection and you've convinced me that I need to rectify the situation forthwith.

Ah, work... I don't know what I'd write about without it.

Dave said...

Well, it is another day now, so no doubt you're full of the joys of spring.

Could you pop round here and clean up the grease and candle wax that my debauched life has left everywhere?

scarlet-blue said...

Dr Maroon: I'd never so no to a fisherman's friend... and they last longer than a meltlet...

Mr Heff: Hello Mr Heff! If I hit random then I would be embarrassed...

Kev: We all need a bit of Madness to see us through.

Dave: I would have thought you'd have a problem with grass stains...
