Gosh, that video brought back childhood memories - you have no idea how wierd I thought the adults were as a kid, especially their dress sense....

Have a nice hot cocoa (with a dash of Baileys - yum!)....

As for being "Banana'd", GB will be thrilled when he sees this....

scarlet-blue said...

Lostlamb: Indeed he will be, and he is also talking 'Disorderly Conduct'!
Synchronicity!

Gorilla Bananas said...

I am actually relieved this post is not about me, Ms Lamb. Heaven know what cheek Miss Scarlet would be capable of with my hairy form to inspire her. They way they were walking in the tunnel reminds me of something. The Mummy Returns I think.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I'd forgotten that the video was so silly.

A good start to 2009!

HoodChick said...

Wow, scary flashbacks. I never understood why they thought floods were attractive.

Are RaRa skirts and brushed-cotton nightware back in fashion yet?
Happy new year,

Donn Coppens said...

Now you've gone and done it...
I'm off to listen to
dee-deedle-dee
dee-deedle-dee
Robert de Niro's waiting
talkin' Italyan
talkin' Italyaaaan

Hope that you are re-hydrating yourself with something yummy.

BEAST said...

Ha Ha Ha that vid must have cost about a fiver to make . I loved Banarama .Why havn't they reunited yet Miss Scarlet

Dave said...

I can think of nothing to add that is not capeable of being misinterpreted, so shall keep my lips shut (always good advice).

Autolycus said...

Have a good one, whatever sort of fruit you become..

WV, btw: dupse. Probably the sort of mood you're in at the moment.

KAZ said...

I've been looking for some of those boots for weeks.
When you find out what day it is can you let me know please.

PI said...

Alec Guiness said - when he was researching for a part - that trousers that are just not long enough, give that bananas look.(as in bonkers)I think he was right.

BEAST said...

You realise the mention of Bananas will start Miss MJ off

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: I thought you'd like it. Did you ever meet Bananarama, surely it was you who inspired their name?

Kev: A wonderful 'on a shoe-string' video... I'm sure I'm familiar with that underpass...

Hoodchick: Hello and Welcome! Floods, underpasses, big hair, granny nighties, camping under the stars - everything was attractive in the eighties.

Wendy: I am thinking of starting my own range of brushed-cotton nightmares...

Mr Coppens: Cups of tea and chocolate digestive biscuits seem to be aiding my recovery... but my head still hurts.

Beastie: I think they were skint and tried to reunite about a year ago, but some people are of their time.

Dave: Let it all out Dave, come on you know you want to. Lips should always be firm and generous but never shut.

Mr Auty: I always try to be a little fruity...

Kaz: I had those boots! It's Monday, I'm sure it is...

Pat: And draughty ankles...

Mr Beastie: Yep, Bananas can always be miscontrued... I'm waiting, I'm ready...

Sx - still a little tired....

Kate Lord Brown said...

Was that a Panto Banana Scarlet? Or traditional New Year's dress in your village? x

scarlet-blue said...

Kate: Not this time... this was a fancy dress party. All the talk of eighties attire inspired me. But I did feel a tad old...

CyberPete said...

It's so hideous it's fabulous!

Bananarama did reunite with the same success as All Saints.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I liked All Saints as well... Combat pants and vests...
Sx

MJ said...

Beast starts every morning with a banana.

I won't go into details, considering most of your readers are gentle and decent folk.

Dave said...

'I did feel a tad old...'

A tad old what?

scarlet-blue said...

MJ:Ah, the readers here have their moments... usually late at night, when they are very drunk.
Indeed the banana shot is rather graphic and eye watering... and not the sort of banana-ing that I would advise.

Dave: A tad old Pineapple tried to have his way with me. But I am saving myself.

Jade of the Jungle said...

Argh, I've now got that song stuck in my head!!!

Hope you had a wonderful NY!

Dave said...

How very Victorian of you.

scarlet-blue said...

Jade: Sorry Jade! Could have been worse, it could have been 'Venus'...

Dave: I'm warming to the Victorian theme... even though you're stripping off your layers as we speak... You'll catch your death you know... And MJ and Beastie can do cruel things with bananas...

Eryl Shields said...

Ankle baring seems to be coming back which is a bit of a bugger as I'll have to polish my shoes.

VE said...

Well...I hope you wore a slip! Gad...I just couldn't resist...

Happy new year

CyberPete said...

The only All Saints song I can remember besides that dreadful cover of Under The Bridge is Rocksteady - I love that song but alas I was the only one.

Captain Smack said...

That video was not even vaguely familiar to me, I actually thought it might have been a recently-made video from Egypt or something. I kept waiting for someone in a banana costume to jump out and start dancing, then I realized it was Banarama. Ok, I get it now. I'm a little slow sometimes.

scarlet-blue said...

Eryl: It's much too cold for ankle baring isn't it? And I'm short, so short trousers make me look like a diddy man. Not a good look.

Mr VE: Resistance is futile. I'm wearing thermals...

Pete: I may play some All Saints for Jukebox Monday... What do you reckon?

Captain Smack: Hello and Welcome! What a fab name you have! I doubt you're as slow as me so you're in good company...

Sx

WV: polamit - Like what I'm wearing at the moment..

CyberPete said...

You could be responsible for relaunching their careers

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I could be couldn't I?!

inkspot said...

Scarlet, Dr Maroon would tell you it's today darling, and do keep up.

CyberPete said...

Wait, is that good or bad?

In any case don't go near Dead or Alive

Dave said...

It's Sunday now. Where were you yesterday?

Ginro said...

I need a lie down after watching the first thirty seconds of this video:

These boots were made for walking

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Inkybabes: Yes, but can Dr Maroon tell me what I'm supposed to be doing? What shoes to wear? And whether or not my pink angora sweater really goes with my rock chic leather jacket? I think not. But I don't mind being proved wrong....

Pete: How peculiar! You and Ginro have picked out two of my 'significant' songs... I will have to write a post...

Dave: I am spending time delivering New Year's Eve to Armitage Shanks... I will be back shortly... I hope...

Ginro: This record is of some significance in my life... I will explain fully in a couple of months time... perhaps... I don't know...

Sx

Dave said...

Was it something you ate?

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: I think so...
Sx

Ginro said...

If it's anything to do with high-heel boots I want to know, lol.

Practically Joe said...

Hey!
I'm lovin' what you do ... and the way that you're doin' it!

scarlet-blue said...

Ginro: Now that would be telling. I'll save it for a rainy day... no I'm not talking wellies...

Joe: Why thank you Joe, I shall keep on doing it then...

Mrs Pouncer said...

scarlet-blue said...

Goodness me Mrs P, you crept up behind me as I was posting!
Well, shall we go to Kev's together? I'm going to go there now... lets raid his library...
Sx

P.S Pop over to Coppens - he will be pleased to see you, he's been asking after you - see Christmas post [I think]

Glamourpuss said...

Were you looking to get slowly peeled and devoured?

Puss

scarlet-blue said...

Puss: Well that's the theory... but I ended up with the fish kiss instead..
