What a Week!

Well it's been a bit of a week. Many of us are on tenterhooks waiting for Mrs P's response to my fitting tribute, and her acceptance of the Freedom of Datchet. Whilst we've been waiting, Mr Gadj and Mr Gyppo have been having some sort of weird competition to find the most interesting cover version of a well known song. Sorry Gadj, but I was swayed by Gyppo's Frank Bennett doing Radiohead...
If this isn't enough Mr Beastie has come down with the lurgy again and MJ has been fiddling with a cue stick and snooker balls [not for the faint hearted]...
And tomorrow is a celebration because it's Emappeal's birthday...



Apparently it's going to be gusty in the UK tomorrow, so I'm going to have a windy bush. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I do hope you don't catch a chill, Miss Scarlet. I suggest you wear your furriest undergarments.

What are you suggesting Mr Bananas?

Tis an Ill Wind That Blows No Good

BEAST said...

I am a martyrto terrible wind Miss Scarlet , one of the downsides to living on the coast and a high fibre diet

MJ said...

By “windy bush” do you mean you’re suffering from queefs?

scarlet-blue said...

Mr XL: Tis a smelly wind Mr XL...

Mr Beastie: Probably why you're having to sweep and hose down your back passage this weekend, Mr Beastie..

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: Queefs are very difficult... no, they are impossible to control...

There's nothing like a good stiff wind to freshen things up, believe me you'll be glad of it.

scarlet-blue said...

Eryl: Anything stiff Eryl would be enough to freshen things up...

Mrs P: Mr Bananas has a way with words and a way with the ladies... he is always misconstituting my words...
Actually, I've had my bedtime whiskey and milk with a dunked digestive so am feeling a little less sharp than usual. Which is quite scary really...

Rather a windy bush than a burning bush Scarlet x

eroswings said...

Thar she blows!

*Prepares to launch harpoon!*

Gadjo Dilo said...

Hooray, Claire Grogan! (Wasn't she in Gregory's Girl as well?)

Dave said...

I think things may be a bit damp, as well as windy.

scarlet-blue said...

Kate: Funny, the phrase 'burning bush' went through my head last night as I was lighting my fire.
No wind as yet... what are these forecasters like?

Mr Swings: I am not a whale Mr Swings. And you be careful where you're pointing that thing...

Gadj: She most certainly was, and also in the early episodes of Red Dwarf, which I've watched so many times, I could probably write a thesis...

Dave: You shouldn't take cover in a moist bush during a storm - an ancient Vermilion proverb.

KAZ said...

Lurgy and Flatulence - what trials that Beastie has to endure.
You must think of more ways to cheer him up Scarlet - even if you have to be rather inventive.

scarlet-blue said...

Crikey Kaz, that might mean more Bad Manners...

CyberPete said...

That's some version.

I'm not sure I like it.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Whaa'ja mean???????!!!

Betty said...

Mrs Miller did some interesting cover versions of songs.

My bush needs pruning, but I'm reluctant to get the sheers out in the dead of winter.

scarlet-blue said...

Rachete: Thank-you very much!

Betty: Is this a request for Jukebox Monday?
And yes, quite frankly, bushes grow for a reason...

CyberPete said...

I'm not actually sure.

CyberPete said...

Maybe you should lay off the cabbage if you have a windy bush or change position.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Ugh... don't know about cabbage... but something is making me sneeze...

Dave said...

Getting your bush damp in windy conditions may cause that.

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: I'm bushed...

Son of Incogneato said...

Hi Scarlet,
Thanks for dropping by The Return Of the other day. Sorry, I’m a bit remiss on my replies and what not.
As to your bush; it’s hard to take a stand without actually seeing the offending bush in question. I’m sure I speak for others as well in asking that you take a photograph of said bush and post it on your blog. That should clarify things a bit.

Yours,
Son

ps - I have, in fact, a masters in vegetation ecology. Although I specialized in the spruce forest mosses of Fennoscandia, I know a thing or two about bushes as well.

scarlet-blue said...

Son: Hello Son! Thanks for dropping by.... It's a dwarf of a bush really, certainly not yet a forest... I probably won't even need my Ikea step ladder to sort it out...

CyberPete said...

You should see you someone about that, it could be an infection

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Bit of yoghurt on a tampon... I'll be fine.

Glamourpuss said...

It was both gusty and wet. Not sure what that means for your bush, but I hope it's in good order anyway.

Puss: Thank-you Puss, I seem to have survived... slightly ruffled...
