X-Rated

There's been a letter meme doing the rounds. So far I have collected 4 letters, FUCX, from Pete, Mr Swings and christ knows where else. I haven't got a clue what I'm supposed to do with these letters, so I'm going to write a list of favourite things that may or may not relate to each letter.

The F Words

I like everything French; French food; French Fancies; French films; French letters; and especially...



I'm also partial to the odd fish finger or two.

The U Words

I like Udders; Umbrellas; Uncorking; Undergrowth; Undergarments - Sometimes all at once.

The C Words

I like curiosity. It's good to be curious. And also courteous. Cigarillos are glamorous; so are corsets. And I also like Champagne, which is also French.

The X Words

Curiosity draws me to all things X-rated, such as X-rated blogs with content warnings, and banned videos [be warned, this is the banned version]



...I also quite like the X-Factor... and Xerox machines and xenogamy...
So that's that then.

That looks like an escapee from Filthy Friday , lurking on the balcony :-)

BEAST said...

O YAY and FIRST suckers !

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: Indeed! Please could you ask MJ to take him home...

Lulu LaBonne said...

We share similar tastes - except for umbrellas I don't like them, I do like umbellifers though.

savannah said...

a letter meme???? oh my, sugar...what's next? xoxox

Gorilla Bananas said...

You like udders, Miss Scarlet? Do you like your milk fresh then? I hope you squeeze them gently, making cows moo loudly is not courteous.

xl said...

It's like a bad Scrabble hand that you've made a triple score with, or something.

Dave said...

Ah, xenogamy. I practise it in my greenhouse.

I was going to say I'd scored 150 with it on a triple word square, but xl rather pre-empted me.

MJ said...

*gasps*

ME x-rated?!

It's BEAST who uses his backside as an ornamental fruit bowl!

scarlet-blue said...

Lulu: It rains alot. I don't like getting my cigarillos wet... hence the need for an emergency umbrella. Umbellifers probably like the rain though.

Savannah: Oh, I think you can do the letter meme now. Anyone who comments on the post can be assigned a letter and is entitled to do this meme

Mr Bananas: Fresh is best and I have a very gentle squeezing technique...

Mr XL: I think I've doubled my high score...

Dave: Welcome home! I hope you had a nice time and you are refreshed.
What you practise in your greenhouse is entirely up to you.

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: Have you seen the fruit in the video. Rich pickings.

BEAST said...

MISS SCARLET!!!
***Glares at Miss Scarlet***

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: Sorry Mr Beastie. *Hangs head in shame*
Sx

BEAST said...

***wags finger at Miss Scarlet and MJ***
I dont know show you girls a banana and you become all giddy

KAZ said...

Whatever happened to the wonderful Frankie?
Can we forget about the udders please - not really my thing.
I'll have lots of Champagne though.

PI said...

I had them playing together - quite fun.

Madame DeFarge said...

Can you have 'U' and 'non-U' words too?

A dazzling insight into your psyche, SB, and one for which I heartily glad. You are clearly a woman of discernment and taste. Fish fingers are fine, especially contained within white bread and tomato sauce.
You are a fabulous, unimpeachable, charming, xenophile.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: It's what you do with your bananas that makes us giddy...

Kaz: What about udders that squirt champagne?

Pat: you had me worried for a minute.. and then I realised you meant you had the videos playing together. Yes... I've done it too!

Madame D: Why thank you Madame D. I always aim to please. Have you tried the fish finger sandwiches with tartare sauce?

Sx

MJ said...

I do wish that Beast would pack his shriveled-up old prunes away.

U is for ululate.

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: Ululate: It's the sound Mr Beastie makes when his bananas and plums get stuck... or lost..

inkspot said...

Xenomorph! "Unh, it's a bug-hunt."

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Inky: Erm... Now lets not bring aliens into the mix. They are too scary...

eroswings said...

Fabulous! That's what you are.
Urbane! You've got class.
Charming! You're a true star.
Xquisite! You kick a$$

Very nice job! French fries are delicious finger foods, too.

HoodChick said...

Oh, was there anyone as sexy and hip as Ms. Harry in the day. The odd fat guy quite outshadowed her here.

Homo Escapeons said...

I was pleasantly surprised to find that if you have enough sense to wear a practical yet stylish suit whilst out on the town, that it is possible to get your hands on some exotic pussy even at the local ghey bar...
or was the Tiger/Caesar thingy some grand metaphorical statement on existentialism? Hmm?

Can you believe how rude those leathery young turks were to the nice young gentleman in the suit? Ghastly. I was beside myself when all that rude tussling broke out in front of the bar..and why was Pink bartending?

I wanted to scream "RUN AWAY NICE YOUNG MAN IN THE SUIT, RUN AWAY!"
You live and you learn.
I should just relax and not do it.

Gadjo Dilo said...

What a fun game! (Is "xenogamy" like "jungle fever" and the many other - equally etymologically dubious - variants?)

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

I'm not surprised it was banned, I should think the RSPCA would have had something to say about putting a tiger in a nightclub with all that smoke and loud noise ... I couldn't really catch what was going on in the rest of it, it was all going too fast, even after 14 viewings ...

Xena, warrior princess. You forgot her.

Dave said...

Gadjo (I'm sure Scarlet knows this very well, and was just teasing you all) xenogamy, which I do in my greenhouse with the curtains closed, is a word that botanists and plant breeders use to describe a form of cross-pollination.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Didn't Nursie in Blackadder love udders Scarlet? I've always imagined you more like the xquisite Queenie. Recall Flashheart also liked French ('She's got a tongue like an electric eel and she likes the taste of a man's tonsils. Woof'). x

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Swings: I'm flushing, Mr Swings! Thank you.

Hoodchicky: I think it'd take a man twice the size of the 'odd fat man' to over shadow Debbie.

Mr Coppens: There was a great deal of existential posturising going on in the eighties; along with profound narratives that seemed to suggest that we should all dress up in leather and frills and go party at London Zoo in the Tiger enclosure. Why? I don't know. But I have a few unusual scars from a party I attended at a local cattery.

Gadj: It is a fun game... I think you should have a go! I'll assign you the letter B, as B is my favourite letter.. you can do a lot with this letter...

Daphne: I have to keep watching it to satisfy myself that the tiger didn't get hurt...

Dave: Indeed! Xenogamy:
pollination of the stigma of a flower by pollen from a flower on another plant.

Sigh.

Kate: Steady Kate! Queenie was *whisper* ginger. But you are of course quite right; in personality we are fairly similar, and I was also quite taken with Lord Flashheart, woof!

Kevin Musgrove said...

We've not had a fish finger butty party at work for a while. It's one of the small consolations that keep us going.

scarlet-blue said...

Kev: I shall be waiting for my invitation to the next fish finger party... I will bring some sauce and a fizzy bottle.
Sx

BEAST said...

Ah now Lord Flashheart was a REAL hero

scarlet-blue said...

Beastie: Lord Flashheart... swwoooooon...

RN said...

Marmaduke Ginger Bits

mutleythedog said...

I thought I was the only person in the world to have bought French Kissing in the USA...

scarlet-blue said...

Mr RN: Enough with the ginger...

Mr Mutts: I didn't buy it, I taped it off the radio... it wasn't really Debs at her best, but I was a fan.

CyberPete said...

I have been known to visit blogs whose contents are most improper

Udders, why? Please explain.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: You guess is as good as mine...! It was the first thing I thought of that began with the letter U, which could be worrying.
Sx

Ponita said...

Perhaps undergarmets for U? Some lovely, lacey bits that are comfy and sexy at the same time.

I find it always makes me feel sexier knowing that I have on something quite lovely under my clothes, even if that is just jeans and a t-shirt.

Xena, Warrior Princess, is my hero!

scarlet-blue said...

Ponita: Oh yes! I like Udders; Umbrellas; Uncorking; Undergrowth; Undergarments - Sometimes all at once.
See here for my undie drawer...
Sx

MJ said...

I see we have similar tastes in undergarments.

Did you know that Beast hand washes my delicates?

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: Mr Beastie sounds like a very well trained houseboy. Silk knickers with fine gussets need a certain je ne'sais quoi.
What happens if he gets your delicates mixed up with his?
Sx

BEAST said...

I dont have any delicates Miss Scarlet .
The difficult stains on Miss MJ's 'delicates' take rather robust handling , altho the flame thrower requires a delicate touch

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: Erm... I will do my own gussets... I don't think I want a singed bush.

Glamourpuss said...

There's only one 'c' word for me...

Puss

Miss Scarlet said...

Bringing up the rear again, Puss.
