Jukebox Monday



I'm taking a blogging break this week. I have books and blogs to read, and some 'people with extremely good taste' to check out; so I will be lurking in your bushes and trying to de-tangle it all.
And as they say, [who are 'they' btw? I've often wondered] you should always quit whilst you're ahead...

Who are these 'people with extremely good taste', Miss Scarlet? And what are you going to give them to eat?

Dave said...

Have a nice break. I'm sure we'll all miss you.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: Tsk!!!

Dave: I'll have a bit more time to watch you...

Jimmy Bastard said...

I feel slightly cheated. I've just got used to you being around.

Do drop by, I'll leave the back door ajar, just for you.

KAZ said...

Don't stay away too long

Clyde said...

Ooh, I do love a good lurk in a nice bush.

Enjoy

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Oh you're just doing a Mrs P now aren't you? Peeping through the curtains to see if anyone's marching up the street protesting your absence. Well do me a favour while you're out - go and lurk at McChe's place a bit and tell him to get off my bloody 'puter or else I won't be able to post anything next weekend either. This weekend's effort was not up to my usual standard as I only had half an hour to think it up.

Eryl Shields said...

When you find the people with extremely good taste will you let me know, I'd like to have a look at them too.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Jimmy and Mr Clyde: Now I'm definitely on my way to lurk in your bushes!

Kaz: I have blogger's blur and blogger's squint! I will be back when I've recovered from looking at all the nekkid men on Infomaniac.

Daphne: Truth be known, I spend too much time blogging and not enough time watching adverts. I need to do some research otherwise I'll turn into a Youtube Jukebox!

scarlet-blue said...

Eryl: I think you're one of them!

xl said...

Please drop bread crumbs so you'll be sure to find your way back!

MJ said...

I feel a bustle in my hedgerow.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr XL: I will be leaving a trail of discarded M&S undies [with reinforced cotton gussets], biscuit crumbs, globules of creme egg and I will be closely followed by someone wielding a Dyson crevice attachment so that I'm not lonely.

MJ: Indeed, I may affix a small bustle in my undergarments, just so that I have something to sit on whilst looking at the nekkid men on Infomaniac.

BEAST said...

Ooooh what a spangley you tube . I have met the three degrees on a number of occasions , they used to stay at the hotel I worked in , very nice ladies.
Be careful if your lurking in my bushes they are very spiney

Jane P said...

I've just started bloggind daily because you've started visiting me, and then you say you're going to take a break. that's hardly fair, is it?

Wow, that was awkward said...

Be sure to stay hydrated and don't talk to strangers unless they offer you candy. Oh, and definitely don't bend over on Polk Street.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: I will be very careful with your spiky bush, Mr Beastie. I may even bring my secateurs and give you a trim.

Jane: I am not dead. I am resting and I'm still making house-calls. As you will see when you roll in from your hot date.

Mr Awkward: Where is this Polk Street? Can you send directions? And candy?

Madame DeFarge said...

Scarlet, this sounds dangerously like real life. Are you sure you'll know what to do when you get there?

You relax and enjoy the view. We'll be very quiet and let you have a nice little rest.

Lulu LaBonne said...

Are you going to eat the people who taste extremely good Scarlet or merely giving them a good licking?

Donn Coppens said...

and I shall be right behind you..so to speak. I have been neglectful of my reciprocal duties and I'm off to see the wizards.

See you around.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Ah, The Three Degrees, Prince Charles's favourite girl-band, and I agree with him.

CyberPete said...

Have a good one. Don't take too long.

We need our Miss Scarlet.

scarlet-blue said...

Madam D: Thank-you Madam D... I think I had too much of a sugar rush at the weekend.

Lulu: I think I may dunk and nibble them.

Mr Coppens: Please could you pick up my trail of undergarments as you follow.. and don't forget to plug in your Dyson.

Gadj: But Prince Charles also liked the Spice Girls...?

Pete: Thank-you Pete... I have to rearrange my fridge and defrost my freezer... but it won't take long.

Betty said...

I go away for months at a time, and nobody notices :(

Still, as you were. You go off and enjoy yourself.

EmmaK said...

have a good break and don't OD on Cadbury's Creme Eggs. xx

CyberPete said...

My freezer is in dire need of defrosting.

Could take months for me

Mrs Pouncer said...

What on earth does Daphne mean? She can be very cruel. As you know, I am recently bereaved and therefore need boosting. Moscow Mules at Joe Allen, and soon. When's good for you?

scarlet-blue said...

Betty: Always make a song and dance about going away on your travels!

Emma: I think I've had too many eggs lately! I think I should actually think about the dreaded detox...!

Pete: Oh come here Pete and I'll give you a cuddle...

Mrs P: I'm free whenever you fancy, Mrs P!
I think a crate of Moscow Mules would certainly give us a boost...

Sx

Mrs Pouncer said...

Are you trying to say that you're egg-bound, Scarla? Take my tip and risk a high colonic. Remember the coffee enema I had in Pornic? Heavenly. I urge a purge with all due haste. Love you CP xx

Kevin Musgrove said...

Startle them at Starbucks!

CyberPete said...

Aww thanks! I need some affection as my parents are staying over for a few days and *GASP!* I didn't clean on top of the door frames.

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs P: Eggbound and developing bloggers bottom... I'll do a DIY with the colonic, with a bit of hosepipe [I have high water pressure] and then I'll run around for a bit. I'll be fine.
Love you too SBxxxxxx

Kev: I am credit crunched so it'll have to be Nescafe... but I'll do my best to startle the neighbours.

Pete: Are your parents quite tall then?

Sx

CyberPete said...

No not at all. But my mother always checks everywhere to see if I cleaned and then lectures me on proper housekeeping.

Dave said...

We once owned a house that some friends rented from us (yes, before I became single again I used to be a capitalist pig).

Whenever we visited them, I took some white gloves (motorcycling silk inners, actually) and made a point of wiping the tops of doors to check they were clean. I felt it was the least I could do as their landlord.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: We have a God awful programme here called 'How Clean is Your House?'.... I'm sure you are spotless in comparison to the people that feature here. It's gross - never watch it whilst eating...

Dave: Goodness me! You sound as if you were a Victorian villain in a previous existence! Did you used to tie wayward female tennants to the railway track?

Sx

Dave said...

Only if they wouldn't let me have my wicked way with them.

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: But you turned your back on all this nonsense, and carved out a new life for yourself. You saw the error of your ways... and so began the digging... You're burying your ill-gotten gains, aren't you?
Sx

Dave said...

Don't pry too deeply. You may be digging a hole for yourself...

PI said...

I'm back and you're gorn.

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: Ah! So you're a Mafia member on the quiet!

Pat: I'm having a week off from posting... and I'm doing a spot of redecorating.
If I go missing it's because Mr Dave has buried me.

Sx

Dave said...

But at least you'll get a proper funeral.

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: Oi!! Don't you start writing me a sermon just yet!!!
Sx

CyberPete said...

We had that show too, a Danish variety. Once there were two young guys sharing a flat (they were NOT gay!) while they were in University.

Well I sat there watching the fuzzy floors and such until they found chicken bones from KFC under the sofa.

I went to the loo and watched breakfast, lunch and dinner in repeat. I haven't watched it since.

Dave said...

I offer a discount to friends.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I watch it with appalled fascination... and I always have to clean the bathroom afterwards.

Dave: Will you just stop it!!!

Sx

CyberPete said...

Hahahaha I know. I always did a double take around the flat just to see if something hadn't been cleaned properly.

Like behind the toilet.

Dave said...

Just remember folks that if you want to take advantage of any of my services, I offer a discount to any friend of young Ms Scarlet. Just cut out and present this comment when applying.

Jane P said...

What sort of services do you offer, Mr Dave?

Dave said...

Weddings, baptisms and funerals.
