An Interlude

Many apologies, I have been snowed under.... life and all that sort of crap and stuff...
I will be back properly by the end of next week.

Meanwhile, here is a short interlude. If you sit up close to the screen it makes you feel a bit sick and dizzy.

MJ said...

You will get yourself over to my blog is what you will do, young lady.

There is work to be done regarding my upcoming "Women of Infomaniac" post.

Hop to it!

Savannah: I know... if only trains really went that fast... especially through tunnels.

MJ: Erm... Yes, that all looked a bit scary... Although my ankles are quite fetching.

xl said...

I wish there was a way to speed up business meetings like that.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr XL: The best thing to do in a meeting is fall asleep... then they go quick.

Whirlochre said...

Wow. I just reached in through that rectangle and found me a bag of peanuts.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Whirly: Well I wouldn't eat them, they've probably been there since 1956.

Dave said...

Glad you're not stuck under a donkey, anyway.

underOvr (aka The U) said...

Ms. Scarlet,

I do hope you have a pleasant week. I'll miss your voice during the absence.

Take care hun,

U

CyberPete said...

Oh no! You'll miss the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts compo!

You must come back for that on Thursday.

4 minutes. short sweet and twisty. Just enough time to make a cuppa and eat a bag of twigletts. Yummy. Thank you

Wow, that was awkward said...

I jumped off about halfway through and used trick photography to barrel roll to safety.

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: Yep, sorry for causing you to worry... I do actually like donkeys... so I'm off to the seaside next week. Let's hope the weather improves...

Mr U: I will post as soon as I get back. I've been considering doing a mp3 of my sax playing... but... well, I'm sure I sound better in the flesh, or brass, or whatever!

Pete: I will be back by Thursday! And even if I'm not I expect to win anyway...

Wendy: I love this film clip. I could watch it all day... Is this wrong?

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Awkward: Ha, you probably jumped off when you got to my house... so you're a bit of a Milk Tray man on the quiet then??
Sx

Autolycus said...

Ah, happy days. That was a televisual thrill in those days. And that potter's wheel, well, be still my beating heart. Or the fluffy kitten...

Best of all was the opportunity to guess whether the interlude was down to the news slipping down behind a cabinet somewhere, or the leading actor in the next show getting stuck in the loo or having to be sobered up.

Not that I'm suggesting that's happening to you, of course, Ms. S.

Donn Coppens said...

The tunnelling is anything but subtle.

What the hell is going on out here? I sense a disturbance in the force. I was ready to pack it in yesterday until I remembered that I had a new bottle of Rum in the closet and that quinners never wit..no, witters never quin.

If y'er "get up & go" has "got up & went", then you need to have a good stiff one and get back up on the horse.
Just sayin' is all.
xxx ooo

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Auty: Ah yes, I think it's Mrs P who gets stuck down the loo whilst trying to sober up. Knickers flapping, and tights round her ankles, it's not pretty...
Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Coppens: Nobody has twigged that we're the same person have they?
Sx

Donn Coppens said...

Nope, not a soul
heh-heh-heh!

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Coppens: Our little secret ;o)

Jimmy Bastard said...

What you really mean is, you've been evicted yet again.

I'll leave the back door open on the cidey-apple shed. Help yourself to fresh straw.

CyberPete said...

Hahahaha that's the spirit!

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Jimmy: Is there room for my Smeg?

Pete: I think you should give free chocolate to all the runners up???

Sx

Emerson Marks said...

I needed two Gaviscon tablets and a glass of milk to get over this.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Marks: Hello! I think that can be arranged in return for a signed photograph of Lee...
Sx

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'm sure the Smeg will feel right at home on the dusty floor.

Wow, that was awkward said...

Are we talking about your boobs? Am I a boob man?

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Jimmy: Pffft... you must have blown that Smeg picture up very large to inspect my floor...?!!
Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Awkward: Goodness me! The cultural divide and all that! Here is the Milktray Man
I have been reliably informed that my boobs are very nice though.
Sx

Madame DeFarge said...

Good luck with real life. Never got the hang of it myself. Look forward to your return to unreality later

BEAST said...

Are you trying to tell us you Are now a train driver Miss Scarlet ???

Kevin Musgrove said...

It's just like that up here.

Well, the rolling stock is anyway. When it arrives.

Are you spending the enxt couple of days filling the fridge?

eroswings said...

I've always heard that the skies of London were gray--I didn't realize the same applied to the landscape!

I hope you get from under to catch your breath!

CyberPete said...

I think not, but thanks for the suggestion.

Regarding the video it's funny how little Victoria has changed isn't it?

You know on NDR (a German tv channel) they show a train riding around the countryside at late night.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Heh! The announcer refers to this as "trick photography" :-)

scarlet-blue said...

Madam D: Real life is such a pain... always trying to interfere. It won't get me though...

Mr Beastie: Erm... well actually... it would be fun wouldn't it?

Kev: Do you have colour up north yet?
I don't think my fridge has ever been full! But I need to visit a cosmetics counter soon...

Mr Swings: It's always foggy... we're forever bumping into red telephone boxes and tripping over flower sellers...

Pete: Sadly all the big stations are beginning to look the same to me...
I think chocolate is an excellent idea!!!

Gadj: I wonder what he would think of digitalization and HDD? I wonder what they'll think of us in 50 years time? Blogs will be like historical relics!! The internet may even become a historical relic and they'll have something completely different to interact with.

KAZ said...

I've never really understood how people who need to work for a living can manage to blog as well. :)

PI said...

Glad you're OK:)

scarlet-blue said...

Kaz: I've been trying to keep up with coursework and failing miserably! At just about everything!

Pat: Sorry Pat. I will be in Lyme Regis early next week and I hope to bring back some pics.

Sx

CyberPete said...

Maybe I will just send you some. I still owe you a letter. I completely forgot about it until I found the envelope while packing on Monday

Dave said...

Lyme Regis. Ooooh, I love Lyme Regis. Bring me back some fossils, will you?

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Yes, I've been checking my post box every morning, and never anything from Denmark...
Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: I am biting my lip... too many obvious jokes about fossils going on in my head. I will resist.
Thank you Dave, I will bring back a fossil.
Sx

Dave said...

You can come up and see my fossil collection whenever you like.

No double entendre intended.

CyberPete said...

*lowers head in shame*

I might get around to it sometime in the not too far future. Maybe once this Freakin' Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition debacle is over and done with.

I'm so nervous. I must have changed the photo around at least 20 times this week.

EmmaK said...

Do so look forward to rubbing against you as one of the legendary Women of Infomaniac. I am only recently one of MJ's chosen harlots but I am working hard to stay one of her favorites and if she says shave and take a photo of your pins I should jump to it!

Eryl Shields said...

Gosh that was fun, I'd forgotten about trains, X

mutleythedog said...

I can run that fast... really I can! Wanna see me?

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: I'm sure your fossils are lovely... I will have to inspect them one day...

Pete: It's Thursday!!!!

Emma: I'm still waxing and polishing! It's been a long cold winter and my legs and other parts of me haven't seen the light of day for sometime...

Eryl: The funny thing is that we had a millimetre of snow last night and there are no trains going anywhere this morning!!

Mr Mutts: Yes please!!

The Dirty Rat said...

They must work like stink in the restaurant car.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Rat: Hello! Yep... they must do... pity we don't have any footage of this though...
Sx

CyberPete said...

YAY! So get working on the captions

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: I am sooooo rubbish at captions!
Sx

BEAST said...

It's always foggy... we're forever bumping into red telephone boxes and tripping over flower sellers...
Dont forget the chirpy cockney chimney sweeps Miss Scarlet

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: And the pearly Kings and Queens that strut their stuff up and down every London street...
Sx

MJ said...

And getting your heels caught in the cobblestones?

MJ said...

Hey everybody!

It’s Freakin’ Green Elf Shorts Caption Competition time again!

Head over to Denmark to visit CyberPete.

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: And there are the dreaded pea-soupers...
I've had a go at a caption.. I will try again tomorrow.
Sx

Wow, that was awkward said...

Whoops, right. Lost in translation there. That's what happens when I replace my webster's dictionary with www.urbandictionary.com

Glad we have established you have good boobs though.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Awkward: So are you like the Milktray Man? And do you have plenty of toffee?
Sx

Wow, that was awkward said...

Well, some gals have asked if that is a box of toffee in my pants or am I just happy to see them? And I do put the toilet seat down all the time. Let's just say I could be worse.

~Static~ said...

You're right, it does make ya dizzy. I just puked.

CyberPete said...

You are no worse than me or MJ

Now give it a whirl, I promise it's fun.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Awkward: We will have to share notes on toffee one day. You look as though you are more than capable with soft centres.

Static: Hello sweetie, it's okay, I do have a bucket handy..

Pete: See! My caption was so rubbish that you didn't even realise it was a caption!

Sx

CyberPete said...

I did realise it was a caption!

Come on, gimme more more more.
