The Magic Six

I have been tagged by Madame D and Ponita. There are a list of rules to follow...

1) Put the link of the person who tagged you on your blog.
2) Write the rules.
3) Mention 6 things or habits of no real importance about you.
4) Tag 6 persons adding their links directly.
5) Alert the persons that you tagged them.

Okay then...

1) I keep forgetting to pass this link on to MJ. I think she might be interested.
2) I keep forgetting to post an episode of The Magic Roundabout for MJ. I promised to do this months ago.
3) My first role model was Rosalie [the blonde one] from The Magic Roundabout.
4) I love Dougal. I've always wanted a Dougal cake for my birthday.
5) I used to spend hours trying to teach my dog to talk.
6) I had better luck with my cat. She talks.



And now I have to tag six people. I'd like to tag Mr Mutts; Mr Beastie; Mr Auty; Kaz; Mr XL and Pete. Actually my cat chose the six tags, so you have her to blame. She's a British Blue funnily enough...

This just proves me right that all Brits, even ANIMATED Brits, speak funny.

MJ said...

p.s. CAKE!

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: I'm sure I speak even funnier... anyhow, it's a good cake site... with links to other cake sites... so, fill yer boots..or tights...

Gorilla Bananas said...

That Ermintrude was an uptight cow. I think she needed a good milking.

Eryl Shields said...

If I don't get a Dougall cake for my birthday I'll have to get a divorce and I'm pretty sure I know which will be more costly in the long (and short really) run.

PS, word verification is wigly!

xl said...

Thanks!

May I defer to a future tag as I did this one last November?


Oh Hai MJ!

PI said...

I used to love Eric Thompson - he was Emma's father.
The French banned the MR because they thought Dougal was based on De Gaulle.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Ah... the Magic Roundabout. The children of today don't get laid-back whimsey full of non-sequiters like this, and they're the poorer for it.

Ponita said...

Didn't get that show here when I was a kid....

I think Dougal is a Dandy Dinmont terrier...

That cake site is a hoot! I've been there before.

Oh Hai MJ!

Oh Hai XL!

Jimmy Bastard said...

Ermintrude... she... uptight cow..

yeah, it all fits.

Whirlochre said...

I never got Dougal — though I did have chicken pox.

Sorry to diss your hero...

KAZ said...

I just love your minimalist style meme.
Please congratulate your cat.

Dave said...

How odd. This is very similar to a tag I received yesterday, and have posted today, except mine required 7 odd things about me.

Jane P said...

I'm going away for a few days. Just wanted to come here to thank you for your concern. x

Polly said...

Your cat talks! Lucky you... I wonder what you guys talk about

eroswings said...

I like talking to cats, too; I also like to play with them, and pet them gently while they make pleasing, satisfied sounds.

Betty said...

Oh, I always thought Rosalie was cool. She was fairly enigmatic and only used to have cameos on Roundabout every few months. It's the air of mystery.

scarlet-blue said...

I have picked up a new pair of specs today. They are Ted Baker and I'm well chuffed, plus I can now see.

Mr Bananas: I think Ermintrude is lovely... and she was very forward and experimental. For a cow.

Eryl: I might trying icing an Artic roll from Iceland and see if I can make my own Dougal. We could have a Dougal competition. I suspect that you would win!!!

Mr XL: How about you do 'The 6 most embarrassing things you've ever done' meme? I might do it too...

Pat: Eric had a lovely storytellers voice. I also used to love Johnny Morris on Animal Magic... this might explain why I spent so much time trying to get my dog to talk...

Kev: I think the children of today are deprived. It's all Hollyoaks and Bratz these days.

Ponita: Yep, the cake site is a hoot.. did you see the pink Birthday cake? It was really pretty but the spelling had gone wrong... someone must have been gutted. Probably still tasted good.

Mr Jimmy: I'm pleased that it fits. Not so good if it's loose and baggy.

Mr Whirly: You never got Dougal!!!!??? We will talk later...

Kaz: My cat has very good taste. She'll only eat Sheba.

Dave: I will be along shortly to see how odd you are... only seven?

Jane: I hope you get better soon and I hope that there is nothing to worry about. I'll pop over in a bit.

Polly: The Cat is a smartypants. She likes Desperate Housewives and Grand Designs... she also has an interesting opinion on the Fluxus art movement... not sure where she got that from though...

Mr Swings: If there is such a thing as reincarnation, then I'll choose to come back as a cat... and you can be my owner..

Betty: I used to get really excited if Rosalie and Paul were in an episode! Sadly I can't find one on Youtube.

CyberPete said...

I love the Magic Roundabout. Will do this once I've settled in and got my Internet back.

xl said...

Thank you Miss Scarlet! Will do the amended meme for next week's post.

Madame DeFarge said...

I think my role model was Florence. Suitably uptight and sensible. Stayed with me all my life.

Donn Coppens said...

You had to say Cake around MJ eh?

My Dachshund Fritz could sprechen but only if I was on mushrooms and he was moochin' beer from my friends.

True story.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Ah, Ermintrude the Cow playing drums, that's a prize Magic Roundabout moment! I also taught my cat to talk, but luckily only I could understand it as it turned into a sweary little f*****r.

Mrs Pouncer said...

I actually do the voices for my dogs. Neighbours hail me as the Mabel Constandouros of the Thames Valley. This has NOTHING to do with the multiple-personality disorder which lay undiagnosed for so long within my glamorous psyche. No, the blame lies with Johnnie Morris, pure and simple.

I am not up early. I haven't been to bed yet.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Have you moved now? What's happening with the Green Elf Shorts?

Mr XL: I shall look forward to it.

Madame D: Tsk! I think you often let your hair down if Mr Jimmy is to be believed, but then again he says that I have big feet, and that isn't true.

Mr Coppens: Indeed! We shall compare notes at a later date...

Gadj: It's very sad when they develop Tourette's. I don't know, perhaps counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy could help your cat?

Mrs P: What have you been doing all night?!!
I often think Johnnie Morris is to blame for lots of things. He gave me huge expectations of the zoo. I thought all animals wanted a cuddle and a chat. I nearly lost a finger because of him. I still have the scar and it doesn't bend properly.

Mrs Pouncer said...

I am not entirely SURE what I have been doing, but I FEEL as if I have spent the entire night licking Bulgarian postage stamps.

Time for a large stiff one now, I think.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I think Mrs. P. has been in the company of the desert shrdlu.

Emerson Marks said...

That one on the springs, what's his name? Zebedy - he used to scare the **** out of me.

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs P: Are Bulgarian postage stamps stronger than British stamps? I must try.

Kev: Did you mean dessert sherry?

Mr Marks: Oh, Zebedee was a sweetie! And it's okay to swear here... well, as long as you don't go too mad...

Crabtree said...

Ouf!! I escaped it beautiful a cat that does not understand the French!!!!

scarlet-blue said...

Crabtree: Erm.. yes her French is as bad as mine and she hasn't yet got the hang of google translator... apologies!

Erm .. oui son fran├žais est aussi mauvais que le mien, et elle n'a pas encore eu le coup de google translator ... des excuses!

mutleythedog said...

I will do it!! Sorry I was busy writing....

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutts: i thought you were out gamboling in the sunshine...
Sx

mutleythedog said...

I was out sunning me bits... also I wrote a new short story and me short story blog... I have a bit more time now thankfully...

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Mutts: I shall come and read...

laughingwolf said...

that clip is weird... no tracks or roads, yet they go all over the place

Che said...

Aye, well, my role model was the dopey rabbit. Dylan ?
That whole dopey rabbit thing didn't work out, somehow.

I'd sue the bastards, but they're all dead now.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Wolf: I think they do it with magnets...

Mr Scotts: I loved Dylan... but he probably wasn't the best role model...
