Not About Bushes

For the time being I don't want to look at the dratted white flag when I come to my blog but I have bugger all to write about. Recent popular subjects have included slugs [slugs score very highly on this blog it seems], Smeg fridge freezers and Kent bashing. Bushes have been popular but I think I may have overworked my bush...?
Joan Collins was on the telly last night, doing her bit to give British women a shot of glamour.... so I'll throw her into the mix... she's always good value for money...



Anyhow... that's better than looking at the dratted white flag. And many thanks for all of your kind and supportive comments.

Scarlet-Blue said...

zIggI: I'm second!
And I haven't actually watched the Youtube yet...!

"Bushes have been popular"

Personally, I think this is always a topic worth exploring.

wv: topiary (a sign perhaps?)

fairyhedgehog said...

Bushes I can understand but slugs? Really?

wv: corkers (Is google targetting these, like their ads?)

Hi Scarlet. First time commentor, big time admirer. Admire your freedom, frankness and self-expression. You inspire me. Hope the catfight eased a bit of what ails. Geez, Joan Collins looks young ...

xoxoxox thinking of you, sugar!

You don't have to watch Dynasty
To have an attitude.


Prince

I'm just sayin'.

Rog said...

Krystle came out on top with the Pink Boa. Most entertaining!

Dave said...

I was very close to the adorable Scarlet today. She was eating Brussel Sprouts. After a while the smell became rather overpowering.

So unlike the Scarlet we know and love.

Clyde said...

Ah, we always like a bush story.
And a nice big slug can always be entertaining for the girls.
But there is always something in the paper, on the TV.

Maybe you could take your bush out onto the streets and get some comments

Clyde said...

Oh, and as per the instructions above---
one big sucky X

MJ said...

Wait 'til CyberPete sees this!!!

MJ said...

Oh, and I need one of those mannequin arms for when you lot misbehave.

Eryl Shields said...

Blimey, that took me back, I particularly liked the music.

I believe that some bushes respond well to overworking, so don't worry on that score.

Sorry to hear you are under the weather: feed the black dog cream crackers, that should teach him, and he'll get so fat he won't be able to bother you. X

Hot Damn Scarlet!

That definitely beats a White Flag! Totally unexpected. I had no idea that this was an action scene.

That gave me a few chuckles.

For a woman whose body tissue must almost certainly have turned to fungus, J.C. is looking remarkably sprightly. But, as it said in one newspaper review I read, "she's no Gok". Thank f*ck for that.

KAZ said...

Phew - I enjoyed that - but I hoped it would end in sex.

BEAST said...

How very undignified.A national treasure like Joan being mauled by an American Amazon. You never used to get that sort of behaviour on Crossroads

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr XL: I suspect you are fibbing about the WV??

Fairyhedgehog: Seems that the random algorithms are getting even less random?

Solidgold: Hello and Welcome! I looked at the fight after I posted... I didn't realise it was so violent. Thank goodness for the black opaque tights that's all I can say!

Savvy: And you, I'll be doing the rounds later.

Mr Banish: I actually used to be more of a Dallas girl... all of it - gratuitous make believe and great fun.

Rog: Yes, it was a bit of a surprise... I wonder if there is a Dynasty box set I could invest in, I missed some of these classic scenes the first time round.

Dave: Goodness me! I spray a fine mist of Issey Miyake over myself... but I'm sure Scarlet smelt wonderful... for a cow...

Clyde: I'm sure that flaunting my bush on the streets would raise a few comments and eyebrows... actually I live in a village and that sort of behaviour isn't exactly rare.
Sucky kiss back.

MJ: Yep, I think Pete will like this one and I'm sure Joan would lend a hand... I think she's scarier than the Polka Dot Queen?

Eryl: Good idea about the dog! He's been getting too much of his own way lately and I've been very lapse on discipline. I'll get him fat and put him on a short leash.

Mr U: Yes, I agree, much better than a white flag and the scene surprised me too - I reckon they had fun making it.

Mr Whirly: Did you see it? It was quite bizarre. At least Joan didn't grapple with any bangers though.

Kaz: Knowing Youtube there is probably a version out there that ends just like that!

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Beastie: You should watch Corrie... it's 90% street fighting in terry towelling bathrobes and fluffy slippers. And let's not get started on 'Enders.

Kerrie said...

I love the bit where she hits her with the manequins arm when surely one of her shoulder pads would have been more effective and not a bush in site.

Lulu LaBonne said...

Lovely, nice bit of fighting before dinner!

Love

Scarlet-Blue said...

Kerrie: You've changed!
It was all a bit of a surprise when it kicked off... odd how they managed to keep their wigs on.

Lulu: I saw it for breakfast - quite an entertaining way to start the day!

Jimmy Bastard said...

If I'm honest, I'm not so much interested in the subject today, just as long as your ok and smiling again.

Kevin Musgrove said...

Wasn't there a picture doing the rounds of you in your Dynasty period? I seem to remember a lot of shoulder pads and ginger hair.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Jimmy: Thanks Jimmy... It's lovely having you back.

Kev: You must be mixing me up with Nicole Kidman... an easy mistake.

mapstew said...

I'm not saying the area where I grew up was common, but back then a lot of the kids were called Krystal, and Alexis, and Sammy-Jo, and Pocahontas! Ok, there was only ONE kid called Sammy-Jo!

xxx and an extra x just because!

WV is 'sawness'. Is that what someone from Corrie feels if they get a thump!

eroswings said...

It's the Dynasty Finale!

Somewhere, drag princesses are practicing these very moves for the day they become queens!

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Maps: Now all the kids are called Tiffany and Britney, and Alexis sounds quite upmarket.

Mr Swings: I'll try to find the Youtube...

Kerrie said...

It took me a minute realise that you were referring to my photo and not my love of cat fights.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Kerrie: Apologies!
I love a good twirl. Chocolate or otherwise.

Mitzi said...

We call it "Dinnerstee" up north. I can see Joan in Corrie, propping up the bar at the Rovers, adding a touch of glamour to the dreary lives of Weatherfield, she could be a love interest for Ken, he's already had Sable.

Gadjo Dilo said...

Mmm, I reckon our Joanie will still look glam even when she's six foot under. But notice that you can't see her face during much of that catfight, and the body language is a dead give away - it's well-known stunt-double Barry "Slugger" O'Riley.

Dr Maroon said...

I can never see the word "bush" without remembering being caught in the bushes at school with a couple of hot knitting patterns. Well you know what it's like; 14 year old boys just cant leave it alone. I could never get enough double knit action. Still can't. The headmistress had a fawn Aran sweater over her shoulders, big cably thing, the filthy slut. Oh she wanted it, the dirty cow.

Ax.

Leah said...

I've never actually seen that iconic scene! It's a doozy! I loved it.

Borah said...

"I'm very much a woman..."

Oh, those dialogues! If only people talked like that for real, the world would be such a literary place! and the cat-fight, if only people fought like that for real, the world would be such a pretty place!

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mitzi: Oh that would be wonderful - Joan could work in the Kabin with Norris - imagine the run ins she'd have with Liz and Deirdre? And I know that Joan could work an asymmetrical hemline with a Fair Isle tank top.

Gadj: I still think it's remarkable that their wigs stayed on... they made sure there was no hair pulling...

Dr Maroon: It's warmer down south and the lads here swapped free sewing patterns for Barbie, in particular they liked the the pull-on elastic top peasant blouse. Tight in the right places.
P.S - I think I've sussed out the ducks - it only took 4 months!

Leah: I'd heard about this scene but I'd never seen it. I can now fully understand why Dynasty became compulsive viewing for some people.

Borah: I might try it in real life... the next time somebody rings me up trying to get me to switch my energy provider I'm going to tell them that 'I'm very much a woman'... I will report back.

Dave said...

When are we going to have a blog-meet? With crumpet...

Beverly Hamilton Wenham said...

Ok ,not to change the subject, (and by the way Hi!). I went to the movies last week to see Surrogates the Bruce Willis movie, set in the year 2049 or something like that and what do I see in Bruce's very mod apartment, but a SMEG fridge!!! I practically jumped up right there and shouted "Scarlet's Ice box", right there in the theater. Not that anyone would have minded. The movie wasn't very good. But the fridge did look great.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Dave: I think Blogger should hold Blogger parties, then we could all meet.

Beverley: Thank you! The Smeg fridge freezer was feeling a little left out in the cold.
Are you back? Oh, and I'll give the film a miss then!

Madame DeFarge said...

Vexillology - study of flags. Just wanted to add to the sum of the world's knowledge.

Anyway, I missed out on Dynasty, due to being an intellectually superior being when it was on. I now feel somewhat deprived by the experience.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Madame D: I saw some of the earlier episodes of Dynasty... but kind of gave up when the aliens abducted Fallon... or did I dream that?
I loved Dallas.

Roses said...

I avoid all soaps for the simple fact, I have quite enough frustrating drama in my life.

But I did want to say:

Big hugs!

mago said...

No way, can't imagine anything that would make me click on this youtube. Gewitterziegen. And I guess they are more bouncing than swingling ...

Liam said...

Hey Scarlet. Where art thou?

Pat said...

I'm a fan of Joanie's but she doesn't always get it right. No-one who isn't in Oliver should ever be seen dead in a baker boy hat.
And ladies of a certain age should not tuck their top in their trousers.

Scarlet-Blue said...

Roses: I'm an awful soap addict - Corrie is really going to hot up this week... and Monday nights are bath nights.

Mr Mags: Some time in the near future I'm going to use 'swingling' in a post - in you don't mind? It's got to be done and is a fab word.

Liam: I'm still here, slightly deflated, but the footpump is doing its job.
Actually, that's what I need - a footpump attendent?!

Pat: I haven't tucked for years... but I think this is due to my tops not reaching my waistband.

MJ said...

Over here in The Colonies, Liz and Lloyd have just shared their first kiss.

It is Boxing Day-ish from LAST year just now being shown.

Scarlet-Blue said...

MJ: Poor Lloyd... he's... I'll shut up... but I'm feeling sorry for him!

mago said...

Why should I mind? At least the words belong to everybody.
Go, Scarlet, and Write what needs to be written! Whoa, the ghost of Heston touched me ...

WV: bresti (!)

Scarlet-Blue said...

Mr Mags: I did indeed draft a post that contained the word 'swingling'... I will save it for a special occasion.
