What to wear on a Blog Meet

We had arranged to meet by the third haystack on the right in a field just off the A30 at five minutes past midnight. What could be simpler? So that we would recognise each other Dave was to wear his purple smoking jacket, a pink carnation and his dog collar [I like a man in a uniform]. I suggested that he also wore trousers or shorts. I was to be attired in a suitable outfit - my favourite ditsy print red rubber play suit teamed with Bordello red patent stilettos and black stockings. You could say that I was fully girded for his much lauded sermon on the mount. We had both been looking forward to our blog meet for weeks; intense comment flirtation within our boxes had heightened and aroused our expectations - we were like two lively Labradors ready to be unleashed - both fevered with excitement at the prospect of our imminent union. But the best laid plans often go awry; how was I to know that on the same night that Dave and I had arranged to meet that a vicars and tarts party would be in full swing by the third haystack on the right in a field just off the A30....
I wonder if Dave has any pictures?

"I am still feeling a little poorly"

Oh. I was going to make a comment about a roll in the hay, but will not now.

[fluffs pillows for Miss Scarlet]

Please get better!

TechnoBabe said...

Oh shoot, you were all decked out too. Your outfit sounds like the perfect first time to meet wear. Why do vicars and tarts get first choice anyway?

Sausage Fingers said...

The chicken soup is on the stove, feel better. Thanks for the Fratellis link, I am dancing alone at work and looking stange. Oh well...

Clyde said...

Oh, that wasn't you in the Nun's habit---
I guess I owe Sister Scarlet Marie a wee apology

savannah said...

xoxoxoxoxox feel better soonest, sugar!

Dave said...

It's only hay fever.

Photographs of our blog-meet are available, in a plain brown envelope. Send me large amounts of cash.

Are there photos of Dave in the doggie position?

dangerouswriter said...

WOW Scarlet, you two must have looked stunning! Summer is the right time for bloggers' meetings -I met 2 last year and rather than about my outfit, I worried about my hair!- And it all went great!

This summer I have 2 meetings too, and now you've made me wonder about my outfit... maybe I should look for my black stockings and red stilettoes too...

I presume it went fine, and I hope you get better soon!

Leni. ;)

Pat said...

Dave would seem to be a blogaholic.
What an exciting meet - so very different to my own although they - so far - have been exceedingly pleasureable.
You obviously threw caution to the winds. After midnight indeed! And red rubber in this humidity. What were you thinking of?

kyknoord said...

Find any needles?

the eternal worrier: said...

In a field off the A30... I think I may have been there once in the past. Wondered where you'd got to.

Inexplicable DeVice said...

Oh, so that's what was going on. Broom stalled on the way over and we nearly landed on a rather large but sparsely dressed chaplain. It was only because we got caught in the knicker elastic of some tart that we managed to twang back up into the night sky!

I hope your sleep has banished the poorlyness.

Happy Frog and I said...

Love that song! Hope you feel better soon. x

Kevin Musgrove said...

How very brave. I hope Dave left word as to where he'd gone, just in case you'd turned out to be in the white slave trade (a boy can't be too careful these days).

I've had one blog meet, last autumn. I wore a copy of the People's Friend. Lizzie, being dead practical and cautious, wore a large coach party.

nick said...

I have the photos of your torrid and sultry encounter. I will release them unless you pay me a large sum of money. Meet me outside the Dog and Duck, Exeter High Street, at noon tomorrow. And don't try any funny business.

63mago said...

This third haystack on the right is a busy place afte all.

wendy house said...

But I can't tell from you ost whether Dave actually came or not.

wendy house said...

Your Post

63mago said...

I'm sure he came all over the place. Like vicars and such ...

nick said...

Wendy, he was there, I have the photos. They're not pretty.

LL Cool Joe said...

Yeah and I was the dj behind the haystack. Dave was with me, didn't you know?

Joanna Cake said...

Get Well Soon, Mrs... It's always fun to hear about bloggers attempting to meet up :)

Princess said...

A Blogger meet?
Anything like a swap meet?
I have lots of junk to exchange...
Feel better soon Scarlet we miss you....

nick said...

You weren't at the Dog and Duck. Now you're in real trouble.

Dave said...

If what my GP has just told me is correct, Scarlet may well be in trouble. Seems that rubber dress wasn't as practical as we thought.

Still, a dose of penicillin should clear it up.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I should have done my research beforehand.

Scarlet Blue said...

Apologies for not replying individually, I am almost completely recovered. It may have been hay-fever; the farmers are harvesting their crops so this might have caused my snivels.
Anyhow, I will send Dave along to the Retrospace blog - thankyou, Kev for the link - MJ may also find this link useful.
Mr Mags - what a disgraceful comment!! Go and wash your typing fingers immediately. I believe you have been conferring with Nick who is still languishing in the Duck and Duck.
Wendy raises an interesting question: did I or did I not meet Dave. This is to remain a mystery that will go down in the annals of blogging mythology... it may also become the eighth wonder of the world.

Many thanks for all your kindly comments.

Scarlet Blue said...

...or was it the Dog and Rabbit... you see, I'm hopeless at finding pubs...
Sx

MJ said...

We're missing you Miss Scarlet.

Retrospace is a site I visit from time to time which won't surprise you. It's a goodie.

This just in...Beast is wearing a girdle!

Scarlet Blue said...

I miss read it as griddle... which knowing Mr Beastie is a possibility though.
Sx

MJ said...

Well, he does have that waffling on his buttocks.

Scarlet Blue said...

...he does indeed. He has so much waffling that we could play noughts and crosses on his rump.
Sx

63mago said...

The day I do not find a pub ... I mean even after the battle of Armageddon people will gather and have a beer; in the Star&Crown as good as in the Glowing Skull.

Mitzi said...

I love dogging too, it gives you a thrill like no other. However, I do try to avoid August and September as those pesky thunder flies from the corn fields get EVERYWHERE.

Eryl Shields said...

It's far too chilly for stockings, no wonder you're poorly. Still, one has to keep up appearances. Hope you feel better soon, X

63mago said...

Mitzi, After all. You got me now.

Macy said...

Forsooth Scarlet! As if there's a tarts and vicars party along the A30 corridor that you DIDN'T know about!

EmmaK said...

let's cut to the chase here - can we see Dave's pictures - you can blur out any incriminating protruberences

Madame DeFarge said...

If I'd known you were going to hide in giant haystacks, I'd have asked you to look for big daddy.

CyberPete said...

As long as it didn't end up like in that dreadful Gaga video Alejandro.

Hope you feel better soon.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Mags: ...can still wear my ditsy print red rubber playsuit after the battle of Armageddon?

Mitzi: Funny you should mention the flies...I've been playing merry with a bottle of dettox all weekend...

Eryl: Too chilly? Ahhh... you are up north.

Mr Mags: Is there a new romance that I should know about?

Macy: True! Poor Dave... lamb to the slaughter...

Emmak: All Dave's pics are blurry, smudged or the products of severe camera shake. He should really put his camera down when he's busy.

Madame D: ...I can assure you that there was plenty of wrestling going on in the field just off the A30... and I was right to wear the rubber playsuit.

Pete: Thank you, sweetie! I am recovered and I always avoid Gaga videos.

Sxxx
