Sedna says:

Land of the silver birch,
Home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose
Wanders at will.
Blue lake and rocky shore
I will return once more
Boom diddy eye dye
Boom diddy eye dye
Boom diddy eye dye
Boom.

Are we all set? Are the provisions ready and the blankets clean?

12th Feb 2007, 20:58

Sedna says:

The Canadian sun fixes automatically upon musickal instrumentation and gloweth.

12th Feb 2007, 20:58

Alfie says:

I *did* figure some shoppery was afoot.

12th Feb 2007, 21:01

Sedna says:

12th Feb 2007, 21:05

Sedna says:

*looks relieved

Have you got the blankets, I say again? I want the one with spots.

12th Feb 2007, 21:05

frida says:

I saw it and knew what had to be done

12th Feb 2007, 21:06

frida says:

you have the spotty one and i'll have the one with cute cuddly bears on it.

12th Feb 2007, 21:07

Sedna says:

*secretly wonders if should have chosen one with bears
*looks closely
*alarmed

There's something not quite right about those bears.

12th Feb 2007, 21:08

frida says:

*sees sedna staring and clutches blanket closer, is not giving it up without fight

12th Feb 2007, 21:10

Sedna says:

Frida, you know those Indian cloths with mirrors sewn in?

12th Feb 2007, 21:11

frida says:

Oh yes, loves em,
*gets out beads

12th Feb 2007, 21:12

Sedna says:

And you see how the bears on your blanket appear to be steadily growing bigger?

12th Feb 2007, 21:13

frida says:

Now you come to mention it , it does seem to be getting heavier.

12th Feb 2007, 21:14

Sedna says:

*ponders
*glances up and over frida's shoulder in agitation

Might we do well to head on the Harbour Station now?

12th Feb 2007, 21:17

freda says:

*laughs lots at something over there.
where are we going ?
*watches bears getting closer

12th Feb 2007, 21:18

frida says:

*pulls self togather as beginning of adventure gets off to wobbly start.:0)
Harbour Station it is then.
*hopes it's not far.

12th Feb 2007, 21:20

Sedna says:

How shall we get there? I've got this rather nice Norse sled but it needs huskies or something to pull it.

12th Feb 2007, 21:21

frida says:

*looks around for something with sled pulling capabilities.

12th Feb 2007, 21:24

frida says:

There are 2 caribou lurking over there with nothing better to do

12th Feb 2007, 21:25

frida says:

*will be glad when whole Canadian tour/ theme is over as knows very little of Canadian things.

12th Feb 2007, 21:26

Sedna says:

You're right! We'll mount them and then lasso and tame the bears!

12th Feb 2007, 21:28

frida says:

*hopes caribou knows way to Harbour Station, sounds like acold place and is glad of three jumpers and six pairs of trousers

12th Feb 2007, 21:28

frida says:

*gives Sedna sideways glance due to caribou mounting keeness ?
and we need tame bears because??

12th Feb 2007, 21:31

Sedna says:

To... pull the sled...?

12th Feb 2007, 21:42

frida says:

Ah yes , the sled,
*worries for fate of caribou.

12th Feb 2007, 21:44

frida says:

*secretly wishes tour had taken in warmer coutry with nice beaches and palm trees and drinks on the terrace at dusk.

12th Feb 2007, 21:46

Sedna says:

Well if YOU'VE got any better ideas!

12th Feb 2007, 21:46

frida says:

am having hard enough time typing without spelling mistakes without having to plot also :0)
*didn't realise how big caribou were until up close.

12th Feb 2007, 21:48

frida says:

*wal;ks into kitchen for snack and suddenly realises how last comment could easily be misconstrued

12th Feb 2007, 21:49

Sedna says:

*comforts frida with cosy mirror blanket and thoughts of only one more day in the land of the silver birch before a week of freedom and lostness when we can go to a nice sparkly island paradise
*sniggers at caribou comment

Ready to mount?

*sniggers

12th Feb 2007, 21:53

Winnie Pegg says:

*wanders in

Um, hello...

12th Feb 2007, 22:03

Sedna says:

We can go there tonight!

12th Feb 2007, 22:04

Sedna says:

Oh, hello there ma'am. Are you the keeper of these meese? Er... caribou?

12th Feb 2007, 22:06

Winnie Pegg says:

I'm a bear trainer, but I can't do it without a chair. If you had a chair, well that would be grand.

DO you have a chair, incidentally?

12th Feb 2007, 22:07

Sedna says:

No. I have a spotty blanket to sit on, if it helps... We used to have a marvellous all purpose knob but it got lost in the Great Disintegration.

12th Feb 2007, 22:12

frida says:

I have achair but one leg is shorter than the others for reasons I cannot disclose

12th Feb 2007, 22:13

Winnie Pegg says:

Or even a stool, or perhaps a tricycle?

12th Feb 2007, 22:13

Winnie Pegg says:

Whoops, too slow. No, a blanket won't do. The knob sounds interesting though, are you sure it's gone?

12th Feb 2007, 22:14

Sedna says:

Oh! The wobbly chair! Of course, how could I forget?!

12th Feb 2007, 22:14

frida says:

Don't mention the wobbly chair.

It's all in the past now, best forgotten you know.

12th Feb 2007, 22:19

Winnie Pegg says:

*looks curious

Tell me the mysteries of the chair. Quickly before the bears advance.

12th Feb 2007, 22:21

Winnie Pegg says:

Fine. I shall just have to improvise.

*grabs a caribou and wields by the antlers

BACK! BACK YE BEARISH FIENDS!

This could take a while. Feel free to feat upon these Canadian brownies while I tame.

12th Feb 2007, 22:26

frida says:

*needs to sleep and get ready for adventure tomorrow as new one came as some suprise:0)
*sniggers and wonders
*ponders also and hopes to sneer at some point too.

12th Feb 2007, 22:29

Sedna says:

*munches brownie cheerfully

Oh, it's shaped like a bear, how adorable!

*sings ancient Norse beartaming song

When yer want ter tame a bear
(VILLAGE A-HO-HO)
Yer gonna need a decent chair
(PILLAGE AHOY)
When yer want ter tame a grizzly
(VILLAGE A-HO-HO)
Yer gonna need a decent stick
(PILLAGE AHOY)
When yer want ter tame a bear
(VILLAGE A-HO-HO)
Yer gotta beat it fair and square
(PILLAGE AHOY)
When yer want to tame a polar
(VILLAGE A-HO-HO)
Be as steadfast as a brick
(PILLAGE AHOY)

Steadfast as a brick with a pillage-and-a-ho
Steadfast as a brick with a row-boys-row
Tame a bear and have no fear
Tame a bear and shed no tear
Steadfast as a brick with a villages-a-ho.

12th Feb 2007, 22:31

Winnie Pegg says:

*hears song with some surprise
*approves, once over initial shock of Norse beartaming song's existence

12th Feb 2007, 22:33

frida says:

*claps along in time.
*vows to nominate Sedna for Folk singer of the Year 2008.

12th Feb 2007, 22:35

frida says:

*assumes bricks are lego .

12th Feb 2007, 22:35

Winnie Pegg says:

*thinks those awards are all a pile of rubbish anyway but secretly agrees

12th Feb 2007, 22:36

Sedna says:

Why thank you frida!
But of course, there is no other kind of brick in Norseland. I've been known to use one as a stopper for my norsebleed in times past.

12th Feb 2007, 22:37

frida says:

*sets about building shelter for the night with lego,
*is glad of extra clothing as floor bobbles are uncomfortable to sleep on

12th Feb 2007, 22:40

Winnie Pegg says:

Will it be a bearproof igloo?

12th Feb 2007, 22:41

frida says:

Was kind of hoping bears would be inside to help keep us warm.
So yes, it should keep them in.

12th Feb 2007, 22:42

Winnie Pegg says:

Taming is a process that is very long and VERY hard.

*sniggers

Hey, where did Sedna go?

12th Feb 2007, 22:56

Winnie Pegg says:

*worries about bear looking fatter than before

12th Feb 2007, 22:58

frida says:

*feet sticking out of bears mouth being dead give away

12th Feb 2007, 23:02

Winnie Pegg says:

Uh-oh... Luckily one of these bears can swallow a person whole and something tells me that being dead already she'll pass through the system without too much damage...

12th Feb 2007, 23:05

frida says:

what a stroke of luck

12th Feb 2007, 23:12

Winnie Pegg says:

It's the bear I'm worried about most of all, if she gets stuck inside his rectum it'll make the taming process even longer and harder.

12th Feb 2007, 23:18

frida says:

If she gets stuck in his rectum I think training will be the last thing on his mind.
*wonders wether bear would like epidural.
*greases up shoulder length rubber gloves.

12th Feb 2007, 23:28

frida says:

oh c**p, it wasn't a dream, we did do it.

13th Feb 2007, 09:28

Sedna says:

*slips out the other end
*looks disgusted
*rolls around in snowslush to get clean

GREAT taming, Winnie, really good job you did there. Lucky I was wearing my protective Lego anti-bile bodywarmer.

13th Feb 2007, 12:16

Sedna says:

*wonders if the White Hare is in fact a Canadian Arctic Snowshoe Hare.
*ponders setting a lynx on her

13th Feb 2007, 12:27

Winnie Pegg says:

Great taming? Why yes it is. If you look to your left, you'll see that the bears are now harnessed to the sledge and singing "O Carolina" in four-part harmony whilst knitting mittens.

13th Feb 2007, 12:38

Sedna says:

Shame we don't have to be in Canadia any more, isn't it.

13th Feb 2007, 12:40

Winnie Pegg says:

Oh. Yes :( Where shall we go?
*waits for frida to decide

13th Feb 2007, 12:48

frida says:

*wonders why ,if whoever is free of bear (forgotten other name) , am still sat in snow with arm halfway up bears arse.

13th Feb 2007, 12:50

frida says:

*is still not sure after all this time which words on moblog merit use of ******''s :0)

13th Feb 2007, 12:51

frida says:

*is amused by fact that ********* protects the innocent from naughty letters such as u, c, k and f.
*the power of * is immense
*is in awe of *

13th Feb 2007, 12:54

Winnie Pegg says:

There was talk of an island paradise, sounds interesting.

13th Feb 2007, 12:55

frida says:

*waits for inspiration to descend.
*changes cd in hope of same

13th Feb 2007, 12:57

frida says:

Always happens in school hols, brain goes into shut down mode. :0)

13th Feb 2007, 12:57

Winnie Pegg says:

*thinks Sedna must be in huff regarding being sha-la-laed in the woods
*waits for much more pleasant frida instead

13th Feb 2007, 12:58

frida says:

13th Feb 2007, 13:00

frida says:

.................and dances round kitchen like thing possessed

13th Feb 2007, 13:02

frida says:

sorry about the delay, it's just the standard of c**p I write don't come easy and am waiting for stupidity to kick in and we'll be off again. I'm not a machine and can't just switch the drivvle on you know. I am an artiste you know.
:0) :0):00

13th Feb 2007, 13:27

frida says:

apart from anything else ,my homemade chicken soup is on the hob cooking and has just gone to defcon 4 and rising

13th Feb 2007, 13:29

frida says:

plus there's the whole thing of talking to yourself that has to be resolved.

13th Feb 2007, 13:31

frida says:

and then there's the whole, leave moblog ,come to mire *goes to mire , ooo lets go back to moblog,thing, trudging backwards and forwards through mud with wellies and a zimmer frame to contend with maybe some folks idea of fun but it sure aint mine, no sireee bob.
*peers into distance to look for BT van approaching a house in Exeter

13th Feb 2007, 13:37

frida says:

*looks up and wishes had attached paper delivery bag to sexy award winning folk fiddler

13th Feb 2007, 13:39

frida says:

*sees exclusion zone reach unprecedented area, sees also banks of spotlights, 20ft razor wire fence and heavily armed guards with attack trained Jack Russells.

13th Feb 2007, 13:42

frida says:

I ain't lookin' for prayers or pity
I ain't comin' round searchin for a crutch
I just want someone to talk to
And a little of that human touch
Just a little of that human touch

13th Feb 2007, 13:50

frida says:

well you asked for it........ and my finger is hovering on the repeat button ;0)

I heard her in the valley,
I heard her in the dead of night.
The warning of a white hare
Her eyes burning bright.

Careful you don`t catch her
Give her right of way.
For she will look upon you,
And steal your soul away

For the white hare is calling,
She's dancing in the night.
She'll be out `til the morning light.

Out upon the heather
A shadow came onto me.
Her hair was hanging over,
Her face I could not see.

She ran behind the rocks,
I heard the hounds cry,
The image of a woman
With head she held up high.

For the white hare is calling,
She’s dancing in the night.
She'll be out `til the morning
With her eyes burning bright.
The white hare is calling you.

If you go hunting,
Calling out your prey,
If you see a fair maid,
Her hair an ash and grey,

Careful you don`t catch her,
Give her right of way,
For she will look upon you,
And steal your soul away

For the white hare is calling,
She's dancing in the night.
She'll be out `til the morning,
With her eyes burning bright.
The white hare is calling you.

You can her her calling every night

You can her her calling every night
You can her her calling……


13th Feb 2007, 13:52

frida says:

2 hours is about right.
*thinks, BT thing was just ruse to go out and do some shopping.
*bets winnie bago and sedna are trying things on in top shop and *sniggering about leaving me stuck here on own.
*wonders if we are still in Canada or floating about randomly waiting for location to depart from.

13th Feb 2007, 15:26

frida says:

*wanders over there to look in hat shop window,
something in purple and yellow with ear flaps I fancy.

13th Feb 2007, 16:35

Sedna says:

*missed a great deal of jabberment and is disconsolate

13th Feb 2007, 17:41

frida says:

I'm sure you will more than make up for it . :0)

13th Feb 2007, 20:16

frida says:

oi, sedna I can see you lurking on the edge of the mire, get back here at once :0)

13th Feb 2007, 23:22

Sedna says:

*looks abashed
*returns

My apologies, I got distracted by the SLAGs.

14th Feb 2007, 00:21

frida says:

disadvanteges , always and forever.

14th Feb 2007, 00:35

trucklehump says:

you beautiful bunch of fruitcakes i'm going to have to go to bed dreaming of beavers now...

**zzzz

14th Feb 2007, 01:22

frida says:

*awaits to hear of trucklehump's nocturnal beaver exploits.

*unless of course trucklehump is a passing migrant.

*yawns, winds up yam powered music extrapolater and sits cross legged in corner waiting for sedna.

14th Feb 2007, 09:16

trucklehump says:

So lying there with cocoa and blankets, the cat purring like a demented tractor and there was this beaver, right, and the beaver's name was ahem Bertie* and well the dream channel went a bit wonky at that point and it was a bit hard to see exactly what Bertie was up to. Apparently there was a wedge of something principally made from sultanas and brandy astuck in the dream tube.
*made up name to protect innocent folk singers

14th Feb 2007, 13:20

Sedna says:

Bertie's name is made up to protect me?

Wait, I'm not that innocent. You must mean someone else. Fancy a cuppa, truckle?

14th Feb 2007, 14:27

trucklehump says:

A cuppa? A realll cuppa? What with mighty hot water and bits of biscuit crumb and everthing?
*Ah yeeess... plz!

14th Feb 2007, 15:06

Sedna says:

But of course :D Do you take sugar with your crumbs?

14th Feb 2007, 15:09

trucklehump says:

Thank you, no on the sugar, it makes me dance like a loony. So how not innocent? I mean, I thought they were all innocent? It sheds a whole new light on the beaver story...

14th Feb 2007, 15:13

Sedna says:

It's hard to stay innocent when you're dead.

You know, it's really annoying when your blood stops pumping. Like my feet weren't big enough in the first place.
*punctures sole with a pin to relieve the pressure

Sorry, that'll stop in time.

14th Feb 2007, 15:17

Sedna says:

Here's your cuppa by the way, sorry for the wait but my feet were REALLY aching.

14th Feb 2007, 15:22

anonymous says:

Really? I see. It must have been all wrong in the version I heard...

You're Innocent when you're dead
When you're dead
You are innocent when you're dead...

*Sups tea and muses the events.

14th Feb 2007, 15:22

trucklehump says:

Hmm lovely cuppa, ta. Sorry was away with the fairies for a moment there, nearly forgot my own name. You get fairies round here you reckon?

14th Feb 2007, 15:25

Sedna says:

Poor Tom, he never stopped waiting did he. No, no innocence here. It's not helped by the fact that I spent a night trapped in a caribou's rectum shortly after my death. I've still got the acid burns where my Lego waistcoat didn't quite cover me. *displays burnt wrist
See?

14th Feb 2007, 15:25

Sedna says:

See how confused I am? It was a bear, not a caribou. Though I imagine they look the same from the inside. Just pink and brown and wibbly.

14th Feb 2007, 15:26

Sedna says:

Like melted Neopolitan ice cream.

14th Feb 2007, 15:27

trucklehump says:

'kin nora. That's a nasty lego rash if ever I saw one. Maybe the caribou had ett something funny.
How do you spell et? eat? ate? aet?

14th Feb 2007, 15:27

trucklehump says:

Always vital to pay attention to the what it is that trying to eat you. Wouldn't want to offend it...

*Goes to the freezer in search of ice cream?

14th Feb 2007, 15:29

trucklehump says:

Haha! Success.
*tucks into a of bowl of slightly dubious homemade kiwi fruit sobert with raspberry yogurt to disguise the flavour of the little hairy bits.

14th Feb 2007, 15:32

frida says:

*wanders back from just to the left of the tree over there, no, not that tree , the slightly bigger one just next to it.
*eyes sedna and trucklehump (i'll never remember these names, have to keep scrolling up to see)and is suspicious as to location of knob.
*must keep eye out for it as thing progresses

14th Feb 2007, 15:34

trucklehump says:

muflhmmp mmmunch oo that bit was cold!

fairly sure hasn't seen the knob but promises to shout if it appears...

14th Feb 2007, 15:38

Sedna says:

I thought sugar made you dance funny truckle? You want to stay off the sorbet, it's bad for a dipathetic... hello again frida, cuppa for you?

14th Feb 2007, 15:39

trucklehump says:

oh s**t is that why it was soooo yummy. boing! oops.

weeee a beaver!

*exits stage left by the big tree, no the other big tree, to chase the beaver and maybe make the most of the sugar rush by learning c mjaor and 3/4 simultaniously.

14th Feb 2007, 15:43

Sedna says:

C major and three quarters sounds like the kind of chord I'd get on my brand new violin. When it arrives.

14th Feb 2007, 15:46

trucklehump says:

*racing back from beaver chasing adventure and then round and round in small sugary circles.
A NEW violin now that's really exciting. oooo. i had mine mended last week and it nearly sounds new and it was cleaned so it shines now too. But a new new one that can play C and threee quarters is really exciting...
*pauses for breath and passes out with general excitement

14th Feb 2007, 15:49

frida says:

well how rude.
*was made to be sworn to secrecy regarding whole new violin thing and now the whole world knows
well , I say the whole world, obviously I mean the 3 of us, I mean, you don't honestly think an one else reads this do you?
*sits down to rest after trudging back from mire AGAIN !!

14th Feb 2007, 15:54

trucklehump says:

one would hope not...
but then one never quite knows what to make of some people. Especially the ones with mirroredy little blankets.
*thanks Sedna profusseively for the lovely cuppa, outstanding biscuit crumbs and all round general gential aura, hopes frida finds her knob in fine working order and cycles off into the unknown. Anyone wanna buya beava?

14th Feb 2007, 15:59

Sedna says:

It was a secret for life, I'm dead now. Anyway, I felt the moblog was deserving of my secret, it's got enough already, one more won't make a difference.

14th Feb 2007, 16:01

frida says:

*wonders if will have to listen to sedna practice new sparkly violin on moblog.
*wonders

14th Feb 2007, 16:02

Sedna says:

I do NOT have genital aura, this is SLANDER!

14th Feb 2007, 16:03

trucklehump says:

just as well no one reads it then...

14th Feb 2007, 16:04

frida says:

what about people with mirror bear blankets ?

14th Feb 2007, 16:18

Sedna says:

Not so sure about that. *waves cheerily to the all-seeing eye of Alfie

14th Feb 2007, 16:19

frida says:

*wants to know now ,
*clutches mirrody bear blanket nervously.

14th Feb 2007, 16:22

Sedna says:

*wraps a big fluffy blanket round frida's shoulders protectively and snarls at anyone attempting to break her brain

14th Feb 2007, 16:27

frida says:

Anyway , can't worry about that now, have got 2 week camping trip to prepare for.
*sniggers, quite a bit .

14th Feb 2007, 16:31

Sedna says:

Where shall we go? Where shall we go?!

14th Feb 2007, 16:36

frida says:

*tries to think where tour goes,
Scotland's always lovely , we must look at the list.

14th Feb 2007, 16:47

Sedna says:

It's Salisbury next. Is there a forest or a pleasant campsite?

14th Feb 2007, 16:51

frida says:

there's amilitary firing range thingy i think,
*wonders if there is still one there

14th Feb 2007, 17:08

14th Feb 2007, 17:45

frida says:

I should sincerely hope not poor woman.
*shivers at thought.

14th Feb 2007, 18:12

Sedna says:

Teehee. Well? Wheels?

14th Feb 2007, 18:38

Sedna says:

I have a plane. We need to go to a Nickel Creek gig. If we spend a while with Chris Thile then the while will become a wheely.

14th Feb 2007, 18:40

Sedna says:

*did of course mean plan, if had a plane then wheels not such a pressing matter

14th Feb 2007, 18:41

frida says:

so you want me to hang around outside in the cold while you have your wicked way with this Thile personage.

*looks back as have forgotten how we are actually getting to gig as it has been one of those days on blog AGAIN

14th Feb 2007, 18:48

Sedna says:

I did say "we". And there will be no wicked ways. Though he is pleasingly tall.
We haven't decided about gig transport, we need WHEELS for the sled.

14th Feb 2007, 18:50

frida says:

Well, there are 2 up there on the bike , will they do for starters

14th Feb 2007, 18:55

Sedna says:

And as Alfie pointed out, they're special wheels. I bet they count for two each. Right! We're set! To SALISBURY!!

14th Feb 2007, 18:57

frida says:

Yahooooooo,
*leaps onto sled,
Mush mush

*spreads arms wide and cries to the heavens above 'I WISH I KNEW HOW TO QUIT YOU'
*spits snow out and gets back on skidoo

14th Feb 2007, 19:56

Faith says:

Ranger, do not for one second think that I forgot you on today of all days ;o)...

Of loving beauty you float with grace.
If only you could hide your face.
Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
This describes everything you are not.
I want to feel your sweet embrace
But don't take that paper bag off of your face.
I love your smile, your face, and your eyes
Damn, I'm good at telling lies!
I see your face when I am dreaming
That's why I always wake up screaming.
My love, you take my breath away.
What have you stepped in to smell this way.
My feelings for you no words can tell,
Except for maybe "go to hell."

frida says:

*while eating wholesome breakfast of bag of aero minty bubbles, ponders
A . Is Faith really returned?
2 . Is it because the current story is a shambles and standards have to be upheld.?
C. Is someone holding a gun to Faith's head?
4. Is it because ,like us ,, Faith now finds it hard to relate to the real world and the people therein ?

Mornin' all.

There's \\quite a bunch of us now , haven't a hope of remembering all the names and will never keep up with woeful typing speed,, :0)

15th Feb 2007, 11:59

trucklehump says:

*ponders whether is glad didn't have minty treat for breakfast but thinks it sounds rather exciting all the same.
*reckons it's fine because as long as noone says anything at more than half hour intervals Frida doesn't have to type very fast and could even work out how to spell tings first if she wanted.
*thinks probably should go and do something more useful but isn't sure what that entails.
*doesn't do anything

15th Feb 2007, 12:27

frida says:

Sedna says:

*looks worried and hastens to wrap mirroredy blanket round Belladonna's head in sexy turban-esque arrangement

15th Feb 2007, 12:55

Belladonna says:

*thanks Sedna
*wonders if will maybe start new fashion craze with turban-esque mirrored blanket head wear
*wonders
*ponders too for good measure

15th Feb 2007, 12:58

Sedna says:

Oooh I do hope so! And you always know when bears are too close when you can see the whites of their teeth in the mirrors.

15th Feb 2007, 13:03

frida says:

*decides to stay curled up in corner as has shivers and headache and can't keep eyes open and doesn't want to spread nasty whatever it is, :0(
*decides to have sleep and come back to you, when is better :0)
Like the hat bella, they are all the rage you know.

15th Feb 2007, 13:06

Sedna says:

*panics at brainfreezed Belladonna and fluified frida (get me, alliteration) in hopes does not soon become similar.

How can I help you both? I only have this old piece of ceramic donkey that I just found in my hair.
*sobs

15th Feb 2007, 13:10

Belladonna says:

*passes friday beaver shaped stuffed toy to cuddle while sleeping

15th Feb 2007, 13:11

Belladonna says:

some how an extra 'y' jumped in there

15th Feb 2007, 13:13

Sedna says:

*thinks it's force of habit and muscular memory insisting that the letters f r i d and a in that order are always followed by a Y.
*thinks too much, evidently

15th Feb 2007, 13:16

Belladonna says:

*agrees with Sedna

15th Feb 2007, 13:18

Sedna says:

Who wants chocolate? I have yogurt raisins too if you'd prefer?

15th Feb 2007, 13:19

Belladonna says:

*is feeling increasingly queesy from breakfast of ice cream

15th Feb 2007, 13:21

Sedna says:

Maybe not then O_O A bucket perhaps? Camomile and ginger tea? Tincture of Echinacea?

15th Feb 2007, 13:23

Belladonna says:

*is suspicious that Sedna has sussed identity :P

I'll go for the ginger tea...... and the bucket just in case

15th Feb 2007, 13:25

Sedna says:

Well I hadn't until you said that!
Here you go, ginger tea. And with that, I'm afraid I must be off, to my lecture. *loves and leaves

*sits down next to turckle and does nothing too

15th Feb 2007, 13:38

Belladonna says:

*wonders who turckle is :P
*sits with truckle and does nothing

15th Feb 2007, 13:38

truckle says:

i think truckle wonders who truckle is sometimes too!

15th Feb 2007, 13:55

truckle says:

*cherishes time spent doing nothing and considers interupting it for soup.
*wonders if Belladonna knows who Truckle is, as Truckle is now fairly sure Truckle doesn't.
*ahhh

15th Feb 2007, 14:11

Belladonna says:

*has no idea who truckle is and is worried that truckle doesn't know who he/she is
*understands that not knowing ones self is a common occurance on moblog
*rubs head as it hurts from the cold
*considers joining truckle in the delights of soup

15th Feb 2007, 15:18

frida says:

*wakes up and smells soup and feels a bit better, but is cold, so very very cold,
*thinks might know who truckle is but has been wrong before and knows tricks moblog plays sometimes with minds of the unwary :0)

15th Feb 2007, 16:09

frida says:

*also thinks may have sussed Bella.
*wonders if now all name sussing is sorted we shall begin a rip roaring adventure together.

15th Feb 2007, 16:35

Belladonna says:

*tentatively pokes it with a finger

15th Feb 2007, 16:37

Belladonna says:

*runs off as can smell the toast burning

15th Feb 2007, 16:38

Belladonna says:

*hopes too

15th Feb 2007, 16:46

Belladonna says:

it's giving me a funny look, the kind of look squishy things give...

15th Feb 2007, 16:47

frida says:

I wonder if we should try and put it in something to take with us, might proove useful whatever it is.

*considers pocket but looks too messy for that.

15th Feb 2007, 16:48

Belladonna says:

*fashions container out of charcoal toast

15th Feb 2007, 16:49

15th Feb 2007, 16:53

Belladonna says:

*stands well back as frida conducts manouver

15th Feb 2007, 16:56

truckle says:

Phew! Well done i think, looks like there's a great tunnel under there?
Anyone got a torch?

15th Feb 2007, 16:57

Sedna says:

Ew, it's all wibbly and stuff.

15th Feb 2007, 16:57

frida says:

*rummages in pocket and produces battery powered trillion candle power lighthouse lamp.

15th Feb 2007, 17:01

Belladonna says:

*fear for the doom of ones retina as sight of lighthouse lamp

15th Feb 2007, 17:02

frida says:

*at least will be able to walk normally now

15th Feb 2007, 17:03

Sedna says:

Wow!! *starts to sing the Lighthouse's Tale...

15th Feb 2007, 17:03

Belladonna says:

*slaps self for terrible typing skills

15th Feb 2007, 17:03

Belladonna says:

i am a lighthouse, worn by the weather and the waves....

15th Feb 2007, 17:04

Sedna says:

I keep my lamp in frida's trousers to warn the sailors on the way...

15th Feb 2007, 17:07

frida says:

I'm a little teapot ,

15th Feb 2007, 17:08

Belladonna says:

so we going down this tunnel or what?
looks a bit spooky to me

15th Feb 2007, 17:09

Sedna says:

I think it's worth it. Tunnelling to Salisbury from Canada sounds like a plan.

15th Feb 2007, 17:10

Belladonna says:

*whistles great escape theme tune

15th Feb 2007, 17:12

frida says:

*starts filling pockets with earth from tunnel

15th Feb 2007, 17:13

frida says:

*looks for motorbike to escape to border on.

15th Feb 2007, 17:14

Sedna says:

*considers making frida eat the dirt
*thinks that might be a bit harsh as loves frida very much

15th Feb 2007, 17:15

Belladonna says:

anyone need a fake passport?

frida says:

15th Feb 2007, 17:19

Sedna says:

Occupation: Norse Goddess

Not sure they'll buy it, so yes, I'd better, please.
...do they HAVE customs in our tunnel?

15th Feb 2007, 17:19

Belladonna says:

*uses old tesco receipt found in pocket to make fake passports
*is worried about beaver uniform as is allergic

15th Feb 2007, 17:24

truckle says:

Phew, I thought we were just going to stand around talking about it. Surely it's a hole already and we don't need to tunnel? Or is it a whole. Written adventures can be confusing. Who's got the knob? Perhaps we could use a combination of sticks and squishy stuff to fashion it into a fashionable drill.

15th Feb 2007, 17:24

frida says:

Yes they do , I believe it's a Wednesday you have to go in backwards reciting the words to I did it my way.

15th Feb 2007, 17:25

Sedna says:

It's a hole, but is it tunnel? And does it go where we need to go?

15th Feb 2007, 17:26

frida says:

*looks round at assembled and looks for flicker of guilt ref. missing knob*late with customs thing typically :0(

15th Feb 2007, 17:26

trucklehump says:

allegeric to uniforms?

15th Feb 2007, 17:26

frida says:

tunnels in films tend to go in the right direction but there's usually obsacles to be over come before reaching goal

15th Feb 2007, 17:28

Belladonna says:

such as the need to breath?

15th Feb 2007, 17:29

Sedna says:

No, like giant swallows that have fallen ill and need to be tended, isn't that right?

15th Feb 2007, 17:30

trucklehump says:

i think this worm hole's warping my posts...

15th Feb 2007, 17:30

frida says:

no, not allergic,
*wonders if Truckle has thing about uniforms too.*hopes so

15th Feb 2007, 17:30

Belladonna says:

ah yes forgot about the swallows

15th Feb 2007, 17:31

frida says:

brain is more befuddled than usual today due to weird bug thingy so will follow down tunnel at own speed and try to catch up occasionally,

15th Feb 2007, 17:33

frida says:

*ceases moment with fuzzy head to utter fabulous lne
You go on with out me ,I'll be fine, I'll hold them off as long as I can.
*flops back exhausted against wall of tunnel
*tries to drag self along to keep within range of voices .

15th Feb 2007, 17:35

Sedna says:

I'm just glad there's no bloody Latex in this uniform.

15th Feb 2007, 17:35

Belladonna says:

*hopes we can make it through the tunnel in 3 days
*hopes allergy to beaver uniform doesn't result in having head twice its normal size

15th Feb 2007, 17:36

Sedna says:

*takes a moment to miss the Ranger

15th Feb 2007, 17:39

truckle says:

*ducks to avoid speeding swallow

15th Feb 2007, 17:40

frida says:

*decides to have little rest again

I'll catch up tomorrow , leave a breadcrumb trail for me to follow.
The rats and other creatures down here will leave it alone I'm sure.

15th Feb 2007, 17:41

Sedna says:

What is it with all these swallows in tunnels!

15th Feb 2007, 17:42

Belladonna says:

we should follow the swallows, they should lead us to the other side

15th Feb 2007, 17:43

Sedna says:

I don't know. They have a habit of getting injured, they might just be zooming into a dead end.

15th Feb 2007, 17:44

Belladonna says:

well atleast we'll have something to eat if we unexpectidly get stuck down this tunnel

*wonders whether this plan has been thought through well enough

15th Feb 2007, 17:53

truckle says:

yeh tour management's not one of my strong points. Anyone wanna cup of tea?

15th Feb 2007, 18:13

Belladonna says:

*waves hand in air

15th Feb 2007, 18:16

truckle says:

Umm anyone got a kettle.

15th Feb 2007, 18:33

Sedna says:

*again ponders lack of mysterious powers

15th Feb 2007, 18:50

frida says:

*wonders where truckle is going as runs past at speed.

15th Feb 2007, 18:56

frida says:

*had hoped truckle was coming back to keep one company but didn't even say bye , see ya.
*sobs

15th Feb 2007, 19:21

trucklehump says:

trucklehump says:

*wonders if should make less haste and more something or other.
*resumes the days' initial activity and does nothing. but a bit further underground.

15th Feb 2007, 22:52

trucklehump says:

frida says:

*looks up the above in "Mindless drivle/English handbook.
*discovers not much use as blog dialect isn't featured in book.
Well I suppose we better venture a bit further. into the uncertain future that awaits us in the tunnel.
*hopes it includes a bir of running and general charging about like loonies

16th Feb 2007, 14:18

frida says:

16th Feb 2007, 14:19

frida says:

16th Feb 2007, 14:31

frida says:

*keeps getting wellies stuck in mire and forgets, comes hurtling back in as far as one can hurtle in wellies in a bog with a zimmer frame.
Well at least the sugar rush wore off Bella. We really must be getting on with whatever it was we were doing you know. Time and tide waits for something or other,

16th Feb 2007, 15:42

Belladonna says:

*wishes for some form of transport other than foot

three thousand miles is a lot to cover in 2 days

*wonders if maybe we can harness swallow power

16th Feb 2007, 15:46

frida says:

are we talking european or african ? we could climb in the coconuts and travel that way. If they can carry coconuts they could surely manage us too.

16th Feb 2007, 15:56

Sedna says:

*treks on down the dark tunnel

WOW! RUBIES!

16th Feb 2007, 17:40

Belladonna says:

well african swallows are larger, but then again they are non migratory, they may have trouble flying such a long distance...

how about we just clop the coconuts together and pertend we are on horse back?

works like a charm i'm told

16th Feb 2007, 17:41

Sedna says:

*calls back
Is nobody even remotely interested that there are rubies down here? I reckon we must be right under Greenland.

16th Feb 2007, 18:18

*fills pockets with twigs and the like incase we have to create an emergency shrubbery.
*clippity clops off after Bella

16th Feb 2007, 18:19

Belladonna says:

you never know when you might need an emergency shrubbery

*hopes we dont come across Tim the enchanter and his pyrotechnic wizardry
*or indeed the killer bunny

16th Feb 2007, 18:22

frida says:

don't worry , I have the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch in one of my pockets somewhere

16th Feb 2007, 18:58

Sedna says:

The tunnel's narrowing. Where are we? Under Ireland or something? There seem to be lots of potatoes above.

16th Feb 2007, 20:23

Belladonna says:

*eyes potatoes suspciously

you sure they're not yams??

16th Feb 2007, 23:30

*darts eyes around in frightened manner

17th Feb 2007, 12:40

Sedna says:

It's just time to move on. Come on...

*gethers up pocket items
*brushes away a tear

...let's move on down the tunnel, I want to get to Salisbury soon.

17th Feb 2007, 13:13

Sedna says:

*much trudging later

I see light above. I also hear the ominous sound of cowbells.

18th Feb 2007, 00:43

Belladonna says:

*wakes up from alcohol induced stupor

cowbells?
does that mean we've reached Salisbury at last?
The land of druids, flatness and green golriousness?

*hopes

18th Feb 2007, 12:32

Sedna says:

I hope so; the earth certainly does seem very chalky.... let us consider the sunlight above. *squints into the haze

Apparently one of the pubs contains a mummified hand.

18th Feb 2007, 14:36

Belladonna says:

oo yay, pubs with random artifacts!

*follows sedna into the light

18th Feb 2007, 14:45

Sedna says:

Hold on. Can you hear a faint shrieking?

It's getting closer!! O_o *clings

18th Feb 2007, 14:57

Sedna says:

It's coming down the tunnel...

18th Feb 2007, 15:00

Sedna says:

Bella... it sounds like a ghostly shrieking... could it be the HAND?!

18th Feb 2007, 15:06

frida says:

aarrrrrrrrrrrrrGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.
*flies back into view and lands in a heap(of something soft and sweet smelling) at Sedna's feet.

bloody silly BSAB, Got it wrapped round the stupid coconut shells, got a mile and half away and it started to recoil.

18th Feb 2007, 15:13

Sedna says:

*gasps with astonishment

FRIDA!!!!!!
*bounces joyously

We thought you were a ghostly hand!

18th Feb 2007, 15:15

Belladonna says:

*looks at sedna nonchantly

i didn't know hands could shriek??

*ponders if its something worse than a dis embodied hand that has the abiltiy to wail
*suddely feels alarmed
*grabs Sedna and uses are a post-mortal corpsic shield

18th Feb 2007, 15:15

Belladonna says:

phew its just frida

*worried over-reacted slightly
*hopes no one noticed

18th Feb 2007, 15:17

Sedna says:

JUST frida? I hope you mean "oh joy, it's frida, mother and maintainer of all things bloggy, hurtling back into bloglife by the powers vested in Borneo Steve's Amazing Bungee With Double Harness?

18th Feb 2007, 15:19

Belladonna says:

*wonders if rabbit's have lucky human's foot on car keys.
*wonders

18th Feb 2007, 15:38

Belladonna says:

*wonders what sort of car a rabbit would drive

18th Feb 2007, 15:40

Sedna says:

Apparently the rumour is that it was detached from its owner. It disappeared mysteriously in the 19th century or something and then reappeared equally mysteriously a few months later, and it's now kept in the pub as a tourist attraction. Bizarro bizarro.
I have an eagle's foot kilt-pin, if that counts?

To the pub!

18th Feb 2007, 15:41

Sedna says:

*reckons a rabbit would probably drive a hopper bus.

18th Feb 2007, 15:43

Belladonna says:

*is impressed by Sedna's local knowledge

aye to the pub!

*hopes some outrageous shinanigans await us

18th Feb 2007, 15:44

frida says:

19th Feb 2007, 11:29

trucklehump says:

Belladonna says:

*wonders why last 48hrs is a blur of strange dreams involving chips, peas and a gravy boat
*wonders if sedna may have something to do with it as she mysteriously dissapeared sunday night

20th Feb 2007, 13:38

frida says:

sedna definately did,:0)
some of us just sat and drank to forget :0)

where is Sedna by the way??
probably still partying.

20th Feb 2007, 13:39

Belladonna says:

*wonders if truckle is in on it too
*wonders if coconut shell is just a cunning disguise
*wonders
*wonders if wonders too much

20th Feb 2007, 13:40

Belladonna says:

ah look she's over there

*points

20th Feb 2007, 13:44

Belladonna says:

*then puts them back on.

Um maybe you could just this as a replacement piece of head gear?

20th Feb 2007, 14:08

Bella says:

*wonders if truckle misplaced a word in that last sentence?

20th Feb 2007, 14:15

truckle says:

hehe. i meant use instead of just. come on - translate!
*wonders if anyone knows how trousers ended up on bella's head.
*decides not to ask.

20th Feb 2007, 14:17

Bella says:

*remebers at one point had mirroredy blanket on head to alleviated brain freeze
*Then stole truckles trousers for their far superior brain freeze alleviating properties
*remebers wrapped mirroredy blankent around truckle in fetching kilt fashion while he was sleeping
*sniggers

20th Feb 2007, 14:24

frida says:

20th Feb 2007, 16:21

frida says:

20th Feb 2007, 16:22

truckle says:

truckle says:

Good Morning Sedna, not entirely... Still out there somewhere , altho now completely not sure whether out there, in there or just plain yonder!

Oh dear has anyone got some reality juice?

21st Feb 2007, 15:41

frida says:

I'm not sure where I am either but the food's ok and the view is quite nice. I think there's a bottle on the shelf over there.
*points. :0)

21st Feb 2007, 19:34

truckle says:

*Finally realises where Frida's pointing and takes a big swig.
Glug
*Also enjoys the unknown view and waits for the real world to kick in. Ah bliss... Thank you!

22nd Feb 2007, 13:05

frida says:

you're welcome :0)

22nd Feb 2007, 13:12

Sedna says:

*vision swims as snatches and takes a swig

22nd Feb 2007, 13:27

truckle says:

*pop*

22nd Feb 2007, 14:03

trucklehump says:

*Jumps up, does a neat little handstand thing, followed by a 720 turn and rounded up with a triple backwards summersault.
*Hurrah! The boing is back :o)
*Is there anything left in that bottle you're clutching Sedna?

22nd Feb 2007, 14:12

frida says:

*applauds trucklehump's boinginess and holds up card with 7.5 written on in crayon.

22nd Feb 2007, 14:44

truckle says:

*beams with boing success and does a brief encore.
*wobbles on landing
*wonders if the crayon came from the amazing pocket of eternal bottomlessness.
*likes the colour of the crayon

22nd Feb 2007, 14:51

frida says:

Xtreme pockets is what I have got.
All the better for putting things in.

22nd Feb 2007, 14:54

truckle says:

well quite. and getting them out of again.
*lunges for the bottle
arghhha!


22nd Feb 2007, 14:59

frida says:

*for a minute there thought truckle was going into another gymnastic routine.
*realises isn't.
*does like hair pulled back into bun thus giving facial expression of cheshire cat.
*not sure if sparkly leotard was good idea though.

What is it ?
have you done yourself an injury there??

22nd Feb 2007, 15:10

truckle says:

*picks self up off floor having totally failed to achieve grabbing for the bottle.
*Can't think why frida doesn't like sparkly leotard. Choose it for the particularly fetching leopord skin fx.
*pats bun - still in place.
*asks nicely for the bottle...

22nd Feb 2007, 15:22

trucklehump says:

*briefly considers having a full blown tantrum but decides to be all grown up and go and do something useful instead...
*so wanders off to find mirror to admire sparkly leotard again

22nd Feb 2007, 15:38

frida says:

*wonders if truckle should get eyes tested as bottle only just there.
Just thought leopard skin gave of an overall aerosmith/van halen vibe, but hey , i've got xtreme pockets so I shouldn't criticize .
*chuckles

22nd Feb 2007, 15:41

truckle says:

*yeehhhy! you're my best friend!
*glug glug .... pop!
*agrees at speed that maybe it's a tinsy bit wanaba-rock-god but so satisfying all the same.
*maybe should have shaved legs tho.
*sits down contendedly and helps chuckle

22nd Feb 2007, 15:46

frida says:

*wonders if truckle will actually share contents of bottle or will have to go in searce of own.

oh good lord , was so transfixed with agility and sparklyness, never even noticed state of legs.
wonders if should wait til contents of bottle take effect and attempt waxing process.
*would probably wipe chuckle off face.

22nd Feb 2007, 15:54

frida says:

.........even better chuckle off truckle tee hee.

22nd Feb 2007, 16:05

frida says:

...........or does that sound like a slightly less rude way of saying go away to truckle ??
*wonders

22nd Feb 2007, 16:07

truckle says:

Thinks it mainly sounds a bit dirty and not sure such a well behaved fairy-boy should be loitering here..
*wakes with nice shiny smooth legs
*Oooh!

22nd Feb 2007, 18:36

frida says:

you've got to admit the overall effect is much better.
*hopes doesn't notice how far waxing went
*sniggers
*looks at something interesting just there.

22nd Feb 2007, 19:01

truckle says:

*starts to smart
*decides to try not to notice how far waxing went.
*hopes frida didn't notice anything curious...
*and WHAT is THAT?!!

22nd Feb 2007, 19:04

frida says:

*looks round to see what THAT could be but as truckle isn't pointing ,not sure what should be looking at.
*is now curious to knpw what truckle has that is curious,
*slides hand in pocket and puts fingers round camera just incase.

22nd Feb 2007, 19:13

truckle says:

*too busy staring to do any pointing
*thinks that curiousity killed the cheshire cat
*thinks that's not very nice
*likes cats
*still hasn't summoned enough imagination to know what interesting thing frida is looking straight at

22nd Feb 2007, 19:25

frida says:

curiosity didn't kill the cheshire cat, surely it just faded way.
*is aware of both staring into void of imagination but keeps getting distracted looking for info on Isle of Coll and Katie Morag books for tomorrows geography lesson.:0)
*apologises profusely
Sorry truckle .

22nd Feb 2007, 19:35

frida says:

*also wonders if tonight's gig audience will consist of hip young people as described in timesonline?
*titters and sniggers and wonders too.

22nd Feb 2007, 19:38

truckle says:

no problem!
*hopes some of the hip young people will be wearing sparkly leotards too.
*wonders if can hear purring.
*confused :o)

22nd Feb 2007, 20:23

truckle says:

*signs and wanders off in search of soothing leg balm, curry and chocolate.
*or maybe just soothing leg balm

22nd Feb 2007, 20:24

frida says:

*wonders what truckle signed before wandering off.
*agree, on reflection, chuckle off truckle does sound slightly dirty and is amazed didn't see it before.
*wanders off after truckle as will have the curry and choccy if not wanted.
yum yum

22nd Feb 2007, 21:26

truckle says:

*wonders what has been signing too. Oh dear. Hopes it's not dodgy merch.
*wonders if Katie Morag was at the gig in a sparkly leotard.

*saves some chocolate for Frida tho.

22nd Feb 2007, 22:22

frida says:

*wonders what time truckle went to bed.

*munches contentedly on choccy.
hopes Katie Morag wasn't at gig in sparkly leotard as is only a little girl and it would be wrong :0)
*hopes soup was nice.

23rd Feb 2007, 07:25

25th Feb 2007, 00:28

babs says:

*sniggers.

25th Feb 2007, 09:42

Cress says:

Does anyone want some gherkins?

25th Feb 2007, 13:24

babs says:

Ooooo yes please .
I have a marmalade and peanut butter dip to go with .

25th Feb 2007, 13:29

Cress says:

Ooh, sounds great! Does it contain toxins? I don't know what they are but I hear they're bad.

25th Feb 2007, 13:33

babs says:

says on the side here , contains marmalade , peanut butter , nice lovely stuff, but not toxins, well, maybe a bit , well actually it's marmalade and peanut butter flavoured toxins really.

25th Feb 2007, 13:47

Cress says:

Ah, well, that's fairly specific. Not to worry, I'll eat some anyway. The gherkins need it, they've gone rather stale. No doilies left to wrap them in you see.

25th Feb 2007, 14:31

babs says:

Oh dear, we should proceed with all speed to the nearest doily emporium, perchance to also purchase beaded jampot covers .
*gets excited at prospect.

25th Feb 2007, 17:00

Cress says:

Yes! Yes! The love of doilies has infected me too! Which way? We will of course need some kind of absurd transport.

25th Feb 2007, 17:22

babs says:

*looks around

how are you on rollerblades.?
we could nick a supermarket trolley and take turns pushing.
or something else.

25th Feb 2007, 17:42

Cress says:

That's a marvellous idea!! Now for a trolley.


...to Roborough Tesco!

25th Feb 2007, 18:03

babs says:

*runs along behind as has no idea where that is . :0)

*thinks it almost certainly not in East Yorks.
*runs faster

25th Feb 2007, 18:42

Cress says:

Blue light all the way, eh, babs?

*realises has suddenly turned back into Cress
*wonders if will ever now discover phenomenal post-mortal powers

25th Feb 2007, 18:48

babs says:

We shall proceed with said names unless circumstances dictate otherwise.
I still have my pockets of fabulous size ,and contained within are things which will help us regain our fabulous powers.
I have long studied the mystical and hypnotic pockets of the sexy award winning folk fiddler and ,apart from the hamster, have modelled my own on them.
I can make you some if you wish thus making our collective pocket contents a force to be reckoned with.

25th Feb 2007, 19:17

Cress says:

Ooh yes please, pockets is important.

25th Feb 2007, 19:57

babs says:

*gets to work on enormous pockets for Cress.
Did you want the special kevlar linings and thermos inner pocket option cress?

25th Feb 2007, 20:27

Cress says:

How much extra is it?

25th Feb 2007, 20:41

babs says:

well , the kevlar bit is £3,500. and the thermos pocket would be ,oh lets say £250 plus £6.99 for the thermos.
The pockets feature a fine mesh lining to enable liquids to drain.
There's also a removable gortex map holder and extendable picnic table.

25th Feb 2007, 21:00

Cress says:

Well, with a picnic table, how can I say no? So long as you take as payment the money you owe me anyway as compensation for that bear eating incident.

25th Feb 2007, 21:04

babs says:

*oh lord, feels read back coming on as can't remember bear eating incident .
ok ,i'll give you the thermos and map pockets for free

25th Feb 2007, 21:42

Cress says:

Fantastic, count me in then. And I want a big ball of string.

25th Feb 2007, 22:44

babs says:

would that be standard white parcel string or would you prefer the green garden twine option.?

I'll throw in a couple of wooden spatulas too.

25th Feb 2007, 22:51

Cress says:

Spatulas! Always handy. The problem with the wooden ones is licking the cake mix, you can get splinters.
I think I'll go with the simple white, if I may please. Emphasises my post-mortal purity...

26th Feb 2007, 00:45

babs says:

jolly good . :0)
well, I worked through the night and here they are finished.
*stands back and admires handywork.
*is pleased

26th Feb 2007, 07:46

Cress says:

Ah, splendid, I particularly like the embroidery on this one.


Thank you babs!!! *huggles delightedly
We're all set for another crazy aventure!

Weee shall not, we shall not be moooved...

26th Feb 2007, 08:05

babs says:

*wonders who gets to ride in the trolley first.
we could both push to start with and then leap in like a bob sleigh team when we get a good speed up. I don't want to wear one of those clingy suits though.
*laughs as is reminded of flanders on simpsons in clingy ski suit.

26th Feb 2007, 08:10

Cress says:

I've got this string we can steer with. I'll push, if you like.

*sets about fastening strings to front of trolley
*wonders how yanking a string from inside the basket will affect anything
*shrugs

26th Feb 2007, 08:25

babs says:

*sits in trolley trying to be as aerodynamic as possible.

26th Feb 2007, 08:32

Cress says:

*smooths babs' hair down
*readies rollerblades

Aaaaand - we're off!

*swoosh, scrape, swoosh scrape, swoosh, scrape
I loooove to skate.

*picks up speed
*remembers trolley
*pouts
*pirouettes gracelessly and returns
*grabs trolley and begins to push

26th Feb 2007, 08:38

trickle says:

*weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

26th Feb 2007, 10:07

babs says:

*grips sides of trolley and wishes trickle had had weeee before jumping in trolley.
*is glad of holes in trolley for same reason.
Right Cress , (shouts at top of voice to counteract wind noise )
(because of speed and not bottom burp type wind)
GET READY TO JUMP IN................NOW !

26th Feb 2007, 12:55

billy says:

*changes name in the hope it will cover up the whole widdling incident.
*Clings on and wonders if should leap out and go and find a bathroom just incase...

26th Feb 2007, 16:44

Cress says:

*leaps aboard

HEEEERRREWWWEEEGGGOOOOOOOHHHMMMMYYYYGOOOODDDDDD!!!!!!

26th Feb 2007, 17:05

babs says:

actually , that's a jolly good idea, there's no knowing when decent toilet facilities will become available.
*forgets exactly where we are going but is sure it is a minor detail .
*sticks one leg over side and attempts braking with heel manouevre.

26th Feb 2007, 17:07

Cress says:

I thought we were going to...

um...

*backtracks back to the days of Winnie Pegg.

Someone mentioned an island paradise...?

27th Feb 2007, 08:19

babs says:

OOOOoooo forgot,
*looks at wire trolley and has serious doubts about ocean going properties but something's bound to turn up.
*remembers paddles from before are still in pocket.
*still uncertain of paddles origin but will risk using them again if needed.

27th Feb 2007, 08:27

Cress says:

*thinks truckle's gone very quiet
*ponders
*prods inert form of truckle
*prods the hump too for good meansure
*ponders further

...Are we speeding up? WITH THE WIND IN YOUR HAIR OF A THOUSAND LAAAACCEEES...."

27th Feb 2007, 08:55

Cress says:

*meansure is like measure but meaner, there's more prodding involved

27th Feb 2007, 10:58

babs says:

*prods also, and slaps.
Nope , nothing Cress, looks like you and me from now on. :0)
What do we care, we have oceans to cross, we have a supermarket trolley, we have paddles of dubious origin, we have big f**k off pockets and we have each other.
Bring it on.

27th Feb 2007, 12:38

Cress says:

Fortunately the sand on this conveniently placed westward beach has slowed us down. I suggest we line the basket with seaweed and waterproof it with a paste of some sort.

27th Feb 2007, 12:54

babs says:

good move ,seaweed ,for we can nibble on it to sustain us on our journey.
hhmmmm , the waterproofing paste. I have here a large tub of lard and a catering sized pack of curry powder if that will do.?

27th Feb 2007, 16:09

Cress says:

I'm not sure... it might turn all the water around us into kedgeree and then we'd never get anywhere. Any other ideas?

27th Feb 2007, 16:45

Cress says:

*busies self collecting weed



*of the oceanic variety

27th Feb 2007, 16:49

babs says:

*likes kedgeree.

I have several sheets of marine ply here, maybe we could cobble something together with that.
Just hang on, I'll get it out of my pocket. Just have to get the outboard motor out first.

27th Feb 2007, 20:41

truckle-in-disguise-as-billy says:

*pokes up head
*is rather sore from all that meansured poking
*was rather hoping if kept head down for long enough, might inadvertantly become a stowaway but seems might be better to help anyway...

27th Feb 2007, 22:26

still-in-disguise says:

*collects a big pile of curious weeds; edible mushrooms; disgarded plastic bottles and handily abandoned rope
*leaves it by the trolley
*disppears into the dunes to find a peace offering for breakfast.

27th Feb 2007, 22:30

Cress says:

How about instead of paste, this handy oil that just washed up from Napoli? That'll make it good and watertight.

27th Feb 2007, 22:33

Cress says:

*spots billy's offerings

Oooh useful!

27th Feb 2007, 22:42

billy says:

*phew! pleased to be of use after all that hiding in a hump.

27th Feb 2007, 22:53

Cress says:

Well you cn get to work smearing this weed with oil... I have knots to tie.

27th Feb 2007, 22:56

babs says:

so .billy, ..... truckle and trucklehump. One and the same or two seperate entities ??

27th Feb 2007, 22:58

babs says:

is feeling that way out tonight tee hee :0)

27th Feb 2007, 23:08

babs says:

oh , come on billy/truckle/trucklehump/trickle etc . Was being silly coz is tired.
You can sail the oceans with us to our island paradise . We need help with the rowing and you can remain incognito as well as all the above names :0)

27th Feb 2007, 23:25

Cress says:

Yeah, you can come, you gave us rope. Nothing more important than rope except a gun and a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle.

27th Feb 2007, 23:41

babs says:

............and clothes pegs.

28th Feb 2007, 00:00

Cress says:

Only when you're hanging out with stinky sweaty young men.

28th Feb 2007, 00:02

babs says:

....well obviously , how else would you fasten yourself and the stinky sweaty young men to the line.
Honestly, *rolls eyes.

28th Feb 2007, 00:13

Cress says:

*busies self with tying knots to attempt to hide how quick and amusing thought that was

28th Feb 2007, 00:52

babs says:

nothing like a good stiff breeze to freshen up stinky young men Cress .
And a good old blow of course .

28th Feb 2007, 08:16

babs says:

*also busies self with something or other, in a nautical way.

28th Feb 2007, 08:21

babs says:

*wonders if billy/etc/etc/etc/etc will return after scuttling of into dunes in a hurry last evening.
*wonders

28th Feb 2007, 08:22

truckle reinstated says:

*wonders if it's safe to come out yet?

*and whether all the stinky sweaty young men been safely tied to the line?

28th Feb 2007, 11:27

truckle says:

*decides has got too much sand in shoes and pants and therefore it must be safe by now
* is somewhat abashed
* is that the right word?
*busies self lovingly oiling seaweed
* very pleased to allowed to come on the amazing trolley-boat voyage to paradise

28th Feb 2007, 11:32

babs says:

:0)

28th Feb 2007, 12:32

babs says:

*watches amused as truckle shakes sand out of shoes but averts gaze for pant /sand removing from.
*likes the word "abashed "

28th Feb 2007, 12:36

billy says:

*it's more of a seafaring name - to me way-hey bully-i-o

28th Feb 2007, 12:36

billy says:

*does abashed mean sorry for being silly? And slightly ashamed of weeeeeeeeeeeeee-ing in the trolley?

28th Feb 2007, 12:38

billy says:

* spots a nearby tree with Huuuge leaves.
they'd make loverly sails
* tests out tree climbing skills...
oh dear!

28th Feb 2007, 12:45

babs says:

don't worry about weeeeeeeeeee-ing thing, just concerned for likelihood of nappy rash combined with sand in pants .
Not good .
*winces at thought
*watches fascinated at billy's tree climbing attempt and tries not to look up.

28th Feb 2007, 13:00

billy says:

*sniggering almost causes total loss of grip
*tries not to look down...

28th Feb 2007, 13:10

babs says:

you're doing well up there.
*hopes nothing untoward lives in tree.
*leaf size would indicate possible habitat for something largish and quite possibly deadly
*but could be wrong

28th Feb 2007, 13:14

billy says:

Ooo I've found a pinapple!

28th Feb 2007, 13:21

babs says:

oh yummy, coz loves pinapple a lot more than pineapple.
*wonders
are we there already???

*looks out over pristine white sand to turquoise blue sea and thinks. It sure as hell don't look like Bridlington .
*looks for something to fashion grass skirt out offand coconuts for ethnic bra.

28th Feb 2007, 15:31

Cress says:

I thought pineapples came from space. They certainly don't come from pines.

*pines
*ponders

How on earth did we manage that? You're right of course, babs, we seem to have found ourselves already on the island paradise. Billy, have a quick check - can you see a teleportation device in that tree that you might have accidentally knocked?

28th Feb 2007, 16:16

babs says:

*ponders chance of teleportation device giving access to holod.......no, musn't.

28th Feb 2007, 16:48

billy says:

Hmm... Not much signs of teleportation devices. Altho there is a sticker that says er "tesco £2.49". Looks like it might have fallen off the pinapple (def: a very small pineapple)

*scrabbles around for anything that might ressemble a teleportation device.

Is a little chilly. Suspects it may be some far flung Scottish Island and the white sand is just a tourism quest?

28th Feb 2007, 17:18

babs says:

harris and lewis are about as far flung as one can get and are very lovely.
*was begining to think pinapple may have drifted in on gulf stream but more likely on Tesco lorry.
It is chilly, pulls shawl round shoulders as coconut shell bra and grass skirt are now totally inadequate

28th Feb 2007, 17:39

Cress says:

*looks disappointed and goes on readying the trolley craft

28th Feb 2007, 17:42

billy says:

*resumes search for teleportation device at double speed in the hope of cheering everyone up
THUMP
*falls out tree because forgot about holding on in haste
d'oh

28th Feb 2007, 17:50

Cress says:

*ties a knot disconsolately and stands back to survey handiwork - old shopping trolley covered in oil, seaweed and tatty rope.
*like most beaches then.

28th Feb 2007, 18:02

babs says:

*wanders off sadly but cheers up on discovery of odd flip flop.
*has hope again

28th Feb 2007, 18:19

Cress says:

I think it's seaworthy!! If a little flammable with all that oil on it.

28th Feb 2007, 18:20

billy says:

Hey Cress! Good work... what a beautiful vessel.
*picks self up from tangle of leaves and twigs
*retrieves the biggest leaf brings it over to make a sail

28th Feb 2007, 18:25

Cress says:

Oh, billy, it's beautiful! *admires
We'll be heading over the seas in our fine trolleyboat in no time! What can we use for a mast?

28th Feb 2007, 18:30

Cress says:

One of use could always just stick a leg in the air. What do you think?

28th Feb 2007, 18:42

billy says:

*bewilderment!

28th Feb 2007, 18:57

babs says:

well, my legs won't get us very far, only good for about half a knot I should think, only little.

28th Feb 2007, 19:02

billy says:

Oh! You mean one of our own legs?

28th Feb 2007, 19:12

Cress says:

Mine'll do. Long Tall Sally legs here. We should be hurtling along.

28th Feb 2007, 19:12

babs says:

pressumed so,
*looks around for other leg type

28th Feb 2007, 19:14

babs says:

*doesn't bother looking for other leg variation . :0)

28th Feb 2007, 19:16

Cress says:

There might be a leg washing up soon but I don't think we can count on it...

28th Feb 2007, 19:17

billy says:

*bemused but hands Cress some string and the big leaf.
I hope you don't get seasick from being upside down in an ocean bound shopping trolley?

28th Feb 2007, 19:18

babs says:

*lashes leaf to Cress' legs .

28th Feb 2007, 19:18

Cress says:

Thank you babs. Well there's only one way to find out, isn't there! I'll try to sick over the side if necessary... hot.

28th Feb 2007, 19:21

babs says:

*wonders if Cress has thought this through .
Well billy , at least we won't have to row .
*sits back and lets the breeze and Cress do the rest.

28th Feb 2007, 19:22

babs says:

*trails fingers in water.
*fogets is not in tropics yet
Water's bloody cold.

28th Feb 2007, 19:24

billy says:

*wow!

Um are we ready for offski then?

28th Feb 2007, 19:24

Cress says:

...

Didn't you have an outboard motor in your pockets, babs?
Oh I bet you left it on the beach.

*looks back at rapidly receding beach

Too late. I told you we'd be going fast with the legs of a Giantess.

28th Feb 2007, 19:25

billy says:

*realises everyone is already waterbourne...

*waves cheerfully and begins constructing speedraft with leftover bits...

28th Feb 2007, 19:28

babs says:

*gets comfy, as comfy as one can in a trolleyboat , with 2 other people ,one with legs in air ,but not sure of other's tendencies.

28th Feb 2007, 19:31

Cress says:

*sighs and lowers legs so that craft will slow down, giving billy time to catch up.

28th Feb 2007, 19:32

babs says:

*realises all too late billy not in boat . lmao

28th Feb 2007, 19:35

Cress says:

*cracks open so

28th Feb 2007, 19:35

Cress says:

*panics at too-soon posting and hastens to add the intended "me bubbly whilst waiting" very quickly, despite spam flooding filter saying no no no not yet.

28th Feb 2007, 19:35

billy says:

*stares at commotion in boat. *realsies its rude to stare. *especially at girl's legs.
*and half finished posts
*concentrates on speedily finishing the speedy catchup boat

28th Feb 2007, 19:40

babs says:

*thinks blog is getting to Cress too. now. recognises early signs

28th Feb 2007, 19:40

Cress says:

Just one apostrophe could have made that semi-post a catastrophe.
*peers up at babs
Please may I put my head in your lap, it's a little uncomfortable...

28th Feb 2007, 19:44

Cress says:

*does anyway until told not to and wonders if billy's making progress

28th Feb 2007, 19:52

babs says:

of course you can Cress.
*plaits Cress' hair to pass the time while watching billy on shore hastily constructing fabulously speedy catchup boat,
thought it said cetchup boat but realised would be silly.

28th Feb 2007, 19:54

Cress says:

Only as silly as a gravy boat.

28th Feb 2007, 19:55

babs says:

mmmmmm gravy, northern boys love gravy.
*hopes others have seen soccer AM :0)

28th Feb 2007, 19:58

Cress says:

*hasn't and shifts head position a little in uncertainty.

28th Feb 2007, 19:59

billy says:

*checks whether there's any gravy among the ship-building debris

28th Feb 2007, 20:02

Cress says:

*calls back across the 20 metres or so of water

Sand could work for granules?

28th Feb 2007, 20:05

babs says:

*can't hear what billy is thinking as is still building boat on beach.
*wonders if when completed boat could be used instead of Cress' legs.
*crazy idea , but just might work.

28th Feb 2007, 20:08

Cress says:

*hopes desperately so as current boat is very flammable and current leg situation quite achey.

28th Feb 2007, 20:10

billy says:

*gives up on the gravy
*wonders if outboard motors need gravy
*hopes not
*starts motor with success
Yeye! A life on the ocean wave...

28th Feb 2007, 20:16

babs says:

*waves

28th Feb 2007, 20:19

Cress says:

HURRAH! Excellent work, billy! *adjusts legs to counteract the movement effect of rippling waves
Will your boat take me and babs too, or will you be joining us in the trolley?

28th Feb 2007, 20:21

billy says:

*realises a) didn't consider steering when building and b) is heading off in a completely different direction to the wonder-trolley
*wonders
*waves

28th Feb 2007, 20:22

Cress says:

*panics
*raises legs and bends knees to manipulate the winds

PADDLE BABS PADDLE! We must catch up!

28th Feb 2007, 20:25

babs says:

*paddles like thing possessed.
*rummages in pocket and hopes still has BSAB with which to catch billy's craft somehow,
*finds it and attatches enormeous grappling hook, flings for all is worth in direction of billy.
*all the while paddling

28th Feb 2007, 20:29

billy says:

*has resorted to singing and wondering where the motor wll take him
*is knocked off by an enormous flying grappling hook.
*surfaces and splutters a bit

28th Feb 2007, 20:32

billy says:

*hadn't realised singing was so bad...

28th Feb 2007, 20:33

Cress says:

Oops.

28th Feb 2007, 20:34

Cress says:

Well nice one babs, we've got an outboard motor on a grappling hook on a bungee, and a soaked companion bobbing up and down in the ocean just out of reach. What's the next master plan?

28th Feb 2007, 20:36

babs says:

*dives in to rescue billy ,
*realises is not as good at swimming as first thought
*hopes billy is.

28th Feb 2007, 20:37

billy says:

s'ok. I needed a wash.
*somehow hook made the boat - clambers back on and hoping now super-speeding trolley isn't gong to wreck the entire thing

28th Feb 2007, 20:37

Cress says:

*dives in to rescue babs
*ponders
*examines water around knees
*stops trolley boat and goes over towards speedraft.
*SPLOOSH

Ah. Gets deeper here.

28th Feb 2007, 20:40

babs says:

*drips

28th Feb 2007, 20:43

billy says:

*wonders

28th Feb 2007, 20:45

babs says:

*drips and wonders
*wonders what billy wonders about

28th Feb 2007, 20:46

Cress says:

I love that feeling when you get so drenched there's nothing you can do about it and whether you're fully dressed or not you might as well just enjoy it.

*dives underwater
*pops up with hair all over face
*plays about in the waves
*looks happy and cheerful and splashy

28th Feb 2007, 20:47

billy says:

chucks cress a beach ball
*wonders what is wondering about
*lies on the raft and drips

28th Feb 2007, 20:50

Cress says:

*bats it around happily and splooshes
*fingers start to ache
*feet start to go blue
*remembers is not in island paradise yet so clambers aboard raft and sorts out hair and thinks about finding some way to warm up

28th Feb 2007, 20:52

babs says:

*watches Cress frolicking in water .
*sneezes
*pulls soggy shawl tightly round shoulders .
*can't remember if is in sea or on raft or in trolley.

28th Feb 2007, 20:53

Cress says:

Come on, get on the raft. It's lovely. No steering, admittedly, but we could paddle with our hands for a wide turn radius...

28th Feb 2007, 20:55

Cress says:

!

Say, you don't mind me here, do you, billy? It's just you did such a fine job and I'm a little worried the trolley might burn down.

28th Feb 2007, 20:59

billy says:

*wonders if the lump in pocket is the curious little device he found in the tree...

billy says:

No, of course not, I'm just wondering what this is...

28th Feb 2007, 21:03

babs says:

how clever of you to pack a tent

28th Feb 2007, 21:03

Cress says:

*boggles
*examines impressive lump

So you DID find a device in the tree?

28th Feb 2007, 21:04

billy says:

A tent? Eh?
* extracts the small but impressive lump from pocket
* gives it a good rub to read the instructions

Ooooooooooo

*the device falls back onto the raft as billy disappears from the picture

28th Feb 2007, 21:08

Cress says:

Eek! He went! Come on babs.

*rubs billy's item
Oooooooooooo

*vanishes too

28th Feb 2007, 21:10

billy says:

*finishes vanishing

28th Feb 2007, 21:17

babs says:

*gives it another rub for good measure , and again because wants to.
*OOOOOoooooooooo Cress, I feel all wibbly..........................

28th Feb 2007, 21:20

Cress says:

*arrives in new place with a POP

Ooh, nice. Check out that sunset.

28th Feb 2007, 21:21

Cress says:

*looks around for billy

28th Feb 2007, 21:26

babs says:

*looks around for Cress and billy .
*thinks must have ended up in wrong place.

28th Feb 2007, 21:52

Cress says:

*taps babs' shoulder

These are my legs, not the trees you must have thought they were. It's just billy missing.

28th Feb 2007, 21:53

Cress says:

Honestly, men. Give their items a rub, they don't care if you come too, and then they disappear without a trace.

Typical.

28th Feb 2007, 21:59

babs says:

...and we have to practically bend over backwards for them sometimes.
They can be very hard to please .

*suddenly remembers somethng forgotten and leaps back through device thingy.
here, catch!
*throws knob to Cress for safe keeping.

bec says:

i didn't know where else to go...

THE MIRE IS BROKEN!!!!!!

*breaks out in cold sweat
*sits in corner
*proceeds to rock back and forth
*mutters inaudiable mutterings

1st Mar 2007, 12:07

Cress says:

The Mire is broken? Oh ye gods!! What is to become of us?

*surveys knob reverently

It is an honour, babs, to hold your knob.

1st Mar 2007, 13:02

Cress says:

*whistles a lonely tune

1st Mar 2007, 20:13

Cress says:

*trundles around on empty island paradise. No billy, no babs, no Faith. Just one girl and her knob silhouetted on the beach, watching a glorious sun sink slowly into a blazing mandarin sea.

1st Mar 2007, 21:37

babs says:

*whooshy transportational device noise.
*ends up in heap at cress' feet.
*luckily heap is seaweed
Sorry cress had to go back for lucky whit hare foot.
*gives up all hope .

1st Mar 2007, 21:55

Cress says:

OH THANK THE NORSE GODDESS! Me.
Oh babs, it's so good to see you! I think we've lost billy. I was on the point of wading into the sea.

1st Mar 2007, 21:58

babs says:

*hits side of head to get sand out of ears.
well, I got to the other side and wasn't sure if I'd find my way back but as you can see unfortunately I did, I was drawn back in , even clung to the edges of the device so it wouldn't grab me. :0(

1st Mar 2007, 22:23

Cress says:

There's no cure.

1st Mar 2007, 22:24

babs says:

*hangs head in shame

1st Mar 2007, 22:48

babs says:

I cannot believe I came back here again, curse the blog and it's ability to be unrelenting in it's grabbingness, the shame, oh the humiliation,oh look a conveniently placed bar just along the beach there.
*runs, (that run when your trying to look cool but is impossible to do on loose sand )

2nd Mar 2007, 08:19

babs says:

What can I get you Cress , I'm buying.
*wonders, did say that outloud ??
*wonders and hopes not.

2nd Mar 2007, 08:20

Cress says:

Half of Guinness please! :D

2nd Mar 2007, 09:18

babs says:

*trundles up to bar.
No guinness Cress, just local stuff.
They have something here which the barman tells me is very similar in taste and texture, brewed from clams, pineapple, yams with a hint of seeweed.
Should we give it a go. ??

2nd Mar 2007, 13:17

Cress says:

That'll do nicely, give it a whirl.
*removes Lego lifejacket

Bit hot here innit.

2nd Mar 2007, 18:23

babs says:

It is rather.
*is glad didn't have time to look for other outfit as grass skirt works well apart from causing legs to turn green.

2nd Mar 2007, 19:47

Cress says:

Stains eh?

3rd Mar 2007, 00:27

Cress says:

*looks at the sand

Ooh I say, what's this?

*picks up gold shiny thing

A dubloon! You know what this means? Where's there's dubloons there's...

3rd Mar 2007, 12:20

Pirate Jake says:

YARR.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:20

Cress says:

No, babs, actually I was going to say "pirates". I must say, you were very clever to say that without moving your... mouth...
*turns round
Oh.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:21

Pirate Jake O'Reilley says:

Ye're a fine young maid t'be sure. Ye and yer lapdog can come and be hostages aboard me fine ship, "The Maloney Blight".

3rd Mar 2007, 12:26

Cress says:

She's not a lapdog! And we refuse to come, sir. Besides, it's bad luck to have a woman aboard a ship. Isn't it?

3rd Mar 2007, 12:27

Pirate Jake O'Reilley says:

Not exactly, we's got a new charter o' superstition drawn up just last week as says it's only when yer need ter throw somethin' overboarrd that it become the woman's fault. So ye'll be both comin' wi' me. And I'm parched as the Mariner of old, at least gimme some o' that fine seaweed grog o' yourrs before I kills with me cutlass here.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:29

Cress says:

Ahh that's just lovely. I hope we don't become becalmed or bestormed or bekrakened or anything. I'd hate to think it was my lapdog's fault.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:35

Pirate Jake O'Reilley says:

YEARRGGHHHHHH this grog be bitter as St Swithin's urination itself, what be yer source o' this terrible brew?
Oh, I see, that bar over yonder. Why did ye not order a Guinness?

3rd Mar 2007, 12:38

Cress says:

That was all they had. But listen, don't take us prisoner. I can pay my own ransom. I have a lovely piece of gold here and it's all yours if you treat us well. I'll challenge you for captaincy of the ship, be sure of it. I have a fine history of piratey swordfighting!

3rd Mar 2007, 12:40

Pirate Jake O'Reilley says:

Ah... well... y'see... I'm actually captain of "The Maloney Blight". I'm gunstuffer actually. But if ye looks here, me cutlass has just bin upgraded to a Junjoo Fighter's Primary Eight-Oh-Seven, so I'm actually allowed a fleetin' glimpse in deck battles rather than bein' the extra that dies with the first cannon shot now. Junjoo be the best brand ye can come by in a piratey budget, see. I was hopin' to upgrade to a Nine-Oh-Two after presentin' yer bonny selves tae the captain but I don't think he'll be best pleased if I being him a mutinous maid with prior experience.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:43

Cress says:

Funny, I could swear "Junjoo" rhymes with something, but I just can't think what.

*remembers
*pales
*wibbles sadly

Ah yes. Of course... she's gone now.

*firm look of resolve
TAKE US TO YOUR CAPTAIN!

3rd Mar 2007, 12:44

Pirate Jake O'Reilley says:

Ahh, he's goin' ter be really mad about this.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:45

Cress says:

Come on, babs. To the Maloney Blight.

3rd Mar 2007, 12:55

Cress says:

*rolls over, yawns and opens eyes. The sunlight is streaming through a small gap in the curtains, casting a bright yellow rectangle on the pine floor and warming the magnolia of the walls.

What? What? Oh for goodness' sake. I hate this kind of ending.

3rd Mar 2007, 13:17

min says:

*clanking sound.
Well I hope you're not going to be lounging around here all day, I have to hoover in here and there's paintwork to be washed down .
*puts bucket and hoover down.
This place is in a shocking state ,needs a good old clean and tidy from top to bottom.

3rd Mar 2007, 14:10

Cress says:

Sorry, I'm sorry, min. I had this really weird dream, must have been sleepwalking and stuff, caused a mess in my sleep. You'd never believe me if I told you what happened.

3rd Mar 2007, 14:12

min says:

This is moblog. Surely everything ever written here is true?
But you can tell me anyway while I polish the two awards here .
*Takes them down from mantelpiece.
I'll use this old scruffy tshirt .

3rd Mar 2007, 16:41

Cress says:

Of course, there's never ANY deceit on the Moblog. Well, it all began with... gosh... so long ago... I can't quite remember. I think there were marionettes. But maybe that really happened.
You know what we should do? I think we should knock through that wall there, open it out into a sort of kitchen diner. And maybe convert the loft.

3rd Mar 2007, 16:55

Cress says:

And do... what do people do with houses. Um. Oh yes! Convert the spare bedroom into a study, maybe a few bedding plants along the edge of the lawn. What do you think, min?

3rd Mar 2007, 17:00

min says:

Excellent idea, Cress . We could easily fit a small conservatory on because the old shed could go. That bit between the lawn and the potting shed , we could have a bit of decking, there's a nice view of the deerpark from there.
The lodge next to the main gates could do with an overhaul while we're on with it.

4th Mar 2007, 13:02

Cress says:

We could rent it out? Or we could turn it into a summerhouse. Maybe a balcony overlooking the orchard.

4th Mar 2007, 13:30

min says:

Brilliant idea. Rental sounds good, bring in a bit of income so we don't have to sell up and leave. All that parkland going to waste, we could rent that out and get some stock on there.Keep the grass down.

4th Mar 2007, 15:22

Cress says:

You missed a spot over there by the way.

How about goats? I've always loved goats. We could hire a shepherd boy to look after them. Or rather goatherd. So long as he doesn't get lonely and start yodelling.

4th Mar 2007, 15:28

min says:

goats it is then. Ey up Cress, we could use the goats milk to make high quality goats milk produce, all organic .Give the Duchy of Cornwall a run for it's money. The lodge could be the shop.
What else can we grow and make.
Oooooo blog jam ,blog honey, blog fruit cakes ,blog biccies. to name but a few.

4th Mar 2007, 15:50

Cress says:

Why what a dazzling idea! We could be self-sufficient. I'll make tea-towels with acorns and things printed on them, and small wooden geese to use as doorstops, and we can sell them in the shop. Blog brownies. Blog pie with clotted cream.

4th Mar 2007, 16:29

min says:

*rushes out to take scenic piccies round grounds for postcards . Will we need a gamekeeper do you suppose ??

4th Mar 2007, 21:45

Tweedle says:

Or a game Keeper.

5th Mar 2007, 07:45

min says:

* hhmmmmm wonders if Kepper knows anything about game.

5th Mar 2007, 08:11

Cress says:

Keeper knows plenty about mind game.

5th Mar 2007, 11:08

min says:

*wonders if Kepper knows anything about mind games too :0)

5th Mar 2007, 12:56

Cress says:

*wonders if mysterious newcomer Kepper will put in an appearance

5th Mar 2007, 13:25

min says:

*wonders if mysterious new Kepper will be too busy looking after game to put in appearance .

*wonders if Kepper knows Keeper and Ranger.

5th Mar 2007, 13:48

Cress says:

In Devon sure I was a Keeper
And half my life I lived outdoors
Using skills my father taught me
On that land that edged the open moors

I cut the snares of any poacher
Rising hours before the sun
I guarded nests and planted covers
Then drove those birds out towards the guns

And I said Jackie boy, the master's day is done
See thee well, the Keeper's time has come...

*sobs sobs sobs and wails with bereavement

5th Mar 2007, 14:24

babs says:

*tried new name , got bored.

there there Cress.
*comforts.
