Christmas Tree....!!!!

Yes, me again, popping up on your blogrol or Google Reader like a pulsating pimple in the middle of your face on the eve of a Christmas party. Apologies. I expect you are sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for me to reveal the wonder that is my Christmas tree...
Okay, see this space...



Space



...this is the space where a picture of my Christmas tree will go when I have found and decorated it. I also have to find a celebrity to turn on the fairy lights. I have contacted Mr Beastie but he is under the weather with Manflu, made more complicated by a funny rash... and a funny walk...
Anyhow, I hope that by the end of today I will have the above space filled with a picture of my Christmas tree.
As an aside, and probably only relevant to those in the UK, did anyone see Black Mirrors on Channel 4 last night? Rather chilling. It was written by Charlie Brooker and Konnie Huq. It has just dawned on me that the two lead characters were loosely based on themselves. Chilling indeed.

Anyhow... tree to find.... tree to decorate... And tomorrow will be the last post in my blogging marathon and we will all be able to breathe a huge sigh of relief.

    I'm sorry to hear that Mr Beastie is in bed with a swelling.

  2. Rog: The thought of Mr Beastie swelling in bed is not a pleasant one!!

  3. I started to watch - then picked up a book, then continued to the end. Can't say I enjoyed it - in the same way that I didn't enjoy '1984' but recognise its importance - if that doesn't sound too poncey.
    Today is the day to get tree and decorations out - with any luck.

  4. Pat: No, I don't think I enjoyed Black Mirrors, but it certainly made me think... I'm looking forward to the next one, which is going to be about Facebook.
    I hope I get my tree up today... or a tree... any old tree really...

    Sx

  5. Like Charades, I'm totally lost on the Black Mirrors thing. Sorry.

  7. Is it almost Christmas? I've been a little pre occupied of late...
    Dare say i'll make some sort of an effort with a "mini tree" and a few baubles (space id of a premium around here) to get into a festive mood over the next few days...
    good luck with your endeavours Miss Scarlet... I shall keep returning in anticipation of sighting the product of your labour...

  8. Princess: Indeed! It is a little like giving birth...
    7 comments in and no suggestions of an alternative Christmas bush.

  9. Regarding the BBC link, I noted this comment...

    "Every life includes significant landmarks: your first kiss, your first job, your first undetected murder."

    I wonder if he saw my "first period" costume?

  10. MJ: We are having a sychronised blogging experience!! What with the 'Lola' moment last week and now this!
    ...although I am still trying to recover from the period costume...

  11. I'll also be blogging about pubic hair shaving this week if you'd like to synchonize posts.

  12. Hello Scarlet:
    What a tease you are.....no sign of our tree until Christmas Eve, so no rush!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. MJ: I will be close to your theme with a toileting experience in Minehead.

    The Top Hats: I really want to get into the Christmas spirit this year, so I'm putting the decorations up earlier than usual... says the woman who hasn't even bought her Christmas cards yet...

  14. Well now I have to go look that up, Black Mirrors, because it sounds disturbing, something I enjoy.

    Awaiting news of the tree,

    Pearl

  15. Goodness, so you've launched your Christmas tree into space! What an original idea! How far has it got? Has it reached the Milky Way yet? Or Mars? Or Twix?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I await with great anticipation as to what will be on top of your Christmas tree!

    Some me of my thoughts scare me! x

    ReplyDelete
  17. Why did I type me after some?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Pearl: If you get the chance, Black Mirrors is well worth watching, last night's one was seriously creepy.

    Nick: Unfortunately my attempts at launching a vintage Woolworths Christmas tree into space, ended in Wales. I am too upset to comment further on this matter.

    John: Whatever is on the top of my Christmas tree keeps falling off. I will have to try a different angle.

    John: Blame it on the Christmas rush!

  19. In the interim, perhaps post a pix of your bush festively decorated!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Mr LX: Okay... the tree is up... the lights are on... but the pics have come out badly because it's too dark... I will have to try again tomorrow... meanwhile here is a festive bush...

  21. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your week of posts and are in awe of your stamina.

  22. Black mirrors is safe and sound on the PVR, waiting for a spare moment to be able to watch it. As for Christmas tree decorating – Given the choice I feel Christmas eve (next year) is still too soon Ba Humbug..... but since Mrs B gets a say ours went up on Saturday.....

    Boo hiss

    it's behind you

    oh no it isn't

    oh, yes it is

    sorry this comment seems to have morphed into a pantomime....

    it's behind you

    oh no it isn't

    sorry this seems to have

  23. No pressure then Scarls, having us all hoping for photos of whatever you are errecting now...

  24. Balck mirrors was an excellent extrapolation (not exfoliation) of the values we demonstrate in current life that it was horribly scary. Careful not to over exfoliate your bush or tree when decorating it....

    ReplyDelete
  25. I hope Black Mirrors is shown in Australia soon. sounds excellent.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't believe in this tree anymore. This tree is dead.

  28. What Mr Mags said. I think this is a case of the Emperor's New Clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've never been much of a fan of Charlie Brooker, but the Black Mirror series has been ace so far.

    I too have no Christmas decorations to speak of so far. Maybe I'll just tell everyone it's a minimalist statement.

  30. You just wait.... there will be pics tomorrow... pics galore!!!!
    Sxxx

    Would post them now but am phone bound and they would probably end up on FB or worse, Twitter.

  31. I'm feeling out of touch with everything. You post every day when I am not managing to read blogs. Please keep going once I'm not so busy.

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's been an experience! I might be popping up more frequently than I used to, Z. I've enjoyed it really.

  33. I don't watch tv, but maybe I should check this out.

    I've been working on our tree, reindeer, and bears in our porch, but the wind is so strong I decided to give up and have a large glass of port instead.

  34. Tree's up and this year I'm going to be more restrained and not deck it with every single decoration and piece of glitter I can find.
    What a swiz - it's quite old and drops bits just like a real one.
    BTW I also saw the first one - liked it and can't remember what it was about. The play I mean. Not a drop of liquor for ages and I can still burble on. Night night!

  35. I don't know about Black Mirrors, but over here on BBC America, Jeremy, on Top Gear, has just rolled a Robin 3-wheeled car for the 4th time and it is hilarious! Oh, I know, it's a rerun to you, but this is new to me.

    OK, he's just rolled it several times and landed in a river. HA HA HA!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My tree only goes up on Christmas Eve as well because the cat attacks it, thinking that there's something sinister in the way the baubles are looking at her.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mr Joey: I'd leave the outside decorating until the weekend if I were you... looks like we're in for a bit of a storm.

    Mr Mags: Ha! Proved you wrong!

    Mr Logs: Apologies I am all out of sync... did I ever tell you of the time I took the lead in Humpty Dumpty the Pantomime. I kid you not. I was eggstatic and everyone cracked up laughing.

    Dicky: Thank you... though I appear to be in a bit of a muddle at the moment.

  38. Macy: I have finished with the erecting!!!

    Wendy: My poor old tree has been exfoliaged enough!!
    Black Mirrors was excellent, I'm still thinking about it.

    Ms Nurse: Watch Black Mirrors if you get the opportunity, it won't disappoint.

    Savvy: The tree is up!!!
    This blogging marathon has revived my blogging vibe.. and this has surprised me.

    Nick: Ha! Proved you wrong... I was just a bit late.

    Andy: Did you also see Charlie Brooker's take on Big Brother? That was pretty good... think it was called Dead Set... and featured Davina McCall as a zombie - not to be missed.

  39. Pat: Fake trees are so good that they shed just like real ones. Mine made a mess.

    Do you mean the first Dark Mirrors? Well... for some reason I've still got an image in my head of David Cameron with a piggy. Less said... but it was good.

    Steve: Jeremy Clarkson.... he is someone I love to hate... and he makes me laugh even though I know I shouldn't. He is a git. but a funny git.

    Looby: My poor old tree has out lived 5 cats and a dog. I know what you mean, I miss watching my cats attacking the baubles... and the dog would just walk into it.
