Another post generated....

Blimey! I just got slapped with a wet salmon - really - I have not updated this since you last visited... You would not believe my anguish at my misdoings. Unbelievable.
I am distracted with setting fire to people wearing Crocs, soaking in the tub, just generally being a nuisance to anyone unfortunate to cross my path, my day goes from midday to midnight. I am not growing up. but who cares.
I absolutely, positively promise I will write something that makes sense soon. I promise! This is for my ever faithful, devoted public..

Many thanks to this handy gadget 
the Bloggers Post Generator

And to Sue Simpson

Obviously this gadget will be a helpful tool for dealing with all the blogging challenges that I am tackling at the moment.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!!!

It has taken me about 40 minutes to suss out how to post Youtubes on my iPad.... and actually it's simple, much simpler than it used to be on the big PC, but I think the simplicity confused me.
But now I can't publish, and my blogger bits and pieces seem to have jammed... or have gotten gooed up with creme egg....
Arrrrgggh, this is driving me insane.... no wonder MJ has gone on an extended blogging break....

Erm.... where did that YouTube go??? Oh I give up. I need champagne and chocolate to recover from this debacle.

This is a Scarlet Blue service announcement.


I hope this clears up any confusion.

Although, the 345.54 sounds up my street...

Unexpected Freezer Tales

1. Instrumental Music

My favourite Tale of the Unexpected was the one where the murderess clumps her husband over the head with a frozen leg of lamb and then thaws the meat and feeds it to the investigating detective. I keep a 2 pint bottle of milk frozen in my freezer just in case.

2. Random Calligraphy

There is only one thing worse than being talked about.... and that's being talked about because you keep a frozen bottle of milk in the freezer just in case you need a handy murder weapon.

3. Quote from mailbox

I usually get caught out by good looking men... I once ended up with a freezer full of fish thanks to a very good looking man...

My freezer isn't big enough to store good looking men. Sadly.
Some of you may have noticed that today's 365 post has a theme. Can you spot what it is?

Other news:- I am already bored with my self imposed framework... and I may stray from it a bit... some days I may rebel and not write anything at all... but just because I haven't posted doesn't mean that I am not winning the 365 challenge. Plus, I have just accepted the 104 challenge and I can't do both, can I?

1. Instrumental Music

Given that my sound is compromised on this computer, I hope this is the correct piece of music, otherwise this post is ruined and I will return sobbing to my still warm bed, thwarted by my first real 365 post.

2. Random Calligraphy

3. A quote from my mailbox

Please note that I will not be quoting from any private messages sent to me [unless it's too funny not to!]. I may quote from messages I send or comments I receive because I subscribe to comment feeds. And I also get stuff like this:-

She got the unԁerѕtanding from cooking ρionеer Barbaгa Κerr.
Warm air balloon гіdes аbοut the gorge are also awfully sought aftеr.
The wall panеls саn be introduced in hallwaуs, doorωayѕ,
and shining straight aѕ a dаnce floor.

This piece of spam was heading straight for my blog... I sat and read it over and over and thought about the warm air over the gorge... sheer poetry, this spammer is wasted and should get a blog.

The 365 Challenge.

Eryl, Leah, and Savannah are all doing it, and I admit it, I am tempted. My curiosity is piqued. Could I possibly keep it up for 365 days? Could I keep it up for a week? Could I keep up... or even keep upright?
If I do, then I need a theme... or at least a framework. Yes, a framework.... off the top of my head my framework is that each post will include the following:-
1. A piece of instrumental music.
2. A quote from my mailbox
3. A random piece of calligraphy

I am giving up my calligraphy blog so pieces of random calligraphy may as well go here... and I may have interludes from this framework and write indepth reviews about public toilets.
You don't think I can do this do you...? But I am feeling quite excited about the prospect at 8.30pm on a Sunday evening... how I'll feel about this at 8.00am on a Monday morning is anyone's guess.
We shall see.
