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?

Answering back-arsewards...what is the 104 challenge?
Yes, I do see a theme. A dark, disturbing theme. Goody!
That was my favourite Tale, too!Actually, all were good.

Dinah: Erm.... the 104 challenge is the sort of lightweight version of the 365 challenge... me being a lightweight an'all :-)
Yep, all those tales were brilliant.

Its almost impossible not to perform the fire dance in stockinged feet whilst listening to this, brings back so many memories. As does this *shudders*

Princess said...

It's not quite the same as this is it...

Scarlet Blue said...

Savvy: I think I woke up in a strange mood :-)

Scarlet Blue said...

Mitzi: Oh I remember Picture Box... how come it sounds ominous now but back in the day it simply meant a 30 min break from schoolwork?

Scarlet Blue said...

Prinny: Blimey, you have really spooked me out... I had this saved in draft to post today, but changed it at the last minute. Not kidding.

Theme: References that go over my head!

Did I win yet?

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Lax: I am feeling the need to post you something. I have several parcels to take to the post office (yes, the FGES are finally almost on their way) so I might send some paper ephermal to you. Much better than FB.

Scarlet Blue said...

Of course I meant ephemera.

Mitzi said...

Probably because we weren't old enough to appreciate a rotating glass casket.

The presenter was as creepy as the music!

B-u-x said...

I used to love Tales of the Unexpected...I used to scare myself witless watching it and well remember that episode where the bloke ended up in the freezer.

I'm so enjoying seeing you back here Ms S, you make it all feel more worthwhile again :-)

Your tendency to go astray is one of the main reasons that I follow you! However giving up on daily posts, on your second daily post is more than going astray it's like darting from the path down an alleyway. Exciting, but I have to wonder if the path was every really truelly an option.

If the 104 posts requires exactly 104 posts then you cant do both, but if the 104 posts requires at least that number then you can do both. But you knew that, and I can't believe that I fell for your question and explained how it works.

Meanwhile YAY whatever next?!

Scarlet Blue said...

Bux: You are very lovely! And it's good to see you here.

Scarlet Blue said...

Wendy: I added them together and made 469 posts and then my brain exploded :-)
Ack, I am way too lazy to do 365 posts... it was a nice idea though. I am committed to the 104 Challenge though. I have posts about seagulls, one about a French waiter.... and of course there are the Friday flushes.

I think just about anything in my freezer would be a perfect murder weapon. I'd be spoilt for choice. The rock-hard naan bread perhaps. Or the rigid pizza. Or the frozen rolls of puff pastry. The burglar would be out like a light in a second.

The trouble with the frozen bottle of milk is having to sweep up all the milk and broken glass afterwards. Of course the burglar might help if he was still alive.

Lulu LaBonne said...

That brings back memories, this 365 business is impressive. lovely xx

Scarlet Blue said...

Nick: You are a silly Nick! The milk comes in a plastic bottle!
I will from this day forth always imagine you wielding a rock hard naan bread.

Scarlet Blue said...

Lulu: Oh Lulu, don't get too excited... I have already downgraded to the 104 Challenge, which seems a whole lot more manageable!

Claire said...

Ah who's counting? xx

Scarlet Blue said...

Claire: Good grief... I've just realised that I only wrote 17 posts for this blog in 2012!! I will aim for 104. I thought it was more than 17.

LX said...

I'm no lawyer, but perhaps you could do the 104 and 365 at the same time! Sort of like criminals serving concurrent 99-year and 37-year sentences!

Kevin Musgrove said...

Ken Barlow's brother! And he had very scary jumpers

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha, giving up already, you've only just started! Nope I'm expecting to see a post here every day now!

I'm wondering how much damage my frozen French stick would do?

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Lax: I have been given a suspended sentence, hence I only have to do 104 community posts.
Sx

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Joey: A frozen french stick may be good for poking, but I have yet to gather information as to whether it would be suitable for murder.
Ack.... you know what a lazy old blogger I am!

nick said...

So it does, for some reason I thought of glass. There'd still be an awful lot of milk everywhere. Unlike the naan bread.

Scarlet Blue said...

But the milk is frozen within a plastic bottle, Nick, frozen as a solid object, the plastic would not break on impact hence no milk would escape. Shall we test my theory? :-)
Sx

Scarlet Blue said...

...I mean, I'm not going to ask my intended victim to sit patiently at the kitchen table whilst the milk thaws out...
Sx

nick said...

I'm pretty sure the plastic WOULD break on impact. I've had leaking bottles before now. And if the bottle collided violently with a human being....

Naan bread is definitely more reliable. A few crumbs maybe....

Scarlet Blue said...

Give it up Nick! Or I'll hop of the ferry to Ireland to test my theory :-)
