Loose ends

I thought I'd better tie up the loose ends before the year is out, so, without further ado, I will.

Consequences: Game 2

Beast met her royal highness Queen Elizabeth II at the fish counter in Walmart. He wore a Lone Ranger mask, chaps and boots, and she wore nothing but a smile. He said "Can't read my, Can't read my, No he can't read my poker face (She's got to love nobody)". She said "What makes you think that I liked it when you showed me your Willy?" And the consequence was that they were both forced to watch Ellen Degeneres in the throws of passion.

This game almost died a death, but luckily Princess sashayed onto the scene for the penultimate part, and I utilised Eros' guess for Wednesday, 23rd December film quote title, to finish it off, so SNAPS to him even though he didn't guess correctly. The quote is actually from A Fish Called Wanda. John Cleese's character's wife says it to their daughter when they're about to leave their house.
Needless to say, I won't be doing another one of these in a hurry.

Items of Interest: Saturnalia edition

The item of interest was guessed correctly by Eros, with: "It looks like a smooth, shiny, polished ball--one that hangs on a Xmas tree." Your effort shall not go unrewarded, Eros, but as I have yet to find a suitable prize, you may have to wait a week or so.
Here're a couple of photos of the item in its natural habitat at Castle DeVice:

All that's left is to wish you all a happy new year just in case I don't get time to conjure up my usual Coven Awards on the 31st, and to apologise for my lacksadaisical and somewhat sporadic posting this year - I'll try and do better next year.


  1. That story about Beast and the Queen?

    It's not a game.

    It's all true. Yes, it really happened just the way you said.

    Coven Awards!
    *jumps up and claps hands in excitment*

  2. The tree's nice but I didn't need to see your loose end - ba-dum-tish!

    Do the coven awards or I'll have you hexed.

  3. Coven awards!


    Oh by the way, why didn't I win? I never ever win. Dammit!

  4. Dang it, I thought that quote was from a Fish Called Wanda, but I wasn't sure.

    Still, Wooo-hooo!!! I win!

    Very lovely tree. It looks like it has a dusting of snow on it. The decorations are fantastic, and the ornaments go well with the decor. It looks pretty cool lit up, too--like stars and moonlight wrapped around the tree!

    Is that Liz on the mantle!?! You really are British!

    Happy New Year, IDV!!!


  5. Too bad that I noticed this post with the result... after I tried my semi scientific approach on that blurry picture!

    Well have a nice 2010! :)

  6. Dear Mr De Vice,
    I'm very glad that my sashaying assisted in your game, As for that other Queen, She'll do it with any thing Just look at old Phil, Beast was probably a lust filled delight compared to her usual fair.

  7. CyberPoof: Why can't you be happy with winning the High Maintenance Queen Compo?

    Not everyone got sticky notes, you know.

  8. YAY coven awards.
    ***claps like a special***
    What was I doing at the fish counter , when I dont like fish , it was obviously an imposter!

  9. MJ: You know, I thought it didn't sound far-fetched enough?

    Tim: Next time we'll turn the lights off, then.

    'Petra: See reply from MJ, and stop stamping your foot!

    The three of you, plus BEAST: Oh dear. So I really have got to do the Coven Awards? I'd better snap to it as I haven't done any preparation at all!

    Eros: Thank you for the tree compliments - It's the first time SP & I have had a tree in 10years!

    And that is indeed Liz up there. She sent us a card with "Happy Christmas, peasants!" on it. Charming.

    Mark: Well, at least you tried, unlike some of the lazy slackers around here.

    Happy New Year to you, too!

    Princess: I think she may have worn Beast out!

    MJ: He's so high maintenance that he's never happy.

    BEAST: Don't you like winkles, then?

  10. Just stopped by to wish you a Happy New Year, IDV (and SP& Moom!)!!!


    P.S. You don't have to get me anything too big/expensive to mail as a prize. Just send me a postcard from your part of the world! I'd like to see one from the UK! Cheers!

  11. Dear Mr DeVice,
    I hope that you are working off that cute little butt of yours getting those coven awards organised and not waisting precious time cavorting around on NYE. As you know, Time waits for no man nor Princess. I saw your refernce to my deep feelings and would just like you to know that I Have found the Perfect assistant for tonight thank you!
    Oh and by the way... I'm keeping an Eye On You!

    Love Princess XXX

    Oh.. and 2010 is looking good!

  12. Oh, you'll get what's coming to you, Eros!

    And a Happy New Year to you too!

    Princess: A witch's work is never done. Well, it is now - I've finally got the damned Coven Awards finished.

    I thanks the gods it's still 2009 here in Britland - I know 2010 has already hit the shores of Oz and I'm glad to hear it's looking good!


Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
