Sifting through the remains
Yes, it's time to sift through the aftermath of the Barbara Cartland explosion and reveal the winner of Saturday's Items of Interest competition.
First, here's a list of what it wasn't:
A Barbara Cartland Hairnet®, as put forth by xl.
Angora throw? Plastic troll's hair? Mesh hair roller? The ever despairing guesses of Savannah.
A lovely new merkin. Yes, thank you, Princess.
A pair of your power fishnet stockings, and
The collar of your bathrobe/dressing gown, suggested by 'Petra.
It's your inner ear! Um, no, Tim.
Has Babs been eating Ma Beasties chick pea curry again? No, no she's had her rug dyed to match the curtains.. Another delightful 'guess' by Princess.
It's my scrunched up negligee...
...or it might be chicken wire for some very glamorous chickens? On this occasion, Miss Scarlet, it's neither.
Neither is it Moom's blankie, Snooze.
Nor is it inside a furnace filter or the neural network of cotton candy, Tara.
Your colon after a particularly effective colonic irrigation? Back for another try eh, Tim? You needn't've wasted your pretty little brain...
And, finally: Is it the debris left after Barbara exploded? A pile of pretty pink ashes, another 'guess' from Princess.
So, here is what it actually is:
And the winner is, with the first correct guess of:
It's your loofah and frankly, it disgusts me to think where it's been, MJ!
Congratulations! And I shall ignore your disgust because, as the photo caption states, it's SP's, not mine.
* pokes tongue out in defiance *
I shall have a prize of some description mailed out to you within the week.
The venerable runners up are:
I think it might be one of those "nylon netting shower pom pom on a string thingamies" that old grannys make for their fundraising stalls. Just lather it up and your away (Princess),
I know I know! Well, MJ actually got it pegged with the loofa ('Petra),
It's one of those things!!! Erm... a body mop! Makes everything extra foamy... (Miss Scarlet),
It does look like those loofah bath scrub/cloths or a special dishwashing scrub--I've one of those for cleaning nonstick pans! (Eros).
Thank you all for taking part, and jolly well done! Splendid show etc, etc.
Right, better be off - I do have other things to do besides blogging, you know!
