W-W-W-WOW! May edition

Yes, it's the end of the month, so another edition of What the Wicked Witch Watched and Other Whimsies hits the stands. This time, due to Indescribable's nuptials on the 14th, it's a special wedding issue! And, yes, that's her on the wraparound front cover about to elbow her husband in the face. Actually, the background of the Features index is her, too. Well, her bouquet, Greek goddess-inspired frock and her decolletage - Don't worry, I faded it out a bit to spare you the horror.
Now, I had planned to return to blogging full time* at the beginning of this month, but I was under orders to make Indescribable's wedding cake, plus a birthday cake for a Work Hag's huntsman (not quite)hubby - you may see it in it's blood splattered gory glory below - as well as deal with our burgeoning vegetable patch - also below - and a clonked Car! All these tasks meant regular(ish) blogging went out of the window. Again. Perhaps I'll return in June?

Poor, poor bunnies. The fish? Meh. Whatever.

On the left: Vegetable patch as of 2nd May. On the right: 29th May, repleat with (from left to right, ignoring the pots full of lupin, hollyhock, lavender & foxglove seedlings) runner beans, peas, Little Gem & Iceberg lettuces, spring onions, carrots, more beans, a pumpkin, tomatoes, red & green curly leafed lettuces, a courgette, more peas and even more beans. I don't even like beans, so I hope SP is going to eat them all!

A clonked Car. Not clonked by me before you start pointing accusatory fingers. Car was waiting patiently for me to finish my swim and was unceremoniously reversed into by another Alfa. Luckily, we Alfisti stick together so the clonker left a note with her details which means Car should be as good as new imminently.

Actually, speaking of June (up there, before the photos), you may notice that the DVD for Attack of the Smug Marrieds is out in June. June 7th, to be precise, which is the Director's birthday, coincidentally.

And with that, I bid you a short goodbye. See you in June!

* That's full time for me, not everyone else's full time - i.e. two or three posts a week, give or take. Mainly take.


  1. Aw, you crossed my name out.



    That's rubbish about Car! I hope it's sorted ASAP!

  2. Oh, I like the looks of that bunny cake!

  3. It's crossed out in water soluble ink, so don't think you're escaping that easily - I have a moist cloth at the ready!

    Thanks about Car, though.

  4. Blood splattered bunnies on your birthday cake then, xl.

  5. I dread to think what the cloth is moistened with.

  6. I am most impressed with the May update. Bee-u-tiful wedding cake too, and Indescribable looks lovely from what I can see.

  7. Yeah, best not to, Tim.

    * carefully puts away OFFICIAL SPARKY TIM CUT OUT 'N KEEP ACTIONLESS FIGURE for another day *

  8. Ah, Snooze, you caught me by surprise (as xl did earlier)! Thank you. I must grudgingly admit that Indescribable did look lovely.

  9. A moist cloth?

    You mean a spooge rag?

  10. Excellent cake work Mr DeVice. Wedding Cake too! I think I need a subscription to WWW WOW. Just for the recipes of course...

    Oh... and the monthly Sparkly Tim Centrefold...

    I always admire you're delicate work with the staple gun... managing to avoid Tim's delicates like that...

    The wedding looks like it went off well then. Congrats to you for all your hard work and to the happy couple.

    Oh hai Tim... Xl... MJ...

    A hunter cake! Who would have thunk!

  11. I am most impressed with the bunny cake. Mistress MJ is in need of catering instruction, you must take her under your wing as I think she is about to do something weird with a lump of steak and lots of cheese.

    I still have to recover from her recent audio file.

  12. P.S I have moved. If you click on my profile then you can find my new home.


Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
