Half-Arsed...


 I wish it hadn't been so long since I last blogged, as I am now right out of the habit, and finding it all a bit overwhelming.  Plus, it looks like you've all been really busy, so I've got loads of catching up to do (this is more a pleasure than a chore, mind).  To make matters worse, I have several things that I want to pin down here, but I can't remember them all, and the ones that I do remember, I can't really be arsed to make the effort required to [can't think of the right word/s - I'll come back to this].

 Well, I think I'm going to do some bullet points of the topics we should have blogged about since the beginning of the month then, if you make interested noises, we'll devote a whole post to the subject at a not-too-much-later date.  How's that?


  • The DeVice Mansion (or "Hexenhäusli deVice", as Mr Mago suggested), including curtains and garden guests.
  • "Shhhhh!  They're strapping down Liza Minelli." - Which pop culture words or quotes have entered your vocabulary?
  • Ms Scarlet's birthday.  Drat!  Too late...
  • Disco Maroons - A mish-mash of Star Trek styles (a bit late for this, too, as it was supposed to be for the February Art Challenge.  Nevermind, I can recycle it for March's.  If I can get it done within a week...)
  • Bryce's Bum and other Perfectly-formed Posteriors - Basically, this is just perving over some of the best bottoms in Star Trek Discovery (ZOMG!* Have you seen Ethan Peck Spock's bum in that space suit?!?)
  • A couple of day drifts (including today's foray along the beach)
::

This is Friday's afternoon tea (try and ignore The Father's sausage fingers on the left - they weren't part of it)

::

* I don't know what this means.  I mean, the OMG must be "Oh My Gods", but as to the Z... Anyone?

  1. Why yes....I did miss my tall glass of water!!!! I have been busy learning boylesque. Hey... I like dancing and don't mind not wear clothes. Now is this tea party of your work??? It's very pretty indeed. You'll be the next Barbara Cartland.

    1. You know, we could have done with a show while we had tea. Can I book you for next time?
      And, no, the tea was provided at The Pheasant hotel in Kelling, not by my own hand (although I do have a similar cake stand. Two, in fact...)

  2. Oh! When was Ms. Scarlet's birthday? Also: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=zomg

    1. Ah, thank you for the ZOMG explanation link, Rimpy.
      Ms Scarlet managed to overcome the ravages of ageing again back on the 9th.

  3. Ooh - I am ganting (as Mitzi might say) for a nose around your soft furnishings, now that you seem to have settled in to such a degree that you have laid out a meal Brian Sewell (RIP) might sit down to without wincing! Jx

    1. You might have to wait a little longer, as those dratted curtains still aren't up. The blinds are though!
      Oh, and I'm getting free electricity at the mo: I wired up Brian Sewell's spinning corpse to a turbine!

  8. Happy Day dearie. A phrase that recently entered my orbit? Some person of the street recently yelled "No monkeys, no problem" as I was passing by. Was he addressing me or the sidewalk or just the general lack of monkeys? We'll never know.

    1. How peculiar? Could this street oik have been a visitor from London, perhaps?

    1. Thank you, Mago. Yes, it was my birthday tea as paid for by The Parents.

  10. Oh I do like the crockery! You think you've forgotten how to blog??? It took me an effort to even sign in to Blogger. I shall now smooth down my skirts, un-ruffle myself, and indulge in a chocolate finger. I take it that you DO have a chocolate finger??? No high tea should be without one.
    Sx

    1. Le gasp! My birthday tea was devoid of chocolate fingers!!! I've been diddled (and not with a chocolate one)!

  11. *looks up the word 'ganting' still none the wiser*

    High camp high tea and not a blow tickler in sight. My maid puts on a good spread mainly shop bought pig fat laden comestibles and cocoa solids for herself and French macaroon and marzipan fruits for myself.

  12. I want to see bums. And the DeVice mansion. And bums.
    You're not related to Alexxa Vice are you?

    1. I was about to say that these bums are all clothed, but I've just remembered an instance of a derriere devoid of drapery from ST: Discovery, so you shall see bums, dear Hound. You shall see bums.

      But not if you continue to associate me with that strumpet (I had to google her)!

  13. I like Hexenhausli. (with or without an umlaut)
