oh Monkee Maker, it's too early to laugh so hard!

If the relevant person refuses to take action please advise. I have traditional Australian recipe for Hedgehog.

And Peppermint Slice..... and White Christmas and Cherry Ripe Slice..........

VERA! I'm coming over now to rescue you. Let me just get dressed and get the bike out of the shed. My husband is in the SAS and he's getting all his mates to join in the rescue too. Do not panic. We will get you out of there, the Stella is busy cooling, and the rabbits are becoming increasingly worried for your well being.

Hold on tight, we're on our way.

Michaela

PS Is Bristol left or right down the A14?

it comes to something when a poor monkey has to have a gun to his head in order for you to get some more chocolate cake. is that monkey patern your own or what? poor Vera....she's going to be traumatised for life!

Sussex Yorkie said...

Brilliant, thats brightenend up my day no end.

Lucy Locket said...

Oh you cruel cruel girl! Monkey hostage crisis first thing in the morning, that's just too bad! I hope Michaela can pedal fast or Vera is in a very dodgy situation. Anyway if you eat more marble chocolate cake you won't be able to keep up with Rather-Gorgeous-Husband on your bike-rides-with-monkey-photos-and-raspberry-and-white-chocolate-muffins.
Then where would you be hey?

Lucy Locket said...

okay so blogger comments let me down.
It is meant to say "bike-rides-with-
monkey-photos-and-raspberry-and-white-
chocolate-muffins" but you need to put your own breaks in it otherwise it disappears off the side of the page and then it doesn't make sense at all! (I do normally make sense don't I? Please say I do!!)

P.S. If you are off work today it means you can post again before bedtime! Yay!
Ha Ha Ha

Maxine said...

So cruel, but so so funny!

Tracy said...

monkey torture all because of lack of cake......
i'm with you girl!
tracy x

the vicious chicken said...

We all know you wouldn't really hurt a monkee - but did you tell Vera that? Cos she looks genuinely worried to me!

How's the cake situation now - deteriorated any further?

Monkee Maker said...

You're too late, Michaela - too late!!

The cake has gone ..... and so has the monkey!

But happily only to the post office ;)

..... your husband isn't really in the SAS is he??

And Lucy? Get Lost! About the 2nd posting I mean ..... you are, sadly, quite accurate about the effects of too much cake consumption.

(I wanted to tell you to get lost on your blog but I thought your other readers may think me rude. I seem to have inadvertently been a tad rude on some other people's comments recently. Oops.)

the vicious chicken said...

My condolences for your loss on the cake front - I wouldn't have brought it up if I'd realised how dire things had become. Sorry.

If things get really desparate, we've got plenty of cake here as it's Wicked Wednesday. But you'd probably have to be quick as my colleagues are polishing it off quite fast (I'm helping too).

Thanks for your good luck re: this evening, which I'm firmly in denial about at the moment. Tug-of-monkey is not outside the realms of possibility, but I will try to restrain myself.

I can't believe that the cake lasted quite as long as it did anyway - would stand a chance at lasting more than 24hours around here. I had to reassure Herbert too that hedgehogs are not for eating - poor little sausage cam over all a-quiver!

Where oh where is Chief Deptuty Inspector Jane Tennyson* when we need her?!

ps: I thought you had to be AMERICAN to own fire arms.

Michaela said...

Have just passed a sign post saying 'Croeso y Cymru' - have I gone too far?

Vera!

Hang on in there, I'm coming.

Gigibird said...

Shoot the monkey!

The Devil Makes Work said...

Brilliant. You've made my day. Do you sell your monkees, I am desperate to have one.

Tracy said...

tut tut gigibird.....

Anonymous said...

Oh my how I love your blog. I have a cat called Monkey, she's not made of wool, just neurosis. Never stop. Gigi Birds neighbour

My Paper World said...

Too funny for words, poor Vera!

Lesley said...

I can fully understand your sense of desperation Monkee Maker but could you really have shot Vera - honestly, could you? Tho' it does look like the best chocolate cake ever and Vera will get over the shock - given time xx

trashalou said...

'Shoot the monkee!' Oh gigibird, Princess CurlyWurly and I were both in stitches this afternoon when we checked back. Seriously. Babyman was wondering how a six y.o would ever resuscitate both sister and mother. Tears, oxygen deprivation and (whispering) snot.

Umm the nine y.o. - not me honest!

mushroommeadows said...

Oh my goodness! Shame on you! :) :)

Rachel @ REvangeline Designs said...

You slay me! (and my husband)

Suzie Sews said...

YOU BAD WOMEN YOU!!!

Michaela said...

Fear Not Everyone.

Vera has arrived safe and well and she thanks you all for your good wishes (except Gigibird - your comments have left her trembling!)

She's been tucking in to the Champagne and chocolates so is now very much recovered.

Working Mom Knits said...

Wait a minute - are you actually taking a day off from blogging? Or is this just a cunning plan to get your site-meter numbers up because you know that we'd all check your blog 49,000 times in anticipation of a new post?

You are a sly one, Monkee Maker.

The Devil Makes Work said...

Hi Monkee,

I think you should lend me a monkee for a week for a holiday in Hastings. I can take some pics and then send him back. You can borrow my crow if you like......

rosie said...

Oh dear! Its only eight in the morning and now im filled with the NEED for a piece of chocolate cake! I really will start my diet tomorrow-lol.

Viv said...

OK, you did it. I succumbed - I actually never liked monkeys much (cuz of their striking resemblance to my maternal grandmother - don't ask...), but them monkees, they just did it. I am smitten now. And it's all your fault that I'm going to try my hands at (rather dilettantish) monkey-knitting sometime soon. I only hope I won't be the proud owner of a rather unpretty MM (Mutant Monkey) sometime soon. I'd be just as traumatized as poor Vera was (<-- pathetic attempt of keeping this comment on topic. Yeah. I know.)

lauren said...

HA! i am not falling for this, not for one second! VERA was totally in on the stunt...with the promise of half said ransom cake...and enough milky tea to wash it down!

...come to think of it...that is **BRILLIANT**! do you think it would work with a shi-tzu and chocolate chip cookies...??!

Kelly said...

The cake looks good. Hope the monkey's okay! LOL

Working Mom Knits said...

Ssshh - I just had a cafe mocha and a raspberry/white choc chunk scone - DO NOT tell my husband!!!

SuzyB said...

Yep, the dog is attached to the cushion. Im gutted it wasnt a monkee, just for you, but Ive just had a thought of something I can post on my blog just for you... leave it with me :o) x

yvette said...

So funny, you made me laugh so much no3 son came to find out why, now he wants a knitted monkey for christmas.
Glad to hear Vera made it to safety at Michaelas house, champagne and chocolate sounds like a great way to recover from truama!

Giggle :)

trek said...

No monkees were harmed in the making of the post - but how about after it was done?

;o)
