Happy Halloween!





Not that we really do Halloween in this house. Sure, I stand at the front door and ward off small kids and teenagers by throwing sweets in their general direction, but we didn't ever let the girls go Trick or Treating. Because we're mean like that. But we did do apple bobbing occasionally. Fun!


So maybe this post should instead be titled :-



Halloween ..... and the Revenge of the Small Monkee


It was a day like any other. 007 was just sitting around the place, minding his own business, not realising that he was being spied on by HP6 (in my competition I inadvertently called that pink monkee HP6, but that's HP5. Heck, I've lost track where I am with these pesky monkees!)









..... you probably weren't, but just in case you were wondering, 007 was contemplating this sight ....




..... no, not the incredibly grubby glass ..... the Wood Pigeons!




Anyway. It struck HP6 as a good opportunity to pay 007 back for all the bad deeds he'd done to the stunt monkees over the last few weeks .....




Note the rather large pumpkin. Note the monkee with a chip on his shoulder. Note the perilously close to the edge position of said pumpkin.






Push!







..... note the unsuspecting monkee on the floor







What the ..... ?









Oh-oh .....








Arrrggghhhhh!!








Splut!








Note the squished monkee









..... mmmmfffffhhhhhh .....










What 007 was trying to convey there was " Don't worry about me, Monkee lovers, I'm fine ..... no really ....."





No lasting effect what-so-ever





So, if you happen to become the owner of a stunt monkee, watch your back. They may be small but don't let that fool you ..... they're trained in the art of self defence and pack a very woolly punch.



Talking of which, so that you won't have to keep checking back here and boosting my stats ..... heaven forbid! ..... I'm going to announce the winners of my giveaway and post a link to my shop at 4 o'clock this afternoon. That should give me time to add to the three pictures that are currently uploaded!



And by the way ..... does anyone know where I can buy a job-lot of knitted monkeys to palm off as my own because I don't think I have enough. Oops.

You'll be fine, you want to create demand not flood the market!! Good Luck, I'll be on a train at 4 so thats one less shopper.

Patti said...

Don't panic! Don't panic!

I'll still be in work at 4 - so that's another shopper down. Oh, I'm in work now! Maybe I will be able to stalk you after all.

Good luck.

Lucy Locket-Pocket said...

the vicious chicken said...

HAHAHAHAHA - oh, erm, sorry 007: obviously what I meant to say was "poor, poor 007!" (Giggle).

Anyway MM, I'm glad to see that you've trained all the stunt monkees to stick up for themselves :o)

Cyndilou said...

sharon said...

tintocktap said...

.... setting my alarm for 4pm ...... Perhaps you need some Monkee making apprentices?

Love your photos and the character you put into them darn monkees!

Studio Christine said...

aha.....monkee time is 11 hour behind Australia

means I have to stay up until 3 am.......

.......LONG night......

the things I do for monkees

this will, (potentially) be my first whole one....

Working Mom Knits said...

uuhhhhmmm...for those of us who are on the other side of the pond, so to speak, I'm guessing that 4pm in the UK is 11am USA (EDT) time?

Kae said...

4 o'clock!!!! Right... ok... must make master plan to squeeze 5 mins on the pc in... I CAN DO IT!!!! Lol :D

Btw... for those people on the other side of the pond... New York is 4 hours behind our time... and San Francisco is 7 hours behind (sowwy, can't work out your timezones lol) ... So that means

4 o'clock Uk time
= noon in New York
and 9am in San Francisco
(according to timeanddate.com)

~x~

P.S. Poor poor 007!!! Hope his facial ... ummm... distortion isn't permanent lol.

Viv said...

Is it 4 pm yet? The suspense is killing me...I cannot wait to find that I haven't won and am too late to get myself a genuine monkee in ye genuine monkee shoppe.
Yup. Perpetual optimist. My middle name.

trek said...

Great photos. Esp the one with the airborne pumpkin!

Frances said...

Brilliant! Thanks for brightening up my morning again!

Rosie said...

And there I was wondering what on earth to do with the pumpkin that arrived in the veg box last night...

lauren said...

holy moly stunt monkees are MUCH stronger than they look!!! :) (how oh how did you get the pics with the HOVERING PUMPKIN??!)

hooray for monkee-shoppe-opening delays! b/c maybe...just MAYBE...by the time i get home... there might maybe still be a monkee to be obtained!!! (oh happee happee monkee day!)

Melissa said...

I agree with WMK - it's 11am here. Wait, but WMK and I live in different time zones. Hmm. Are you under Daylight Savings Time yet? I seem to recall a post about this at VC's blog - must go look...

Melissa said...

Wait, are you telling me that one does give out candy for Halloween in England? I've been conned. I'd like to track that kid down who told me I needed to give him money. Of course, since he's probably close to 30 now, I suppose there's not much that can be done...

Anita said...

You are cracking me up! Those naughty monkees... And how do you take action photos of falling pumpkins?

jesi said...

Not that I'm trying to sway you or anything BUT my birthday is this Sunday and it's a big one (the dreaded 3-0) and a monkee made of knit would ease the pain!

Lesley said...

I just can't even begin to work out how you did that HP6 pushing the pumpkin off thing - or do they really come to life once they're stitched and stuffed?
Moog's got some giveaways Monkee Girl so pop by and leave your name on yesterday's (50th)post.
Good luck with the shop xxx

Working Mom Knits said...

4:00pm in Bristol is NOON in Maryland?!?!?!? The big shop opening party is exactly the time I am supposed to be hosting our office luncheon?!?!?!

*pondering* Job or monkees, job or monkees, job or monkees....such a dilemma...what ever shall I do?

trashalou said...

Am now officially more scared of stunt monkees than Crazy Aunt Purl's sociopathic dictator cat.

See you at four.

mrspao said...

Hehe - stunt monkees here I come!

Kate in Kent said...

Yay, Monkee "Murder, Mystery & Suspense" (my Saturday night favourite in the 80s, although it did leave me with a slight fear of mirrors)! Fabulous, thank you!
