Sunday, October 7

Meanwhile ..... in the conservatory ......


...... a new HP monkee was being introduced ......



HP5





Well, I say new, but she's actually been around for a while ......





Here she is, gossiping with Vera, before Vera split (...... not literally I hope, Michaela)





Anyway, when 007 heard there were a couple of new stunt monkees for the sack, he was keen to help them in there as swiftly as possible .......


...... with the aid of a broom.






Just helping you out. You can thank me later.




Luckily, HP4 was hanging around and was happy to lend them a hand .......

Come on up - the view's great!


....... by throwing down the scarf that he'd been sleeping on ..... don't worry - it's not a hand-knit ......

(good job too, as by this stage 007 had moved on to pointy needles)




..... VERY pointy needles .......

Go on, Pinky, get in there!




He watched and waited and prayed that HP4 would fall ......
....... to a knitted grave




But eventually all the stunt monkees were safe from the evil clutches of 007 ......

Good. They're where they belong. In a bin bag.





Hmm. There's just something not quite right .......











That's better



So. Another couple of stunt monkees have been tossed into the sack, and I'm just slightly concerned that at this rate it's going to take me years to fill it up. I'm thinking maybe I need a new - smaller - stunt monkee sack. I'll give it some thought.

Oh, and trek? You're right of course, it is a wonder how I ever actually manage to get any knitting done as I do love a good photo op. (although that last one wasn't mine, honest), but look .....



see how I suffer for my art - those trousers? Black. That rug? Seriously moulting. That hoover? Lost. (In RBD1's bedroom I think). Those slippers? £2, Primark. Don't judge.

No, Vera hasn't split. She is a bit worried about the prospect of moth holes though and is now dousing herself in lavender oil, and generously sprinkling herself with cedar wood talcum powder.

She helped me make some of that chocolate cake yesterday, and is proving a dab-hand in the kitchen.

Giggle :) 007 is naughty but nice!

You know...there#s a huge demand of Stunt Monkees in Germany (particularly in Hamburg - where yours truly happens to live). One of them could travel here, all expenses paid, of course, and start a fantastic career. Think about it. Rumour has it, the demand for oo7-Mini-mes is particularly high.

Geez..it's Subtlety Sunday again...

Thanks MM for my Sunday morning dose of snorting with laughter! Love 007's sign-adaptation! Lucy x

P.S my word verification today is "qwwuic" - do you think that's monkey -speak for "Run - he's got a pointy stick now!" ???

Hey, I've just realised - it's Monkee Cluedo, isn't it? I guess 007, in the conservatory, with the pointy knitting needles. Do I win?

I think 007 isn't trying to 'get' the stunt monkees; he's merely helping them practice to become fully fledged stunt monkees - just think of all the dangerous situation a SM could face... Well done, 007!!!! :D

On the funkee monkee front... there's progress :D I've got an eyeless funkee slug now lol. I shall help it to some arms, legs and ears today... oh, and eyes :D

ROFLOL!!

Nia said...

Wow- 007 can write! Is there no end to his talent?! x

Angie said...

Lovely post and fantastic monkees. Thank you for the humor!

mushroommeadows said...

stunted monkeys? hehe :) By the way, I love your outfit; it looks comfy.

Lesley said...

Nice hairy trousers Monkee Maker and thanks for the Stunt Monkee fix. I think I'm starting to find 007 a bit menacing - no wonder Vera was happy to move to Michaela's!!

My Paper World said...

Fab stuff! Love the pics of the monkees climbing up the sack! so Funny!

I just discovered your site on a 16 day long business trip. I made myself ration the archives. They were the highlight of some very loong days. I am SO making myself an HP-hlg1.

Melissa said...

That 007 - he cracks me up. We had a bunch of bananas here in danger of becoming overripe, so I was forced to make banana bread tonight. I think we may need a few stunt monkeys here to help with the banana situation...

...o'course...with size 13 needles and really chunky wool...you could FILL the sack with *ONE* monkee!!! (...just tryin' to help...)

julie said...

007 has obviously had fame and adoration go to his head - don't worry though 007 there's enough monkey love out here for a whole warehouse of monkeys made of knit! Maybe you could get a spinning wheel and start putting your rug moult to good use - you might get a new monkey out of it?

the vicious chicken said...

Nice try m'dear, but no - Delaware is staying put, so hands off! I'm afraid you're just going to have to fill up that sack of stunt monkees on your own.

You wouldn't want him, anyway. He's not house-trained.
