Saturday, May 3

And then there was the stair incident ....


Strange things are definitely afoot here at Monkee Towers. First there was the sabotaged balloon at the garden party and now this.

007 was sat innocently at the top of the stairs, pondering.





.... not pondering on how RGH manages to cycle on that a**e up, head down bicycle, but pondering on what might be the best way to get downstairs. Should he use the botty-slide-bump-down method or the reverse-twist-knee-over-knee action?

Please bear in mind that when you're a monkee made of acrylic knit, using either of these options to scale down equally synthetic stair carpet could result in some pretty nasty static shock episodes.

So he was still debating which would be the least statically charged option when suddenly he felt a hefty nudge in his back, and this happened ....

Gasp! The decision was taken out of his little knitted mitts!

When 007 had recovered and his head had stopped spinning, he looked up to see who could have done such a dastardly thing, but there was no one there. No one apart from ....





.... Greg .... DA DA DAHHHHH!!!

.... Greg?? But surely not!

Just who has got it in for 007? The mystery continues ....





Anyway, to lighten the mood and to make sure there were no hard feelings, we took them out. Can you guess where?






Yep. How'd ya guess?

In other (and yet oddly related) news, this weekend I shall be giving a little something back.

Giving a little something back to the man who gives me pleasure every single weekend and never lets me down.

Well, apart from that brief spell last year when he couldn't come up with the goods and much frustration ensued here at Chez Monkee Maker.





Mr Coffee#1 guy, this is for you ....


Calorie and caffeine free white chocolate and raspberry muffin and single shot skinny latte. Enjoy.




.... watch out though, because as ever, this muffin bites back ....




(yes, I am hoping to get a free muffin out of this. Is that wrong?)

007 may be in need a of a bodyguard if this keeps up.

Lesley said...

Greg did get to the scene of the crime remarkably quickly. There may be enough circumstantial evidence to build a case against him. The only other explanation is that you have a monkee hating poltergeist haunting monkee towers!

RGH's bike - does the blood rush to his head when he's astride? I could imagine one might experience a degree of numbness down under after a sprint on that saddle....

...which leads me nicely on to...


....great move making that fab woolly muffin and coffee mug MM. Your weekend treat from the muffin man is surely guaranteed :)

trashalou said...

Seriously? A knitted cofee one cup complete with foamy lattte top?! If that guy doesn't give you free muffins for life ...... maybe the Phantom Monkee Harrasser wil find his way 'round to that old Coffee Number One!!!!

Di said...

Hmm. mystery indeed!! Do you think Greg could possibly have done it????

Hope you enjoy the muffin!

Kitsch n Zinc said...

I find it very hard to believe that Greg could be responsible!! *Look of shock*

OMG @ that coffee mug! I didn't even notice at first it was indeed made of knit! Mrs Monkee Maker you are wasted ;o)

Marie said...

Thats it! I'm calling social services..... or maybe the RSPCA. This monkee abuse has to stop! :P

Maybe Greg was just in the wrong place at the wrong time? OMG. I can't believe I'm defending a wooly pigeon. Can life get much weirder than that? LOL

Lil' ol' me said...

OMG is 007 ok? He may need to leave Monkee Towers and come to live with me (for his own protection of course)in my middle of nowhere village. The Monkee hater (Greg?!)would never find him here, even the locals get lost trying to get home.
007 I am here if you need me, just call.

Manoute said...

Poor 007, I hope he doesn't have too many bruises! Who can do that to such an adorable monkey! I can't believe it is Greg.
I am please to see that the bike is safely kept inside. When we were in France, my partner's bike was sleeping with us in the bedroom (well, it was worth more than the car...).
That knitted coffee mug is great!
I wonder where you get the time and inspiration.
:0))))

Fantaberoonie knitted coffee-and-muffin combo, MM! I was wondering whether you'd finished it or not, actually - had a little look behind the cappucino machine last weekend when we popped in to C#1, but couldn't spot it. Will have to nip round later this weekend and see if they have it proudly on display :o)
VCxx

ps hope the free muffin thing worked out for you. They'd be churlish not to offer, really ;o)

pps I'm a little behind with blog-reading... but I see you mentioned before that RGH is doing a bike race thingy this weekend. So best of luck to him and I hope he enjoys all that unnecessary exercise. The crazy fool.

trek said...

Seems to me like all of the fellow monkee abuse is coming back to haunt 007. Have you checked to see if Greg is suddenly flush with cash and the other monkees' running round with empty pockets?

Sounds like a hit-pigeon job to me.

Kaz said...

Hhmm I'm not sure that Greg could do that on his own, he is a bit small. Are there any stunt monkees around getting vengence?

And as for you Mrs MM, how could you even think of getting a free muffin off anyone else?!! You're a married woman after all!!!

ps I think you should get one every weekend personally ;)

Jenifer said...

Monkeemaker you're cracking me up! I heard about your blog from a podcast and have cast on a monkey. I've noticed, though, that 007 is not reverse stockinette. Is that one of the changes you made or am I doing something wrong? He sure is cuuuuute. And, now that he has such character from your creative blog...
Look forward to hearing from you.

Nia said...

Well, I did try to warn you that pigeons are EVIL! It's obvious this rule still applies even when they're cute and made of knit....

Gigibird said...

I have just one thing to say to you mother of monkees -

Munchausen's by proxy

Rach said...

Poor 007 I hope he wasn't hurt, other than his bruised ego. How on earth does RGH ride that contraption I would go flying over the handle bars on that thing(gracefully of course). But before I would even climb on it the seat would need to be changed for a fat a**e one. x

Bethany Hissong said...

I'm betting on the pigeon! Even though he has a nice name, I still think they're dirty birds! Your mufffin and coffee cup are great... hopefully appreciated for the great things that they are!! (though my husband would wonder why they weren't the real thing?!!!). Glad to hear you have pleasurable weekends... the news was just reporting that we women don't enjoy such things... they were talking to the wrong women!!!!

Lucy Locket-Pocket said...

poor old 007 - how is he going to get over the humiliation? I don't believe Greg would hurt a fly, let alone a monkee made of knit - so who is the culprit???

Coffee#1 cup and muffin truly fabulous - if you do get muffins for life will you be sharing them with your loyal bloggy friends?

Jennie said...

I am GASPING at the horror of poor 007 getting pushed down the stairs!!
Love the muffin and coffee cup very much!!

Leanne said...

I don't think we can all jump to the conclusion Greg is guilty what happened to innocent until proven guilty........ Love the knitted mug and muffin I agree with above a years free coffee and muffins is reasonable.

Blossom said...

Now had it happened today...I'd have said Greg used 'the Force' being May the 4th and all that! :) I love that coffee cup...how did you do the logo so brilliantly...is it felted?? If you don't get free muffins for life then I'd send Greg over to sort them out! :)jlsil

Rosie said...

Uh, oh! I suspect that the stunt monkees are framing poor Greg. Love the coffee cup and muffin combo.

Kate in Kent said...

Wow, how the hell did you get those words on logo on the knitted mug? That is AWESOME! You are just made of clever!

Gina said...

Do you think Greg might have appeared so quickly so that he might save 007? No... me neither. That knitted coffee cup deserves a whole plate of free muffins.

Angela said...

Poor 007, did he recieve lots of tlc and muffins?. As for Greg- my money is on him.
Brilliant coffee cup and muffin by the way.

Jenifer said...

Monkee Maker, yes! You were talked about on a podcast. Stitch It podcast and you should check out the group on Ravelry. We're doing a knit along for the monkeys and 007 is the inspiration.

no it's not wrong, what is life without hope? ;)
