Pretty in Pink…

Inever thought I’d see the day when Mr Devine’s blog turned pink… I have rivers of mascara down to my chin… it started with a giggle, and finished with sobs of mirth. I am so sorry, but thank you Dinah, and thank you Mr Devine…. my endorphins are replenished.

When two blogs collide…

Maybe, it was a case of having to be there… but it tickled me. Right, I need to compose myself into something sensible….

*UPDATE* 4th May 2018

My efforts to compose myself have been in vain, and due to the sobbing and general gasping of breath, Sid will no longer stay in the same room as me… anyhow, here is a screenshot, taken on my iPad, of the pink vastness with Mitzi’s blog attached to it…

Mitzi in pink….

Oh, an opportunity for favourite tune…

    I was also surprised by the large size of the preview pic of Dinamow’s post on IDV’s site. Every now and then, the internet does something unexpected. Perhaps it’s a sign of emerging AI.

    I saw the film with the same name as the post title and song name. Thanks for the intro to a new song for me. Cheers!

      Yes, this is from the same film, Mr Swings – a little eighties nostalgia!
      I think the large picture size is an incompatibility problem between WordPress and Blogger. In WordPress there is an option to include a feature image with each post – it looks fine and dandy on the WordPress blog, but overpowers the Blogger sidebar!
      I feel really bad now for drawing attention to it!! I shall send myself to the naughty step for a couple of weeks 🙂

      Mistress B – Same here! I just got the green eye when I saw Mr Devine’s orchids and distracted myself by pointing at the huge bear, balloons, and pinkness….

        I’ve had tears streaming down my face, on and off, all day! I’ve even been asked why I’m laughing…. I hope I recover by tomorrow. Thank you!

    Had to skip over to IDV’s place to see the BIG PINK before I could comment here! Thanks for the music and the movie reminder! I always thought Andie should have realized that Duckie was the guy for her and not Blane! xoxox

      Savvy – you are so right about Andie and Duckie, I thought this too.
      Meanwhile, I have seen your comment at Mr Devine’s and it has set me off again! What is wrong with me? I am usually laid back about these things!

    Pink balloons and teddy bears? Such rampant frivolity, this will have to stop. The blogosphere will never live it down.

    I hope you’ve recovered from your unseemly mirth without doing yourself a nasty injury.

      Nick – I am still giggling and getting stupider by the minute, if that’s possible. The kipper will have to come out so somebody can slap me.

    I’m so sorry, Mr Devine, but I have been a giggly wreck since visiting your blog this morning. All the laughing has actually given me a headache…let’s hope Dinah will think twice about featuring her pink bits in future! Also, if Dinah doesn’t publish again soon you might have the oink for a few months!

    It appears that not only is the internet drawn to cats, it has a taste for pink balloons and teddy bears. I took a dive through a few links and discover this whole pink mystery is about a writer giving witty advice to other want-a-be writers. At least that’s where I ended up.

      Apologies, Bill, for the magical mystery tour! Yes, Dinah had linked to another blog, and this is where the huge pinkness came from… it is still making me giggle every now and then, but thankfully I’m recovered from yesterday.

    Given that mass of pinkness over at Dinah’s, I think your typo of ‘oink’ actually fits right in, Scarlet!! I had a good chuckle reading her link. Whenever I laugh out loud at something, my cats look at me like I have lost my mind. Maybe I have, but at least I enjoy myself! xoxo

      Sid has left me, Ponita, I’ve been laughing so much… that sort of laugh where it’s difficult to breath. Deary me. I have added a screenshot from Mitzi’s blog… which has made me go quite stupid again. I don’t know why this has affected me so much?!!!

      Exactement, Mr Mags!! I am having to slap myself as it has all made me quite hysterical and unseemly. And I haven’t even been drinking.

      Monsieur Pain – I saw them too! In about 1984! I have most of their albums.
      Ack, enough with the oldie thing! Look at how stupid and childish I have been this week… this post is testament to my regression!

      I have sorted my replies out, M.Pain, so that the thread makes sense. I did some further research and discovered that ‘shizzle’ is Jewish, although the Jewish version is spelt differently… and now I can’t find the link…

    It matches nicely with Margo’s pink dress and the pink scratch card. I watched the Psychedelic Furs video last night and before I knew it an hour had passed, I went from Pretty In Pink to the Farmhouse Kitchen’s Fruity Flute theme tune.

      The Fruity Flute is certainly a contrast, Mitzi!
      And please let me apologise for my juvenile behaviour last week. All the pink had a strange effect on me.

      I am recovered, Eryl!! The pink vastness has gone! I kind of miss it… although Sid is happier that I’m no longer shaking and snorting. I have no idea what got into me!
