Sunday Music – The Official Version!!!

It has come to my attention that Mr Mags is no longer taking the responsibility of hosting Sunday Music seriously. Sometimes Sunday Music turns up on a Monday, or worse, Tuesday. THIS IS JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH. We need consistency. We deserve better. We need to be able to come together at regular intervals to reflect; to think about the week ahead, behind, above, beyond, and last Thursday. Mr Mags is NOT fulfilling is duties as proprietor of the event, so I am staging an intervention. From now on I will be the hostess with tea and crumpet on a Sunday; I will select an appropriate tune; I will say something fitting about the philosophy of baking products, or knitting, or the battle of Hastings. It will all happen HERE. ON A SUNDAY. EVERY SUNDAY.

To begin my reign, I bring you this:-

And now let us reflect, and hope for a peaceful week ahead.

    Tea and crumpet…what? just ONE crumpet to share among all of us? And before anyone says that crumpet, without an article, means another kind of crumpet…the same response applies. Our name is legion and we are many…
    Oh dear, I seem to have got in a bit of a bugger’s muddle, don’t I?
    I shall just go back and play your music again…

      Dinah – Hmmmm, you raise an interesting point. I will ponder it. Probably best to just listen to the music and ignore my ramblings. It is still early here.

    Wot, just one crumpet, no coffee, no cherry bakewells, no peppermint Aero? Such spartan fare isn’t quite ticketyboo. And the promised commentary on the Battle of Hastings hasn’t materialised. Most disappointing. However, the popular ditty still hits the spot after so many years. “You choose your leaders and place your trust, As their lies wash you down and their promises rust” Indeed.

      Nick – Sadly this tune continues to be relevant, whichever decade it’s played in.
      All I can say is that I have a very big crumpet. And there will be butter. Why didn’t I just lay on the scones and ignite the debate about what goes on first – jam or cream?

        But please make sure it’s proper clotted cream. None of yer plastic squirted-out-of-a-can stuff.
        Oh, wait! I suppose Elfin Safety say you can’t have clotted cream now? Back to your big crumpet then.

    I share Dinah’s misgivings about the singularity of the crumpet, and suspect a wilful act of linguistic devilment. All the same, jolly nice with Jam.
    Hmm, Bakewells and crumpet … why is a little bell ringing at the back of my mind?

      Never mind, Mr Auty, I have given you an edit. I DO like Binnie Hale!! I imagine this is how Mitzi sounds when she is asking her maid of works, Carmen, for a beverage. I will gloss over The Scones, with icing sugar.

        Years of smoking in my youth has scuppered any chance of a successful singing career I sound more like Lemmy than Binnie Hale. Saying that though, I once sang a rousing rendition of Stand By Your Man at the Bay Horse many years ago I could see the audience covering their mouths with their hands, tears in their eyes and their shoulders shaking, overcome with emotion.

        Do you pronounce scone ‘scone’ or scone?

        My voice has the same effect on an audience, Mitzi! I bring them to their knees! It beggars belief that I haven’t been offered a recording contract.
        I used to say ‘scone’ as in cone, but recently I’ve switched to ‘scon’ as in on. I don’t know why?

      Indeed! I was ready and waiting, Mr Lax!! This Cream tune puts me in mind of the film Still Crazy about a legendary fictional band called Strange Fruit. Have you seen it? It has its moments! And features the wonderful Bill Nighy – he has the best scenes!

      P.S Is Mr Mags okay? I haven’t seen him about for a while, I hope this is because he is having fun travelling to his favourite places.

    Cripes! Sunday Music on a Sunday?? I thought I’d have another two or three days, yet. I’m not prepared. I’m not prepared!!

    * starts to comfort-eat the butter curls for the absolutely enormous crumpet (but doesn’t even look at the butter stick for fear of another Infomaniac House of Beauty “incident”) *

      Mr Devine – Yeah, let’s try to NEVER refer to the butter stick incident – after all, it was nothing that a light dusting of talcum powder couldn’t cure. Ahem.
      Please be prepared next Sunday, Mr Devine. I am under instructions from Jon to provide sequins and baubles, so you have been warned. That is all.

      I know, Bill! I will be hiding from the news this week, that’s for sure….or will I? Or will I just be staring at it totally agog? Probably.

        THERE WERE WARNINGS IN THE WEEK PRIOR!!! Which, I believe, permits me carte blanche or even, carta blanca, to do what I like.
        AND, I can still show my European credentials in italics!!!!!

      Mitzi – It seems that your fresh smeg has distracted you from my Binnie Hale comment above *sniggers like a pantomime villain who has stolen a prize winning goat from the village fete*

    wait, wait, WAIT!!!!! Hold on, Missy! Seems that everyone is the WHOLE WORLD has decided to change things around and I am L O S T! As in, we still haven’t found a new nest and we’ve turned into couch surfers (ok, we have dibs on guest rooms in our krewe’s homes, but still…) ANYWAY, I don’t have a thing to blog about, I just plugged in my MAC and now I’m playing catch-up with all y’all AGAIN! *sigh* xoxox
