I am beflabbled by this. Liderally. Rachel de Thame has really let herself go

VP said...

Best quote of yesterday:

'I don't know anything about gardening, but I dooooo know about fashion!'

I'll leave you to guess which one of them said it.

Did you notice how similar their voices got as time went on?

HappyMouffetard said...

Why did the following lyrics spring to my mind...?

"You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, digging the Dancing Queen"

It was one of those - you had to be there to believe it - events. Caused VP and me lots of amusement.

James A-S said...

Ms Sock you are soooo in disgrace with me...
Not only do you publish that appalling picture of me looking as if I am sucking a lemon but you are actually in my theatre without coming and saying hello.
It is the sort of behaviour I would expect from a pop-sock but not from someone of 100% cashmere

Victoria said...

Caption for final picture: "Is that a gunnera in your pocket or are you just pleased ta see me?"

VP said...

Told you he'd be upset...

VP said...

...so don't be so shy next time. He doesn't bite, much ;)

Sue (aka Trillium) said...

1. 'Nice TV you're wearing there James....
2. ....how does it look on me?'
3. 'Don't look now, Joe's wearing a field'
4. 'Anyone for a little propagation with me?'
5. 'She turned me down, but you'll do, babe'

It'll have to do - it's late, brain's cooked.

P.S. to JAS. How did you stay awake through the CB 'Apprentice' marathon?!?

Arabella Sock said...

Tee hee to "Rachel de Thame has really let herself go"!

I did notice the voices, VP I think they were outcamping each other.

HappyM - those lyrics perfectly sum it up!

James, don't worry I will make it up to you by publishing more pictures of you. I did hang around the theatre for ages first watching the CB snorathon, occasionally waking up to listen to your witty interjections, and then for the fashion show but you were either not to be seen or onstage. Anyway how could I possibly compete for your attention with all those young, half-dressed nubiles around even allowing for the fact I am 100% cashmere?

Trillium - it just had to be Joe wearing the field didn't it? Someone should have strimmed him!

Ms B said...

I have been trying to think of something witty all weekend, but I can't get over the problem that poor JA-S is obviously having with his teeth. Unless it is a sharp intake of breath at the gorgeous creature next to him!

Arabella Sock said...

I think they are both thinking about what the model might do with the fork!

LittleGreenFingers said...

I just want to say thank you Ms Sock. I was having a fairly dull Monday morning till I saw this.

Since James' blog entries appear to have first been somewaht hostile to my attempts to read them, and then run off to hide somewhere in the ether, I am having a wonderful time following his Malvern meandering through your pictures instead.

And Emma-best comment I've seen for a while!

Ryan said...

I dont think I can top EmmaT! You make me laugh!

Wish I was there now.

Ryan

Arabella Sock said...

And the winner is Emma T for "Rachel de Thame has really let herself go". I will send you a Chris Beardshaw clone when I have pricked them out and potted them on.

Maggi said...

I so wanted to join in with this - no comments when I first looked. Thought the photos were brill and had a caption for the first one: Daahling,you are renowned for your hat, may I ask where it is? J A-S, No problem, I have it safe here down my trousers.

Then, my computer just upped and died. As I have taught my grandchildren to say, 'Calamity'!!!! I I was feeling, especially as I have been at work all this week until now, then sorting stuff and off to Chelsea on Friday for the duration. EEk, how can I sort it out quickly? Fortunately after 24 hours Mac returned to life, albeit a bit erratic. He seems fine now but I feel a trip to the Apple Store on Monday coming on (when I've been chucked out of Chelsea 'cos only one person per stand is allowed to sip bubbly and nibble on canapes. Retail therapy is a great panacea!

Maggi said...

Sorry, my tryping is rubbish today! x

HappyMouffetard said...

Great win by Emma. I see that the BBC are wheeling Rachel out for her annual Chelsea visit. Are we taking bets this year on how long she speaks before mentioning roses?

patientgardener said...

....or having them adorn her clothing or her shoes

Arabella Sock said...

Hi Maggi - love the caption idea and better late than never! What's happening in Mac world? James' blog is broken too and I think he uses a Mac - I just tried to get there and got a nice picture of a sunset and a load of latin from some other blogger entirely! I live in fear that my computer will seize up at some totally inopportune moment.

I can't wait for the Rose-simpering as Garden Monkey so aptly describes it. I wonder how long before they get Joe into some ridiculous outfit.. perhaps they will dress him as a gnome this year and then hopefully the organisers will chuck him out!
