Living Musically – Saturday Sillies

D: In which A combines news and music.

A: I think all news should be delivered musically.

D: So, should dirges accompany bad news and magical themes accompany happy news?

A: Other way around, really – you know just to see if people are paying attention.

D: You make no sense.

A: It’s Saturday sillies, D. I’m not supposed to. Plus, I’m on my third cup of high-test coffee. There will be no sense-making today.

D: Good to know. You don’t actually have that theme song on your phone, do you?

A: No. And that’s probably a good thing. That was The Boy’s contribution to today’s show.

D: Although, it does get me thinking. . .

A: Don’t think, D. Let’s dance instead.

D: You know who loves Bowie, A?

A: Helena. Helena loves Bowie.

D: Too right, and you know what’s going on with Helena today?

A: An Ask.FM Q&A session.

D: Right again – Do you know why?

A: Okay, I said I was a little over-caffeinated, not in need of having lines fed to me! Helena’s successful Kickstarter is over in just three hours (go – preorder now if you haven’t! There are some excellent incentives) today, and to celebrate, she and Jim Squires will be answering questions all afternoon on Ask FM.

D: And how do you plan on celebrating?

A: Well, first by joining her, and second, by putting the lime in the coconut.

D: Are those gorillas?

A: Yes.

D: Gorillas singing and playing instruments, singing about putting the lime in the coconut?

A: Again, yes.

D: This isn’t silly Saturday. This is surreal Saturday.

A: What, you never let your hair down?

D: Very droll, A.

A: So you’re telling me you’ve never gone full monty?

D: A! What a question to ask – you’re going to make a grown warrior blush.

A: Not bloody likely. Answer the question, Druid.

D: Does going  bare in the basin count?

A: In this case, yes. Totally. Speaking of natives. . .

D: This is more of your belated St. Patrick’s Day tribute, isn’t it?

A: What? I love me some Christy, D.

D: Wasn’t there supposed to be news in here?

A: Ah, yes, so there was – thank you, D. In Middle-Earth News, Gandalf needs help. He has a lot on his mind and if he doesn’t find what he’s looking for, I fear–

D: Seriously, A?

A: What? It’s hysterical (And many thanks to Perry for posting that and making my Friday – I’m a lurker on her site, and it just made me smile).

D: . . .

A: Almost as hysterical as this Oakentoon.

D: Are you quite finished?

A: Maybe.

D: Finally, I was—

A: Oh, wait! There’s middle-earth madness going on now.

D: . . .

A: Because, you know, it’s basketball season – I think – and people are betting on stuff, but I don’t know anything about basketball, so voting on Middle-Earth matchups seems so much more entertaining.

D: You know, A . . . I think. . .

A: Yes?

D: Hang on, I’m getting there. I think that you should put this in your pipe and smoke it.

A: That is not the Eddie Izzard clip I listened to in the car.

D: No. No it is not.

A: This one is better.

D: Yes. Yes, it is.

A: And with that, I think our Saturday Sillies are over.

D: Really?

A: Well, in the blogosphere. . . for now.

D: And with that threat, we bid you all a fond adieu.

A: Thank you for reading, everyone and have a great weekend!

  1. Ahahahaha. Oh my, Eddie Izzard sees movies differently than I do! 😆

    I would love to go to the movies with him, get out and say, so now what movie did you see? lol.

    He’s right about the pipe, though. Instant wisdom to the pipe smoker, lol. Great post Katie, now maybe I can stay caught up! 😀


    1. He sees the whole wide world through such a different filter. He just tickles my funny bone. That would be fun – he’s got a skit on the Death Star Cantina, which is hysterical, particularly if you’ve ever queued up for cafeteria style-food (and in the UK especially).

      :-0 I think I need to get caught up with myself. I have five drafts for posts sitting in my folder and I just stare at them, like – what? What do you want me to type? Of course, I’m writing D’s narrative for book 2, so I’m with him 24/7. There may have to be a few ‘me’ posts here for a while!


      1. I would say I know what you mean.. but I am no where near that organized, lol. I just write them as I go, lol.

        I am going to have to track down that Cantina video, it sounds awesome, lol.

        Yup, definitely take some you time, away from D, lol.


  2. Well, I guess if you you have 800 million throw cushions they are too many, I suppose. LOL!!! Love that so much! And the Magic Roundabout brings back so many memories. I honestly think we were separated at birth, Katie!

    BTW, when David Bowie’s Let’s Dance came out, I hated it. Yep, hated it with a passion. Nowadays, I love it because it reminds me of how wonderful it was being a teenager in the 80’s! Wow, what a great post…
