Greetings, Alpha Squadron. And welcome back for a second helping of #sundaypics, lovingly spooned onto your plate by yours truly… hmm, this intro’s all over the shop. One minute I’m a luxuriantly bushy-mustachioed commander, the next some kind of chef. OK, scrap that, let’s start again…
Hello everyone! Yes, it’s me again, back with the second, and final, of my #sundaypics blogs, deputising for the splendid @wombat37. The task for this particular Sunday was to have a good ol’ rummage in your drawers (insert own racy @wombat37 erotic innuendo), and photograph five of the finest pieces of junk type stuff therein, for our viewing pleasure. The kinda stuff that you hold onto for no real reason and dump in a drawer/cupboard/tin with all the string and batteries and candles n stuff. These bad boys are comin’ atcha in no particular order, as I can’t remember who sent what when (again). There aren’t enough hours in the day to go through every object in your pics, but I’ll select the odd one to comment on. Feel free to sift through the rest of the junk at your leisure! As the erstwhile host of Catchphrase, Roy Walker, was so fond of saying, I’ll ‘say what I see’ in lieu of an accurate description of the aforementioned bric-a-brac. Right, away we go…
From memory, first out of the blocks was @Nortoner with these two sets of five objects, nailing, with his first one, exactly the sort of eclectic mix I was after. Where else but a junk drawer could one find chickens, Coke lorries, magnifying glasses, plastic fish, and miniature top hats!
@wombat37’s fez was the eye-catching centrepiece of his collection, as well as a cool airfix kit, a bunch of geek dice, blue flubber in a jar, and clearly some kind of kinky sex toy 😉
@lizard simpkins’ playing cards were apparently too erotic to be shown, but she’s happy enough to corrupt an innocent duck. @watty62 also has a creature in his five items, a rather evil-looking rat, combined with that all-important airbed repair kit. You just never know when you’re gonna suffer an airbed blowout, so it’s best to be ready for such a nightmare scenario. Talking of well-prepared, @mrsactive has all manner of screws and bendy metal things to hand, as well as the all-important takeaway menu.
Next up it’s @flossieTP’s scorpion, some salty bears from twisted firestarter @greythorne, and @zebedee40’s weird pencil/stick thing. Nice fan.
Ah, where would we be without comedy moustaches. @Ironthighs leads the way with her pirate set, @captain_doodle follows up with the classic Groucho specs n moustache combo. And here’s @Crofty to finish up the batch of three. No moustache, just stuff he’s clearly stolen from hotels 😉
@Underbundle has an unpopped popper and one of those rubbish compasses you get with shoes, but that fancy drawing pins box is rather lovely. Get it out of the junk drawer! Also coming under the ‘not rubbish enough for junk’ category is @lottedh’s lovely cluster of objects she found under her bed, and @intruth’s Jack Skellington thing
A-ha! Sellotape! I’d have been disappointed had some not popped up somewhere. It’s in the drawer of @talojo, along with a bunch of nice jugs (fnar fnar) and some smashing Postman Pat crayons. Ooh, another unused party popper from @ThatLauraKnox. C’mon, get popping! Maybe she could set it off it to celebrate @little_mavis’ 18th birthday! 😉
@davidtims has kept one of those Ikea tape measures for some reason. Perhaps it’s to measure his Morning Glory (that’s the name of the packet of seeds, in case you can’t make it out! 😉 @fraggle_red23 also has some seeds ready for sowing, and ooh, @mikeybaer has a zip disk! Blimey, that’s a blast from the past
@kirtle always keeps a headless figurine to hand, @spacebarf has a very utilitarian set of objects, including obligatory mystery lead, and @FBishWife has a glow-in-the-dark turtle!
Loving @thom_white’s Russian watch and old graphics tablet, @xkylet’s banana, and pin from Spandau Ballet’s ‘World Parade’! and @JohnRands_TMTL’s safe sex, erm, medallion. Perhaps it’s an award for services to safe sex? I dunno what that googly finger monster was doing in the @captain_doodle junk drawer. It’s ace. Parma Violets (the dirty, granny-perfumed sweeties of satan), on the other hand, should stay locked up forever with no hope of release.
@catinabaglady has a very sewingy flava to her drawer. And batteries finally make an appearance. @jingleby has some too, in very attractive Norwich City style packaging (his most favouritist team of all 😉
@ScullyScully likes a spot of badminton by the look of it, @Dawgbelly has a slightly scary Russian doll thing, @00spiltmilk00 wants us to get behind the Robins, and @SarahTregear has cruelly covered up the Thomas The Tank Engine quiz with her collection – now I’ll never find out which engine Thomas woke up!
Phew, nearly there. Finally, we come to detention corner, for all the naughty boys n girls who can’t count to five 😉 @jamerz3294_1, with his two pics of messy drawers, @Janegoth, with her excess scissors, and @Littlebit_Bod, with her gameboy and random leads n keys, all see me after class for extra maths homework!
Right then, thanks very much to @wombat37 for having me as guest host. It’s been fun. And now back to Wombat in the #sundaypics studio…
