I Haven't Won Anything Since That Box Of Maltesers In The School Tombola In 1976...

I have been awarded Post of the Week by the lovely people at, er, Post of the Week. I am disproportionately excited at this news, and will celebrate tonight with a small tot of something or other. It seems only right and proper that I should make a full acceptance speech. If I start to cry and ask God to Bless America, someone please shoot me stop me.

I would firstly like to thank Ulrika-ka-ka-ka for her willingness to share so much of herself on prime time television. So much. (In fact I would suggest to her that she could now stop, if that is not too presumptuous of me.) I must of course thank the talking horse and its owner with the unfeasibly long hair (which is apparently the longest hair in the world. No really, it is.) I couldn’t have done it without them. Thank you to Channel 4, for finding that tiny slither of the sleaze market not yet covered by Channel 5, and filling it so competently. And finally my mother, who continues to contribute so persistently to my world-weariness.

I couldn’t have done it without you.

P.S. A serious thanks to Dandelion for nominating me xxx

OMG! You're a celebrity!

I think you are a most deserving winner.

Ms Melancholy said...

Yes Stray, I am indeed a celebrity. I will be signing autographs later, after I have put away the washing and made the children's tea.

Dandelion said...

Well, it was an excellent post.

Have a great evening.

Marie said...

Congratulations! It was a great post and so is this one.

I saw that programme, and now wish that I hadn't!

trousers said...

Well done Ms M!

Well deserved, I might add.

The Moon Topples said...

Congrats Ms. M. Send an autograph my way, once you've finished your chores.

Caroline said...

Oh my oh my.
You're famous - first published, now this ... Ms M what will be next?

x

(can I have your autograph ... please x)

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey Dandelion, thanks again x

Hi Marie, how can you wish you hadn't seen it? It's the funniest thing I've seen in months!

Cheers Mr Trousers sir. When you gonna get your own blog?!!

Hi Mr Moon and Lovely Caroline - autographs in the post. You are so kind. I love you all mwah! mwah! xxx

trousers said...

Ms M, I shall unashamedly take your question as a compliment.

The answer is, tomorrow. Or next year. Basically, I don't know: I'm a bit crap like that.

Jude said...

So, now you are a celeb, will you do a sex expose on channel 4?

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey Trousers, compliment intended. I really do think you should have a blog. I would read it for sure. And it would give me some more clues as to your profession, which absolutely must be in mental health somewhere. However, if you are an RMN then please don't bother because that means you are clearly barking mad and will confuse the hell out of all of us. I should know. My husband is one.

Lovely Jude, what a bloody fantastic idea. I could interview loads of people with bizarre sexual fetishes and then diagnose them all as entirely fucking normal and close the programme there. I would love that. I hate all this pathologising business. We do what we do. End of story. If it doesn't interfere with your ability to lead a relatively normal life, it's all fine with me. Sorry, I'm rambling. The fame is going to my head. I may need to speak to Aunty Caroline for some normalisation. Now she really is famous.

The Moon Topples said...

Autograph in the post? But...I never even gave you my address.

Are you blowing us off in the way that you famous sorts do? If so, well done!

Ms Melancholy said...

Oh, Mr Moon, you have seen through my shallow words...x

Well deserved, I fell about laughing at that blog. It is just so inspiring to rub blogs with such famous people.

Can't wait for the sex expose thingamajiggy!!!!

Francesca said...

I've just found your blog and did like the post on the whole Ulrika and the sex addicts (sounds like a rock group!) bit.

Well deserved award as "Post of the Week".

Happy Monday!

Francesca said...

Oh crap! It's Tuesday!

Sorry!

Don't mind me, I'm on holiday, so I could almost care less which day it is!

Happy TUESDAY, tho!

;)

Pendullum said...

Congratulations to you, your mother and the talking horse!

rivergirlie said...

so richly deserved. er - have you finished all those maltesers?

Ms Melancholy said...

Dear BoBo, bow low, my man. I will hold you to that x

Thank you Sheepish - your comments are most kind.

Cheers, Francesca - beautiful picture there. Is that where you live?

Hi Pendullum - many thanks and thanks for dropping by.

Rivergirlie - many moons ago, I'm afraid. I have had several boxes since, as well. I am quite partial to maltesers. I guess I have been suckered by the adverts.

Boris said...

Well done Ms M. Fame at last.

Some are born famous, some seek fame and some (like you) have fame thrust upon them.

Boris

PS got your comment and I will try harder.

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey, lovely Boris. You know me so well...x

That's so pants said...

Well done Ms M - it was very funny indeed. I had the opportunity to catch up with the repeat the other night. It may have been a gift but, in your hands, it could not have been more expertly wrapped.

Ms Melancholy said...

Hey Pants, high praise indeed xxx

charlotte said...

Congratulations - that was a fab post!

Ms Melancholy said...

Thanks Charlotte. You are too kind.
