A Spaceman Came Travelling

Well, at least no one should be in doubt about tonights video lol! One of those glorious under rated Christmas songs that doesnt get the love it deserves. So fine, that can lead to a little silliness tonight, OK?

Over the years there has been much talk about whether there are visitors to Earth from Outer Space, or not. Now, whether Roswell really happened in 1947, or not, who knows? But its funny, that if nothing happened, why security is so tight in that little area of New Mexico, but anyway…? And yes, in terms of logical flight times, it seems unlikely, to put it mildly. But equally, if these alien being have created some form of hyper space flight, well then, who knows? But agreed, in most cases, unless they have craft that can fly faster than the speed of light, its pretty doubtful.

Yes, thats a shame for me, as I would love it to be true! Even better if they want to prove it to me, in any way of their choice! Oh fine, the offer of a part as an alien, with decent/good outfit, I would love it! In a sense, I suppose De Burgh’s hypothesis about an event that happened just over 2000 years ago is probably no better, or worse than many others. I’m sure an angel would have looked a very alien creature to Shepherds back then, for sure. But a visitor from Outer Space, who has never returned in over 2000 years (allegedly), hmm?

Well, I know my next ‘acting’ role, and it wont be an alien, unless I get a very good offer within the next 10 days! Instead, it will be an Elf, acting as assistant to Miss Claus, at the Secret Santa gift presentation, a week on Wednesday. Yes, its a ‘get your own outfit’ job, and I found this one on Ebay that I thought would be fun.

Not sure something that short is wise at my age, but its only for a few hours, so why not? If anyone is daft enough to risk their picture taking device (cant just say camera any more, lol) taking a picture of me wearing it, I promise to post it!

Right, the video. You know what it is already, and its the official version of it, as it seems quite apt

Women are from Venus, Men are from Earth

I know, thats not quite the punchline that you see in books, and commentaries, and the like, but it works for tonights blog, related to a story I read earlier today. This one, in fact

http://192.155.80.152/VenusNeedsMen/index.html

If anyone hadnt already realized it, and I have no idea why you wouldnt have done, I love the old 50’s sci-fi stuff, especially anything involving robots, outer space, or ideally both! To say that some female ‘invaders’ from other planets seemed to specialize in skimpy, shiny, tight fitting outfits would be putting it mildly. Yes, I’d loved to have appeared in some of those movies, far too true!

Its rare to find any EMCSA story set in the recent past, let alone one that fits the image of the time as well as this one does. Of course there were numerous ‘horror’ movies made about female invaders from outer space, or had intrepid Earth men heading to other places, and getting ensnared by sexy females from some planet, or indeed, the moon. Of course, as we know, no one actually lives on those places, but anyway…its good harmless fun!

Oh, why cant I get a part in a movie like those lol? Well fine, I’m a bit old now, but… full alien bodysuit, and mask, and I’d be fine! 😀

Oh fine, not that in that story, I wouldnt mind being on the opposite end of that ‘Extractor’ machine, if they ever had a need to use it on Earth females! 😉

So yes, if like me, you have a love for the whole 50’s sci-fi stuff, then you need to give this a read. And yes, if they ever turn this into a movie, I want to play a middle aged Venusian woman lol!

Fine, these women arent ugly, very pretty in fact, but its been a while since we’ve had any Rocky Sharpe and the Replays on here, so lets make up for lost time. They are definitely one of those groups I regret never seeing live, assuming they did live concerts? Sadly they’re not on the ‘retro’ touring scene, due to the ill health of the lead singer, great shame

Flying home for Thanksgiving

Its amazing to think back now to the fact that it actually took the first pilgrims to the US in 1620, about 2 months to get there from England. By the time they sailed, it was autumn, heading into winter, so sailing against the winds was very hard work.

A hundred years or so ago, it would still have taken about a week, or slightly more, to reach the US from England by ship. Ships had far better speed to travel by then, due to the wonders of modern (for their time) engines. Planes were primitive beasts back then, far from capable of Atlantic crossings at that point. Of course, now, its possible to reach the East Coast, around Cape Cod at least, in about 6 hours! Jet planes are a wonderful thing, and the fares now, allowing for inflation, are probably cheaper than some of those ships of the past.

Of course, 50 years from now, flying home for Thanksgiving might be involving interplanetary flights, as well as Transatlantic ones. Yes, ancestors of those first pilgrims to Mars, and maybe by then, beyond, might be heading home to families too. Moon as well, I suspect, but I wont be around to find out, for sure. Though given gravity differentials, will that be possible?

Of course I’m assuming that tradition will stand then, but I cant imagine it changing, somehow. After nearly 400 years…!

This year, I havent flown anywhere for Thanksgiving. Have now done it once, and will possibly do it again, post retirement, but I suspect not before then. Well, unless…?

A friend, Stacie, sent me this, as a suggestion of a suitable Christmas present for me. Yes, I have to agree!

No, as far as I know, Amazon dont actually sell them, shame. Would be beyond my budget if they did, anyway! Of course, to fly such a craft, you need a suitable outfit to wear. For me, this seems pretty good! 😀

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adult-Alien-Fancy-Costume-Standard/dp/B014WZ5UCQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1511340295&sr=8-3&keywords=adult%20alien%20costume

Of course, if you know of a better one that I can wear, going cheap…? 😉 Now, that would be a fun role to play, though I do wonder if you get out of that outfit again after putting it on! Or is it an alien life forever after that? Not that I would mind, but…?

Video time. This works for the present, and the future at least. Those early pilgrims probably wish they could have done a 6 hour flight (or whatever), rather than 2 months at sea!

Its no fun being an illegal alien?

Firstly, I’m not going to take all the kudos for this piece of Independence Day lunacy, because I was inspired by someone named Madi to come up with this idea. Oh, happy 4th of July to all US readers, regardless.

And no, let me also add that despite all of Trump’s neuroses over building a wall between the US, and Mexico, this piece also (other than the video?) doesnt relate to people from south of the border, either.

No, this piece relates to another type of visitor on Independence Day, though they were definitely not wanted by the US, for sure. But no, before anyone gets over excited, these were (I assume?) purely fictional. Yes, its movie related, though a very modern one for me at least, given it came out in the 90’s! Yes, the movie just known as Independence Day, when a large number of aliens visited the Earth, destroyed a few cities, and millions of people, in a fictional sense, before their weakness was found, and the ‘good guys’ win out in the end. Now I know the aliens didnt look as cute as this, but its the only apt photo I’ve got.

Yes, I would happily wear that, either for an acting role, or just for fun, given the chance, if someone bought it for me! Though fine, something even more alien looking might be even more fun! Madi actually suggested that this might be very suitable, and in truth, I would agree, very happily, though it might not look quite so good on a fifty something (nearly 60) with middle aged spread lol!

But fine, if anyone happens to have something like that, just laying around, in my size…? 😉 Yes, I’d love to do a photo shoot, or acting role in something like that! Would you believe thats actually from a 1933 movie? Well, yes, you can tell its pre-code lol! Katherine Hepburn, in Christopher Strong, if you’re curious?

However, before anyone shows any concern, I know of no alien plans to attack the US on this Independence Day, at least. So, enjoy the day, if you’re celebrating.

Right, video time. Yes, this is about the type of alien that Trump gets his knickers in a twist about. But dont worry, this is just 3 wealthy Brit’s, who have no need to sneak into the country in that way lol. Now, Donald, just give me that green card/working visa, and I’ll tell those other aliens to send back that attack force…lol?

Someone sends me flowers!

No, before anyone gets over excited, starts making wedding plans for me, and anything else, its nothing like that! For one thing, they’re from a woman, and I know nowadays, but she doesnt rock that way lol! In fact, if she hadnt had ‘fun’ with the website, I suspect it would have been this,

alien-suit

or something similar, but when, and where I would have actually worn it, I have no idea. Mind, if someone wants to provide me with the matching flying saucer…? 😀

Yes, its a lovely floral display, with some silver, and gold in it, anyone would think she knew me far too well? I meant to take a picture today, but it hasnt happened, so for now, you’ll have to believe me. Even if I had, I’d have to find the lead to let me download it to here, so…lol. 😛

She’s actually one of a pair of Facebook friends I’m hoping I can get to meet next September, but given I’m not sure exactly what my long time friend has planned for me, I havent got anything concrete on that. I’m also hoping to get to New Hampshire to be brainwashed, sorry, hypnotized, so that I can find out more about my past life self. So throw in a proper break for both of us, and…we will see!

Yes, before you ask, its an early Christmas present, love it. Actually, I have been given another present already, today in fact. Yes, a lock for my metal collar, great stuff! It is currently locked, though I have the key still in it, for both quick release, if needed, and because with the issues with my fingers, I’m not sure how quickly I could put the key in, get the collar off, and stuff, if I didnt! Now, if I had that matching alien suit lol…A dominant alien controlling submissive little me, hmm? 😉 Or a nice robot suit, or…? Oh fine, if anyone other than S needs measurements, let me know, OK? 😉

All other presents will actually be waiting until Boxing Day, as the rest of the household here are away until then, after tomorrow, and I’m going to wait until they get back to open mine. I would ask if anyone wanted to turn me into a robot for the Christmas period (by any means), but I’m on feeding duties for cats, and gerbils, so maybe not, sadly. Still, for a day, or so…? I finish work Thursday evening, go back next Thursday lunchtime, if anyone wants to offer? No, probably not!

OK, the video. A total misnomer, but its a lovely song, and does mention flowers, so…

Come and get me, guys, you know I’d love it if you did!

Fine, silly title, relevant to most of the blog, as you will soon discover. But firstly…

My plan had been to post yesterday, given it was the centenary of 2 major events, one happy, one very sad. Given events, that caused me to need to travel over to Bradford, and back, it never happened. But I cannot go without mentioning them. The special one for me, the 100th birthday of the actress, Olivia De Havilland, probably best known to most, as Melanie, in Gone With The Wind. One of the few actresses left from that era, and almost certainly the most famous one, for that, and other roles.

The sad one, 100 years ago yesterday marked the beginning of the Battle Of The Somme, and the futile loss of so many brave young lives. Thousands died within the first hour, let alone the first day, and by the end of that battle, a million lives, on both sides had been lost. These brave men were led by fools, and deserve to be remembered for their brave gesture.

And fine, you might still have got that, but for something I discovered this morning. Yes, seriously, today is World UFO Day! Which explains the blog title, given my love of all such matters.

The first thing that amazed me, is that we actually have a World UFO Day. I mean, I can understand a few areas which might want to celebrate it, but I would have thought that if there were actually aliens here (or nearby), the last thing they’d want is publicity! Dont get me wrong, I’d love them to be real, I’d love for them to come and get me, take me on a flight, and hey, I’d certainly let them probe me as payment for that! Hey, if they want to take me on a long distance flight to their own planet, yes please! Lets face it, me, I’d see tampering with my mind, and/or body as a bonus!

Sadly, so far, no friendly (or otherwise) alien has appeared to whisk me off to their space craft, or otherwise. Believe me, I’d love you guys to turn up and do it. Bringing me back would only be optional too! No, I dont really expect it to happen, but hey, a girl can dream, on this day at least. So, if any alien should pick this blog up, I’m waiting for you to come and get me, eagerly!

The video, one of few I could think of that actually has aliens in it. I did use this before, but it was 3 years ago, and not one of the popular blogs from that era, so lets run with it again.

A home suitable for here, or outer space.

Back in the early 1970’s, someone in Finland decided that the current design we were using to live in, had got a bit dull, and needed shaking up. So, he came up with this, and called it the Futuro home

my dream home

In truth, this is either a very old photo, a very well restored one, or someone has created a modern reconstruction of one. Why? Because they werent made of the best possible material, and of the few still surviving now, most arent in a good condition, let alone almost mint condition, like this one!

Yes, I’d love to live in one, at least for a short time, just because they look amazing, and fine, look just like a UFO. Not coincidence in the design, given the name, I’m sure? I suspect that to do so, I’d either need to find a very reconditioned one (maybe like this one is?), or get someone to customize me one from scratch! I know, I havent got any money, so I either need to get someone to buy me one, or even better, get a friendly alien to deliver a proper flying saucer for me to live in!

Sadly, despite looking like they should, as far as I know, they dont fly at all, let alone at fantastic speeds as a UFO would surely do. Yes, I wouldnt mind having an Earthbound one as home, but one that could fly off into outer space might just be better? 😉

Fine, I wouldnt actually need to wear a silver body suit to live there, but it might be a whole lot more fun to do so! Yes, you could just imagine people’s reactions, if you lowered the steps, and walked out of there, in a silver suit! 😀

So please, if someone has one suitable, even as an overnight stay, I’d love to do it. And yes, I would wear silver in there, believe me!

Right, the video. You have a choice of 2 tonight. The original version of the song

Or one that appeals to me far more, as a jazzed up version of said song.
