Flag

Above you can see the winning design for Blogland's official flag. Thank you to Master Humphrey Pudding, aged eleven of Sheffield, England. It will fly over the meeting house and residents may wish to purchase clothing items or memorabilia that celebrate the birth of our alernative nation - for example:-

I can exclusively reveal that two well-known celebrity bloggers have asked be part of our special community. How'd you like Johnny Depp living next door to you? Yes that's right folks - Johnny Depp! Should we let him in?

  1. Hm, yes, simple but striking. I might have the mug if you can do it in pink.

  2. JENNY A pink mug for you and a blue one for Keith. They will be waiting for you on the stripped bamboo coffee table on your verandah - near the raffia hammock where I am sure you will rock away many's the sunny afternoon as you attempt crosswords from "Good Housekeeping" while Keith shakes cocktails for you in the little bar area of your chalet. Bliss!

  3. It's just occured to me, if we put all our troubles behind us - the weather, the economy, politicians, supemarkets, traffic warsens etc - what on earth will we write about?

  5. SHOOTING PARROTS You will be able to write about spear fishing, parrot shooting and Blogland's unique flora and fauna plus of course the daily massages that Jiajia will provide on demand as you lie on the stripped bamboo massage bed on your sunny verandah.
    JOHN Okay - a pink mug for you. I hope you will agree to be the nation's poultry supremo as most Bloggish people will be keeping poultry for the first time in their lives and they will need some guidance. Your chalet will be close to Jenny and Keith's place where a volcanic headland divides the two western beaches. Henceforth that little cape shall be called John Gray Head.

  6. Will wonders never cease? I didn't even know there was a Master Humphrey Pudding, aged eleven, of Sheffield, England. His parents have certainly been a busy couple, busier than usual, it seems, and the more so as time goes by, what with second honeymoons to southeast Asian paradises and all. Should we be expecting a little Miss Pudding to be joining Master Humphrey soon?

  7. RHYMES WITH... I swear that Humphrey Pudding is no relation. Honest! The fact that he won the plasma TV and the complete audioworks of Bob Dylan is pure co-incidence.

  8. Nice cup. Are they available now on Zazzle? What will we put in our cups? Can we grow our own designer coffees and chocolates in Blogland? Johnny Depp is fine with me, but I'd really like to be neighbors with Captain Picard, if that can be arranged. Please make it so.

  9. JAN The Blogland mugs are exclusive to Blogland citizens. Regarding Captain Picard, I am sorry to inform you that he doesn't actually exist! It was just a role played by the famous Yorkshire-born film actor Patrick Stewart who is now 71 years old. Is that too old for you?

  10. I suppose you enjoy telling little kids Santa Claus doesn't really exist, too. Patrick Stewart may be 71, but he's still a pip. He'll do.

  11. Jonny Depp? no thanks. Who wants to wake up with someone who is a million times prettier than themselves? I'll take a t-shirt and a mug and do I need a mosquito net?

  12. Before I commit to joining you I need to know if there is aircon. Looks like you've chosen a hot and humid spot for your paradise and hot and humid doesn't appeal to me. I have enough of that here !

    Perhaps I could drop in for a short stopover on my way to cooler climes?
    Cheers
    PS. It will probably be too hot for much coffee drinking. Do you have a similar line in cocktail glasses?

  13. LIBBY It seems that prospective residents are none too keen on the idea of celebrity neighbours so I expect that Johnny Depp will be given the big elbow. You will be happy to learn that there are no mosquitoes in Blogland so you will be able to slumber happily on your big bamboo bed as a sea breeze wafts in to cool you. I shall take it upon myself to check up on you most nights - through your open bedroom window.
    HELEN I realise how cosseted most Australians are so I have already submitted tentative plans for a chalet that is more or less identical to your current Brisbane mansion with a "Bi-Polar" air conditioning unit specially imported from Miami, Florida. You should be very comfortable. The rest of us will find our air is naturally conditioned by breezes from the Andaman Sea. I like the idea of Blogland cocktail glasses. This proposal will be seriously considered by the relevant committee. Will you be bringing Tony? We can probably find him an unskilled maintenance job. How is he with a brush?

  14. Am I not allowed to come, Mr. Pudding? I really would like a villa a little away from the sea, but close enough that I can hear the surf. It can be small...I might even be able to build it myself, if you like. Also, will we be able to have any kind of garden that we like? And, will there be a public room for music and laughter and dancing and theater productions? And could that space be the one place on the island where our instruments of technology would not be permitted? I would hate to have too many rules and regulations, but this seems a small one.

  15. MOUNTAIN THYME Permission granted. Reference BL 7 ABC, plot 7. The public room idea is a good one. The construction company has already been informed and when finished it will be known as the MTB (Mountain Thyme Ballroom) though, unlike you, it's appearance will be quite rustic.

Mr Pudding welcomes all genuine comments - even those with which he disagrees. However, puerile or abusive comments from anonymous contributors will continue to be given the short shrift they deserve. Any spam comments that get through Google/Blogger defences will also be quickly deleted.
