Sista challenge

Hello dear reader,

Eleanor from the comment box has been nice and friendly for far too long.

It's time to stir things up.

It's time for Eleanor to show her true colours.

No longer will Eleanor quietly and calmly continue to post only fairytales and poetry, noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....... for a challenge has been set by one Eurolush of the Glan, and this has tempted "dear and lovely" Eleanor to show her other side, her fiercely competitive side, which she has kept hidden from view, deep within her soul, until she could no longer contain the evil, and thus.....





















Watch Eleanor as she shows you how we run in Australia, among the gum-trees in the heat of mid-November:




Watch Eleanor as she is about to get booked by the park ranger for speeding. "I'm sorry miss," he says sternly, "your running speed is presenting a danger to your fellow joggers, I insist that you slow down."




And just when you thought she couldn't run any faster, any further....why, that's when Eleanor releases her super-secret Aussie weapon:




"Release the hound," she cries out in triumph and delight:




The photographer requested that Eleanor and her hound slow down to normal human pace so that he could get this shot. Had Eleanor and her hound continued at their superhuman speed the camera would have been unable to capture their movement.

BRING IT ON SISTA!!!!!!

I just had, quite frankly, a shit day at my second job. (Retail + upset tummy + 9 HOURS! = foul, foul mood.) This post? Totally brightened my outlook.

Good on ya, Eleanor!

And thanks!

Oh Eleanor - you are as mad as our Eurolush - why run when you can gently amble.

I think you are doing Australia proud though...

Oh, snap! Eurolush just got dissed! Sista Friend, this means business.

The challenge is on...

Wait for it.

A storm's headed your way, dearest gul.

Batten down the hatches...

Eurolush is comin' to town.

Um, this internet thing has really taken over your life, hasn't it?

blackbird said...

Ah, Eleanor, truly this is the PICTURE of giving someone a run for the money - er, PASTRY.

And poor Eurolush - running in that damp cold German weather while you bask in the warm rays of sunshine!
She's doomed.

The gauntlet has been thrown.

Who shall be victorious?

I really need to get off my butt.

Eleanor,

Your shoes must have rocket boosters on them. Do you have to wear special earplugs to protect you when you break the sound barrier?

I'll bet Eurolush is trembling in her little orthopedic running shoes.

Sheesh...
the ripples...
I am TOTALLY afraid...
because there is no way I can cope if they reach as far as England.

Badger said...

Gott im Himmel, it's CONTAGIOUS!

Fortunately I am immune to the running disease, having had it as a child.

Dear Miss Eleanor,
Running is very cool. My mommie showed me your pictures of Australia and told me it was summer there. I cannot believe it, but if you look around you see new things all the time so it probably is.

Thank you for liking my costumes, I like them too.

Love, C

I stand in bewildered awe before this witty woman, this witch of words, the queen of eloquence, the fairy of phonetics - the birthday beast from down under!
Wishing you the happiest of happy days!!
