is it singing with the children's choir in the qantas ad pictured below?

BBB said...

is it in its own virtual time/space reality?

grot said...

is she clinging to the edge of the worm hole in that simpson's episode where Homer is in the fourth (?) dimension?

(it's just been on again)

itchy fingers said...

is it recently married to Tom Cruise? (can't seem to get him out of my head)

gtg said...

come on now, itchy, tom cruise is real. unlike that "baby" of his. . .

another clue. um. amelia is not happy. :(

Tuchfrau said...

Unreal!!! Dude!!!! Amelia is attached to a the leg rope of a surfer catching waves on a beach in Anglesea. She is not happy, because, well, would you be happy if you were being dragged through cold, salty, turbulent water at that speed?

PS msg for itchy: have responded to your response to my response to your comment on my blog at the original location.

the cockroach has just been booted to the back bench, losing her position as immigration minister! (have you been keeping up with Aussie politics?)

either that or some evil genius is forcing her to watch a Tom Cruise movie marathon.

p.s thanks for the message re the response to the response to the response.

amelia has hitchhiked on the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy

she's not happy because she's still in her pyjamas and they aren't her favourite pink elephant ones

BBB said...

She's riding around in Gollum's loin cloth. (yewwrrrghhhh)

BBB said...

She's in Tom Cruise's helmet when he was in that dreadful Japanese meival war film (overtones of Nightingale Floor)

itchy fingers said...

oh wow. i only just found out about the 'unreal' clue (sometimes your text doesn't show up on these work PCs.)

is it swimming in a vat of 'I Can't Believe it's Not Butter?'

is it hiding somewhere in the interweb?

is it through the looking glass? (possibly amongst those annoying upstart flowers?)

Tuchfrau said...

Is it on your blog? I know it's obvious, but your blog -is- virtual space....

grot said...

Amelia is trapped, terrified, in a Vancouver pig farmer's freezer with two vertically split human heads

- even for a well-travelled cockroach, that is unreal

BBB said...

many happy guesses here.
Where's the next clue?
is she riding on the comet now coursing across the southern sky? She would be unhappy as she would be veryyyyyy cold.
Hey Ichy, how's about a photo of said comet (forgotten it's name)? Looked very speccy from Mt Blackwood last evening.

I have yet to see the comet myself, hope it's still hanging around tonight.

itchy fingers said...

come on GTG, give us another clue! in 2.5 hours my easy internet access runs out until monday!

p.s is the cockroach hunting or being hunted by the jabberwock?

gtg said...

gosh. you leave the cockroach detectives alone for a day and look what happens!

fabulous guesses, very entertaining. kudos to tofu for picking up on my trashy "unreal" ambiguity and also the blog comment. kudos to itchy and grot for bringing it back to current events (i can tell you a great story about recent incidents in the backwaters of ontario. . .) and bbb for keeping it to previous themes. so far itchy is the closest.


amelia is in a story.

grot said...

Amelia has eaten part of the cover of the paul jennings 'Unreal' collection, and she is unhappy because the author has ripped her bloody arms off

Tuchfrau said...

Going with the Paul Jennings theme, Amelia is the bug that bit the boy and gave him transparent skin.

Yes HF I -am- going to bed now!

Night GTG.

itchy fingers said...

the cockroach is playing the part of mr Collins in P & P, just after Lizzie has rejected him!

Tuchfrau said...

Amelia has just been stomped on by an angry Rumplestiltskin.

gtg said...

tuchfrau, tuchfrau, tuchfrau, you ruined my clue plan! see, next i was gonna say "it's in an *old* story" and then that it was a fairytale and then. . . and now you've gone and guessed it! well, actually, amelia *is* rumpelstiltskin, but close enough.

tuchfrau is the Big Winner!

grot said...

'ray for a new winner!

amazing how people can guess so far out of left field (to use an appropriate N American metaphor)

grot said...

ps

jt, now you will get to go to tuchfrau's blog, which has beautiful pictures of London under snow (click on her blue underlined name)

no time to work with so many blogs to keep up with...
