Winter Doldrums Contest

The winter sailing hiatus can make things seem kind of dull (unless you are into masochistic frostbite adventures). So here's a contest to let you exercise whatever in the way of "little gray cells" you may have left over from the New Year's celebrations. Good luck.


Why does this picture remind me of Bluesette? From what movie is it taken? What line or lines from the movie best express my relationship with Bluesette?

Answer correctly and win a prize in the Sweet Bluesette Winter Doldrums Contest. Email your answer to pandabonium (at) gmail (dot) com. Please, please, DO NOT post your answer in a comment. Of course, general comments are welcome.

The first three bored sailors to answer correctly or close enough (don't worry, Pandabonium is a gracious contest host) will win a (tangible) prize.

Update: I guess I'm the only fan of 1950s B movies around here. This one was suspiciously similar to the earlier "Cat Women of the Moon", but has a different title and cast. The leader of the moon women has a different title as well.

Update 2011/01/16 - We have a winner! Two more prizes available, so keep trying. Blogging names of the winners will be announced when we have three.

Update 2011/01/17 - another winner. There is still a chance for a prize, so keep working on it. Using the clues in the first update, use a search engine and it will surely lead you to the answer. Once you know the movie, the rest should be easy.
Until next, sweet sailing.

I really am trying to figure this out, but, so far, have neither a clue nor a clew.

My wife has cautioned me, though, not to get a pair of pajamas like those.

Pandabonium said...

Dang. The pajamas were going to be the prize. Now I'll have to come up with something else.

hmmm there is a man and a woman, blue color and sea dragons...? The guy looks lost.

1. Um, because she is blue?
2. Guess who's coming for Omakase?
3. " I hope Mama's is still open after this!"

You guys are half way there. Guess I'll have to add a clue or two.

No fair guess in the comments though.

By the way, is "Lido" as in the name of the sailboat pronounced "Lee Dough" or "Lie Dough"? Just wondering.

Pandabonium said...

lee doh - Lido is the Italian word for beach.

Tillerman said...

In the UK a lido is an outdoor public swimming pool. We always pronounced it lie-doh.

Pandabonium said...

Yes, the pool areas on cruise ships are usually called the "lido deck" too. Same origin. I say potayto and you say potahto....
