just not fair

On top of everthing else, I now have flu. No fun nights out for me! Instead I shall be mooching round the house necking Lemsip Max and attempting to force consomme down my hideously swollen throat. Still, at least last night's nasty fever seems to have settled. Just as well; I don't fancy another night haunted by the huge floating cod liver oil fish.

On a completely unrelated note, Japanese women wearing current affairs inspired bras. I especially like the one for post office privatization. (From Pink Tentacle's piece on the bra that transforms into a shopping bag.)

Did anyone else catch Jon Snow's emotional farewell to Donald Rumsfeld on Channel 4 news last night? That little smile of triumph was comedy genius. Speaking of comedy, Rumsfeld write poetry. Ug.

That fish is terrifying! and why is it all smug and winking when its liver is going to be turned into oil? It's like the chicken take-aways that have logos with big chickens in chefs hats cooking chicken drumsticks.

I like to think that the fish is called Oliver. Or possibly Noliver.

Oh dear. I hope you're feeling better soon.

That bra page is pretty damned amazing.

Oh yes, and get well soon. Try a hot bath with a handful of sea salt and a piece of root ginger in it. Alternate between hot water with lemon and hot water with ginger. Put a good splosh of whisky in either before you go to bed.

It's always the ginger, isn't it.

why so difficult?
The local co-op doesn't have root ginger.

The bra thing cheered up an otherwise shitty day.

Oh, and kudos for the OOTS icon.

Intriguing that they didn't use Japanese girls for the "soccer team" bras.

Both in the raw and in supplement. It seems to be having some modest success.

You just beat me to commenting on the creepy giant flying fish. Why are so many adverts scary?
And welcome to the winter wonderland of 'flu-like illness'. May we all stop honking and spewing SOON.

I'm glad I'm not the only one creeped out by that FLOATING FISH THING. I'm actually taking one of their supplement at the moment (cod liver and evening primrose -- a weird combination, but circumstances seem to warrant it) which probably isn't helping to dismiss it as a persistent invasive thought

I think the TV version is even creepier than the online one; it writhes more.
...And what about PHONES 4U?, especially the lank-haired serial killer type who yells 'Yeah!Yeah! Those ads are profoundly fucked up...

There are all manner of dances and singing you can do while watching this one.

Re: hey steve
after a large number of thoughtful conversations???? Ah ha ha.

Seriously, though -- it's not the same report. The one of C4 news was rather more The Day Today.

Well Get Prompt !

Wow, those bras are amazing!
Thanks for the link - I am only sorry that Jackie has already left for the weekend, cos she would have loved giggling at them.

I've got a v. nasty cold as well. I feel like all the little tubes inside my ears are on fire. Bleah. In fact, I probably gave it to you on Tuesday night. :/

Get well soon!

Aaaaaarrgh! That fish creeps me out! Creatures should not be smiling and winking at the prospect of their livers being ripped out and squeezed. Ugggh!

Get well soon.

The anti-underpopulation underwear is genius - every time you go to bed with your girlfriend, her knickers remind you to make babies with her! In case you've forgotten! However, it does have the potentially crippling flaw of having pictures of grandmothers on her breasts, which is possibly less likely to lead to baby-making activity than if the breasts were unadorned. Or maybe grannies are a sexual symbol over there, who knows.

Insert smutty gag about the post office girl having a thing for big red English pillar-boxes here.

Don't quite get the armageddon cami.

Unhappily, i must report that London has also been overrun by the plague which has afflicted you, with dead lying unburied in the streets, fumigation of the tubes, mass funeral pyres on the south bank, and reports of cannibalism in Streatham (so at least that's normal). Get well soon.
