Rebecca and Sara

Dear Bloggers,

Thank you for your suggestions and support in connection with the ejaculating tube of Vitapointe.

I think of you whenever I look at my lustrous blonde tresses enhanced by the Charles Worthington and Sunsilk products you recommended.

I haven’t tried the extra virgin yet.

I sent an email to Rebecca Addison and Sara Lee customer relations department. I referred them to the post and pointed out that it was second on Google blog search for Sara Lee and first for Vitapointe.

Over the next few days I had lots of hits from Sara Lee.

Rebecca still hasn’t replied but someone called Lois Sharma wrote back. She told me that Rebecca was a highly valued member of her team who had received many testimonials from *satisfied customers*.
The fault was caused by a *rare technical problem with the crimping machine*.
She then said would I accept ten quid and the dry cleaning bills paid in full.

Well that’s a bit more like it .. As you said ‘The power of the blog!’

I tried to persuade Rebecca to post a comment - but she must be shy. I still haven’t heard from her

I’m a trifle puzzled by the advert above. I know A is for apple so P is for pomme. But what is H for? That little chap in the Tommy Cooper hat looks like he’s strong - so is it F for Fort? Why is that fish sitting on that woman’s head? And what’s it all got to do with Vitapointe?

Perhaps Rebecca will congratulate me. It’s my blogging birthday tomorrow.

Yes - it’s ONE year since I started. I believe that bonfires are to be lit all across the country in celebration.

I know the tag line... it's "..and beautiful as the horse that madam employs". (You'll have to wait for Anxious for the rest.)

And I thought the language was a bit unsuitable (Problems with the crimping machine). Mind your crimping language young lady Soil Harmer!

Congratulations on the 10 quid though Kaz. Are we all coming round for a slap up party with the proceeds?

Happy One-th birthday, Kaz

*crimping machine sounds like a compliment some cool urban dude would give your car. "Hey, that sho is one crimping machine, ma man!"

Not a compliment my crimping 1.3 litre Skoda favourit estate ever received, oddly enough

Murph: As well as being DOGmatic you are also becoming very Enigmatic. In other words I haven’t the foggiest what you are on about.
However I would love to share the 10 quid - How's abowt some doggy

Thanks Lubin! You seem very relaxed about it all. I'll wait until I can 'snatch the pebble from your hand'.

Gary - Maybe the Skoda explains why you are not exactly inundated with requests from the er ladeez. My ancient 'onda Civic is sho nuff a non PC petrol guzzling crimping ride ... man!

Happy anniversary!

What on earth are the initials for on the Vitapointe ad? It's extra difficult in French, but F might be Fort, G might be Glossy, only that's English, H could be Hairy if those are peaches, and it was English, M must be something to do with the Mer, and S.. in a jug - must be Saucy.
No, that's English as well.
But it does say it's Beautiful like the horses of Mama, who uses Vitapointe.

Or has that O level vocab slipped again....

I thought a crimping machine was one of those things that gave your hair that early eighties "sheep with an electric shock" look. Unless you were poor, like me, and just dried your hair with it tied up in little plaits (very time consuming, that).

Does the "f" in the picture stand for "fez"?

Anyway, happy blog day. Sit back, relax, have a glass of wine, etc.

I think the monk's saying, "the ejaculation was nothing to do with me."

Many happy returns, Kaz.

Happy Blogiversary Kaz!

Okay, the last bit is "and beautiful, like the hair of the mum who uses Vitapointe" (not very good English, but you get the idea), but I'm pretty stumped for the other ones.

I agree that F could be "fort" and that is relevant to hair, at least. Or Fez, which is irrelevant.

G - the French for monk is "moine", so no idea what they're on about there.

The fish could be a cod (morue) I guess...

The word for jug would be "carafe" or "pichet", so what's the S all about?

Nope, whichever way you look at it, it's nonsense.

Stitchwort: Ah I see. I hadn’t read the bit about the ‘cheveux de maman.’ I remember all my class sniggering when we discovered that the French said 'hairs' instead of 'hair' and that they called it a horse.
I should apologise to Murph - but I won’t.

Cheers Betty: It was - but to get the full effect you had to use it with wet hands in the bath. And stick it in your ear.

Geoff: You are right you can tell by the way he’s holding his hands.
Thanks - I hope to be still at it next year.

Thanks MJ - Please keep visiting.

AnX: Thanks for trying. I think it must be to do with the comme. As in 'Cunning comme un fox'. As if life hasn't got enough problems

Blogger Anxious said...

Yes, you're right, it's adjectives we're looking for. I was just trying to match the letter with the picture - Durr!

Okay, a bit of googling

"fort comme un turc" for the first one (hence the fez)

Well, that's my afternoon entertainment taken care of... will be back with more answers...

"gras comme un moine" - as fat as a monk

Blogger stitchwort said...

"ChevEux" of course, is Hair - "ChevAux" is the horses, as in Deux Chevaux, the upturned bathtub of a car made by Citroen !

Blogger KAZ said...

Anx: Formidable!! Bien Fait.
And now I have an insult for some of my fatty friends that they won't understand.
I jest of course.

Stitchwort: Ah yes it was compusory to have stickers on the back.
I saw one yesterday, still going strong (fort).

'ow about miroitement comme une plus grand sparkly fish?

Can you tell I failed my French O level?

Happy Blogday... the fires are burning around here for you already!

I told you Anx would sort it out. Didn't realize it would take her all day though!

Blogger Anxious said...

Look, murph, I'm tired and emotional... And I have done a couple of other things today. Not much, admittedly...

I haven't worked out the others, though...

6:27 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Nic: You would have got grade A for *Creative French*.
Thanks - that makes me feel sooo Special.

Murph: You cheeky dog!
No Doggy Chocs for you - Oz gets the lot.

AnX: You blogged as well.

Happy Blogday, belatedly.
I can't believe it's a whole year!

And well done for proving the consumer power of blog :)

Thanks BW.
I remember it was you that 'got me going' when you told the world about my fat formula.
That was much appreciated.

Kaz, I missed your blogging birthday! sorry... congratulations...

I can't believe it's nearly 3 weeks since I've done the rounds, mind you, been a bit busy - so having a nice long read now - good stuff, thankyou.
