You Send me

'50 original gems - The Roots of Soul' a double CD from FOPP costing £3 which Kev brought home as a gift for Kaz.

Tight? Kev?

As it was playing, he Googled Sam Cooke.

Then he asked ...
'Kaz .... er .... Had your Sam Cooke got long blonde hair and an impressive chest?'

'Yes to the hair, but her chest was pretty average'.

He showed me the picture which I compared with my snap taken in 2005.

KAZ's photo - click to check it's Sam.

And Yes! It's the same person - before enhancement.

My Sam Cooke was Samantha. She spent three years in my A level Chemistry class. Her brain was spot on, her attitude wasn't.

But I liked her. Even when totally outrageously in the wrong she made me laugh. Even when her lateness was unforgivable we were entertained by her repartee and great outfits.

Sam usually did her prac. with a dopey lad called Dave. No one understood my Sam and Dave 'Hold on I'm coming' jokes.

So my Sam Cooke has done well for herself - Page three girl, cover of NUTZ, FHM, Loaded etc.. She's even talking politics.

Obviously with my immaculate feminist credentials I have difficulty with this.

But hey - Several of my students have done well but they never had their own calendar.

Here's the real thing.

Well, her periodic table seems to be in good order. She can ignite my bunsen burner anytime.

She still has an interest in chemistry: Silicone!

Your pic looks like an art installation with the odd poses.

With Take That and Sam Cooke it sounds like your Chemistry class was a crucible of popular culture.

Now that explains the Sam Cooke reference on my blog but I did think singer and not page three. For the life of me when you wrote it on my blog I couldn't think what the link between Sam Cooke and Maggie Thatcher could possibly be?
Anyway YOUR Sam looks fab. I don't have any issues with women taking their clothes off if they choose. To me it's celebrating their beauty but I know not everyone agrees with that.

Don't know much about a science book? Obviously a lie.

I was disappointed none of my classmates became Page 7 Fellas. Though I am kind of related to someone who has been in sexy firemen calendars.

I never read the sun so didn't know the page 3 girls were also giving out news snippets - obviously as the campaign pointed out - not the real opinions of the girls but editorial hogwash - but checking out Sam (the girl)'s twitter tweets she sounds pretty mindless anyway "shooting for loaded today, modellings bloody hard u know! im all shaky and weak now! these uncomfortable bloody positions!" - 5 seconds eye-candy maybe but give me the one who can sing anyday.

She's a fiery wench.

Silicone is a polymer of silicon and oxygen rather like this with other atoms attached. (Si - O - Si - O - Si - O - Si)
It gives a rubbery substance.
End of lesson.

They were certainly posing esp. Sam.
Note the complete lack of safety specs.
The other Orange became a Chemistry teacher - but he could be Cosmopolitan's Hunk of the Month by now.

I bet my Sam was a Thatcher supporter.
I love women's bodies - but not page three etc. Just soft porn.

Great quote - I should have used that in the post.

I read the tweets as well.
But you have to admit she has an attitude.

Bet she's a hit at the school reunions. Yet another brush with fame. I am envious.

7:15 pm  
Blogger mago said...

Whether she pumps them up according to the occasion? Like Ms Anderson?

Do you remember when breasts looked like breasts and not genetically modified fruit?

12:30 am  
Blogger Dave said...

Can I just clarify that I am not the Dopey Dave to whom you refer.

We didn't have girls in our Chemistry lessons. Or any others, come to that. Fairly common issue at a Boys Grammar School. No doubt this explains a lot about me.

7:58 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

FE colleges don't tend to have reunions.
They just make a run for it after the exams.

I have studied the pics for you and I do notice a considerable variation.

Yes - and those were the days when women could smile and frown.

Perhaps if you'd worked with Sam you would have passed with grade A.

Blogger Roses said...

*grooving to Sam*

That must be a pretty weird sensation, seeing an ex-student with very little clothes on.

She's not my student and I feel weireded out. Shame she didn't go for the bigger grades rather than the bigger boobies.

9:25 am  
Blogger Dave said...

I don't think I'd ever pass Chemistry with an A. On the other hand, I don't suppose Sam would have had any complaints.

9:43 am  
Blogger Macy said...

A Level Chemistry???? The poor girl must be bored witless hanging out with other page 3 girls...
That would explain the look on her face if the second photo.

8:22 pm  
Blogger I, Like The View said...

I remember my first Sam Cooke album and most of the lyrics, but I don't remember any page three girls at all*. . .

. . .and I've probably forgotten every last bit of Chemistry 'A'-level

why is that!

(*Sam Fox? perhaps?)

10:42 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

No - she'd be late with a hangover, so you'd do all the work.

I bet she'd be longing to talk about nucleophilic substitution reactions.

Sam Cook is (was) wonderful.
When I started teaching I'd forgotten all my A level Chemistry as well. Perhaps it's just not a memorable as Sam Cooke.
No surprise there!
We must apologise to Dave for reminding him of his only failure in life.

8:18 am  
Blogger Roses said...

You forgot me! You forgot me!

*flounces off in a girly huff*

9:08 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Oh - Roses - what can I say?
I absolutely hate doing that. It won't happen again.
But you're in good company - I did it to Dave last month
Re the comment - I'd already thought about it and deided that Sam could never settle for life looking down a test tube..

9:44 am  
Blogger zIggI said...

I read the first sentence as 50 original GERMS - it threw me a bit.

5:10 pm  
Blogger mago said...

I have no nuckleophilic pacifying substitution. And no reactions too. Maybe I'm dead already.

5:52 pm  
Blogger Roses said...


8:57 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Bet you're glad your girls are on a gap year when you see what happened to Sam.

Nucleophilic substitution reactions sometimes feature 'backside attack' like this one

I'll make it up to you.
Chocs? Wine? TLC?

Put Him In A Bikini & The Difference Would Be Even More Striking!

Blogger mago said...

Is that chemical porn?

5:09 pm  
Blogger Roses said...

Wine. Red, red wine.

Or cider.

Or olives.

I love guilt gifts, they're so much better than the usual fare.

Blogger xl said...

"backside attack"

Picking up the slack whilst MJ is on holiday!

6:15 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Oh yes.
And I take full credit.

'Him' - I presume you refer to Beast.

If it rings your bells.

Cider with Roses?
We'll stick with the red wine.

Honestly - it is the scientific term.
Please don't expect nekkid old men on Friday.

Sam Cooke...

Accept no imposters.

Only the original will do.

But then I'm mad for Motown, me.

Blogger dinahmow said...

Just home from my little I too late to opine that Samantha Cooke doesn't sound like a Brazilian name?

5:30 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Me too.
Welcome back.

Another wanderer returns.
It's more a Wythenshawe name.

5:57 pm  
Blogger chazza said...

oh dont. . Lol. Been a while thinking Science. . .back to the day of our poor ole Nun who had a slight lisp.

We had to be real careful as we couldnt understand if she said taste or test of experiments. . .x

Wow, I've worked with girls who modeled on the side before, but I've never had chem lab with a FHM model before. I expect I wouldn't get much work done. My brain wouldn't function well.

9:37 pm  
Blogger Dave said...

Could you move on and write something new please? The picture at the start of this post is most distracting, every time I pop over here.

9:39 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Hi Memphis Steve:
You'd be OK - the wearing of labcoats was compulsory.

I was feeling a bit lazy this week. Won't be long.

I like Gladys Knight.

11:24 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

I believe Gladys speaks very highly of you too.

There was a page three girl at my school. I mean she was doing page three whilst she was at school.
She was very popular.

That is a great story and I would love to see..I mean read more aboot it.

Build a better ________ and the world will beat a path to your door.

You can $ell this to the Tabloids if she gets bigger. Those 24/7 paprags are starving for filler.
I'll bet she was awfully nice...
and yes I absolutely love using the term awfully nice.

Did anyone channel Dolby and say, "She blinded me with SCIENCE!"

7:30 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Was it you?
I presume it was a mixed school - unlike Dave's.

I'm contacting my agent as I type.
She was always the kind of gal who'd make it big - (one way or the other)

8:24 am  
Blogger Scarlet Blue said...

Ha ha! No it wasn't me.... it did give all us girls some ideas though!

Blogger white rabbit said...

One thing about the opinions of the page 3 girls (excuse as to how I know the following: I sometimes pick up abandoned copies of the Sun on public transport) is that they are a p[erfect fit with the editorial line of the Sun.

I'll believe in their authenticity when I read 'I think Brirtain should join the euro and legislate to stop geriatric billionaires of flexible nationality arrangements poisoning our media with their distortions, lies and bullying'

4:59 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

All this is true - but Sam's mum left Sam's dad and started buying and selling property.
She got quite rich.
So I suspect Sam will be a Dave supporter.
