When you see the adverts for 4g phones, and realise that one’s own phone is just scraping 1½g. Two at a pinch. Bah. No-one rings me on it, anyway!
However, I must say OMG about the adverts on American TV for prescription drugs – we don’t (obviously) have adverts on the TV for these over here and I’m bloody glad! If you’ve never seen one, nip to Hulu and watch for a while you’ll soon run across one – this is basically what they are like:
“If you suffer from XXX – then you’ll know how inconvenient it can be, not only the pain, but the way it restricts you from doing what you want to do. PRESCRIPTION DRUG can help, so talk to your doctor to see if PRESCRIPTION DRUG is right for you.
P.D. may cause the following side affects. Depression (often the drug is FOR depression). PD may cause headaches Dizziness Coughing Fatigue Myalgia Viral Infection Rhinitis Nausea and/or Vomiting Abdominal Pain Back Pain Diarrhoea Upper Respiratory Infection Insomnia Somnolence Bronchitis Dyspepsia Asthenia Pharyngitis Vasodilatation Vertigo Chest Pain high blood pressure, eye problems, uterine bleeding and in occasional cases coma and or death. So do speak to your doctor to see if PRESCRIPTION DRUG can make your life a better one.
!!!!!!!!!! (and that’s NOT an exaggeration!)
Watched Tristan and Isolde today – God. How DULL was that? I couldn’t get to the end – how on earth could they have made it SO bloody dull? With the delicious Rufus Sewell? Awful. Just awful.
looks like the Christmas dragons are the same as last year too.Erastes
