On matrimonial harmony

I wanted to text the other half to remind him to do something. My phone usually says "Text delivered" with a happy twang, but it didn't this time. So I tried again.

And again.

And again.

And again. Getting a bit peeved now. Stupid phone, why won't you send?

Finally a text message appeared with a twang...

"I get the hint."


From gentle reminder to nagging fishwife, courtesy of the wonders of modern technology.

I wouldn't usually complain about perfume adverts as they tend to be just blue-pencilled weird and incomprehensible, but my wtf levels are exceeded by the Coco Mademoiselle advert.

Keira Knightly motorbikes to a photo-shoot to the strains of "it's a man's world". She flounces about on a bed, flirting with the camera as a model/actress is supposed to do. The photographer gets horny and he gets on top of her to kiss her. She stops him, tells him to go and lock the door, and when he turns round, she's gone out the window.

So this is the oh-so sexy* tale of an attempted rape, then?
