Have you got a bear in your freezer?



Among the usual dross, trying to sell me things I don't want; trying to persuade me that their vision for my life is much more desirable that what I have and I could have it if I just bought their product; there are a series of adverts for a frozen food company that make me smile every time they air and they feature a slightly disturbing polar bear.



Things are fine here. Just very very busy at work and my spare time has mostly been split between chores and having a big clear out and tidy (I have too much junk) and working on wedding photos and compiling a photobook for the bride and groom as a gift. I'm very pleased with how it looks and can't wait to see the final printed version myself.

I'm glad you're still around. Don't work so hard, even though you probably have to.

"Been there, done that," as they say.

Cheers.

I'm more likely to buy the bear from those adverts than the frozen food as it's the bear that I remember from them! :D

These are cute... I really can't stand most commercials... well, I do like the e-trade baby. But this bear is cute.... the "I'm watching you" is a bit disturbing... but still cute.

It took me a while to post about Scarlett. She was 15 but I really thought it would be Chloe who went first. Her brother, Rhett, misses her more than I expected he would. He cries quite a bit right now and is not his ever sneaky self.

There is somethimg sweet but rather creepy, too, about the Bear. He's not like "HAL" in "@001" but that is the first thing I thought of . But I think these Ads are very clever and appealing anyway. I can see why they make you smile...!
Glad you are okay and just working hard, my dear. And creating, too...The Wedding Book sounds quite wonderful!

Thanks for coming by, my dear---it's always so good to see your comments.....I hope all is well with you and that it is your heavy schedule of work that keeps you from blogging. It does take a goodly amount of time away from "life". (lol).

Today is July 11th....Lordy, where is this year going?

I checked again, but still no bear in freezer.

Rashbre - you've been done! I would set up an online petition if I were you, including a 'Polar bear for PM' petition ;-)
