I put my green card in my right shoe. Something something, right shoe.

I am constantly being annoyed by that stupid brum brumming frog thing that appears to have become all the rage with mobile users who are either blind and deaf or entirely daft. I can't see how any competent and intelligent person can tolerate such an intensely annoying, ugly and repetitive character. Really, to call it a frog is an insult to all frogs around the world. It's an insult to Freddo and Kermit and the Frog Prince and all their kin.

I sent the picture below out to a few friends the other week, and I still find that it adequately describes my sentiments towards the inane creature. I would pay to see that!


I had a most interesting evening at work last night with a former London cabbie, who was in his late 50's - early 60's, trying to chat me up and filling my evening with some rather obscene (and obvious) sexual innuendo.

For example: Me (handing him the thermometer): "Put this under your tongue." Him (taking the thermometer): Shouldn't I be saying that to you?

Or: Him (checking my hands for any sign of a wedding ring): You can be mine tonight. I'll put you in my room and lock the door and you can stay with me... Because I'll need extra nursing care. (wink wink)

I have no problem with a little sexual innuendo interspersed with witty banter (as anyone who knows me will attest to). However, when it's coming from a guy who is old enough to be my father and who is my patient it's just not quite kosher. I came home feeling dirty, and not in a good way. :o( Stupid icky people. Rasberries to them!!! *Throws in a trumphant HA HA! just for good measure.*

how appropriate that your word verification thing is asking me to type "parpkp", when you finished your post with a raspberry!

Anyway... totally agree with you on the frog thing. If Eldest Daughter is heard going "brum brum" she gets put in the bin. She has been warned.

It's the law that men have to flirt with nurses, especially lovely looking ones. :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog, Yaeli. Maybe a come back to the old cabbie could have been: "If it's small enough to fit under my tongue--I'm not interested!"

I've not seen the 'brum brum' frog here in the states. It might not have spread to these shores yet.

as utenzi said, no frog in the states. but there are plenty of other annoying ad characters. i actually just wrote about some.

When I was a cocktail waitress, I used to get guys like that cabbie. A bit of flirting is fun, but there is a line, and when it is crossed, it just feels gross.

funny thing about the whole 'frog in the blender' thing is that what you're actually being exposed to down there in the land of oz is a ripoff thins other blended frog thing from like 1999 that originally came from joecartoon (a website), so every time you see someone talking about the frog in the blender, just tell them theyre so six years too late. Hope it helps n toodles,

Hi Yaeli. The only word that comes to mind when I read of your experience is, "Ew!" Some old men truly are dirty. And encountering them makes one want to go home NOW and take a shower.

Then again, some women can accomplish much the same thing. Lechery isn't limited to any one gender, unfortunately.

BTW, happy b-day to your blog. You've totally beaten the odds.
