Busty tries a bit of suck it and see…

gossip-three-23-300x30011I do love a loyalty card – don’t you girls? What’s not to like about receiving perfectly targeted money-off vouchers? Of course, us sisters love a bargain (have you ever met anyone who has paid full-price for anything?) so I always look forward to getting my Boots Advantage Card and Superdrug offers – and the letters always appeal to the girl in me.
But a chance conversation with former Lida creative boss Shaun Moran – who recently co-founded the agency Soul – has got me in a spin.
Apparently he is more than in touch with his feminine side as it is him who writes all the girlie stuff in the Superdrug missives. I must admit he certainly makes a good woman – on paper at least – but a bloke writing as a girl? It’ll never catch on…
Anyway, back to me and as you know I do have a bit of a penchant for married men. Thing is, they shower you with gifts and then they sod off back to the missus so you don’t have to put up with their snoring…
Not to say that current flame Tarquin Farquhar is on the way out. He’s got far too much money to be dumped, but they do say variety is the spice of life; and I do love of bit of variety and spice in the bedroom.
To cut a long story short I decided to sign up to a dating site – naughtydating.com – to suck it and see, so to speak. But no sooner was I on there than my profile was appearing on loads of other sites, too, including shagbook.com and even something called localslappers.com… I mean, come on, me, a slapper? How hurtful…
I’ve also started getting targeted ads appearing all over my hotmail account for other sites. These people certainly know their stuff, I’ll grant them that, but MatureDating.com? Pleeeeeeeeeese spare me.
Mind you I did see that they’ve had their bums whacked by the ASA this week for posting a “sexually suggestive” ad on YouTube. Sexually suggestive, my arse – it is downright offensive. Did you see the state of the woman in the ad? Then again, if that ‘model’ is the best they’ve got to offer, I should be raking them in…
One man who is no longer raking it in is the lovely Dave Harris, who has walked out of Wunderman this week. Poor thing; he’d been having a great time there for years, heading up his own creative department, working on some great brands, and winning pitches – not to mention the nice little trips to Cannes for global creative ‘networking’.
Next thing he knows his old nemesis Mrs Cruickshank turns up and he’s brushed aside like an empty Magic Marker. Ah well Dave, if you are looking for a new career, you could always reinvent yourself as a woman – it’s the latest trend you know…
