Why kids shouldn't watch commercials.

Me, on the scales: wow, I've lost another kilo! ( 2 pounds circa )
13 y-o daughter: good Mom!
Me: yes, but actually I don't feel it, I feel kind of bloated.
13 y-o daughter: (insert jingle here) Activia!

  3. I never watch tv nowadays so I'm glad to say I never see any adverts and with the Sky box set we have even if I watch the music channels, I can just fast forward through them all!

    Well done for losing the weight!

  5. Jamie Lee Curtis at her best - did I read a while back though that the government has filed suit against activia for making claims that can't be substantiated - not sure if this is accurate. hope you are doing well my friend! :-) sorry I've not been around much; swamped with this school stuff and I'm not even enrolled yet!!

  7. I've heard that Activa really cleans a person's innards out. I've not yet tried it.

    2.2 lbs, yes. This Canadian born and bred gal knows her weight conversions, as well as temperature and kilometers!

    Whooohoo.

    Just feels so great to say whoooo hooo!!

    And how come your English is so excellent? You were a whiz kid at school??

    Xxoo

  8. Mama Zen, thanks!

    Jannie, you are flattering me, haha!
    About your question, I think a good dose of blogging and google word verification.
    So we share the same 'values'! Whoohoo!
    I actually have problems with temperature conversion.
    Thanks for your visit.
    XOXO
