Something fishy going on....

So, today I met up with a friend of mine and we went for lunch at Bluewater. It was lovely, and my friend got a staff discount in La Tasca because she works in the one up at Canary Wharf. Woo!

We wandered around the shops afterwards and as we were walking around the upper level I looked over the balcony and saw a stand advertising Seven Seas Cod Liver Oil. They had a gigantic inflatable fish!

I had to go for a closer look. There was a bloke in a fish suit! My friend didn't want to be associated with a person taking photos of a guy in a fish suit - I'm not sure why, I thought it was hilarious! - so stood a little distance away while I snapped a couple of shots.

We had fun. We went and tried on some dresses as I'm her bridesmaid and she wanted to get some ideas for her dress and mine. Found some gorgeous dresses. I saw one I so want for a black tie dinner I have coming up soon. But it's £145 and I really can't justify it, but it's sooooooooooo nice. *sigh*

Oh well, I better get to bed. Just wanted to share with you the crazy things you can see in an English shopping centre. Haha.

That's a lot of promotion - a costume guy and a giant blow-up fish - for some oil sales.

Looks like fun, though.

Well they gotta do SOMETHING to promote Cod Liver Oil...who the hell willingly puts that into their body? BLECH.
Would the inflatable fish make it that much more appealing? NOPE...but it's worth a giggle.

I would dress up in a big fish suit, just because I think it would be funny.

Does that pay very well? Ah, who cares, I'd do it anyway.

And to think I used to love to go fishing.
