I just got an email from TomTom, advertising a valentines gift. Hmm, I thought, this should be amusing.

I quote:- Our unique 'I'd be lost without you' package contains a TomTom Start with a Flaming Red cover, with a matching carry bag, a home charger and a exclusive set of hotel, restaurant and shopping addresses for you to explore further.

I'd be lost without you! seriously. wow. way to be 1970's tomtom. also, matching carry bag? shopping addresses?

I'm assuming that they meant to send this to the male half of the valentine.

I think I shall send this to Gadgettes, as suitable punishment.

OTOH perhaps it's just me. Do men now like matching red carry bags for their sat navs? I'll admit, fashion isn't my thing, I may have missed it. I shall expect to see fashionable men, with their man bags and red satnav carry cases any time now. And then I shall feel embarrassed that mine is still in it's original case.

Is the lack of a mocking or sarcastic mood because that's now the assumed default on LJ?

Well, the guys do like their messenger laptop bags, so... perhaps this is actually a trend?

But uh... flaming red? I think that might be aimed at a very select market...

They've removed sarcasm? Maybe it's to stop us all using it so much.

Yeah, because removing the mood would help. Very definition of a lost cause.

Assuming you are who I think you are. Doesn't he have a upcoming birthday?

If you do decide to try it, can I be there when he opens it?

Really? Still? That has to be the most underused RSS feed on the planet.

Poor thing, sitting there, hoping every day there is something to sync. And every day, disappointment!

"Flaming Red to match your passion", a passion expressed through the purchase of sat-nav carry bags! Oh good grief.

Ah, should have figured you would have received the same email. Fun, wasn't it!
