Why I take it all back. Fran is good. Really good.
I take back everything I said about wanting to be called Pauline and not Fran. My daughter (who has her own blog here about the year in Japan she has just embarked upon) has just sent me this picture from Japan of a type of chocolate there. My name is officially linked with chocolate. I am very, very happy. Chocolates called Pauline just wouldn't be the same.
|Now chocolate and Fran were officially linked, she could see no reason|
why she should limit her consumption. In time, the doors would need widening,
but that was just how it would have to be.
What's that expression...'it was calling my name...'?ReplyDelete
Fran I love you. At least 3 times a day I have to have you. I'm addicted to you Fran but unlike other sweets you won't rot my teeth 'cos you just melt in my mouth. Fran you are perfect.ReplyDelete
Polly, put the kettle on.
Deborah - chocolate has been calling my name for a long time. Actually, I answer whoever's flipping name it's calling. I hear it speak. I eat.ReplyDelete
Steve - ooh er.
Well, there you are then.ReplyDelete
Pauline Praline just doesn't cut the mustard, does it? How does a Fran Flake sound? Not that I'm suggesting, for one moment, that you're flakey.ReplyDelete
Friko - yes, all sorted. I promise I won't moan again.ReplyDelete
Martin - Of course you're not. I know you wouldn't dream of it.
I'm tittering at MartinH. Pauline Praline indeed.ReplyDelete
But Fran is a lovely name - nice and soft to say. Pauline is just too plosive and could never lend itself to confectionery - not chocolate confection anyway - maybe pear drops.ReplyDelete
And the Japanese don't put many calories in their chocolate. It's a well known fact so your daughter need not worry:-)
Those chocolate bars do definitely tip the scales in favour of Fran .ReplyDelete
P.S. Internet is wonderful , isn't it ? I didn't know they ate chocolate with chopsticks in Japan .
Lucky you! My name is linked with grape pop (racinette). I don't like grape pop:-(ReplyDelete
Can I have some Fran chocolate?ReplyDelete
Ooooo - love the look of Fran chocolates!!ReplyDelete
So pleased that you've got it licked!ReplyDelete
Fran in her many exotic moods, but which is the real Fran? (That one in the middle looks a bit dodgy so don't go for that one, will you?)ReplyDelete
You have your own chocolate? Why haven't you told us you were famous in Japan?ReplyDelete
Bon. Trés bon. Bonbon even.ReplyDelete
Bluestocking Mum - Martin's comments are very titteratable, I find.ReplyDelete
Lane - that's great news about the low-calorie Japanese chocolate. The best news I've had all week, in fact.
SmitandSon - I must admit, I couldn't be bothered with the chopsticks for chocolate. Just the bare, grabbing hands work fine.
WW - only if you're very good.
Jemi - hands off. Mine.
Christine - very good, very good!
Chris -which is the real Fran? The eternal question.
Alexandra - I didn't KNOW I was famous. Now I do, I'm just sitting here waiting for all the calls....
Carolina - Ha ha!
Lane - Unfortunately, the result is, it doesn't taste very nice.ReplyDelete
SmitoniusAndSonata - They really don't.
In response to everyone - the one on the left is the original version, just chocolate, the one in the middle is strawberry flavoured and the one on the left is actually green tea flavoured.
Oy, Japanese Student, stop fraternising with my followers! Get off! (Apologies, peoples. You know how kids are. Just getting under your feet all the time.)ReplyDelete
Chocolate, by any other name, would taste as sweet. In other words, they could call it cow poop and I'd eat it. I might not TELL anybody I ate it, but I'd eat it. Dammit.ReplyDelete
Japanese Student, what about the one on the RIGHT? :-p
