  • [Spam] How can I find a reliable company in Russia?

    Hi! I am trying to send some flowers to a friend of mine who
    lives in a little village called Anastasievskaja,
    which i am told is between Krasnodar and Anapa (Russia).
    Does anyone know who delivers flowers to such a small village for me?

    I warned you it was only the beginning, see what laxity brings :roll: ? 'But it's in good fun, yadda, yadda.'...What's next? Ads for Viagra? Spamming monkeys ...

      I know a former lady KGB agent, Minjin Khashbat, who is a very reliable courier, but I'm not sure the fees would be worthwhile :?

        I think Una might be heading that way, but I'm not sure how she'd feel about carrying flowers in her kit bag. They'd probably end up covered in gun oil and such. :(

        Um... it's always possible that it's a genuine question, isn't it? Or should I just go and blush under my quilt of naivety?

          Certainly not, Dee; you are (to pinch an End of Time epithet) the best of us.

          Mind you, remember Una was an actress - should be used to handling bouquets and that sort of stuff.

          Personally, apart from aforementioned ex-Secret Police girl, I'm not sure I've found any particularly reliable organisations in the former USSR. Probably even worse these days, now that glasnost has given everyone the freedom to be a first-rate criminal! :D

          Sorry if there are any Russians, Poles, Latvians, Ukrainians, Kazakhs, etc listening in. My experience is obviously limited and I stand to be corrected. I just suspect it to involve bribery. In dollars :lol:

            Well, if you really love her, you'll take her Edelweiss.

Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

              Maybe this calls for a Letter to Putin ?
              Oh, god -- I just made a terrible google error. Putin Moorcock...
              Now we ARE in trouble.
              Actually I'd try Interflora. They have agents everywhere. Remember that James Bond movie -- The Spy Who Flowered Me ?
              I knew it. I DO have a temperature.
              Apologies.

                Is her name Natasha? If so, my friend, I must challenge you to a duel!

                You may send her food, but flowers is my job!

                  I saw Die Another Dahlia and Lawnraker! :)

                  Have some Benylin, Mike. Hope you feel better soon. Try to persuade your kitties to act as throatwarmers.

                    Benylin knocks me out for about three days. My cats are better at bloodletting. Who knows ? A lot of old-fashioned remedies are coming back into style. Who would marry Goldfinger ? Whoever sent him flowers From Rosie With Love ? In Casino soil ? OK. OK. Maybe I'll go and look for the Bennie bottle. This could be a mistake, though...

                      I'm not sure I would trust the russians with your flowers - you'll likely end up with a dose of dioxin.

                        Maybe the "flowers" are a symbol for something else, or a secret message or ...? It is very difficult to fathom the deep Russian soul, and when you go there with whatever intentions the Winter fouls it all up, ask Naopoleon and some of the others.

                          I haven't seen that, but I have seen The Spy Who Deflowered Me, but that was a very rude film, and I blush at the very thought of it. :oops: See?

                            That may well be the sub-title of every Bond-movie, I think...

                            Perhaps I should stop the heresy before the Secret Service reads this... *coughs*

                              Hmm. The Russian Army fields a very large Self-propelled Gun (175mm, I think) called The Chrysanthemum. :? This is getting v. suspicious.
