If you go to Keyword GRAPEVINE, you'll find my picture and under it is a very racy quote about sexual innuendos that was taken completely out of context by AOL. Funny how they hold us to one standard and practice another.
The quote was from an answer to one of Patrick's Saturday Six. "How would you rate your journal?" And I said, "R" for swear words, although I wasn't adverse to sexual innuendos, if I could remember one. That was supposed to be an old people joke, not a come on.
Apparently they thought they were doing me a favor using the quote the way they did. Like I was trolling for dates or something.
I thought when the editor wanted my picture, the plan was to link to an entry in my journal.
Instead they pretty much made me the poster girl for one night stands. They might as well have said, "Hey all you pervs and lonely guys, here's a chick who likes to do it in the road -- be sure to contact her."
You know what this means, don't you. I've been IM'd by all kinds of guys who usually start out, "Hi, Sexy." * gag *
And where do they get off calling me HUN and LOVE? WTF?
A married guy went to the FOR GIRLS ONLY entry in my journal and read my list of 100 attributes for my latest ideal man. He then told me he had none of those attributes and offered his services. He also said he used Viagra. 0-70 with no brakes.
What are they thinking? That the internet gives you carte blanche to skip from Hello to Honey, let's hump in the next sentence?
My personal favorite was Jffsing, I think, whose hometown pic was of him from the waist down in his black Speedo. Looked like there was a muffler in his pants.
Charmed, I sure.
Here comes another IM.
UPDATE: September 24th. Finally asked AOL to take my profile [picture, quote, link to this journal, etc] down. Let somebody else deal with those guys.
