Sneeky Blogads

I agreed to a Blogad yesterday from MSNBC, totally selling out my sniffy-to-MSM soul.

Well and good. I am an unrepentant Capitalist. Give me five! -- bucks.

But yesterday, it was about broken internet hookups. Today, it's about pr0n...

I hope this is a revolving ad, because this is generally a civilised adult blog, but one which all age groups should feel comfortable in reading.

I didn't sign up for cyber. Freaks.

By the way, a/s/l? Oh and, jpgs!!

UPDATE: I've cooked their randy goose. Placed Liberty News Forum back in its merited first-place.

UNRELATED UPDATE: Take five, lads and ladettes -- I'll compose something more substantive tomorrow. I am inspired by Peru's Cuarto Poder programme last night, which had a delicious Spa Day segment, to go to my own local spa, and treat myself to a caviare mask and seawood body-wrap. But before, the dread bikini wax...pray for me.

    first thing you ask in a chatroom when you...erm want to get to "know" the other person better. Don't ask me how I know.

    No, I whored myself for just a week's worth of $$.

    Ah well. At least I saved on shoe leather this time. ;)

    Lo que Jorge explico tan nicely.

    Here's a funny story.

    The first time I went to a non-friends chatroom (because I have a group of friends who chat online, but I hadn't attempted to go "solo" until this time), I of course got accosted by dozens of Instant Messages (IMs).

    They all asked one thing, although my nick of "Victoria" was possibly a dead-giveaway as to "s/sex".

    (OTOH, the net is all about lying, according to some).

    I texted back to the first one,

    "I have broadband"
    "What?"
    "Broadband, not asl".
    "lol!!111!!"


    I was such a n00b.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    Yeah, what he said!

    Come on, Jorge. We all know you go trolling for random poonanny on #singleshottub!

    ;)

    (Thanks for the lending hand!)

  • The question I have is this:

    How did MSNBC find out about my blog?

    I guess they do what everyone does when searching for ad space -- more bang for your buck price, and who linked to you recently.

    So thanks Michelle and Babalu!

    Although they were truly sneaky in changing the ad from something which I agreed to readily, going by the ad they originally submitted, and then when I approved it, I can't delete them, or ask them to change their logo.

    I told you MSM was up to no good.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Thanks for the free education Jorge and Victoria! I have ventured into blogs, but never a chatroom, yet!

    Just a week's worth of $$? And here I thought you were the type who insisted on long term commitments! ;)

    By Blogger Jose Aguirre, at Mon Dec 12, 12:01:00 am GMT-5  

  • I think MSNBC bought the entire BlogAds network.

    By Blogger JSU, at Mon Dec 12, 12:07:00 am GMT-5  

  • Gee, I like it.
    I'd be right there on 12-14 at 2100 , except guess who is hosting? That's right, Lovely Rita, meter maid, Cosby. I can't watch her, she scares me.

    By Blogger Paul, at Mon Dec 12, 09:09:00 am GMT-5  

  • What if she's doing an age and weight discrimination piece (a la Barbara Ehrenreich)?

    The mind boggles.

    (husky, raspy voice, clipped sentences, but not quite Shatnerian in their clipped-ness)

    "I went deep undercover (cut to grainy footage of Rita in a black afro wig and large sunglasses) in San Fernando Valley, aka Porn Valley and applied for work. Despite my obvious assets they pushed me away from a leading role and expected me to do the drudgery work of a 'fluffer'...."

    You are missing nothing, Jose.

    How much fun you have is exactly correlative to how:

    (1) How fast you can type

    (Me, fast, very fast -- the secret to my prodigious writing output in life)

    (2) How many clothes you have on

    (3) How involved you are with the topic

    I mean, even in sex-chat, or 'cyber', you have to pay attention.

    You can't just be texting:

    "Then I take it off, and put it in ur mouth, and u lick it slowly"

    "The Dolphins are down by 20!!!1!"

    "What?"

    "Oooh, I'm so wet!!1!"

    "Iraqi elections on Fox"



    Etc.

    As in life, you get out of an action, what you put into it.

    Just a week's worth of $$? And here I thought you were the type who insisted on long term commitments! ;)

    I do quickies.

    Cheers,

    OMG. :(

    P.S.: Thanks, JSU. Linkie?

    LOL!! Metre Maid Cosby! Perfect.

    I can't watch her, she scares me.

    Yeah.

    Either she's smoked a million fags by age 9, or she's Harvey Firestein's sister.

    Don't get me wrong, now.

    I like my voice (it's one of my not-so-secret favourite parts of me), but I think it's vastly improved when I have a cold.

    I speak in a low, husky voice that would melt the tidy-whities off of any man.

    Or woman.

    Hey, I know my own strengths.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    Shatnerian. Ohhh that is rich.

    "I went deep undercover (cut to grainy footage of Rita in a black afro wig and large sunglasses) in San Fernando Valley, aka Porn Valley and applied for work.

    With that ultra-dyed highlighted frosted twilight hair of hers, she'd look like a trannie.

    Despite my obvious assets they pushed me away from a leading role and expected me to do the drudgery work of a 'fluffer'...."

    Being a fluff girl sucks.

    Oh shut up.

  • I am apparently the only person in the blogosphere, and perhaps known universe, who finds Rita Cosby annoying, and even more so due to her voice. I find myself constantly itching to hand her a hankie.

    (Ducking.)

    By Blogger reader_iam, at Mon Dec 12, 04:54:00 pm GMT-5  

  • reader_iam - nope we are in it with you, see above, Rita is cloying, annoying, anti-boy-toying.

    I like my voice (it's one of my not-so-secret favourite parts of me), but I think it's vastly improved when I have a cold.

    I wish you'd podcast, even just for me.....the others don't deserve you. The spelling subtleties drive me crazy too.

    I speak in a low, husky voice that would melt the tidy-whities off of any man.

    I must say you are spot on. Just your little profile comment does that. The piece you did in Spanish drives one to ecstasy. I suppose that's sort of like getting your tidy-whities melted. Something happened.

  • Uh, I don't mean they bought BlogAds the company, but that they've put that ad on throughout the network.

    I could be wrong, though. There's a thread about the thing at Ace of Spades.

    By Blogger JSU, at Mon Dec 12, 07:14:00 pm GMT-5  

  • WTF! I just spent hours refreshing to see if my internet connexion was up, yet.

    It was up when I arrived home from the spa (AKA Abu Ghraib), and suddenly, pow, right in the kisser!

    Do you know how painful it is to have red splotches on your crotch and a throbbing index finger?

    It hurts, my friends, it hurts.

    Pow, right in the kisser!

    Are you kidding me, Reader_Iam!

    Come join the "I hate Rita Cosby" party on Sundries.

    Well, okay -- not hate. Just really really frightened of her gargoyle voice.

    Ah right, JSU, thanks.

    I haven't been to many blogs other the Anchoress, and a quick trip to Althouse's (I'm kinda letting Althouse get back up to pre-Pajamas Media hissy fit steam, before I return...it left me with a bad taste in my mouth).

    I saw that Anchoress must've rejected it, but Ann, typically ;), must've approved it, because the raunchier silhouette is there.

    You know the one -- Gloria Steinem's boob profile when she was a Playboy bunny.

    I could be wrong, though. There's a thread about the thing at Ace of Spades.

    I posted to it.

    Ace said he got an email prior, suggesting he got a preview in case he wanted to turn it down.

    I don't know if I would've turned it down. I think not, but at least I would've been less peeved.

    Ooh, Family Guy on the Toon Network is on! *g*

    I will blog domani, I think. Maybe if I get a second wind tonight, I shall.

    Cheers,
    Victoria
