Sorry, Mary!

Mary, sorry for inadvertently jinxing your last comments thread due to failure to properly close a link tag.

To compensate as best I can, I will provide my original comment replying to your ‘Entertain me!’ request here:

I have found a way to make the best of the targeted advertising on Facebook (which for some reason has only just started appearing in my FB feed).

Because, for my current piece of what I laughably call creative fiction I needed to know about names of women’s fashion stuff (like ‘what on earth is a crop top/tank top/bateau line), I did a fair amount of googling, and visiting clothing sites. Which of course turned out to have a gratifying number of hot models wearing crop tops, tank tops etc. I even know what apparently random strings of words like Raw Edge Cropped Sweatshirt Grey (the model here bears an uncanny resemblance to Keira Knightley) or Capped Sleeve Knot Crop Top White mean.

So far so good!

But now, almost all those highly annoying ads in my FB feed have changed from things like ‘185 years old and no life insurance? CLICK HERE!’, and ‘Project Reality WW2: Feel like killing Nazis?’ to linked images of attractive young women on sites like missguided.co.uk and littleblackdress.co.uk.

Which are actually rather fun.



I realise this may not entertain YOU, but it has improved my quality of life immeasurably.

    A "bateau" neckline is one that extends from shoulder to shoulder, but is narrow from front to back, like a boat. In certain contexts, it could look like one's head is coming out a vagina, however.

    Also, that cat is only holding its paws up because it's waiting for someone official to call the damn touchdown he witnessed already.

    I can't comment in your post KH.

    (Trigger Warning, Simon!)

    Maybe the cat is doing the HUH clap that the Iceland football team/fans do.

    Actually I shouldn't have warned Simon, he damn well had it coming for breaking Mary's thread.

    I'll be OK, once I've had MONTHS AND MONTHS OF TRAUMA COUNSELING! (said in the voice of Craig, from Parks and Rec).
