Apropos Advertisements

My holiday shopping has resulted in some ... interesting combinations for my ad experiences. Enjoy.

  1. I have found that the ads on CM tend to mirror my internet shopping habits.

    First there was a clinique ad. Then I refreshed, and it was Belk. This is on account of the fact that I am a chubby middle-aged lady with sensitive skin and a penchant for fiestaware.

    Victoria's Secret would never show up on my CM page. This is because my own personal favorite underpants are from Lands' End.

    You, Maybelle, apparently lead a far more interesting life than I do.

    1. Actually, Victoria's Secret has a nice selection of business casual and suits on the website. Combine that with coupons, and I was able to fulfill my (old) job's dress code requirement for a reasonable price.

      The ads, however, are always scantily clad ladies. It paired well with the Reg W posting, much like a fine wine.

    2. Now you have totally crushed my impression of you as a lace-clad libertine. I hope you're happy.

    3. Oh, I am a lace-clad libertine. You ever meet me in person, all it'll cost you is a hot beverage and I'll dish about how my knowledge of bondage knots made for an interesting senior year in college, among other tales of debauchery.

    4. But the important question is: Did you do it in the library?

    5. Not in the library; not even the Clinton kind.

  2. I keep getting ads for marrying young Filipino women. Which is disturbing because I am already married, and I have a lot of Filipino relatives... I see and the ads and I don't think "hot!" I think "that reminds me, we need to have my niece and her husband over for dinner soon."

  3. My ads are for on line programs for grad degrees in Computer Science and social work. What do I have to do around here to get my due props as a lace-clad libertine, too?

  4. I'm alternatively getting the gecko and delice contour cup bra ads from Freshpair. I don't get it. Really I don't.

    1. You and Cal have the same problem, Terry. Or so I'm told. (And told, and told...)
