Personal ad from weekly newspaper. Variants on this have been running for months:

Please respond only if you don't masturbate anymore, you believe in celibacy outside of marriage, you want eventually marriage with a compatible woman, you're skinny or lean, nonsmoking, honest, agnostic or atheist, 40-60. I'm very affectionate in marriage. I'm a gentle, assertive, compassionate DWF 50, slender, attractive, 5'6", 120#.


What gets me is the atheist part. Now I can dimly, intellectually, understand that there are sex-phobic Jesus freaks, uh, excuse me, I mean "Christians with traditional values," who think masturbation is bad for some reason, but I've never heard of an atheist who gives a damn. Is there some currently fashionable quack diet or self-help rigmarole out there that advocates this, or is this woman just a freak all by herself?

But hey, whatever floats her boat. Hope she's not holding her breath, though.

(sigh).

Okay, so it goes like this. I'm kind of a frequent flyer at the Library of Moria slash archive. Tthe other night I was cruising their guestbook and saw they had a bit of a moron-flamer problem going on, and it struck me funny that one of the frothing dolts was signing in as "Witch King of the Nazgul." Now, I am NOT actually the Witch-King myself (despite what it says a few entries down), but it just so happens one of my most persistent Muses is.

So because I'd had some coffee and decided I had at least as much right to snark about with that persona as this dolt, I decided to do a little Tolkienslashy performance art in the guest book. (it was a one-woman show; I played the part of Shelob too - yes, I trade insulty banter with myself all the time, why do you ask?)

I thought it was amusing at best really, and felt bad about taking up more than my fair share of guestbook space with it, but I never would have suspected that there would be people who didn't get the joke! Yes, guestbook entries run in reverse order, but that alone doesn't seem enough to explain it. You be the judge. Read more... )

Hardly worth all the kaffufle, but there you go. Apologies to the good folks at LoM for taking up even more spots trying in vain to explain myself.
