The Smell of Desperation
Since I have pictures to post (that haven't gotten stolen in transit! A prodigy of the US Post!) I had an excuse to muck about on Flickr. I suddenly found myself looking for local single men. I found two Flip Flop groups (out of five total, one private (scandinavians only) and the others were for UCSC and "beaches"), and I thought, voila! I can find artsy men and we already have stuff in common. (Boy, and where they ever "flipflop" I had a moment of naked artistic snobbery as I perused the pages of sunsets and lighthouse scenes. Only one pic of the Pink Umbrella Man! What is wrong with my fellow photags?)
Boy, was I ever wrong. Most of the "single-looking" members all seem to live either in NYC or Germany (what is it with Germany!) or were married or both. You can't browse Fl like you can CL. Its a photo-service, for crying out loud. So I had to laboriously look at people's icons and try and divine if 1) they were male, 2) they were youngish 3) if they were single-and-straight. The selection of men I clicked on probably said more about my taste in icons than it did anything else. Needless to say, no one got a "hi, howya doin?" message from me.
I posted some of my favorite FF pics. Maybe they'll ban me.
Ha Ha, put that in your Tourist Friendly Scenes and smoke it!
Yup, I can take a pic that doesn't need any PSing, dammit! (I have such a bad attitude)
The FF groups will continue to wallow in mediocrity unless we can convince this gentleman to join.
