For those of you who are regular
stalkers visitors you’d have noticed that the Linkies section is no more. It just wasn’t working out between me and Linkies, so I told her that we had to have a talk and I told it to her straight, “It’s not you, it’s me”. She started to cry and begged for me to take her back, but we both knew it was time to move on. She hung around for a bit after ‘the talk’, said she wanted to be friends and then I finally had enough, I dumped her database and told her that she had to move on. It’s just not healthy.
I didn’t stay without a web application for long. A few months ago I started seeing Del.icio.us, it started out with a few innocent clicks, I noticed that she was quite popular on other blogs and I liked her style. Sexy and simple, an application next door. So I asked her…
“Would you be my preferred link blog application?”
She said yes of course. I gave her the nickname ‘Liciouslinks’, she moved into my sidebar, and we’ve been going steady ever since.
Although I must confess to you that I have been cheating on Miss Del.icio.us with another application. Flickr. She is my mistress and has been for some time. She caught my attention a late last year, she was casually showing off some photos on another blog, and since then we’ve been making sweet photo uploads together. She’s so classy, yet so powerful.
I hope Miss Del.icio.us doesn’t mind, I’m sure she won’t, she’s cool like that. Not like that bitch Linkies.
gets a bit worrying when we start personifying things isnt it miss kitta?
Althoough i must say i did have a run in with a wheelie bin upon returning home in the early hours of the morning. He was blocking the walkway and i didnt see him while walking. we had a brief encounter afterwards about who had right of way, but all he could do was lie there and enjoy the night starscape.
By the way, what makes you think that Flickr and Linkies are females ? :p
Having been a regular sta…, I mean visitor, for some time now, it was not hard for me to recognize linkies wondering aimlessly around the net. You will be happy to know that when asked how she was dealing with this major breakup, she told me that, when it comes to her long relationship with you, it is better to have clicked and lost, then to never have clicked at all. Just though you would like to know that.
Alex, at least I’m not beating up a wheelie bin. 😉
Kayhadrin, because the entry sounded better if they were ladies.
I think personifying the stuff is funny, it makes it interesting to read about why you changed the linkies instead of a short “I changed the linkies because…”, which would keep my attention for about 2 seconds.
I have noooooo idea what you’re talking about…. Ok, I do, but I’m just not grasping the concept. Its ok though, you had me at Stalker.
Thats quite original, I must admit, but cheating on Del.icio.us with Flicker? Tsk tsk tsk. Such a player. ;X
wow what meds are you on now!! now you talking to links and database?? give me some lol lol lol
Max, I know, but it’s hard to resist that vixen Flicker.
Dan, no drugs were used during the writing of the above entry, although large amounts of sarcasm have been detected in laboratory tests.
