predictive giggles  
I am sure I'm not alone in finding Gmail's predictive advertising amusing. I do so love Gmail, and I'm not complaining in any way. In fact, I'd say that the random associations thrown up by the predictive advertising enhance rather than detract from my email enjoyment.

But nothing, NOTHING tops today's treasure.

So I'm beta-ing a Clex fic that may possibly have mentioned Clark's unfortunate habit, of, er, you know, LYING. (Anonymity preserved here, because seriously, what fic *doesn't* mention it?!) And guess what I find myself linked to when I pull up the email with the fic in it?

Too perfect for words! *g*

Haha. The funniest part is that it takes 21 days, according to the website. AND ONLY FOR $97 OMG I NEED ONE!?

*giggle* Right! I think we should all sign up!
(I so want someone to write the fic where Clark stumbles on this website and joins and gets spammed with crazy marketing jargon and gets dragged along to 'inspirational' speakers and so on!)

Only 21 days?! YAY!!!

that would be a funny story! i've read several fics about clark on the internet, and they usually crack me up.

now google thinks you're a compulsive liar, though. their intuitive marketing thing creeps me out a bit. ;)

Hee. I've moved through the freak out to the amusement. I think there was even a 'cool' phase in there somewhere. Now it wants me to either buy a grill or robes from Hogwarts. I like how it must think I'm either 5 people or schizophrenic!

I think I'd ask for Slytherin too. Though apparently I'm a Ravenclaw.

Today Gmail really wants to pimp the word 'plaudits' to me. I'm not sure whether to be flattered that it thinks it appropriate to me or insulted that it thinks I require a definition.

i really need to use my gmail account more, to see what it tries to pimp to me! what kind of products correlate to the word 'plaudits'? hmmm...

And I like your Laura-Starbuck one. You seem to have a lot of new icons, lately!

Thank you! *g* Yes, I do have some newbies. I've recently widened my icon 'net'. I still have the insatiable thirst for new icons... it's neverending!

Hee funny! I wonder what ads I would get if I emailed NC17 fic from the smallville slash archive. Especially fic that focused on the lying and sex.

Heh! I think I saw someone on my f'list experimenting with that the other day. I don't think it worked that well as Gmail is a bit too 'clean' for that.

heeeeeeeeeee. Your google ads win!

That is awesome. I need to start paying more attention to those ads. They're always so funny!
