Hasselhoff t-shirts - www.tshirtgrill.com - Original printed Hasselhoff t-shirts-three designs

THIS IS ENTIRELY BEST BELOVED'S FAULT. Oh my god, Gmail, I am NOT THIS PERSON. Send Best Beloved the Hasselhoff t-shirt ads! Not me! I am an innocent bystander. I was entirely unaware of Hasselhoff's cult of - I don't know what to call, it precisely, but "ego" seems more appropriate than "personality" - until recently, when sdwolfpup showed me two music videos (one in which Hasselhoff attempts to win the Worst Blue Screening award while holding a plastic fish in his mouth and dancing out of rhythm, and one in which he is wearing a "Don't Hassel the Hoff" t-shirt, which I now realize was fearsome marketing in action). I have not been the same since, although my doctors hold out some small chance of a full recovery for me. My point is: INNOCENT. Also, fragile and not to be randomly subjected to Hasselhoff-related ads.

Did I mock her? No. Well, in my head a lot, but she doesn't yet have cosmic powers and telepathy.

(wait. does she?)

Then. *Then* came my gmail. My poor, poor gmail, that never hurt anyone.

There was an email.

From her.

Mentioning Hasselhoff.

My sidebar now.

MY GMAIL IS UNCLEAN. UNCLEAN. IT WILL NEVER BE AS INNOCENT AS IT ONCE WAS. This reminds me of the day svmadelyn blind linked me to a youtube vid that ended up a Hasselhoff music video. I still have traumatic flashbacks.

Okay, pop quiz to satisfy curiosity--open up your gmail, click on a random email, and paste your sidebar ads here. I do not want to be alone.

Mine's... weird, as it was *technically* an SGA story with SG1 characters figuring in prominantly. But. I don't know that anyone can really hold a candle to yours.

Huh. Real estate?

You know, I wonder if there are some that are standard and just thrown in there randomly.

*tilts head at ads* Innnnterrrresting.

This was from spammed SGA story bits, which may explain the Marines stuff, but... I'm failing to see how any of Lorne's marines would take the manpurses well.

Mine was from a forward from my friend Adrienne about Mitt Romney- I got this:

I tried another one and got this:

Also I always get news ads. The only product ads I ever get are for golf balls. Which makes NO SENSE. I hate golf with an unholy passion.

Yes. Concerts on boats. That would be interesting. *thoughtful* Maybe they all offer that as an option?

The coffee thing must be a standard, like real estate or something. Also? I don't think I've *ever* seen that ad and I? Love coffee.

...All from an email thread with miscellanny containing snippets of her new McShep fic complete with phone sex.

So confusing.

Maybe it was the heavy breathing?

*bites lip* One day, someoen has to analyze why certain ads come up for certain things.

I am forever going to mentally link McShep phone sex fic to voice instruction now. Actually, there's a fairly disturbing idea for a fic in that.

About these links

. . . Most of mine revolve around Japan or writing these days. But sometimes you get sheer "wtf" ads like "Overweight Children" because my best friend mentions McDonald's and the children allowed to roam free and induce rage in her as she's using their wireless internets. Googleads amuses me.
