Well, fine, for a while last night, I thought tonight’s blogging would be easy. Memories of the previous time that England were in a World Cup Final, 52 years ago, and all that. They were even winning when I got home, but things went downhill from there, so instead you get this…! Yes, resisting being rude about that Orange faced Russian guy visiting here from the US, trying to be good!
So instead, lacking any great subject matter, lets rely on that good old back up idea, a look at one of this week’s stories. This one, in fact
Now, as my regular followers know, my views on Smart Phones, Apps, and the like, is pretty much that I dont know, and I dont care about them. But still, this amused me. You can guess I dont know a lot (or less) about Tinder, but I gather its some sort of dating thing, where you do one thing with the picture if interested in someone, and do the opposite if not? Then if they feel the same way about you…? One things for sure, even if I was on it, the chances of anyone being interested in me, matches my chances of flying to Alpha Centauri in an alien spacecraft, at light speed! 😛
So fine, a story where if you fancy someone on this Tinder thing, that they have to reciprocate, has to amuse me. No, I dont think I could be that cruel to anyone, but apart from that… Well, if I could get Rotwang to give me the Maria makeover, then maybe, but otherwise…
Let me say that beyond this fictional, magical version of Tinder, I have no idea if it works, or not? I cant believe it does for anyone, but maybe for some…? Besides which, I suspect most of the people I’d be attracted to, of a suitable age for me, probably arent on Tinder either! So fine, if thats what smart phones are like (and fine, I know, in real life, they’re not), another reason for me not to bother to get one!
So, if any wealthy millionaire wants to fall in love with me (ha ha), lets just do it the old fashioned way, OK? 😉 If he then wants to turn me into an obedient, Stepford type wife, no complaints from me!
Alright, video time. This guy is probably remembered by most for one song, classically used as a ‘Rick Roll’ on You Tube. No, its not that song, though it could have been apt. Its his version of the Nat King Cole classic, and its very good, live. Now, if he wants to fancy me on Tinder, either version, I’d have no complaints!
