I shall call this blog entry:

"The Power of a Picture" AKA "Male B.S. in Action"

So I am part of a travelling network, and on this network we have profiles, and on these profiles we include information that will allow people to contact us--in this case msn, aim messenger screen names, etc.

Anyway, I'm used to random guys IMming me and saying, "hello...can you send me your picture?"

Which pisses me off on many levels:

1) I have a picture on the stupid site.
2) Who are they?

Okay, well today, I got another msn message, except this person had already seen my picture, and well, apparently my msn photo sent them over the edge--I mean, like, the mental edge.

Exhibit A:

African weirdo (from Tanzania): hello!
Me: hey!

On this guy's profile he has joined a group for Women Travellers...not for the same reasons women joined, obviously...crreeeepy.

So, anyway, as you can probably tell, he also called me, twice.

First call on my cell:

Him: Hello my queen heart...you really are my love.
Me: Uhh...Hi.
Him: I'm going to go buy another card, credit to call you...I'll call you back in 20 minutes my queen, queen of my heart. Heart queen...love, queen of my heart...
Me: Okay, bye.
Him: Twenty minutes queen! I crazy for you.
Me: *Click*

Second call:

Him: Helloooo, my love in my life...!
Me: Uh..hello...isn't it expe...
Him: You know this day is very good...I really enjoy it, I'm looove you...
Me: Um....'kay, but you don't even know me...
Him: I will call you more...you will know me...and tomorrow? You will be online around same time?
Me: Ummm...well...I'm leaving the country, for the UK tomorrow so I'll probably be on a flight and not really available...[ed. note: This is true! Even though it sounds like one of those lies...]
Him: Well then I'll send you the magic package and my photo...you send me too? Your photo?

[The dreaded photo question...]

Me: Okiedoke! (<--yeah right) Well I'm just about to head out...
Him: Okay...I love you...I never known a woman like you...
Me: You don't know me!
Him: But I am talking to you now...
Me: Well, I really gotta get going.
Him:...and I love you so much...be my queen, won't you be my queen?
Me: Okay, bye bye.
Him: ...love...Oh, bye. I love you!
Me: Bye.
Him: [I hear as I put the phone away from my ear to hang up.] I loooooove youuu...looooove youuu....

Maybe I should take my screen names down.
