O.I.N.K Update

March 9th, 2011 No Comments

A week ago, I changed my profile information on Facebook to identify me as a plus size model who lives in Japan. Facebook’s advertising bots haven’t caught up with me yet. I’m getting ads for low cost high heel shoes (which would appeal to the me in Japan) and real estate opportunities and home decorating services in Wyoming. This means that somewhere in the massive Facebook computer database, I’m still comprehended as my previous identity: a gay cowboy who lives in Wyoming. I think the only intelligent ad directed at me in this current bunch is for moving services. Placing that in the narrative, this gay cowboy had decided to change his life in a big way and is moving to Japan. But what will he pack for his new life? Maybe he should buy a whole new wardrobe for his new persona. And, I think, plastic surgery is also something to consider.
