I have seen this ad, and remember reading a news item somewhere that noted that it was a pic of Stacy (likely from her pre-WWE modeling days) that was on the ad. What I like is that the ad shows "actual members" of the service. I am just not quite buying that one.
I dunno... I'm going to have to lean towards no, but that pic is freakishly close. Either way, I bet that was provided by the same modeling services that pump shit out to hotornot.com so the amazingly sex-deprived can give them tens, while the spectacularly cynical give them ones simply BECAUSE they're models.
Geez, now I know I'm not crazy. That ad shows up often on Hotmail and the MSN front page, and every time I've seen it I've thought it was her.
"I do have a degree in electrical engineering... from almost 20 years ago. Punchcard systems were just becoming obsolete, we had rotary phones in the dorms, and a modem was still a gizmo the size of a shoebox into which you squooshed the phone receiver itself. In short, we lived like animals.
The instant obsolesence is why I became a writer. The rate of punctuation in a sentence doesn't double every 18 friggin' months, and you never have some 22-year-old looming over your shoulder, shaking his head, saying "dude... you're still using adverbs...?"
Definitely agree, although my "maturity" marker is that I'm getting more excited about the toothbrush, deodorant, contact solution, etc., in my stocking that mean I don't have to spend money on any of that stuff for awhile!
