My Soulmate's Dead? That Figures.

Here's a fun little time-waster I found online - The Dead Celebrity Soulmate Search. It's kind of like a Dating Game for necrophiliacs. Just enter some info about who you are and the kind of guy or gal you're looking for, and the generator will give you three bachelors or bachelorettes to choose from. My choices were:

Edgar Allen Poe - I love his work, but he's a bit too weird for me. When asked what he found sexy, his reply was, "madness." Odd. Plus, he has a mustache. Not a fan of the facial hair.

Rudolph Valentino - Well, he has an Irish Wolfhound, so that's a plus. Way too cheesy though.

Vincent Van Gogh - He's got the whole "starving artist" thing going for him, for sure. (Of course, if he came back to life today he wouldn't be starving anymore.) I wasn't sure I could deal with his moodiness, but his answer to the "what is sexy" question won me over - "The burning essence of living color all around us." Wow. Can't resist a guy who can talk like that! He has that crazy beard, but if he has no problem cutting off a piece of his ear, I'm sure I could talk him into shaving his face.

Obviously, I picked Vinnie Van. My pickup strategy was to send him an email complaining that no one understands my "vision." He loved that. However, my dating guide warned me that even though it's quite possible that my new soulmate and I could spend our days having sweet countryside picnics, we might very well spend our nights having heated bedroom fights, complete with flying glassware and china. Well, the guy's passionate. Can't fault him for that. And hey, I like to throw things too.

Have fun finding your own corpse bride or groom. Give the generator a whirl.

I think I got Agatha Chirstie, who is not even close to anything that I would want from a woman. They should've had "film" in the interest criteria.

I wound up with Ava Gardener. I was hoping to find a former pornstar or something.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
