Duckface: Uses For A….

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 22, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

Having written a few words about selfies – yet again – a few days ago, I’m returning to another self-portrait theme which keeps on rearing its (ugly) head: the Duckface. This time, however, I’m not going to ruin your day with instances of excessive cosmetic surgery gone wrong or the horrors of bathroom and toilet […]

The Smallest Status Symbol

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 21, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

At first I found it disturbing, the fact that some men would approach me – mainly in college – and make certain offers. Perhaps it has something to do with my looks, I’m told that Asian women are especially attractive to many western men, or perhaps it was some form of desperation, an attempt to […]

Death Of The Selfie

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 20, 2014 in Internet |

It has been hailed as the end of the selfie: the Duke of York took a photograph of himself and guests during a function and posted it to Twitter, apparently a first for the English royal family. And, of course, there was an almost instant uptake on the photograph with many media sites snapping their […]

Neil Trotter: Waiting For The Millions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 19, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I thought most people would be aware of the dangers of the Internet, aware that nothing is what it seems, nothing is as good as it is portrayed, the streets are not lined with gold. Surely everyone knows that there is no such thing as a free lunch, that the world does not owe them […]

Attack Of The Bots

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2014 in Internet |

I’ve been wondering why the admin side of this web site has been a little slow of late, and why, now and then, a humanity check appears when I sign in. Now, thanks to an update on the BruteProtect site, I have the answer. BruteProtect is a WordPress plug-in I use to protect myself from […]

Do Not Pass Go, Do Not Collect

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 17, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I’m trying to get my head around a story I read today, something which makes me wonder whether there are really people out there who are so full of themselves, no self-centered and ego-controlled that they cannot see beyond their own image. Apparently there is an English woman called Sophie Pearl Dalzell who is a […]

Twitter: The Double Dog Dare

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 16, 2014 in Immoral Conversations, Internet |

If thirty people re-post this I will do something absolutely amazing or, better yet, amusing and silly. Has anyone not seen this or a similar line on Twitter or Facebook? If you haven’t then you’ve probably got a very stable, upright set of friends or followers. Although, sometimes, there are ‘if you’ messages for something […]

The Happy Meal Original

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 15, 2014 in Personal |

I’m surprised that no one else appears to have found this, and yet it is so obvious! Despite all the discussions on the Internet, no one has managed to trace back the origins of the (apparently much hated) new Happy Meals logo on McDonald’s food packaging. Well, I am here to help everyone along and […]

Go Fly A Kite

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 14, 2014 in Personal |

If it wasn’t so cloudy and dull this weekend, I might have been convinced that going out and flying a kite would have been the perfect pastime. There is, about twenty-five kilometers away from here, a small village called Clues (pronounced Clueys) where groups of people meet up regularly to enjoy the weather and let […]

So I Thought: Friday The 13th

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 13, 2014 in Internet |

There have to be a few good tales about things which happened today, especially since this is supposed to be a day of bad luck. That’s what I thought. Guess I was wrong. In fact, going through all the meaningless status updates on Twitter, I found next to nothing of interest. No one got run […]
