How To Find A Millionaire (Or Billionaire)
Wendy Tanaka 02.06.08, 6:00 PM ET

Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin are gone. So is Oracle Chief Executive Larry Ellison.

They're all no longer billionaire bachelors.

But don't fear. If a high-net-worth mate is your ideal, a plethora of dating sites offer an inventory of men who say they earn at least six figures annually. You can troll sites such as MillionaireMatch.com, Sugardaddie.com, DateAMillionaire.com or the humorous Marry-An-Ugly-Millionaire-Online-Dating-Agency.com to find deep pockets. (Men seeking sugar mamas on these sites typically have fewer choices because profiles of wealthy men tend to outnumber profiles of wealthy women.)
In Pictures: Where The Millionaires Date Online

Sure, these find-a-rich-guy sites might sound dubious, but they insist they provide a valuable service to wealthy people who are too busy running businesses to hang out at bars, clubs and other social venues. "It's a matter of convenience," says Steven Pasternack, chief executive of Miami-based Sugardaddie.com. "These guys work a lot of hours. It's very convenient to sit in your office and look through a catalogue of women" on your computer. Lucky them.

It's also cheaper than traditional matchmakers. For instance, both Sugardaddie and MillionaireMatch charge members about $20 a month, while high-end matchmakers charge clients thousands of dollars.

Whilst I agree, that meeting an affluent man is good, I am not quite keen to go to a website where the person's affluence is the main selling point for an interested person to consider. Otherwise, do we not fall under the 'gold diggers' category' by wanting to see only those whose net worth is over a million. Am I being naive in this?

Ladies, I present Mr James Marsden.


And another one from his days as a Versace model.



Sigh, must be the cheekbones.

Merry Festive season everyone!

Nicked from [personal profile] nimnod

(1) List 5 celebrities you'd shag at the drop of a hat.
(2) Put all of them IN ORDER of your lust for them. [I am not using that]
(3) Say which movie/show/thing it was that hooked you
(4) Supply photos for said people.
(5) Tag five people

I don't tag anyone but please, feel free.
All pictures are behind an LJ cut.

1) Michael Shanks, especially since I saw him all shaggy-haired and bubbly in the first episodes of Stargate-SG1 as Doctor Daniel Jackson.


2) Ryan Rynolds, ever since I saw him in Blade Trinity.


3) Sean Maher, he is just so beautiful in Firefly.


4) Richard Dean Anderson cause he's Jack O'Neill, leader of Stargate SG-1 team, a sarcastic, loyal and passionate son of a gun.


5) This list is hard, I mean really so many to choose from, but finishing the list is Gerard Butler. I mean this man can ride, wield a sword and look good no matter the hairstyle. I mean he was in "Beuwulf", "Timeline", "300", etc


And because I like to be different, I'll add one more. Really, Jensen is well...Jensen. A sarcastic hot male whether he is a genetically engineered soldier in "Dark Angel" or a demon hunter in "Supernatural".



Sigh, now I actually have to do something productive.

Okay, it is a well known fact I am single at work. Not because I advertise it, but like in the case of an office full of guys, any new female's boyfriend status information spreads like fire in an office of men. Seriously, men can be bigger gossips then women. Anyhow, I never had a problem with it since I do not encourage flirting and try to be friendly to everyone.

Unfortunately, there always has to be some creep who obviously thinks that by starting a conversation and then insult South Africa, insult my colleagues and I, jokingly threaten us and be an ass, whilst accusing us of being racist. All this, because a few years back he worked in Newcastle with some idiots who were also from South Africa and they all went out and got drunk and lay with prostitutes.

This apparently is his idea of hitting on a woman. I mean, come on, just because I do not get offended at profanity and can trade insults and witty banter, does not make me the perfect female for some creep with bad social skills.

Seriously, I know I am keen to meet single guys and all that, but does my forehead flashed the words of: "Flirt with me" to creeps with bad social skills and beer paunches?

On the positive side - 8 more days to go.

WARNING: FRIVOLOUS POST

As some of you may have noticed, I tend to make a frivolous post about once a week.  I always claim that it is to expand my drooling horizons, but really, it is just an excuse to perv.

Since it is my birthday today (thank to all of you for your kind wishes), I feel I can ask the wish fairly to bring me this man for a day as se...assistant for the day. It is not much to ask and I am being humble (I realise Nathan Fillon is not availible).  So can I PLEASE have Gerard Butler for the day to do with as I wish? PRETTY PLEASE?

Dear Wish fairy,

Can you please bring me this man for a day? I'll bring him back, I rpomise.
Here is his picture so tyou can identify him more easily:



The rest of identifying pictures are hidden behind the cut:

Regards and thank you,

Windrider

I had been very lax lately, using the various memes as an excuse to say that I have posted to my journal recently. Truth is, I'm still exhausted after the ICON convention and things have been running hectic at work. However, I do feel guilty for not posting (Shouldn't there be a blogging syndrome identified by yet another US MD somewhere?) So back to the most recent social thing - my time at ICON (I've been reading Something Positive comic lately so ignore (or at least find it funny) anything resembling an attempt to sound wordly and cynical with a hint of intellectual superiority).

ICON as a convention has been run by RPG and card gaming enthusiasts for the past 14 years to offer all the best in RPG, scifi/fantasy literature, card games, etc with events such as RPG competitive gaming and Magic: The Gathering tournaments with a room for watching bad anime. However, the community is fairly small although it has grown considerably it does not match their equivalents overseas (I'm still upset we could not kidnap Nathan Fillon or Sean Maher) but apparently we do have our own comedian here (I'm never at the ICON dinner but I've been assured by [personal profile] magependragon that he is very funny)

Still it is a great opportunity to meet up with people you had met in the previous years, rediscover why you are glad that you only meet some of them once a year and roleplay (after waiting for hours for the ordered lists) characters you would not think of playing. Admittedly, not everyone's idea of fun but it works for some of us. Here is an interesting thing though: this is when you realise that roleplaying, no matter how much fun it is does require you to spend energy and playing most of the  modules offered. Result, a lightheaded feeling that is only fading almost a week later and a puzzled feeling wondering why one bought so much roleplaying dice...

On the plus side I managed to justify buying the "Firefly" boxset and the two-disc version of the movie "Serenity."  I also think I managed to drive everyone to rolling up their eyes everytime I mention Firefly but I'll calm down, I promise (once I've rewatch the movie the fifth time).

A side note here, I realise that an inevitable question will arise of why, having been at an annual convention that caters to my oh-so-geeky interests that boasts a 70% male population I have yet to meet someone who might find me a bit attractive? Well, there are attractive men at the convention - unfortunately they are all involved/married/engaged. It looks like some women have caught on to the "geek husband is the best" idea way before yours truly even picked up her first comic. The guy I did know to be single and possesing beautiful blue eyes was seen to have his hand loviningly fondled by a long-haired, eyeliner proficicient Goth man. Then some people look at me funny when I tell them that I do go to ICON just for roleplaying. Oh well, enough whining about my love-life or lack thereof - if I can still find some humour in it and amuse some of you who are still not bored reading this post this gotta count for something. Besides, don't they say unlucky in love - lucky in cards? I think I should give thought to the idea of having my birthday party at Montecasino.

It was great meeting [profile] herne_kzn on Tuesday, his renditions of the undead were certainly enjoyed. On the plus side we finally levelled (roleplayer speak for getting more power) so  [profile] [profile] herne_kzn is welcome to have accomodation in JHB everytime we feel the need to convince our wonderful and wise DM (yes, I'm buttering up [personal profile] claidheamhmor) that we need more power, he seemed to be out lucky charm:)

Back to the grindstone, I have a team quiz competition on Windows 2003 to prepare for and a walking marathon on the weekend, see the info here.
