Justine: The Original, Historical Tinder

In homage to Valentine’s Day (and that oh-so-hard pick-up line), check out this cheeky video from Great Big Story…about the original Tinder. Perhaps you’ll write this (or some variation thereof) into your next historical (or even contemporary) romance!

  1. Love the story and the video, Justine! I just recently ran across a card something like this: On it was only a man’s name and his “credentials,” which included “party organizer” and “rabble rouser,” among others. Really a fun conversation starter.

    • Now those are great credentials! I’m reading a book by Victoria Alexander right now (I think it’s called “The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress” or something like that) and the heroine, who is out to do all the things her great aunt never did, would likely enjoy meeting a man touting those specialties!

  2. Fun! There’s this very quirky little podcast called “Tea and Jeopardy” hosted by Emma Newman, and her guests always present a calling card that Emma describes for us. (The guests are writers, agents, illustrators of SFF.) Word Wrangler, or stuff like that. I’ve often wondered: what would I put on my calling card?

    LOL, haven’t figured it out yet. I rather like the directness of “Who the devil are you?” Shows a certain amount of interest in my new acquaintances.

    Chuck Wendig, on episode one, put “Lord Penmonkey” on his card. That’s very Chuck (-:. I need to find something that’s very Michaeline.


    • I will have to check that out. Lord Penmonkey sounds about right for Chuck. I don’t know what I’d put on my cards, either, but perhaps that bears consideration.
