A rare bout of blogger’s block has struck, with my husband away being the probable cause; O Bunn and I are having makeshift meals not worthy of blogging about. Last night the daft child requested cookie dough (unbaked!) for dessert. Things will likely change in the baking department soon: Whirlpool have advised that they will replace poor Wall-E with a new model. And so we have another case-book study of the power of social media; I made a bit of online noise and achieved in 8 days what I had been battling to get sorted in more than a year.
Which brings me to Side View’s weekend challenge … “THE ODD ONE OUT”
Shortly after creating the Facebook group to raise awareness of my stove troubles, I received a friend request from a ‘Belinda’ whom I didn’t know. I had a look at the woman’s page and saw that she had no friends at all, and that there was no activity whatsoever on her page. Mystified, I sent her a private message asking how she knew me. She replied that she didn’t know me, but had found me through a random search of common interests. I gave her the benefit of the doubt and accepted her friend request, but it continued to niggle and I still find it strange that I am the odd one, out of millions chosen. On closer investigation of ‘Belinda’s’ profile, I find that her email address directs to a ‘Wayne’. Am I paranoid to suspect that Belinda/Wayne is a Whirlpool mole, created to watch the public response on my Facebook group?
Doesn’t matter really, at least my loaves won’t look like this from now on.
