Privacy is the new black....

Right, now that just puts the tin hat on it.... I've just worked out that someone is using pictures from my blog on their online dating profile. Good grief. Why?
In any case, I have had enough of pondering why... why this, why that and why me? I am a very ordinary person... so ordinary that I am going private... in ten minutes time my blogs will be private.


Update: 21st November 2012

Now bored with privacy being the new black. Have now decided that reading books and eating yoghurt is more likely to be the new black... At least until the 5th December when for one hour, from 3am, black becomes the new black... thereafter, wearing sparkly stilletos teamed with a Gabardine mac in Sainsbury's every Thursday afternoon becomes the new black for the next five years.

I hope this helps.

  1. I feel like I've been invited to a private club and crossed the velvet rope.

    Is there an open bar?

    Will there be Champagne?

  3. It does have a slinky exclusive feel to it doesn't it?
    I think there should be champagne... and a knee deep shag pile carpet.

    1. That may be a bit tricky with his account.

      Herr Mago sent me a note earlier today saying he would be offline for a few days. So if you don't hear from him right away, hang on a bit.

    2. I wonder if he has a Gmail a/c... it seems to like Gmail... which is a surprise!

  8. What the hell. This internet thingy was supposed to set us free. All it did was make some people crazy. Thanks for the key to the kingdom.

  9. Thank you, Scarlet. (steps over MJ testing the shag pile)
    Sorry you've had a nasty person.

    1. Dinah: Probably not so much nasty, but more a case of someone having a bonkers moment when I'm feeling particularly paranoid! Not a good mix.

  12. Hello darling

    Thanks for the invite. I'll try not to make too much mess on the carpet or drink all your gin...but please note, those aren't promises!

    The bloody cheek of some people eh?

    1. Good morning Ms Roses!! Don't worry about making a mess... the crevice attachment will sort it out.
      I have probably over reacted... like the storm in the US... a multitude of factors converged at the exact same moment turning me into a paranoid angst bunny.

    2. Yeah, but you've been burnt. And if you're happier in hiding, that's all that matters. You won't get rid of us that easily.

  13. Hello Miss Scarlet:
    For a horrible day or two we thought that we had been excluded or banned from your Private Club. We have been beyond devastated. However, with great joy we noticed that your personal invitation had popped in to our email box. Now we are beyond thrilled.

    We have to advise you that so much emotion can be dangerous to people of our advanced years....so we do hope that your future posts may pay attention to this and focus on small furry animals and home baking as all the other blogs we frequent do!!!!!!

    So pleased to be members....dancing happy dance!!!!

  14. I wasn't sure which of me had been invited :)

    I is here for the shagpile carpet and I have brought my Fungus the Bogeyman hot water bottle (full of gin) with me.

  25. You are a celebrity now.
    The Tabloids should knock at your door ... ah fame ...



    Sorry, I am off now.

  26. Forgive me for not having spotted this earlier, but while wearing sparkly stilletos teamed with a Gabardine mac doesn't exactly surprise me, doing it in Sainsbury's every Thursday afternoon sounds a bit, well, how can I put this...... downmarket. I mean, in Sainsbury's on the day people of a certain age collect their pensions.......?

  27. I have a feeling I've missed something here? :D I hope I'm still in time for the "champagne and shag" party? But I'll pass on the piles thanks.
