AAaaaargghhh - the shame!

So a couple of days ago, I had a ranty whingey blog about Energy efficient lightbulbs. This gave me great pleasure, and was of very little interest to anybody else except for one person. For those of you who weren't so bored that they died half way through reading said rant, you will remember that I mentioned the lighting in a friend's house; in fact I whinged about it. I complained that it was dark as night and that I wanted to run around swapping their commendable lightbulbs for real bulbs.

I thought no more of this until today when I had an e mail from said proud houseowner. We are both going to a swishing party tonight (think swap shop with nice clothes and shoes), and she is giving me a lift. In her e mail, she was panicking about which of her clothes she could bring herself to part with and right at the end she dropped her bomb shell. I shall quote her for you: "Why don't you bring some light bulbs- I'll swap you my long life ones!!!!!"

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Caught, red handed, red faced and with a stripey shirt and a bag of swag. She read the blog. She recognised her house. I shall be hated for ever more and expect to be traded in at tonight's swishing party for a pair of old green flash tennis shoes and a box of candles.

This is what is good about the Friends option on LJ. It means you can filter some posts so that only people on your Friends list can read them.

Aahh - the benefit of hindsight!

you are in good company. I have just done something similar and had to delete a whole, carefully crafted entry after a friend rang me going: 'AAAAAAGGGGGHHHHH' why did you write that? I didn't want to talk to anyone about that yet. Poo!

We will sit in the corner of shame together and the Loyal Hound can flagellate us with dead shrews and sticks.

If I was you I'd have written something much ruder about her.

Katyboo - I shall discuss terms with the Loyal Hound and see if he has some shrews and sticks to spare....

Bob - Hmm, you sound suspiciously like somebody who has a house full of dodgy lightbulbs..... You can't trick me into saying anything more on the subject. Well, not today anyway!

bummer. Amazing that she could read the blog in such a dimly lit house though
