Told You They Were Watching Me

22 May
Spy vs Spy

I rescued this from my spam box. 

I think the government hid it there.

I added your blog to bookmarks. And i’ll read your articles more often! Before this, it would be possible for the government to arrest you just based on whatever you were saying, if they didn’t like it.You got fantastic nice ideas there. I made a research on the topic and got most peoples will agree with your blog.

I know it’s not spam because of the truth of the last line.  This guy must have superpowers, to be able to keep me from jail just by bookmarking my blog.  Wonder if he works for Twitter?*

*A little super-injunction private joke between me and 64,999,999 other UK citizens.



I’ve started mining Facebook.

Wonder if they’ll take a bag of old clothes for him?
I thought I’d share some email subject lines as well.
From the Arts Council:
Arts Jobs – Escalator Dance Producers
Arts Jobs – Musical Basketball Players Required
I’m thinking of changing my blog name to Whistling Housewife.  I can’t whistle but that’s okay, I’m as suited to this job as I am to those two.

    Your blogosphere gets weirder and weirder. If I were you, I’d keep away from those facebook and twitter places – they can waste an awful lot of time.

      I only FB once or twice a week, and rarely Twitter (I was on it yesterday because I finally succumbed to curiosity about a certain footballer. I was shocked. Shocked, I tell you). I use them to spread the Tilly Bud word and generate more readers.

    I’ll start baking a cake with a file right now!!!


    • Tilly Bud May 22, 2011 at 10:13 #

      The cake I will definitely need; the file, not so much. 🙂

    Those spammers make me crazy.


    • Tilly Bud May 22, 2011 at 12:56 #

      Don’t take it personally – the more you get, the more successful your blog. I hope.

    Maybe a cake with Maltesers hidden in it?


    • Tilly Bud May 22, 2011 at 12:54 #

      You invent that and I’ll marry you.

        I’m not as nice as the Hub… 😉


        • Tilly Bud May 23, 2011 at 07:11 #

          The Hub’s not as nice as the Hub; I big him up.

    Spammers -You think they could be a little more original
    LOL 🙂
    Jury is out on Twitter and Facebook

    Yes, well, the Arts Council lost the plot manymanymany years ago…

    You do got fantastic nice ideas, though, Tilly…

    I wonder if Spammers have a day job of writing prompts for WordPress? 😉

    People say the funniest things. Thanks for sharing.

    After sharing some of the high quality SPAM I’d been receiving on SLTW . . . it stopped. Dried up. Disappeared.

    Now . . . I receive SPAM in languages I don’t even recognize.


    • Tilly Bud May 22, 2011 at 16:44 #

      Well…I suppose that’s a good thing…

        I never liked it. Corned beef from Uruguay was better – until they started putting Typhoid (or something) in it. The good folk of Aberdeen were freaked out by it – so maybe Spam is more healthy. . .
        I’m going to walk around the garden for a bit.
        Two glasses of red with the yorkshires today.


      • vivinfrance May 22, 2011 at 17:45 #

        It was botulism, Harry. And now I’m off out for dinner and the odd glass of red myself.


  9. Tilly Bud May 22, 2011 at 18:59 #

    No wine, but Yorkshires with the roast chicken, and a possible side helping of E.coli.

    Since you alerted me to this I have been looking at my ‘Top Searches’ on the dashboard. I can’t explain the tesco suit £15…..

    ‘Top Searches

    charity, origin of phrase ner cast a clout till may is out, blandford flies life cycle, tesco suit £15, daphne odora’

    there are governments who arrest (and kmill) for things they don’t understand but take to be an affront to themselves.

    democracy – one man one vote, once is a reality in Africa and elsewhere

    You are funny Tilly… More like the case of the Spammer gone wild! 🙂


    • Tilly Bud May 23, 2011 at 08:39 #

      Wild spam…it sounds like Day of the Disgusting Meat Triffids 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
