I was fooled twice. And twice by EJM!

First, she pointed out on facebook an article about the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/apr/01/guardian-twitter-media-technology

Then she pointed out on her food blog that she's on a new energy-conservation diet: http://etherwork.net/blog/?p=633

I don't think it's my advancing age that has led to my having been taken in not once but twice. My family always used to say they wrote a book about people like me:
Spoiler (highlight to read):
Gullibles Travels.


edit: changed the link to point to the Guardian article rather than my facebook entry with the iframe window of the Guardian article. This way people can still see the article without having to log in to facebook (I'm beginning to loathe facebook!) -ejm

I wasn't fooled this year but I did fool a few people.
btw did you know that the word "gullible" isn't even in the dictionary?

Heh heh, nice try, David. (very good - I was just about to reach for the Little Oxford Dictionary on the shelf beside me but caught myself in time skip)
