I’m in a reflective mood today. One of my favourite bloggers has had a nasty experience – she has just been fired for what she has written on her site about her job. Now, from regular reading, I can’t really see what her employers are making a fuss about – she has hardly written about work, and what she has written in very general and names no one. But none the less, she is fired.

So if anyone has a keen eye, they might realise that a few things don’t make sense on my site now – some stories are missing bits and my 100th Blog Posting is now actually my 94th. She’s got all her readers worrying now…

But on a completely different note, I went to the Wild Wild West party on Saturday night. My friends and I did some sort of costume, going for the saloon girl look, wearing what I thought were very short skirts etc.

Well, once again, I have proved I am getting old. Our skirts were among the longest in the place! And no one had told me that ‘batty-rider’ shorts were back in fashion!

We had a dilemna when we arrived – we were parking and noticed a group of girls walking in front of us. And we noticed something very odd – you could see the string hanging down from the tampax that one of the girls was wearing – her skirt was that short. So what do you do? On the one hand, it would be embarassing to tell her, but on the other, I’d want to know if it was me before I went into the party. So we went for the other option – we told one of her friends and got her to deal with it. I don’t think that even when I was 18 I’d have worn a skirt that lenght!

    Oh No, that’s terrible about the blogger. Did she have her pic up? That’s one reason I haven’t put up a pic, wanted to have more freedom to post. And even if she had her pic up and didn’t post anything derogatory, revealed any secrets…., I wonder. Maybe she should get a lawyer if she thinks they don’t really have a case.

    That was funny about the skirts. Oh yes KG you’re getting old 🙂

    Tampon strings showing???

    Now we know that a lady like KG would not be caught in any such garb!

    Hmmm… well, I think there must be more than has been said to the case of Petit Anglaise… if not, she will probably be successful in her suit.. I believe she is sueing them, isn’t she…
    Imagine, if what she said is true, the bastards said she compromised her business simply by posting her picture on her site. Who has more dibs on your likeness, you or the company you work for? Dem mad or wha? Gunshot fi employers like that! Bun them out!!!

    That’s sad about the job thing. I’ve done my best to not talk too much about work so hopefully I’m safe.

    Now, to have a tampon string showing, does this mean she didn’t have on even a thong? We all know what she went to the party for now don’t we????

    I try not ot be too descriptive about work… but there are so many funny stories from my office that I’d love to share!!

    Re tampon string – I’m sure that there are lots of generalised names for girls who dress like that!!

    Hell CD, just what was she (string gyal) going for, then? Hell no. Not that?

    Yes, everybody’s talking about Petite Anglaise getting dooced.

    I think I said this on Gela’s blog, if I were to blog about work, I’d change names, don’t post my pic, and be as ANONYMOUS as possible. The work folks can only then guess and wonder but have no proof.

    Tampax string showing? It wasn’t a fashion statement? You know how anything goes these days. Ooops, does this mean she was wearing no undies?

    Hey, that was a good strategy, to tell her pals.
