One pretty pale blue ladies Bridgedale sock seeks solemate ....
Brilliantly inventive blogger Alan Burnett, a long-time blog friend of mine at 'News from Nowhere', has been pondering the plight of those odd socks that seem to accumulate wherever there are feet. He has now unveiled a digital innovation for helping to solve this worldwide and growing problem. He says:
"I have established a new organisation which will be known as NNOSE (News From Nowhere Orphan Sock Exchange) and which henceforth will be dedicated to reuniting orphaned socks, wherever they may be."
The idea is to post a picture of your lonely sock, in the hope that someone, somewhere in the world, will have its mate. (See this link). I think this could get off the ground in a big way! Not usually one of the first footers when it comes to a new idea, nevertheless I here advertise my own lonely little thing. Any matches out there?
Mind you, most of the people hot-footing it to this new link seem to have households of many feet (and mostly male). I am slightly worried... There's only me here, and I'm quite organised, not one for losing things. I have another pair of identical blue socks so I am wondering if, rather than having LOST a sock, I have in fact GAINED a sock... yes, I think they might be breeding!
