Look at My Face! Am I Bovvered?

I keep getting these messages on websites such as Goodreads saying I've been "unfriended by 3 people". Fancy that!!!!

Well I don't have a Facebook account now, I deactivated it so why should I care? Well Facebook must think I do or are trying to raise my curiosity as to who it is that's "unfriended me".

Well there's no such verb as "unfriend". Well that's what I thought but when I looked it up Facebook has created a whole new vocabulary their product. "unfriend" is not just a verb it's a noun too.  


"Unfriends are people who were previously your friend but have either deactivated their account or have removed you from their friendlist".
So there! It's official. There's even an Unfriend Finder website should you be desperate to find out who is unfriending you & why. What's worse there's an Unfriendable website. Good grief there's a whole "unfriend" industry out there.

What's really naffing me off is that Google ads too keep popping up telling me I've been "unfriended". What I want to do is use the immortal words of Lauren aka Catherine Tate and say "Look at my face! Am I bovvered"?

Roy Orbison

When I was a teenager I had lots of lovely LPs with their beautiful covers and one of my favourite singers was Roy Orbison. I was luck...
