This was my week.
In the Greatly Annoying Department, my personal Facebook account was cloned this week. My current Facebook friends were invited to friend me again. Many of them were aware of the scam going around so rather than re-friending me they informed me this was happening. One person who accepted the invitation was immediately instant-messaged (supposedly by me). The message told her to delete my original Facebook profile and use the new one because the original one was infected by a Trojan virus. She messaged me upon the receipt of the message so I knew what was going on. I changed my password and notified Facebook that someone was using my identity. Facebook deleted the cloned account relatively quickly. I have heard now about other people to whom this has happened. I have heard that the cloned account sends out messages asking for money. It was an annoying happening because who wants to deal with that?
We are saddened this week to hear about the lost of 150 lives from the airplane that crashed in the Alps. And shocked with the allegation that the co-pilot deliberately caused the plane to crash. Such a tragedy for the victims and their families.
We watched many basketball games and will watch more throughout this weekend. Wisconsin won two games over last weekend and made it to the Sweet 16. The Badgers and North Carolina played a very exciting game last night. Wisconsin won and will compete in the Elite Eight against Arizona on Saturday. This will be a repeat of last year’s Elite Eight match-up in which Wisconsin won in overtime. The games certainly won’t get easier for the Badgers. I am a Wisconsin alumni and thus follow the Badgers closely. But overall I am a men’s college basketball fan so I enjoy many other games as well. March Madness is followed closely by us at the Good Woman’s homestead. One of my blog followers has been telling me about how exciting women’s basketball is as well–and very different from men’s basketball–so I just may have to try to take in a woman’s game.
I found some time for leisure reading this week, continuing with the same book I had been reading. It has bogged down a bit but I am hoping it will pick up soon. I also did some cross stitching as that is something I can do while basketball is on the TV.
I continue to visit many blogs in the hope of increasing my followers. I will soon hit the 200 mark. I am truly appreciative of my followers and I continue to enjoy this blogging journey.
In the Tickle My Funny Bone Department, the place I work has a help desk that people contact for computer issues. When a ticket has been closed the customer gets an email asking them to evaluate the help they received. This week a response was received in which the employee was rated very highly, given a rating of 5 out of 5 in every category which include things like Professionalism, Promptness and other categories. Then the customer added a comment which was also very positive. But the comment section has a finite length, and this is what was actually posted:
I can’t say enough about C- – – – -. He’s so professional, accurate and always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. He always makes sure that the job at hand gets done correctly, even if it takes him longer than what he expected. He’s a true ass
And with that I will end my casual Friday post.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.
