Bit of a Sophie Calle experience



Or rather it is the reverse of a Sophie Calle experience. I am getting e-mail for someone with my name, but, judging by the mail's content, a whole different life from mine.

She is younger, with a new baby, has just bought a house and has joined a mother and baby group. I don't know where the error is in her e-mail address, and I'm not keen to reply to any of the messages I'm getting, so the stuff just keeps on coming. It is all a bit weird.

the perfect gift


And just to expand on the Calle element why not tell me about your own strangest virtual identity crisis?

Yikes. This is a bit Twilight Zone. I hope you don't start hearing crying in the night.

Lovely lines.

I have a permanent identity crisis, so won't bore you.

Interesting and I hope it all gets solved ASAP.

When I moved to Dunbar I discovered there is a Will Collin living here. We sometimes get confused by local reporters. And I discovered another Colin Will last year. He's an artist living in Paris, and we're probably related through our Buchan ancestry.

There is a Juliet Wilson who is a humanist celebrant in Edinburgh. One day I found an article by her in the Guardian where she was described as a poet, performer and reviewer. Bit weird that I though so i emailed here to swap poetry, but it turned out that the Guardian nad Googled her and found me and used my biog for her. (Does this mean i'm famous then?)

Slightly off topic but a bit weird: I'm getting comments with today's date that must have been sent days ago and I just find them lurking in Dashboard and I check every day.
It worries me that it looks as if I have deleted them or ignored them.
