Scarves on the Incredible Journey

I've been on flickr's wardrobe remix for about three months. It's not only been this Incredible Journey Around My Wardrobe, but an Incredible Armchair Journey around the Globe, viewing & commenting on other people's daily outfits from all over the world (well, mainly the US) & being commented on  myself.
My friends & family have enjoyed it too, although one over-burdened work colleague, after briefly viewing my flickr site said that it was obvious that I didn't have enough to do. Yeah, it's really a shame that I'm wasting my time on this when I could be catching up with the latest episode of 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!'
Like all Incredible Journeys, there's been a few small obstacles on the way. You'll notice my collection of scarf photos above. I love wearing scarves & have been collecting them on & off for over 30 years. It's a great way to change the look & mood of an outfit, even if you end up looking like a flight attendant at times. Little did I realise that of course, scarves are fetish items! For a while I was getting lots of comments from other flickr members who always seemed on hand to comment the minute I posted a scarf on WR: "I love love love the way you've tied your scarf!" or "Great tying!" they'd trill. When the penny finally dropped that I was just being sleazed on I was deflated. To paraphrase Sally Field's famously needy Oscar Acceptance speech - they didn't "really love me after all!"
 But then I discovered the "BLOCK" button & suddenly everything was sunshine & roses. If only Real Life was like that. For the moment, the sleaze artists have gone away, or at least they've cleverly disguised themselves.
