Nude Brits shop while drunk

I'm sure we all have moments when we read a piece of "research" and think - "That's just a statement of the bleeding obvious!" So it was when I read about BLOTO on The Register. I work online much of the time and I've certainly been "working" while in a state of undress and sometmes while with drink too - who hasn't? And the idea that we might buy things online that we otherwise wouldn't seems a bit silly - I really needed that three-legged dining table and the painting of a Spanish Lady might still be wrapped up but I'm sure I'll find somewhere suitable to hang it - okay the signature isn't Van Gogh as I was led to believe but I know it'll retain its value!

9 careful considerations:

with six per cent of Britons claiming they know someone who has shopped online in a state of undress

Does that mean that at least 6 per cent of Britons shop in a state of undress or do they all know the same person? Seems a bit meaningless to me. Perhaps one of us should do your own survey and sell the results to the retailers.

Well, you two both know me (LOL)!

I think we all want to see proof of this undressness state of yours.

I'm not asking for myself of course, but for all your fans. ;)

I just realised something quite shocking. Apart from T171 I, don't think I have ever signed up for an OU course whilst completely sober.

Oh Angie I think you must have been drinking again! :-)

Kat - dare we ask what you were wearing?

I am always dressed by the evening but not necessarily during the day. I don't get dressed to use the computer, but I hate it when someone comes to the door. Sometimes I put my coat on and say 'Er sorry I was just on my way out.' A policeman called round the other day and I sat chatting with him in the livingroom with my raincoat on. Bet he thought I was a real loony, especially since it wasn't raining either indoors or out. :-) Embarrassing or what!

Well I'm glad I'm not the only one. There I was thinking I was the only slob...

Nogbad said...

So it's all round to Kat's during the day??? ;-)

Anna - do you honestly think that everyone posting on this blog let alone on the whole web does so while sober, straight and dressed??? I can assure you that this isn't the case :-)

I read about this today and laughed out loud.... then immediately thought of you and Kat. LOL

Turns out, I'm the sole idiot who hasn't done those things, as I admitted on Kat's poll.

I know, you already told me I need a life. I agree. Apparently, I even need more of one in my own home!! lol
