I thought I was living in Crazy Town last week. Wherever that is. It was a busy, weird, kind of expect the unexpected week.
The craziest highlight of the week was that a post I wrote a month ago entitled Doppelganger was Freshly Pressed by WordPress and got to Number One on their front page. I had thousands and thousands of hits on it and hundreds of comments.
For those of you who use WordPress and want to know what Freshly Pressed is all about, here is some info.
If you haven’t read the comments people left, you should. Some of them are hilarious but what is most interesting is the number of people who have had doppelganger-like experiences. It was quite staggering.
So there I was trying to respond to all the comments and visit the blogs of everyone who had stopped over (I am still doing that but will get over to see you all soon) and I got this fantastic comment from Harriet in New Zealand who thinks she might just be my doppelganger.
I have never posted on someone’s blog, but had to on this one – I might be your doppelganger Selma! If you are brave enough, can I send you a pic?

How wild is that?
I write a post about doppelgangers and my own doppelganger reads it and leaves a comment *cue the music from The Twilight Zone*
Harriet has a really cool blog and is obviously a great sport because she has sent me a photo of herself which she doesn’t mind me posting here.
Are we doppelgangers?
You be the judge.
Thank you, Harriet. It was so cool to meet you.
And thank you to everyone who visited. It was a crazy week, but a fun one.
