The planet Zanussi


Something kind of weird happened in my washing machine tonight. I found a hair scrunchie in it - a bit like this one but it was black. These are the sorts of things worn by women wanting to keep their hair neat or by soap dodging guardian reading blokes who haven't seen the scissors in a while and are all destined to become neat haired accountants sooner or later anyway.

Anyhow, I put socks and darks in the machine before dinner tonight and then a scrunchie appeared 72 minutes later. Most odd. There have been precious few women in the house of late and I am as sure as double fuck there have been no soap dodging right on deviant blokes either. Maybe there is some long haired blog writing woman who is equally puzzled tonight at the appearance of a knee length sock in amongst her delicates and darks.

That's machines to and fro' the planet Zanussi for you; every once in a while there's a formation of a Mobius strip (Google it) and the exchange of random articles of laundry. Who'd have thought it here in BS5?

I'm sure I found a sock earlier!

Hello there! I'll do another sock wash next week at exactly the same time and maybe the other sock will leap through the ether into your machine - you'd have the pair then! Just going to have a gander at your blog before work!

Does Mr Ben live in your suburban part of the world? I bet he raises his hat graciously if he sees you in the mornings?

He currently resides under my stairs, and if I trip over that damn bowler hat again I'll send him back to number 29!

At least he has the English decency to remove his hat whilst he is in the house?41965

Just sifting through trying to find this post, I really need to get a life!

It's been nearly a year since you sent that sock over. Do you want it back yet? I could deliver it by hand, rather than wait for the formation of a Mobius strip. Not that I want my scrunchy back, it is happy on your bedside table ;)
