Brilliant bugging – so far!

Just a quick update on the evening of B-Day. Reports of successful Bugging are coming in thick and fast – including this lively blog account and many many overhearings, sent on Facebook and Twitter. It’s brilliant – at last we have a real sense that everyone has been out there: leaning on lampposts in Lampeter, lurking in the lanes of Lancaster, shuffling in the streets of Sheffield… etc.

For our blog from this morning, which may have passed you by (including tips on how to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear) look here. Our favourite Buggings from today include:

“‘I never buy red shoes.”

“I went in there once to see if I could borrow an old man.”

“and then she said, ‘You do know I’m leaving, don’t you?'”

“You can’t post something like that. What would the postman say?”

We’ve also had some lovely photos of likely Bugging locations from Janet Jenkins… like this one….

The hills are alive, with the sound of private conversations.....

If you didn’t hear anything – or you forgot – or you come to us late (where were you?) then you can still take part – go and eavesdrop tomorrow, or the day after, but get your writing to us by August 15th. And if you are super-speedy and have already finished a piece – look at Submissions for how to submit. Obviously.

We are having a ball – how exciting to hear all your reports from the frontline. Keep them coming – as comments here, as Facebook or Twitter updates, and keep your ear to the ground till bedtime!

  1. Heard yesterday 1.7.2010 – snatch of a mobile phone conversation on bus:

    “He told me that if Sam died, he’d take me back to South Africa because he’s always loved me!”

    Rather intriguing and most frustrating as the person making the call, got off at the next stop.
