We had eaten lunch and my monster wanted to do some quiet reading. I didn’t have anything to do and sat at my desk staring at my computer. Sure, I could fold laundry, or wash the dishes. I just didn’t feel like that though. I know! I can look up my name on Google.
Have you ever done this? It really is fascinating to see where your name is posted out in cyber space. I found many posts for homeschooling groups and places I had posted books for sale. Then, I found some other interesting things.
1) I found that there is a lady (seems like she is about 8 yrs. younger than me) that is a really fast runner. She also lives in Texas and has run in the Boston Marathon. The funny part is that if someone were to look up my name on Google, they would see some of her smokin’ race times out there. Sadly, most of those aren’t “my” times. Wish they were though.
2) I found that there is a Linux nerd that shares my name. He is all over the Internet giving advice to other computer people. Pretty cool.
3) There is a lady out there that is a nurse with my name.
4) There is a computer nerd chat board that had my name on it. The person that posted said my maiden name and then talked about me. I have NO IDEA who that person is. If you are reading this and posted about me, let me know. You creeped me out! LOL
It is funny how we think that we are unique on so many levels. Granted, we are all different, but someone out there might have the same name. Looking up my name was an interesting way to spend 10 minutes on Google.
