Paydirt

Every now and then I get the hankering to track down someone I was friends with in college just to see what google can turn up. To that end, I recently made my best discovery ever when I turned up this page. Apparently, the husband of a dear college friend took the time to write a book and get it published by Lulu, a publish-on-demand company. I ordered the paperback yesterday so I am eagerly waiting its arrival. Although my book queue is pretty deep and this book isn't a genre I would usually read, I hope to delve into it soon.

This discovery also allowed me to do one of my favorite hobbies, which is giving free publicity to my friends' various ventures.

You better click all those links! Don't you want to know what my friends are up to? C'mon!

Cool. I don't feel like such a loser (or stalker) for doing that now that I know you do it too. Most times I come up empty, but sometimes, I score the jackpot. Band websites, gay personals, to boring job pages. Always an adventure when playing Googlorama.

Yeha, I was hesitant to call this "cyberstalking" even though that word is in wikipedia. I think I'll use Googlorama from now on.
