Okay, not really. But sort of.
I was bored yesterday - can you believe it? Bored doesn't happen often for me, but I was finished with my freelance work and had spent time on my usual message boards and even worked on my novel a bit. So I decided to google myself. I do that from time to time because how cool is it to see links to MY work that go on for four of five pages? (In case you're wondering, it's VERY cool!)
Anyhoo, after getting my little "me" fix (gotta work on that swollen head thing), I decide to google my maiden name, Lynda Vermeer.
Now, there are relatively few Vermeers at all (except maybe in the Netherlands), let alone one with my first name. But, lo and behold, besides a couple links to me, like from Classmates.com, a Linda Vermeer (with an "i") pops up on Google. So, of course I click on it to see just who this other "me" is. It turns out, she is a writer who has a book of poetry published through Lulu! How weird is that? (In case you're wondering, it's VERY weird!)
I'll probably try and contact her just for kicks. I'm thinking we'll get along famously because, after all, I've always gotten along very well with myself.
Now, if she's engaged to or married to someone named Rob or who's last name is Schab, or if her middle name is Lee (like mine)...how creepy would THAT be? (In case you're wondering, it would be VERY creepy. But kinda cool, too.)
So have you googled yourself lately? You just never know what (or who) you'll find!
