Just a few more oddities

Posted on November 26th, 2008 @ 00:57 in Uncategorized

I’ve sort of mentioned this on here before with Facebook (i.e. people in Lux knowing each other that you really wouldn’t expect). Like this:

Girl I used to go to high school with:
– knows girl I used to go to primary school with (this is not that surprising since they both lived in the same suburb at some point – tho high school girl moved there much later)
– knows my cousin – WTF?! (he’s like 6yrs younger, lived/lives somewhere completely different)

Random girl who’s the sister in law of one of the horse people:
– also knows girl I used to go to primary school with.

:)) This isn’t probably that extraordinary, I mean it is a small world, and an even smaller country, and I should stop getting hung up on Lux people all knowing each other.

Anyway. Re-reading that old entry I linked up there:

So now Realname has 28 friends and Clarissa has 26. Makes you think.

Well, now (roughly a year later):
Clarissa-on-Facebook has 42 friends.
Realname-on-Facebook has 93 friends.
This may have something to do with the fact that it’s easier to track down people by their real names than by some messageboard login. 😛 But also cuz online is more fractured and volatile? I’m pretty sure I’ve “met” more people online than I have in real life (but I also don’t care to know abot a lot of them. *lol*).

Oh and the weirdest thing!!! Quoting:

I went to bed really early last night (around 8ish) and had horrible nightmares yet again, about people being in my flat and me panicking. It was weird, dreaming I was in bed when I actually was in bed. Meh. I wish the nightmares would end.

Becaauuse…. last night I went to bed really early (8ish!), slept til midnight, was awake til 4.30am… and then had horrible nightmares about people being in my flat and me panicking!
Ok maybe it’s just confirmation bias but I thought it was worth mentioning anyway! 😀 Incidentally that entry was about a year ago (oh and hey, I still lived in the old flat then). And for the record, I don’t generally have too many nightmares these days.

Are you aware that facebookpeople are pretty obsessed with getting rid of fake and dupe accounts these days? And if they find dupes they will ban you completely and also delete your main account? Just in case you care and didn’t know. lol

Ah. No. I mean I knew they deleted dupes if they found them, but not that they were obsessed. I guess I’ll have to take the risk. 😐

I thought you didn’t read my Twitterfeed? :))
And yeah I’ve changed my mind about Macs. Well, I kinda liked working on them at the college place too, I just don’t like the whole Mac user scene. :)) But the Air is hella sexy =P~ and it will be an interesting new experience and a new toy to play with. 😀

lol @ facebook drama. Well let’s hope for the best. 😀 :-n
