Google Me

….because apparently so many other people do.

I swear every day I become more creeped out because of people and their use of the internet, more specifically their use of Google search.  I love Google search just as much as the next person, but do I have time to sit and Google other people, to find out about their comings & goings? Fuck no. Do I have time to Google people’s internet nom de plume’s just to see what their Google ranking is? Hell no. Do I have time to sit around and Google the government names of people/associates/coworkers or people who I wish would cease breathing? I’d rather watch paint dry.

What’s scary is that there are people who do the above things. What’s even scarier is that they have the time to sit and do it. You’d think they’d have better things to do with their time. Google search is a tool used to gain information, not to stalk people and their online/offline activity.

Crazy bitches.

Now with the advent of Google buzz, personal information and connections are even more accessible.  If I wanted someone to meet a friend of mine, chances are, I’d introduce them myself. Forget about “Big Brother” watching, it’s more like Big Brother and his whole damn family.

    LMAO, I wonder the same thing. People are just nosy and most times can't help wanting to know what others are doing. Me? I could care less what the other person is doing, when it doesn't effect me directly.

    I'm just going to assume certain people (waving @ the person I'm referring to) doesn't have anything better to do..what a crappy existence.

    See, not until recently did I know people even did that dumb sh*t. This woman called herself dropping salt on this dude because he apparently dumped her. She told me that she found out some things about him after they broke up. First, nothing pains me more than a person kicking a past lover. Anyway, toward the end of are little talk she told me not to worry because she was not going to Google me. Google me? Now look, I'm up for a little freaky deaky but I had never heard of googling somebody. So, I didn't want to sound lame but I had to get to the bottom of this Google mess. I asked her if and when she googled someone, what part of the body would she use? She laughed because she thought I was joking.

    In the end she told me that's how some people dig in the trash of others. WTF?! I mean, I got nothing to hide, my life is an open book but damn. I mean, the mess that I may be looking for in a woman wouldn't be found on Google. Are you kidding me, I want to know if she's a scank, or a ho or if her house is filty. I want to know if she's a lier, a cheat or a one night stand.

    I couldn't believe that woman. She had the nerve to tell me she wasn't going to Google me *lol*. I didn't get a chance to tell her she could Google me, but it would be distant love. 🙂

    LOL. You warned me a long time ago about “admirers”. I didn't feel like a “real” blogger until I got my first nasty anon comment. So childish and passive aggressive. If you're going to do that ish, at least humor me by hiding your IP address…
