Well that was freakin weird. Cool, but weird.

I stayed a little late at work downloading and watching AMVs, and ended up getting to test out my alarm code. It works. I can stay really late or come in and work on weekends if necessary. Woohoo =P

On the way home i decided i should stop by the store to use the ATM and get some food. Actually got fairly healthy stuff this time, go me.

At the checkout counter i ended up in the line with the somewhat gothy girl who i've seen there several times before. She did the usual hi and how are you doing thing. I gave something like my usual akward "i don't really know how to talk to strangers" answers. Then she looked at me and asked if i was on MySpace. I had a complete mental disconect for a second or two before saying that yes, i was. She said she'd thought she'd seen me my picture on there. I told her i had a profile but that i don't check it very often because it crashes netscape so often, and she said she'd heard about that.

...and that is why I have no picture on okcupid (but I do have some for friendster and myspace and orkut and facebook). But most of those pictures you can't really tell it's me.

If you have your "usual" don't-know-how-to-talk-to-strangers answers, it means that you must have had practice perfecting those answers. Which means that you could/should practice "i know how to talk to strangers!" answers as well.

But it wasn't the picture on okcupid that gave me away, it was the one on myspace :)

And i don't think i really mind in this case if some makes the connection between my myspace profile and myself. The profile is a public attempt to let people get to know me a little without talking to me, and it seems to have done its job :)

Practicing "I know how to talk to strangers" answers would require knowing what those answers are, and being able to get them in my mind and out of my mouth while being talked to by a stranger.

Same thing. It was the last one I signed up for, so my profile on that is particularly lacking. The ones I signed up for earlier all have more information.
