Have you seen the commercials for the website mylife.com? Apparently, you can use it to find people and, more importantly, find out if anyone has been looking for you. In the commercial, an attractive woman logs on and her eyes go wide as she says, “Five people are searching for me? I wonder if one is an old boyfriend.” Hmm. They have internet in prison?
How desperate or paranoid do you have to be to log on to a website just to see if anyone has been searching for you through the very same website?
Well, I was bored.
Two hundred and sixty one people? (I’ll ignore that more are women than men.) I didn’t even know that I had ever met that many people. Everyone I owe money to already knows exactly where to find me. Anyone I went to high school with has already found me through Facebook. Who are these people? My maiden name is very common, so I assume most are probably strangers looking for someone else. But, what if some of them are legit? What if I made a lasting impression on some random person I met in passing and now they are trying to find me to thank me for changing their life for the better? I should acknowledge them, shouldn’t I?
I figured that for the sake of any potential long lost admirers (and blog fodder), I could pay $9.95 for one month, search through my stalker list, then cancel the membership. I’ve spent ten bucks on stupider stuff (hello Walk Hard dvd).
You gotta pay for your months in advance. Figures. Sorry, but $44.85 is too steep an investment just to satisfy my mild curiosity even if it could possibly result in the raddest blog post ever known to man.
If any of you cough up the cheddar to do this, please let me know. Before your stalker strangles you in the shower, that is.
