So today I got a friend request for a hot looking 18 year old girl on Facebook. Oddly – I am kind of used to the random requests from fans and folks I meet at fan conventions, and I typically send a polite “please follower me on my Blog and Twitter instead” email back since I keep my Facebook fairly private. There was just one odd thing:
The girl had the same last name as me.
After a couple of calls to relatives, it turns out that the “hot girl” is my cousin who (along with my uncle and her sister) kind of “fell of the planet” years ago.
(Insert creepy “ew” feeling here for the initial hot girl comment earlier. I did. Still grasping my age at this moment and freaking out a bit mentally. I’ll be fine, though.)
My last memory of her was talking to her on the phone around circa 1999. She was thanking me for getting her and her sister signed CDs from all the members of ‘N Sync (which I got through my connections at Universal; long story.)
So yeah. Odd. It seems my uncle is also on Facebook, too – but I didn’t hear from him.
Strange things are afoot at the Circle K, Ted.
