    I always feel like...

    ...somebody's watching me.

    Did something I didn't expect to ever do. Signed up for an instagram account because there are a couple people in the chocolate making field I want to follow. So I finally came up with a username it would accept as not already taken which required using something nobody who knows me would in any way recognize, which was annoying. So my username is something completely unconnected to any other online presence I have, I did not associate the account with facebook and I used a different email than I use for facebook. When my signup was completed, it gave me a list of suggested users to follow... all of which are from my facebook friends list.

    George,

    Give it up. The Jetson family needs their id back.

    To lively this thread up. I give you legs.

    In any way, shape or form I could think of without adding a string of random numbers. As was any variation of my actual name that I could think of. I couldn't think of anything I actually wanted to use that it would accept so I may not start using it until I think of something and change it But I give the software credit for being able to track down my facebook friends so quickly.

    Didn't even do that. I combined my two pets into a username. It ends up sounding a bit self-deprecating. I have a lesser platinum ball python and a banana ball python so I went with lesser_banana. Should have thought that one through and noticed the back-handed implication. Definitely gonna change that one.

    That is an $800 fashion top.

    As for liven it up on things, iHeart radio goes through your telephone directory, web history and next-to-kin.

    It's all in the fine print. You're all about browser and IP recognition, nothing less or more.

    Now. Another video. Be patient. She's worth it.

    Now you're just scary. I was watching Great Gig in the Sky videos on youtube yesterday. Not this particular, not very good, version... but that song none-the-less. Where's that tinfoil computer cover I've been meaning to start using?

    I always feel like ...

    - eating good cereal with raisins.
    - drinking piping hot coffee.
    - watching a classic movie.
    - expanding my mind.
    - playing my martin.
    - singing.
    - laughing.
    - sleeping late.
    - staying up late.
    - playing cards.
    - killing ants.
    - listening to music on my phone.
    - farting. (maybe it's the cereal?)
    - checking the forums.

    why isn't "riding my bike" on this list?

    brrr. it's supposd to be march. where the hell is spring anyway?

    I signed up for LinkedIn a few years ago, when I was searching for work. I live in upstate NY, have a degree in mechanical engineering, and work in manufacturing. Periodically, LinkedIn sends you emails of people you may want to 'connect' with who there SHOULD be a workplace connection.

    So, a couple of years ago, one of my suggested connections was a guy who occasionally appears on a national morning radio show I often listen to. But, while i know his name, I can't imagine why LinkedIn would consider him a connection; I live in NY, he lives in CA, I'm in manufacturing, he's in entertainment. Somehow, they found out I listen to this show, but I have no earthly idea how.

    Sometimes it feels like somebody's watching me........

    Instagram recommended a guy from my first communion class, that I haven't spoken to in over 15 years.

    Hell, when I signed up, it automatically began recommending my family members, even though I created an account for the sole purpose of staying in contact with some forum friends.
    I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

    - drinking piping hot coffee. - agreed
    - watching a classic movie. - sometimes, but I have my own ideas as to what I consider classic
    - expanding my mind. - one pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small...
    - playing my martin. - Martin Short? Is that the classic movies you mentioned?
    - singing. - I can't but that doesn't stop me
    - laughing. - I don't always feel like laughing but it's nice when I do
    - sleeping late. - never, not even on my days off
    - staying up late. - not very often due to (see above)
    - playing cards. - I'm pretty sure you're not talking about the online card-based strategy game Hearthstone that I play, so not really
    - killing ants. - not unless they're inside my house
    - listening to music on my phone. - my phone doesn't play music or work too far from it's base
    - farting. (maybe it's the cereal?) - it's your body rebelling against those raisins
    - checking the forums. - yeah, where else could I have this much fun?
