Small tworld

There's a Springfield twitterer, whom I don't follow and doesn't follow me, but is a mutual follower with some twits I follow and who follow me, that I've come to figure out is two degrees of separation from me. This would be by virtue of her job and my cousin who many years ago had the very job she has now. It took me a long time to realize this, but I did when I read her Twitter profile after she was retweeted by our mutual tweeps, a couple of whom work at the same place she does, but have different jobs there. The degrees of separation might be even closer because my cousin would sometimes let me, a total outsider to the private company, come to her job and rifle through her files for my own amusement, something I'm sure was totally disallowed. Also, I've been reading this person's blog for a couple years without having any idea of this semi-quasi-stringy relationship. We've never met in real life. I was going to send her a message about all this, but it's too exhausting and borderline weirdo-ish, so I didn't. Plus, we have nothing in common or to do with each other. And so for those reasons, I'm not saying her name. Sorry. (Even writing this was exhausting to the point I probably won't be able to blog for another week.)

What's the deal with these cryptic posts and tweets lately? First @johndstearns, and now this. The suspense is killing me!

"Borderline weirdo-ish." That's a keeper.
