One of my regular search alerts is for "Marie Carnes." Whenever Google indexes a new web page with that name, I get a thing in Google Reader. It's not the most uncommon name, but not so common that I'm getting 100s of alerts a day -- more like 100 a year. They call this an ego search, but it's really a way to catch someone saying something defamatory about you.

Occasionally, one of my fellow bloggers will mention me in a post, and that gets an alert. But, most of the time these alerts are for obituaries. Either some old lady has passed away, or someone passed away who left someone behind with that name. Also, more often than not, the subject's middle name is Marie, as is mine. I used to gasp at all these obituaries flying by, until I realized it's not me.

Over the weekend I got an alert that someone was arrested. And looking at her picture, and her birth date (she's between my daughters' ages), and the charges, upset me. So, I just want to say, Girl get some help and get your shit together as soon as possible. You'll be glad you did.

Booking pics are most often so sad. Count that one in.

That's a very "Tron"-sh pic above. In fact, if you look really close you can see a couple of cyclists racing along the upper knife edge. It's pretty fuzzy, but I'd swear one of them looks like Frosty! ;)

Frosty's probably just getting his exercise in for his big come back. LOL.
