On Fame Infamy

My wife came home yesterday from her new job with an amusing story. Apparently, someone at her workplace went to Siena, and was telling her coworkers about this weird guy that she knew, who ran around campus in a trenchcoat with a big cat-in-the-hat style hat. "That's my husband!" Minna announced.

Now, this girl wasn't someone that I actually knew. Our overlap was only for a few months- she entered school as I was leaving, but she did work ITS which means we had met at least once or twice. She predicted that I wouldn't remember her, and was correct. But... what really gets me is that she was telling a story about me, to other strangers.

It's just weird for people you don't know to be telling stories about you. This isn't the first time that happened, but the first in recent history. It just weirds me out, in a good way.




A day late, and a dollar short, but yesterday was Nikola Tesla's 150th Birthday. I hope he is enjoying a long and profitable life in whatever alternate Universe he translated himself to.
