Sketchy, sketchy…

Sketchiness in the land of google plus.  Got circled (man, that sounds predatory…) by someone with a cute cartoon for their picture and their profile in Arabic (gulp).  They also appear to live at the bottom of the ocean.

Who puts an island in the middle of the ocean?  Even weirder, who puts a house on that island?  The type of person who builds a house between two continents is the type of person who wants to be bothered for no fucking reason – not the type who’d be circling people on G+.  Perhaps this person is a ship-wrecked pirate reaching out to me across the internet for help.

Or maybe it’s a spam machine.  My friend who is visiting says I shouldn’t re-circle them.  I like moar friends.  What say you?

Also, she is an amateur photographer who decided to take pictures of me making this blog post.  For a couple minutes she was cursing at her camera, wondering what was wrong with the focus.  Then she realized she had taken off her glasses.  :)  She is going to be my laser tag teammate later.  Between that and my general clumsiness, I think we’re gonna get romped.  :P

Lazy Sundays with friends rule.

    Who puts an island in the middle of the ocean?

    Dude, if it was on land, it wouldn’t be an island.

    Tristan de Cunha is “…the most remote inhabited archipelago in the world, lying 2,816 kilometres (1,750 mi) from the nearest land…” It’s part of the British Commonwealth and has a rip-roaring 264 residents on its 38.7 square miles of land.

    One thing about Tristan, it’s also an dormant volcano (the entire population had to be evacuated between 1961 and 1963, when the volcano rapidly became less dormant and trashed quite a lot of the town).
