Spy aides for amateur stalkers.

Otherwise known as... Facebook!

I signed up for Facebook yesterday and it kind of blew my mind a little. I got an account, set everything up and about an hour later I was in contact with people that I haven't seen in YEARS. It's kind of creepy... yet kind of awesome.

I would never go to any great lengths to track someone from high school down. That would be weird. But if you find them on facebook, it's suddenly not so wierd. They want to talk to you about old times. They want you to find them.

If nothing else, it's a handy tool for determining exactly how elaborate your back story will have to be at your 10 year high school reunion. I mean, I was planning on going with your standard "own a condo, work in media, own a YARIS, I know local celebrities and I saw Pierce Brosnan outside the art gallery... twice." But if all of my classmates are extremely successful, I might have to make my lies slightly bigger and more impressive. Like, say... "own a castle, work in movies, bought a hybrid Hummer, know many international celebrities and made out with Pierce Brosnan outside the art gallery... twice."

Just like the boy scouts always say, Be Prepared. They say that shit for a reason.
