    ABW is EVERYWHERE!
    Yesterday after my untoward curiousity with nareejsam's website, I went to the gym to work off hostility and find computer guy (who usually works out there on Sunday as well).

    While I was pounding out the miles on the treadmill, I was telling one of my fellow gym rats what happened. He was just looking at me sympathically, but not understanding a word - just then from a nearby eliptical trainer - I heard AUNT LILY?

    Seems I've been working out with a lurker for years! It was all great fun.

    Computer guy finally showed up, we took my computer to the nearest bar and fixed it.

    That is so cool but also scary

    To quote one of my favorite ads: "The world is getting smaller ... wear deodorant."

    My life is like that. It seems to run in giant circles that are in and out of my control.

    (Rexanne, It would only be scary if it turned out it was nareej-sam. Jeesh I hadn't thought of that before!?!?)

    Aunt Lilly, congratulations on getting your system back up and running (no tread mill pun intended). Yep, those lurkers are on treadmills across the country, so always keep that in mind as you churn up the mat!! Great end to what started out to be a frustrating experience

    But that's too cool to meet someone from the web outside of it.. !!

    Coincidentally, my aunt's name is also Aunt Lily (my mother's sister, 4th oldest).

    So I'm reading this and the theme music from "Jaws" is rattling around my brain. Of is it "Twilight Zone?"

    Aunt Lily, if that'd happened to me I think it would have been "brown alert" time.

    Rhea, it's funny that you have the theme music from Jaws rattling around in your head. My husband and I have the shark attack from Jaws as our ringtone!

    Just another coincidence?

    Is your husband an icthyologist? Does he work at W.H.? Did I ever mention that I'm a wannabe carcinologist?

    Sorry. Babbling. Happens.

    Cape Cod is an incredible place to live, but a hard place to make a living. You either deal with tourists or commute huge hours.

    It wouldn't surprise me if a lot of folks try something like this.

    I would guess a gym to be the last place where two ABWers would accidentally meet.

    Not quite the same, but just before Christmas I had a decorator in painting a property I'm going to sell, and it turns out he had signed for a small parcel which upon closer inspection was from Google (it was the electronic picture frame they sent out to some advertisers/publishers).

    I mentioned that it was from Google and to cut a long story short, my decorator also did SEO, web design and eCommerce. He just enjoyed decorating when he *wasn't* doing those things!
