A neat orkut experience

Published by at 7:33 am under Declan,Friends

I had a neat Orkut experience today. I had a piece of spam saying that someone had put something in my scrapbook. I was bored and hadn’t logged into orkut in over a year, so what the heck, I’ll see who’s spamming me.

Dang it, forgot my login and pw… Ok, got them sent to me… Is this really worth it? Finally I get in and find this:

Thais: Hi Declan,
I’m not sure if you still remember me. We went to U-High together in our Senior Year. I’m from Brazil and since we left High School, we haven’t heard from each other. I was taking a look here and gave a couple of “old” names and found you! As a matter of fact, I haven’t heard from anyone from U-High since 1983 (!!) but was glad to see, that you are doing fine! I went to U-High’s Site and found our class too. Do you remember me? I have good memories of you, one in special, as we went to a day on a lake, (dont’t remember the name) with our senior class, and you, claudia (my friend from Brazil too) and me were kidding together.
May be you still remember us 😉
I would also want to up date my data on our U-High Site. But we can do that later, I think you are the one responsable for it, aren’t you?
I’m amazed, how this orkut can conect people and very old memories! I would be glad to hear from you!
See you! Thais

So cool! Like she said, I hadn’t heard from these fun Brazilian exchange students since high school. I’d think of them from time to time, wondering where they’d gotten to.

Looking at the breadcrumb trail that leads her to me, there’s Charlie (coworker from UIUC)!

So, thanks for knowing the right folks, Charlie!
