Where's the love?

Do you ever Google your own name?

Sometimes I do. Maybe it's boredom. Maybe it's egotistical. Whatev, I do it. And I think know you secretly do too.

My latest Google search brought up something interesting ... my name appeared on the Utah State University website. Now, from the get-go that doesn't sound too odd. But here's the kicker ...

I showed up on the "Lost Alumni" page.

Uh.

Really?

As you all know, I will never speak a negative word about my alma mater. I heart Utah State. I anticipate one day being buried just outside of the Logan Cemetery boundaries {which happens to be on Spectrum grounds}. But again ... Really?

I go to every basketball game ... I've sat in Section _ Row 10 Seat 3 for the last 10 years! Every home football game my body is at {really, who else does that?} at the 50-yard line. I live less than two blocks away from campus! I pay $25 every year when I register Wilson just so he can have Aggie plates. I just ran up Old Main five times two weeks ago! I buy more Aggie paraphernalia the week before the WAC basketball championships than most people do in a lifetime. You sent me a post card a month ago that sent me to a website which you have created that says, "Mindy Thornley is a true Aggie!" I've been sledding with Stew Morrill!!!

How.on.this.green.earth.have.you.lost.me?

Excuse me while I go shed a tear ... and then immediately update your files so you will know that I have never left you, USU. I heart you. The end.

Happy 29th birthday, Hilly! ;)

Sad.

That is pretty strange. You are definitely the most die-hard Aggie I know of.

Jake & April said...

That is great!! They don't know what they are missing by putting you on the lost list.

While I, on the other hand, have lived in Logan my entire life and been to ONE Aggie football game in 22 years of life. Are you about to jump down my throat? Cause I'm getting that vibe before I even post this!

Personally, I think it's okay to be considered lost alumni. It means they don't have (or think they don't have) your current address/phone number so they can't harass you with requests to donate money. While I also love USU, I currently don't have the money to donate (I would like to donate in the future, when I'm rich) so I'd just as soon not get all the phone calls and mail.

How dare they put you on the lost alumni page!

Kat said...

HA! I googled my name one time, and as it turns out, I'm a famous writer for the New York Times. :)

Meg said...

I have never googled me.. I must try!

One of the things that I associate you with is USU..I hoped you set them straight. I have also been catching up on the posts that I have missed and I have to say my friend you are one awesome lady and so hilarious. I would like to read a post a day from you in June. You have such a way with writing and words.

hmmm.... now I want to google myself and see if I am a lost aggie... I think I will do that right now! I don't usually google myself though, it's too weird!
