I feel like I've been mugged on memory lane...


Well, this year seems to be the year where everyone I knew from years ago have hunted me down. For the most part, it's a wonderful thing to get in contact with people who I've missed over the years....Except for one person.

I believe everyone knows this type of person.
It's the person who no matter what you try to do to get away will blithely continue on updating you on every single thing that has happened since yesterday. Everything. *shudder* Also known as the "Way Too Much Information"( WTMI ) girl/guy.

When I finally moved away from this person's sphere, I silently thanked whatever deity present for getting away from her, and "accidentally" lost her contact info.

Well, I signed onto my account (like I do) and there was this message from a screen name I didn't know...thinking it might be either a) A new fan boy who's in shock that that I know about ________(fill in the blank) or b) a person who wants to know about my dog, I opened it.

Damn.

After 10 years, 10 years of not having to hear about how many times she had to chew the piece of gum before the flavor ran out (this conversation still haunts me to this day.) My "WTMI" girl has found me.

Damn.

For the first message,I had to scroll down three times to read it. Three times! I didn't respond to it, but since myspace will let you know when a person last checked in, well...I know I now have 3-4 more messages from her waiting for me...

So...do I pretend that I'm not me? (which I'm sooo tempted to do) Do I tell her in some nice way to back off a bit?...or do I just tell her to do something anatomically improbable?

*sigh*

If it's that bad, delete her and block her, you don't need to suffer fools.

I too have recently discovered the same problem with MySpace. I decided to use it to keep in touch with distant friends who would rather say 10 words than write up an email.

My advice, unless you bump into somewhere, just delete the message and hopefully she will get the message herself.

Well, we will have to check back on this and see how well your decision panned out...
