IO: Random Interference Moments

Ever have an 'Interland moment' in RL, when something or someone compeltely reminds you of Interference? Or ever expose a strange unknown fact that you learned here and people ask you where you found that out? (I.e. I screwed up with my Coldplay ticket dates and had to explain to the people going with me. I was like, 'Yeah, Zoney and Velvetdress are going on the 6th, and Zoney mentioned it to me.." Well, I actually didn't SAY that outloud, I stopped myself in time but managed to mumble off something about a friend mentioning the real date of the show).

Or some co-workers got into a discussion abotu Australia and I was like, 'I know people there!' or I saw a road sign that said "South Toronto" but actually mistook it for South Dakota. Yeesh.

So, considering I've never met any of you guys, it always feels a bit strange to say, 'oh yeah. My friend in *soandso,* or "hey! I know someone who's a vet!" or 'newfies are strange, aren't they?"

Random interference moments.

Sorry. Anyone else have these? How do you deal with it?

you mean something like this:

I went and saw "Finding Nemo" last night, and when the Austrailian Turtles called everyone "Dude" in the movie I thought about diamond

Exactly.

Or, every time someone says "I'm bored" I think ABEL. Actually, I think, 'Oh ABEL' but that's another story

my lit teacher was trying to set up some audio visual thing and he said "i think there's some interference going on" and the first thing that came to mind was the crack.

i don't really have any of those moments, but with goofy abel threads, i sometimes think about how many "oh abels" i'd rate it instead of stars.

most times i go shopping at the stores, and i see the smirnoffs...i think of how bg and i toasted in vegas.

when i see a cat, i think of sicy, how she loves cats.

if i see a picture of a lemur or penguin, i think of meggy.

when i hear duran2, i think of khankhan.

when i correct a misspelled word, i think of salvador.

when i see balls in a toystore...i laugh and think of salome.

when i see a ballet on pbs, i think of sweetest thing's avatar.

when i eat a cookie, i think of lilly.

when i see daisy playing with her barbies, i think of BC.

my whole life is one big reminder of interland

it's hard cos you say "oh i know someone from (insert odd place like newfoundland or australia here)" and people go: how do you know them?

then it turns into a huge nerdfest.

Heh. Yesterday at work was the last day for one of the security guys. He's a U2 fan, and I convinced him to start bringing in some U2 to play after the store closes (we're usually stuck on the standard music mix thing). So every now and then after the store closes he'll put on a Best Of or his own U2 mix while we're working.

Since yesterday was his last day, for the last 2 hours before the store closed he switched off the regular music mix and played all U2. So while I'm listening to The Unforgettable Fire - the entire album start to finish - playing at Ikea during regular store hours (how kickass is that? ) I think to myself "it would be cool if Sicy or another bay area interferencer were here to experience this."
