I Google Me

It’s always fun to google oneself. Especially in mid-afternoon, when I need a poke to stay awake. Good to trade a few minutes of productivity for hours of excellent results.

Googling “Zephyr98” I get my own blog as #1, followed by entries for a highly successful online poker player; a deviant sketch artist of horse heads; a registered player at the online (and I bet totally killer) gaming site, !Soul-Arena!; a 60 year old guy at TrueNudists.com; and, my second favorite, a stats-stealing site called http://www.isthisyour.name, where I learn that while my real name (Kurt Kremer) in binary is

01001011 01110101 01110010 01110100 00100000 01001011 01110010 01100101 01101101 01100101 01110010

…I am only modestly envoweled; but that my personal power animal is the mighty sphynx cat! (I sense a feline army waiting for my commands–you will all pay for laughing at my modest voweledge!) And that there are likely onlyΒ 6 other people in the US with my name. (Since there can be only one, and I’m not a brawler, I hope we’re spread far and wide. Still, I better brush up on my fencing skills.)

And their final tidbit (and this is just plain creepy), my magic number:

“Your ‘Numerology’ number is 5. If it wasn’t bulls**t, it would mean that you are adventurous, mercurial, and sensual. You seek growth through adventure and different life experiences. Although you are a critical thinker, you can sometimes over-ponder an issue.”

Get out of my head, you freaks!

Here, though, is my favorite Google result. Do I really need to say why?

Ah, I feel energized. Now to get back to Tweetdeck.

  1. (Aw, that’s nice to be described as highly successful)

    Seriously though, it’s pretty wierd randomly googling myself and the top link coming out as someone talking about randomly googling yourself; I felt like I had to say hello at that point!

    Best wishes,

    Steve/(also) Zephyr98 πŸ™‚

  2. Heh – I have a very wandering memory, which just wandered back to this πŸ™‚

    I’m the poker-playing Zephyr98, and was very surprised to find anyone else had come up with the name!

    • My blog name is a combo of a character’s name in a novel-in-progress and the year my son was born (who is also the model for that character). I’ll see if I can work a little poker in that character’s profile, just as an Easter egg.

  3. The wandering memory returns πŸ™‚ And that’s a very nice touch regarding your novel! I must admit, remembering about this article actually brought me back to playing poker myself (I’d stopped for a while, remembered this, and immediately wanted to play again) – going well so far!

  4. Good luck with the poker gig–hope it’s profitable. It’s always been seen as both a seamy and romantic way to make money–the anti-hero’s path to profit.
