krazy koati

I look around but it's you I can't replace

Taking a moment from the pinball convention reporting: a couple days ago bunny_hugger got a plea for money from the Michigan State University alumni association. That's fair enough since she got her degree there and all, but the curious thing is that my name was on the label too. That's pretty good work of the MSU alumni association considering that Rutgers and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute haven't figured out where I am yet.

But then --- how do they know that bunny_hugger and I are married? We've kept our maiden names, after all, and yeah, they know my address from my library card. But making the leap to supposing two people with different last names and the same address are related seems like a potentially hazardous one.

I'd be glad if you read them after all.
