Greetings Gentles All.
I have a query for thee to ponder, should your disposition proove affable to such an act of contemplation.
Why is it, that everyone I have met and/or made friends with this semester, seems to be a friend of a friend that I already have? Why is it so? Furthermore, why is it that these links seem to be somewhat unexpected and unforseen? It is not that I find this strange real-life demonstration of the six degrees of seperation uncomfortable or annoying, quite the opposite in fact, it is simply that it can, at times take me by suprise.
Let me give you a long, convoluted illustration of this: A new friend of mine Sarah, whome I met in Sociology, introduced me to Liam who also does sociology with us. Now Sarah is friends with my friend Daniel, however we didn't discover this until a week or two after Sarah and I had become friends, when I told her to come meet me in the Queer Room and Daniel brought her in. In a completely unrelated but equally entertaining twist, Daniel's boyfriend's name is also Liam. As if these weird conicidence wasn't entertaining enough, I was sitting in the Lecture theatre with Anna and Liam today, waiting for Scott, our lecturer to arrive. Now, I have known Anna since first year, as she is in my social science core, but other than that we were otherwise unconected acquaintence wise, until I discovered that she went to school with my friend Claire who I know from working at Woolies. However, as we were sitting there chatting, I happened to mention the city that I live in, which amused Liam because his girlfriend also comes from the same city as me. He asked if I knew a girl called Hanna, of about a year older than me. After telling me a bit about her, and showing me a picture on his mobile, we determined that I did indeed know Hanna, and that I had in fact been in the same class as her in year 5 and 6 in primary school, gone to the same Middle School with her and also gone to the same High School with her. So thus, while I no longer know her particularly well, I do know her and as such another random link in my group of friends has been added.
Thus, In summary, I would put another question to you: When the fuck is the Bowl of Petunias and the Very Suprised Sperm Whale going to appear?
