I've Been Googled

Alright, I have something by way of news. It's an mysterious, anonymous piece of news.

I have been Googled (can I just say how much I love that "Googled" is now in the dictionary?), and it wasn't by me.

I received this message from Ziggs.com informing my that my profile there has been viewed from a Google search:

To: Sonia Carrière
Company: S. M. Carrière

Visitor Location: Ottawa, ON (Canada)
Date: September 15, 2009
Time: 10:43 PM EST

No one except my good friends know my middle name. Well, now you do too. I know that it isn't anyone from Tor (damn it!) because the "visitor location" was Ottawa. I've been Googled by a fellow Ottawan.

Should I be concerned?

Stay tuned....

That is kinda cool. What's even cooler is that you have an award waiting on my page. http://cc-chronicles.blogspot.com

Actually you have two, I didn't put it in the original post but I'm going to add you to the Quest Award since your blog is new.
