It’s amazing you who end up meeting in New York City


Last night, I had dinner and went bhangra dancing with Larry Page's fiancée's brother's co-worker.

He's a nice guy.

    This didn’t happen to take place at "31 Flavors" did it? :)

    My mate, who used to work for MS, knows a guy who has worked with someone who knows YOU.

    I hear you’re a nice guy. ;)

  3. Hah. I can top that. I have pictures of Ales Holecek in swimming trunks.

    Okay, I am going to nitpick.  I read the title of the blog about 4 times before it sank in "…you who…".  My brain was having problems transposing that.

  5. For some reason I find this post hilarious.

    "I read the title of the blog about 4 times before it sank in"

    Whoa, that’s weird. I only noticed the mistake you when pointed it out!

    "Whoa, that’s weird. I only noticed the mistake you when pointed it out!"

    It’s like that silly paragraph with the middle letters of every word jumbled up.  Most people will look at it and make sense of it because all the right pieces are there, and most of it is in the right place, and so your brain makes it make sense for you.  There are some people who see or read or grok things slightly differently, and for them, it just won’t click like that, they have to consciously find and correct the error.

    (I didn’t notice the error until he pointed it out either, and in fact, I had to look back a couple of times before I saw it.)

    "Larry Page’s fiancée’s brother’s co-worker"

    So what does that make you two? :D

    I too found this post hillarious.

    Oh yeah, by the way, I’ve met Richard Taylor. He’s most commonly associated with Peter Jackson and Weta.

    Now you can all say you’re this much closer to me.

    LMAO!  That was nice.

  13. Carl Page (Larry’s father) was one of my professors at grad school.

    I hope you had fun doing Bhangra…

    I once sat next to someone on the bus whose cousin’s brother’s uncle’s sister’s first husband’s second son’s girlfriend’s father’s friend’s co-worker’s bosses wife’s brother’s daugher-in-law’s sister’s second cousin’s brother’s friend’s cousin’s sister had a cat that looked a little bit like Josef Stalin.  What are the chances!

     Dave

    The chances are high.  All cats look a little like Josef Stalin.

    So how’d that come up in conversation?  "Hey, I work with a guy whose sister is engaged to Larry Page."

    And are we talking about Google’s Larry Page or just another guy with the same name…. reminds of a Seinfeld episode where George thinks he has bought Jon Voight’s, the actor, old car, but it’s really was just some dentist named John Voight.
