Workplace randomness  
My current workplace, Ooyala, was a little odd to interview at because it has a recruiting video (scroll down to see) of people who already work there, so I had met a bunch of my interviewers and random people in the hall before showing up. So I kept seeing people I felt like I knew walk by... It kept feeling weird, like I was interviewing in my living room or something.

Then on my interview I randomly met a guy who I know socially and who has dated my wife. And a guy I used to hang around with at CMU. Ooyala actually has a sizeable CMU contingent.

More recently, I referred another friend who got hired, and now works there.

So I should just decide Ooyala is going to be a social hangout of random people I know. Today at lunch, it turned out that a girl I dated years ago was interviewing there. I'd had no idea, I just saw her across the table.

I always tried to date outside my interests for just those reasons.
Unless the girl had big, perky boobs!

We actually get along great and still talk to each other.

But it was surprising :-)

well...
having one, talk to anybody else
would likely keep me from ever dating anybody ever again!

I refer to this as "don't shit where you eat". I only date one or two people from each social circle. :)

"don't shit where you eat."
=
"don't fuck where you work."
=/=
"don't fuck where you shit."
