Googling yourself

I can't help myself. Every once in a while I pull up Google and type in "Aaron Hoyt". I know it might be a little narcissistic, but I can't help myself. Every time I do it, I'm more and more amazed by the stuff that I find when I do. I've been on the net for close to ten years now. I can find the first evidence of myself going back to about 1997. Some of the stuff is funny, like this one at Salon. Here's one. Why was I working the day after Christmas? I wonder if this guy is somehow my relative? What creeps me out is finding stuff like this (that's not me by the way). It's just weird to think that there might be some other "Aaron Hoyt" out there that might be living a vaguely familiar life to my own. Or at least one familiar enough, that I had to stop and read twice to make sure that I wasn't somehow involved in some legal case in Arkansas.
