More synchronicity

I meant to keep track of occasions where non mutual Facebook friends had similar status updates close to each other. But like so many of my promises and ideas that one was put to the side (my current exciting idea is photo flash cards for Greek vocab – Greek verbs often describe an action that has many English equivalents like our paradigm word luo (which I can’t be bothered writing in Greek characters).

But now I want to share an odd coincidence and then three people who had the same theme in their status within an hour of each other this morning…

On Tuesday we were driving home from college and I took the wrong turn – while we were trying to figure out how to best get back on track JJJ started playing a song – I didn’t catch the name – but the lyrics were “this is not the way home” and “you’re going the wrong way”… It was like I was driving Bumblebee.

Coffee related status updates are not uncommon on Facebook – but this morning was a coffee withdrawal overload.

The statuses were as follows:

Person one: Coffee Cravings :/
Person two: is going to find some coffee… probably good coffee… probably Campos coffee.
Person three: Need coffee.

What was it about today that prompted this outpouring of caffeine related feelings?

Status Synchronicity: Sultanas

I have this weird fixation with Facebook Status synchronicity occurring between non-mutual friends. I’ve decided I’m going to post them as they occur (sans names because I respect privacy). If a random Facebook friends stumbles here and identifies themself I will give them a prize of the value of a Freddo Frog.


Here are the first two, from within 15 minutes of each other today.

Friend 1: just received a cheque for $3 because my sultanas tasted minty.
Friend 2: Just found a grape seed in a sultana. Wow, this is the best day eva…

Was this you? Claim your prizeā€¦


I’ve had some pretty bizarre points of synchronicity in my life – I’ve mentioned a friend I haven’t seen for a while and bumped into them randomly on the street, or had them send me an email – that sort of thing. It can be a little creepy. Like De javu.

Today I had two random friends from opposite sides of the country almost simultaneously mention their addiction to Facebook Poker.

And two blogs I read pose an identical question about paid content on News Ltd’s news services. Bizarre. For those interested you can head to the Fountainside or Tim and Amy’s blog to take part in the discussion. Tim and Amy were first (yesterday), so I made my comments there. You should comment there and encourage them, they’re new to the blogging thing, and are worth reading.
