Random Thought for Thursday: Google Maps Famous

Whether covertly or overtly, many people these days want to achieve fame on the interwebs. YouTube famous, Instagram famous, Facebook famous, etc. – I mean, who wouldn’t want to be the next meme? And once you break out, who knows how far you can go. Grumpy Cat’s upcoming movie is just one example of how far internet fame can take you.

We recently discovered that we are Google Maps famous. Wife and I were checking into some things and decided to check the street view of our house. Lo and behold, me and Sweetie loadin’ the stroller. Ironically, a couple of days later a childhood friend sent a message saying he saw us while looking up our zip code. And so our trending begins…

Hey look...us!

Hey look…us!

Yep, that’s our little bungalow, rain barrel and all. I did crop out the hotrod Versa sitting on the curb. There is only so much of us you can cram into one photo.

I am thinking that I will start a group for other people captured by the little Google cars. We are a community too! Really I get just a bit creeped out by the fact that I didn’t realize they were driving past capturing the street view. Thankfully I wasn’t dancing in front of the window.

So there it is, Google Maps Famous. Are you street view famous too? Let me know in the comments!
