*GMail is Creeping Me Out

Okay, so I knew that gmail promised "targeted ads"...but it's a little creepy. In various e-mails about blogs, I've gotten ads for different blogging tools. In an e-mail from the lovely SarahK, in which she mentioned her nearsightedness, I got ads for Lasik surgery.

I realize this is all computer-generated, but it's like...they're watching me.

Bah...Sarah took my line! Just don't answer the door when a Google truck is in your driveway!

Because of this comment, you will soon be getting ads for breast implants :-)

Nice try, but comments don't go to gmail. They go...elsewhere.
