At the risk of making the-most-annoying-song-in-the-world be stuck in your heads for the next 2 weeks, it’s a fucking small world, after all.
Way way back in time (2 years ago) when I proposed to Christa, I bought the domain mattandchrista.com. I had given the name a lot of thought, and conducted weeks of extensive market research for the optimum combination of letters to bring in the most traffic. It came down to two finalists: (1) christaandmatt.com or (2) mattandchrista.com.
In the end I chose what I did because it met my exhaustive domain name criteria:
- My name had to be first
Interestingly enough, not long after the launch of mattandchrista.com, I began receiving reports that people went to our website, only to find pictures and information of people that weren’t us.
IT GETS CREEPY FROM HERE.
It turns out there is another coupleized Matt and Christa out there, and they purchased christaandmatt.com. They too went to MSU. They too did the long distance thing.
And the really ironic thing that even Alanis would be proud to sing about – Christa met Christa through Comerica. I’m surprised the fabric of the space-time continuum did not instantly explode and burn.
