When I returned, there was a message waiting in my AIM client --
<03:50:25 PM> i say, old bean, have you seen my hat?
<03:50:31 PM> whos this?
This is apparently the result of TheGreatHatsby AIM-bot taking note of my earlier post, and matching me with some random other LJ user...
To bad it happened 2 hours ago, while I was wandering the pallets of BJs.
Perhaps next time.
