Searching for commonly named friendsI've been searching facebook and the goog in vain for some of my childhood friends. The problem is, they have rather common names. I haven't seen them since we were 12, I don't know where they went after high school, and some may have changed their names by now.
For what I'm guessing is anti-spam or security reasons, Facebook doesn't let you narrow a search by hometown or interests (not that my childhood friends are still into Wham and lik-m-aid). So, let's try a six-degree approach instead. If you know either of these people, let me know! Both would have graduated from high school in 1996.
- Andrea Thomas (or her brother Richard, who I had a crush on). They were from Altoona, Pennsylvania, and did a great Wheat-Thins jingle. Andrea went to Head Royce in Oakland, CA, for high school.
- Cassy Kiehn. (Okay, her name's not so common, but google doesn't recognize it.) She was from Alameda, CA, and I think went to UC Santa Cruz.
