So check this out: I googled "To the Depths" to see what came up... you know, wondering if there's a lot of people using the same title as I am.

Top results:

  1., a World of Warcraft site
  2. A band called To the Depths on
If you know anything about me at all, you know that I hold an all-consuming hatred for World of Warcraft. Besides its geek-nerd factor, it almost ruined my marriage and my life. WoW is a soul-consuming pit of despair, sucking good husbands, wives, fathers, brothers and sons into its black hole of doom. 

I haven't actually heard this To the Depths band, but who knows? Maybe it's not so bad sharing a name with them. And I don't have anything against pastors with a creative flair... so overall, it's not so bad sharing a name with them either. 

But guess what? If you google "to the depths aubrey ortega" you get a bunch of blog posts by me. And that's pretty nerdy-awesome. For some reason it makes me feel validated as a human. (So does this!)


  1. Thanks for the link! And the google doesn't make you feel validated as a makes you feel validated as a writer, dreamer, a creative presence...those beautiful kids you birthed...they are what truly make you feel validated as a human. :)

  2. Haha, you're absolutely right Colleen! :)

  3. I think it is funny that the first result for To The Depths is a World of Warcraft reference page.

    If only I could get back the 40+ DAYS of playing time I have in that game...I'd devote it to making money instead of sitting on my ass doing essentially nothing...It didn't cause any problems in my life, but still...

  4. Not a bad thing to go back and change... if you find that time machine, let me in on it, ok?


Comments make me ultra happy! Tell me who you are, what you think, why you're here...
