Because I’m a sucker for any iTunes-manipulating blog meme: The twenty-five songs in my digital music collection with the longest run time. As originated by David at Better Living Thru Blogging!.

Yep, there are some lengthy ones, especially the hour-plus beasts. A little bit of everything, from danceclub-quality mixes to classical. None of them are strung together by me — I acquired all these tracks in the single-file format they appear in here. They’re all music tracks — no comedy, spoken-word or any other anomalies.

Who is Jennifer Cole?

That’s the question, isn’t it? Well, that’s my question, anyway.

Yesterday, I received a Facebook invitation from one Jennifer Cole. This is the second Facebook invite I’ve gotten in the past week, the first one being from none other than David. Ever since the former college-only social network got a much-buzzed-about facelift, all the hip folk have been flocking to it, natch.

But not me. I politely declined David’s invite, on the basis of my general disregard for all such sites. I find this here blog to be more than sufficient for my online-engagement urges. (Not that I’m completely out of the join-in loop; I have a LinkedIn profile that, coincidentally, is just beginning to bear fruit.)

I’d like to decline Jennifer’s invitation as well, on those terms. But, since the auto-generated email came from the “invite@facebook.com” address, I can’t directly email her back and politely decline. Plus, even though the name is tantalizingly familiar, I simply can’t place her. I’m crossing my fingers that she’s not a close, personal friend… Or at least, not one of the many, many Jennifers in my past.

So, instead, I’m using this blog post to turn her down. Jennifer, if you’re out there, thanks but no thanks. And please, write me directly so I can figure out who you are.
