OK, Google. We're Friends.

Thank you for trying so hard, Google! I have reluctantly come to terms with your incessant need to get to know me better. I don't mind letting you stalk me via my smartphone and learn more about me by staking-out the various computers from which I search.

I am sort of pleased that you have figured out my schedule so well. You know that I only drive into campus on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays this term. You, thusly, can now be counted on to offer navigational aid for both my comings and goings. Honestly though, I do sort of know the best route already.

Moreover, I am pretty aware of the weather without your help but the fact you keep offering up stats for my city and where ever I happen to be, pleases me.

OK, Google

You seem to have paid attention when I told you there were no particular stocks I wanted to follow. You never did ask if you can keep me up-to-date on the value of Bitcoin.

In addition, I do like the added websites you find after I have looked up some fact or other, especially when I'm planning a trip abroad. Also, providing updates from sites I frequently visit is a nice touch. Keep at it, I guess.

Please, continue thinking of ways to help me. For example, I'm impressed when you provide business venues which happen to be close to me when I'm out of town. You may even consider this message as carte blanche to step it up a notch of two. I promise to let you continually dig around my personal proclivities.

Bear in mind, I wouldn't mind an occasional joke or two.
