Curious, George: Déjà Vu How often do you experience it? Does it bother you, or do you enjoy it? It never really bothered me until yesterday's David Copperfield post. The moment I saw the post, I kinda freaked out; it was the most intense case of déjà vu I have ever experienced. At first I tried to convince myself, "surely I must have read this somewhere else." But then I saw Chy's comment, and I knew that something was awry. It was as if I was living Groundhog Day... And yes, yesterday was quite a bad day for me! Why, why did my déjà vu have to involve David Copperfield!? Is this some evil mutation of the David Hasselhoff recursion??
