Where are they now?
Go ahead, I’ll wait.
Or I could just tell you what happened when I did.
I found out that Oprah has a TV show with this title.
I found out that we have an unhealthy interest in former child stars and celebrities from 20 years ago. That was all “above the fold” as they say in newspaperland — the search results I can see without scrolling down. In fact, it was pretty much all that was there on the bottom half of the first page of results, too.
And while I was Googling, my subconscious was offering me little shiny bits that might, you know, help. Like the Latin phrase, Sic transit gloria. It turns out the version I know is abbreviated from the actual phrase:
Sic transit gloria mundi
Thus passes the glory of the world.
And on the pedestal, these words appear:My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!Nothing beside remains. Round the decayOf that colossal Wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away.
Now how did I get started on this? Because Signals designed a t-shirt just for me, although they seem to be offering it to others, too, and it got me to thinking about another way to ask this question.
Where are they now, indeed.
