Minnie lived in GVL when I was a kid. Friend of mine occasionally babysat for her son, Ringo. I don’t think Maya was born yet, but I could be wrong. Lost touch after she changed schools.

Maya was born in Gainesville, but not a Gator.
She went to UC Santa Cruz, apparently became friends with Gwyneth Paltrow and Jack Black in college…

You should look up your old friend…

I have a crazy feeling this marketing strategy is going to go down in flames somehow.

I got back in touch with her briefly via Facebook several years ago. We had another friend in common who was better at staying in touch, so we were able to get back in touch. She is a talented artist now, to my understanding. I don’t participate on Facebook anymore. It is too Big Brother for me.

Per yahoo...

“Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph hosted a “grassroots” fundraiser on Monday, along with Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton, that raised more than $6 million for the Democratic ticket.”

Maya is a filthy democrat/liberal.

I hear that. I have no “social media presence”, unless here counts.
I don’t count here since EEGator isn’t my real name…”true story”…
