What was that?!!

This morning I was briefly on my wife's MacBook Pro when all the sudden I witnessed an aberration never before seen by my virgin eyes.
It was a name. The name belongs to my wife's friend, and dare I tell, it is no coincidence that person will be returning to our quaint town this very night.
You should have seen it. I was so moved and taken off guard by its appearance I can scarcely bring myself to tell you exactly where it could be found.
See the image attached below. This name scrolled from left to right somewhere between the Gmail notifier and the date, as if mocking me, but for only a second and then it was gone.
I have done all I could to find its source. Naturally, it occurred to me it might be a beacon and for that I went searching with the spotlight, which only lit to send me here or there but not in the direction I seek.
Please, if any of you, just one of you, know the mystery behind this event by God let me know. The sooner the better. I am prepared to hear the truth of the matter.

It was the name of the wireless network. Mine will do this every once in a while when my network "hiccups" or briefly loses connectivity. If you turn airport off in the toolbar and then back on and watch, when it reconnects to the network it will briefly scroll the name.
