Without facebook...

A couple of the women I know have recently discovered Facebook. I've been on it for awhile and not sure I really grasp/appreciate the concept but I"m trying. Maybe it's because I blog and visit a few different message boards, that I'm not as drawn into its' addictive properties. But I do find it rather funny...

For example, I loved when Facebook asked me to be friends with Dom Chang and then proudly announced we were friends. That's good because you know...we've been sleeping together for oh about 14 years (shh...yeah, I know I haven't even been married 13 years, don't tell my dad, ok?)

I just read where Facebook has announced that Jason Zimmer is now married. That's good to know: since he's got two kids and a woman named Maria Teresa who sort of has been telling all of us that they've been married since, oh, I don't know...dinosaurs roamed the earth?

And should I be jealous that this same Tracey is "now friends with Jen Hendricks". What am I? Chopped liver? Because come on, we all know that Jen is really Mrs. Kravitz. And would you put someone's picture up on your blog if she weren't your friend?

Yikes: I suppose I have caught a bit more of the Facebook addiction than I care to admit...off to see if anyone has written on my wall or sent me a sea garden creature. And well, if you want to be my friend, just ask...I'll probably say yes (unless you are that exchange student from Taiwan that goes to school at my alma mater. He's like young enough to be my kid. I had to decline his kind invitation to be his friend)

Oh my goodness, I think I forgot to send you a sea creature :) I'm amused by the same things, but LOVE it. I don't really play the "addictive games" I'm just addicted to the whole social experiment!

OK, not I'm just feeling left out. Clearly, I need to get going on this!

Tell me you did not just "out" Mrs. Kravitz?

I have a facebook account, and I still don't get it all. I have a hard time being addicted to something that doesn't make any sense to me. (Good thing I married a guy with a high IQ or the kids would have been doomed!)

uh dodi...maybe you need to check your email because i've been waiting for you to accept my friendship for hours now!

I sent some people some hugs and felt really stupid doing that...

and yeah, jason and i laughed when we saw the 'jason and tracey are now married'

here's one...when you get on someone's friends list and there in black and white it says 'so and so has no friends' jason said..'now that's just sad" made us laugh

My sister talked me into getting an account and I admit that I don't yet see the addiction of it either. I wasn't trying to snub you Martha -- just too stupid (or lazy, actually) to figure out how to let you know what our friendship means to me. :) I've fixed that now, though. Consider yourself "in".

I was too annoyed with their greeting/ultimatum - you must join us in order to view. Perhaps that's why I reacted buy putting facebook directly onto my "couldn't be bothered list".
