A Tale Of Facebook & A Strawberry Pie Recipe

Are you on Facebook? It is an interesting little phenomena. Here's the rundown of how it goes with me. It starts at night after the kids are in bed. Tonight, well and last night too, I've had a bag of Peanut M&M's by my side, protein ya know, and it is so fun.

You scroll down and check out everybody's status of what they're doin', what they're not doin', what they wish they were doin', etc... Then you feel kinda nosey like you just looked in their underwear drawer, but you go on having a good old time finding out all kinds of stuff about folks.

People on FB say and do funny things so you leave comments. You wake up the next day and check your Email and you think, and I do mean every time, WOW, Aren't I just little Miss Popularity today...I have 36 new emails. You click on Check Mail and then you're like, aw man, that's right, I commented on 15 people's comments last night because everyone was being so funny. Now I'm linked for life to this comment and every time someone else comments FB proudly makes sure I'm gonna know about it.

And if you sneeze on FB people know because It'll show up on the homepage.

People write the darndest things on there too. Sometimes I'm like, Hello, have you forgotten who you're friends with and whose reading the trash you've gotten yourself into? Good conversation starters at dinner though.

And if you are wandering, I don't really know what's with the multi-colored, centered, Bold & Italics posts lately. They just seem cheerful and make me happy. Kinda like the bag of Peanut M&M's I just polished off.

So, there you have it, my thoughts about Facebook. Riveting reading material I know. Now that your day is complete I hope you have a good en'.

You know, Anna, you can change your preferences to NOT send you an e-mail whenever anyone does something. It will still show up in your notifications, but won't send you an e-mail. Go to "settings" then "notifications."

When reading your blog, I felt like I was watching "You Got Mail". :)

yep, there was a reason I had to get off of FB. Addict. But, you almost made me want to go back!

Yes - the Facebook phenomena. Thankfully I've not been sucked in too badly. Blogging is enough of an addiction for me. It is all very voyeristic though isn't it? Ah well - I'm off to Facebook to check out people's status's.

My thoughts EXACTLY. I read statuses for kicks and wonder...seriously, did they just post that to the public??????

I love FB too. It's connected me with some friends from long ago and far away.

You asked about the checked fabric in my office. The chair came from Ethan Allen, as did the desk. It was one of the fabrics I had to choose from. I love it, but unfortunately, am not much help for you.

Come back and visit. I love your lighthearted blog posts.
