- 8:02 am -- leaving for work!
- 8:04 am -- waiting for bus!
- 8:07 am -- bus late! =-(
- 8:10 am -- here it comes! Gosh darn CTA! =-)
- 8:15 am -- chilly on the bus; turn on heat bus driver!
- 8:45 am -- just got to my cube, going to get a cup of joe!
Note to you people: It's only 8:46 am and your entire network of cyber friends want to shoot themselves right in the head. The worst thing Facebook did was allow members to update via mobile devices. This application allows those of you who have no impulse control to pester the rest of us who do.
9) The term "friends" is probably the wrong word chosen by the Facebook powers that be. Associates? Acquaintances? Passersby? Guy Whom I Met Once That If I Saw At A Party I'd Run The Other Way?
8) Facebook can't be good for the single person's dating life. I mean, you tell the guy you're casually dating that you're going out with your girlfriends and then the other guy you're dating has a friend who posts a photo of you (AND TAGS YOU!!) for everyone to see including the guy you're casually seeing who thinks you were out with your girlfriends. Busted.
7) I just received a friend request from a guy with whom I've never spoken or seen but sent my resume to and he never replied. Friends? Oh, sir, I think not! But I accepted him anyway because that's how I roll. Like a chicken.
6) What's with the thumbs-up sign where you can say you "like something." I'm more apt to go ape-shit with a thumbs down sign on the crap I don't like but the friendly Facebook folks don't seem to provide that option. People seem to give the virtual thumbs-up sign with wild abandon. I will have to really really really like something to give you the thumbs up sign. Like "Just saw Daniel Craig streaking past my house."
5) Notice about 99.999% of comments people make on other people's wall should really just be a private e-mail just between the two of them? Why do I need to know so-and-so is looking forward to having dinner with so-and-so and then another follow-up note where so-and-so tells so-and-so that they in fact had a lovely time at dinner? I DON'T CARE. Unless I'm invited to that dinner and you're paying. But apparently some people do care, because I've seen the "I like it" thumbs-up sign crop up after such posts. Don't encourage these people, people!
4) I'd like to apologize publicly to Andy Fenebock. Andy, I don't know who you are. And judging by the fact that my friend request to you is hanging out in friend limbo, you also don't know who I am. I don't know why I sent you a friend request. Because I have never heard of you. It was an accident. (Lesson: Don't Facebook -- a verb -- while drinking wine.) Hit "ignore" and move on, Andy.
3) You really find out on Facebook the folks who have too much time on their hands. Let's help them out and unwittingly sign them up for charity work in their respective communities. But something tells me these people will then take photos with their phones of their charity work and post it throughout the day. "Look at me feeding the hungry!" "Here I am sorting through donated children's clothes!" "This is me with the charity organizer's gun to my head because I won't stop taking photos and posting them!"
2) I think the high unemployment rate might be directly correlated to Facebook. Would you hire anyone you see in these photos? You interview a nice buttoned-up looking fellow for a handsomely paid position and then you Google him and see him doing the macarena with strippers as they lick tequila shots off his bare chest.
1) I hate to say it, but I am loving Facebook. You know why? Because people are strange.
