Facebook is funny. Isn't it? I'm weird when it comes to adding people as Friends. I have two Flickr contacts that "Liked" my page. And I wrestled with adding them as Friends on Facebook. We aren't strangers. We comment regularly on each others' photos. I figure if they wanted to be Friends, they would have done it. Perhaps they have the same feelings about their Facebook as I do. I felt like my Facebook was different than Flickr or this Blog because I looked at it being more personal. How silly is that? I share my tampons pictures on this & my Flickr page! I would never do that on Facebook. Never. But I love Facebook. I have discovered more new music this year because of the site (mostly because of this pusher). I've read funny news stories that I would never have seen if it weren't for Facebook. I got my holiday addresses in record time because of a quick email. Half of those people, I've never had their email addresses prior to the Facebook age. But I also hate Facebook. I hate seeing where people are spending their days. Especially if I'm in the middle of Nowhere, I hate when I see someone is on vacation or lunch at a favorite spot. I'm happy for them, but I want to be somewhere spicy. This is going to be a crazy statement, but I hate when people get overly mushy in their status updates. My kid just threw up all over me, but I love them so much. And isn't motherhood worth it? Really? I fucking hate when my kid pukes on me. I get it. I do. Some people that just are Half-Full types. I love the quick connection, pictures, interests, news bites, & all the other junk that comes with Facebook. I even started a page for my photos. So if you Like my photography page, would you get mad if add you?
I swear that when my kid pukes on me, I won't romanticize it in an Update. I'll be pissed.
