Embarrassing

Two things...
  • I registered on Facebook earlier this week for the sole purpose of getting JM's new phone number, since she announced on her blog that her contact info was available that way. I just wanted to know how the unpacking was coming and all, so really, a phone number was all I needed. I couldn't imagine that navigating Facebook would be all that hard, but well, it was. Somehow when I registered, it pulled up everyone in my gmail contacts and had them checked to send e-mail invites to "friend" me. I went down the list carefully unchecking everyone except Julie.

    Or so I thought.... If you read here and maybe have commented a time or two and you got an e-mail request from Facebook saying that I wanted to "friend" you, please understand that, while I'm sure you all would be wonderful friends and all, that e-mail was sent because I'm pretty sure Facebook just randomly selected you. It couldn't be that I screwed up. No, it couldn't. I don't really intend to do anything with Facebook. I already have too much online stuff to occupy my attention.

  • I went shopping for a futon for my living room this evening. I want a nice loveseat or small couch, but um, well, I needed to get something sooner, so I thought I'd get a futon that I could move to the second bedroom when I buy a loveseat/couch. I didn't find anything I liked in the first store I went to, but when I came out of the store, I noticed that one of my front tires is nearly bald and there's a bad spot on it. How did that happen?!? I knew I was getting close to needing new tires, and had planned to do it after the next payday. I can't believe how bad it is!

    So, tomorrow I'm buying two new tires and the seating for the living room will have to wait. Do you think if I should happen to have company before then, like maybe this coming Sunday, that we could just go sit in the car and admire the new tires while we try to have a nice conversation?

If they hadn't kicked me off of facebook (for not being human) I would totally have friended you!

bury the lede much??!?!

Too funny. Well, I friended you cause I thought you asked on purpose. I thought you had joined the dark side with the rest of us. My friend David calls Facebook "cybercrack". Apt.

JM- I can't imagine what you're talking about. ;)

I briefly tried playing around on Facebook and decided I just didn't have the time for it!
