Been a While…Who Are You Again?

I admit that I was slow in coming but eventually joined in on the technological bandwagon and am the proud owner of a Myspace page, Facebook page, and blog.  At first I couldn’t get enough of Myspace and all free time was spent perusing through profiles.  Then came Facebook.  I joined Facebook to “keep up” with those friends who didn’t have Myspace.  But my interest in both have waned.  I do however think the blog will keep my interest sparked.

For the past few months both my Facebook and Myspace pages have been mostly dormant.  Then out of the blue I started receiving messages and friend requests from the most random people.  After shuffling through the weirdos and freaks on Myspace, I linked over to Facebook to see who my requests were from.  Former high school alumni.  Now you may be wondering, “What’s so strange about that?”  What’s strange is that I haven’t talked to any of the five of them since the 7th grade.  And we’ve been graduated for 11 years.  Come to think of it, I’ve never spoken to two of them before in my life even though I think we MIGHT have had some classes together at some point.  And all five of them were in the “popular click” in school while I was…well I was not.  I wasn’t really anything in high school which is the best position to find yourself.

Being an analyzer (and incredibly bored at work) I took a look at my five people and this is what I’ve noticed:


5 people

3 girls

2 guys

girl #1 is single,  girl #2 and #3 are married

guy #1 is single,  guy #2 is married

all 5 have 100 or more friends listed on their page


Conclusion:  No matter sex or marital status, the most important thing is to have as many people as possible listed as collector’s items friends on your page.

I don’t get this.  I thought the point of both pages was to stay in contact with people you actually want to stay in contact with.  People you know.  Maybe they can’t help it, after all they were part of the cool, popular crowd.  Maybe having people around all the time is something they’re indoctrinated with.  Or maybe they just have me confused with someone else. 





Holy crap work is borring!!  I work for a company that depends on our customers to send in their photos/slides/videos for us to scan and upload to their website.  This is my third holiday season working for this company and it’s usually the busiest time of the year.  Last year,  for about 3 months, I worked 6 days a week and averaged about 70-75 hours during that week.  The paychecks were awsome!!  However, I don’t know what the deal is this year but it’s December already and I’m pulling teeth to find stuff to do to fill an 8 hour shift.  Some things I have managed to do while maintaining my regular work include: reading CNN online about 10 times a day, reading People online about 10 times a day, reading other people’s blogs, writing my own blogs (like I’m doing now), check my email about 10 times a day, chat with people on messenger, surf myspace, surf facebook, read Dracula, study Spanish, done most of my Christmas shopping, paid online bills, play on flickr, taken care of the visiting teaching numbers, thought up new recipes to try out with fudge (now that I’m a pro!), addressed my Christmas cards…for crying out loud!!!  WHAT ELSE CAN I DO??!!?
