the social network

Crawling out of a two year hermit mode.

FaceBook got on my shitlist there for a while and I put it in timeout. I knew it all along but only recently came to accept that holding an entity in contempt is really silly…. Wasn’t it a line from Family Guy?

“… and remember kids! Guns don’t kill people, dangerous minorities do!”
“Remember kids… FaceBook doesn’t destroy relationships… Emotional vampires, narcissists, predators and the emotionally immature do!”

I’ve gotten pretty decent at crafting my own reality – my virtuality shouldn’t be any different right? … well… in theory.

So I turned FB back on… and now trying to figure out the rest of these damn social networking sites I’m half-ass on all fit together.

Thinking too much? – yup… This is the kinda crap that wakes me up in the morning over coffee.

Not represented in the working diagram is LiveJournal – which I don’t want to get rid of because it’s great for discussion… But not everything I throw into here needs, warrants or welcomes commentary.

Discussion on WordPress seems to just get me dozens of Russian Spam comments daily – so I’ve globally disabled commenting on there.

Still don’t really know what to do about Tumblr…. All the cool kids are doing it… but…

I’ve never been one of the cool kids….

just one of the strange ones.

OK… I’m not the type to blog – let alone do one of these little silly “me-me” things – but I ran accross this on LiveJournal and I had to try it.

what in the hell are these answers based on?

and besides.. chrisglass HAS a pair of my pants…

thank you


You all completely rock… I “try” to acknowledge all comments as a form of saying “thanks for saying something / reading / caring” – especially since I COMPLETELY SUCK at keeping up with your journals and making comments.

It’s really a warm fuzzy thinking that so many folks would take a few moments to say something nice when all you know of me is from this blog thing.. (which I don’t have).

Thank you for taking the time to say all the nice things you said on the LJ-Only post I made documenting probably my darkest day of recent personal / professional history.

It means a LOT.

We’ll roll outa this just fine – and be all the wiser from it.

thank you


One hundred people think I’m interesting.

Correction: one hundred people think the blog, which I don’t have, is interesting.

*Note – 100, not 101. drewbearsf doesn’t count because he only wants into my boxers.

I’m nothing short of totally flattered… (and sure, a little creeped out).

Sure, some say the blogging phenomena is true to the concept of journaling: documenting one’s own life for later visits, articulating your inner thoughts, a fleeting stab at immortality, (insert lofty ideal here).

Cyber self-spank is no fun unless you have an audience and apparently there’s a 200 eyes that like to check in regularly. It keeps me not posting.

The nicest thing you can ever do, for anyone is pay them attention.

Thank You “LJ Friends Of”.

urr.. I mean,… If I had a blog,…
