Facebook Explosion

I must say, I am always game for signing onto the next internet fad (Friendster, MySpace, Vimeo, etc.) but this Facebook thing has really exploded recently. I went to dinner tonight with Amy and we were talking about how many people have added us as friends that we knew from back in high school. It's insane. It's like a virtual reunion but of all different grades. I have to admit that I like it. I'm such a voyeur that this is fun to see what folks are up to even if I didn't know them very well back then. It's neat to see who's married, who has kids, who does what in their careers. So Panas folk, keep the friend requests coming... I know I'm not as on point as Row with my ol' memory but I never forget a face (unless you've gotten all bald and tan or toothless and hairy). Row, that was not a dig at you.....



My new thing today was answering my cell phone at my freelance job under my desk so no one else would see me talking. i felt like i was one of those hostages in a bank robbery film where they didn't quite see me yet so I was calling for help. anyway, it's so damn quiet in there and no one else seems to have any conversations with anyone that i just couldn't be like, "Hey Amy, so where are we meeting for supper?" I do wish there was water cooler chatter, but nada. All those cute boys and everyone seems to be actually working. What's up with that? Amy suggested that I just start blasting Howard Stern from my desktop and see what the kids' reactions are. I think I may try that. I'll let you know what transpires...

I'm a real sport and can take it. For the record, I'm not tan but bald. Hairy elsewhere but def not toothless...just yet.

Next time, take a picture of yourself talking under the desk. I had a laugh visualizing it.

Uh, hello. I was already under the desk talking on my cell, I hardly think I'd embarrass myself further by setting up my camera on my seat to snap a shot. Sheesh.
