Crazy Facebookery

I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook.

I like connecting with friends from my past, but I'm completely weirded out by the games and invitations that people send me. Who the hell has enough time in the day to accept all the water gun fights, Easter egg hunts, cocktails and quiz requests?! Currently sitting in my cue are:

  • 1 friend suggestion
  • 4 friend requests
  • 1 view stephen's hug request
  • 1 tweety bird mania request
  • 2 classmate requests
  • 3 growing up denver gifts
  • 2 what your name says invitations
  • 4 how well do you know invitations
  • 3 farm town requests
  • 1 james's birthday request
  • 8 pass a round invitations
  • 7 water gun fight! requests
  • 1 which female grease invitation
  • 2 which 80s song invitations
  • 3 easter egg hunt invitations
  • 3 cause invitations
  • 1 which jimmy buffett request
...and that's after having done an ass load of quizzes, shooters, pillow fights and "which one" invitations. I could probably pencil in a whole day each week just to do the requests on Facebook. Who created all this absurd craziness?

Why do I need to know that my Star Wars character is Princess Leia? WTF am I supposed to do with pretend drinks? If you're really my friend take me out and get me shit-faced! THAT'S a friend! If you want a pillow fight, invite me over for a real sleepover and we'll wail away with pillows all night. C'mon over to the pool and let's do a real water gun fight with super soakers. (You're going down!) If you want to give me a gift, I'd love a Coach bag, not faux farm animals. And if you have a Jimmy Buffett request, it had better come with real jello shooters and close-up seating for a real concert! Don't tease me on Facebook. I don't have that kind of time.

Its about time somebody said it, amen, indeed! Its gotten to the point where I don't even open my FB page any more ... too much pressure.

I'd like to honor your words of wisdom with ... a pretend drink and a fuzzy faux sheep.

I tend to ignore all of those silly requests...and I never send them to my friend either! I like the quizzes from time to time to pass the time when I'm

Mom said...

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
