Just deactivated my account a few minutes ago. It feels freeing. I know there's a risk that old friends now have no way of getting in touch with me, but they haven't exactly done so over Facebook yet and I can't think of anyone I need to contact that I can't reach any other way.

So far, it feels good. I never spent much time on it, so I'm not exactly clearing out an addiction, but it's good to know that I can deactivate that account.

I tend to miss people I used to be close to, but have now moved away from and facebook is the best way for me to speak with others. I'm not a huge phone person, and don't use AIM anymore, so it lets me message them when I have time and keep in touch from a distance. Just the right amount of space, but close enough to reach out and support or celebrate big events if needed. Saying all that, I do have those people which I am close to that I see on a more regular basis and I don't really fb much with them. I tend to text them more regularly instead. I hope, as a culture, we continue to keep close friends and everything doesn't become fb only. It's all about balance.

So horrific, it justifies a necro:
ot a little visit from Tamsin at 2:15am. Came into my room and asked for milk. I lifted her into the bed. I told her we had no milk left and to go to sleep. Couple of mins later she said i want toast then. I said we had no bread. Few mins later she said she was going back to her bed and on the way she turned back and said we got milk in Tesco... Remember mummy... What can you say to that. So i got her milk and a biscuit(yes a biscuit is bad but no chance im making toast). So lesson learned. I can no longer try to fool wee Tammy. Way too clever for me. I went in to check on her and she is lying having her wee feast quite happy. She gave me the biggest smile and said " love you mummy". My heart melted... Love you too Tamsin.xxx
I hate you both.

One of my friends was wondering the other day, if you just replied to shit like this with 'So?', how long would it take you to be completely unfriended.

Perfect response to the wee feast.

One of the best things about facebook is this site.

Ha! That site is blocked when you're on the corporate wifi of the Hockey Hall of Fame here in Toronto.

The black opps did they kill PD knowing she was about to open her private diary on CW and his way of life . The white Fiat was never found that's question ?

Wow. So many things wrong with that, even if you keep the intended message and content separate.

I'm sorry for the necro but this one has been festering away at me for days. It's like a huge scab I can't leave alone.
I return to it time and time again. Horrified but fascinated.

So Jesus, rather than intervene, watches the tragedy from the couch with his feet up. And for this we're to sook his boaby? What a cunt. Thinly-veiled threats. Coward.

Worryingly enough, my aunt posted this. Annoyingly, then so did almost every other older relative I have pretty much immediately which meant my news feed was full of this horror.

That kind of crap just makes me less likely to post. Not that I was ever going to repost any chain-bullshit (that's not about some form of zombie awareness) anyway.
