I've tried and quit Friendster and MySpace. I swore I wouldn't be sucked into Facebook. Guess what. I lied to myself. I totally joined on Monday. Not only have I joined, but I have immediately become addicted. In less than 48 hours I have acquired 79 friends. Real friends. People I'm actually glad to be in contact with! I've used their chat system to talk to a lady I used to work and live with and for whose kids I was a nanny. I've made my move on a game of Scrabble BFF invited me to. I've found out that my wedding DJ did indeed play "We don't have to take our clothes off" during the garter toss only we couldn't hear it over the roar of people laughing at Husband with his swim cap, goggles and mouthguard get up. I've solved the mystery of who gave us the red tea kettle since Target goofed up and didn't include a card. I'm officially obsessed.
MORAL OF THAT STORY: Don't knock it 'til you've tried it.
