I realized this week that I hadn't been to my blogger home in a couple of weeks!
Why you ask?
Yes. *hangs head* I have joined the cult that is Facebook.
I resisted because really--why would I join all the lemmings that have flung themselves off the blog cliff into Facebook land?
I was snobby. I turned my nose at Facebook lemmings heartily refusing to even think about joining.
Then. It happened.
My brother was notified by gradeschool classmates of mine who were seeking me out.
Then, college friends hounded me with their offers of "join facebook and see how we all look like now!" requests.
And? Really. The allure to see what everyone looks like after 30 years was too tempting to resist.
So. I joined.
"Just to see the pictures and then I'd delete my account" I assured myself.
Then I got game requests from friends whom I had added so I could see their pictures.
I clicked on one game. An amusing little game called FARMVILLE.
You can plant and grow your crops...buy or receive animals from other farming friends, buy houses...
Suddenly I found myself logging in compulsively to see how my crops were growing. Or if someone had found a stray animal on their farm that I could adopt for my farm.
Then...the fish tank game invites came and I thought...well...I'll join that game and feed my fish while waiting for my crops to grow...
3 fish tanks, a Kats Chow Cafe, a farm, a Zoo a pet at petville that is like a virtual Hello kitty who's house you can decorate...and another pet app where I feed and care for 4 cats...oh and Vampire wars and some sort of Harry Potter Wizard war game later and....
Facebook now owns my soul.
What little time I do have left is spent working and planning mega Christmas parties.
One which is tonight at our home. It's Christmas Ship party time!!
And tomorrow is our work Christmas party which I've been working along side my boss in helping arrange and organize as well as zooming out and gathering swell door prizes. YAY!
I've been trying to take it easy as I'm still getting over the pneumonia plague but really people, I ain't got time to lay around!
Speaking of...*peers at my watch* I gotta run. My fish on Fishville need feeding or they'll go belly up.
Oh sure. Mock me! But I'm tellin' you, I've invested time and click energy feeding those bastards so I can harvest them for experience points and gold...so I can buy more fish which I can feed and clean up after so I can harvest them for experience points and gold which then I can buy more fish so I can...
Someone. Help me!
and by help? I mean join Facebook so you can be my neighbor so I can expand my farm so I can grow more crops and get more experience points and...
