Yadda yadda

So I've been on Facebook way too much recently attempting to craft cutesy retorts, post family pics from here to timbucktoo, and play junior detective and locate colleagues from six jobs ago. The social networking phenomenon continues. One can only wonder what life will be like ten years from now? Maybe we will be keeping tallying of new friends we meet outside the Internet as opposed to old friends we find on The Net. This would be significantly more challenging......... especially for R.E. Dad.

OK, I'm wondering why on all these American reality talent shows is the British judge the only one who can be honest and tell it like it really is? Is this why we have TWO British judges on "America's Got Talent?" Can't Americans be critical of other Americans? To me this is a slap in the face of ALL Americans to have the Brits critique our national talent shows. The U.S. population is 5x that of the U.K. Would you find American judges on British, Chinese or Australian talent shows? Heck NO, mate.

So did President Obama really believe that a last minute flight across the pond to plead his case for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics could sway the committee? I believe the Brazilian president had been campaigning, selling, pleading and begging the olympic committee to give Rio the nod for well over a year. Mr. President, please get back to more pressing issues like the economy or Iran.

Baseball playoffs are coming this week! I absolutely love this time of year. The cool crisp autumn air combined with the win or go home intensity being played out in eight major league cities is something to behold. In baseball and unlike the NBA, any team including a Wild Card can run the table and grab the glory. Go Cardinals!

Back to Facebook....has anyone ever been "de-friended?" I actually was and can't figure out why? I mean I have blocked a few people who wanted me to be their friend, but why why why did someone strike me off their list? Turns out after hours of analysis after realizing that my friend count had decreased, the person who de-friended me was someone I'd gone to high school with and knew for many years prior to this. Could it have been this blog, my political views, my cyber breath or was it an accident? I need to know. Yadda yadda. To be continued.....

Who was it, who was it..."I" got to know.

Well, FB isn't perfect, it has serious issues sometimes, and maybe that person doesn't know you were "de-friended". It actually happened to me with someone who invited me, and I eventually realized I wasn't seeing her feeds anymore, and looked up her profile to find that she wasn't on my list anymore, so I sent her a friend request. She accepted, and said she has no idea what happened either. So it might not have been intentional.

scott - high school classmate..first name think "3's company"...last name think "famous tv cat" - aj I'm just too ADHD not to know if it was intentional or unintentional. There have certainly been times after a couple beers that I've wanted to start pairing down my 'friends' list :)

There was an American judge on last year's Australian Idol and they regularly had American guest judges on the X Factor (Idol in Britain).

I've de-friended a lot of people from high school. For me it was because I hadn't been in touch with them and that was intentional. I accepted friend requests out of politeness for a long time, but then one day I just decided that people that used to be assholes to me in high school weren't people I wanted in my life in any way. So I got rid of several people.

I'm not saying this is what happened in your case, but you asked the question!

It's definately not your cyber breath. Your post-wash keeps your breath all fresh and tingly.

I have a lot of ambivalence about numerous FB dilemmas. It's like high school all over again.

I have a FB account, but I only pull it up a couple of times a month. I find it too mundane and trivial. Why does someone always have to post something about being tired or on their way home? I don't care for that kind of update information.

I agree with Aunt J--I've had that happen to me a couple of times, with a couple of people I've known in real life. They, too, didn't realize I'd dropped off their friends list. I'm the one who realized it when I quit seeing their updates in the friend feed. Some little glitch in the system. I added them again, and they accepted. I wouldn't take it personally: )

Facebook is boring me already. It's a nice way to connect quickly and that's it. It's a one night stand!

phd in yogurtry said...

Don't know where you've been but you're missed -- also, I'm wanting to wish you and your family happy holidays! Best of 2010!
