Remember that Beatles' song "we all live in a yellow submarine..... and our friends are all aboard, every one of them, live next door..." That's where I've been since Saturday. Sorry I haven't posted, or commented on other people's blogs, or READ other people's blogs, I caved on Saturday afternoon, and ever since have been floating around in this amazing place called Facebook.
Oh. My. Gosh. EVERYONE seems to be on there. I've been wondering and imagining futures for all of my high school friends, almost all of whom I'd lost touch with since the summer after high school, I even traveled down to the class reunion at 10 years against my better judgement, and only one or two of them were there. But FACEBOOK, I can see pictures, I can talk to them, everything. It's crazy. I told one of my friends it was like a big, virtual party -but without the annoying booze. I love it.
Then, along with all the old friends I was so excited to get back in touch with, all my new friends came along. This is so cool: live updates on everyone's daily lives, if you care to look. Also a lot of extended family members have pages that we probably wouldn't communicate with any other way. Are you on there? Come aboard! Waste hours of your life on trivia and fluff, but it's SO satisfying.
