Facebook Is The New Black

I feel like I am 16 again. I am obsessed, in the same way I was with the movie Weird Science, Chad Allen and waiting for boys to call me.
I am addicted. Just like how I am addicted to chapstick, shoes and waiting for boys to call me.

I heart facebook.
I love finding all my long lost friends from high school.
I even made a facebook page for my husband, who has no interest in it at all, but I want him to join in the fun. It amazes me he has virtually no list of people from his past he would like to be back in contact with or at the least, view pictures of and see if they got fat. Or bald!
Conform to all of the facebook addicts man!

I may weigh more than I did in high school but I did not go bald! Huge plus in my book.
So tell me I am not the only one addicted to finding old friends and lovers? Or at least just lie to me.


  1. I got my husband to sign up for Facebook, too, and then I checked on him awhile ago and the dude has way more friends then I do! I was shocked, but then he admitted he doesn't know who most of them are. They are just people he's had to 'friend' in order to play some of the game applications! He is so totally addicted to it!

    I'd be careful if I were you!

    My sister's now ex-husband found his old high school flame through Facebook. Two marriages (my sister's was 20 years, the other marriage was about the same) and six kids -- all under the age of 18, two in grade school -- were destroyed.

  3. Ok, I think I need to check out this Facebook phenomena - especially since I have a soon to be teenager and I should know my way around. Who knows, though, in the next year or two, it will be something else I will have to catch up on!

    I graduated from HS over 22 years ago and at my 20 year reunion, almost all of the "cute" guys were FAT and BALD. Most of the women, however, looked great and we were thankful we didn't marry one of those fat, bald guys who was the love of our life 20 years ago!

  4. The town I grew up in was technologically challenged. Very few kids used a computer at all. And the high schools merged with others, so technically my high school is gone, which makes it even harder to stalk, er I mean find people.

  5. I actually just spent the entire day at pumpkin farm yesterday with some old highschool friends in their families all because of facebook. I love it!

  6. Facebook is fun for spying on people :)

  7. This is where you've been. If I join will you poke me? Is that a good thing?

  8. steenky, I will poke you any day! Join and be my friiiieeeendd!

  9. I don't know if you read my post called "100", but Sonya Whitlow (from 3rd Grade) just found me on Facebook. Eeeeeeeek!

  10. I heart facebook!! I could spend days on it. My husband is also on and to address anonymous' comments, he appears to not be leaving me anytime soon. :)
    I'm sure there is some of that that goes on as there is anywhere, I've just found it to be a great way to connect with old friends and keep in touch with my current friends across the county.
    Let's convinvce Steenky to join and we'll all poke her. :)

  11. I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who made a Facebook page for my husband as well as myself. He has little interest, but I like learning about his life - and friends - from before I knew him. And I love reconnecting with old friends :-)

  12. I will heed your warning, anonymous.

  13. I'm on, and I'm friends with DD (TKO) on there, and Dennis from Imps Playground. I have found family members from Puerto Rico that I haven't seen or spoken to in more than ten years, and high school friends that I actually liked. (I was very anti social, lol!)
    Look me up, I don't know what to give you though...besides my name...
