    “Facebook is vaguely evil” made me laugh the most

  2. just1beth says:

    Facebook=evil-hahahhahaahaha!! So true! I can NOT stop myself from checking it 24/7, and checking my “friends” pages. Even though I KNOW there are no updates!! Why do insist on doing it?? It is like heroin. Or, more specifically, how I imagine heroin to be.
    And are you psychic? Because I could really use your services, if so…

  3. Roger "Hank" Sciorsci says:

    Sheila try our old favorite Queen’s ” Don’t Stop Me Now” in the rotation and you just might remember how unstoppable you are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. red says:

    Oh my GOD Hank just commented on my blog. I am freaking out!!

  5. red says:

    Yeah, I went down the rabbit hole on Facebook this morning and encountered some photos of a high school play – starring my main flame from Chicago when he was in high school – and he was so ADORABLE as a 16 year old kid … I haven’t spoken to him in 6 years but suddenly I was feeling all fond and mushy and it is totally EVIL.

    Hank – how ’bout “I love to singa … I love the moon-a and the June-a …”

  7. Alli says:

    Facebook became so evil I had to set it to email me when things happen. It was the only way I’d ever get anything done.

  8. red says:

    Beth – I am not consistently psychic but when I AM psychic it borders on the truly mysterious, involving time-travel and ESP at long distances. Today was a really freaky example (I’ll tell you about it when I see you)

    Sadly, I CANNOT do it on command. I wish I could, dammit. I could use it too.

  9. Bud says:

    If you think “Facebook is vaguely evil,” imagine its mobile application combined with an iPhone. The latter is an EXPLICITLY evil addictive device (READ: how many times a day do YOU check for new, free apps?), exquisitely beautiful in its utility. If I had not deleted Facebook from my iPhone, I’d have a johnson to end all johnsons.

  10. red says:


    I love how we all feel the same way.

    I’m also at the point where I’m ANGRY when a friend isn’t on Facebook.

    Like, Sheila, what is your problem?

  11. mere says:

    I really want to know how you became Archie Bunker.

  12. red says:

    Meredith, at one point I was shouting, “THIS IS AMERICA. LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT. YOU DON’T LIKE IT? GO AWAY.”


    It was awesome!

  13. red says:

    Alex was in complete agreement, egging me on. I couldn’t stop.

  14. ricki says:

    Ah. I had a mental image of you going, “Stifle yourself, Edith!” Guess I was wrong there.

  15. red says:

    No, I was ranting at the general stupidity of everyone except myself.

    It was fun. I need to do that more often!

  16. just1beth says:

    Um, were you “going Archie” at J???? And, don’t forget the cookie party at Jen and Leo’s on Saturday night. The best damn Christmas cookie swap around. Cookies are not required to be brought- but you can take as much as you want home. And there is a TON of good food- and plenty to drink.

  17. Carm says:

    I love these! I agree the Facebook one is terrific. They just deleted my friend’s account. Censorship. Censorship. Censorship. The funny thing is he had very little on his page (just joined the wrong sorts of groups, I think!) and mostly used Facebook for playing Scrabble.
