Not sure what is going on with Facebook. Maybe its summer and people are going on vacation and busy at home with the kids being out of school. But it seems like only a handful of my friends are posting on there any more.
I sure hope its not because everyone is getting bored with Facebook and looking for something else to be a time suck. I like Facebook a lot, although it has taken me a while to figure out how to control the asshats and get rid of the drama queens. I want to use it to keep in touch with family and friends, share photos and have a few laughs. That’s what I get out of Facebook anyway. Without Facebook I guess we’ll all have to go back to sending out group emails.
Someone told me I was rude to my cousin on facebook. They don’t even fucking know me and I wasn’t even talking to them. I told them to fuck off. Yes, I can be rude when you push the wrong buttons.
There was a cute saying shared by one of my Facebook friends. It says that a word to wise is a waste of time. If they are wise, they don’t need any advice. It’s the stupid ones who need the advice, and they are the least likely ones to accept it and put it to good use.
I think that is very true, although you would probably have a hard time finding anyone who would actually admit to being stupid. Yet I see stupid people all day long. They are all around us – the ones texting while driving. The ones listening to their iPods with earbuds in their ears while driving. The ones posting embarrassing photos of themselves on Facebook. The ones sexting on company issued cell phones and laptops. The ones wearing ridiculous clothing at WalMart. It is amazing to me how many stupid people are really out there.
It seems like Facebook has been threatening people with changing to the new Timeline format since around Christmas. But there are still a lot of people on my Friend’s List who have not changed over yet. Does anyone know the actual forced transition date? I had heard it was the first of March, but that has not turned out to be true.
So many people are bitching and complaining about the new Timeline – I don’t know what their problem is. I’m happy to see the change and I love trying new things. I am shocked to realize that so many of my friends are just fuddy duddies who live their lives in a big rut and resist anything new or exciting. I am starting to question whether I should even keep them as friends?
Somehow I came across a Facebook group for people who use crockpots. I thought that was interesting, that so many people use crockpots and that they are such a subculture of the cooking world that they felt they needed a Facebook page to enhance their activtities.
So, I liked their page and checked out some of the recipes that were linked to the Facebook page. I even tried two of them – and they turned out great! But I have to admit that I am not a crockpot fanatic. It is just one more tool in my kitchen that is at my disposal for when I want to fix something that cooks slowly and makes the whole house smell wonderful when I walk in the door, tired and hungry.
