Okay, so I didn't post at all last week. Big deal. I had nothing to say anyway...
So since the week before last I am sure you think that there have been at least 3 things that have occurred. You are partially right. There have been more than three things, but, due to my lack of mental acuity, I will be hard pressed to remember 3.
Thing the First:
I had to drop someone off my friends list in Facebook
you ask with you mouth agape and knuckles on the floor. Firstly, The guy was someone who graduated the year before me from my high school in Alabama, and well, I am not quite sure what his take on Facebook
was all about. And secondly, You seem more troglodytic
than would have thought. "Mouth agape and knuckles on the floor,"
you should evolve enough to be ashamed of yourself.Anyhoo
... I feel that maybe I should mention my own Facebook etiquitte
. You see, to me, "friends" on Facebook
are the equivalent of people I might recognize on the street or have some passing knowledge of on the Internets. If I recognize the name and I get a friend invite, I will most likely accept. It is no skin off my back and typically It is something that doesn't really get in the way. Sure there are people in real life whom I have "friended
" in Facebook
yet don't want to EVER speak to face to face, but that is the beauty of Facebook
. It means absolutely nothing.
So, I am sure you are wondering why I would "defriend
" someone on Facebook
. Well, I didn't think I had any reason to do that until this guy. Now I know that I am not going to agree politically with everyone I have ever met in real life and digitally, and, furthermore, I am not some naif waif that thinks that all smart people think like I do. So it doesn't really bother me when FB
friends spout something political with which I don't necessarily agree. The issue is that this guy was using his status setting to link to internets
articles that agreed with his particular political viewpoints... about every 5 minutes. I just got tired of reading his status updates. That and he ate babies. Seeing as how I am currently in possession of a baby, I felt that I should not associate with him anymore, even this cursorily.Thing the Second:
We got new family portraits done. That is for Digital Thursday
Thing the Third:
Today was Little Man's first day of the Kindergarten. It was a rough day on Mama and Papa, but Little Man did not seem any worse for the wear. He is kind of a cold fish that way. No one can prepare you as a parent for the conflicting emotions that occur whenever there is a threshold event in your child's life. Needless to say, Mama and Papa are both very proud of how far Little Man has come, but we are also devastatingly aware that he is no longer our baby boy.
To recap:Disney bought out Marvel Comics
Don't know whether the Mouse owning Spiderman
is a good thing or a bad thing
I think these temporary breaks from the blog are good
I am still jobless, but at least I have some small contract work to keep me moving
I will divulge more about that as the product gets stronger
But not until then...
