My blog is boring me these days. I'll have to think of something else to talk about. Here is what's not boring me these days: Facebook. Yes, it was only three short months ago that I declared myself to be over social networking sites. That's ok - I'm a big girl, I can admit I was wrong.
Here are some of the things I've done on Facebook in the last 48 hours:
1. Guessed songs in a christmas show friend's song lyric quiz. Ok, three friends' such quizzes. They're kind of sweeping the nation, or the nation of my D.C.-area music-nerd friends.
2. Been high-fived by J.Po; bought a drink in return.
3. Pwned Spice after she used the force on me. And threw a fish at me. I couldn't just stand there and take it.
4. Made moves in three different Scrabble games, against N.Lu, K619, and a guy I interned with at a newspaper in 2002. (N.Lu and K619 are totally kicking my butt; the guy is my only hope for winning a game.)
5. Posted a link to my work blog. (Know how to find my work blog? We put up a totally funny post the other day. Go read it.)
6. Carried on a "wall" conversation with Miss Shirley about how my friends think I'm punctual and likely to succeed.
7. Compared my friends. (Who's more likely to succeed? who would I rather marry? who has a better profile picture?)
8. Carried on a wall conversation with one of the teens in the Christmas show about how it's cool that all us big nerds find each other at the Christmas show.
9. Played part of a Traveler IQ Challenge game.
10. Watched a video of a bunch of us singing last night at a bar after rehearsal.
...and so on. I remember reading in a story after Friendster fell apart that the problem was, they let you build this great network and then they had nothing for you to do with it. And I thought that was weird - I mean, isn't the fun part just finding old friends? What would you really do with an online social network?
I think I know now.
