After many months of resisting, I finally gave in and started a Facebook account two days ago. It is, admittedly, infinitely better than MySpace, which I absolutely hate. As I’ve said before, I have a pretty speedy computer, but if your MySpace profile brings my machine to a screeching halt trying to render 7 YouTube videos on top of your stupid unicorn full-screen image while playing some lame-ass Josh Groban song that launches in an external application — maybe you can slim it down a hair. Facebook also lacks the MySpace spam. (Thanks for the friend invite, LicketySlit, but I’m going to decline, although I’m sure your webcam is “hot,” as promised.) So, if you have a Facebook account, find me and let’s be “friends.”
AEJ and I went to the Rose Parade yesterday. It was fun, and we had great seats, but some of the protesters confused me a little. This was either two separate groups, one a single group that was definitely getting ahead of itself. Let’s elect him first, people.
