FACEBOOK OR IS IT FISHBOWL?

I had a page on Facebook for about three days. Facebook a great place for people who want to renew acquaintances. Or to tell the world about themselves. Or to let everyone know what they're doing.

Facebook is more like a Fishbowl - - - your life is transparent for everyone to see. They should really change the name.

The "let everyone know what they're doing" when or before you do it part is what made me quit Facebook.

I wanted to makeup and write stupid things about what I was doing. So in the interest of not making Bob seem more mentally disturbed than he already is I quit Facebook. You see, not everyone understands or appreciates my kind of humor. That would also include Wifey.





I won't go into what I wanted to write on the "what are you doing" portion of Facebook. If you've followed this blog for a while you already know what would have been authored by Bob.

And another thing . . . I like to create. Part of being creative for me is to write. I've always been a writer albeit amateur, stupid, inappropriate, offensive, etc.

I started writing as a kid. One of my first endeavors as an author was to write 100 times on the blackboard, "I will not go into the girl's bathroom."

I got pretty good at writing things 100 times on the blackboard.

Later on I wrote for the high school newspaper. And in high school I had to write 100 times, "I will stay out of the girl's locker room." That was also worth a five day suspension from school all because my group of friends, knowing that I would do most anything, double dog dared me to run through the girl's locker room. And I did. Ah, those were the days (I think).....

Like I said, I can write anything 100 times with no sweat.

I just couldn't find a place in Facebook where I could write things 100 times. So I quit.

And I couldn't be happier.

1. I will never ever have a Facebook page.
2. I will never ever have a Facebook page.
3. I will never ever have a Facebook page.
4. . . . . . . .

It's so true it's like crack and I must admit I do use occassionaly (facebook not crack) :) For someone who has friends across the globe though..it makes it REALLY easy to keep in touch with people and cuts out all the emails and stuff. You're right though..crack is wack stay way!

It is a shame though...I would love to see more pics of you and the family. And there are some cool games you can play...like food fling.

Bob, if you ever restart a page...let me know and we will look each other up!

Shelly: Definitely. I can see the benefits of Facebook for a lot of people. I'm just not one of them.

Fox: I'll do just that. Just don't hold your breath.

When Shells says she's on FB "occasionally" she really means ALL THE TIME!! Ask her about the time they cancelled her FB account! HAHAHAHA!!!!

And I can just see your status update: Bob is DOING IT IN THE BUTT! ;-)
