If anyone needs me, I'll be on Facebook

My friends Sheila and Kim just joined Facebook. When I questioned them about it, curious, Sheila warned me to run in the other direction (while also dishing about all the people from our past who she found on the site). Kim urged me to join. I did. And it's the biggest time-sucking, gossipy high school train wreck that you simply can't look away from. It's a true guilty pleasure, completely eye-opening yet totally vapid at the same time. It's like bad reality TV that you sit on the couch and watch for hours.

Plus I'm a monster procrastinator, so with all the things going on in my life right now -- with all the last-minute errands I should be running, boxes I should be packing, resumes I should be sending, and tearful goodbyes I should be orchestrating -- it's been the perfect escape.

Seriously, the next time you find yourself hopelessly busy with real life, register on this thing and look me up. I'll be there...

I suppose it was a just a matter of time before you succumbed. You're weak Robyn, weak...=)

K. Snarky - You want to join SO BADLY I can practically feel your pride through this computer, fighting with your most basic human urges to learn more about all those twits you sat next to in high school.

I, on the other hand, have no such pride issues. :)

Jury's still out on what I think of FB. I will say this.....if it gets me re-connected with that hot kid from Villanova who was in my economics seminar, then it was definitely well worth it!

Whatever you do ... don't check out hulu.com.
Talk about procrastinating.

Robyn said...

Heather - Don't even tempt me. I've got no time. NO time.

Snarkster - See, if you were on FB I totally would have written "Happy Birthday" on your Wall today. But you're not. So you get no love.

My "Wall"??? Ah you hipsters with your lingo...I don't even understand what you are saying anymore Robyn. You've changed since joining FB...

Conolly wished me a Happy B-day, so my day was already complete. Thanks though...=)

I guess I haven't totally figured out FB. I'm not all that into it. Twitter, though, is a whole new obsession.

Kim said...

You're welcome.

Carcich said...

That's it...if Rob is in, I'm in.

Robyn said...

LOL. I'm waiting for my "friend" request...

Tara - Don't get me started on Twitter. I don't get the point of it at all.

What's Twitter?
