the first step is admitting you have a problem

Yesterday at work, people were talking about giving up facebook for Lent. I found that odd. How does that really show your devotion to anything but the internet? Does God seriously care about your social networking willpower skills? I also thought: I hope not because there's no way I'm quitting. Sorry God.

Then, early this morning, I was awakened with a terrible thought. "Crap. What if I'm one of those obnoxious people who comments on everyone's facebook and blog? Is that ME?"

Truth be told: Yes. That's me.

I can't help it. I just love all of you. I like to read your blog and share my thoughts. I like to see your status updates and comment on your pictures. Your lives make me happy. Your posts makes me think. Your pictures make me smile. I hope you don't think I'm stalking you. I'm just a girl who spends her nights with a cat and friends from cable tv.

Stalker? Spinster? Whatever. Call me what you want. Just be glad I'm not tweeting.

Personally, I feel unloved. Can you step up the stalking?

I love the comments too!!

I adore the internet, and I'm really happy with the way that Facebook has helped me keep in better contact with my friends and my family.

When you have the random details at your fingertips, it makes the conversations much more meaningful and enjoyable when you sit down to reconnect or catch up.

Keep the comments comin' chica!!

I for one love it when I get comments from you or anyone else for that matter. Its hard to try to keep up with friends when we all live far apart. Thank goodness for the internet and FB for making it easier to see the ones you love on a daily basis!
