The Plunge

Ahhhhh...I'm falling....

I've avoided the whole MySpace / Facebook universe for months and months, knowing the scent of a timesuck when I smell it. Well, this past weekend I took a teeny-tiny step in and OMG, I could not have even imagined what a humungous monstrous gargantuan potential timesuck it is. As my family can verify, at one point this weekend I actually had to turn and run away from the computer to save myself. It's so addictive!

I write this because, in my wanderings around the Facebook world, I have probably sent out all sorts of friend messages not totally understanding what I was doing and what the ramifications would be. I can be clueless that way sometimes. So I apologize to any of you theater folks out there who get something Facebook related from me and wonder what the heck I'm up to. I'm just fumbling around trying to figure it out. Thanks for your patience...

It is an incredibly addictive thing!!!! It's fun, though. But a huge timesuck.
You will absolutely find yourself checking it several times a day, if not more!!!
Have fun!!

Fortunately (?!?!) Facebook is blocked at my work. Apparently the minders of the Internet here know just how addicting it can be!

I feel your pain Dave! I joined Facebook about 3 weeks ago and 2 seconds later I had 5000 friends and was being superpoked by flying cows. I had no idea that everything I said went on some wall and that I could save the earth by giving someone a virtual lily plant!

Good luck man!
