Yo ho ho and a facebook?


Tags: , ,
First, comparing Talk Like a Pirate Day last year to this year, I must say I am disappointed by the lack of pirate memes on the flist today. It truly is sad. I looked back at my meme post from last year and tried to find a new one. Name generators are always fun, right?

My pirate name is:
Mad Ethel Bonney

Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. You can be a little bit unpredictable, but a pirate's life is far from full of certainties, so that fits in pretty well. Arr!
Get your own pirate name from piratequiz.com.

In other news, I finally gave in to the pressure and created a facebook account today. Now I have just one question: what precisely is one supposed to do with a facebook?
Can I be a pirate and a ninja?

Mr Bracknell explained it to me thus: it's like collecting stickers as a kid, but with friends. There's no point, you just do it because they're there.....

Did that explanation work for you?

It did make me feel a bit better about the whole thing, as it is largely pointless, and up until then, I thought I was missing something.... All I ever do on it is send people virtual gifts. Oh, and there's Catbook. If you've got my real name (if not, Tater has me friended and I don't mind if she passes it on), look me up and I'll send you a hatching egg gift :D. Seriously, that's as good as it gets....

I'm glad I'm not the only one that didn't quite get this whole thing. Basically I'm just thinking too much (typical) and there isn't anything to get?

I've got your name but I also think I saw something from you on Tater's wall. I'll check again and try friending that way.

Hatching eggs, huh?

Facebook

One stalks old friends from elementary school/middle school/high school, stalks students you TA for, and join groups about how Bret Michaels is not a douche or all your friends are getting married and you're just getting drunk.

Actually, I like it better than MySpace.

Re: Facebook

This could be fun or just another way to procrastinate. Somehow procrastination and fun aren't always the same thing. Like those times when cleaning the bathroom sounds better than doing homework.

I like anything up to an including a lobotomy better than I like mySpace.

Re: Facebook

Facebook's a very good procrastination tool - I can't even tell you how often I've scanned the site just to kill time. But I tend to like it, because it's enjoyable, and I'm nosey.

Re: Facebook

I'm up for anything that will kill time.

I have a feeling the more I play around, the more this think will grow on me.

You should be my friend on facebook. Which will be really exciting because I never do anything on facebook. Ever! Woo hoo.

I was told I'm supposed to collect facebook friends like stickers so, friending would be good. Some of my other friends have me doing this rate friend thing. You should get in on that. If you are insane anyway.
