Seriously? Is It Just Me…

Posts Tagged ‘facebook

It’s my belief that every wise woman should take the time to reflect upon her life and acknowledge any life lessons she has learned. With it being the last day of 2008, it only seems appropriate that I blog about the top 5 things I learned this past year.

1. “Sinners Have Souls Too!” including me and Kim. And who would have thought that we would have found a cool church that embraced us for who we are with no judgments. Yea God!

2. Planning a wedding takes a lot of work. And if you aren’t careful you can lose months of your life in the process. I’m pretty sure we had a summer this past year, but we spent most of it helping plan the Fabulous Wedding of my sister.

3. I’m NOT a fan of all God’s creatures. Actually, I already knew this but after facing iguanas in Aruba and then maggots in my closet, I can without a doubt now add these two critters to my already long list. 

4. History Ain’t So Bad After All, especially when you have a hand in it. What a wonderful and memorable experience it was to watch the USA elect their first black president. I heart Obama!

5. Face to face interaction is essential to any relationship. Look, I’m all for technology – I love Facebook, can’t go anywhere without my iPhone, enjoy telling stories on our blog, and would be lost without email or texting. But at the end of the day, I need face time, touch time and talk time with the people in my life, and if a man can’t give me that he’s not the one for me. Besides, I’m not quite ready to embrace cybersex.

Just like any year, 2008 had its ups and its downs, but it turned out to be a good personal growth year. However, I’m looking forward to the new year – Everything’s FINE in OH-9!

Happy New Year Everyone…Seriously!


OK – a few weeks ago Mika and I were talking about the different people that we had added as “friends” on FACEBOOK – some we did not really want to add but felt obligated to add anyway – I told her “just add them and you can delete them in a few weeks and they will not know the difference” – little did I know that I would be “burned” in the same manner.

I have an “ex” who lives in St. Pete Beach – we briefly dated but have stayed friends over divorces, different couplings, job changes, etc. We became friends on facebook a few mos. ago. Every  now and then he would post something a bit “dirty” and I would delete it – but no big deal.

Well last week I went to wish him a “merry x-mas” on facebook and he was not listed as a “friend”. I was like WTF – I immediately emailed him to uncover the mystery. Well Paulie married a new wife within the last year and she made him delete anyone that he had been “intimate” with as being his friend on FACEBOOK…I was like “well, you must have lost half your friends – you perv”

This is weird for me – i understand why she would do that – even though i have absolutely “NO INTEREST” – (if I did, I would still be with him – whatever) – but none of my business….just feels weird to be shunned like that (or slapped with silence as they say on The Office). I guess I now know how it feels and need to rethink my Facebook etiquette….Seriously!
