|Unrelated picture I posted on FB...I've been mourning the days when I could wear/look acceptable in jeans. Unfortunately that night I forgot a status update: "Night with Garth Brooks and the hubby at the Wynn...doesn't get much better than that!!!!"|
"That is annoying. But it's even more annoying that you read that blog."
True, so true.
Tod also says tabloid magazines and blogs are like girl porn. Which I also agree with...while they're not necessarily filthy or full of distasteful images, they do waste my time, they do leave me feeling worse than before (how many blogs have you been referred to about a couple who lost their baby/toddler/four year old in an accidental drowning/choking/car accident?) but I always come back for more. Why WHY WHYYYYYY?
I realize many of us are voyeurs by nature and want glimpses into others' lives. Which is why Facebook/blog "stalking" makes even less sense...they do not represent reality. They're glossed over or sometimes completely fabricated versions of a person's existence.
I'm thinking about quitting Facebook for good. Who's with me? Think of all the books we'll read, the laundry we'll fold, the board games we'll play with our kids and the new recipes we can try...or we can complain about it a lot and act like we're better than it then spend another hour browsing people's photo albums...either way.
I'd say more but I need to upload this blog post to Facebook.
