June 27, 2010

It has been more than a year since I last posted here. In that time, my residence and job title have not changed, although my employer's payroll office has moved twice in that time. Michael Jackson is still dead. So are President Obama's sky-high approval ratings.

This may be my main online outlet to the world since I decided to get rid of my MySpace and Facebook accounts. It is sad that in this day and age that one should determine their ability to make friends by how many "friends" they have on Facebook. I had at most 42 "friends" on Facebook, and nearly half of those were relatives that I mistakenly advised to join the service. I actually helped create 3 Facebook profiles and assisted in adding photos and comments to 3 other profiles. But maybe Aunt Nancy and Uncle Rodger were right- who wants to post all that info online and allow anyone with internet access to read it?

And who in real life has over 100 friends? Or, in the case of a certain estranged niece and a former friend from New Jersey, over 500 friends? I've never had that many friends- and thanks to a dispute with someone I thought was my best friend, I noticed a lot of people "unfriending" me on Facebook. But then, I hated the idea of cliques in high school (which for me thankfully ended over 20 years ago), and I don't care for them now at age 38.
