    Facebook

    Does anyone here have the few friends on Facebook that think they need to share their deep personal life drama in the form of status updates. Usually when I update mine the most personal I get is, 'watching tv'. I just think it is a bit silly to broadcast how turbulent your love life is or stuff like that.

    I usually get reprimanded for mine. Who cares if I'm calling the girl outside Shamu when she's tanning? The truth hurts!

    Do what I do. Just copy their facebook status for about a month. They'll stop.

    Re: Facebook

    My status gets updated maybe once a week at most. Did update it today, though - said "...took a long walk today - too bad I couldn't find the short pier...:


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    You're lucky I don't sit on you.

    The only thing worse would be CycloneErik doing so.

    Re: Facebook

    Totally amused by the status updates I see there.

    "**** all of you, I hate you".

    "My life sucks"

    "Worst day ever"

    "All you ******* are just jealous"

    etc.

    And of course, all that drama is always the fault of someone else. Ha!

    Same for the status updates and bulletins on myspace.

    Fortunately I just use it for business and that's it.

    The bolded one is a good example of how people either need to take out the "is," or format it like a sentence. You'll also see:

    "XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX is Go Vikings!"

    Also - when did it become acceptable to post a picture you took of yourself in the john???

    "is"....is no longer part of the standard facebook status from what I can tell, but that always amused me too.

    I didn't think so, either - which means that I think some people type it back in?!?

    They actually removed the "is" from the status. Now it just says "XXXXXXXXX YYYYYYYYYYY _____________________."
