My Constant Struggle with FB...God, Nose Jobs, and Birthdays

Sometimes I want to close my FB account down for good.

There's so much crap that comes across and, truthfully, I just don't give a shit about most of it.

Then something funny comes along, so I'm like, "okay, I'll stay on for another week."

I've never given a relationship so many second chances!

That's right...I just likened FB to a relationship...see?  I have issues!!!

Okay, I like God...I really do.  However, I find it unnecessary to constantly give him shout outs on FB.  Does he even have an account?  Oh, that and HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO CONCENTRATE ON YOUR "MESSAGE" WHEN THERE IS A QUOTATION ERROR THAT IS SO BLATANT RIGHT THERE IN YOUR SECOND WORD????  Seriously...I can't correct a grammatical error on a God Message, right?  That's just rude, right?

This is a shout-out to Marcia...because I know she loves these things.  Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of cancer, child abuse, sex predators, or any of the horrible things that people think we can eradicate on FB.  That being said, I also refuse to "give up" my status up to these messages for an hour...primarily because it will do no good, but secondarily because I'll probably get busy and that damn status will be up there for weeks...

This was written by a former student who has moved away from home.  I do keep in touch with several former students via FB and I question that decision sometimes.  However, when I come across a kid that I was worried about...that I knew was having a hard time...and he's finally found what makes him comfortable in life, it feels pretty damn good.  Not that I had anything to do with it, but just that he's realized that he doesn't have to be like everyone else and he can create his own path.  He lives in a pretty superficial place right now and this status made me laugh out loud...I love it!  This kept me on FB for another week!

Let's face birthday probably keeps me on FB for another 6 months rather than a few weeks...NOTHING is better than a FB birthday.  Did you know that I responded to each and every one of my birthday wishes this year...that's right...and for no good reason!  I just thought it was damn sweet that people would take a minute to wish me happy's the best! (either that, or I have no life)

Given my constant struggle with fairy tales (another post...can't believe I haven't written about this yet) and whether or not I want to introduce them to the Crazies, this post made me feel validated.  It's true...these "characters" are horrible examples of what we want to show to our children, yet we keep opening ourselves up to the same ethical debates...year after year.  This status made me realize that I wasn't alone in thinking this fairy tale stuff is just creating more work for us as parents!

What is your relationship with FB like?  
Evil?  Conflicted?  Loving?  Masochistic?
