Facebook is eating my brain

seriously, I think my lack of blogging coincided pretty closely with getting a facebook account, it's AMAZING how hard it is to actually get myself to think for five minutes about an interesting concept, and come up with something to say about it.

It's so much easier to just "update my status" and I get so much more feedback, you know?

It's pretty sad.

Like junkfood for the electronic soul.

I dreamt last night that a blogger I'm facebook friends with published a link to a blogpost of theirs, and I tried to write this long, elaborate response in the facebook comments section and then I remember that I HAD A BLOG.

It was kind of scary. So I thought I'd check back in here, and see if I can think of something worthwhile to say.

I also dreamt I was in love with a guy I barely knew in high school, who I now know to be gay (like me, more or less) - he liked me back, but we kept both saying, "but wait, we're gay!"

I don't KNOW what the answer to that one is

I can relate. So can a few others I know--about the blogging vs. Facebook thing, that is.

And I have a friend who identifies as lesbian but is in a straight marriage.

Go figure.

I've liked my first week without FB, followed by a weekend of FB. So far, anyway. And I do miss your perspective that used to appear more regularly on blogs, but hey, I get the FB FMS too (Fear of Missing Something).
