    ... has joined.

    I feel like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer on there. When I first signed up, I've got friend requests coming at me from all angles. How in the hell did Facebook know I knew these people without putting any info in other than my e-mail? It wasn't even my regular e-mail either, yet it knew all.

    It's a whole new world. My sense of shock, awe and total bewilderment at this site is not unlike what I think Queen Victoria might feel like if she was re-animated and taken to a modern city, where she saw a penis cake in an adult bakery.

    I wrote that on my Facebook page and some longtime friends who hadn't been in touch for a while were surprised I'd make a penis reference like that just as a matter of course. Ruh-oh. Looks like I'd better tone down the SJ on my Facebook.

    Your next act should be to post a link to the MLB clip of your home run fail. :)

    Just spent an hour catching up on the thing - had Facebook friend requests from all sorts of folks who I'd been out of touch with - thing is, I feel like a bad "friend" for not keeping up on the thing, and it's even worse posting something and getting seven or eight or 12 e-mails from people. I'm still trying to figure out how I'm friends with some of the people on my list.

    Nope. There are still people behind you.

    I have a bunch of friends who haven't joined and have no interest for a variety of reasons -- not wanting women they know keeping tabs on them through it, is reason number one. It also may be an age thing. I don't feel old, but I am suddenly in that 40ish age range.

    A guy I work with will go on Facebook when hell freezes over, thaws out, then freezes over again. And then the Nationals will have to win the World Series (sorry Moddy!)

    I am on but haven't updated in like four months. My kids at the high school keep adding me as a friend. After repeated attempts on explaining why its a bad idea for me to be their "friend" I gave up. Meantime, I keep getting friend requests from all type of people I forgot I even knew.

    I'm not on. I'm convinced Facebook is what George Orwell warned us about. :D
