Been a while

I've escaped for a moment to make sure I still have a blog account. It's here. I'm here. I've been kidnapped by Facebook and have been brainwashed into thinking and writing in two or three sentence blurts. It's wearing off a bit now and I miss catching up with my blogroll.

Why Facebook? All the nieces and nephews are on it and since they're in the early 20's, they don't mind having old Aunt Balou on their friends list. Why addicted? Not sure, but I thought this little girl said it better than I ever could...

Early twenties! I love you too! When I turn 30 can I be in my late twenties? I have a grandma that's been 39 and a half for 41 years now...I'm taking her idea and starting early. ;)

Balou said...

@Bill - Wise move.

@Sarah - All is well, just busy with work and FB and life in general.

@Renny - we're connected now

@Alicia - I was going with the average. From both sides of family, we have 15 nieces and nephews ranging from 14 to 32. All but two are on FB.

I'd like to call Facebook "The Dark Side," but it sure has made a lot of people really happy.

Just don't forget us plebes back in the blogosphere. We miss you when you're gone.

It seems we lose another blogger to Facebook daily. Of course, I've resorted to blogging about Facebook, so I'm not sure that's much better.

I think everyone gets a little addicted.

I keep hoping the addiction will pass. Currently, I'm on hiatus from Facebook. I'm forcing myself to stay away, but I'm not sure how long my will power will last.

(It doesn't help when friends keep asking me when I'm going to take my turn at scrabble.)
