The Winter of My Discontent

January 7, 2009

Confession time: sometimes lurking on facebook serves to make me jealous of the people I stalk. I tell myself I’m just keeping up with friends, but in truth, I’m coveting:

I’m a master at thinking up excuses for checking my facebook 3 million times a day – I might have an important message, I need to upload some photos – but I’m there to stalk, and to seethe over your good fortune. I’m there to see just how many miles I need to run/clothes I need to buy/pictures of my house I need to take to keep up with the Joneses.

    Bwahahaaa – without embarrassing myself by sharing personal details – I’ll jusy say, “Me, too.”

    Me too… but you know what I covet the most? The growing and lasting friendships. I’m not great at keeping in touch… and my life has flipped inside out since I left GSO. Sometimes I feel like everyone was from a different lifetime, light years away. I miss everyone. 🙁

    Hi. I ran across your blog… well, because I needed a good picture from the movie Pillow Talk. I really enjoy reading your posts. I loved what you said about Smug Married People. I’m glad to be one of them.

    About facebook… me too. I think everyone does that.

    For me, Facebook is like going to a coffee house and sitting down with friends. I don’t have to put on a pious spiritual face or airs. It’s fun. A time to talk with friends and relatives with my shoes off.

  8. Wow… I think I may be guilty of that too.
