About Face (book)

Yep, I joined the facebook revolution ... and on some levels it seems like a great idea... catch up on old friends (even though it still strikes me as weird that my school buddies are MARRIED!, I mean they used to chase me around the school yard for crying out loud!) and new ones, invites to gatherings, sharing ideas and photos..

However lately it has been feeling very strange. I feel like a freaky voyeur. Checking out people photos of them at social events feels like I am behind the curtain watching other people have fun without me. Reading their posts to their other friends, like I'm sneaking in on their conversations. Listening in. Poking my nose in when it's not welcome.

I feel like I should be in a string vest with beer down the front, letching at people from the comfort of my own butt dented couch.

I know what you mean, I find it a bit weird to be able to read everyone else's updates and conversations. I'm never sure if I should join in, or just keep eavesdropping LOL
