What an interesting place.

I signed up about 3 weeks ago, I already have 74 friends and only insulted 1.

There are those 5 or 6 that I grew up with, who I haven't seen in almost 40 years. One guy who friended me hasn't said a word. The last time that I spoke with him was the morning of my Bar Mitzvah. He called to say he couldn't make it. It was understandable, there was a terrible ice storm.

Then there's the High School friends. The ladies are so happy to be back in touch with me. Interesting, because they wouldn't speak to me in High School.

The College friends are fun. One wrote me saying how my sense of humor is as good as it was in College. I have no clue who he is. I asked another friend, he told me that he's the Anti-Christ.

The rest are relatives, business associates and friends that I've made over the years.

My favorite part is the status section:

"Jane is going to the bathroom." "John just coughed up some phlegm."

What I decided to do was have a song, book or movie quote each day. Today it says "Jello came in through the bathroom window..." Many friend continue the quotes, with either the real words or their own, that part is fun.

My only disappointment is when I said, "Jello says, leave the guns, take the cannolis." Nobody commented.

Can I look you up on Facebook?

I have a good dozen friends on there that I knew in high school but never, ever talked to. I bet we'll reminisce about the good ol' days at our reunions...

I'll definitely take cannolis over guns.

I have been resisting Facebook and each day another invite comes, and I am standing here, still, content, outside.

You two don't know what kind of superficial, supercilious, superfluous fun that your missing out on.

LOL!!

There you have it. I'm opposed to fun. :)

My niece may be the one who "drags" me in. She posted some pictures of herself skiing, and it seems I may have to join to see them. :)

Oh, what the young make us do! :)

I don't know why I joined. I am having fun catching up with old friends and making new ones.

I'm back in touch with my childhood friend, who i always said was the one person who I regretted losing contact with. So it's been worth it.

Wow!! That really is worth it!!!

I think it is a good thing. I am just one of those who steps slowly into the water. I think the fact that people can so easily connect leads to a new accountability which is great.

Hooray for YOU!!

Do you think that a Jewish kid, who grew up in Queens and now lives in Forest Hills, would omit his homeboys?

I've been a poor boy though my story is seldom told.
I've sat in the railway station.
I've sang An American Tune.
I've heard the drizzle of the rain.
I've been slandered, libeled, I've heard words I've never heard in the bible.
I've felt Groovy.
and of course I'm Still Crazy after all these years.
