So I rejoined Facebook, right, because I was going to England and also because I thought there might be a 10-year high school reunion (there wasn’t), and it seems like it’s a good way to get in touch with people. Now I’m happy that I’ve connected with a handful of people and get to “passively” keep up with their lives (this used to be known as stalking, but it’s different now). As it turns out, Facebook has more value than I thought. For example, I’m in touch with young cousins, know when people have their kids and get married and engaged, and even keep up with co-workers. I was surprised that in a recent (boy) falling out “friend” status was (pettily) on the table as a reward or punishment (and “friends” we are no longer). But really what I want to do is mock people on Facebook. I want to copy and paste people’s status updates as my own, because I think it would be funny:
- Leslie really wants to make a kitty litter cake, but is afraid people will be too disgusted (google it for images). I need your input! Coworkers…should I bring it for our in-service? [okay, so I like cats, but this takes it WAY too far]
- Leslie is going scrapbook shopping today 🙂
- Leslie Is feezing. [sic]
- Leslie Gets 2 meet my honey in denver 2mro night with NO kids. Im SO excited!!
- And anything having to do with sports. Rockies, Broncos, whatever.
Of course I can’t do this because it’s mean, and my intention isn’t to be mean. It’s not that I don’t like these “friends,” I just think their statuses would be hilarious coming from me… It’s So Damn Tempting. I’m a jerk sometimes. I’m sorry.
