Facebook Blues!

My husband, who is a bit anti-social and doesn't like being on the computer unless he has a good Spider Solitaire game going, signed up for a Facebook account.   The reason I knew is because of the email that came to our shared account that welcomed him.  

I was surprised. 

This morning there were over 20 emails for him from Facebook; so and so has added you as a friend, so and so has tagged a photo, so and so has confirmed your friendship.  I brought that to his attention.  He shook his head and in a forlorn voice, lamented, "All I wanted to do was win some money in a Snickers contest!"

He got more than he bargained for!

Camille said...

Ha! That would explain why his first activity listed on Facebook was "becoming a fan of Snickers"! :) Will he share since I became his friend?

THE BADGERS said...

I can't wait to be his friend! I know there will be great updates posted throughout the day on his facebook. He just wants everyone to know what he's doing at all times! Let us know if he wins the money...or the Snickers!

Kristina P. said...

He will get sucked in!

Cherie said...

LoL I know just how he feels!

Valerie said...

So Funny!
Hopefully the Snickers thing works out for him :)

Lovely pictures you posted for Valentines.

Jordan has a Sweet car! I guess his days of buying a junkercar from Curtis for 10 bucks (or whatever their arrangment was) are over!

LOL!

I am a fecebooker.. and blogger.. and I prefer the blog.

Facebook has brought a few friends back to me.. but the only REAL reason I stay on it is for the updates and announcements people put on it. I e-mail my friends through it.. and I am able to spread news quickly to friends and family that needs to hear it.

But.. I can pass on "becoming fans of things, playing games, and invites.

If you get an account.. let me know though! :)

Heck, I'm on Facebook and I didn't see the Snickers contest ; (

The main reason I'm on Facebook is to see what's going on with my grandkids and even my kids.

Hmmm. Emails, facebook, twitter, blogging---do you feel sometimes that we may be loosing contact with "humanity".
how many "friends" does one REALLY have on facebook---friends????
how many "followers" do you have on blog---followers??? really
how many of THOSE followers comment on your blog
is it superficial??
what is REAL anymore?

Kazzy said...

I want to be Andy's friend on facebook. :)

That was so funny to have you narrate this to me today.

linda said...

So funny!

My husband has yet to sign up on Facebook even though a few of his friends keep hounding him about it. I've got to give him credit, he's never been one to give into peer pressure!

Brenda said...

Hee! Hee! Hee! Too funny...and I also LOVE that "spider" game (way to much!) Hope he won the Snickers contest!

Kimmie said...

That is SO funny!!! I thought I was going to read that he did Facebook and you do Blogging because that is how Tracy and I am.

You're way of describing everyday events is SO fun and you always bring a smile to my face.

I hope you are coming to the Blogger retreat in October because you are one person I would love to meet.

Hope this finds you having a happy day. Only one more day until the weekend!
