Joining the 21st Century

First twitter, and now this… At the urging of several friends, I’m attempting to join the 21st century but it’s a rather strange experience.

I grew up in the 80s, waaay back before the turn of the millenium. When I was in high school, I wasn’t the biggest sports fan or anything but I enjoyed hanging out with friends and going to the high school football games. (Sometimes we’d all go to a school dance afterwards where I’d spend the evening getting rejected by girls. Ah… good times, good times.) But once a year, they’d have the big homecoming game. That was the game where former students from the high school would come back and watch the game along with all us kids. I remember thinking, wow, that must be weird being all old and everything around all these kids.

Now I’m on Facebook.

    If you happen to find something actually useful or fun to do with Facebook, you be sure and let me know. So far, it simply serves as a personal information manager that reminds me about people I know: “Oh, Mach is eating a sandwich. I know Mach. Maybe I should say hi, when he’s done with his sandwich. Thank God for computers, or I might have forgotten that I know Mach.”

    We welcome you with open arms Mach. Come inside my pretty, come inside.
