I mean, what's up with that? Not once, but TWICE!...I have sent him a Facebook friend request. Mind you, he's not my favorite magician--not even close--but FB keeps telling me that something like 40 of my friends are "mutual" friends with Jeff. So I figure I'm missing out on something. So I clicked the friend request button. Twice.

Both times I got this very personal, very sweet message from Abbi telling me that FB has a limit on the number of friends one can have, and that Jeff has hit his limit, and that she is oh so sorry but that's that. I got this heartfelt message TWICE, with identical wording.

So this morning I get up and log in to FB, and at the very top of my notices list is:

"Jeff McBride is now friends with ****** *******."

What's up with that? I mean, is Abbi lying to me? Why? What have I ever done to offend the McBrides?

And don't even get me started on Becky Buller! I've sent her so many friend requests that she probably thinks I'm stalking her. But do I get to be one of her 4,000+ friends? No. No.

Am I a leper or something?

I just don't understand this whole Facebook thing.

Facebook sucks. Period. In my ( admittedly stupid) opinion it's probably the single worst facet of the entire internet. The depths of the wallowing in the minutia and banality of people's mediocre existences are unmatched by any other single invention in the history of communication -with the possible exception(s) of CB radio and The Magic Café...

If you "don't get it" then you understand far more than you probably realize!

I loved facebook when I first got on it. Soon it became a monster destroying everything before it. I never look there anymore nor answer any requests. I'm too facebook phobic to even try to delete my profile.

I think it is funny at times how Facebook acolytes accept “new” features as if they were intimations of the Second Coming.

This is news as of April 25, 2011:

Facebook has just released a new button that allows users to share items with select people as opposed to everyone who follows them. The new Send button pops up a small email blank with a drop-down address bar that automatically suggests folks you’ve recently communicated with on Facebook. You can override this by typing in a name, an email address or a Facebook group name.

Uhm, back in the 20th century, we used to call this functionality, uhm….”email”???

I am not on Facebook, because of how dumb I think it is. BUT Stoney, I am your friend.

If the rumor mill I've been subjected to is true then this seems pretty typical of the McBride camp. But the person who told me that is a lying homewrecker so don't take it seriously. You probably just smell like soup Smile

Thanks, Danny. And it means something to me, I assure you, since I'm nowhere near the 4000+ limit on friends.

What, so that I can get in? Don't defriend him.

Look, I'm much more concerned about Becky Buller. Can you do something about that?

Well, just try to befriend Becky Buller. If you're successful, we know she has something against me. Which would hurt. I mean, if she won't be my friend, she'll never see the photos I posted of her!

Jeff McBride sent me a friend request about a year ago because someone suggested he friend me. I rejected him. I'm not a friend collector so I don't care how many I have. If I want to add someone I will but I reject more or just flat out ignore most requests I get, then the ones I do accept.

Well, if you get a friend request from Becky Buller, maybe we can swap friend requests and have the friends we want.

Then again, what is the definition of "friend" these days. Aristotle wouldn't be so impressed, I don't think.

Three Becky Bullers?

There is only the ONE!

(Of course, others could share her name. I mean the Becky that fiddles, and sings, and plays banjo, too! This Becky: http://www.beckybuller.com/)

But I can't say more, because I'm not a stalker. Truly, I'm not. No. I just think she's something like God's idea of the perfect woman. But I haven't done anything stalking like other than to request her friendship on Facebook three or four times.
