Facebook effect

by statia on October 25, 2009

I have a mild addiction to facebook.  At first, I treated it like myspace and I was all HELL.TO.THE.NO.    I am NOT signing up for facebook.   It’s like myspace for adults.  And something got the better of me.  I signed up last year sometime.  And at first I was kind of “eh.”  I felt a little dirty.  And then I discovered the apps and it became some sort of shameful obsession.  Mob Wars, Parking Wars, Pet Society.

And of course, the beloved FarmVille.  Which I resisted for so long, because the updates annoyed me, but I joined because my therapist said that I needed to take time for myself during nap time, and who am I to argue.

Of course the seeing old friends is pretty cool.  I found one of my oldest friends on there from elementary school.  He immediately got sucked into FarmVille too and he said to me “Did you ever think, as we were walking down to McDonald’s after school that we’d have imaginary farms, and we’d be discussing them?  To which I replied “dude, I so didn’t see this coming.”   But yes, I now have an imaginary farm, that I’m very meticulous about.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some peppers to harvest.

I was all about Mafia Wars, until the day I realized that I was walking around in my real life pissed off at some a-hole who robbed my mega casino too many times. I had to give it up then and there. I’m pissed off an enough real things.

I haven’t tried Farmville and am resisting the urge, but the urge is there.

You should go for it. It’s a happier app.

Ask her if she’s available to organize my house. I need that kind of OCD in this joint.

I’d claim 1st dibs on her but sadly she’s only OCD about her farm. In fact she has 2 FB accts one for real life, one for apps. You can tell she doesn’t have kids.

I’m addicted to FB. Farmville, Farmtown, Mousehunt and Cafe World will be the death of of me. Since finding them I haven’t ventured out much back into the innerwebs. :|
