Facebook is a strange animal, methinks

Posted on: April 6, 2010

I really don’t think I’m a Facebook kinda guy. I mean, there are people I haven’t talked to for decades and that has suited me just fine for decades. Now I can see what they look like all these years later. It’s not a pretty sight. Well, with one exception. A former neighbor, Brenda, who hasn’t changed one iota from high school. Not a bit. That’s just not possible, but there it is.

A friend of my sisters, Carol, sits in a photo with a relaxed dog on her floor. A girl I remember from high school, Annette, her father, very British, fought in the Royal Navy in WWII, was the town magistrate, and the high school principle. She became a teacher. There are others, but those stand out. Why say hi? I guess I’m just not a Facebook kinda guy. Iit was interesting taking a look, but I’m happy to let the Facebook thing lapse, actually.

Maybe writers are anti-social. It’s closing on 9 pm now. I’ll be stuck in this office til who knows when, working on several hundred- no, actually thousands- of photographs taken over three days and I have to rush to get the best ones out. All sports shots. You don’t have a social life when you do that to make money. Working on pipeline was easier in some ways. And those I worked with there are good guys, most of them. Would I say hi to them on Facebook? Not a royal chance in hell.

And now back to work.
