1. yeah
And I'm doing fine. I don't care if all those other kids are having fun and getting ahead without me. Anyhow, I'm working on my secret project and boy will they laugh on the other side of their faces when they see it!

2. eh. that's your call -
I don't have MySpace or Twitter, and don't plan to.

I've used FB to get back in touch with old friends I haven't seen in years.

None of them lives in my area, and I find it a useful tool.

There is a lot of pointless, trivial crap on FB, but most of it I have no problem ignoring.

:shrug:

5. huh. some have put on weight, and some have kids...
but oddly, most of my best friends don't have kids. Weird. (they are affected by the weight thing, though :evilgrin: )

4. Who needs it? Not me.
It's hard enough keeping up with emails.

6. like I said...that's your call
I'm sure FB isn't for everyone...but it works for me.

Of course, I don't get a lot of emails.

8. I signed up on Facebook
but I can't really figure out how it works, and it just doesn't seem very interesting. Most of the people I want to see, I'm seeing them already. The people I used to know that I don't see any more, there's a reason for that. And there's all this stuff like, "Today I had oatmeal for breakfast." WTF?

10. I had pretty much the same reaction. Just not interesting to me.
I did find an old college roommate, though. We exchanged emails once and I never heard back from her. :shrug:

And the people I really would like to find (old boyfriends, hehehe) don't seem to want to be found!
