Facebook Blow Offs Part 2

So I did a whole blog on Facebook and the very convenient but annoying ignore feature (click here to read it). Well I have come to realize that there is a whole other level of Facebook blow offs! Yes that's right! You wanna really piss me off??? Send me a friend request and then a few weeks later unfriend me with out any freaking explanation!! This has happened at least 3 times now (one person who I am not really counting accepted my friend request then unfriended me). But here's the thing why even ask to be my friend in first place if you are just going to kick me off a few weeks later? Now I am sure they didn't plan on unfriending me when they initially asked to be friends on Facebook. But lets be honest here ... how freaking hard is to keep someone a friend??? Umm yeah it's not hard at all. In fact it requires nothing! SO it's more effort to unfriend someone because you have to go their profile and click on the button that says remove from friends. Really are my status updates that grating or do I send to many Yoville requests??? OK I will confess that maybe I got a little out of hand with the Yoville thing ... I am a bit addicted. OK back to topic. Anyway unfriending me just pisses me off. At least give me damn wall post or message saying good bye. Don't be a coward people!

The Real World

I love The Real World. I have watched since the very 1st show with Julie, Eric, Becky, Kevin and all the rest (and yes I can name them all I am just sparing you) in New York.

There was nothing like it on TV at that point. Some have said it was the first reality TV show. So maybe that is where I started my reality TV addition! But I was in high school at the time and could relate to Julie and all the things happening to her and the cast. They for the most part were not that much older than myself. Anyway I was hooked and have been ever since. I have watched every season since with out fail.

The new season premiered this week and my Tivo had it waiting for me. So instead of going to bed at a decent hour last night I stayed up and watched the premiere episode of The Real World: Brooklyn.

This season looks like it will be a really good one. But something has changed for me. I still love the show but I have gone from relating to the cast as a peer, to thinking of them like children!!! Oh the horror!!! I guess I have to admit that this started happening a few seasons ago when they were in Denver.
Davis the "gay" one (the very cute blond guy on the left with the yellow shirt) revealed that his mom was very upset by his "choice" to be gay. He broke down and cried and told all about how awful his mom and family had been about his coming out. I was just in tears watching him. And all I could think was how the hell could any mother treat her child that way???? I would never and could never do that to my children. I would be just as proud and happy to have a gay child as a I would to have a straight one. It would not matter a bit to me as long as my child were happy. And all I wanted to do was to reach out to Davis and tell him what a wonderful human being he is and that I would be his mother if he would have me!! So I went from feeling like I could be on The Real World to feeling like I could be the mother of one of the kids on The Real World. Wow I am getting old.

Happy New Year

2009 is here. Wow 2008 went by in blur. So here are some quick reflections/observations from this year.

I will swear up and down and that the differences in boys and girls are mostly genetic and start from the beginning. The differences between my son and daughter are staggering and it's so "typical" male and female stuff it's just scary. There is something to be said for nature vs. nurture.

I would not survive being a stay at home mom without my friends. Now let me say that I have always had a good girlfriend or two but this is the first time I can say I have a couple that are true friends and that I finally feel that I can turn to no matter what happens in my life.

I have finally figured out that things (especially money issues) have a way of working them selves out and it's really just a waste of time and energy stressing about them and it just annoys my husband to no end!

5 year olds are really just a preparation for the teenage years. I swear my son acts and treats me like he's a teenager already, except that he wants books read to him before bed!!

No matter what you do you are NEVER going to please everyone so just make yourself happy and then at least one person is happy!

I think that no matter how many kids I actually end up having or how old they are or I am I will always want another baby. There is just something about babies that I love and will always want in my life. Now I just have to figure out how to deal with this fact and not be one of those crazy families with 15 kids!!!!

NO matter what toys my son claims to love he will always prefer to play with his baby sister's toys. A doll house wins over a Star Wars toy any day in my house especially if his sister is playing with it first!!

So here's to a new year full ups and downs and everything in between!
