Facebook Frolics

A couple days before I left Longview, my sister talked me into joining Facebook as she had just done so herself. She walked me through the process. And I pretty much left it alone ever since because of how busy I was in getting moved back here and settled in and...and...and.

Well I gave myself permission to fool around on Facebook this evening. I was partly motivate by having been tagged by a Facebook friend for this meme called Bucket List. Thing is, I'm so new at Facebook that I don't have enough Facebook friends to tag the requisit 20.

So, I'm putting out a plea for friends. Is that pathetic or what?

Oh, its not just for the purpose of meme tagging, I seldom have the time for them anyway. So don't worry if that gives you pause. But I did start thinking as I tooled around Facebook that it would make another good place to announce when I have another book giveaway posted here.

Since I don't have twenty facebook friends to tag I'm posting the meme here too. If it looks fun play either here in comments, on your blog, via email (joystory AT gmail.com) or at facebook.

The Bucket List

The Bucket List. Place an 'X' by all the things you've done and remove the 'X' from the ones you have not. At the bottom of the list, add something you've done that's not already on the list.

NO EXPLANATIONS! If someone asks you about something, then fine - explain away. [for facebook play: Tag 20 friends (including me) and then publish. To do this, go to “notes” under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, do the list and tag 20 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click publish. If you don't see the Tag people in the upper right hand corner you are in the wrong place.]
