Far too long?

I have been busy. Rather, very much.

But here I am again and I have plans. I am reading some good goal setting books, and am working on a few things.

I wanted to push this blog back into the electrono-sphere meanwhile.

See you soon.

Yes, my last post was about Facebook becoming my new drug. I confess I rapidly swirled into addiction and now just about everyone I ever wanted to know about has contacted me through FB. Or I have contacted them. And they have ignored me. Or something like that LOL. It is amazing who responds and who doesn't on these "add friend" features. Also, I found that some folks I knew 'lightly' in high school seem to be wonderful friends now. FB is weird, tempting, and surreal. One can talk about one's self in 3rd person and feel safe. If you're a voyeur like me, FB is a great place to go and look at pix of people you never knew and you'll probably never meet. The whole world stops by in your living room. Strange but seductive...

Facebook is my new drug

I have become a Facebook addict--I guess it is better than the other possible addictions one can have.

The thing about Facebook is that, well, you can establish or reestablish connections with people all over the world.

I have already made two incredible contacts--two that I never, for the life of me, thought I'd make. Those two contacts are worth every second "wasted" online, and then some.

Plus, I'm getting some good karma to boot! (Through Facebook's "Send Good Karma" application.)

Sarah Palin: the gun-toting beauty queen aiming to be the vice-president - Times Online

Sarah Palin: the gun-toting beauty queen aiming to be the vice-president - Times Online

I LOVE it!! What a brillant move by McCain's political strategists and McCain himself. I am now re-engaged in this election, even though I am undecided.

The more I read about Palin, the more intrigued I become. What an interesting woman. I look forward to hearing her speak.

Does this woman look crazy to you?

Victoria Osteen, wife of superstar evangelist Joel Osteen, testifies ... - Yahoo! News Photos

Wow, I am afraid to ask who did her eyebrows--disturbing! I hope someone asks that question, posts it on a blog, then no one will ever ever have those eyebrows again.

Human foot in shoe washes up in Wash. - Life-

Human foot in shoe washes up in Wash. - Life-

Think that shoe on the beach is just litter? Well now, it may contain a body part. (Foot, of course.)

It is disturbing to think that there are so many dead bodies floating in the ocean that these bodies are releasing feet and shoes that frequently. And we're only talking about one part of the northern U.S. coastline.

I wonder where these feet originate from? Aside from the obvious answer, of course. How do the humans end up in the water in the first place?

An even more disturbing thought: are any of them from lost crab fishermen from my fave show Deadliest Catch?

This is definitely taking the message in a bottle idea a bit too far.

Another pill

It seems that we're becoming a nation of pill poppers...or perhapswe already are pill poppers. Headache? Take a pill. Heartburn? Pill. Sad? Pill. Can't sleep? Pill, pill, pill. Now, there's a pill that might do for your body what exercise does for your body. How wonderful for us lazy self-absorbed overeating sloths.

But don't take my word for it. Read more here. You too can hope for a brighter, pillicious day ahead. And maybe the slender body you've always dreamed about.
