I Just Don't Get Facebook

I read this morning that "Facebook" now has 200 million accounts.  I tried it several months back, but sorry -- I just don't get it.  On my Facebook page, I would read that "So-and-so just brushed his teeth."  Or someone is watching Oprah.  Someone else just took a shower and is late for work.  Do we really need these kinds of details?  It seems almost like a strange form of voyeurism.  So I quit it.

Different strokes for different folks.  Some people like to hunt.  Some people like to fish.  Some people like to play golf.  Some people like to spend their time on Facebook.  I'm just saying that I don't get it.

My childhood hero, Arnold Palmer, hit the ceremonial tee-shot to begin the 2009 Masters about an hour and a half ago.  I confess:  This is not a good week to be Easter weekend.  I am VERY distracted this week.  A couple of my buddies told me that I looked sick, and need to just stay home Thursday and Friday.  I wish I could.  But the sermon still has to be preached Sunday.  

Needless to say:  I am very thankful for DVR.  

Late addition to this blog:  Why do barbers hate sideburns so much?  Since I go so rarely to the barber (once a month), I forget to ask each time.  But as the barber trims my hair, I will inevitably hear that sound as my sideburns are hacked off.  And it is not a single occurrence or a single barber.  And they always get them slanted at about a 45 degree angle. 

Any ideas?

Jeff just finished reading the preacher's blog.

I'm finding Facebook interesting in getting to see some old friends but I don't have the time to check it every day. I run in cycles checking it 2 or 3 days in a row and then not getting back to it for a week.

I have the same problem when I get blakes hair cut! I tell them almost every time NOT to cut them off and right off the bat they zip them off! Maddning!!!

I must say, I do have a facebook addiction, I check it almost daily, love it!

You still have to get your hair cut?

Jonathon's comment has had me laughing too hard to comment.

I haven't had the sideburn battle and I have to get my hair cut every 2-3 weeks. My problem is that they cut WAY TOO MUCH off in one certain spot. It makes it look like my hair is thinning/balding but I know it's just the way they are cutting it.
