Speaking of the cave of sorrows

I joined Facebook two days ago and it is FREAKING. ME. OUT.

People have been telling me - not asking, not suggesting - to join Facebook for a year and I've been totally disinterested until I caved two days ago. Now my email inbox is on fire with alerts as to what everyone is doing and thinking every three and a half minutes.

They are writing on my wall and adding me to their tree and tagging me and doing other things I don't fully understand.

Probably the most twenty-first century Facebook exchange I've had so far is with Brett Berk wherein we talk about Sunny behind her back except it's not really behind her back because I text her, 'Brett and I are talking about you.'

Or I'll be like, 'Brett told me this about you on Facebook,' and she'll be like, 'Sick,' and not in the surfer/snowboard way but in the that is disgusting sort of way and I'll think, 'Yeah.'

you know, i don't want to get all apocalyptic on you, but i am convinced that facebook is giving birth to a new life form. as in, soon humankind as we know it will take place primarily on such a social networking site, and eventually our last human experience--as we currently know such experiences--will be clicking "I Agree," at which point our essences get sucked up into some tubes and brains turn to RAM. yes, i have given this some thought.
