I think I'll just kill myself now...

I joined Facebook a long time ago. I joined when the Oldest Boy was in High School and was camera shy...but only FOR MY CAMERA. I noticed that lots of his friends posted pics of him and being the scrapbook fanatic I am (used to be) I wanted copies of all of those pics. (and to see what he was up to) I had 10 'friends' who are almost all friends of my kids and under the age of 20.

My friend Terri recently joined Facebook and BAM, she now has 17 friends. Knowing what a social introvert she is, I started poking around in Facebook where I have never gone before.

People my own age...

People who went to High School with me...

People who were in the Band with me...



UGHHHHH.......



Who ARE all these OLD people???


My circle of Real Life friends includes some of those people. But they don't look old...I guess because I have aged not aged with them, I haven't really noticed them getting older.

It's those people I haven't laid eyes on in 23 years 10 years or so. WOW! You guys are really OLD!

Plus, all my friends are girls so they still have all their hair. Now I understand the whole Rogaine movement. I would want it too!

So, today, January 3, 2009, I have officially realized I am not 18 anymore. WTF?

I have removed all mirrors in the house, disabled all cameras and burned my birth certificate.

I took one last picture today to mark this occasion...



Whew, I still look the same!

And today, January 3, 2009, I am eighteen. Shows you for being born before me. Thanks for the wishes Lisa. And yes, Facebook is a valuable tool. (and I'm sure you are still quite young)

I'm almost 46 and go on Facebook to feel young....doesn't work. There's my daughter in pictures and she's legal....24. The other one, 22. I write to one of my friends from high school and find out it's his son. WTF. He probably thought, "What's this old crow doing emailing me??"

UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you look freaking marvelous. I just don't use mirrors anymore.

Isn't it funny that high school senior pictuures all look about the same? Everyone wore those stupid "drapes" and a nice necklace with their hair as loooooong as possible. And tried for the Mona Lisa smile.

Great look, Lisa!

Nice picture! You're right that the men seem to age more. We can use make up and hair dye. They have to weather it in front of us all. BUT. Men are considered attractive when they're gray and a little extra weight is less offensive on a man. So... meh. Evens out, I guess...

I'm good, really...I was only kidding that I would kill myself. There is no suicide watch here... I promise.
