My Face is Back in the Book, Baby

Well, I have an announcement and I couldn't think of anyplace better to make it than my widely published and well-read blog: I am officially back on Facebook. This announcement brings a myriad of emotions with it; some of joy, some of belonging after years of disconnect, and some of outright fear, like you get at the top of Sears Tower, leaning against the glass as you hear a soft 'creeeek' from the otherwise silent glass. Just as my beard is soon to come off, so has my inner technologically-impaired neanderthal passed on, a young sapling taking its place. Here's what my fear is: this really shouldn't be a significant point in my life, and yet I'm treating it like one. Of all the things I could blog about (my wife giving birth to our first child, my being promoted to CEO, getting my first patent, the passing of six significant family members), I chose to write about a social networking website? So let me just say that I am not obsessed with Facebook, and I am considering my recent affiliation with it as an exercise in will and discipline. Do not be surprised if my facebook resposes are retarded in length and my profile is delayed in information. Now that I am back on however, I will say that it is great to see so many friends' profiles again, and I thoroughly look forward to keeping tabs like a stalker on all of my new friends. Just kidding. But seriously, I have been nominated for The Longest Friend Confirmation Award, approximately 18 months.

And you're back on the addiction that is facebook. Sounds like fun!

Now see what you can do about getting Anne to sign up. Also we want to set you up with our cousin.

Why hello! You found me: congratulations!

First of all, I must commend you for liking both Elf and The Jungle. I happen to be a big fan of both. In fact, right now my voicemail says "Buddy the Elf, What's your favorite color?!" I changed it the day after Thanksgiving in honor of the holiday season. I figure now we're over half-way back to Christmas, no point in changing it!

Anywho: besides the point. Now that we are blog friends, we should be facebook friends. And maybe real friends.
