You Will Be Assimilated.....

I can't believe it, but I actually find myself wondering whether I should get up a Facebook account.

The only possible reason I can see to justify it at this point is the recently obtained knowledge that the eldest Llama-ette in fact already has one. Mrs. Robbo, who also has one, assures me that nothing can go in or out of the Llama-ette's page without the Parental Eye becoming aware of it, but I begin to wonder if two guards might not be better than one.

Of course, if I did so, I'd have to maintain a pretty strict firewall between it and Llama Central, so that would involve creating, or at least maintaining, yet another Intertoob Persona.

Whaddaya think?

That was the only reason I started mine. It was the only way to keep track of what everyone was doing.

I have no kids, but set one up to keep track of friends. While the banality of the chatter sometimes gets to me, it can be handy at times.

The alternative is for your wife to give you her login and password, assuming you both will be on at different times - still two sets of eyes, but one account.

Justin finally started one, although he tends to go in and hide almost everyone's comments so that should he happen to stop by Facebook, he won't actually have to see anything anyone posts. It's misanthropy in a different medium for him.

But beware, people will find you.

Hooray, another way to taunt you about the Nats...

I'm actually on the same wave length as MikeF. Haven't jumped in the pond yet, but it is the only way to keep up with everyone else; it's how my mom keeps in touch with her grandchildren.

But what do I know, I only got a cellphone this month.

Now if you'll excuse me, the damn kids are on the lawn again. . .
