Wow, a bunch of folks don't know about RSS feeds. Click here to read about RSS Feeds. Not knowing doesn't make you a dork or a dweeb, just incredibly old and out of touch. Oh I kid! Two popular RSS readers are Google Reader and Bloglines. There's others. I used to use the one built into the Safari browser, but once a month it would vomit all the old blog posts and suddenly I'd have 4000 "new" posts. Very annoying. Now I use Google Reader cause I'm a good corporate wife.
Most blogs have RSS feeds. A few don't. I secretly curse bloggers who don't have RSS feeds. Well, it's not a secret anymore, I guess. Why do they torment me so? What did I ever do to them? I have feelings, god damn it.
As for Facebook, I would discourage anyone who hasn't yet gone on from signing up. It's a thousand times worse than I imagined. People I never met are giving me massages and throwing things at me. Within 10 minutes of creating an account Nick Carbo bit and turned me into a zombie in his army. WTF? Last week I showed Chris my Green Patch and Sea Garden (sounds dirty, doesn't it?) and explained how I was saving the rainforest and ocean by sending people pretend plants and water creatures. He was very quiet and finally said "As long as you're having fun." That's when I realized I hit a new low. My husband will never look at me the same again.
Anyhoo, my incredibly loud friend Ivan (who I once threw to Nick to feed on) is coming over today. Ivan considers himself shy. Yeah, he's a regular Peter Tork. I already told Gideon he's allowed to shhh him. We're looking forward to it.
