I would like to take a moment to retract this statement that I made in February. As you know, I created a Facebook page under my stripper name, Chrissy Starr, for curiosities sake and to see what it was all about. I didn't want to use my real name because I didn't want anyone who knows me professionally to see me hanging out on Facebook. Although, they would only find me if they were hanging out on Facebook, too, but you see what I'm saying.

I have a pretty unique last name and curiously enough, there's already someone with a page out there under my real name. I just found out about her a few years back. She's married to my father's second cousin and even has the same middle initial. I learned that when I went to a doctor's appointment and they insisted I was born in 1965. NO! I was born in 1966.

Well, I'm now up to 19 friends on Facebook so I think what has happened here is a clear case of "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Every time I accept a gift of ghetto fabulous bling, add animals to my "farm" or find out my mafia name (Rosa "Big Lips" Gambini), I chuckle a little at the fact that I'm FORTY THREE and doing these things.

I mean, I even started a Dogbook page for Bernie and gave her a wienerlicious!

I suppose it was inevitable. I mean, I am a sheep.

I'm a Pepper.

I can hear you now.

I told two friends and so on and so on...

I don't squeeze the Charmin.

And I reach out and touch someone at every chance I get.

But please come to my rescue if anyone offers me Kool-Aid!


  1. I opened a Facebook account when Chris did (about a year ago). I only did it because Chris did it (yes, I'm a sheep too). Thing is, the day I opened it was the last day I looked at the thing.

  2. I am facebook free. This place is both embarassing and time consuming enough if you play it right. :)

  3. I feel so left out without a face book page! Maybe, I will try it. Baa baa.

  4. I started a Facebook account and found it pretty cool at first and then it began sucking the life out of me. There is nothing worse than depressed people updating their status every 10 minutes.

    At least if you are going complain about your life, start a blog like the rest of us.

  5. My laptop hates FB. And evidently, vice-versa. In the time it takes FB to refresh a page, I can make a sandwich, empty the dishwasher and retrieve the snail mail.
    I don't know why....I've probably installed it incorrectly. I only joined out of peer pressure. I prefer Twitter, but TweetDeck, who WILL let me post simultaneously to both, won't let me respond to anyone on FB, only Twitter. So, I refresh...and eat the sandwich....sigh....

  6. Facebook is the root of a lot of evil... But without it, I wouldn't know that I'd be Fidel Castro if I were a dictator, and Herbert Mullin if I were a serial killer. It has its uses.


  7. I just found your blog and I needed to comment. You are to be commended! Most people caved in ages ago. I'm only a few years younger than you and I'm not only on FB, but MySpace and Twitter. I felt a little dirty with each social networking site I joined, but I do it all under the guise of being "business-related"! ;)

  8. Oooo!! You caved!!! BBB n I are still without facebook pages!! I tried to set one up for my small business under mine and my partners name and it doesnt exactly work like that so I got all confused and closed the window. But somehow the facebook Gods figured out it was me now I get invites all the time to my business email account. Its crazy how they KNOW who you are and who you may KNOW!!! Creeepy!! Im not ready to follow this trend yet, but maybe when I get home from deployment.

  9. After reading Theresa's comment, I'm just gonna keep my mouth shut.

  10. I check in on Facebook every so often, but I'm on 'Invisible' so no one knows I'm there.
    How sly.

    Until I just told you. Drats.

  11. BAAA! I got on facebook after thinking the same way. I'm 42 & just signed up within the year. I'm also on twitter & myspace & another called Yuwie. I have a few more that people invited me to sign up but I can't even remember what they are! I guess I'll never be bored (I hope). I'll be your friend on FB! YEA!

  12. @Theresa,
    I bet if you go back on you'll get SUCKED in. Don't do it!

    Good for you! I'm embarassed already.

    @Hit 40,
    Try it. I'll be your friend. Baaaaaa

    @Travel Girl,
    Good point!

  13. @Kathryn,
    You know, I find that my pages load slowly, too. I thought it was just my computer. It's probably downloading a ton of viruses.

    You're so silly, girl!

    I tried Twitter and for the LIFE of me, I just didn't get it. I love that Verizon commercial where the dad is twittering on his cell phone, "I'm sitting on the porch."

    Wow, no FB pages? You're right about the scary aspect. It pulled up someone I used to work with 8 years ago and suggested we be friends. ?????

    What are you hiding? Do you have 500 friends?

    You can set it to invisible?? Hey, you need to go check your page. I sent you something.

    I didn't realize MySpace was even around. I never touched that one. And I don't intend to. SO there.

  14. Overall, I've enjoyed my Facebook experience. I joined because my girlfriend (now ex) did, as had some other friends.

    I'd forgotten how really unique my name is, so, though I graduated high school many years ago in another state, people actually can find me. Easily. Thank goodness it was a tiny high school.

  15. Bran da Flake,
    I'm enjoying it more than I care to admit. :-)


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
