My Space

This post was almost in the garbage, but I figured I'd redeem it based on a few good lines.

I just spent an hour updating my profile. It's so ugly, but the problem with MySpace is that you have no choice but to make it ugly...any design that's out there to use is for either dumb teenagers, or really dumb teenagers. Sure, there are a couple of designs that work, but they're all so super-feminine. All the rest were designed by a blind teenager who's heart just got broken.

Tons of skulls and hearts and naked people and beer. It's sad to see what people are posting as backgrounds on their profiles. I just sigh when I see what their priorities are. I told Steph how bored I was with it and she was quite frank, "you don't have to update it if you don't want to." So, what I might do is link to this here appendix and say, "this is my Myspce WORLD." The reason I became so steadfast one hour on a Sunday was because an old college friend found me, and in order to keep up with old friends, you neeeeeeeeed an awesome Myspace. With that in mind (ideas like this will possess me sometimes, which leads to my much hated anxiety before Steph says something logical that I didn't think of and then I become normal again), I just gave up. I only have a Myspace to keep in touch with people. 

So, instead of naked people and beer, I posted a plain orange background.

You can tell orange is one of my favorite colors here.

you know, I should be too old to have a myspace account...but I do. Then I decided I needed a face book account. Gah. kinda fun, I guess, but definitely more geared towards high school/college than the 40+ crowd. I wonder if there is like a grown up social network site that isn't a professional network site (like etc) hmmmmm.
