I'm newly there!
I have reconnected with some folks I grew up with. I have found area friends to keep closer tabs on> next time I WILL KNOW when Alice is in the hospital.
But really, the best part so far?
It enables me to better provoke my on-the-edge-of-the-nest eldest son. He recently posted a photo wearing arm tattoo hose designed with snakes & skulls, stating that he just returned from the parlor.
Contrasting emotions immediately flood my mommy brain (is that where emotions go?):
UGH! that's my BABY!
And "that kid just cracks me up!"
As you can see, there is a bit more emotion attached to one train of thought than the other.
Blame me? Yes, yes, I'm grateful that they are not the real thing & that he has no apparent piercings. Even so.
Crossing my eyes & sticking out my tongue, I write on his wall, teasing him about wearing HOSE - but we both know it's not the first time.
Speaking of hose (here's how my wierd brain works: hose> support hose> election candidates need support> oh, I just found those group thingies!)
If you are a face-booker too & a McCain supporter there is a group: http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=25652988786&ref=mf
There's also one for folks in my area supporting Charlie Van Zant for FL House Dist. 21 http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=78251465044
So there you have it: Facebook group-up with candidates you support but remember you don't have to wear hose or tattoos on your arms or your face. Got that? Good.
