The Complete And Utter Randomness That Is My Life.

Where To Draw The “Friend” Line. July 7, 2009

When I joined Facebook in…oh, I think February, I set two rules for myself.  Rule #1: If I was going to cave and join this time sucking social network that I had been against for so long, I was going to make sure that I had more “Friends” than my husband.  Because something is not worth doing if you can’t be better at it than the person you share your life with.  Rule #2: I would not be “Friends” with anyone who I work with, and I would not seek out people who I know that also work for Starbucks, but if they found me, and requested my “Friendship”, and they did not work for me directly I would consider the request.  Rule #2 has caused me great difficulty in fulfilling Rule #1.  The employees who work at my store know of my rules, and therefore have not requested to be my “Friend”.  That, and the fact that they may have realized as I have that if we are “Friends” they would not be able to say whatever they want about what an awful boss I am.  And let’s face it, I want to go on thinking that they think that working for me is the sweetest gig they ever landed.  Up until a few weeks ago the Facebook lives of my employees and I never intersected.  That was until one of them popped up as someone that I should be “Friends” with.  I also came up on her page.  Not because we both work for Starbucks, but because we both went to Long Beach State.  I brought it up to her, and we both thought it was funny.  Well tonight I got my first friend request from someone from Starbucks.  A former employee of mine who actually works at the store down the street now.  I accepted her request, and I wonder what will unfold now in the world of Facebook/Starbucks connections.

So my question is this:  If you are on Facebook, how do you draw the line with who you will be “Friends” with, or is there a line at all?


Spreading The Love From Other Blogs. July 5, 2009

So I saw this video on another blog and thought it was so cute that I stopped it in the middle and called Keith out from the kitchen to watch it.  At the end he said, “What’s so cute about that?”  I said, “HELLO, they and babies…and they are rollerskating!”  His response was that they weren’t REALLY rollerskating.  Maybe if they were he would have been more impressed.


Happy America Everybody!

Today everyone at work kept asking my how my 4th of July was, and all I could say was…”It was long”.

We started the day with a parade, where Ellie got to wear her very parade-worthy dress.  Then we went to Beth’s aunt and uncle’s house for some pool time.  Then we went to Beth’s dad’s house for some firework time.  It would be ridiculous for me to give a play by play of the days events here, so I thought instead I would just post some of my favorite pics from the day.
