I'm Friends With Tyler Florence

Mom Logic's Jenny:  I have a lot of friends.  248 to be exact. Yep, thanks to Facebook, I'm one popular chick.


When someone asked me to join Facebook and said it would become my newest addiction, I didn't believe them."Isn't it just MySpace for adults?" I wondered. What was the point of declaring cyber friendship with people that I'm already actually friends with? What's the point in "poking," "bitch slapping," or "throwing a turkey at"  someone? (Yes, all things you can do on Facebook) And certainly, what's the point in the fill-in-the-blank "status updates?" (Like I care that "Mandy is sooooooo hungover.")

Well, my non-Facebook friends and friends alike, I'll tell you what the point is. The point is that it's like voyeuristic crack! It's a peak in to people's lives. It's a chance to be friends with people who you don't really want to talk to (but still maintain "acquaintance" status with). AND it's a chance to be friends with people who you don't actually stand a chance in talking to. Ever.

For example, Tyler Florence, Christian Louboutin, and Rocco DiSpirito... just some of my famous Facebook friends. While I doubt that Tyler Florence will ever actually "write on my wall" or "super poke" me, it is kind of fun to think that we are connected -- even if it is just somewhere in cyberspace.  It'd be like six degrees of Kevin Bacon ... who could also be one of my "friends" if I asked him to...

Hi Jenny,
Brianne Miller here - Tyler Florence’s publicist. Love the post, am addicted to Facebook myself (friend me!) and Tyler just might write on your wall…like Kathy above.
Tyler’s got two new books out and I’d love to send you some copies, so email me snail mail address and they’re on the way. We love the bloggers…
