Michelle Kemper Brownlow: We all waste time on Facebook. But this week, I found myself screaming "WTH?!" at my screen when I caught a glimpse of what some of my own Facebook friends were sharing with the world!
The people who needed to spend less time in front of the computer/TV:
"Is it Thursday yet?"
"Pursuant to Starfleet General Order 104, section A, you are deemed unfit and I hereby relieve you from your command."
"Sooo loving this Jake and Vienna interview ... it's such a trainwreck, and I can't stop watching and laughing!!"
The people who just need someone to talk to:
"I'm wondering: What's the dumbest thing you've ever done?"
"What are YOU doing right NOW?"
"Talk to me!"
The people who need daily (sometimes hourly) reassurance:
"OK, so I have no communication whatsoever w/ my son, who is on a glacier or a volcano somewhere in Iceland."
"I feel like a failure to my family."
The people who share helpful tips:
"Marriage lesson: When you're sleeping face-to-face with your wife and you sneeze on her ... even though accidental and involuntary ... it is NOT funny."
"Never fart in the spray-tanning stall ... I almost died!"
The people who give TMI:
"Now dinner, then shower/bath, then bed!"
"Today, I actually laughed until I peed!"
"NEVER eat a dozen prunes in an hour ... I can't get out of the bathroom!"
The people who, well, I just don't know...:
"Jing, joing jadda sing see!"
"He's got sherpes!"
"I am no longer to be known as Mr., Jesse or even Daddy. Henceforth, I am to be known as ... 'Chickenburp.'"
Whatever did we do before we could broadcast every second of our lives to hundreds of people simultaneously? Thanks, Facebook!
