facebook, myob!


So, I have to admit, I am new to the whole facebook thing. ("How did you meet friends without facebook when you were in college?" my kids wonder.) I think of facebook as an electronic version of the obnoxious nosy neighbor sniffing out everything about you you'd rather keep private: who you talk to, who you email, IM, chat with, twitter, what you are buying (or even thinking of buying) online. For this reason, I am insulted to log on today (for the first time in weeks) and see an ad (just for me?):
Cure dandruff naturally.
The reduce dandruff brush discreetly kills 88 percent of the fungus that causes dandruff. Made from copper, a natural fungicide.
Um, shouldn't there be a hyphen between reduce and dandruff? But I suppose punctuation is too old school for new media.

Furthermore, I don't want the fungus that causes dandruff to be killed "discreetly", I want it killed brutally and unabashedly!

Uh, TALKING, films, gallery shows, living life in general (emember when you went to someones house because they had a new record?). I won't even go into the bar/pickup scene, you probably don't need them knowing about that.
