"Never fear. Him is here" - Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise), Cannonball Run
Mace Windu: Then our worst fears have been realized. We must move quickly if the Jedi Order is to survive.
It's important to tread carefully when discussing pointless babble with social networking addicts who believe their pointless babble is important.
My sister is one of those.
I was informed by my sister that I'm a 'freak' who doesn't understand social networking because I asked her how to block the numerous daily messages posted by a new Face book friend. This lady not only posts what she's doing on an hourly basis. She posts what her family members are doing. For example... 'Hubby is at the dentist's office right now.' Followed by 'Hubby just called to let me know his tooth came out OK but didn't like the anaesthsia.' Followed by 'Hubby is on his way to work and I'm thinking about dinner plans...' etc., etc., ad nauseum.
My sister not only posts similar pointless updates, but gives us daily briefings on her worries and frustrations, followed by those annoying ::SIGHS:: and ::ARGHS::. 'Hoping I can get to sleep tonight. ::CROSS FINGERS AND TOES::' 'My insomnia hit again and only got four hours last night. ::ARGH::' 'Having a glass of wine before bed so the Sand Man will come early.' 'Sand Man didn't come until 2am last night! ::SIGH::'
Thank God I don't get updates about her hemorrhoids!
My sister also collects something called HATCHLINGS, which are some sort of idiotic eggs traded online with other folks who have little better to do than collect imaginary eggs. Completely pointless and time-wasting activity that gets posted to my home page. I finally figured out how to block this and other applications.
Now if I can block those silly polls, questionnaires and chain-letter activities... Which Gilligan's Island Character are You? Which of these 250 movies have you seen? And the most pointless of all... Pick up the nearest book, go to page 57 and find the first sentence of the second paragraph, post it on your wall then pass this on to your twenty-five favorite friends!
