FB Status Etiquette?

Friends! The stuffed mushroom was ahhhmazing!! Even as a leftover! I paired it with some (frozen) veggies and it was a meal fit for a queen 🙂 It left me feeling satisfied, not I-need-to-unbutton-my-pants full.

While that lunch left me feeling great, something else did not…

Sonofabitch. Man. I just hate that. It’s forty bucks, too. What really chaps my buns is that I had just gone out to check my car not 15 minutes before. My boss sent me out to run some errands, and that’s when I found this on LaFonda (my Honda). Grrr. Okay, that was me venting. This is me moving on.

Jamie and I met up for dinner this evening! Can I just mention again that I am so happy that my BFF is doing her student teaching up here?! 😀 We have so much fun. And she’s going to be so embarrassed that I put these up.

A night out on the town…

Bar night in Farmville! (We miss those days!)

Halloween circa 2008

We chatted over soup at this fine dining establishment – maybe you’ve heard of it? Panera? 😉 I don’t have one unkind word to say about that place. I just love it.

While enjoying our soups and baguettes, we started an in depth discussion about something I think almost everyone has an opinion on: Facebook Status Etiquette. Let me preface this with the statement that I’m a self-professed Facebook stalker. I’m not ratting on anyone who’s on there 24/7. I’m on FB several times a day. Therefore, there are things that irk me, and I don’t think I’m the only one.

  • Case One – The TMI Status: Telling the Facebook world that you were up all night vomiting and having diarrhea is not something anyone (not even your own mother) wants to read on their newsfeed.
  • Case Two – The Blow-By-Blow Status: When typing out a paragraph-long status about waking up, showering, stubbing a toe, running to Point A, Point B and Point C, cleaning the bathroom and giving the dog a bath – does one ever think: Who really wants to know this? (Other than the person who’s stalking you and trying to find the best time to rob your house).
  • Case Three – The Updated Every Five Minutes Status: Please just stop. Your clogging up my newsfeed, therefore taking away from my experience of stalking more interesting people.
  • Case Four – The Compliant about the Significant Other Status: It’s awkward when you put your dirty laundry out there for everyone to see. If you’re mad at Joe (or Jane) why don’t you call him/her up and talk privately rather than writing a mean Facebook status and waiting for him/her to react?

So tell me, do you have any Facebook pet peeves? I know ya do! 🙂

That said, I’ve got to go get ready for school!! Have a relaxing night!! 🙂

    Best! I couldn’t be happier that we are living in the same place! I absolutely love getting to see you whenever I want. We have SO much fun together. I feel like I am constantly laughing. I love those pictures! We have had some of the best times together. The first picture is my favorite. Colleen dancing at a bar- best day ever. Who can’t love the classic 1,2,3… game at the bar? And clearly, we had the best Halloween costume that year. LOVE you and LOVE your blog!

    When I see someone post pictures that are a blow-by-blow account of their night it makes me want to chuck my computer at them. To much?
