Facebook, schmacebook.

Over the holidays my cousin Meredith, the most wonderful cousin in the whole wide world (that should keep her from leaving comments about how I don't love her), got me to make a facebook page.

I used to have a myspace page but I got tired of it and deleted it around the same time I deleted my blog, myspace was useless and the one person that I really wanted to find on there could not be found. I got several invites to join facebook from my family (including my mother, weird!) but I never did anything about it until Meredith made me because she was bored one night.

Well, I'm really glad I did because today I finally found who I was looking for and the funny thing is I wasn't even looking for her when I found her. I was looking at a friend from high school's album and saw a picture of my best friend and me and she had commented on the picture. She's married (which I figured since I couldn't locate her with the last name I knew) and she lives in Houston and next time I go down there I'm going to see her.

We haven't talked in a long time, we got into a fight in the middle of senior year and ended up going our separate ways and never talking again. It was sad because we were inseparable up until senior year, we had gone to school together since 2nd grade and became very close when we both ended up at Bellaire High School. We spent the night almost every weekend together, hell, she went on vacation with my family to Costa Rica. I've missed her a lot and I regretted the way things ended with us and it was nice to hear from her today and know she feels the same way.

So, maybe facebook isn't as bad as I thought it was.

That is awesome that you found your friend. Good luck reconnecting. I got to reunite with my high school pals over Christmas break. It was the best vacation I've had in years.

Hooker...you better add me on facebook. Or I will add you. Or something.

I am glad you found your friend! There are a couple of people I would love to get in touch with from high school days. I hear I was quite the bitch then, and maybe owe some apologies....

I have had a FB account for over a year but just recently decided to do something with it since I was really a myspace whore. Now, I am addicted to it. Everyone and their mother...lol...is on there.

Glad you found your friend. :)

Ahhh, Facebook. Awesome to reconnect with old friends...but just wait until you start getting Poked! and SuperPoke'd! Gah...I think I had a pizza thrown at me and was given hope today. That probably makes no sense to you right now, but it will!
