Blasts from the Past.
I hopped on Myspace a little bit ago. Created a profile - which pretty much redirects folks to this spot.
It was SO depressing. It's a place where you link to other friends spots and they link back to yours and your profile keeps a running tally of ALL your friends.
You create a profile and it says.
"You have ONE friends."
And that's TOM. Just a myspace guy. I guess they feel NO ONE should be friendless. So they automatically stick TOM in there.
Delete Tom yes/no?
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES
Okay so now,
"You have ZERO friends."
Okay, that's just plain awful. SO, you search around (during work of course) for people you know. Send invites and friend requests and you build yourself up to the current, "You have 13 friends."
Okay, not as bad as one or zero, but nothing near as good as the friend whores who still have "TOM" and hundreds of other people linked to their page.
SO, you start broadening your search......
Hmm. Who do I know, who did I know, whom have I ever known my entire life?
Which brings me to my point today.
I located a friend from 20 years ago. We were stationed at the same place.
Hung out with the same folks and had much the same interests and pursuits.
Lots of fun.
We later went to the same college. He and his wife let me bunk at their house for a while. Still good stuff.
But, then I left that college for another one.
We didn't really write.
Pretty much lost contact.
But now he's found again. And I've redirected him to THIS page.
SO- NOW I have to hurry up and add a post here so the FIRST thing he sees when he gets here isn't "GAY CARD REQUIREMENTS."
HI MILES ! Good to find you again. How's Carla?
Click around a bit to get caught up. And I'll chat with you soon!
