I guess it's been a while since I had anything intelligible to relate here. Does that mean nothing funny ever happens to me? Or maybe just nothing interesting. Sad commentary on my life, perhaps.

Just had to write a note about the insidious beast that is Facebook. I joined, oh, I don't know...perhaps a year ago? I don't even remember what prompted me to join, but I had a page on there for ages without ever doing much with it. And now suddenly in the last 6 months, it has exploded. Friends from high school and college are finding me - and I, them - and writing and exchanging pictures and it's all nice, but a little odd. To suddenly be face to face with these older images of people who last existed for me when they were 18 or 20 or 22 is just a little disconcerting. I mean - some of these people have GREY hair. That's a little heavy.

And it's also a little odd in other ways. I see most of these people in marriages and with kids, and I wonder when exactly it was that I forgot to have these things. I know that I've made (mostly) the right choices for my life, and I'd rather be where I am today than in a bad marriage or raising kids on my own. But it's more than a little disheartening sometimes to feel like the last single person in the world. Note: I know that I'm not, and enough of my friends - especially the college ones - are also single so that I'm not despairing. It just makes me pause for thought sometimes.

Oh well. C'est la vie!
