Why is it addictive?
... the pictures people put on as their id pics?
Do they see themselves as dogs? Is it if you like my:
dog you'll want me as your friend? a bit odd.
little boy you'll want me as your friend - even creepier.
Anyhow I'm going to change mine for an aubergine because it is beautiful!
... talking about crying on facebook - maybe it was the time I joined, the last day of the school year but it was all about tears.
... talking about crying - Toy Story Three and tears as if it is something to celebrate. Sentiment or sentimentality? Tim Dowling, is it, who writes for the Guardian lobs a hammer at it saying he can cry at external triggers - music etc - but not at real feelings - then he swears. I don't think he hits it on the head though. I have an image of men blubbing over cartoon characters while condoning neglect, torture and murder as long as they can keep driving their 4x4s on cheap petrol.
... mothers on facebook - 1: pics of their children instead of them - see above
2: and I quote: "to all the mums who have traded eyeliner for dark circles, salon haircuts for ponytails, long showers for hairy legs, late nights for early mornings, designer handbags for nappy bags.... and wouldn't change a thing... lets see how many mums repost this. Mums don't care whatever ......they give up....They love what they..." What??? Replace mums with grown ups and nappy for shopping and you see how fatuous it is.
