Facebook Surprise!

So my friend in England asked me to join Facebook.

By which I mean the Facebook auto-invite software asked me to join Facebook. I thought it was a personal invitation from R!

I thought, "What the hey. It would be a good way to keep up with what's going on in his world."

I registered.

I thought I clicked "skip" when it got to the part where you invite everybody you've ever emailed in your entire life to join Facebook.

Two minutes later, emails of people responding "yes" to my invitation to be friends with them on Facebook started landing in my inbox. (Again with the friends!!!) (Thanks, Kelsey! And Liz! *smooch*)

So, um ... hi!

If you got an invitation from me that is Facebook-related, I don't know what the %$#@ I am doing on there, and I'm sorry if my invitation (by which I mean Facebook's auto-invite) was unwelcome.

So does it actually read all the addresses in your email contacts and shoot out invites?

*is spooked*

But I guess I will make it a legitimate page (?) now, so come on down, if you're so inclined. Feel free to offer helpful tips!

It's so mysterious!

Um, I don't believe I got an invite. Can you 'splain that?

I really can't.


Is it because we've never emailed?

Lucky you!

I didn't get one either. But that's because my inbox is protected by an invisible forcefield which automatically karate-chops & obliterates unwelcome messages.

P.S. Facebook is on notice, not you. ^.~

I need a Colbert/Stewart bumper sticker.

Do you have a Facebook? Maybe it only sent mail to people who have Facebook pages???

Truthiness & justice for all!

No, I don't have a Facebook. But I still stand by my forcefield theory. ^.~

I guess I might as well give up any hope of productive writing time right now.

I think it only sends invitations to people in your e-mail address book who are already on Facebook. It's to help you find out which of your friends are on Facebook, and to let them know you are there, but it is supposed to be optional. My husband did the same thing, though...maybe it doesn't always work when people press Skip!

I am on Facebook, too...I'll friend you there. :-) It's a pretty cool site.

I just had to say that in these responses, you have used all of your great icons in such a perfect way, I actually laughed! :)
