Blogs, SL, and now.....

So far six people have offered me friendship on Facebook. I actually accepted from four of them, cos actually at my age you gotta get friends where you can (no seriously cos they were my kids). But then this afternoon the Mrs says to me, 'you know that Facebook thing, says here in the paper it's just an online knocking shop'. Bollocks, if only I'd known earlier I would have accepted Tracey Dacosta and Phillipa Sponga as well.
I have to say I am struggling with Facebook though. As my good friend Vicus pointed out to me, it's really for young people. You can leave messages on people's walls and you can 'poke' people. My son-in-law poked me earlier this week. I have no idea why or what response was expected of me. I am sooooo struggling to find out what it is all about. I asked my daughter and she vainly tried to explain to me how and why she could happily spend two or three hours on Facebook and yet again I came away none the wiser.
So anyway, because I am an open minded (gullible) sort of a bloke I won't give up just yet. After all I once had a quite successful blog, and I still have a pretty successful Second Life. I actually own an island and a mainland plot. My SL avi has a fiancee and we run a potentially successful Skybox enterprise. So for sure, if I can survive in those thoroughly modern virtual environments surely I can fathom Facebook. Who bloody made that anyway and what a bloody stupid thing to call it. I guess Google will be buying it shortly for god knows how many billions.

  1. "It says in the paper". She is obviously much too old for facebook if she still trots out that twaddle. At least she'll never be too old for you. Barbara Cartland's granny was too young for you. Methuselah's missus thought that you were getting on a bit.

    Vicus, for god's sake, the last thing I need before I go to bed is to think about Barbara Cartland - I'll be horny all night now.

  7. vicus, you are a mean old sod.

    Barbara Cartland is much more beautiful than I and you besmirch her good name by linking me with her.

    Tommy dear, you should ban vicus from posting such drivel. He's got his own blog for that stuff!

  8. Oh Tommy!
    Oh Pammy!
    No need to ban me if this sick tripe continues. It is more than the human stomach can stand.

  9. You need more romance in your life vicus. If the only place you can get it is through us, then that's a sad story. Poor Mrs. Vicus, poor, poor, poor Mrs. Vicus.

  10. Oh my, come on you two, make up and be friends. Or is it gonna be one of those situations when your best friends marriage breaks up and you have to choose who is your friend.
    Well I'm telling you now, I ain't choosing between Vicus and Pammy. Vicus is my long term buddy and Pammy is my very first cyber babe friend. I ain't dumping either of you so get over your spat and learn to be polite to each other NOW!

  14. I feel like I've intruded on something I ought not really to have seen.

    Here's me spending months feeling guilty about my inattentiveness and dearth of posts, and all the while you were setting the benchmark.

    My son said I was too old for Facebook but then he thinks I'm too old for everything. Little shit!

  21. Dear Pammy,

    I suspect he has been too busy being the "Demon of Dartmoor." Google it... I think the description and location fits perfectly....

    Vicus? Any insights?
