I know I'm getting old

I just don't get myspace. And I'm an internet addict. (did anyone see the study trying to figure out if internet addiction is a real ailment? I think it is just another substitute for a hole in a life... but that is another post that will take more time than I want to put into it right now, maybe ever, really.)

I mean, I met my awesome adorable himself on aol in 1997 -- (Jack, if you're reading this, you would have been maybe 10 or 11...) -- I'm pretty hip for 39... in many many ways... and I'm not knocking it by any means... the whole friends thing -- it reminds me of a popularity contest -- people I don't know, don't have anything in common with... requesting to be friends... online networking I get -- but "Hot Layouts" is obviously something I don't have on myspace profile or page... so why advertise where your audience isn't going to be?

And a part of me doesn't give a flying _______ about it -- but a part of me wants to be sure to keep up with technology, trends etc... though I think letting go of that needing to be 'in the know' is losing its grasp on me.... which is a relief. But for whatever reason, myspace frustrates me.

This makes me sound like a huge loser, I think... oh well. Yay. I don't care. (It is a big step for me to not care what people I don't know think about me... really...)

I do not think you are a huge loser. I feel the same!!!!! It doesn't float my boat.

You're not a loser. Myspace is for kids, that's all.

Agreed. I'm also not a fan of Live Journal, I cringe when I see blogs on myspace, just the look of most of them puts me off. I don't see the kudos in having 89395 virtual "friends", but I believe in quality not quantity.
