Facebook (Part Deux)

 
Let's lighten things up a little shall we?  It's been a bit heavy over here at Fun & Games, and probably the best way to get us back on track is to once again let you all know how I am able to make an a** out of myself doing the most basic of things...

But, before moving on, I want to thank all of you for your support vis a vis my troll as well as your amazing compassion regarding my post on miscarriage... your comments truly touched me... I wish I had known you all years ago.



Well, hahahaha on me because I totally went and searched for every person who ever took me to a movie and cheap dinner and although it was a little pathetic that I couldn't remember many last names... I sat in front of my laptop thinking, "Oh, that cute guy from Texas, J... something, that I dated the entire first half of freshman year in college... or, what was the name of that guy who took me to the ballet for my 21st birthday... John? Jim?  Seriously, did they not make an impression or is it early dementia?  Too bad I didn't have a blog back then, at least I'd have some record of what I was up to...

Anyhoo, I emailed one of my high school boyfriends whose full name I could remember and who is now a f*cking minister in Washington, and I was all, Hey, hi!  It's 1986, want to go to my Jr. Prom?  And then I said nice things about the child sitting on his lap in the photo and mentioned I was married with a passel of children and asked after his parents (because my momma raised me right) and of course, has he replied?  Nyet!

Totally dissed by the Junior year love interest.

Smackdown, Facebook style!

No wonder I broke up with him (I think... maybe he broke up with me?) and started dating his best friend (whom, I might add, still calls me for lunch and occasional gossip sessions).

i admit it, i've done the facebook stalk as well.

Van - But have you been shunned!? I have been shunned by a minister... isn't that going to make God angry?

Issas Crazy World said...

Am so lame that if I searched for anyone, it would only be the man who sleeps beside me every night. And I know where he is and what he's doing with his life.

Reminder to self, in next life, date more. :) Maybe I should find people and pretend to have dated them and see if they pretend to remember me.

So you do facebook, but not twitter?

CDJ said...

I have a Facebook account/page or whatever it's called, but I don't know what do to with it. I'm the lamest person on the planet! I tried finding people from high schoon on MySpace, though, and was thoroughly horrified at how my school was represented. So it's probably best that I don't even bother with Facebook.

Kristin said...

Issa - I have a Twitter account (although I can't remember my login info) but I don't understand it... do I do it from my phone? From my regular laptop? Feel free to explain it to me because I am late to the party/missing the bus/behind the times/etc...

Who hasn't done the facebook stalk? One time my husband got an email from a girl he dated in high school, I got the email and was emailing her back as him, he wasn't going to email her. I told her what a wonderful wife and family he had and it was great to hear from her...like hee would ever say any of that stuff....it was pretty funny....I'm such a dork!

Ouch!
Maybe you broke his heart when you dumped him for his friend and he's never recovered ~ thus giving his life to the Lord, Preacher style?

Kristin said...

Amy - Let's just go ahead and say you're right! ;-)

Your ex boyfriend is a minister now, but mine turned out to be gay. Want to imagine what that felt like?

Speaking of, I need to go see if he's on Facebook...

Kristin said...

Jen - I ran into a guy who proudly announced to me, "Hey! You're the last girl I ever kissed... I'm gay!"

Hi, my name is Kristin and chances are I will turn you to God or other men. Meet my friend, Jen, she can't help you with Jesus, but she also has the power turn you gay.

Joe said...

Facebook stalking? lol That's too funny.

I'm going to go ahead and guess he's too heartbroken to reply.

Erm...remind me to never hang out with you and Kristin. Those are the strangest Wondertwin powers I've ever seen.

"Can't help you with Jesus"

Best Comment EVER!

Issas Crazy World said...

hmmm maybe you should start a new twitter account. I did the same password as my email and blogger, just so I'd remember it.

You can send tweets on the site, or by phone. Took me a few days to figure it all out, but I'd gladly explain it to you. Please, come over to the darkside! It's fun and I super heart it. Coolest is being able to spew or just talk about nothing...and no feel like you have to explain everything like you do in a post. It's like texting, but weirder.

Cracking up about the gay part. One of my BFF's always end up dating men that later turn gay.

I have stalked, but haven't tried to contact anyone!(isn't that true stalking) But here is my facebook ebarassing moment...someone told me to try it, so I igned up and checked yes,yes,yes(without reading it, obviously...) then I start getting these "friend confirmations" from people I hardly know, or don't know at all! Apparently, I sent a "friend request" to every.single.person. in my e mail address book and to evryone who has ever e mailed me (including some of my husbands clients)How desperate is that? Will you be my friend??

Gracencameronsmomy said...

Sorry about the spell check (or lack thereof) I am busy...and lazy..

Sarah O. said...

Hee hee! You just recounted my entire Facebook experience.

Sometimes it takes a while for the old boyfriends to reply. By the time they do, you'll probably think What was I thinking when I contacted him?

Also, I love the new profile picture but really, you're gorgeous and really should post a picture of yourself! This coming from a person who only posts a cartoon picture of herself...

Kristin said...

Issa - Ok, we leave for Hawaii on Wed... I'll sort Twitter out while I am over there...

Lisa - Yours is my fav. Facebook story of all time... I feel so smug!!

Sarah - We'll see... if he emails me back, I'll totally post it here!

Pollyanna said...

Okay, I've done something like this sorta. My ex, well to be more specific I pined after him in a big time way and he came by when he needed his ego lifted up by my silly flirting and gushing over him and his beauty and then would always try to get me to high so I would sleep with him, is now a DOCTOR in Seattle. AND his picture is on the website of the practice where he works. ohmygawd. I stare at his picture and wonder if he's still a pot head? Is he married with children? Still a pig headed dick head? (Okay, yeah, maybe I didn't have the best taste in men in my youth). And I wish I wish were thin and beautiful, like you, cuz if I were I would make an appointment to go and see him, never mind that I don't live in Seattle, and go in there and show him what he missed out on! HMPH!

*cough cough* sorry this was about you. I hope your ex preacher emails back soon! He missed out on a good old thing.

carrie said...

Hee, hee. I am sure I would get the same non-reaction.

It's not you. It's them.

The Domesticator said...

Well, I too have a Facebook acct, but sadly I am in the "over 40" category and many of my old boyfriends/classmates must not know what Facebook is because nobody is on there *LOL*

Anyway, I also wanted to say I felt sad to read your previous post....that couldn't have been easy to write. Thank you ;-)
