CSP vs. Social Media

When someone CSP is a little wary of friended me on Facebook this week we had the following conversation (you may remember CSP is not a fan of the WORLD WIDE WEB):

CSP:  I’m so glad I’m not on Facebook.  I’m UNPLUGGED!!!  I don’t even text!

Me:  Well that’s going to change soon when you get your new phone.  You’ll be texting then.

CSP:  Just to you and my parents.  Don’t get any ideas!  I’m not getting on Facebook and I’m not going to TWIT either!

CSP goes green again. And not in the way that helps the Earth.

CSP & I have been enjoying this tv show called How the States Got Their Shapes on the History Channel.  It is hosted by Brian Unger.  Brian Unger is really funny and charming and very handsome.  Not unlike my dear CSP.  Brian Unger is on Twitter.  You can follow him at @bungerla.  I am also on Twitter.  You can follow me at @heyshanny.  A few questions creeped into my brain while we’ve been watching the show as I am of a curious nature.  So I tweeted Mr. Unger.  He tweeted me back.  I told CSP about the exchange and this is what happened:

Me:  So guess who I’ve been tweeting with?

CSP:  Who?

Brian Unger, the host of How the States Got Their Shapes.  (I explained that I had a couple questions).

Do you think he’s hot or something?

No! (YES!)

And he wrote you back?  Great.  Just great. 

What?  Why are you acting jealous?  It’s not like I’m going to run off with a tv host.  He just answered a couple of tweets.

Yeah, well how do I know for sure?  I mean, this IS THE AGE OF THE SMART PHONE! 

 

Those of you who are long time readers may remember that this happened before a few years ago when CSP turned suspicious of the internet.  Apparently every good looking man on tv is just one tweet away from sweeping me off my feet.  You know they all dream of hooking up with a Southern housewife and now that all the Hollywood hotties have smart phones it’s only a matter of time.

 

31

This is my 31st post of this year of posting every day.  It’s not the easiest goal, especially with Facebook out there.  I go to blog sometimes and I feel like y’all already know everything I’ve been up to.  But I’m psyched I’ve been able to get through this month blogging each day.  It got easier as the month went on.  And so many things are on the horizon that I have plenty to talk about.

Facebook has sucked the brains out of my head

I used to be witty.  I used to write.  Often.  I used to blog.  Often.  Now do you know what I’m concerned about?  Planting enough flax on Frontierville to meet my goals and building my haunted house on Farmville.  What the hell is wrong with me?  It has infected my family too.  I’ve noticed that in most conversations with my sister Sara we discuss Far

m & Frontierville.   We used to be creative, intelligent women.  PEOPLE, I have things to do!  I don’t have time to run 2 different virtual farms!   And never mind how I’ve totally let my island go to pot on Treasure Isle!   Seriously though, I totally blame Facebook for my non blogging.  All day long little updates are hitting my Facebook wall.  The last thing I want to do is write a narrative about all those little updates.  But I’ve got to hang in!  I’m less than a year away from blogging for a full decade.  Ten years of detailing my little adventures on the interwebs.  The internet will never be the same.
