What do I need to kiss to get my face on your page? Why is your page not all about me just like mine is? You obviously don’t love me as much as I love myself. You are denying our friendship.

Maybe if A’s head wasn’t so big, B would be able to see herself in the pictures.
Maybe A is going to cry herself to sleep on her huge pillow.

put her where she belongs…..Out of the picture!

A is really in DENIAL about how close she
thinks she is with B. I think maybe a facebook
intervention is in order. Just joking…lol

I wonder why “The one formal picture” is the only one B is smiling in and the only one A is not in ???
Apr 22, 2008 at 12:58 am rating: 28
This is a great observation, I bet A figured it out too and that is why she is questioning B’s choice of pictures. If A were a confident individual she wouldn’t care if she was in the picture or not.

A: I’m really telling you this because I’m terribly insecure and the only way I can feel good about myself is if I appear in everyone’s Facebook profile picture. Because it’s obviously all about me and not you and your profile. Psh. I’m going to go stuff my face with bonbons now. (jokes) [they're actually twinkies]

Shouldn’t the last message (12:16pm) be from Person A and not Person B? I can’t make sense of it otherwise.

Is “A” emotionally hurt or physically?
She needs to be physically hurt.
Apr 22, 2008 at 2:52 am rating: 6
I’m more concerned that A is under the impression that a friendship can be made or broken because of a choice in Facebook picture.
It’s like people who stop being friends because they’re not included in another person’s Top 8 on MySpace. You know who does that? FOURTEEN YEAR OLDS.
Apr 22, 2008 at 3:48 am rating: 2
I don’t know about that. Some people (see – pisces) take myspace photos and tops -very- seriously.
Sad, isn’t it?

My mom is, and my late wife was, Pisces.
As the last of the 12 Zodiac signs they are the most evolved of personalities, so I respectfully disagree with #17.1.
The Pisces that I have known could give less than two shits what others think of them.
They do what they think is right and don’t judge the actions of others much.
Some people tend to over-generalize…sad isn’t it?

This pretty much sums up what the social networking sites eventually degenerate to. It’s no longer about networking or connecting. It’s about getting my face on everyone’s site, collecting the most friends and then ignoring them because who can keep up with 300 “friends,” especially when you are busy monitoring who isn’t putting your face on their site.
Apr 22, 2008 at 7:36 am rating: 8
You know what? This exact thing happened when I (A) checked in on my wife Shanikqua’s (B) FaceBook. The “formal” pic she chose was her in a cocktail dress, holding two drunk bozos in twin headlocks under her twin headlights (set for fog).
She did look pretty; I’ll give her that…

You make me so “angry”!
I want to “stab” you in the “face” with a “rusty putty knife”!
I hope you “burn in hell” and get “crabs”. Because you’re a “stinking whore”!
I “had sex” with your “boyfriend” and now I’m “pregnant” but I’m going to say the “your father” came to my house and “raped” me and that the “baby” is “his”.
Then your “mother” will “kill herself” and you’ll have to be a “hooker” so you can take care of your “brother”. Then your “pimp” will “cut” your “tits” off and “shove a broken bottle” up your “vagina” and you’ll “die”.
ps. “White POWER!!!”

It’s intriguing but alas, one woman can’t seem to keep me satisfied…or maybe it’s the other way around…nevertheless, I’ve got to be free. There are lunches to pilfer and daughters to plunder.
Ohio’s working out for me now because the age of consent is in my favor and people from Columbus are the eatingest basatards you’ll ever see. The office kitchen is like a frigging Trader Joe’s. I know, Kentucky’s age of consent is 13 and they have rivers of KFC flowing through every town but I like girls with teeth and there’s something special about a lunch somebody else was planning to eat.

Claw, I can guarantee you, according to 9 years with Mr. Mishee, that I am not just one woman – in his opinion, I am in fact about 5 or 6 distinctly different personalties residing within one form.. so that whould keep you on your toes, wondering which girl I was gonna be today!!!

Checking the timestamps, it would appear that the most sleep was lost by B, as she anxiously generated the line, “It’s the only pic of me smiling…” Ten hours ofhang-wringing, and that’s the best you can come up with? What about, “Back off, Creeper- since when do we have a friendship?”
That’s the one I get most of the time…
Apr 22, 2008 at 9:14 am rating: 2
Or maybe B went out with some of her non-denied friends and I dunno . . . had a life?

OMG! How did this end up here?
OK, let’s get the back story on this. A bunch of us went to the Spring Formal here at Sweet Valley High. My BFF, A, booked a limo so we could all go in style but it never showed up. So I hitched a ride on a logging truck and got to the dance but I smelled like Newports.
Then A, ignored me the whole time. I saw all of them taking a group picture so I had to run over there and get in. They took one picture without me.
We all hung out for a while but then they all left without me. So I didn’t even get to ride in the limo I chipped in for.
Apr 22, 2008 at 10:13 am rating: 6
That’s not true. It’s just that the limo driver was drinking and we didn’t want to put you in harm’s way.

QC, when I was in HS we had something kind of LIKE face book, but a little more aggressive and a little less passive – for instance, if some bitch started talking shit about me, I would hit her across the face with my algebra book!
Ahhh, the 90s… it’s like it was another world altogether!
I remember cause I was a chatter on AOL and Prodigy at the time, I was actually considered a computer nerd by some… cause I knew about this crazy thing called the internet that no one else seemed to understand! ha! jokes on you!!

ugh, I am graduating class of 1998, I couldn’t have gone to college in the 90′s if I wanted to! (well, possibly, but… nevermind…)
I was in h.s. from 94-98 (ok, ’02, but that’s just ME)… I literally left mainstream h.s. like, a year before Columbine, which of course is when shit in H.S. across the country changed… thank God!!
(how weird I mention that, cause Columbine was 9 years and 2 days ago… huh…)
Maybe if those kids had facebook and myspace to vent on, they wouldn’t have gone off the deep end… also, I am a big supporter of “Go Through Your Kid’s Shit” cause God knows the kinda stuff my mom would’ve found if she had searched my room every so often!!

“Hey, Doc- check out this picture. I could’a sworn that I was standing behind Biff and his goons for this “Enchantment Under the Sea” photo. I even remember giving him ‘bunny ears’. Now it looks like I wasn’t even there…”
“Wasn’t – Even – There?? Great Scott, Marty- did you remember to destroy that “User’s Manual for Creating Your Own Online Social Networking Website” that you brought back from 2025?”
“Sure, Doc- I threw it into the dumpster behind the drug store…”
“…right where Biff hangs out, trying to steal beer! Marty, has Biff contacted you lately?”
“Yeah, he friended me. I figured, why not?”
“‘Why Not?’- Don’t you see Marty, he’s used the manual to invent MySlacker, YouTools, and BiffsList!…and now he’s gone back to the 50′s and is erasing any evidence of you!”
“Heavy, Doc- whadda we do?”
“”There’s only one thing we can do. We have to travel even farther back in time than Biff, and align the time/space continuum.”
“Well, this time, I’m bringing some food. Want me to go home and grab that leftover roast that my Mom made?”
“”Roast? Where we’re going, we don’t need roast!“

Under the irritating buzz of yellow florescence, the room looked hazy; nearly smoky. An odor of formaldehyde and rot permeated the dank air. Each breath pulled the stench deeper within her, and yet, she was powerless to leave.
She remembered stepping into Bob’s apartment in trepidation. He had offered her some coffee, and she woke up strapped into an ancient medical birthing chair. Now he approached her with a rusty scalpel.
“You looking pretty is clearly more important than our friendship!”
He raised the scalpel to her trembling cheek. “Jokes again!” he sadistically grinned.

It’s entirely possible B really was just kidding. I know someone who likes to fake taking offense as a way of teasing.
But, as has already been said, it’s hard to detect sarcasm over the Internet. Obviously B isn’t sarcastic in real life or A, being their friend, would have been able to tell.
Apr 29, 2008 at 12:35 pm rating: 2
Uh, RP? That’s actually passive-aggressive. That “teasing” is your acquaintance’s way of stating his/her anger without having to be held accountable for it. “I was only teasing!”
Apr 29, 2008 at 12:38 pm rating: 1
God, I thought I was the only one who thought this. She obviously didn’t express it very well, but her intention may not have been to be passive-aggressive at all.
Either way, she’s probably an insecure teenage girl, all this hatred seems kind of unnecessary to me.
