Social utility... or social crutch?
The lack of posts are a direct result of my recent Facebook addiction.
I said I'd never join because they "steal your soul" (i.e. steal your personal information and hoard it) and I find that scary - but then I discovered a work around (i.e. lie about my real information) and signed up.
I'll return to my regularly irregular posting just as soon as the novelty of it all wears off.
