Poke me...I dare ya!

I'm getting used to this brunette hair (don't tell anyone) and I'm getting quite a thrill when people do a double take! I'm just going to take it as a good sign. I'm also giggling to myself when I walk down the corridors and people walk straight past me. I'll greet them, they'll greet back super politely as if I'm a client. In my head I count: 5-4-3-2-1 and they turn around: "Blogshell!! Oh my God!!!"
Oh how I amuse myself.
This change was exactly what I needed.

Oh and while I said I was going to close down my Facebook site...we all know that I really wasn't going to. I had every intention of it, but seriously... let's face it (pun intended.) Do I want to really cut myself off from the world? Do I really want to stop being a part-time voyeur? I think not.
Even though there was cyber-bullying going on, I'm not allowing "them" to affect me anymore and quite frankly I'm learning *slowly* that people will do and say what they want anyway.
It annoys me but I'm over it.
So... I want to ask a question that most people will probably scoff at, like: "Oh my word! She doesn't know what that is?? How far behind is she???"
What the HELL is the facebook poke?
Are you poking me as in...nudge; nudge or is it rude? Are you poking me as in...grrrr and light up a ciggie after the awesome experience??
WTF is the facebook poke?
All I can say is it's ANNOYING. So-and-so has poked you. Would you like to poke back?
Sure. Why not.
Did it make my day? Did it make yours?
I doubt it. Send me a bloody message, write on my wall, give me a free gift, give me a growing gift even...but bloody hell...you wanna poke me?
So that's something I was wondering.

Oh and my new word is: ADORABLE!
I can't seem to use it enough. It's just...adorable! You're adorable.

Wow...my world is super exciting, isn't it? I thought being brunette would make me smarter! Go figure!
;-p

OK, so that's what my post was for about an hour and I just couldn't leave it like that. Disgusting.

Yeh, the poking thing on facebook freaks me out a bit..where exactly am I being poked anyways??? I use the word adorable way too much. Its a great word though, less annoying than "cute". "Cute" is way too over used. :)

Do I really want to stop being a part-time voyeur?

You're asking yourself all the right questions ;)

sweets said...

i'm so glad you asked that question hehe... cause i sure as shit also don't know... someone poked me the other day... and i tried to poke them back... and i couldn't even get that right!... omg i HATE FB... i really do!

Hi. So I found you on all my other SA reads. Anyway.

I do the 'poke back' thing all the time. And now that you mention it...I also don't really know what that's about? It is an effort to get your attention? Maybe. Is it because they have time to go around poking all the people on their list. Probably.

I have to think about that...mmm

And just one last thing. I freakin' LOVE emails like that. Anything to keep me out of work is a winner with me.

That is all. :)
