I Give Up

Ok, everyone. You win. I, Eli Selzer, have joined Facebook (I think there's a link to my profile on the left sidebar. I haven't quite figured out the best way to do this). That's right, I'm nothing more than a surrender monkey.
Before any of you Simpsons fans get all up in my face (Adam, I'm looking at you), I'm well aware that Willie's line is, "cheese-eating surrender monkeys," I just couldn't figure out a way to have him holding cheese and a white flag while hanging from a branch. And no, Mike, I didn't do any zoological research on this drawing. It's a chimp's head on a monkey's body. Sorry. I guess I'm just feeling defensive today.

See, I've steadfastly held the position that I didn't need Facebook. When I joined MySpace, it became a ghost town almost instantly. I feared, nay, swore that the same thing would happen with Facebook. Maybe it still will. I don't know. I just don't have the strength to fight it anymore. Everyone and their cousin (and my grandma) is on it, and I don't feel like a rebel by not doing it anymore. I just feel like a luddite. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to use the site (I plan on promoting this blog, once I figure out how), but so far, I have to say I'm enjoying it. Maybe it's the flood of accepted friend requests that always accompany signing up for a new social networking service, or maybe I just like the site. It seems less like MySpace, and more like a focused, more involved and connected Twitter. I guess I'll see. Don't hate me for giving up my ideals.

  1. I, for one, am happy you have joined us on Facebook. I don't plan on leaving it, so you'll at least have me as a steadfast friend there. :)
