Facebook

December 29, 2009

The popular social networking site Facebook brings up so many intriguing questions.  Such as — when did everyone become interested in FARMING?   But the thing that fascinates me most about Facebook is how it will affect life in the not-so-distant future.   Do you realize, Generation Z,  that you are never ever going to be able to GET RID OF ANYONE?

The REAL Top 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009

December 10, 2009

Every year Barbara Walters tapes her 10 Most Fascinating People special and every year I find her choices uninspiring (although I always enjoy when she picks celebs that sound funny filtered through her unique, Elmer Fudd-esque speech impediment.  2008 was a particularly enjoyable year: “Tom Cwoose!  Pwesident-Ewect Obama!”  And whoever convinced her to pick “Mywee Cywus” is a genius in my book)

2009’s list, just announced, is filled with mostly duds:  Tyler Perry?  Michael Jackson’s children?  Jenny Sanford (Who???? Ohhh, S.C. Governor Sanford’s wife.  Really? How fascinating can she be if her husband traveled over 5,000 miles just to cheat on her?)
