The Move

Tomorrow is the day. The brothers-in-law (gotta love those Seamans) are coming to Katy with their great big trucks and a trailer and their big strong muscles, and they are loading up and trucking it to Groves for me. I'll of course be here to help load, as will Kristin. I'm extremely excited to get out of the city but I'm still not sure how I feel about living in MidCounty. I bet it will grow on me. I know for a fact that I'll miss ordering delivery whenever I want and being 45 seconds from everything I could possibly need (the Katy Mills Mall is less than 3 minutes from my front door currently and that's been nice for sure). I enjoyed being so close to my dad and Belinda and the kids, as well as Josh and his girls and Ben & Kate, but now I'll be close to other friends and family also do it isn't like we are holing ourselves up in some secluded place in another state. I'm very thankful that our transfer was to Beaumont and not somewhere farther away, such as Florida (don't get me wrong; everyone loves a good beach, but I imagine I would eventually get sick of sand and salt and sunburns). Tonight all that's left to do is move boxes downstairs and take out an exorbitant amount of trash. And bathe. Oh sweet baby Jesus I cannot wait to bathe! Here are a few images of the new place.

My, my, how time flies.

I haven't posted on this blog since before my son was born. I looked up several people on Blogspot & I have been reading a few familiar faces' thoughts of the day, so to speak. It's compelled me to set up camp here. I recently deleted my Facebook, which is probably common knowledge to most, but I still will receive a text or two a week from some insecure idiot who thinks I've deleted them out of malice, due to some silent complaint or unknown issue.

I take issue with that. I told Nikki this yesterday, & I thought on it a lot last night, & I believe I'm right. Facebook ruined the internet by taking down Myspace. Myspace was dumb & petty & eventually got old & boring, but it was fully customizable & you were able to show the world little pieces of your personality, however irritating that may be. Facebook, with it's popularity, slowly overtook Myspace & put poor Tom out of a job.. In doing so, it took away the customization opportunities of the former top social networking site & threw us all into a uniform world of bland pastels & "statuses."

Now, instead of spending time showing a little bit of themselves to their "friends," people have developed egos that can only be explained by a sense of immunity. They're sitting in their homes behind their keyboards & they're brave because no one can get to them, no one can punish them for what they say. So, even though they don't actually give a crap about what any of their "friends" have to say, they're attacking left & right, twisting words & ambiguous text & coyly placed emotes to mean what they want. They can be completely malicious & say later "oh, you read it wrong because you couldn't hear my voice!" This is true, there is no voice inflection through text, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out when a known bitch is being a bitch, am I right?

So, I predict the plummet of Facebook as well. Maybe if I understood the use of number signs in Twitter, I'd join it just to see what the big deal is.. But I'm not entirely sure #whypeopledostufflikethis on their Tweets. ?! Who knows.. Basically though, my point is this: Social networking sites are gateways for more drama than I think any of us ever anticipated. It is my sincere hope that they are on their way out. I honestly miss the old days of Xanga, even though I'm thoroughly embarrassed by my teen ways when I personally updated a Xanga account. -sigh- one day I'll figure out how to have those removed.

Anyway, NO I did not delete you from my Facebook. I deleted the entire thing. Facebook isn't fun anymore guys, & you'll realize it if you just write down every time you have something to complain about that is Facebook related. So & so said WHAT?!
