A friend of mine who swore she would never join Facebook joined last week.  In doing so, she left four people in the United States who have yet to join:  me, my parents, and TV’s David Schwab.  Below is a file photo of Dave.  In this photo Dave is enjoying a Dilly Bar from Dairy Queen.  I’m really glad that Dave isn’t on Facebook because

it affords me the opportunity to use this picture and I also enjoy talking to Dave about not being on Facebook.  Some days we spend hours talking about not being on Facebook.  My parents, on the other hand, don’t know what Facebook is.  I prefer they not find out about it either.  I don’t think I could stand the thought of my parents getting a computer, internet, and joining Facebook.  Also, I’m sure my parents aren’t  subjected the ridicule that I am faced with where Facebook is concerned.  When people I know find out that I’m not on Facebook, they look at me differently.  After the initial shock, they then spend fifteen minutes trying to convert me.  It’s not that I have any specific problems with Facebook, it’s just that I don’t think I could limit myself to an appropriate amount of time on Facebook.  So, for the near future, this blog will serve as my Facebook and my Twitter.  And the "Final Four,"  Dave, my parents and I will stand strong and undivided.

  1. I’m not on facebook either and it feels more refreshing each day, especially when someone tries to convert me.

    I waste enough time on the internet, I don’t need to waste anymore.

  2. that picture of dave is making me laugh. hard. a channel 8 insider told me that dave hardly knows how to use email. I cant imagine him on facebook. but i do like him as fodder for this blog!

  3. I’ve spent my 15min trying to convert the man.. For a high tech…camera/photo/rainman/hero (my hero anyway) guy, he just needs to be on facebook. I think summerside kick, RS daughter and I should make him up a page. I’ll throw in oversea’s neice as well. We could make this happen!
