i don’t know when i stumbled on this brilliant blog. but i love it. mimi smartypants is acerbic, smart, and hilarious. here’s an extract to prove my point: (LT is her husband)
GET A ROOM OH WAIT YOU HAVE ONE
I hate it when married people talk to each other on Facebook. I don’t mind too much if they are just joking around or breaking each other’s balls, but the “happy anniversary to my special sweetie” followed by back-and-forth loving affirmations is gross. Don’t you two live in the same damn house? Is this the grown-up equivalent of making out in front of your locker, so everyone can see that you have a boyfriend?
LT and I are not Facebook friends. It started out for philosophical reasons like the above, and now we stick to it because it’s funny to watch Facebook continually suggest us to each other. Our lack of Facebook friendship is straining Facebook’s little algorithmic mind to the breaking point. Facebook cries, “But you must know each other! You have SEVENTY friends in common!” Sorry Facebook, never heard of the man.
