I finally signed up for Facebook. For those of you who are not 'in the know', Facebook is sort of myspace for grownups, or at least for college students. It's got some nice features, but it has also made me feel very insecure about my friend networks. There is a big sidebar that lists all of my 'friends', and mine is a little skimpy. Some people have hundreds of friends, and I
have 12. In reality, of course, I have more than 12 friends, but in the Facebook World, I'm a hermit!

And, to add to my insecurity issues, I had to get weighed at the doctor's office on Monday. Let's just say that I've exceeded my normal standard deviation, and it's time
to reject the null hypothesis. (Yes, I had a stats test yesterday.) As much as I loathe physical exercise, I concede that if I don't want to end up using a crane to get out of bed, I better do something about it.

Oh, metabolism, why hast thou forsaken me?

Why is it so easy to commit to a diet in the morning, right after breakfast, but at night when I'm tired and hungry, ice cream andoreos sound like a great idea???

Are you feeling better yet? :( I'm on "myspace", not "facebook". Only a few weeks of school to go, right?!

I'm not feeling as good as I had hoped I would be by now. The knives are still stuck in my throat, but I don't think I have a fever anymore, and I had enough energy to make a Christmas list during my econ class today!

Facebook is no longer for "grownups". It has recently expanded so now it's available to anyone with an email address, just like MySpace. Totally defeats the purpose.
