For inducing a big smile, tanka.

Stop by G's. I'll make you a fresh strawberry & banana smoothie.

awww....
boo hoo for you! How dastardly! I bet you're still wincing from it. I don't know if this has ever happened to me. Do you get a notice from head office? Is their an official .. unfriended alert?

It didn't bother me that much I just wanted the poem to have a bit of drama and a zinger about coupons at the end...(Although I do have a coupon book for some buy one meal get one free in it.)
This guy does exist , he did want to take me out for lunch but things didn't work out (between blood tests and dr. visits and a few ills that came on me that month). He probably thought I was putting him off and maybe I was a little...I was not into the dating scene for over 30 years and it wasn't coming easy for me...I have to face it, I was scared...
I've had people unfriend me before, most of the time I can't tell who left...I do wish FB would tell you who is leaving. It drives me crazy trying to figure it out...Oh well!

no worries
I was being face-tious about facebook. heh heh

so .. if someone unfriends you .. you don't know? I should keep a closer eye on my tally

oh .. wait a minute .. I remember one LitOrg member unfriending me ... when I asked ... he'd done it by accident and told me he'd unfriended his mom too!

so .. I didn't get a notice but did notice he was missing. Guess my friend list isn't big enough to not miss someone.

of activity and..
Kacee,
At times, for varied reasons, Facebook members de-activate their accounts. While the accounts are dormant, they will unappear as being a "friend."..When they return their account to active status, they'll show up again as being a friend. I've noticed a drop of two or three friends, then the number returns.

And, of course, if they delete their account, they'll disappear at your friends list.

Pen and Bobby
You only miss them if you've been in contact with them I only have a very few people that comment on my status...Those I would miss...
Bobby, I've had that happen a couple of times,where friends disappear and reappear, but I don't think this is the case since he won't pick up the phone when I call...I wasn't stalking him, just checking on his health and the health of his pregnant daughter-in-law...Oh well, he can't stop me from praying ...I don't mess with people who don't want me...Kacee

Facing up to Facebook

It's worse when your friends are still on your friends list even after they die......

I get warning for birthdays (which I immediately forget)cards have become so..... trite.... in a world of High Tech

I get warnings for weddings.... people fishing for pressies

The people I am interested in have such busy little lives... ie I am now cleaning my teeth Farting etc etc.... some even trying to impress by how rude they can be to the world.... I don't delete them... that would be like making people you pass on the street disappear.

Have to take the good along with the downright ugly I suppose.......

In this case, I guess the guy wanted something I wasn't able to give...and I didn't give it fast enough...I think this guy just wanted a woman to be his maid...I want a man that will give me a maid and a chef...
Facebook is a way I keep in touch with family and friends in different states...School friends make plans to get together and share memories...We do so every couple of months...
I take pleasure in making my Facebook friends laugh with my status...
