Friday Favorites 3/23/2012
Like my blogging friend, Cheryl, of The Art of Being Conflicted, I am not a Facebook Fanatic but I don’t see it as the root of all evil, either. However, having a dual identity on line … Bud Reed and Older Eyes … gives me a split Facebook personality. On my personal page, I post family pictures and little bits of trivia I think might be interesting. Very occasionally, I’ll post about a cause or charity I support. I keep track of what’s going on with friends and family around the country. I’m a fairly low-key user. As Older Eyes (on his own personal page), most posts are from our WordPress Blog, Older Eyes. In order for people to see the posts on Older Eyes’ page, they have to go to the page and Like him … er, me. Only 13 people have Liked the Old Fellow, so sometimes I help him out (as Bud) by sharing his posts on my (Bud’s) page. Naturally, I (Bud) have taken the time to Like him (Older Eyes) so all his posts appear on my page, along with my reposts. You can see how this gets confusing.
So, yesterday, he (Older Eyes) got a bit miffed that I (Bud) missed the three year birthday of Older Eyes – Bud’s Blog and posted this on Facebook.
I gotta admit, it’s pretty funny considering what a curmudgeon he can be, so I’m going to try to make it up to him by posting it as my (his?) Friday Favorite Facebook post ever. Besides, it gives me a chance to belatedly celebrate his (my?) blogging birthday. What kinda sucks is that I (Bud) am sixty-seven but he (Older Eyes) is just three. Still, he (Older Eyes) looks really old for his age. This whole post reminds me of another favorite Facebook picture I picked up off my sister-in-law’s page.
Yes, indeed, I’m really glad that I (he?) and Older Eyes (Bud?) have each other. Have a good weekend.
P.S. – I do know that true schizophrenia is much more … and often much more devastating … than the old split personality myth. If any of you have dealt with the illness, I promise, I mean no disrespect.
