Kid's FB friends by muchagecko (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 09:24:31 AM EST
Only if the kid's friend me. My daughter's boyfriend (a very sweet boy) isn't my FB friend, but my daughter's best friends are. I'm not going to step in were I'm not wanted.

My parent's were FB friends with my niece's boyfriend. When he dumped her, Grandpa couldn't help but write something snarky on his wall. Probably not a good thing, but it made my dad feel better.


A purpose gives you a reason to wake up every morning.
So a purpose is like a box of powdered donut holes?

with only if the kids friends me.

I may not be a great class mom, but I am twitter mom.

Which is amusing as I get to say such classic things to LO as "hey, you know so and so already read the book and wrote her book report, what about you?"

But seriously, you would be shocked at the number of kids whose parents are scared of or don't understand technology, even as simple as twitter or fb.

Tales of the South Pacific by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 09:53:29 AM EST
First Michener book I read, back when I was 12 or so. And very different from his later ones it is, too.

I've got Blind Man's Bluff in hardcover. Pretty good book.

I meant to add more by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #4 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 10:00:19 AM EST
I liked it, the short stories were related, characters were continued from one to another, and many of them died.

I've read a other Michener, Hawaii at least, maybe Space, and they're different, much longer.

I need to find my copy of Silent War and reread it.

Michener writes long. by wiredog (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 10:01:37 AM EST
Space is decent, The Covenant (which has been really OTBE'd) is pretty good. Never made it through Hawaii or The Source.

Friends across the generation gap by Alan Crowe (2.00 / 0) #6 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 10:03:47 AM EST
I have happy memories of when the father of a school friend showed me a proof that the square root of two was irrational. I cannot remember how old I was, but it was definitely too young, perhaps ten years old.

Indeed it might be more accurate to say that a friend whose son went to school with me showed me a proof that the square root of two was irrational. There can be genuine and wholesome friendships between adults and weird children.

Yeah, the internet can facilitate that by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 10:06:59 AM EST
and what does friend on FB really mean, other than someone I acknowledge to exist and I will let look at my pictures.

a grey box, with rounded corners? by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri Sep 18, 2009 at 08:00:40 PM EST
Recall I'm a slow Ubuntu, as the desktop and laptop are being used for FB and webkinz, respectively.
