Social Network Down! What Do I Do Now?

I have to laugh at my own stupid behavior because today for about 4 hours my Facebook account was down and I wasn't happy!

I use Facebook for everything! I use it to email my friends that I have their email accounts for. I use it to look for work. I use it to meet new people.

What did I ever do before Facebook?

Was there a before Facebook?

Seriously! How ridiculous is it that we depend so much on the internet for everything?

That said, I love Facebook. I love it. I love networking, I love reading my friend's political views, I love hearing what people did today, I love creating stupid status posts that mean nothing.

I am truly a Facebook whore and am so happy mine is finally back up and running~

Otherwise, what would I do?

  1. I hate the thing for a reason that I will get into later, but the majority of my blogging and writing friends are over there, so now I'm stuck with thing.

    What I don't like is that I cannot comment anymore via the full-scale version with my smart phone, and commenting using the Facebook iPhone doesn't work all that well either.

    It was less buggy when updates were every ten minutes, instead of every second so that they could "compete" with Twitter. This also causes most of their apps to freeze or crash, which baffles me since that's what they use to keep tabs on us, marketing and spending-wise. If they switched to every two minutes, maybe their servers could handle the traffic better.

  2. Hahahaha...okay, I have a question.. why use an "app" on your phone when you can just go to the website? I have an Android and that is what I do, it is really easy. Just saying! So happy mine is back up though...:0)

  3. I have the generation of phone that is just before yours, and whenever I go to a site, the site will try automatically to route me to their iPhone or mobile phone page. For me to use the full version of Facebook, I have to have a strong/to decent connection, or the comments go a little awry. The Facebook "toolbar" also gets in the way of commenting sometimes.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …
