To preface- no, I have not joined. Now that that's out of the way...
I hear facebook is pretty addictive. People love it. You can connect with old friends and with family members who live far away. "Facebooking" is likely an accepted verb...I'm all for it if it is something that you want to do.
What I don't get, is the people who are up in arms about the fact that it has been banned in many work places. The Ontario government has blocked the site, the city of Toronto has blocked the site and it is blocked for most federal employees as well (the story notes that it is not blocked for the politicians as they use it for campaigning and connecting with their constituents).
I also have no idea why Facebook is "puzzled" by the decision...When you are at work you are supposed to be WORKING not "facebooking". Last I checked, most job descriptions didn't include "spending half of the workday on a social networking site". Facebook on your own time people!
And yes, I am aware that I've been a bad blogger and now I come in with some lame post about a site I don't even frequent. But, I just haven't felt very bloggy lately (if facebooking is a verb, I don't see why bloggy can't be an adjective).
I had to take almost a week off of running because of a sore ankle, but now that I'm back to it, it feels pretty good. I had a wonderful but exhausting whirlwind trip out west and a lovely day trip to Montreal. Fun stuff, but it has left me not wanting to spend too much extra time in front of the computer. But, that is the way it goes sometimes.
