Thoughts Aloud

Thoughts Allowed Aloud

I missed you silly!
I know what you are probably saying... ‘’girl, thought your blogging died a natural death’’. Sorry, to burst your bubble, it didn’t!!! I actually do not have any good reason for being away so long. Oh no, I do! My creative mind was in recess.

Today, I’m just gonna think aloud and let my fingers do the typing. Hmmmn, somehow, all that runs through my mind is, ”Lawd, how and why did I get a facebook account?” Howwww???! :-(
Don’t get me wrong oh, I loves loves loves the Facebook concept buh, sometimes, I'm just like hmmmn!

First of all, dear Mark Zuckerberg, what is the idea behind ‘poke’? If I want to get someone’s attention, emmm, couldn't I just write on his wall? **puzzled face**
Facebook has taken away some of my freedom to snub! You know, sometimes I suspect that facebook just adds friends for you without your knowledge (conspiracy theory **winks**).
There are some facebook friends I have but if we meet physically, I have a feeling we would wear the ‘YIMU’ face and walk by without talking. Okay, I've done that before.
Just because we have 29 friends in common doesn’t make us friends. Friend request DENIED. I don’t know you!

Plus, that awkward moment when I'm stalking out someone’s realllllly old posts and my cursor mistakenly ‘likes’ her/his old status. What other evidence does that person need to know I'm an FB stalker? I can’t ‘unlike’ afterall the evidence is already in her/his mailbox. :-( Has it ever happened to you?
 It would be terrible if facebook could show how many times I ‘visted’ someone’s profile. I’ll just die of shame.

Then, there is the WICKEDNESS of ‘friends’ tagging you in pictures where you look like a dinosaur trying to hatch. You never know the picture existed until everyone is complimenting the ‘taggers’ swag and asking who the dinosaur is. #thatsucks

And it’s funny how some people go from Single to In A Relationship to It’s complicated all within a week. How about an ‘I'm confused’. Heheheheehehee. #windeck

I'm hesitant when it comes to ‘commenting’ on an FB status. Cos, the follow up mail alerts I get fit vex me to the extent I have to delete my comment. Yes, I do!
One advice please! Oh my people, I think you are breaking an unwritten facebook rule by liking your own status. Oh me Lawd, it’s like sending your self an sms!

Don’t you just miss the days before facebook? The days when XYZ went to UK and back and you didn’t have to know? The days when ABC checked into a hotel and the pictures were not rammed down your throat? Call me a hater but I miss the days when I didn’t have to know how ‘awesome’ my ‘’’friends’’’ lives seemingly are.
N/B: we are friends on facebook no mean say we are paddies in real life sho gbo? You don’t know me like that!
Naahhh, I'm just kidding with you guys. It’s Thoughts Allowed (I mean aloud). I love my facebook family. Kiss kiss.  

Before I leave, may I suggest a ‘no one cares’ button right under the update status box?

Tuddles!!!

  3. First of all nice piece. Thought the only good writer in ur family was Uzoma.
    Secondly, being the critic I am I gotta point this out. " my cursor mistakenly ‘likes’ her/his old status. What other evidence does that person need to know I'm an FB stalker? I can’t ‘unlike’ afterall the evidence is already in her/his mailbox. :-".
    Facebook doesn't send emails when someone likes your status. Sorry to burst your little lie. Hehehehe.
    Your brother,
