with facebook I have the opportunity to chat with folks I normally wouldn't chat with. which is nice. And I've run into a couple old pals from high school, which is very nice. I wouldn't mind if more HS folk wandered my way actually.
then we have these games.
I am now stuck in virtual land in two different games. They're both fun time wasters....but there's something about the idea of needing to jump online just so you can go and harvest virtual crops, before they die on the vine that is a bit disturbing. You do this to make virtual money to plant more virtual crops. And it's nice cuz they always grow...never need weeding...and the weather is always perfect. I mean where else can you grow lemons, wheat, eggplants and strawberries all at the same time right next to the cow and the goat who are happily staying put and NOT eating the crops!!
Subvet got Mr Rogers' Neighborhood on DVD for the kids. As we were watching he mentioned how odd it was that the trolley went from the house...to this other city...then those folks went through a hidden door into a magic garden. I told him. It's the Land Of Make Believe!! Anything is possible there!!
So, what do you think? Is facebook the new and improved Land of Make Believe?????
thoughts? jokes?? snide commentary???
oops, gotta go...my soybeans are 99% grown and will be up for harvesting in a couple minutes........
