So, I recently joined Facebook against my will. You can find me under my real name, David Casey. Please stop by and say hey if you have time.
I say against my will, because I received an email from someone on a listserv I read saying “look at my pictures from this event on Facebook” with a link. I follow the link, and am asked to enter my email address, first name and last name. Next thing you know, the screen goes “WELCOME TO FACEBOOK!” and within an hour I have 11 friends, several suggestions, and a plaintive request for me to post a picture. I did post a picture of a very Anglican looking Weimeraner until I can get a decent picture of myself up there.
Shortly thereafter, I saw i got another email on my blackberry saying someone wrote on my wall (which sounds quite suggestive and possibly kinky, but I digress … ). So, once again, I followed the link on my blackberry, and next thing you know, my blackberry now has a Facebook icon on it.
I feel like I’ve been caught by the matrix. Anyone have a blue pill?
I have found it useful to keep in touch with friends and stuff. Integrity NY has a page on there and it is also has a notice about our Eucharist on Sunday. One of the possible attendees is a professor at General Seminary.
Does anyone know of a crash course in “How to Survive Coffee Hour?” If they don’t teach that at seminary, they should. I understand it can be treacherous.
Seriously, it seems as if it’s coming along very nicely and I’m quite excited about it 🙂 If you’re in town around 4, please join us at St. Luke in the Fields at the corner of Grove and Hudson. Should be quite lovely!
UPDATE: Apparently there are “about a million” David Casey’s on Facebook. I’m the one who lives in New York, NY and whose main photo is a very Episcopalian looking Weimeraner.
