Facebook in reality

Like a lot of people, I have a Facebook account. Under a made-up name ’cause putting my real name on there would just be too weird.
Mostly, its OK. I like the quick posts on how my friends are doing and its not like an e-mail where I feel obligated to reply.

But sometimes its just plain weird. Strange friend requests from people I’ve never met IRL or on the interwebz. ..and its hopeless for blogging.

But sometimes, its good for getting little gems like this:

Ahh the irony…..

In other news, Something Really Good happened yesterday … with all the Crap going on in my life at the moment I was starting to wonder whether studying a Dip Ed was meant to be… until I did my on-line tute last night and got a LOT of positive feedback including this from the tutor: “Well it seems Amanda blew us all out of the water.”

A pretty good end to a day that had me crying at school drop off when I saw a friend. Crying at home when the ER doctor Miss K saw on Friday *neglected* to… give me a referral or the x-rays which he knew I would need to see the specialist he suggested and then having the hospital basically say that *I* should have known to ask for the documents (stupid fuckknuckles). Arguing with my grief stricken hubby (we’ve since made up).

Update: We are fine – Miss K has dodged an operation and won’t need to be in the cast for the full 6 weeks.
Funeral is being organised for Friday …. the fallout has begun but I haven’t had to bitch-slap anyone so far.
I will no doubt blog about it, ’cause you all know how much I like to spew verbage about stuff that happens in my life.

    BItch-slap the ER doc and put him in a full body cast.
    LOL @ the YouTube vid.
    Thinking of you with the fall out and funeral (((hugs))).

    That vid is funny. I actually laughed out loud (which I rarely do to most YouTube things).
    Glad to hear about Miss K. They usually bounce back quite quickly.
    About dickhead in laws – take a note book and pen. When listening to BS or watching uncool behavior, write for a moment and then tell them “I’ve got to include this in my blog! What was that remark again?”

  3. Good luck with the funeral arrangements and the added complication of family. Feel free to keep the verbage being spewed here.

    Oh my – what a big week for you.

    Comiserations on your MIL.

    I can REALLY relate to the funny bone being broken – http://jeanieinparadise.blogspot.com/2008/02/why-i-am-trampoline-police.html – lucky you (well, your daughter) in not having to be operated on.

    If it makes you feel any better (which it won’t, but I am sadistic), 11,000 wrists got broken in one long weekend in England recently when the weather was perfect for iceskating.

    Glad you got to make up with your hub – sometimes when we go through emotional stress its not called “arguing” when we turn on our spouses – it really is a scream for the Bex of old.

    Oh – and congrats on the feedback with your study. Woo hoo.

    Thanks everyone for your good wishes. The funeral was OK – they are never “good” – but it was OK. The sugly isters didn’t start fights and everyone generally got on. I don’t think the truce will be long-lasting though.

    Jayne – LOL. ER doc really just needed a personality transplant I think.

    Liz- I was actually thinking – “must remember that one for the blog” on a few things 😉

    WFI – thanks. Spewing verbage does seem a good therapy for me.

    Jeanie – read your post on funny bones (OW for you and your daughter)… Miss K has a “transverse supracondylar fracture with only minimal displacement and joint effusion”. She’s in a back-slab cast which is filthy (despite us covering it in a sock with the toes cut out) and is becoming stinky. Hopefully we get an early reprieve though.
