facebook wedding invite? I think not

Now Damon and I are both on facebook, so I frequently scrutinize how differently we approach facebook.  For instance, we have differing criteria for accepting friend requests. My main criteria is that I have some idea who you are, Damon on the other hand will accept pretty much all friend requests. {I think he is trying to get as many "friends" as me} I am not so strict as to only accept close friends and family, I have high school friends, college friends, adoption friends, church friends, esophageal atresia friends, etc. I don't want you to get the impression I am too discriminating in my facebook friend acceptance, just that I have some standard.

Unlike Damon, I am not afraid to "unfriend" people, even though I've only done it about ten times. The main ways to be unfriended by me are to frequently curse in your posts or to rant and rave about how horrible republicans are. One more thing, I unfriended someone from high school because she posted what I consider vulgar pictures of herself. She requested me again, and so as not to appear rude, I accepted, then deleted a few days later. So I was still rude, but maybe she didn't notice...

I also feel the need to comment or "like" people's posts. I want people to feel like someone is paying attention to them, so if you post cute pictures of your kids, I am going to at least acknowledge that I saw them. Damon won't comment unless he really has something to say, and I don't know that he has ever "liked" a post.

The point I am laboriously getting to is this...Damon got invited to a wedding on facebook. *seriously* Not only that, but he has NO idea who the guy is!! This would not have happened to me due to my stringent screening process. {who am I kidding? It absolutely could happen to me, but it hasn't yet which is why I can post this} I am all for using modern communication methods, but some things are just too modern. I shudder to think that one day you won't get a beautiful wedding invitation in the mail. I love getting the thick envelope with the gorgeous invitation inside and all the tiny pieces of paper with information related to the big day, in which I inevitably lose the one important tiny paper we end up needing.

Not only is the invite through facebook, it is for a medieval wedding! Let us not forget our foray to the Renaissance Festival last fall. Good times...

Am I the only one who thinks the facebook wedding invite is totally out of line? If you want a present from me, you'll need to send me that paper invite that I so adore. Otherwise, no dice - you'll be celebrating the day without me.
P.S. We are NOT attending the medieval facebook-invite case you didn't catch that from my post. Subtlety is not my strong suit.

a cast on my

So, I have a cast on my ankle now instead of the good ol' walking boot. In the interest of looking at the positive side of things, I had my first good night of sleep in weeks (I didn't wake up due to the pain as I have been). I go back in three weeks for an x-ray, and if its healed (God-willing), then the cast will come off. Unfortunately, I won't be able to run the Flying Pig half marathon on May 1st. On Saturday (when the cast was put on), I signed up for the USAF half marathon on September 17th in an effort to show my ankle that it isn't going to keep me down. I have to be healed by then.

Getting around is a bit tricky, but I'm getting the hang of it...slowly. I CANNOT go down the stairs on the crutches though, I have to get down and scoot :) Going up is much easier. Please pray that I don't break any more bones with these crazy crutches :)
