why do people do this? Do they regard it as some substantive achievement?
It's not some sort of conspiracy to make you feel inadequate or superior.
I guess you may be right though. Still don't really get it though. A baby pretty much looks like any other baby.
I suppose you could?
not sure why you said that though.
My point is that while you might feel all babies look pretty similar I'm sure the parents of that baby can tell them apart quite easily.
because they're the two most important people in my life.
I do find it a bit strange when people *just* have a pic of their child, though. But yeah, they probably do it for the same reasons.
nah, probably just because it's because they like showing their kid off.
plenty more where that came from darlin'
I didn't last long on facebook.
plenty more darlin', but I won't last long.
pretty good so far. It's my eldests birthday and we got him a Hotwheels track.
(thinly veiled I have functioning reproductive organs post)
also more like: THINLY VEILED I HAVE AWESOME HOT WHEELS!!!
I'm listening to Ragged Glory pretty loudly which is a great morning album.
Also got some plans for every day this wake. Plans are always good.
when did the other one come?
that's right darlin I've done it TWICE now.
must have missed that...late congratulations and all that :)
just think this'll be pickledegg and xylowhat in a few years
or not...do you think they have had a who will leave DIS if we break up conversation? or if they are reading, have you? it's important stuff
DON'T WEAR THE BIG PANTS, PICKLEDOAF!
Do you think mini fella is actually called Mini Fella? I bet he is. Poor kid.
back according to his current employment status?
Yep. I reckon he does.
I think I've become everything I hate
only seems to be done by people who annoy me.
another thing...is it odd to keep someone on my facebook who I fucking loathe? She posts about 20 updates a day, and I'm sure I only keep her on there so I can feel superior and thankful I'm not like her.
i find both very useful. horses for courses and that.
that in all photos you look fat, knackered, spotty and angry
not really of course, I don't know why..maybe because they're cute, babies do all look the same until you have one I suppose
it's also a good way of being updated as to how many of your friends who you haven't seen in years have ended up in the family way.
up to them innit.
but i agree with ^those who've picked up on the ones who make a profile for their kids and then try to add you as their friend. it seemed a bit odd when someone did that. i declined.
never seen people turning friends into siblings. that's a bit lame.
FACEBOOK! Probably has little more than a year left in it before the broadsheets start to run articles on how people are turning their back on it.
what does this mean? It's early and I don't use facebook, help me understand.
and under info: brothers/sisters, he listed you as his brother.
That's just weird.
no-one was blaming you.
just seemed like thewarn missed the earlier mention of it actually happening
best just to leave him to it really.
I saw someone with the name 'BarbiePwrincess Regan-piacarra Mottley-Dyce' yesterday.
someone logged in under the wrong username
that must count as some sort of success on their part.
(whoops, nearly let the veil of anonymity slip off my beady little head then, pal.)
Jeez I'm like Columbo.
That kid has no say in the matter, and the ods of one of your mates being a massive paed are high these days.
what? what? and what?
Do you smell hammers?
of their child on their profile every week. Every other post is 'I love my little *****' or some such bollocks.
I love my child to but I don't feel the need to show everyone, all day, everyday.
she even gets some printed and posts them to us. i hate it. she loves it tho, so i guess it doesnt matter.
but like i say, she likes it, so i guess it doesnt matter.
Does that make me a bad parent ?
I can't really see a problem with this. Far better to do something like that than countless pictures of some people out being drunk and wacky
but the sheer volume of photos of this particular child is going to bring the facebook server down one day.
Which is full of photos like this:
It's fucking amazing.
It'd be better it it were a 'Blur' filter, and it superimposed the face of one of the popular beat combo over the top of yer face.
so that you rarely get bothered by the same dribbling moron on your feed twice.
Not sure that is sufficient reason for anyone to join up though.
What am I doing in here anyway?
but not anymore, no not anymore, now I can peruse this thread with confidence.
