|Facebook is the closest I will ever come to scrapbooking|
For a while I was keeping tabs on those posts by copying them to a notepad on my desktop with the date. But then my hard drive crashed and I didn’t save them elsewhere and so now they’re gone. I keep saying I’m going to go through them from the beginning (July 27, 2011 -- save the date for the 4th birthday jam) and copy and paste. But Facebook is an asshole (surprise) and doesn’t always show you everything from the past. You have to keep telling it “show all posts” because the default is “highlights” and even then it’s pretty hit and miss. (Hey, is it “hit OR miss” or “hit AND miss?” Hang on, let me google it. Huh. Turns out either is correct. Fantastic. I need that kind of uncertainty in my life.)
One reason I want to be able to pull up some oldies but goodies is that I can use them for prompts when I’m out of ideas. After all, that’s why I post them in the first place, so I won’t forget.
Random hilarity around my house lately --
“Don’t let him hit ya where the good lord split ya.” -- First time the Gamer had ever heard that expression and now he is rolling on the floor in non-ironic convulsive laughter.
