Facebook anonymous

My name is Tim...and...I'm a Facebook addict.
I guess I've been addicted for...oh...about a year-and-a-half. It started with friend requests from people I currently know, then pretty soon, people from my past became friends.
"This is great," I thought. "I can get caught up with all these friends I've lost touch with. Maybe we'll email each other every couple of months or so. Oh, look—they've posted some photos."
And hence ensued the genesis of my obsession.
Now, I need to know what everyone is doing at all times. I must witness what someone had for dinner last night. I have to know when coffee is necessary to get someone through their day. Couldn't sleep last night? Good to know. Tim likes this.
Therefore, as part of my recovery program, I must purge myself of some of my past Facebook statuses:
-"Going back to Charmin toilet paper. Western Family caused some problems."
-"Thought about getting a milkshake, but then thought about having to drive to get one, and decided not to have a milkshake, so I just had some Lucky Charms. Here's the photo."
-"Starting to think I'm not the father of my children."
-"Took a cold shower this morning. It was colder than a hot shower."
Okay, there. I feel lot better now. And actually, I don't think I'm quite ready for this recovery program yet. But thanks for listening.

  1. It's a little cold this morning. Maybe I should go outside to check the weather...decided not to check, because that toe I smashed on the door yesterday (see yesterday's status update) is hurting when I walk down the stairs...maybe I'll take a sweater to work with me...maybe I shouldn't go to work, because my toe might start hurting again...
