Intelligent Social Networking

You have to love Facebook's ingenuity. We have all seen the fun ads along the sidebar that pull information from our profile in an attempt to send us ads that will be most relevent. After changing my relationship status to "In a Relationship" these are the ads that FB thought I would find most helpful:


How to Entertain Kids Who Don't Know Better

I was trying to figure out how long the State of the Union Address was going to be but was watching two boys and couldn't get online. So I, being resourceful, texted Chacha and asked it. Unfortnately Chaha didn't understand my question so I wasn't able to find out. But one of my boys asked me what I was doing and I told him that my phone was magic and knows everything so I was asking it a question. The older boy said, "Ooo, aak it if Will likes you!" (Will is a cute boy I told them I liked) I did and Chacha responded with "If Will makes eye contact, smiles, starts conversations & flirts with you then he is definitle interested!" The boys thought that was pretty funny so they told me to ask it what their favorite ice cream is. I knew Chacha probably wouldn't know so instead I sent myself a text that said "Oreo with chocolate sprinkles." and handed the phone to the one that could read moments before a text arrived that said "Oreos with chocolate sprinkles." We spent the better part of the next half hour asking my magic phone questions. They think I am so cool.

LOTR - Longest Movie Ever

I will always remember the first time a boy held my hand. I was 14 and a bunch of us went to go see the first Lord of the Rings, including my "boyfriend." We sat next to each other and the butterflies were just swirling. Somehow, one of us had made sure that the arm rest was up so there was nothing in between us. Despite this, we still sat as far from each other as possible because clearly we didn't want the other person to know we liked them - that would just ruin everything. Sometime during the first quarter of the movie I moved my hand to my leg. After about ten minutes I noticed he had done the same thing. By the time the first third of the movie was over, our pinkies were only an inch apart. I was totally elated. I had never been this close to a boy's hand before. About halfway through the movie, our pinkies made contact! That was such a bold move, we had to stay there for a while to calm our beating hearts and make sure that the other person wasn't going to suddenly change their minds and retract their pinky. Throughout the rest of the movie, his hand slowly inched over mine and just as Samwise was giving his motivational speech of encouragement to Mr. Frodo. . . he officially held my hand. Fireworks went off, bells rang, all manner of fourteen year old happiness went on. Two minutes later Frodo and Sam ventured off into the distance, he let go of my hand and we stood up and walked out of the theater.

I don't think I have to remind you how long LOTR is.
