Has it really come to this?

My friend Karen clued me in the other day to her MySpace site. I never really considered getting a MySpace site, but Karen is cool, and she has one, so I figured what the heck.

I just started it, and I don't really know what the hell I am doing, but if you also have a MySpace account and you want to be added as a friend, here is my bare bones site:

I don't have a lot of time to work on it right now, but I will get to it eventually. After all, I have a little more time on my hands these days :)

I am not sure if you can add yourself as a friend, or if I have to do it. I haven't been able to figure out how to add myself as a friend to Karen's site yet. Maybe I'll ask my friend Robin. I think she knows a lot about it.

Or if any of you can clue me in, I would be grateful.

MySpace. I wonder what's next. Orgies? Cockfights? Bare knuckle boxing?

Too much free time might not be a good thing for me.

You go to the person's site and say "Add as Friend" and then if you have email notification, it will tell you you have a new MySpace mail. I have myspace as well. I will add you to my friends and you can visit me. :)

Oh, and watch out for the weirdos.

Yeah what Lynda said. You will get a message on your MySpace that says "so and so wants to be your friend" then you can approve or deny them.

You can google "free myspace layouts" and jazz up your site also. My siblings use this one:

MySpace is about as reliable as Blogger though, just so you know. ;-)

One of my friends was heavy into My Space and made me join. I couldn't get into it. It was to creepy. I don't even remember what my screen name was.

Don't leave us for the dark side. My Space, bad, blogger not as bad.

I have a Myspace and I went to yours and clicked "add as friend" the next time you log onto your Myspace, it will tell you that you have a "friends request" that's where ya click add or accept or something like that. :) welcome to the insanity that is known as Myspace! haha

you better watch out for the pervs! myspace is evil

I refuse to start another myspace page. I had one for like five minutes and every freak on the internet contacted me. One weirdo asked to purchase a pair of my underwear. WTF?

BTW, I had an injury so I'm now just checking blogs and found out about your job. I don't know what to say other than that I've been reading your blog a long time and never seen anything that would make me think you disliked your job. It's completely ridiculous that they fired you. Good luck in the future and I'm sorry if I started the pity party again:)

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Lynda--Well if I am going to watch out for the weirdos, how am I going to add you to my friends :)

Ginviren--Ooh, I can jazz it up? I sense a new obsession coming on!

Libragirl--Oh, I'm not going to blog on it or anything. Actually, I am really not sure why I am doing it...

Tense Teacher--I know. Pathetic, right?

Michele--Well, I'm not a teen...

Sodapop--I added you! I like insanity!

D--I KNOW, right? I think I am temporarily insane about the job thing...

Katt--Come on...join me...

It's only evil if you let it be evil. I originally got on there to get in touch with some old friends. I have since added a few more friends from the blogosphere. I don't accept anyone as a friend if I have not exchanged an email or chatted with online at one time or another.

I have gotten some freaky ass messages and I've publicly mocked them on my blog haha particularly the 23 year old college student who wanted to be my human toilet (GAH!)

:) :)

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

T--So what I am hearing is, your panties are not for sale?

Sodapop--So what I am hearing is, when we come out to Vegas, you won't let me be your human toilet?

8:19 PM  
Anonymous Sodapop said...

That my friend would be EXACTLY what you're hearing ;) I'm not that much of a freak hahaha

Soda Pop--Me neither. So...the other way around? :)

Katt--LMFAO! Join us, damn it! Resistance is futile!

Teri--I would never meet men in a strange place. Now if they would come to ME...

Pissy--I know, I don't know what motivates me to do these things...

Mike--I know. Am I not cool anymore?

Geek--I like weirdos. I like you, don't I?

My son has a MySpace space but Mom isn't allowed to know how it is. Not, you don't, but that's ok! Can you spy for me?

12:31 AM  
Blogger snackiepoo said...

I added ya.

I have no idea why I have one either; I hate being a follower but the music is so good...seriously, it is for the music...not to spy on exes or anything like that shit.

The computer I'm using has been screwed up.... I was able to sign on but it kept freezing up. I've added you as my friend on MySpace. I'm excited that you're on. :)

12:55 AM  
Blogger Lynda said...

Well, some weirdos are ok. ;) I knew you would say something about that.

Only one weirdo per friends list. Your quota is filled, my friend!

BTW, when I joined myspace, my mom said to me, "Isn't that where you go when you want to date people?" ACK!

Blogger Belinda said...

OK, I been wanting someone to 'splain this to me for a long time, and now I finally know someone well enough to ask. I know lots of people who have MySpace pages AND blogs. How come? What's the point? Just curious, is me.

2:15 AM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

ANO--So are you going to add ME? LOL

Lorraine--Ooh, undercover work. I'm in!

Snackipoo--There is music? I really need to start paying attention.

Peaches--This is all your fault! LOL

Lynda--My quota is full? Which one is the weirdo?

Finally a new friend list was looking a little pathetic.

Blogger Shelli said...

I hate myspace, but I have one because my kids do and I need it so I can monitor their sites which are set to private, so you need to be a member and be approved to see them. I requested you to be my friend, but I rarely ever check that site, so if you leave me something there, I probably will never see it. I am with Libragirl. myspace sucks so bad I refuse to capitalize it. IMHO

2:53 AM  
Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

Luin--I will totally be your friend!

Shelli--Well, it's too late to go back now...

I tried MySpace for a few weeks. Definitely not for me.

I akin MySpace with AOL. In other words, it's like MySpace vs other blogging methods like AOL vs other IP's.

MySpace gives everything in a nice neat little package and you essentially never have to drift out of it. It's super duper easy to use. There are tons and tons of things in it and you can surf for hours.

However, I fear one can never expand beyond it. You're confined to the MySpace way. All creativity is MySpace controlled.

Yes, it's a lovely method for getting scads of friends together on one site. That is very true and for that reason alone, I recommend it. I'd even entertain reopening my account just because YOU are there (OMG, a groupie!) Beyond that, it do not care for it.

And that's the same way I feel about AOL.

Thanks for being my MySpaceFriend, Fabby! Now, with you, Marty and Tom (the MySpace moderator who apparently is everybody's friend) I "already" have 3 friends... Oh, and that married guy from The Netherlands that invited me for "tea"... guess he doesn't drink coffee

Blogger Shelli said...

I'm just saying. I still love you, even if you are a myspacer. I guess I am too, technically.

Blogger Suze said...

Isn't that the place where you reveal your self? So make me a friend please. ;)

Blogger Karl said...

OK, I tried to add you but you have it set to private? And apparently Fabulous isn't your REAL last name. Must be your middle name or something. At any rate, add me, will ya?

Blogger The Muser said...

I'm a weirdo too, MrFab. I started reading your blog after reading CP's blog, and I just added you as a friend to my MySpace page. I'm kind of a perv though, so watch out.
