Okay, okay, I'm jumping off the bridge, so sue me.
Say what you will, but it is another way to promote my blog. I like it when people visit, and I like it when they leave comments even better. I'm weird that way.
So, now I have a MySpace page. What next?
Well, the first thing I did was to change that boring layout it comes with. There are literally hundreds of sites with thousands of free layouts, each more horrid than the last. I ended up with a blinding headache after scouring site after site filled with layouts that look like they were made by someone having a bad trip in a Hallmark store. Even the so-called "clean and simple" ones make Austin Powers look like the epitome of good taste. What the hell is wrong with these people? I know MySpace is the teen haven of the modern world, but does that mean the rest of us have to live with garish, tacky layouts that look like some sort of teenage bedroom collage?
I finally got fed up, and pasted on the first template I could find that didn't hurt my eyes, although I wasn't too thrilled that it came from a site that has the word "pimp" in its name. But I was too tired to worry about that, so I quit for the day.
This morning I had my first friend request waiting for me. But wait...it's from some 18 year-old guy called Adrian, whose picture proudly displays him sans shirt. Now what could he possibly want with me, a married woman, who's twice his age? I distinctly remember checking the boxes stating that I'm married, have kids, and am only looking for friends, so what's up with this guy? If this were Catgirl's page, I would be seriously worried, but lucky for me she doesn't have one yet.
Well, whatever his motives, I'll check him as a friend for now, since at the moment I only have Tom, who's the default friend they give you when you sign up. I guess they don't want people to feel lonely, so he's a sort of a pity friend.
So, here I am, a
There are no people jumping off bridges at Central Snark. Well, there might be, but at least they're funny while they're doing it.
2012 update: I erased my MySpace page ages ago...because, seriously, who's on MySpace these days? You can always look for me at The Rain in Spain Facebook page, because that's the place to be.
