Off the top of my head

- had some friends from college visit this weekend. It was very nice to see them, but they definitely tired me out! We were always out and walking around and doing stuff. It was good to see that I've regained strength and can do these things without wanting to fall over, but by the time they left last night I was ready to veg.

- still processing the Lost series finale and deciding what I thought about it. Yes, I am a Lost fan. True to form the show of course left more questions than it answered, so many plotlines were just left hanging without any explanation, but a lot of elements of the ending were very satisfying. I like that they didn't force an "everything happens for a reason" type of ending on us, that would have ticked me off. We make our own reasons.

- over the course of the past few months I've realized that at least four people have defriended me on facebook. I don't really care, because none of them were ever close friends or anyone I am currently in touch with, but it kind of bothers me that they went through the trouble of deciding to remove me from their friend list. Do they have something against me or am I just too boring to stalk on facebook? I mean really, why would you go to the trouble of unfriending someone who is just sort of benignly on your friend list?

- we finally have sun! And now it's too hot! Just can't win when it comes to the weather.

I do that (unfriending) every once in a while because it bothers me that I have 360 friends, twenty of whom I never talked to much in the first place and who I'll never talk to again, and who I don't feel like blocking on my news feed either. It's just a way of feeling a little bit more sincere for me... it's actually pretty hard to do though.

It's hot here too! 87 degrees yesterday!

This is exactly why I don't like Facebook. How do you defriend someone? On line it,s so easy, a click of a button... in real life it's more difficult. Okay, I'm not going to rant on FB but I still hate it.

I kind of watched the final episode of Lost but I was not a fan, so I was lost (ah ah!) pretty fast. I feel that I'm just going to read the summary on Wikipedia.

It was 90 degrees here today and the air conditioning had to go on so our pug dog can cool off! Nothing louder than a hot pug.

Eileen - okay, fair enough, but I think I'm a pretty innocuous facebook friend, as you know!

Zhu - if you have a couple hundred spare hours to spend watching the whole series of Lost then I recommend it, otherwise, yeah, just read the summary.

GYSC - I love pugs! Poor little guy must have been miserable in all the heat and humidity.
