worlds are colliding

Do u remember the Seinfeld episode where George is VeRY upset that his fiance Susan is becoming part of his 'friends world'. He felt mixing Relationship George with friend George would be catastrophic! His Worlds Colliding! I think there was a lex luther reference there too? (bone.. help me out!!) Well... I reluctantly joined up for facebook. I don't know why, 'cause I kept resisting and insisting it was part of my kids worlds and i Just didn't belong there. I declined so many invitations to befriend my...friends. Well, there was one special friend I just couldn't say no to... so I am in this whole new world... let's call it 'Over There'. I began by only letting the blogging friends from 'over here' know about 'over there'. But, Like many new undertakings.. you get a little over zealous.. (speech bubble over my head here) 'Gee.. who else do I know that has facebook???' So I invite my cousin from "real life' to 'over there', and one of my husbands co-workers, Then... there was an old friend who I had declined a facebook invitation from several months back... so I invited her 'over there'. Then my childhood friend Linda who I've written several posts about..... (Still waiting to hear from her)..but I bet soon She will be 'over there' .... Then it dawns on me.... without even getting my kids worlds involved... My OWN worlds are colliding and I am already panicking over this most likely catastrophic collision!! I don't want many people in 'real life' world to find me 'over here'! Because, if they are 'over there', eventually I just know that will lead back to 'over here'. I've already felt like I've told way too many real lifers about 'over here' and it's been hindering me from writing ALL that is in my heart and on my mind...WHAT have I gotten myself into?? What did George Do? Do I need to fly backwards around the earth a few rotations like superman? Or just admit once again in the immortal words of Ralph Kramdon... I've got a BIG MOUTH!!

Omg I know exactly what you people over there are separate from my blog people! Wouldn't take a mental midget long to find me here, should they follow one of my friends who pretty much have open artist profiles and hope to have the whole world join them. I had been staying away from facebook for ages. Now it's only a matter of time before someone slips and mentions my blog name. I try to keep things on the down low because my ex is just too close to my number one girl on facebook....yeah I think you get my drift which is exactly the same as yours!! oh geesh this is a predicament. I have no photos over there, still people have tagged me. I asked one girl to take my photo down and she freaked out on me...she is in the extended family and just didn't get it.

Good luck with this one.
I'm almost tempted to take my facebook down.

Hugs Giggles

I haven't gotten involved with Facebook and I've been trying to figure out why I'm so reluctant to do it. For one thing, it sounds like a time suck, but I think that you've hit the nail on the head. It all sounds way too mixed up for me.

This made me giggle! I have trouble remembering which of my family and friends know me were....and worst still, which of the family I don't want knowing about my blog! I have two separate worlds's a strange situation but it keeps me sane sometimes!

Great post Lucy! xx Have a good weekend:)

I have been one world everywhere forever. My blog, facebook, twitter, whatever are all mixed together. It has been easier though I confess that there has been a time or two when I thought about starting an anonymous blog so I could just be someone else somewhere else if that makes sense. I may someday just cut loose :)

I have friends from over here over there... but... I DON'T post anything about my blog over there! Too risky!
