Don't blog about facebook, or facebook about blogging.

A simple enough rule.

Here are some other of my personal blog rules:
1) Don't focus on the kids every minute.
2) Don't give advice.
3) Make it personal, but not, you know, personal hygiene personal.
4) Don't talk politics.*

OK, so without blogging politics here, let me say I broke my facebook rule about not talking politics over there.  (My facebook rules are shockingly similar to my blog rules except for the hygiene part.) On facebook, I wrote a tirade and 40+ comments later, I deleted a friend.  I will obsess about deleting a friend for awhile.  It was warranted, but it's not comfortable. I want to be all cool and cavalier and all fuck that shit about it, but I can't. Oy, I hate hand wringing.  New blog rule, #5:  No hand wringing.  (shit - I do that all the time over here -- now what will I write about? wringing, wringing)

*I debate this rule a lot.  I like talking politics, just not sure this is the spot for it. (wringing)

Will somebody please get that?

One of my favourite quotes of all time comes from "A Perfect Day for Bananafish", "She was a girl who for a ringing phone dropped exactly nothing."
