Sometimes I wonder why I bother reading facebook statuses. 90% of them are super annoying. Especially the ones that include TMI, or consist of whining about illness - complete with detailed symptoms, or my pet peeve - people complaining about their kids on fb (maybe they aren't behaving because those parents are spending all your time on facebook.... just an idea?) other annoying examples include the ones which are fake, braggy, projecting an image that is nowhere close to reality... but I digress.
Every so often there's a brilliant status update that reminds me of why I wade through these loads of other garbage... and more often than not, the ones which fall into this latter, special category which generally make me cackle with glee, are written by my college friend, G.
Don't you love it when someone who lives in the burbs, has kids, and whose biggest challenge and excitement in life is programming their pvr proclaims adamantly "I won't own a minivan!" Good call - I'm sure the shape of the box you're driving is really holding you back from being Indiana Jones or Bear Grylls. Take a look in the mirror there stretchpants.
Seriously I love this. I also love statuses which announce births or other fun life events, tell hilarious stories of kids saying the darndest things, contain news references I would have otherwise missed, spark interesting debate, are helpful, or are just all around hilarious.
Anyway totally not Brazil related obviously, but just thought I'd share.
G, I nominate you to teach the world a course called "Creative Status Updates 101" - sadly needed!
