Department of "oh hell, yeah"

Dr. Crazy nails it:
[Facebook] for me is like a dream where you show up at a bar and all of the ghosts of your past are milling around and either blabbing about their children (mainly high school and elementary school people) or leaving random comments to you about your current life (guys from your misspent youth), while at the same time all of your current friends are there and look confused by who all these other weirdos are, and also your family is there shouting (in all capital letters) over the din.

I agree: I love that image!

Let's just note for the record that I'm Fb friends with exactly zero of my colleagues at my institution, which would only add to the madness, and not in a good way.

I've got to say, I'm totally proud of the passage that you quoted, as I feel like it's perhaps the most real thing I've written ever :)

It was so good to hang with you at MLA, sister! Hope your reentry into the semester is a good one!

Wow, yeah. Whoever you are, Dr. Crazy, I agree.

Awesome. And if you add in random guy you knew in high school and haven't spoken to in almost 20 years posting "Thong Drop" gifts on your wall (with picture!) (eeeeew!) then you have the perfect picture of mine.
