LJI:0 Introduction
I don't have a Facebook account, which these days occasionally makes me wonder if I actually exist.

Back in the days when social networks on the internet were still relatively new I had joined several, most of which have now been lost in the pixels of long ago and broken code.

On one of those sites a good friend from college, one of my roommates senior year, posted a testimonial that I've kept written down on paper in a safe place.  It reads:

"Dear, sweet, genuine, intelligent, beautiful, hard-ass bitch, and a dear old friend."

I try and live up, or sometimes down, to that sentence every day.

Not having a Facebook account is an interesting line to start with. I think it says a lot about a person - or at least opens up a lot of questions about them.

I love how solid & concise this intro was. It all worked together - in of course a very unassuming way - really well.

Not being on Facebook comes up a surprising amount, from people realizing I didn't see an invite to their party or really don't know their latest news. Honestly I was lazy at first, then by the time I was thinking it was worth joining the privacy backlash started and I decided to stay out.

Thanks for the kind words!
