There are lots of truth in the belief that Facebook is killing casual blogging. I look back at my FB statuses written in the past year and realize at least 80% of them could have been made into blog posts, had I wanted or taken the time. To make up for my laziness, here are my year 2009 in Facebook status*:
*I took out some for privacy and other reasons

My Saturday was filled with yummy street food, miles of walking and silly chatters. In between those things I also got on a boat in Central Park with 3 Doctors, helped install a cat furniture, enjoyed some super delicious dishes from Wondee Siam’s Secret Thai menu…(the rest was cut off by Facebook’s new length limit)
DWTS has a very honest voting audience. You only need to have watched all 8 seasons to truly understand it.
Did they decide to start serving ice cream in the kitchen on the 1st day of the Weight Loss Competition just to torment the guys that are in it?
Turns out my solution to the Fried Brain Problem was playing through the last level of Enigmo while watching the last episode of Jay Leno at the same time. That plus 2 hours of PokerStars afterwards. My brain is very rested now.

Saw on Tumblr: “The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.”
says Jeanine tonight.
still savoring the street-vendor-award-winning German “soul” food lunch I just had… Some things just can’t be put into words… (though they almost always can be put into… … mouth?)
