Facebook is going to get me fired

April 23, 2008 at 12:34 pm 5 comments

I’ve got at least six Scrabulous games going (including a few inactive games). I’m constantly trying to find the perfect quote for my status. I have a continuous wall quote-off with several friends. (Different shows for different friends, of course. I’ve gone through all three-and-a-half seasons of The Office, the first four seasons of The West Wing, a few key episodes of How I Met Your Mother, and even some My So-Called Life. Quoting shows makes for awesomely hilarious and random wall posts. Especially when some people put things about certain other people being on probation. For the record, I’m not now, nor have I ever been put on probation for peeing on a church.)

Now Facebook has added a chat feature, and kegger and I have been chatting all day.

It’s not like we don’t email constantly or share a blog or anything. You would think we hadn’t talked to each other in months. But the sad thing is, we’ve been emailing while we’ve been chatting.

I can’t get any work done. I’ve got a newsletter to print, a bulletin to put together, a ton of other stuff to do, but all I’m doing is goofing off on Facebook.

I’m so going to get fired.

    LOL! I hear your overwhelming cries! With this world moving so fast with technology and this chat, that chat, web 2.0 etc one can feel like it is just too much of the world, lol!

    When I feel this way I ask myself is this going to make me any $?
    If that doesn’t work use a timer of some sort to keep you on point.

    Take breaks from your work and stick to the timer it will be hard at first but as you say you have deadlines and if money is involved well you know what to do!!!

    The sad thing, amelie, is that I’m still more productive than half the people at work even though I’m playing Scrabulous and e-mailing you/chatting with you constantly.

    I would feel left out, except I’ve told myself I will not start this ridiculous facebook chat until finals are over with.

    Emails + chatting? Impressive.

    Aw, don’t feel left out brooklyn! We love you, too. And our chatting was in no way productive. It was mostly about the words we spelled in Scrabulous (like penis and bi. kegger totally spelled both of those, and hardly got any points at all for them. She goes for the dirty words and I go for the points. That’s why I always win.)

    brooklyn, once your finals are over, you’ll definitely have to participate in the chatfest. And play Scrabulous with us. amelie does always win, but yesterday I spelled “porno.” You’ve gotta admit, that’s pretty impressive.
