Facebook--- our tangled history:
About 3 or 4 years ago, I despised Facebook, Friendster, and even more so, MySpace (because hairy, european men started stalking me). Then I grew to love Facebook because all my highschool friends were joining, and it was like a virtual
Part I--- advertisements:
For Part I, let's start with the advertisements. It's the least funny, and I like to think I'm funny, so let's get it out of the way.
It's like facebook "knows" me. A little too well. When I bought tickets to the Sex in the City movie from fandango, it knew!!! and automatically posted it to my profile! WTF! Scary!

And what the hell is this? What does a 3-day super sale have to do with a dog balancing perfume on its nose?! However, if Macy's was going to offer circus animal tricks while I shopped, maybe a cute monkey to follow me around, that would be a huge draw for me:
Although lately, they must be gearing up for my "usual" holiday weight gain, because I'm getting ads like this one. Does anyone else think this is just plain whacked out!?!? And this totally looks like Nicole Richie with Eva Mendes' hair and Cindy Crawford's mouth and bronze tan... does it not??
Facebook, you're really getting on my last nerve with these nonsensical, invasive, and perverse ads!!!
In conclusion, please stop stalking me.
Thank you very much.
THE DAILY SASS:
