Here is an excerpt from an online course i took this evening...

In case you can't read, it says, "Perhaps the most embarrassing fixed object collission is when you run over a fire hydrant. The fire hydrant is just one example of a fixed object that is often struck and damaged."

the neverending adventures in elizabeth's health

2004 - bronchitis with a fever so high i fainted and started hallucinating

2005 - the doctors gave me a pregnancy test without asking me if there was a chance i was pregnant. had they asked me, they wouldn't have given me the test unless they thought i was actually the next virgin mary.

2006 - the meningitis fiasco resulting in a CT-scan, two spinal taps and eventually a colonoscopy. that was fun.

and what would 2007 be without a good case of a growth in my thyroid? biopsy next week, i'll keep y'all posted.

my 50th post

this calls for a celebration! how about a virtual trip to flea market montgomery? "livin' rooms, bedrooms, dinettes, oh yeah. you can find 'em at the market, we talkin' bout flea market...montgomery."

and now with facebook's fairly recent gift feature (ok, so i'm blogging about facebook a lot, big deal), you can even give someone a little miniature sammy stephens! "it's just like, it's just like, a mini-mall!"

thanks for keeping me informed, facebook

they have taken it to a new level.

a few months ago, the people at facebook decided to implement a new feature called "News Feed" in which you are informed of all your friends' actions. For example, if my friend 'Bobby' starts dating someone and decides to change his relationship status on facebook, i will have a note in my news feed that says, "Bobby is now listed as In a Relationship with Ashley." i also find out when friends add new photos, when they update their profiles and when they join or leave groups among other things. there was a big revolt against it. a lot of facebookers were angry because it made facebook-stalking a little bit too easy. millions of people signed online petitions, wrote articles and formed groups (on facebook, ironically) protesting it. it was the
biggest and most organized protest of this generation. am i proud of that? well, that's a rant for another post.

what's this new level? facebook has decided to inform me of MY OWN ACTIONS. ?!?!? tonight when i logged in I had a little note telling me that i was on facebook, reading my news feed. thanks, facebook....you're always looking out for me.

strangest part about it all? i was out at 11:19 pm, not on facebook.
