Something Completely Non Sequitur

Hello again, everyone! I hope you all had a nice Memorial Day weekend.

Well, it would seem that it's time for me to continue with this blog-writing endeavor of mine. My topic today circles around that ever-popular social networking site: Facebook.

I'm a bit of a newbie to Facebook, having just joined in January of this year. For a while I was not very impressed. Sure, it's a nice way to stay in touch with your friends and such, but it seemed rather boring, with not much else to do.

...And then I discovered Flair.

Flair is, without a doubt, a wicked mechanism designed specifically to make me spend hours upon hours staring at my computer screen, browsing seemingly endless pages of these tiny circular accessories, and then continue to spend even more time meticulously arranging them on my board - which is far too small, by the way - therefore never getting anything productive, (like drawing, writing, or actually taking care of my household chores,) finished.

(Below is a screenshot I took showing the current flair on my board. Although I'm sure by tomorrow it will already be inaccurate, as I will have changed things around, swapped old out for new, etc....)

To be honest, I'm not really sure what it is I find so appealing about it. After all, it isn't really anything special, and yet I still spend some of my time glancing over it every day. My best guess would be that I love the freedom it gives you to express things that you like. Everything from funny sayings to quotes to current fandoms - the latter of which being what I mostly showcase - it truly gives you the ability to show off who you are in a colorful and interesting way.

...Or maybe I just enjoy shiny things. Hard to tell.

Alright, one more quick thing and then I will say adieu for now...

Please excuse me as I continue to drool over this film, but I cannot help myself.

(Also, Zachary Quinto.)

  1. What a fun post. It's about time I saw my competition. That Flair does indeed look addicting. I have no recourse except to beg you to not introduce me to its charms! ox Mom
