Meta updates and another short inquiry... Facebook

Somehow, I've gotten up to 3 sponsors. Thank you kindly to all of them. One is $2 for each hour I survive. As a result I am nearly at $200 raised for planned parenthood. Which makes me feel kinda fuzzy and happy. Apparently this already puts me in the top quarter of fundraisers for the event.

More over I'm pleased that of the original blogs committed to the process nearly 20% haven't lasted the first 5 hours. I'm not so pleased abut others dropping out.. I'm more pleased that I'm not one of them. This is kinda cool and very much an incentive for me to have better follow-thru.

Before the inquiry, I'd like to take a moment to talk about HELL TOYS

Most of what we buy for aiden_freeman comes from consignment shops. Effectively used toys and clothes. jnanacandra bought a toy for him. It turned out to be a HELL TOY

It is this rolling toy with little balls in it. So it makes a white noise-ish sound when rolled. This is not what makes it a HELL TOY. See, when jarred by a child it plays a digital recording of "The Farmer in the Dell" followed by a childs laugh. It also lights up. That being said.. the jarring sensor is broken. Sometimes it has a hair trigger. And I mean if someone across the room brushes their hair.. it goes off. Other times.... You can place kick it across the room and it doesn't make a sound.

I only bring this up because it is behind the sofa and randomly going off for no reason.



Now for the inquiry. Recently I stumbled (no, really, I don't no how I found the site) upon Facebook. I think it's recently been gobbled up by that acquirer of Web 2.0 Sixapart. (Yes, the same company that convinced brad that it wasn't selling out.)

Anyone else played with this site? Anyone else on it? How did you find it? how do you find it? What do you think of it?

Yes... I am a social networking whore.

And while I don't have your attention.. I'd like to introduce

asphyxi is my blogathon monitor. Her job is to basically report me to blogathon central if I stop posting. (At least that's the impression I get)

Everybody wave ;)

You can still sponsor me throughout the blogathon at:
