So Facebook showed me this picture today:
I’ve known my Redflare for a lot longer than that.
I don’t know why this rubbed me the wrong way, I think because Facebook is trying to claim that it’s somehow special and important in my life.
My Redflare is, and I’ve known her since August of 1990 just as I wrote about in my throwback posts (one and two).
I don’t need some stupid website tracking “milestones” that it decides to make up.
I don’t know, maybe others really do celebrate these things. Perhaps my kids will with their spouses… but I’d rather celebrate the days that are important to me.
I’ve scheduled tweets about it for tomorrow, but as of 9/14 I’m turning off FB auto updating from twitter. If you follow the blog primarily from Facebook be sure you go and like it. I’ll continue posting new posts to twitter as I’ve always done.
