How lovely to meet with [livejournal.com profile] zhenzhi in person, after first meeting her here. It was a delight to both of us to discover we live on opposite sides of the same valley, so it was only a matter of time before we either bumped into each other in town or arranged to get together.

We arranged it, and had a picnic lunch under a pandannus tree with her son and their dog, both of whom are beautiful and friendly. It was great, and easy, as if we'd known each other ages.

I have a few new friends lately, so it's time I let you all know about [livejournal.com profile] fridayhaiku 

If any of you feel inspired, it would be interesting to have a few more participants!  (And readers, of course, since current participants often produce wonderful stuff which deserves wide appreciation.)

While I'm posting links ... if you're on twitter you can follow me at SnakyPoet and if you're on facebook you can find me here.

I have to admit I'm having a very different Facebook experience the second time around. This is largely because lots of my old poet friends from Melbourne days are there now. There's been some kind of explosion while I've been away!

No such thing as sneaking on unnoticed and slipping quietly away again when my task was done. No sooner was I there than a teenage real-life friend, my older son and even [livejournal.com profile] captlychee pounced on me and added me as their friend. Now I KNOW everyone in the world is on facebook! None of them was there before I deactivated my account last October.

An old friend who was on my list before the deactivation has poked me. I have refrained from returning the compliment. Another invited me to join a list of treelovers, and I did that because if you get enough people on it some unknown person will plant a tree in Africa ... or so they say. Seemed worth taking a punt on, and no-one has asked for any money yet.  My beloved firstborn is playing some interesting-looking word games which I might join in with if I get bored and leisured enough. And someone I also know on MySpace suggested there could be Haiku on Friday on facebook! Hmmm, hafta ponder that one very deeply. Maybe I'll ask her to create it, mwahahaha.

Meanwhile I imagine me and the captain huddled in a corner muttering darkly about the strange other denizens of this weird place. (Not THIS place, that one: facebook.)

Stuck myself back on the dreaded facebook, that's what. That which I swore I'd never do. "Never say never."

There was a reason. I needed to contact someone I used to know, and didn't know how, so I Googled her. That was the only place her name was to be found. So I reactivated the old account -– and it's all true what they tell you: facebook doesn't delete your details; which is no doubt unethical in principle, but in this case was very convenient. I bet I'm not the first to find that out! Not sure the person on facebook is indeed the one I'm after, but have sent a message and expect I'll soon find out. Then I might very well slip quietly away again.

I think I must be the only person in the world not on facebook. Oh no, there is at least one other, who wrote a blog detailing his long saga to try and get off. You can get off easily enough, but your details will still be there waiting to be reactivated with a click. Should you want to be removed completely, that is very difficult.  For more details, read 2504 Steps to Closing Your Facebook Account

And why should that matter?  Well, if you're a writer, just don't post your writings there! This is why: Writing for Facebook
