Sigh. I can't keep up with all this modern crap.
My niece just sent me an invitation to Tagged, one of those social networking sites. I also got one from my cousin last week, but I ignored it. However, I haven't heard from my niece in months--and she's deaf so calling her is way complicated--so I decided to click on it, try the registration process, and see what it's all about.
But of course, the instructions are virtually nonexistent. And somehow I ended up sending Tagged invitations to everyone in my email address book.
So what's the big deal?
I haven't cleaned out my email address book in ages, if ever. Every literary agent whom I've ever emailed a query to is in there. (AOL automatically enters people you email.) Every editor I've ever worked for is in there. An ex boyfriend is in there. A friend who unceremoniously dumped me without explanation a month ago is in there. A couple of people whose relationships with me have broken down are still in there. My congresswoman and senators are in there (one of whom happens to be Barak Obama). Several customer service reps of companies I use are in there.
And every single one of them just got a pathetic email from me saying, "Will you be my friend?"
Just take me out and shoot me. Now. Please.
