A facebook detox anyone?

with 4 comments

Hold the front page!  British workforce productivity surges as bored office workers all over the UK are forced into actually doing some work.  Sadly, this isn’t the first signal of the end of the recession – this is the news that Facebook is down…causing panic and confusion for many people who insist on living the majority of their lives virtually.

If you are one of those social media addicts who cannot help but log onto their Facebook account every 10 minutes to update the rest of your friends list with your latest banal thought, or the ‘cute thing’ that your dog/cat/child/boyfriend just did…then I beg you…please please please try not to think too hard about all of those little lost Farmville sheep going unattended, the missed poker games and those holiday snaps of your ex girlfriend which are going unstalked.

You’ll only drive yourself insane and they will probably still be there when they eventually sort the server problem out (unless they’ve deleted your whole virtual kingdom by accident of course…<insert evil laugh here>)

UPDATE:  Facebook came back on…

Jade Goody: The Musical

with 2 comments

Yes, you read correctly.  Apparently, a musical is going to be made about Jade Goody’s life.

[What’s that I hear?  Could that be a cash register ringing?]

I have deliberately avoided blogging about anything to do with Jade as I don’t want to –  in any way – add to the media circus that manifested around her life and death.  (And also because, if I start ranting – I may well never stop)

But what I will say about this news story is this:
