A Defriend a day

We made it safely to Chicago for this Casual Furniture Trade Show.  [Interestingly, "casual furniture" is defined as stuff that can get rained on.]  Benji drove almost the whole way, while i realized i cant quite do the “extrem schwer” Sudoku that Premin gave me (the very hard ones are just fine tho).  We are here to sell hammocks and evaluate if we want to keep spending $25K plus to do this event.  More thoughts on this in some days.

I’ve started trying to defriend a person or two a day from Facebook.  I tend to be a bit liberal in accepting friend requests.  If someone looks like they are doing anything worthwhile or whimsical at all, has some friends of mine whos judgement i think is reasonable or especially curious.  i will say yes.

But if they have lots of unoriginal happy birthday msgs, or lots of trip reports from their european vacation which look like we would not have much to do with each other, or if there is a long list of TV shows they love and not much political or clever in their profile, i will cut them.

Nothing personal.  They might be wonderful people, have charming lives, be doing good and lovely things in the world.  But we are not friends, the social media does not create a relationship.

So i have 648 friends today on Facebook.  Two less than yesterday.
