um, oops

So I joined Facebook today, primarily as a way to keep track of Mindy (my sister)'s love life. I can't keep it all straight or remember who all she's taking about, and I thought it would be fun to be able to look at their profiles. Turns out that when I joined, Facebook automatically sent an e-mail to every single one of my hotmail contacts (including my business contacts, mailing list, etc!) inviting them to join! Yikes! So if you were the recipient of such an e-mail, I'm really sorry. And a little embarrassed.

aahhhh... the internets.

Always handy for making you feel like an idiot!
Luckily for you - this kind of thing has happened to all of us! I wouldn't worry too much about it....

I hope you enjoyed Can't Buy Me Love after all these years of missing out - I hope the expectation wasn't too high - I remember watching "fame" again, and I couldn't believe how lame it was. Such a pity.....

One day I was searching for friends on myspace and I came across the page that takes all contacts from an address book and asks if you would like to invite them all. As I pressed the cursor and said, "Nope," I sent everyone an invitation. I guess it pays to look at what you're doing, or what I'm doing.

Don't be ashamed...I've done several business contacts through facebook, so maybe is not that bad ;)
