Facebook...

I have recently been sucked into the supermassive black hole that is Facebook.

And I can't escape it.

Yes, it's a great way to keep current with family and friends. Yes, it's a way to catch up with people you haven't seen in years. It's definitely a useful resource, but...

Then there are the games. The sweet, addictive games.

I cannot escape the pull of Mafia Wars, and Farmville has hold of me and will not let go.

Do I need help?

Yes, you need help.

Would you like me to fertilize your farms?

Welcome to the club.

Farmville is one of the greatest games ever made. And it is indeed a black hole. But it's way better than Myspace.

MotorCop said...

Dude. Run. Now. Pirates and Mafia Wars sucked away more valuable time. It's the poor man's XBox 360...and the graphics suck!

Yes, you need help. When you find a source of said help, please let me know so I can send my wife there as well. ;)

Mafia Wars is so entertaining. When my LEO husband came home one night I said to him "I killed someone tonight". There was a long pause before he said anything, then he asked "in the game?" To which I replied "Of course honey." I had to laugh. I am not addicted to the game, I can quit anytime I want....

Firelady said...

I'm not sure which is worse, knowing I'll be sucked into the games if I join, or my not-so-irrational fear of tying my face, name, and email together on he web.

911 and the Randomness.. said...

Ok, so was that your cow that roamed to my farm? LOL no, you dont' need help yet..

Damsel Underdressed said...

Have you discovered the "cop gifts" yet? :)

KC5FM said...

Yes, I'd say you and a number of my colleagues need help.

Maybe I can get a 12-step program group set up on Facebook.

What do you think of THAT? :)

Meadowlark said...

Let me know when you're a level 180-something Mafioso. In Moscow. Then you'll see TRUE addiction! :)

Triple Beeper said...

I don't think you need help... but the best way for me to get out of the games after I got sucked in was taking a boating/camping trip (you know, no wifi or anything) where I couldn't play for a few days. Once I got out of the cycle, it was easy to not get sucked back in.

TK @ Gallery 713 said...

Nah, just revel in the addiction. That's what I do with Cafe World & Happy Aquarium.

the observer said...

It ain't called "crackbook" for nuthin'. I personally have stayed away. The internet is addictive enough.

Officer "Smith" said...

Meadowlark: I'm only level 160-something, give me a few more weeks.

Firelady: That's why my profile is only visible to friends.

Damsel: Yes, and other cop type things.

Others: Yes, I'd love to link to you all and be able to work each other's farms and mafias. If it wasn't for trying to keep my true identity and my pseudonym separate....

Black Ice said...

Whoops...sorry about the multicomments. Got trapped in an endless cluster of logging in, verifying and wondering why my internet was acting up. D'oh!

Not a Granny said...

Love Farmville...have you tried Fishville yet? Not quite as attention requiring! LOL..Then there is Country Life...Sigh...and the ever popular Farm Town.

TheBronze said...

Just say "No!" to Facebook apps!

Beat And Release said...

I'm just amazed at how many people I know. I do get annoyed by those game notices and invitations. PITA, IMO.

Jean said...

Too bad I cannot lure you into being my neighbor in my Farmville!! I don't think you need help as I'm also addicted... although I sometimes wishes facebook doesn't exist as I have two toddlers to raise...

*Goddess* said...

FARMVILLE?! Gawd, one of *those* people:) I'm thoroughly convinced the only people who like farmville are people who have never had to work on a REAL farm...

Front Porch Society said...

I just started Facebook, too, about a week ago. My sister and mom dragged me into doing it. I don't play the games...but I have reconnected with a ton of old college friends. :)

Corrinne said...

I agree! I am so addicted to Farmville it is sad.... Too bad for that whole anonymous things, because I would make a great neighbor =) I was a reluctant joiner, but everyone at work played and... *sigh* Now I'm beating all of them lol I loooove it.
