Facebook has grown into a wonderful and useful tool used to connect with other people. It’s a great way to share pictures, links, stories, and just about anything with a group of ‘friends.’ What sucks is that it’s a great way to share pictures, links, stories, and just about anything with a group of ‘friends.’ I want to emphasize that what makes facebook work so well is exactly what makes it terrifyingly awful. Case in point: my new friend…ehhhh let’s call him Oliver. I met Oliver the other day at a pub. I was very excited to speak English with another person, so we had a beer. He was a grandfather and really liked talking about his recent vacation to Thailand. We finished our brews, and I said that I was going to head home. Before I left, we decided to connect through Facebook. I was even the one who suggested it. Yes, I’m an idiot. Mom and Dad, you can reprimand me all you want. I found his profile, added him, and headed home.
When I awoke the next morning, I checked my email, twitter, Instagram, and then finally, the book of faces.Holy cow–I kid you not, there were 22 unopened messages from my new friend. And they were all gold. Pieces of artwork that I will present to you–and unveil for the first time in all of their glory. Enjoy.
These are just a few of the masterpieces that have graced my inbox. I’m taking a book from the page of diamond-people and only releasing a few in order to create a motif of rarity among these unarguably breathtaking gems. Maybe I’ll release another if you follow my blog or mail me a check for 20 bucks/100 Kč.
