Social networking

So Thing#4 is all about expanding our social networks. Well, (insert your favorite deity here) knows, I sure need it. All I did was list a few favorite books, and lo and behold! Up pop thousands of people who also love these books! I'm glad I'm sitting down. Not only do they like the same books, but they also listed other interests that match my own. This is all pretty new for someone who has always been comfortable with only a handful of close friends.

Now suddenly, I'm able to check out comments from people who have traveled to Iceland to get a jump on my surprise trip. I've used Craigslist to find my apartment and first pet African Clawed Frog. Now I'll have to get that Facebook account....
