You're all signing up for Google+ aren't you? I've heard it in the news. I've seen it on Facebook. Once again, Google does an "invitation-only" rollout, and we all *must* have it. It's creating quite a buzz. Which, I'd like to point out, Google Buzz did not do.
Here's the thing. If you all become Google+ peeps, I have to as well. Because you will stop communicating via Facebook or text. Even now, many of you ignore my emails and phone calls all together, glancing askance at me when I mention it, as if I just suggested communicating through carrier pigeons.
So these days, if for example, the Worship Team needs to know that we're going to have a guest chimp on bongos on Sunday morning, I send a group email ... and an identical group Facebook message ... and then I text several people to say, "check your email" ... and one or two I have to personally collar with full eye contact in order to be assured the message has been received.
And then I am mocked for sending too many messages. "Sheesh Patti, we know about the chimp already."
And now you're all throwing Google+ into the mix.
Well that's just dandy.
PS I joined Gmail before anyone else I know, and I would like to inquire as to why I have not received an invitation to Google+. I can only assume it was lost in the mail during the recent Canada Post strike/lockout.
In other news, I just got notification that my Bell e-bill is ready, with a balance of ... are you ready for this ... $-16.32. That's right. A negative balance.
I definitely did NOT see that coming.
