It seems like more and more of - well, everything - is going to Facebook. This makes Stephie sad. I've resisted getting too deep into it to date, but I feel like I'm going to have to give in, or else be left behind completely.

Over there, people have been posting old pictures. It reminds me that I've been meaning for a while to try to get a decent, recent picture of myself. The most recent one I've got is the one in my icon, and that's what, four years old?

Meanwhile, in other news, this past weekend was my first weekend playing Fantasy PBR. It works very smoothly, and the only downside seems to be that there's no convenient way to compare against my friends. I can see that I'm #468 overall (from memory, I could be off a few digits) and thus not competitive for the prizes, as expected. I can see that my score of 2300.75 (again, from memory) did beat the announcers. But I'll have to talk to my friends. ETA: Numbers correct, but the 468 was for the week - it's #713 for the season.

Oh, the horror.

But will you talk to them on Facebook?

I'm with you - I much prefer Livejournal to Facebook, but for communication type things, I guess it's all about being where the herd is. This will always appeal to the journal keeping part of me, though - the fact that it gets feedback from useful people is a nice bonus, but the journal part of it is more the point.

Yeah, I have no intention of giving up the journal here. Permanent member, for one thing. I just didn't want to have to give my time to both.

You can ask whatever you want. Do you want an answer?

PBR is Professional Bull Riding.

A very simplified version of the fantasy rules is: each event, pick five riders and three bulls. Add up their scores, and compare against other.

There's more to the scoring than that, to make the bulls matter more, and to keep people from just picking the top five riders, but that's the core essence.

I know a lot of people have been showing up on FB and Craig made a much more reasoned and descriptive comment on the uses of the two.

Really just commenting to let you know that I still do read LJ. And will continue to do so. I might even post again at some point.
