Facebook is a Crime?

I remember reading an article on The Malaysian Insider with the same title (minus the question mark)... :D

Well, this is just an alasan (excuses) for me for not updating my blog for more than a week! ;) To tell you the truth, I'm online everyday (almost, I mean when streamyx wasn't suck) but always to Facebook, to play games...

Today I promise myself to pen something here, even if it is crap! :D

Let's start with the title. Initially I started facebooking to find friends and old acquaintances (not to mention "new friends we haven't met"). :D It's almost like Friendster, MySpace, and a score (scores?) of other networking sites...

Then, they (Facebook management?) introduced several cool applications, including games, I got hooked up with certain games and addicted to them. I kept adding friends I didn't know to expend my clans (or teams or controls or allies or whatever you want to call it) to respective sizes...

Then, today, while penning this post, I get to look back all those times wasted to build my (game character) stat, team size, randomly pick a fight with strangers (or make them "friends" or "enemies"), and losing time to draft, emm, ahem, "quality" post. :D

Now, I'm inclined to accuse Facebook of becoming a Crime instead of my Prime friends network. But wait! I'm addicted to Facebook games! How can this be when what I really want in Facebook is to find friends and to know people all over the world but gets diverted with time wasting gameplay???

So, how can I be cured from this "addiction"? I hereby solemnly pledge myself to update my blog once a week (every seven days) at least and only to play games every 3 days from now on. Yes, I think I will label Facebook as a crime (my crime) from now on! ;P

You all have a nice day. Cheers! ;)

Ha ha! You're funny!

I guess the best thing you can do is to do always what you really love doing. That's writing, right? :)
