So, i'm getting a bit tired of the dudes i know on facebook
Is it 1) somewhat crepey to be approaching random ilxors to be "friends" on this fucking thing?

or 2)muygoodbutstillslightlycrepeytimes?

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:24 (twelve years ago) link

if these ilxors know who you are, i.e., you are regularly interacting with people on ilx, then not so crepey, i don't know, maybe depends on time known too

what is crepey is poking, to me. why not just send a msg saying hi? i don't understand it.

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:31 (twelve years ago) link

The "hilarious" innuendo that goes with poking is upsetting.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:35 (twelve years ago) link

Just found an ex of mine I haven't seen for five years. DO I SEND HER A MESSAGE? God, the anguish.

chap, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:37 (twelve years ago) link

I have never poked anyone nor been poked

Curt1s Stephens, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:37 (twelve years ago) link

chap you should friend her and detail that "We hooked up and it was torturously awkward"

Curt1s Stephens, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:37 (twelve years ago) link

I also hate the hilairrriousness of dudes status updates. This one wank i know currently has his as: 'is starting to get over fielding calls from models who want to get dirty on his arse.'.

it was previously: 'is wondering why he is doing multi-coloured turds'.

NOT FUNNY, my friend.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:40 (twelve years ago) link

Bizarro. So far I'm just mostly using it as a good myspace analog.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:42 (twelve years ago) link

so now it's just Evil Ned on myspace?

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:43 (twelve years ago) link

Nah, just cloning.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:44 (twelve years ago) link

I think I'll do it tomorrow. A 2.30AM message would have 'crazy internet stalker from the past' written all over it.

chap, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:44 (twelve years ago) link

if you figured out cloning, ned, the internet would have to be renamed the interned

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:45 (twelve years ago) link

Give me time.

(Unrelated rofflyness -- from a recent Momus comment on his LJ re:ILX :

I'm not going to launch into a diatribe about how it's all polls now, or how you have to be Ned Raggett to fit in, or how idle watercooler-style chatter has banished the intelligent discourse.

Hooray! Oh wait.)

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:47 (twelve years ago) link

My sister's ex just added me as a friend. Now I have 2 friends. I am so popular.

Hard like armour, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:50 (twelve years ago) link

i cant find any friends on this thing!

chaki, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:52 (twelve years ago) link

did they all tell you their last name was smith?

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:54 (twelve years ago) link

You can find me, surely!

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:55 (twelve years ago) link

found you!

chaki, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:56 (twelve years ago) link

Yay!

Stepping out, will be back later, etc.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 01:57 (twelve years ago) link

so does one 'poke back'? like, out of curiousity? (pos know this person? hm, memory not so helpful)

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:07 (twelve years ago) link

Don't poke, write a "please to explain poke" message to it.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:09 (twelve years ago) link

hm

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:14 (twelve years ago) link

i'm a fan of less effort on my part
hence poking back
holy crap i am totally procrastinating

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:18 (twelve years ago) link

I think the poke-back is a little too lols and chummy, keeping distance with a "how do I know you?" is how I would approach this grave dilemma.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:20 (twelve years ago) link

i am lols and chummy these days

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:24 (twelve years ago) link

sort of

rrrobyn, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 02:31 (twelve years ago) link

This photo is further proof that that guy I was whining about before is a twat. On the left. (sorry abt the whining, btw)

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 03:56 (twelve years ago) link

they had better be listening to Christopher Cross

Curt1s Stephens, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 03:58 (twelve years ago) link

Is he a twat because he has a six pack or because he is on a fuck-off big boat posing on the Harbour?

Hard like armour, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 04:46 (twelve years ago) link

Ok, first he's a twat because every single thing he says on facebook is forged in the fiery pit of lolzheeelarity.
second the vizor.
third at school he was a scrawny tiny little coxswain now he's sporting a sweeet kind of flabby twopack or something and obviously here to show it off and party.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 04:51 (twelve years ago) link

that's all I got.

maybe i'm the twat.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 04:52 (twelve years ago) link

..It's his facebook profile photo btw.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 05:04 (twelve years ago) link

did this guy beat you up or something?

The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 06:12 (twelve years ago) link

Ha, no, he's about a foot shorter than me.
We used to be good m8s, but drifted apart etc etc.

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 06:17 (twelve years ago) link

Coxswain. Private school I presume.

Hard like armour, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 06:21 (twelve years ago) link

yeah m8. JEEPS m8

Drooone, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 06:24 (twelve years ago) link

What's with the matching shorts?

Hard like armour, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 06:29 (twelve years ago) link

I think if you poke someone back, then they can see your profile for a bit, and you can see theirs. I think.

Is anyone using Virb? It's like a prettier version of myspace but with flickr/video integration. I'm not convinced it offers enough that is new, and there are only about ten people on it, but it's definitely nicer to use. (http://www.virb.com/missekawasaki/)

emil.y, Wednesday, 23 May 2007 08:26 (twelve years ago) link

everyone add me!! im c0ry sk1ar.

chaki, Thursday, 24 May 2007 01:55 (twelve years ago) link

i thought your name was chaki

lfam, Thursday, 24 May 2007 02:46 (twelve years ago) link

still do not understand pokes
will add chaki

rrrobyn, Thursday, 24 May 2007 03:05 (twelve years ago) link

I don't get the pokes, either. The one person I've poked is my husband. (Oh, how that SOUNDS.) But neither of us get it.

Chaki, I will add you! (You may reject me at will.)

Sara R-C, Thursday, 24 May 2007 03:37 (twelve years ago) link

ok, i'm now here now. hunt for j3remy s41m0n.

kingfish, Thursday, 24 May 2007 04:16 (twelve years ago) link

Ha ha just joined ILX/M group. Sadly this means that people will now find where I spend my day and get all my jokes! Maybe I should unsubscribe just to be safe!

kv_nol, Thursday, 24 May 2007 09:14 (twelve years ago) link

Yes, me and my boyfriend poke each other several times a day. Wait, what?

Dear god how I hate humanity sometimes...

kv_nol, Thursday, 24 May 2007 10:03 (twelve years ago) link

two weeks pass...

Does "I hooked up with..." imply a sexual relationship or not?

Alba, Tuesday, 12 June 2007 18:05 (twelve years ago) link

it's only used ironically
