... sort of freaked out by people from my high school finding me on Facebook. Especially because most of those people hated me in high school.

you exist!

yeah, I'm seriously on the fence about whether I should join facebook. Yet another social networking thing to be a time-suck, and with my real name.

Blech. I hate that, too. When people who hated me in HS friend me, I sort of want to respond and be like "um, why are you doing this?" but I figure whatever. They want to see my IM name and email address, I don't care.

Sometimes people mature a bit after high school. I saw it once. Well, no one at my ten-year high school reunion called me Tweety Bird, anyway. Or bird twin. Or asked me where my bird twin was. Nothing like that at all.

Of course, sometimes people just get more subtle at being hateful.

Bird twin?

(Although my bullies called me Fruit Bowl for a year, because my hair was dyed a series of strange colors, and I gather they thought my haircut looked like a bowl cut.)

Fruit bowl. Good one.

My best friend and I were both Tweety Bird, and we were "connected at the hip," so that makes us bird twins. She didn't make it to the ten-year reunion, so that's why someone might ask where my bird twin was.

But why birds?? Why Tweety Bird?
