pretty plain

Ooooo-oo-oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo-oo
All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
I like watching the puddles gather rain

watching puddles on the Moon

Around this time of year it’s the drifts gathering snow, not puddles. A plain life is always a comparison of course. Our social media life comparison site called Facebook offers too many chances to compare my puddle watching to other’s daring adventures, conquests and look-at-me's. I enjoy enough of the look-at-me site to stay a member. I don’t spend much time there. I would rather watch youtube gather video.

All I can say is that my life is pretty plain
You don't like my point of view
You think that I'm insane
It's not sane, It's not sane

No Rain by Blind Melon

I haven't heard that song for quite some time. Happy New Year!

I post nothing on facebook, and follow only the people or things I care about. Works out well for me.
Happy new year.

I like FB well enough, but try not to spend a lot of time there. I don't really want to compare my life to others'.

Happy New Year, Bill!
I just wish the rain would stop... more of a pain than plain.

That is an interesting point about Facebook being a window into other people events and comparing it to your life. I hardly ever look at my Facebook account but now that you mention it, it does prompt comparisons on how we all got to where we are.

Happy New Year - rain is great if it is the right amount. thanks

FB is good. Really the problem is how people/companies/political groups use it. thanks

I don't spend much time up there. Mostly check out pictures of family. I'll throw out a funny (in my opinion) comment if I'm up there for awhile. Even though I don't think about it much, I can't help but compare others activities to my own. It's not something to dwell on and for the most part I could care less but it's still there. I think this comparison aspect of FB can be more of a problem for young people who I suspect are more worried about their image with their peers than adults. thanks
