I admit I love Facebook because I've:
- Found old friends
- Made acquaintances with new people
- Learned of things I might not have run across
- Been amused when say a high school friend becomes friends with some I've friended thru a friend I met on Facebook or know from another country
- Kept up on nice events for people I know
- Learned about problems with friends where I can offer help or at least show someone cares
- Been amused at postings
Then last week, Facebook switched to French. That was okay. I'm 95% bilingual.
Yesterday, after returning home to Geneva after a month in Southern France, the iPad Facebook went from French to Pirate English. It was kinda fun casting a bottle instead of making contact and my friends were referred to as scallywags, which in a few cases was realistic.
But shiver me timbers, I decided to go back to regular old English.
Meanwhile I will continue posting things like:
- My photos
- Political thoughts
- Funny stuff
- Literary stuff
- Arty stuff
- Messages to friends from FB or real life
- Whatever hits my fancy
- Responses in private or for the world to see
- Ne l'est pas?
- Es est nicht?
- öyle değil mi'
- Nije le?
- No es que?
