You know, I always find it weird when a family member contacts me via MySpace, Facebook or Twitter asking to friend them. I mean, I seemed to be the technically inclined one in the family; messing with computers, taking apart toasters, etc., so its a surprise to see, say, my 10 year younger cousin on Facebook (who I rocked to sleep a few times, which is also weird to a 10 year old).
It is a bit nice to connect with my sisters and my mom though (if she did the whole social thing), but for the rest of the extended family… I would have to say that its weird.
Perhaps I should have talked to them more than once a decade. Oh well.
