Here's what my Facebook says right now:

I guess two posts on N. T. Wright in one day was just too much.


UPDATE: ah, now I have my 324 friends back.

Can't. Stop. Laughing.

That reminds me of those Pepsi bottle contests back in the day where you had to look under the cap to see if you're a winner.

Mine always said "YOU ARE NOT A WINNER."

DJP said...


In caps, even?

That's cruel.

NoLongerBlind said...

Didn't know that FaceBook also had an analyst application...

Michelle said...

You did have three messages in your inbox at least!

Rachael Starke said...

Hee hee.

Yep. All caps.

I'm thinking they thought that was nicer than "YOU ARE A LOSER."

But, to be encouraging, Facebook has been doing wierd things to me today too.

Not as wierd as saying I have no friends though...


CR said...

Rachael - I remember those days with the Pepsi Bottle! LOL.

DJP - Are you joking? Seriously, have you been unfriended (I know, I know, you hate turning nouns into verbs.)

If I were on Facebook, I would friend you, but I have no plans whatsoever to do Facebook.

Michelle said...

Rachael, it'll bug me if I don't correct you: it's weird, not wierd. It's an exception to the "i before e except after c" rule. Always makes me think twice too :).

Michelle said...

While we're verbing nouns, I facebook regularly. :)

The Squirrel said...

Dan, tell me you're not on Facebook? Please?

The next step is (gasp) Twitter!

Maybe it's just that all your friends are too cool for Facebook? Yeah, that's it!


Rachael Starke said...

GAH! Saw it and thought,

Now that just looks....odd. :)

I've actually been trying out Joel Griffith's approach with the whole spelling thing. He commented once that he views blog commenting as something akin to siting in a comfy chair at the end of a long day in one's slippers... or something to that effect. I really liked that idea.

But no more. Nossir, it's back to sitting up straight with my ankles crossed from now on. ;)

CR said...

Squirrel - Dan is on Facebook. Isn't that worldly of him? So worldly.

Although...I guess he has no friends on Facebook, and doesn't the Bible say not to be friends of the world. So, Dan has no friends on Facebook and Facebook is wordly, so Dan is an unworldly guy.

Yeah, that's the ticket...

Dan goes to bed early because he wakes up at a wicked hour so we can have so much fun with him and he won't respond until the morning. :=)

Carol Jean said...

Out of pity, I thought I'd look for your FB and friend you. There were some complications though. Too many Dan Phillips FB's to choose from. Will the REAL Dan Phillips please step forward?

"Who Wants to go to Formal with Dan Phillips?"

"Dan Phillips Once Tried to Beat Me Up"

"Official Petition for Dan Phillips to Graduate"

"Stop Dan Phillips from Taking Steroids"

"All Hail Daniel Phillips - English Amateur Poker Champion 2007"

"Lumberjack by Day, Ninja by Night: The Daniel Phillips Fan Club"

"Free Dan Phillips"

"Pray for Dan Phillips"

"I Hate Dan Phillips"

"Apparently Dan Phillips Really Does Exist"

"Daniel Phillips has a Facebook - What a Day"

CR said...

ROFL! Are these for real, Carol?!

DJP said...

You guys definitely had fun as I slept.

Carlo, I think I followed Phil into Facebook, after blogging about it here to find out what was the deal. Now I'm being pressed to join Phil and Al Mohler and John Piper on Twitter... but I just don't see it.

Carol Jean — how do you know I'm not all those people?

But I just picked a Facebook domain to make me distinct:

Because, before that, I wasn't really distinct.

324 friends... 300 of whom probably would not let you sleep on their couch for more than a night. My, how the world has changed.

Hey, I'm not even his friend on facebook and he can sleep on my couch as long as he wants. I'll even borrow an aerobed for him :)

HSAT I have five small children. He might LAY on the couch, but SLEEPING there might be a bit more of a challenge.

Carol Jean said...

Rats! I chose "Stop Dan Phillips from Taking Steroids" It did seem a little weird. The head seemed too small for the body in the pics. I thought it was a Pyro-gimp that went bad.

Sir Aaron said...

300 friends? I don't even have ten.

candy said...

I suppose it is ok to let you know now. All 324 of us got together and had a meeting to figure out just what to do with you. That is why we were away for a time.

I bet you thought we were raptured and you were left behind.
