Confessions of a Three Day Facebook User

Posted on Thursday, April 4th, 2019 at 1:42 am

I just deleted the Facebook account that I created on April 1st. It was purely based on ulterior motives, to achieve an end, but alas in vain. It was as unpleasant as I thought it would be. No photos, no links, no posts, no bio, no decor, no friend requests, no nada, it was an unsuccessful attempt to transfer data from one iPad to another. It was one of the few things that wasn’t achieved in migration via iTunes. Facebook was supposed to be a solution. It wasn’t. In 30 days, it will be official.


So here I am, the owner of two iPads and two Macbooks. I was hoping to whittle that down an iPad, but not any time soon. Two reasons, the data, and the new holder isn’t as firm as it should be with the spring tension on the 9.7. It creeps ever so slowly in the direction of gravity, like a glacier, not seeable except for results over time. It would not do to have it let go during the middle of a performance. I will probably create some form of bottom lip for the holder or find a soft friction pad that would work.


I am starting to get a feel for the chair. If my femurs were any shorter, I wouldn’t be able to sit up in proper form. And the cushion being plump, it makes it hard to pull the calves back very far. And the legs are hence further recessed and kink the back of the knee. It’s hard to rest a foot atop a leg. A heel, toe to the floor, is the closest I can get in comfort. I’m sure I’ll find the best positions. But it’s a good moving chair, swivel and roll are both superior. I made a good move.
