Facebook: All the Youngsters Say It’s the Bee’s Knees!

July 17, 2009

I’m not really a huge Facebook-er.  I post the occassional picture, join the occassional group, but I’m not real big on talking to people on-line who I barely talk to in the real world.  I do have to admit, though, that Facebook has come in handy the last couple of days, CP-wise.

A large group is getting together on Facebook for a meet-and-greet dinner at Earl of Sandwich at Downtown Disney the night before check-in.  I’ll probably go, but I haven’t RSVPd yet.  There are already more than 30 people who have signed up to attend since yesterday, so it will be a nice, big group!  Sounds fun!

A fellow CP asked me on Facebook yesterday if I knew about renter’s insurance.  I told her I hadn’t even thought about it, which was definitely true, and then I did some digging on the good ol’ official website.  It says that renter’s insurance is encouraged, but not required.  I need to do some checking, see how much it would be, but I have a feeling I will be skipping it.  I like to live dangerously!  Honestly, though, what are the chances of needing it?  Probably not very good.  If I do get it, though, what are the chances that I’ll waste a lot of money?  Very good!

If not for Facebook, I wouldn’t have known about the meet-and-greet, and I wouldn’t have even thought about renter’s insurance.  I know I’m going to sound like an 85-year old when I say this, but this technology thing is kind of nifty!  I might actually try to use my Facebook account more often.

I began packing last night.  Just a few things that I probably won’t need for the next month: sweaters, cookbooks, those kinds of things.  It’s really exciting, but it’s also really hard.  I have a lot of stuff!  I’m glad to be getting such a huge head start, though.  Yay for me!
