    Guilty of posting Lyrics (and/or videos) of my favorite songs. But mind you, I don’t do it every 5 minutes. And no, I do not broadcast to the world whatever song in my playlist I am currently listening to.

    This is awesome and I can see this getting shared a lot on fb A LOT. You should consider editing in a link to your website or something at the very bottom so that when people do share it as a pic, they’ll also be driving traffic to your blog :)

      I was very back and forth on this for some reason. I didn’t know if it would detract from the illustration, so I opted for a very small ‘getsecondlunch.com’ text hidden on the illustration. It’s like a ‘Where’s Waldo?’ watermark.

    Thanks for the glimpse into Facebook…and yet another reminder why I choose other ways of communicating!

    hahaha…love this!! nowadays virtually verbal fb “friends” are blowing up walls of the innocent. im glad someone had the decency to put a status style poster to identify the takeover. great job! (im posting to fb :o))

      It’s a passive agressive way of telling your friends to post these types of things in moderation. It’s fine every now and then, but a daily occurrence is a grounds for booting people off my feeds. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to take a few mirror pics for my new profile pic.

    Ha ha! This was really funny. I have several who fit in these categories in my list :)

      I actually had a bunch of other ones I wanted to throw in, vacations / holidays was definitely one. It didn’t make the cut because I fell asleep, which seems to be the norm for me in terms of things that don’t make it onto illustrations.

    The 24/7 Baby Info people are the ones that drive me nuts! Especially when I see posts about baby poo! Really?!

    well I have not been on the Book of Faces since last fall but I guess I would be the “LIKER”

    loved this!

      When I think about it, I’m pretty sure I found your blog by stumbling onto your post about defecting from Facebook. It’s like the spiritual inspiration of this post. Huzzah!

    Haha… I’m definitely the “lyrics obsessed” + video poster! Also I’m super guilty of being the celebrity death condolences freak! :#
    Off I go now…

    to repost this post…
    M a y b e… :#

    I am so tempted to share this on my face book page but I’m sure my own friends will give me hate comments or un-friend me :) lol.. So funny..

    Haha! Love it! I’m definitely guilty of doing the workout freak updates :S
    No more though!!

    I am absolutely the political rants person.
    But then so are most people I’m friends with.

    This is why I have a separate twitter account for my RAGE at world politics tweets.

    Haha very true :D. I guess I’m guilty of posting movie quotes sometimes and wishing people happy birthday even though they’re acquaintances. I know it makes people feel special, so I think what’s the big deal in wishing someone anyway. Love the post :D

    I can’t tell you how delighted I am to find that I’m not really any of these. What I am instead is ‘dull’. Or is this a humblebrag? Bugger.

    I’m definitely the “sport update guy.” I swear that I don’t mean to be, but I think that at least 100% of my posts have been about some sports-related theme/update/etc. Shocking. But more interesting that telling everyone about myself the whole time I suppose.
