Friends on Friday

Kimo: OK  . . . so this Facebook thing that Mommakitty is addicted to . . . she's takin' it too far! She's actually trying to use our connections to make friends fer herself!

Sabi: She's started a group just fer beans of cat bloggers! Pfffft! 

Kimo: Well, whut I've learned is that ya gotta give yer beans a little break every once in a while. Do you know that beans got this labor law thing that says fer every 8 hours of werk, they is supposed to git a 30 min lunch break and TWO 15 min breaks?! 

Sabi: Well, we don't wanna break any labor laws or have Mommakitty git a bunch of other beans to strike. We wanna make our blogging staff happy - right?

Kimo: So there's a special club now on Facebook called:

Cat Blogger Beans Social Club
A group for parents, staff, and slaves of cats who blog. A place for beans to brush off the fur from their sleeves and feel human again (at least for a few minutes). Socialization and networking encouraged (and having fun too). Other critter parents welcome (ie: hamster, woofies, buns, etc).

Sabi: Mommakitty is da current administrator and she wrote some rulz. If yer beans wanna join, they has to contact her via da site to request admission. You has to have a pet blog, website or related site (ie: Catster) and provide URL for authorization to your site(s). You has to have a Facebook account wif your true name and photo on it too.

Kimo: Anyhoo, some of yer beans might be interested in joining this silly "club"  - I say throw 'em a bone and let 'em have a little fun. Mommakitty says she needs da human contact. Da only cat bloggin' beans she has met in person wuz Da Food Lady & Mr. Tasty Face and she said she "felt more connected to Skeezix" because she met them.

Sabi: Yep - gotta keep da staff happy - keep morale up. We're not quite sure whut they talk about - and we don't care. So long as Mommakitty gits her "fix" and then git back to werk on our blog. So, just somethin' to think about . . . kinda like an employee benefit. 

Kimo: Whutever - let da beans bond.

Well I thinks you is right to let em haz a break!
Luckily my Momma hates facebook, coz I can barely get time for her to help me now, and I know that is something she loves doing.. helping me blog and visit.. really!

We hopes this takes off for your Momma, my Momma understand where she is coming from coz she sits at home 90% of the time just with me and Mushka as company.. she forgets how to interact with real people sometimes ;)

I think its a great thing for the humans. I mean, over here in NJ we feel rather disconnected from our friends and the LL always wants to connect with people with similar interests.

Isis said...

hurrah for your mom! Sister said she just might check this out...

Fin said...

Oh no, Mommy is not yet aware of Facebook. I worry that she will never get to her other duties, she's even considering starting her own non-cat blog. I'm a bit concerned.

Name: Mr. Hendrix said...

you don't think they'll talk about how to keep us "in line" do you? i hope not cause mommy is going to sign up!!

George the Pup said...

It sounds like a great idea, as long as it doesn't interfere with us blogging :-)

Mommy says she's gonna sign up right now!

PB 'n J said...

Heh, heh - sorry, that was us PB&J, we just forgot to sign out of George's account!

Shadow / Molly said...

Jimmy Joe said...

Momma just asked Mommakitty if she could join the group! She has lots of groups in her Facebook profile, but she said this one sounds the coolest!
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

You know I blame you for my lack of blog time... of course I also blame bloglines which is really getting irritating... .sigh.

Tybalt said...

My mommy joined just this morning! I can't believe it. She's already neglecting my friends, and now she's going to be spending even more time away from my blog.

I am going to talk to her tonight and lay down some rules.

MaoMao said...

Lux said...

Best wishes to your mom with the club - I'm keeping mine away from Facebook! ;-)

Marilyn MonREOW said...

MaoMao forgot, Mom doesn't have a Facebook account! EEK! He can be so forgetful.

But I hope your Mommakitty has a great time with the club, and if our Momma gets into Facebook, she'll join! :)

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Fat Eric said...

That's a good idea, Kimo and Sabi's mum. My mum says she already spends hours on the internet and if she joined Facebook she would spend so long on the internet in the evenings that dad would divorce her for abandonment. I would also sue her for desertion!

Ozzie said...

Hi Kimo & Sabi,
"Mom" applied, I said "Mom", because the Facebook it for BROWNIE, but Brownie said she'll lend his facebook for a while for mom, and no spying ;)

So I hope she can be on the group
-Ozzie

Ozzie said...

PS: There's a Brownie's Fan Club @ Facebook, Brownie says you have to search "Club de fans de Brownie", maybe you want to join ;)

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

Mommy wants to join, she has a facebook account too. She will try and find her...otherwise, can you help us help her?

Victor Tabbycat said...

We's doin fings backwards. We finded the group on Facebook first, THEN saw yur nouncement on the CB. Whatefur, I guess Moms need a brake sumtimes. Ok, 5 minutes. I's settin the timer.

Max said...

The Woman just requested to join...but then she realized the picture she has up doesn't show her face, just her on a rumbly bike. Anyways, I think her request was sent under "kathompson." She wants friends, dangit!

The Cat Realm said...

My maid was ready to open a facebook account on the spot to join the group - but I put my paw down! With her gazillion other blogs, her youtube stuff, the art sites, the myspace pages (hers AND mine) that she doesn't take care of, she does not even have the time anymore to help us with our meager little blog!!! I hope I can keep her from adding this to the load - but with her - you never know, I think she secretly bookmarked this post....
And she mumbled something like "can relate... having met Asta's mom.... feel more connected...."
HUMANS!!!!

That does sound like fun but the PM is anti- facebook. The Music Man is obsessed with it and not her. Go figure.

My beanmom squealed and immediately logged in to Facebook and requested to join the group.
