Like a lot of women in her generation, Mama isn't too internet savvy, but after a few days coaxing from the Grandkids (mostly Rachael) and then another few days coaching from the Grandkids (mostly William), she was able to set up a Facebook account.

Unfortunately, we have now created a monster. Mama is addicted just like everyone else. She has more than a dozen 'friends', and thank you to the bizarre quizzes they have passed down to her, we now know what 'sitcom Mom' she is (June Cleaver), if she has ever 'not paid her restaurant bill' (she hasn't), and who her 'hot Hollywood crush is' (Collin Farrell, although she swears it should have been Sean Connery.)

But today, takes the proverbial cake. Keep reading.

The following is the e-mail I received from her a few hours ago:

"Okay, I've got to ask.....what is the "crack whore" group that Will has joined on facebook????? Maybe crack whore isn't what it sounds like but I'm just curious."

Of course I did what any good mother would do.

I panicked!!!

"You must click on it and see what it is!!" I screamed into the phone, trying not to hyperventilate. Or jump to conclusions.

She clicked.
It seems one of Will's buddies started the group and they make fun of the likes of 'Amy Winehouse, Britney Spears, and Lindsey Lohan'. Then whoever joins the group can vote for one of the three to be the 'winner.'

No, it's not necessarily something you want your teenage Christian son to do (and he and I will talk about that later), but WHEW! - could've been so much worse!


Now when Will's friends click on his Facebook and see who all has joined "Crack Whore 07", there in the midst of about 25 pictures of teenagers, is a big picture of
That's right! As soon as she clicked to take a closer look, she instantly became a member!

OH MY! Facebook is something else....been there, done that. I still don't know if I like it or not...the jury is still out. Knowing that the owners of the site mine it for information on me is something I don't like at all, but I can keep up with lots of friends at once. Sometimes I go days without checking it, sometimes it can run away with your time and you realize you've been on it way too much! GAH!
Grandma on facebook can be a good thing, but Grandma & crack whores is priceless!

I joined Facebook to get to a charity associated with a disease which runs in our family. Knowing numbers help politically, had to recruit people to Facebook first to get to the charity. Thankfully, my 75 year old mom has shown no interest. But when it comes to decorating blogs, ah well....
