Billy’s facebook status: “How the hell do you fold a fitted sheet?!”

What ensued? 31 of the most hilarious comments I have read to date on Facebook! Guys telling him to get a wife, girls telling him to call his mom, both genders telling him to roll it, bundle it, throw it in a corner or cocoon himself in it while nice and hot out of the dryer… the overwhelming trend though was that not many people knew how!!

One helpful comment: “Put one corner over your hand like a hat then put all the other corners one at a time over that corner.” To which someone responded that aligning the corners of a fitted sheet could be as “sinple” as aligning the planets!! haha

So to all you new mom’s, recent wifes, mothers of teenage sons — here is a video HOW TO FOLD FITTED SHEETS… pass it to them before they have to resort to Facebook like poor Billy!!

No more excuses for unruly, unfolded fitted sheets!

I can’t believe this made the news, but it did!!

Facebook’s next biggest craze appears to be Doppelganger Week. In order to celebrate Doppelganger Week, Facebook users switch their profile pictures to famous people they have been told they resemble. Have you participated in this? I’m not the type to participate in Facebook games like that or the whole “change your status to…” thing, BUT it made me wonder who I would pick that ressembles me and I came up with…. Nothing!!! I have absolutely NO IDEA!! haha

So, here are a couple of pictures of me…

HELP ME FIND MY DOPPELGANGER!!

I’ll give a prize on Friday to whoever finds the best doppelganger for me!

We all know… we’ve all experienced it… within minutes of posting your relationship status on Facebook, 20 people comment on the change!!! Is that a good thing??? Gotta wonder!!! This HILARIOUS video shows just how bad Facebook can be on a relationship!

haha too funny… and too true! Careful with what you post next!

It’s Back to School time!!!

If you are not yet sure about what kind of degree you would like to pursue, here’s an original one: a school in England is trying to entice students with a degree in social media!!

Yep! For £4,000 a year (that’s about 7126$ here), you can get a degree in Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc. from the Birmingham City University.

Not surprising, with the economic meltdown happening a bit everywhere, the program is pretty controversial!! So, naturally, where will you find the most debates on the topic from critics?! On Twitter of course!!!!! How ironic!!!

Some modules will teach students how to start a blog and podcast techniques.

“It’s a complete waste of university resources. It’s of no interest to me whatsoever. Virtually all of the content of this course is so basic it can be self-taught.” (Jamie Waterman, 20, a Birmingham-based student)

The course convener, Jon Hickman, responded to media coverage of the course via tweet, saying it was not for “IT geeks”…

What your thoughts?! I have part of me that thinks this is kinda brilliant because of the way our world is depending on social media. HOWEVER, an actually university degree on the topic…. uhmmmmm… it’s kinda like offering a degree in email 10 years ago!

Earlier this year, 82-year-old Pope Benedict upped his cool factor by getting his very own YouTube channel! Now, he has gone up and beyond coolness by entered the world of social networking of Facebook and iPhone apps!!!

The Pope2You website allows Facebook users to send virtual postcards with photos of Benedict and excerpts from his messages. Also on the site, an iPhone and iPod Touch application that gives surfers video and audio news on the Pope’s travels and speeches, as well as on Catholic events worldwide!!!!

The new portal is the latest update in the Vatican‘s efforts to broaden the Pope’s audience and reach out to young people. While wary of the potential pitfalls of new media, Pope Benedict has also encouraged young Catholics to use the Internet to spread the church’s message. What a smart man!

Well actually, it was all Rev. Paolo Padrini’s idea! “The walls of our churches are painted by the greatest artists of all time”, he said, “This means that the church has always invested in the culture of each period, using the best instruments available to communicate with people.”

Internet savvy Rev. Padrini was also behind another Vatican foray on the web: iBreviary, an application that brought the book of daily prayers used by priests onto iPhones.
