Oklahoma, you are in my thoughts. My heart goes out to you.
Thanks ALL for your help and feedback with this @Facebook thing. Sorry for the complaining. I'll tweet a joke soon....which might be worse.
Not surprised by @facebook lack of interest in my problem. Last time they tweeted was May 12. Way to stay on top of that social networking.
About me:I've been doing comedy for about 10 years now. It's fun. I just started writing and directing things. That's fun too. I also have a band called Funeral intheMirror. That's fun, but not funny.
