when family and facebook provide you an NSV...

So facebook is the latest craze for bringing people together from the past. It's good and it's bad in that you can reconnect with people you've lost touch with from your past (or people you see everyday) who meant a lot to you and you have incredible bonds with (like my elementary school friends) but then you can get stuck with requests from people you want stuck in your past like random people you've met, dated or people you don't even know but have your e-mail addy (i LOVE sending messages asking who the hell people are too!). So in my family I have a roster of brothers who aren't my blood brothers but who treat me like their kid sister. My parents adopted pretty much the whole neighbourhood and any of my brothers' friends when we were growing up so I have a lot of guy friends who call me sis...actually, they all call me mouse, but you get the point. Our mission the other day was to get my eldest brother, Kevin, to join Crackbook and one of the boys started a group with this mission in mind. In this group, another decided we should come up with a top 10 list of reasons as to why Kevin should join us on the dreaded Web site that brings friends and foes alike together in cyber harmony. Well, that list never really got off the ground because as quick as we got this group started, Kevin joined! We thought Kev would be a hold-out and give us a run for our money but he sure as hell threw us for a loop and then surprised us with his own top 10 list of reasons to join. I won't subject you to the whole list, as it's filled with in-jokes you won't quite get, but it was #4 that made my day: 4. Needs place to post on internet about how proud he is of his sister and her journey. (She's an after!) excuse me, i need a tissue.... and this folks is why I count my brothers as 3 of my best friends. oh - and a nonny mouse - i'm on to you...should have been a naughty mouse. werrrrrk!

That's so sweet!!! It's nice to have such a good support network!!!

I have a great brother as well (he is my brother in law, but since I don't have any real brothers I never bother with the "in law" stuff)

How did you get the nickname mouse? (is it a back story, or just came along when you were a child?)

Awww, that's SO sweet!! Brothers can be so great sometimes.. I've heard a lot about Facebook, but I'm kinda scared to try it out.. lol!! I don't really know if I wanna reconnect with anyone.. I think it's cuz I'm still a bit self conscious about my looks.. But thanks to you I understand what it is a little bit better! :-)
