FASTING FACEBOOK

I decided to fast from Facebook. Not a whole week of course. Just a few days for starters. It was a piece of cake!

No, literally. I had all the cake I wanted. With milk and with soda. Then, I had it with soda and milk.

When Facebook came to mind the first time and I was really tempted, I just got on my bike and rode to the best BBQ this side of the Mississippi. Had me two plates topped with bacon. The Facebook temptation went away at once.

Then, I decided to go for some sushi. Buffet line of course. Best sushi on this side of the Atlantic. They were a bit fishy though, but no Facebook temptation at all.

When I got up in the morning (after my prayers of course), I went for my habit of coffee and Facebook. But this fasting thing allowed for a double plate of biscuits and gravy, so I had them with my coffee instead of Facebook. Topped it with extra spicy sausage just incase Facebook wanted to tempt me some more.

Fasting lunch was even easier. What were them big ol’ stakes called that they used to have at Outback? Our ol’ country store has them a bit bigger than the one in Amarillo, but instead of land rovers, we call ‘em landers. Like in: land me two on this plate over here, please. Yes, they do look like flat earth to me.

Have to tell ya’ll, Facebook did not come to mind till about the end of the second one and the tater topped with salty butter, plenty of sour cream and some refried bacon bits of course. I had to chase that Facebook temptation with a double slice of country backed apple pie. Put 30 seconds in the microwave and covered with three scoops of moose track ice cream, please. M-m-Mamma, stuffed my face like Russian Olympic athletes with fresh dope. Facebook what?

I will stop here and not tell you what I ate for supper. Mainly because it was so much I can hardly remember it all. Pretty sure, will post the menu in his secret group nobody is supposed to know about, but everybody does. So next time you decide to fast from Facebook, don’t post your decision on Twitter or Instagram. Instead, you should fast from some gossip for a change.

    Interesting… so, essentially, you felt led to “fast” from Facebook, which is really not commanded anywhere in the Bible since Facebook didn’t even exist at that time, and so you “overcame” your temptation to be on Facebook by eating things that the Bible DOES explicitly command against eating. Yep, that makes a ton of sense (sarcasm).

    Troy Day We hired an Indonesian maid a couple of years ago who had worked for a Korean family. She could make kim bap, the Korean version of sushi (no raw fish.) It was good. I’d never had egg kimbap from the previous day. She made that and it was really good.

    This one learned to make kimbap from my wife. She’s gotten to be a pretty good cook. She already did a pretty good job on javanese food: kangkung, tempeh, fried chicken.

    “But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I HUMBLED MY SOUL WITH FASTING; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.”

    A drug addict has a very difficult task of breaking the habit: a facebook addict has twice the difficult of breaking the addiction.

    Neil Steven Lawrence Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained Friday night why his company would take no action on posts in which President Trump threatened “looting” in Minneapolis would lead to “shooting.” That explanation came roughly 16 hours after Twitter did take action and despite Zuckerberg’s having previously told Congress that posts inciting violence would not be tolerated on Facebook.

    “I know many people are upset that we’ve left the President’s posts up,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post.
    Trump’s posts on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter read, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/29/tech/facebook-explains-not-flagging-trump/index.html
