I am completely addicted to the show, Catfish.

First off, it’s kind of a mystery, only with computers added, which I love.  A Sherlock Holmes of Google?  Yes, please.

But also, I love it because I watch with what can only be described as AGHAST.

Is this what the future holds for my children?  FACEBOOK dating?

I’ll tell you right off, I don’t accept Facebook friend requests from people I don’t know.  That doesn’t even make sense.  Why would you have a list of people under the heading FRIENDS that are not your FRIENDS?? Are we all liars nowadays?  But apparently these kids just accept friends all willy nilly, and request anyone who has a cute profile pic.

What kind of junk is that?

I can tell you right now, that sometimes the best looking people are the worst acting, so that is a really bad system of choosing friends.  Also, that’s how you end up in a relationship with a 48 year old man instead of a 22 year old girl.
