farmville & my nephew

so all you crazy facebookers are playing farmville, mafia wars, i want to be a clown with a big red nose, etc. y'all have way too much time on your hands. not to mention the fact that these games, or whatever the hell they are, make you pretty much crazy. MUST PLANT CROPS!!!!! I NEED YOU TO JOIN MY MAFIA NOWWWWWW!!!!!

so i noticed that my nephew was playing farmville and of course, i made fun of him. relentlessly. (which really means that i posted 1 thing on his wall making fun of him)

anyway, a couple days later... my nephew and i were texting eachother and this ensued:

nephew: just to let you know, farmville is required for all division 1 schools thank you very much.

me: i'm sure that's on the application.

nephew: so once i reach level 20 i will be accepted into standford

me: not if you can't spell the name of the school right

nephew: actually, all they care about is if you know how to properly grow bell peppers.


and ........ what more is there to say really?

both of my SIL's are trying SO HARD to get me to do farmville. I'm like, NOOOOO! I'll get on facebook, but that's about it.

As a "Standford" grad, I can personally attest to the fact that multiple "Standford" students probably can't spell the name of the school right. Most of them are athletes. NOT that all athletes are dumb. Just that a high proportion of the dumb ones happened to be athletes...

LOL, hilarious!!

Your nephew would get into Standford on his looks alone. Yes, I am 36 and yes, I did just say that about your 17-year-old nephew.

I admit it, I'm weak, totally into mafia wars...but my farmville is wilting away, fruit rotting on the trees, cows needing to be milked, ect...
Oh, yes, I'm 41 years old and I agree with Alison, your nephew would get in on looks alone, never mind the ability to properly grow bell peppers.

I REFUSE to play farmville! I will "ignore" those requests ALL DAY LONG!

Nora said...

The only thing I got out of that is that you're on facebook! I live on facebook....I'm going to find you Jen!!!!

lol i have resisted being sucked in as well. of course that may have more to do with being declared the black thumb of death to all plants. i figure if i can't keep a real one alive virtual ones will die just as quick.
