Great or Terrible Things That Happened on Facebook

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply (you really can do that now!), whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Today is the big Facebook IPO. There are people who document every inch of their lives on the social network, and there are people who interject their hatred of the company every time it's mentioned. For everyone in between, do you have any examples — positive or negative — of ways Facebook has made an impact on your life, or someone close to you? Reconnecting with an old friend? Stalked by an old enemy? Found a job? Fired for updating your status at work?

2. What was the last great meal you had?

3. We've been talking about installing a trophy case in the office. The problem is, we don't receive a lot of awards. In order to fill it, we'd each bring in a trophy from our childhood (my contribution). Whether it was an Outstanding Participation Award or something legitimately impressive, what was the first trophy you received?

4. I am running to lunch with co-worker Andrèa Fernandes, who I talk to almost every day but haven't seen in four years. So if you want to pose a question to your fellow _flossers, have at it!

How To Make A Snow Globe Cocktail

Nothing gets people into the holiday spirit quite like snow globes… and booze. So, the Snow Globe Cocktail makes perfect sense.

Brought to us by , the festive cocktail is created with a few simple ingredients and supplies. Please resist the urge to shake it up. Instructions here.

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
