We came upon a struck nerve yesterday on Facebook. It appears that people have some pretty deep feelings regarding shared Facebook accounts for couples. From what we can tell, it gives people the impression that the couple has trust issues. But we heard from a few women today that said they shared an account because their husbands just weren't that into Facebook. What's your immediate reaction to seeing a joint account?
...MILEY CYRUS. They explained this INTERESTING selection by saying that Miley's duet with ROBIN THICKE at the "VMAs" was the most watched video on their websites . . . and that the MTV web page devoted to Miley had more hits than any other artist's. You heard that right . . . MTV named Miley the "Artist" of the Year, partially BECAUSE of her completely artless performance at the "VMAs". Let's hope this was just an OBJECTIVE honor based on Internet traffic. For what it's worth, MTV's Artist of the Year in 2012 was ONE DIRECTION, and KATY PERRY was their selection the year before that. So, you know, they aren't exactly looking for a modern day BOB DYLAN or anything.
Dear Josh and Sue,
About six months ago, my girlfriend lost her job, and she's been having a tough time finding a new one. Since she's kind of struggling, I'm only going to get her practical stuff she actually needs for Christmas. I got her a new vacuum . . . a gift card so she can get new tires for her car . . . and a year of free oil changes. Is it lame to get people practical Christmas gifts instead of fancy things . . . like iPads? Why do I feel like I'm going to be in trouble for this?
Naturally, Josh and I did not agree on this... I say, sure, be thankful for everything you receive, but birthdays and Christmas aren't the time for "practical". How 'bout a small personal thing? Josh says she ought to be happy with these gifts and if she's not she should be kicked to the curb. Thoughts?
