So I decided to bite the bullet. I have created a Facebook page here.
I did a quick check, and it doesn't appear that I'm turning up on the "You might know" lists of my dad's page, so I seem to be safe as far as co-workers and unsavory family members discovering what all I've been doing before I'm ready.
That said, the page is mostly to reach out to FB'ers, and will mostly feature convention announcements and new project releases. You know, blatantly shameless whoring. The real party, where I bitch about the world or mock it, will still be here. So if you don't want to friend me on Facebook, don't worry, you won't be missing out on anything you won't see here. If you do friend me, please bear with me. I'm still trying to figure out how to like people back and how to add photos to already existing albums. So I'm still unfamiliar with their goofy interface and it may take me a while to make it happen.
