As a visually dynamic and relentlessly well-paid football blogger, the one thing I can't do is make the world's top athletes stop sending me friend requests on Facebook. Every day, it gets a little more depressing. Sometimes I feel like I barely have time to pore over summer safari pics from people I don't remember but possibly went to high school with because I'm so busy crafting a response to the latest flurry of updates to Brooklyn Beckham's video page. What kind of a world is this? IS TECHNOLOGY CHANGING US AS BASIC PEOPLE, etc.
Fortunately, thanks to a keen problem-solving streak that I inherited from my male ancestors, I've figured out how to turn this "contemporary malaise" into a viable form of historical record-keeping. All it takes is a little elbow-grease and a familiarity with the principles of collation!

Personally my favorite is Stevie being a sensitive, poetic, lovelorn hipster. Oh and Martin being obsessed with Jenna Fischer.
PS: I just added Jay Spearing on facebook, let's see if he's not yet too famous to add me back. ;)
ETA: JAY SPEARING IS A JERK WHO LOOKS LIKE A POTATO. I could've been his Alex Curran. Actually no, wait, I like wearing heels too much. TAKE THAT, POTATO FACE. (jk)
