1. When you go out with friends, what is your favorite drink (alcoholic or non).

2. How often do you go out socially?

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

Sometimes banshee meet-ups are so much fun that we forget to take pictures. That's happened more than once. I also don't take pictures at most of the social events I attend. Something like a baby shower or a 50th birthday party, yes. Getting together with friends at the winery, or monthly book club, no. I am not thirteen.

Awwwww...you don't have to be 13 to take pictures. Everyone has a camera on their phones now. It is fun to take pics and then look back at them years later.

Well it's one way, but it's not the only way.  I take a lot of pictures, there are many pictures worthy moments in my life, a small slice of them "may" make it onto facebook but facebook is not my judge of picture worthy, lol.

I count book groups with friends as a social event, but not book/reading groups that are made up of colleagues and where we read new books in the field. It is fun to read them and discuss them in someone's home rather than around a seminar table at work.

Me too.

They do, I only have a very small handful of pictures on my phone, 1000's from/through my dslr though.  I love to take pictures and do so quite often actually.  I just don't see facebook as the medium to store and share, there are so many other much more secure locations than facebook.

With the duck lips and the peace signs?  LoL....although, I've been told that facebook is not very popular among the teens in my world; snap chat, twitter and instagram are way more popular than facebook in my area.  Tweens and us older folk are on facebook, but not the teens, again...my area, no study.

"not just the two of us or the 3 of us going out as that's family /couple time-- however there is that gray area when the two ofus will go to a 'destination' like a women's T-dance" ---------- I do consider going out with my husband social. We always make an event of it, in our own small ways, and even if it is just a quick lunch before running off to something else. If we have had a long day, we often go out for a drink in the evening, so we can relax and talk. Besides, the way we live, it is not unusual for friends to come by and join us, unplanned. As far as going out with friends, that probably happens 2-3 times a week.

But he takes all kinds of pictures, not necessarily pictures of the event, unless it is something unusual, as you say. Nor does he share the pictures on FB.
