How many people here have gotten their Harvard facebook yet? I figure this would be a good place to post facebook links so we can friend each other and feel popular and such.
That being said, Facebook me!
Also, is anyone else getting scarily addicted to Facebook? I just got it last night, and I've already spent several hours on it, although that's probably mostly a reaction to the post-AP lack of work awesomeness.
