Another guilty pleasure

We've all been on the infamous www.fmylife.com, and enjoyed it. The world of anonymous online story-telling is rapidly expanding thanks to the success of FMyLife. Who knew that so many people, just surfing the web, could thoroughly enjoy reading the misfortunes of others that they don't even know?

Even I have to admit that reading FMyLife has become one of my guilty pleasures. To add to this guilty pleasure, a new similar website, www.textsfromlastnight.com was recently launched. TextsFromLastNight (TFLN) was recently started by two college buddies just looking to have a good time and capitalize on the anonymous online story-telling fad, made popular by websites such as www.postsecret.com and FMyLife. TFLN works very much the same way as these other websites. You simply go to the website (no login required) enter your area code and your text(s) and hit submit. The website picks the "best" entries and displays them for all the world to see. And the site is constantly being updated.

Here are a couple examples.

(856): would you object to me following you around all the time with a video camera and selling it to TV? Your life could make me millions.

(412): Why are there hot girls at the dollar store?
(410): The recession has changed everything man.

(417): You do realize the lyrics aren't "hold me close TONY DANZA" right?
(573): You can't be serious.

The texts can literally be about anything. Some are clearly sent under the influence, some not under the influence. The entries cover such a wide range of topics, there is bound to be at least a few to make you chuckle, or texts that you can relate to. Readers can even go through and post comments in response to the texts or rank the entry a "good night" or a "bad night".  You can even search by area code to see what crazy texts are being sent from your area. Recently the website even added a sidebar where you can see funny or ridiculous tweets that people posted or pictures that were sent to flickr.

Sometimes I do question myself for enjoying the fallouts of other people, but then I remind myself that they sent the text and although it wasn't meant for everyone and anyone to see, the entries still are anonymous.

So if you are ever having a bad day, check out www.textsfromlastnight.com for a little pick-me-up.

And let's face it, we all can relate.

Ever since I found out about this site through your review, I've shifted a lot of my FMyLife time to TextsFromLastNight! :x
