"Please come to Boston..."

So, a girl i was acquainted with in high school friended me on facebook. Do i friend her back? Is this the sign that really i should friend everyone who's ever been civil to me?

Facebook's like the ultimate in that no-pressure be-nice-to-everyone while-not-really-engaging-with-anyone kind of keeping in touch with people. My feelings on this are not entirely positive. I keep wanting to write a long essay on dynamics of people interaction and "friendship" and suchlike, but it always ends up rather too incoherent/undirected as well as rather more bitchy than is necessary.

Is tempting to make this icon my facebook picture (especially since i just accidentally knocked over and thus broke my scanner -- le sigh).
