This is the weirdest thing I've read on here today. Which idiot would do such a thing, I think you should confront her and report her if she doesn't remove it. I think she may be making money out of it. Whoever this person is they must be a real loser and I wouldn't let them get away with it.

This is blatant plagiarism and this person is infringing your copyright. The first thing you should do is to contact the person and ask them to remove the copied items. You should be polite but firm, pointing out that plagiarism is a criminal offence and allowing them a reasonable time, say a week, in which to remove the offending articles. If you receive no response (or, worse, an abusive reply) and no action is taken, you should contact Friendster and ask them to remove the copied material. As the company hosting the plagiarised item(s) they have an obligation to do so and, in fact, encourage you to contact them in the case of copyright infringement in the Terms of Service: http://www.friendster.com/info/tos.php

I agree with the others, tell her to take it off her blog and if she doesn't then you can report it to friendster and get it removed. I have no idea WHY, perhaps she is insecure or wants to look interesting but isn't so is copying your posts. Have a look at her other posts, are they copied from other people too?
