Have you been tweeting? Surely you've heard of blogging since you're here. You probably heard of blogging from Facebooking. If you don't have a Facebook you're not an integral part of society. If you do than you're better than those who have Myspace, right?
How dare you forget to RSVP to that event. I have also been following your tweets and noticed that you might be near me in real life sometime this week.
After I learned this I proceeded to use an "app" from iTunes on my iPod Touch to follow you down the road. When I saw you in that mass produced coffee lounge I took a photo of you on my overpriced 45 pixel camera phone. Thankfully you didn't see me so I didn't have to add you as a friend on one of my ten social networking sites. I waved and proceeded to search for a port in another mass produced coffee house to upload that photo of you that you didn't know I took of you so that all your friends could see that I have a photo of you which in theory would mean that we were friends even though we weren't and I must misuse my privilege of technology in society.
Ok. Back to reality. I'm not quite sure what is happening to communication and civil decency but it's decaying at a rapid rate. The news is only news for ten minutes before it's old. Unless, of course, it's Britney Spears...then it'll run for a couple days.
I've also noticed that people are increasingly more impatient. Nightline even discussed a study that said that more Americans survived the Titanic because they refused to be polite and wait in line for the life boats.
I hate to break it to you America...but the line for fast food is not going to save your life. If it's not your turn to place your order then you must wait. Also, the longer you wait the less calories you'll be consuming. But of course you're not concerned with that because you'll be drinking Diet soda and that solves all of life's woes.
And finally, on a lighter note. I cracked my iPod Touch today...but I still had a great day. I didn't let one bad moment ruin the rest of my day. I dropped the iPod in the morning, shrugged it off, and went about my life. What would be the point in dwelling on it? Take it from me, spend your time producing joy rather than clinging on misery. It will lower your cholesterol better than Cheerios.
