Sometimes 'in-your-face'

"OMG, I just sneezed!" "I'm unwell...*sniff*" "I don't like this." "I don't like that." "I saw this movie." "Hey look, my popcorn!" "Happy *whatever* Day!" "See this picture of my perfect... a) family b) children c) husband d) boyfriend e) holiday f) pet" ...and so on. Social networking is not just social networking. It has a lot to do with inflating the ego, broadcasting an opinion, sending subtle and loud messages both to one or more people, talking to self out loud --online, showing off your wit and various other things including photos of yourself and your beloveds'. Sometimes, it gets to be in-your-face and on-your-nerves. The people (er, your 'freinds', I mean), their thoughts, their opinions, their blah-blahs, their pictures, and everything they are crazy can all drive YOU crazy. I considered deactivation, but when you're in a business and your thing includes sales of any kind, eegawd, you gotto brave all this and adopt an 'if you can't beat them, join them' mantra. So I i do.

After a break

What if I cannot write anymore? This is a thought that has been troubling me for a long time now. Before I actually start writing things that other people might read, thought should post something on my old blog teesutalk. Why am i calling it old? it's the ONLY blog I've got:-D Today,something funny happened ...I was driving and spotted a black Volkswagen ahead of me and thought it was my friend's. Painstakingly, I zoomed ahead and manoeuvered into position next to the car all the while trying to check if it was her in the driver's seat. Finally, I got near enough to wave, look at her and catch her attention. I waved wildly and happily beamed at her. In a split second I realised that it was not my friend at all but a stranger -- a very 'zapped' man. The startled guy had a sour-faced woman next to him who I am sure did not break into a smile at this behaviour from me! I quickly shook my hand at them as if to rub off my over-enthusiastic greeting and drove well away. Chuckling at myself, of course. Good start to a morning, people. Better than the mundane, eh.
