How to be Cool?
December 13, 2012 8 Comments
Oblivious as I frequently am to pop measures of coolth, I didn’t realise that ‘meeting people online’ — which is often a euphemism for dating and for casual encounters of the carnal kind, apart from more vanilla friendships — was the epitome of drab, dreary, left-in-the-ditch geekiness.
Oh deary, deary me. I can rustle up maybe one friend I first met in ‘weal life’ (though intimacy brewed mostly on chat applications, late at night and from the comfort of pyjamas and our own beds). The prettier flowers of my affection, likewise, were plucked from the sides of the information superhighway.
Siiigh. Whatever shall I do? Will madly fangirling Twilight, Justin Bieber and ‘organic’ cosmetic brands on FB lift me back up to ‘normalcy’?
