Something Totally Different

I think that I remember how this is done. One foot in front of the other, a little bit for you and a little bit for me. Words don’t come as freely as they once did, somehow decimated by the twits and friendfaces and the attention spans that go along with them. They modeled us to their scheme, and most of us fell into it. But we’re still human under there, and this, right here, is a better way of connecting for me, even if it is more of a dimly-lit velvet booth from 1992 as opposed to the vast digital playground that is the next wave of social media. Social Media. Hilarious, really, especially given the dubious levels of jourmalistic reliability and non-biased information that the term inherits from more traditional channels. Yet that’s pretty much the same experience that the other services offer me. Tired. Overwhelmed. Too much at times, too little at others. Besides, I want to talk to you. I want to hear about what you’ve been doing. I want you to tell me.

Tell me what you’ve been doing, and how you’ve been doing. It can be as short or as long as you like. And you can wait to do it in person if you fancy the old way of communicating. Some people do call me old-fashioned, you know.

    You say "old-fashioned" like it's a bad thing. :)

    Hope all is well, good sir!

    Hi! Still doing the same old stuff, just headin' for a new town to do it in.

    So when do you leave?

    Ah, lovely to hear from you. We'd not been up to much and then it all kicked off in the past month or two. Passed my driving test, @dryad_wombat continues to be awesome and is currently in the midst of conference season, we're looking forward to the delivery of our first car whereupon we're hopefully going to venture forth on some kind of holiday somewhere.
