May not seem like a big deal to you, but bathroom time is private time. I have carried on conversations with people, yes. At the end of a long work day with the public all I was is five minutes on the pooper.
This leashed hound was in the stall next to me with its mother. And it wanted to explore into my realm. I was thoroughly creeped out at this instrusion and tucked my feet in close so it wouldn’t lick my toes. It went back and forth peaking at me several times.
And yes, I am also that person who is texting in the bathroom stall next to you mid-dump. Just don’t touch my phone.
The Internetz generation. That is the what I have come from and what I will continue to live in throughout my life. I’m sure the next generation will be even more dependent and wired than my generation. I wonder when technology will surpass me and children under ten will say to me, “What are you doing!?” and snatch the gadget from my fumbling hands.
Gadgets that I own I try to explore so I am never in the clueless boat. I hate hearing from other people the cool abilities of my tech gear. Makes me seem silly.
From my early age I was surfing the Internet. To the youth of today our ’90s version of the Internet was lacking in amounts of information and organization. I visited sites such as, santaclaus.com, candy brand websites that had flashgames, Pug (puzzles) and searched in vain for fun sites on My Little Pony and Animainiacs.
once I became a “cool” tween and teenager, I found sites like Myspace. Which at this point in my Internet Maturity seems like a childish comparison to the sophisticated sites I visit today.
My usual haunts are really not at all sophisticated, but the search tools are much better and the communications are smoother. youtube, facebook, wordpress, weatherchannel.com, all the Google services (pretty much), and wikipedia (best place to start term paper research). I also enjoy other time wasters like Failblog, Post Secret blog, and photobomb (I still haven’t seen anyone upload a picture of my bombing visitors at parks).
The Internet is infinitely browsable and constantly growing, which is why it is in my Dictionary under ‘I’ is for FUN!
