A conversation I had with a friend using GMail:
R:…facebook is shit and now i am sucked into it, I keep getting ‘news’ about people now i am best friends with [name deleted]
me: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO that sounds like hell
R: it’s not that bad. i just will disable emails i think, i don’t know why i do it really. i have a myspace too.
R: i don’t know everybody’s doing it i thought it was cool and then one day i just realised it wasn’t fun anymore you know…
me: it’s not as if you have anything to add to the bollox that is the internet, and you don’t have any friends either except [name deleted]
R: [name deleted] IS my friend, maybe i will send him a little icon of a cake as a ‘gift’, it let’s you do that, facebook
me: can you actually do that?
me: how sad… I’m amazed
R: it is amazing.
me: that is a new level of pointless wankery in my book
R: [name deleted] has far more friends than me
me: [name deleted] doesn’t really have friends, he has social associates, business partners in life
R: have you met my associates?
me: what? no
R: i have none.
me: well that’s why then
