Livinghigh: Chatterati

Chatting online is a strange situation. Being invisible is another strange option. Scores of people in a tiny chat window, it seems like a little chat room, and not all of them you want to talk to. Or, that's just anti-social me. That's where being invisible comes in. So that you can pick and choose... I mean, not that you don't like the people... it's just everybody and everyone has a time and a place... and a mood to be in.

And of course, there are the people who you just can't stand, but can't delete cuz that would make things obvious.


And of course, there are the people who you just can't remember from adam, but they're there staring out at ya from the chhotu screen.

So, that's when you try your luck, and say, hullo, who the hell are you....

Knock, knock.

Who's there?

John Doe

John Doe who?

John Doe Re Me Fa So La Ti Doe



It would be nice if you making yourself invisible to someone made them invisible to you too. That would get rid of a lot of guilt!

Firstly, do people still do random chat? You mean they have the time?

Secondly, it was a PJ, but I still laughed :)

hi! i'm back! :)

yeah, that's why i prefer one on one chats, you choose who and when. and about deleting the unwanted, i don't mind if it's obvious. i prefer not to torture myself, hahaha.

Doe a deer a female deer,
Ray a drop of golden sun...

Far a long long way to run...
Sew a needle pulling thread,
La a note to follow soooo...
Tea a drink with jam and bread,
And that will bring us back to Doe, oh oh oh...

How I wish that some of the facilities available in the chatroom were there otherwise to turn people on and off.
