Anyone who pays close attention to my LJ Info will notice my interests change frequently. One interest I had listed(but removed) was random lj searches, something I frequently perform. When I checked to see who else shared the same interest I found four names. One hadn’t posted in over a year and the other three were ‘friends only’. I wonder if they know how to spell irony? Do they think people who perform random searches will want to add them as friends based on their journal layout or background wallpaper? Maybe their icons or bio will do the trick. Does actual post content matter to anyone? Obviously not in their case.
This week’s epiphany – I’m an old school nerd/geek. When shown the latest high-end laptop PC, I wasn’t impressed. A little later it hit me; someone having the latest cellphone/camera/mp3-player/electric shaver/DVD/home theater/decoder-ring multi-function gizmo from Best Buy or where ever doesn’t give me a case of techno-envy. But show me your backyard with several tall ham radio towers holding all sorts of aluminum and wire antennas, Tudor electric football game or a rather large vinyl album collection and I’ll probably go “wow!”.
