rejected by seven different technologies…

i am important, and very, very, very interesting. maybe? i would like to think so. 

did anyone see “he’s just not that into you?” don’t. if you haven’t. however…ever since opening my twitter account i have had the line drew barrymore’s character says stuck in my head.

“I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home, and then he emailed me to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell, and now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting.”

(i found the quote online…i didn’t memorize it…however…that would be amazing if did.)

why do we feel better about having as many “followers”, “friends” or “stats” as possible? can’t we just say i write, or tweet for me…and that’s it? after talking with chris…i decided technology can be very dramatic, and rejecting. why does it have to be this way? does anyone else feel this way sometimes?

  1. “I miss the days where you had one phone number and one answering machine and that one answer machine housed one cassette tape and that one cassette tape either had a message from the guy or it didn’t. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by 7 different technologies. It’s exhausting.”

  2. Oh yeah, everything has its light and dark sides. Yeah, technology can be rejecting and mean, but it also connects a lot of people. Say you’re gathering up your buddies for a party or study group meet-up, that one phone number with one cassette tape probably isn’t the best choice. You want to send out that info fast. And what if the person doesn’t have any more tape? What if your group has a lot of people?

    There’s always two sides to a coin (:
