I think I might have a problem. I’m in love with MSN.

For hours I sit, my face illuminated by the white distant glow of the screen. I stare, transfixed on the square, that magical square, as it emerges from the bottom right of my desktop. It brings forth the news that I crave.

“someone24 is now online”

“someone56 had changed there name to something pseudo-intellectual**”

I wait. I wait, and as I watch more and more contacts light up green. Text rushes over the beige CRT monitor like some great wave. It sweeps words over my inert eyes, the electronic crackling backwash carrying mindless answers to mindless questions.

All the same.

All “Hey, “Hi”, “Sup dude”.

All “Yo!”, “How u doin”, “Hows u”

All “Dun anthing xcitin 2day?”

All Bunk.

But for hours I sit, my face illuminated by the white distant glow of the screen.

I wait.

If you are currently obsessed with the MSN client, or any of it’s subsidiaries Pete is now running a support group where people can come, meet, and have real conversations. It’s called the real world, and is available to all. Why not come along and try it?

I must admit, I do sit for a while and wait for certain people to come online ... but then I'm sad. I tried real-life - it scared me O_O;;

I never wait for people to come online, but I do find it very easy to spend hours chatting to people I've never met. It's not like I don't have real friends (and some of them are on MSN too) but I still talk to these randomers a hell of a lot :confused.

I frequently have little convos like that, although meaningful convos do happen regularly.

I can figure you're talking about reputation, but what does it mean on the forum?

Wait a stinkin' minute... I have conversations EXACTLY like that... IN REAL LIFE!!! Several times a day!!

Me: Hi there, [friend], how are you?
[friend]: Hi, I'm fine, how are you?
Me: I'm fine.

[Awkward pause]

[friend]: Well, I'll see you later?
Me: Yeah, take care...


Are you saying my life is like MSN?

MSN stands for My Stupid Nickname.
I thought I was alone :eek: Wow!

The only people I ever talk to on or offline though are people from the net... freaky really that I can't make any real friends
