The freedom of anonymity…..and other random tots…

Spent a couple of minutes speaking with one of my friends.. and suddenly realized how “easy” the internet has made communication….This dude is that half-shy – half-reserved type who can barely keep a conversation going, but is absoutely fabulous on MSN or Facebook.. This dude manages to pull off witty comments that i’ve never heard from him in real life…. I began to wonder if maybe communicating in real time involves so many nuances that most people just wilt rather than communicate effectively…. Make no mistake, this guy is good – he finished in the top two in my class back in 9ja while yours truly finished in the never land of mid-table obscurity (as the football pundits so aptly put it) but the guy never was a talker….

Found a sad tale on the web of a romantic proposal gone awry… some romantic folks decided to propose marriage on the sea shore. Unfortunately, the wife-to-be got swept out to sea and died….Guess the simple things are most often the safest too….

Liverpool finally won a premier league match, and Arsenal avoided another slippery patch against Wigan, Man Utd pulled one out of the fire at home to Sunderland and Chelski turned on the style against another team outside the top four.. Unfortunately, they will keep doing well against the lesser teams but come apart against ARSEnal (you cannot pass the ball better than them), Manure (too many game winners to track) and Liverpool (too much endeavor and hard work).. Anyways, at least Liverpool still sit atop the table for another week at least.. Let’s see what happens when Hull City come to Anfield next week…….

  1. Lol…I think I can totally realte with this. I am very witty via msn or facebook but when I'm with people (especially ones I don't know) I am very quiet. Though I've learnt to break out of that shell since i started doing some marketing for my uni.THE COUPLE…OH my God, so sad.Yes Man U didnt disappoint but they need to get Liverpool off the top like now…though it means Liverpool have to loose the next 3 matches and Man U win theirs…now thats praying for the impossible…or maybe not

  2. Well.. as a Liverpool fan.. I can only hope that it doesn't go that way and we last the pace… I fear there's no real depth in the squad to go the distance tho.. Robbie Keane looks like an expensive flop and Ngog doesn't just cut it for me….. Hoepfully we can get some money in January and get a decent striker and a right back… Loved how well Insua performed at left back.. def did better than that that other crap recruit DROSenna…

  9. I always think that having my two feet planted on the earth is better than tempting any waves of the seas, sad story!
    Writing is comforting in a way I guess and you actually think before you write rather than opening your mouth for floodgates of rubbish to flow! It also has its disadvantages you cant give the right inflections when writing and something you say can be misconstrued!
