I haven’t gotten around to a post in a while, but today I feel like I should get a little something out… more for me than anything. Honestly, I’ve never had anyone asking why I don’t blog more. EVER. Which is probably good.
So today at Panera, there was a really loud conversation going on at the next impossibly small round table. One guy was old* and quiet. The other guy was less old. But he made up for his youth** in volume of voice and length of ponytail*. I’m not exagerating when I say that his ponytail was three feet long. A full meter of bad choices***. The conversation was MUCH less then informational, but was VERY entertaining. I learned about ‘Google plush’ and ‘Neeshy’ and the politics involved in ‘The Facebook.’ What I learned**** was the following list:
- ‘Google Plush’ will be the next facebook, but will have all of the good parts of Myspace.
- ‘Neeshy’ was the first person to make sense of religion.
- ‘The Facebook’ was never meant for college students, but there are so many and they’re all so powerful that shareholders had no choice but to let college students on first.
So I feel fairly educated today. I will most-likely take the rest of the day off just to think through all of that glorious knowledge.
Oh. Also, the ponytail was also wearing a t-shirt that said “Reason is dead.” Maybe reason dies when it gets too close to a ponytail that long.
* The old guy was somewhere between 65 – 106. I’ no good at guessing ages, especially at the high end. I use those two ages because I’ve been surprised at the old looks of 65 year olds and have met a woman that was 106 and this guy looked similar.
** The second guy was not young. He was in his late forties. I say youth because he was more-than-likely living in the basement of the old guy he was with.
*** A male with a ponytail is a bad choice. A full-grown man with a ponytail is a really bad choice. A three foot ponytail is probably making most of the decisions for a grown man.
**** What I REALLY learned was that men with ponytails and really weird T-shirts are usually full of “information” that they’d love to talk to pretty much everybody about. Oh. And need showers.
