Accept? Decline?

It's funny how portable electronic systems
Otherwise known as laptops
Can bring huge distance
Between two people
On one couch.

Shall I ban laptops at home?
Because if I could bring in modular walls
And an electronics lab
The ambiance we got going now?
Perfectly suits our office.

Except that he's gaming.
And I'm facebooking.
But still.
The space. The laptops.
The cliche.
So near yet so far.

I should come up with an appropriate way
To break this silence.

Bing (bright idea)!
I am sending him an appointment request.
Through email.
In his outlook calendar.


American Idol. In 5 minutes.
Accept? Decline?

  1. Haha, that's exactly me and my boyfriend. Love the meeting request idea!

  2. Hahaha, so cute. Technology is great, but it can definitely get in the way of face time. Great idea :)

  3. Very cute! I sometimes look around, for example on the train platform, and see strangers standing practically shoulder to shoulder in their own worlds, gabbing away on their cells. And, I wonder "what if all those people put their cell phones away and actually spoke to the person standing next to them." Technology connects us, but at the same time it puts us into silos where we only get the information we request, keep connected to the people we know, etc. Where's the spontaneity of life gone? The thrill of learning something or meeting someone unexpected?

  4. -K @ Blog Goggles: Sometimes it's silly, right? If this is how it is in modern coupledom, it's not so much fun (sometimes)!

    -Children of the Nineties and M.J.: Pros and cons... always two sides, right?

  5. Aww, that's so cute! It's like the whole sitting in Starbucks and not talking to a soul cus everyone is on their laptops!

  6. oh man i agree! thats how josh and i were and then we made an agreement that if we were on the computer it would be together. its made things much better!
