Idle Musings 1 (first in a long series, I'm sure)
I find myself hanging out in coffee shops to be antisocial. I sit, pull out my computer, and look intently at whatever I'm browsing to; usually there's a stack of papers or a book next to it, and of course I'm blocked off from the aural world by the obligatory headphones. I come here in the hopes that I may know someone, or meet someone I don't know. I guess it's a token gesture - I'd like to be more social so I go to a place that has people. Ineffective by itself, but at least an overt action.
