[Error: unknown template qotd]I can only answer for people in South Africa at this point, but cellphones are the worst. Handheld gaming devices are too expensive here and so is the wi-fi. Although laptop appearances in shops are more common these days, they do not create as much hassle as cellphones. People talk loudly, allow them to ring in the most inopportune places and frankly behave, like the public space is an extension of their living room. I do not care if your boyfriend broke with you and how much time you spent crying to your girlfriends. Speak softer or see them face to face and leave the rest of us to our own devices.

I suppose I just hate the imposition of another person's life onto others without their  consent and cellphone help allows to do that with little effort. In comparison, a wannabe pseudo-intellectual in a coffee shop with an open laptop is quieter and more amusing in trying to balance the 17'' inch screen laptop and a tall latte on one small table.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Overhaul my appearance... Probably just get some of those stylists we see on TV these days to give me lots of free clothes, free make-up and loads of advice and a huge voucher for shoes. Maybe dye my hair red:)

Also freckles, would get rid of most of them in a flash. Of course, all sorts of facials and pedicures and massages and whatever other cool things spas offer. Don't know if plastic surgery would be something I'd include, but ask me again in 10 years.

[Error: unknown template qotd] An acquaitance is someone who I can share the more shallower information with. I don't dislike them, in fact I enjoy spending time with them. We can talk about movies, complain about the fuel hikes and share the more 'general' talks. I think it is fair to say that looking from the outside, you would think we are good friends.

The difference with a friend is that: A friend is someone who I confide in, someone who knows me well enough that they can spot if I am not doing well even if I do not mention it, and be concerned. They know they'll get support from me if the situations were reversed.They are the people I trust and I know I'm trusted by them in return.

Perhaps it is a tall order and I may be mistaken about people and friendship and my perceptions on people. I do know this: Those are the  rare few, who are content being friendless.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Lots of comfort food and light reading along the lines of David Eddings and maybe watch a crime drama to calm the nerves.

[Error: unknown template qotd] Early 1900s and late 1800s I think, it was interesting era where science started overtaking tradition. Perhaps in an Utopian type future, similar to the Star Trek one sans the impending annihilation from the current baddie of the week. What can I say, colour me boring.
