(and yes, i'm aware of trillian, but it keeps crashing on my system...)
i don't understand how people, for one, can im you and assume INSTANTLY that you simply must have dropped *every*single*other*thing* you may have been doing prior to their contacting you, and thusly you simply must be talking to them *at*all*times*, and if you lag in your conversation, they barriage you with "hello?"'s and "you there?" and and and... egads, and even the biggest affront, they BUZZ you.
what the...?!!? i'm sorry that i have the attention span of a drunken flea on crack. i get distracted by shiny objects. the television is quite shiny, for one. i may be doing other things, such as actually reading my friends list for once... do not be demanding of me, please. this will only make me avoid you like i avoid shoulder pads.
