You know, I can't keep up with the pace of chatrooms either.
You gotta be a speed reader, speed typer, and still be able to focus on the board as it scrolls faster and faster (while you're still typing your response from the last page in a beer-induced frenzy).
It's like a party and you have 45 people talking at once in small clusters and you're trying to keep up with all the conversations. It's impossible!
I find a cluster I like and jump right in. Usually they kick me out of the cluster but sometimes they let me stay.....and then I find myself in a cluster of older women talking about hot flashes.
Then I pick out the "babeness", look her straight in the eyes and tell her, "I feel your pain."
