Logging On

Now Playing: Phillip Glass , 'Morning Passages'

I'd never quite realised how utterly unsociable / dehumanising computers can be, until I wandered along five carriages of the Eurostar train and spotted the loud, boisterous happy family of four who had irritated me so much in the ticket queue by singing, chatting, playing with the door sensors.
At a family table, three of them had assembled their laptops, and all stared glumly and silently ahead, tapping away, while the youngest sat bored and unencumbered by technology.
The presence of three liquid crystal screens had sapped all the verve and lively interchange from them. They seemed barely conscious of each other's presence, and the youngest kicked the wall disconsolately, ignored.
I know I'll sound an awful prig saying it, but somehow I think the loud and annoying games of Snap, Dominoes, Cheat, Lady and Queenie of my childhood train journeys seem preferable.

Dominoes loud?

Give me a brittle plastic cup and a game of Yahtzee and I'll show you loud and annoying. I'm amazed I ever survived that nightime flight back from the USA.
