I AM

GOING TO WRITE IN CAPITALS. I'M IN THAT KIND OF MOOD; YOU KNOW THE ONE: TIRED, CRASHING FROM CAFFEINE, MODERATELY STRUNG OUT BUT STILL COHERENT. OR, PERHAPS, YOU DON'T. IN FACT, YOU PROBABLY DON'T. BUT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT; IT MAKES YOU WANT TO TYPE IN CAPS. PERHAPS IT'S FOR IRONIC PURPOSES (WHICH I HAVE YET TO DETERMINE) OR FOR EMPHASIS. TYPICALLY, CAPITALS ARE USED TO EXPRESS ANGER. I FIND EXPRESSING ANGER OVER THE INTERWEBS TO BE SILLY. I FIND ANGER IN GENERAL SILLY. PERHAPS THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS WRONG WITH ME. I'M NOT SURE. I THINK I'M TRYING TO EXPRESS THE PANIC ASSOCIATED WITH MINOR DELIRIUM AND PARANOIA. A HURRIED PANIC THAT INVOLVES NO EXCLAMATION POINTS OR HARSH WORDS BUT ONE THAT IS MERELY PERSISTANT AND NAGGING, ONE THAT STANDS AT THE FOREFRONT OF YOUR CRANIUM NO MATTER WHAT ACTIVITY YOU MAY BE ENGAGING IN. FOR SOME REASON, CAPITAL LETTERS EXPRESS THIS FOR ME. ACCOMPANYING THIS MOOD IS USUALLY SOME MANNER OF MILD GESTICULATION THAT PARALLELS THE RAPID TYPING ON MY KEYBOARD. I FIND THAT CAPITALS EXPRESS THIS AS WELL.

ENVISION; TEXT MODES THAT EXPRESS THE MOOD OF THE TYPIST...MOVING OR SHAKING? WOULD HAVE TO BE FOR STATIC PRESENTATION...BUT COULD WORK FOR INSTANT MESSAGING...PROBABLY BETTER FOR IM...BUT IT COULDN'T BE CHOSEN...WHAT KIND OF INTERFACE TO DETERMINE STATUS? WEBCAM? NO. SHITTY IDEA
