I’m sitting in the soulless Blenz at Richards and Davie Street, working on a proposal. We like this Blenz because there are few distractions to work–it’s too bleak and generic to make you want to do anything else.
One of the baristas is on her break, and sitting at the next table. She didn’t bring a book or anything–just her phone. I’m always curious about how young people use technology, so I snuck a peak. I figured she’d be texting friends or something, but she’s playing sudoku. Interesting.
She is not, despite the ubiquitous advertising, watching Pirates of the Caribbean 2 on her phone. That seems like the lamest way possible to experience a film.
