The Low-Fidelity All-Star: he was born with the cool, and it's totally natural.  He runs the gamut from Hipster Supreme (only they can ingest as much coffee as he) to the geeky hipster
What Kind of Hipster Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

I am not feeling like any kind of hipster. I finally reached overload last night and ran out of my tai-chi class at the mere suggestion of doing partner work. I don't normally object to it, but I've been feeling I've lost myself in all the recent socialising. I did some maths: out of the last 24 days, I've had precisely 1 where I've not had to interact with anything more than the woman who sells me the Guardian in the corner shop. I like having entire weekends where all I do is say "thank you" to her. I'm quirkyalone. I'm Emily the Lost. I'm a loner, baby, so why don't you all just leave me in peace?as Beck didn't sing. And the idea of doing chi work that involved connecting with others was just too horrific. I was definitely in need of my own space.

Phoned in sick this morning and spent the entire time under the duvet. Back in work now, but still longing for stillness. I was planning a long weekend on my own, then foolishly suggested going to Trash City at the Cavern on the Saturday. That's OK, I thought, the rest of the time is my own. Except now I have an appointment in London on Monday at 10am so have to travel up on Sunday and stay with Tina-friend. So no chance for alone time. Going to blow out the Cavern so at least I get all of Saturday in silence. The attic is all set up for work again, with tea, coffee, sweetners, the old kettle etc, and I'm working on the Prologue of Warring States, so hopefully I'll just grab the Guardian on Saturday morning and spent the rest of the day up there.

Oh! It's snowing again!
