Hotel Torbreck.  Where everyday you get a new towel.

I read a book recently, Noir, by KW Jeter (yes he's a current fad, a current flame, a fashion, a hook, I admit it...).  Anyway, in this book he uses the word "connect" as a curse word.   It's the future where information is king and everyone is connected everywhere.  I guess he means connecting to people has replaced fucking, so it's also taken that word's place in the lexicon of swearing.

Anyway, I was just in the shower (yes, ready to use my new towel!), and I realised it'd been so long since i connected with anybody.  And it didn't feel like a curse word.  Connecting was the basic human need I missed.
