How about MSN giving us some more useful IM statuses. I like “Busy” and “Out to lunch”, but how about some new ones like:
- Stewing (ask me why I am mad)
- Thinking (go away unless you agree with my ideas)
- Be nice to me (sad)
- Playing (it's only Tetris, feel free to bug me)
Etc. What would be some other good ones?
Update: Thinking about this some more, I think the IM status should basically be a weather report. You could report the weather where you are (a la WeatherBug, but without the spyware), or your own emotional weather (mood).
