I Am Not Cool Enough For: FourSquare

One of my colleagues asked me if I use FourSquare or Gowalla*.  I use neither.

For those of you just as uncool as me, FourSquare and Gowalla and similar applications for your mobile device allow you to "check in" at locations and earn badges. In FourSquare, you can be the mayor of a place, and I'm not sure what that's all about.

The fact is, I'm so lame that really, no one has any interest in the places I go. In the last week, I've been to:
  • Target
  • HEB
  • Yoga
  • The outdoor mall near my home
  • A handful of not cool restrurants
And that's pretty much it.  I don't go anyplace cool enough to let other people know about.

*Apparently, I'm so not cool, I didn't realize that the app is name Gowalla and not Govella and Husband had to correct me.
