To feel xeroxed is to feel vulnerable, to feel that you could be copied. Although the emotion is not new the name has come into being sometime in the sixties or seventies. Xerox the company made it’s name with the first photocopier in the world in 1959. In the sixties to nineties xerox was synonymous with photocopying and I presume that the emotion xeroxed came into being somewhere in this time. Feeling xeroxed is something that perhaps a lot of bloggers feel but I take minor precautions and trust that the world is basically good and wouldn’t do it.
So I don’t feel x-rayed – yes another synonym for vulnerable, violated with the added meaning of transparent. Nor do I feel xd out, unimportant. I could start to think that I was talking a foreign language and that is one thing that I don’t feel xenophobic. In fact I thing that blogging is a really good way of overcoming any fear of strangers or the unknown that one may have. Blogging we find that we are all much the same with the same needs and desires, the same hurts and feelings.
You might not always feel xmasy but the good feeling is often there and I know that I often feel xoxoed particularly when I write something that people relate to. They know how I felt or feel and the much appreciated hugs and kisses come in and I do feel xoxoed.
