We've heard a lot in the few years about FOMO, an Internet phenomenon that results from looking at social media and believing that everyone out there is having more fun than you are. It means "Fear Of Missing Out," and I feel pangs of it like anyone else.
It's particularly potent when the event in question took place within visual distance of your house, as was the case for me this morning when I saw pictures from the party thrown last night on the Warner Bros. lot, which I can see from my living room window. I didn't expect an invite, of course. I don't know Ciara, and it was her 30th birthday party where all this mayhem took place.
