before the blog - was there such a time?



thought i would share some pre-blogosphere pictures of karl and me. check that date imprint out on that first one - December 03. Yea, we're little. (or we look pretty much exactly the same. but whatever.) the second one is an engagement picture - yep, got engaged in the goldfish bathing suit. sept 04!

i was thinking about old school technology and/or lack thereof this morning and found these pictures in my old school yahoo account (use gmail, people, gmail). and i was trying to think of the # of email addys i have had in my lifetime (including jobs and personal, i guess about 15 plus) and how many i currently have (a solid 4 plus; my job forces me to have one for every association we work with but they all funnell into one inbox).

i was thinking about college - and how i didn't even have a computer in college or a cellular telephone (until senior year b/c audra and brooke almost killed me b/c people would call them looking to chat with me). i got my first phone with karl actually (ahhh - a man who can handle and support my phone obsession!) - he helped me pick that little nokia out. i think it was one of our first "dates" b/c you know in college going to best buy together constitutes a date, right? ;) we have decided to start a collection of our phones and someday we will display them all and laugh. maybe our 50 year itch party? i think so.

do i sound like an old lady? ;)

Tear! This post has all of a sudden reminded me how much time has past since we were all a few years younger. It has also reminded me to start reminiscing more often instead of being an "old", busy adult.

P.S. Love the phone idea. I can't quite figure out why, but you're right, it would be pretty funny to pull a twenty-five year old cell phone out of the closet and look at it.
