technology tuesday

what technology can you not live without???

me?

email.
i remember the day we were introduced
a crisp fall day in 1992
i was a freshman in college
with an office job on campus
in the computer science dept
so they gave me an email address
i loved it
it was on a black screen
and i logged onto a main frame of some sort
no bells and whistles
but now i am wondering...
who the hell did i email?
the ladies i worked with?
sitting ten feet from me?
people barely had pc's then
and this was a full year before the university
issued a student account to all students
nonetheless...
love at first sight.
despite a few spats in our 16 year relationship
we are still going strong.

i asked hubs the same question...
his technology of choice?

indoor plumbing...
okay
self explanatory.

what technology can you not live without?

i have never thought of indoor plumbing as a "technology"...too funny!! I would have to say the computer. Almst everything I do, I do on the computer. I can't remember when I started using email liek you can remmeber...btu i know i would be lost without it now....i prefer to communicate by email at work, heck even at home sometimes, saves on yelling, "pick your mess up!" lol

HOW DID HUBS OR I NOT COME UP WITH DVR???????????

PERHAPS BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A PART OF OUR LIFE, WE OVERLOOKED IT!

I CANNOT WATCH LIVE TV.
SO SPOILED!
