Home Internets! Cable TV!
« on: January 24, 2007, 04:18:44 PM »
My dear roommate Liz and I now have both feet planted firmly in the 21st century with today's installation of digital cable, cable Internets, and a cable phone.

It's amazing what they can put into one wire these days.

Our apartment currently looks like the biggest audiovisual geeks in the history of humanity live there. 

The cats have lost their minds with glee over all the new wires to play with... and I'm kind of worried that one of them might chew through a wire... and disrupt our cable service.   ;)

But I hope you know what this means... drunken Internetting.

Oh yes.

David

That's 22nd century technology, as far as I'm concerned.  :D

I only just got a cell phone like 4 months ago.  No joke.

I'm rather technophobic... I have difficulty trusting it sometimes. 

Plus, I have a desktop computer... I don't like the thought of carrying something so valuable with me at all times.  And I like getting out without feeling the need to check Myspace every five minutes. 

I'm a "read the newspaper in coffeeshop" sort of person when I'm out.

Thanks, Queen... they're actually pretty good at ignoring wires generally... they're more into knocking full glasses off the coffee table.

We got all this stuff through Comcast, and if the phone goes, we have our cell phones... so those can function as backup.

Hey Benj,

I still have dial-up. So, I guess that plants me somewhere in the 20th Century.



PHILLY! 

Where did you get the photo of Jon King!

OH MY GOD!

I was so infatuated with that guy I was just disgusting. LORDY!

Even today he can make things happen nobody else can - or should I say has.

Sorry for the hijack, but I was really shocked.

Your love is king

Crown you with my heart

Your love is king

Never need to part

Your kisses ring

Round and round and round my head

Touching the very part of me

It's making my soul sing

Tearing the very heart of me

I'm crying out for more

Your love is king

Continuing with the thread hijack a little longer (sorry):

Read this recently:

Britney ís bodyguard is former porn star!
By : Ritu | May 20 2006, 6:28 am GMT

Jon King who is photographed alongside Britney Spears these days is actually a porn star of seventies. However, his mustache looks a bit different now.
