I'm So Over Hotmail

I never log into my hotmail account anymore, not even through MSN messenger (after getting gmail 3 years ago, really). Since getting a Mac I just use Adium as my chat client at home and at work I log in through web-based Meebo. Apparently it’s been a while since I actually checked my hotmail email because I went to do so today and my account was shut down.

I mean, no one sends me hotmail anymore except maybe an old friend from over 2 years ago that doesn’t know I have a gmail account or something. So I go to log into my hotmail and it tells me that “this account has been reserved for you!”. I re-activate it and log into my inbox. My personal folders are all there still but everything is gone. It purged my past, cleaned my slate and I just don’t ever want to log into that service anymore… ever. I have emails from my sister that she sent when I was in Boston, my niece’s 1st birthday invitation, my mom’s first ever email to me, and just a huge archive of ghosts and memories from my past. But it’s okay hotmail, I’m over you and you’re 90s ways. I don’t need your email archives. I have photos and memories and real people to remind me of things. So there.

Side note, my butt was in the LAist today. We were taking the photo above while it was taken… from behind.

    I love that your ass is famous in LA.

    Seriously, we’re hot. It’s true.

    I had fun tonight, but we’ll have even more fun cruising and rockin’ out to MmmBop. It’s true.

    P.S. What’s Hotmail?

  2. Miss604 says:

    What’s Hotmail? I hear it’s something like Blogspot ms ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh man… MmmBop will be great, you be Taylor, I’ll be… uh that other chick

  3. Keira-Anne says:

    You can be Zak or Isaac…but if I were you, I’d pick Zak because Isaac was sadly usually known as “the ugly one.”

    Good blogspot comeback, by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰ That made me laugh.

  4. Tawcan says:

    Hotmail is absolutely horrible… 99.99% emails I’ve been getting on hotmail are junks. Thank you M$ for all the spams!

  5. Duane Storey says:

    Yeah hotmail sucks.. I hardly use it at all. I don’t think I’ve ever had a spam on gmail make it through the spam filter.

  6. tony says:

  7. Keira-Anne says:

    True, Tony, but sometimes the ass is more important than the face.

  8. Miss604 says:
