In the early 1960’s, airlines would not allow flight attendants to dye their hair. One executive railed, “If you let those girls run wild, there’s no telling what could happen. They might end up with green hair to match the seat coverings. “
Isn't Dialup so great and archaic. :)
Dial-up is like having a permanently broken leg, and only one ear, with the sort of hearing that can only listen to one thing at a time. I hate that broadband's so expensive in my parts.
I think that;s considered I mental illness when you do it on purpose.

Manic Panic Sapphire blue eventually turns hideous green in natural blondes.
No, I never preview. I moslty post on bulletin boards for the insane, so we are allowed to edit w/out deleting our posts entirely.

Re: Manic Panic Sapphire blue eventually turns hideous green in natural blondes.
Ooooh no. Did you try Manic Panic Sapphire?
Hehe! Doing anything unusual is bound at least to raise eyebrows.
Hmm? Being too poor for having broadband you mean?
I think I was referring to the permanently broken leg/ only one ear (a la Vincent van Gogh) situation fireghost referred to above.
My connection is kind of like an idiopathic seizure disorder. I'm in a downtown apt. right now, and I, uh, borrow WI-FI from uhhhh. . . somebody. But I can only connect when like Mercury is rising in the 7th house of Dante's 4th circle of Hell. And Saturn, Jupiter, and the Earth's moon have to be aligned, plus it has to be a low-ozone, low-smog day, which is pretty much unheard of in the industrial belt. I think that's probably why my best chance at connectivity is in the middle of the night.
Oooh, sorry about the confusion.
And totally. *nod* Makes sense to me. ;)
I know. We found a pretty cheap way to do it though, so I think we're gonna get it.
I read recently of kids who've never even heard of dial-up. Yours will be another. Blessed, in some ways, is the next generation!
True that. A generation ago people didn't know what the f'ing internet was. What a world.
I know. But it saved one a lot of bother replying to comments! ;)
Seriously, though, without the internet there'd be no LJ, no random postings from a certain random poster, and no guests in her journal - all of which I appreciate. :)
hehe. :) I appreciate you too, darling. This is such a fun place. I really like the energy. I gotta go to sleep soon though. I'm a tired random, yo.
