Yesterday I did a really brave and long overdue thing: I deleted my Hotmail account.
To commemorate this event, I sent a final @hotmail.com email to my friends and family, letting them know I’ve moved on and also where they can get a hold of me now.
I was so amused with my email that I’m sharing it with y’all. And since only my mom, my grandma, and my friend Keri actually read my blog … sorry for making you read this again.
Hello, dear friends and family members (also former co-workers and generally decent human beings)!
I am so happy to announce that I will no longer be using this Hotmail account. Why I didn’t make this decision way back in the 90s (yah, that was, like, a really long time ago), I have no idea. Maybe I’m just stuck in the past.
Or maybe I really like emails sent on my behalf pushing libido enhancers and/or xxx girls girls girls.
Nonetheless, I would like to assure you that I’ve made it to the 21st century, kicking and screaming, much like I did when my mom dropped me at daycare for the first time. Or the time when I had to get my blood tested for mono. Or my first day of university. (People CAN grow–I’m proof!)
So now that I’ve really drawn you in, aren’t you curious what my fancy new email address might be?
I kid, I kid.
It’s actually phoenixortheflame(at)icloud.com, to coincide with my new-ish blog phoenixortheflame.com (shameless plug).
Ooo I feel so mature!
Well, happy Wednesday, friends. Or as my camel friends like to say, happy half-week? (You thought I was gonna say Hump Day, didn’t you? Got you good!)
So, yeah, that was it. And do you know what my dear friend Keri emailed me at my fancy new email address? See below:
I bet you were laughing the whole time you wrote that. I’m going to forward it back to you in a couple of months so you can have a good chuckle.
She knows me so well 🙂
Also, if you have any questions or are interested in working with me, feel free to contact me at the above email address. (If you email fungirl, however, I probably won’t reply. Probably.)
