Over the weekend I was explaining to Darling Husband that I had so many different email accounts and messenger accounts, both on AIM and yahoo! that I was starting to have trouble remembering who I was being at any given time and on which computer.
It started out innocently enough. I had one email address. Not counting the corporate one I had for work. But then I went to work for myself so I had to get a second email address for work. Okay, then I got an AIM for work from home stuff. Then I got another email for this blog to keep everything anonymous. I thought, you know, surely I won't need more emails than that and not any more messgener id's either. But then I took another client so created another email just for that client so none of the communications would get confused or lost with my first client. And along with that came a separate AIM as was required by the client. But then I stopped doing that client. And have since gotten a third client and created an email for them for just the same reason as I did the second. Oh, shut it, it makes sense to me.....*grin*
Then Darling Husband and I created an online account to try and meet like minded (not so very churchy) friends which required another email address and yahoo msgr id. Then, Darling Husband finally got me to commit to starting an adult webpage of myself. It went live on the 5th of this month and I already have 5 paying members! That required an email all to its own, of course, so people can email me what they think. They've all be quite complimentary which is so very surprising because I'm so not that girl.
I'm a BBW (big, beautiful woman) but really I like to think of myself as fluffy and fabulous. Anyway, in addition to the special email I also created yet another yahoo msgr under that name so that I can chat with those who are paying members. Really? I have paying members to my site? Who'dathunkit? Any way, if this keeps up, I'm thinking of starting a new feature called fan mail Fridays where I paste in emails from people who contact me. You'd be surprised how funny some of them are. I will remove all names to keep it from being mean.
So when I count it up, that's 6 email accounts and 4 messenger accounts between yahoo and AIM. Too many? Hmmmm.....
