Wow! It’s Wednesday! How Cool Is Your Email Address?

yahoocarSo, I used to know a lot people with aol email addresses, now I know exactly one, and I don’t think she kept the addy to be hip or ironic, which is funny, b/c at least one blogger is claiming that it is now at the very height of hipster retro cool to have one of these.

This of course got me to thinking about all the email addresses I’ve known before.

I’m a Yahoo girl myself. Started off with Hotmail, then signed up for yahoo when I decided to try a bunch of new things during my first summer in Los Angeles, when I interned at Warner Bros Television between grad school years, ate a lot of Mexican food, and dated a surfing lawyer. Yahoo and Mexican food were the two things that stuck by the time I came back L.A. for good, especially after Hotmail proved to me that it was incapable of coming up with even a halfway decent spam algorithm.

A few years ago, I meant to jump on the Gmail bandwagon with all the other cool geeks, but somehow that didn’t happen either. And now, having a Yahoo account kinda makes me feel like a rebel. So unless Yahoo goes out of business, I’ll probably just be with them forever. Maybe it, too, will become hipster retro cool, but somehow I doubt it.

Really, I mostly Facebook everyone I know these days anyway.

What email program do you use? Do you like it better than other programs or are you like me, just too lazy and settled to change? Also, do you feel your email program says anything about you? Let us know in the comments.
