But I hear ya on your example. It's not like you could text all that important stuff to someone. How is Chuck doing, btw? (Totally high-jacking your thread!)

I do hate that I wouldn't even know what was happening with some of my friends if it weren't for facebook. Like if I want to know something I have to check their facebook updates instead of having them tell me personally. That's lame.
Carly, I email myself all the time. Instead of leaving myself sticky notes, I email myself. I figure it's easier because I can access the info anywhere (at home or out on my phone) AND I'm helping the environment by not wasting paper.
It's a win-win!

I much prefer text/email because it allows the other person to answer you at their leisure and allows you to respond when you want too. It's not like the phone where you have to drop everything you are doing and concentrate on the convo.
I kinda like the advances in technology. I know it's a little sad to think you can only stay connected because of technology, but at least it's some connection!

i am SO electronically in the loop! which is funny cause up until about 2 years ago i was so out of it. we didnt have a computer or phones that did more than simple texting. but now that ive got a laptop, cool cell phone, ipod touch, im unstoppable haha
i love using FB. i only wish more of my family were on it so i could make sure they all know what im up to. i try to update my status a couple times a day depending on whats going on. i guess i figure, im such a voyuer (sp?) that i love seeing pics, reading status, etc of everyone else, that they all should like to do the same of me as well!
i love being able to kit with people from my ipod touch as well, it gives me twitter, text, fb, myspace, everything except the phone.
as far as phone/in person chatting, i talk on the ohone A LOT to my hubby and my mom, but not many other people. i am BIG on texting, unless ive got a lot to say then email is easier to type it all out. i used to be big on the calling when i had a lot to say, but ever since we got a laptop and the forum came into my life, i find it so much easier and faster to communticate how i feel/what i want/what im talking about, when i can go back and edit and re-type what i meant! as long as you dont hit "send" until you're sure what you meant haha
in person? sure, if it happens. its just that my life is so busy when im not at work, chasing around after the kids and doug, that i dont have a lot of free time to make "appointments" with my family and friends. my spare free time (when i can grab some) is spent doing laundry or napping! it sounds rude, but i dont want to be bothered by taking time away from my "me" time to catch up with my friends and family! i really dont mean it to be rude, its just that i dont have hardly any time for it! not that i dont love being with family and friends when i can, i just dont have time to so it makes it feel like a chore, kwim?

We actually don't even have a land line cuz we use the phone so infrequently. I've been screwed before when my cell was misplaced cuz then I am really outta touch!
