Just before my exercises last night I decided to, for some reason or another, go through my pile of old ZIP disks. God, remember those? The ZIP 100 MB could hold as much data as 70 floppies! The 250–even more!
Ahem. I digress. But it was on those ZIP disks that I stored my college assignments from my Screenwriting, Creative Writing and English 100 classes. (How I wrote them is another story that I will most likely tackle in a day or two.)
At any rate, upon further inspection I came across a treasure trove of goodies that were written in the days before I had a blog (although I do faintly remember having a daily journal hosted my Geocities back then). I also found a ridiculous amount of Photoshopped images I created for Fark.com, old images of Ann and myself, our old cars…it was a lot of fun rummaging through these old disks seeing what I could find.
The content of some of these Word documents, a few of which were composed on Word 95, was simple: I would come up with junk that I thought was funny and send it out to a select few in my address book that I thought would find it amusing as well. Hopefully the recipients got a laugh or two out of them.
One of these Word docs was something I called “More Things You Can Do to Annoy People,” a list of things that you could do to, well annoy people. Since this file implies that there was one before it, I’ll keep looking but I sure as hell don’t recall there being more to it than this.
Note that this was written nearly 8 years ago so play along with the references to the pager and TV button references (if you remember such things).
Ready? Here we go!
