my recent breakup
I've broken up with Hotmail.
I will admit it, I am one of the only people I know who still had a Hotmail email account. It was my first email account that wasn't associated with AOL, so there is some sentimentality associated with it...ummm...or it's the main one I use for almost everything and I wouldn't even know where to start if something happened to it.
And then...well...something happened to it. Two weeks ago it went wacky on me. Wouldn't let me sign in. Said that it had been "locked" after too many attempts to enter my password. Sketchy. I tried everything...new passwords....sending "help me" notes to Hotmail...cussing at my computer...getting Tommy to work on it with me...creating even more new passwords...cussing even louder...and nothing. Nothing worked.
So. Now I have nooooo idea how I will ever recover all of those IMPORTANT documents, valuable emails regarding my professional associations, email addresses from family, saved emails with recipes, photos and stories...and all of those priceless emails that Tommy and I sent each other during the first couple years of our long distance relationship. (Umm...not to mention all of my bills, credit card and banking emails. Eff.)
I started tonight with changing the email on the few sites that I know of for sure. Slowly. This sucks.
I HATE Hotmail.
*I feel better telling the world my disgust.
