GeoCities closing

July 10, 2009 § 8 Comments

I have fond memories of biking to the library or a friend’s house and creating websites using “strict HTML” on GeoCities (and Angelfire!). My best friend and I were so proud of ourselves for learning the basics, and we wasted no potential URL name. Another friend made a blog (before the term was coined) that was a great read! It was tedious but elegant.

Myspace is too easy.

I’m a little sad that GeoCities is closing, but that’s how the cookie crumbles.

I just deleted this page, but apparently I was an annoying girlfriend who liked dark-colored skirts. The necklace is cute though. I definitely don’t remember making this.

Here are the links that haven’t expired:

http://www.overstock.com/Clothing-Shoes/Pinko-Dark-Grey-Mini-Skirt/880086/product.html

And now I’ve immortalized this now embarrassing phase in my life on my cool new blog that will never go anywhere.

    Does this wishlist still apply? You could send it to Jim. :)

    The wishlist has definitely expired, along with several of the links.

    Jared was my pre-Jim. :) We’re much better now.

    Hey Elizabeth (ElizabethLacy?)

    I saw your question on Champaign Taste. I just saw Skinny Cow products at the County Market on Springfield last week. Hope this helps!

    Thank you so much!! :) Sometimes there are just too many grocery stores around here, you know?

    I wonder if Skinny Cow is seasonal….
