  1. Just here to report that I've put the 18th Jan 2019 into my calendar, in case this happens again. Hope to see some of you guys then!
  3. I suppose the cruelty in having grown up in such an amazing place like this is that it may take over a year for you to find out that an old friend is gone. According to the obituary, your anniversary was exactly a week ago, and I am so, so sorry to find out you're gone. I just don't even have words tonight.
  4. The other day I was catching a train home and ended up talking to this girl. We hit it off (I'm actively recruiting friends in the London region, btw), and so I asked for details. The conversation went thusly:    Me: So do you have facebook? I can add you! Her: No, I don't really use it...I'm one of those people.  Me: Oh okay, what about a phone number?  Her: I do have a number! But I only have an old-school Nokia and I don't really use it. Do you have twitter?  Me: Shit, I don't have one sorry. Instagram? Her: No, phone doesn't take photos so no real use for it. How about e-mail? Me: Oh, sure! I have a gmail -- we could chat?  Her: Here's my hotmail account.    In conclusion, the world is super connected but weirdly not these days, and each time I come back to these boards lately I have a little freak out about the fact that I lost all of these friends that probably have no idea how much I miss them or reminisce. So: I now have a twitter! Because it seems like the most public and least dodgy way to maintain contact? I thought about posting my snapchat name on the internet but was worried I'd end up with an inbox full of dicks -- not from you guys but trolls, mostly.    So I am at @katalilundone , which was originally katalilondon but I entertain myself with silly words.    If I know you from le past and you would like to catch up, please feel free to send me a message either via OB or twitter and I can provide any of the following details:    a) E-mail b) Snapchat c) What's app d) Instagram (which is boring because my local cafe will give you a free Bloody Mary if you instagram pictures of their menu, which is the entire purpose of my instagram)  e) Facebook f) LinkedIn (Although why would you?) g) Skype     I would love to know how to contact all of you, as well, so that I don't have to try to stalk someone like Charlie or Juu to see if they ever cough up contact details! 
  5. I am SO GLAD that I did not try to log on when it was down. Last time I was on the site I cried from nostalgia -- what if I'd thought it was down for good? I would have been inconsolable! 
  6. We lament a lot about the 'pace' of the world and how everything is speeding up with e-mails and texts and twitter, and so on. And I'm a staunch defender of modern technology; it lets me speak to my family halfway around the world, let me carry on a long-distance relationship for a couple of months with as little disruption as possible, and lets me find ways to put my thoughts into actions as quickly as I have thoughts.    Having said that, though, I am starting to come around to the idea that Google killed conversation. When was the last time that you had a discussion, an argument, a debate about some obscure topic and the question, almost as soon as it was raised, was responded with "Oh, let me google that!" -- and the answer provided in 60 seconds (105 seconds if you have a slow connection) ?    I'm pretty sure I did that yesterday, so I'm not trying to pretend that I'm not a culprit. And it's handy having the information at your fingertips -- there has been more than one occasion where I truly enjoyed shooting down my flatmate's stupid idea with a simple swipe of my fingers.    But having said that, recently the boyfriend and I have been 'doing brunch'. It's something we've started because we're both working, and I'm starting a new job that is quite honest about the crazy hours required, and it gives us 'alone' time where I'm not worried about whether or not the kitchen is clean on a Saturday morning.    So we brunch. And we've now got this unspoken rule that, if we are having brunch, the phones stay at home. And suddenly our world just sort of opened up to this long forgotten art of debate for debate's sake, rather than to answer a question. Verbally sparring is fun again, which I never realised I missed until I found it.   In conclusion: next time you head to dinner or whatever, ban the phones and see where it leads! Or tell me about what else google has ruined for you. Or what you think of the modern day conversation. Let's be honest -- even the vaguest link to this topic would work. Heh. 
  7. I've never heard of Reading Rainbow and while I could probably google it, I'd rather hear from those who have experienced it; what was it? What did you enjoy about it - why did you enjoy it? How long was it on the air for? 
  8. I would love to cameo but I literally started a new job today - and since it's a fancy, high-power role with a FTSE100 company, I don't know how much time I will have on a realistic scale! But I would at least like to drive-by! 
  9. Aaaaah....my boyfriend and some of his friends run a Steam community with around 200 members so our server is open to anyone but preference is for members of the community. :)    I've just gotten back into Pokemon and it is awesome. I bought a second hand DS specifically to play it (and pokemon black), and now I really want to get FireRed and HeartGold just to replay the games I grew up with.
  10. Surprised to see your name online! I wonder if the urge to check the old OB hit all the old members at once...

      Perhaps! It was a delight to see yours, too, m'dear.

  11. Boyfriend and I pulling funny faces at a friend's birthday. :]  
  12. My friends and I actually run a minecraft server which is pretty fun. It's at mc.thebohage.com (when you need to provide a server to log into). Maybe I'll see you around! 
  13. I'm never here anymore but suddenly wanted to come for a visit and started reading this thread. I know it's silly since everyone moved on like me, but the idea of losing all the connections I had on here just sort of makes me want to cry. You guys were my childhood. And it was a good one.    If anyone does have facebook and wants to add me, send me a message. I'd love you add you guys. :)  
  14. Holy crap, I never check my profile on here! I only just saw your comment from May, haha.

    I'm "Anabiosis 33" on AIM. We should catch up. :P
