[personal profile] ladycaviar
I can't decide whether it was my father or my brother who was the actual pusher. And I have to tell my story because I see it happening to all of you.

Once, I was a happy Luddite. I didn't want to be dragged into the 20th century. I didn't have a computer, much less a cell phone. I learned computers on punch cards, and I was happy. Then my brother gave me a computer made out of weird old parts with a creepy old TV for a monitor, and said, "it won't hurt you." It had a 64K hard drive. This was in the 1990s, really. Then my father insisted I get email because he was tired of paying long distance bills to Idaho. And it began...

Innocently hitting links to yahoo!, I made a geocities page. How could I know this was worse than downloading porn? My brother just about had a heart attack. Little did I know I would ruin his repuation with his corporate clients by going geocities, and ladycaviar.com was born.

Next, I ebayed. Then, I signed up for lists. Not enough? I LiveJournaled and became a Blogger! Not content with just selling old crap around the house, I created crap! Crap on demand! In for a penny, in for a pound! Hell, I've had a first husband, I don't have to pretend to be a virgin anymore, I have a Myspace page! . I spit out html at the dinner table, when once I never would have used it in polite company. I have no shame.

Where will it end? Who will be next? I'm looking at you...
