Pardon me if I sound like a crotchety old woman*, but it just blows my mind how kids today will grow up in a world where high-speed internet, DVRs, smartphones, iPads, and the like are more or less the norm. It’s funny to think that just a decade and a half ago, cell phones were a rare luxury, and if you had one it was far clunkier than most cordless landline phones are today** (think Zach Morris brick phone).
*In case you’re wondering, I’m just shy of my 24th birthday (it’s this Saturday!!), hardly advanced of age.
**Sidenote: how many of you even have a landline today? We have one because it came bundled with the cable and internet, but have yet to plug in an actual phone.
The matchbook girl… mixes a mean cocktail. Are y’all familiar with Matchbook Magazine? A self-proclaimed “field guide to a charmed life,” it’s a digital magazine, and a treat I eagerly anticipate reading every month. Fresh and witty, it manages to combine the polish of a more traditional print magazine with the immediacy and relevance of a blog.
