Just this very minute I had a huge blast from the past. Does anyone remember ICQ? Does it even exist anymore? Anyway, when I was first getting to know Handsome online we used ICQ almost exclusively to chat. We would both log on, hopefully at the same time, and send messages. If I remember correctly we could actually chat or just send messages. Whenever I received a message it would make a sound - uh oh!
But directly before it actually said uh oh I could normally hear my computer processing so it gave me a bit of warning that it was coming. I just came to expect it.
Well just this minute I was reading some blogs and my computer started whirring and for a split second I thought - oh I must be getting a message on ICQ.
Regardless of the fact that I haven’t used ICQ in ten years and it’s not even loaded on this computer. Isn’t it amazing how our brains work? And boy, does that bring back memories.
