1 Do people contact you on your cell or house phone more?
Cell phone, I don't get enough phone calls to necessitate having a land line.

2 Do you call or e-mail your friends/family more?
Usually call my family and email/Facebook my friends.

3 Does your cat/dog/bird/baby/stuffed animal have a livejournal/e-mail/myspace account?
My cat does have a Myspace account.

4 What do you think will replace the internet?
Probably a newer version of the internet where you can log on with your brain. Who knows.

5 How do you feel about VHS's not being made anymore? Well, I have a ton of them, but I prefer DVDs. Except I will admit I do record things I want to watch on VHS because after a few uses DVD RWs tend to skip which is annoying and I refuse to use a DVR.

1. Do people contact you on your cell or house phone more? Home phone.

2. Do you call or e-mail your friends/family more? Email.

3. Does your cat/dog/bird/baby/stuffed animal have a livejournal/email/myspace account? My cat had a blog on Blogspot, but he, uh, hasn't updated lately...

4. What do you think will replace the internet? Holodecks!

5. How do you feel about VHS's not being made anymore? A little sad since I grew up with them, but DVDs are much, much better IMO. There's so much more you can put on them, and they're easier to navigate.

1. Do people contact you on your cell or house phone more?
I only have a home phone (for now) because it makes my cable/internet bill cheaper (yay Comcast package deals). But I get contacted by phone way more -- possibly by Facebook IM even more than my phone.

2. Do you call or e-mail your friends/family more?
They usually call me. I'm so bad at initiating conversations.

3. Does your cat/dog/bird/baby/stuffed animal have a livejournal/e-mail/myspace account?
My cats used to have a "Catbook" when that was an application of Facebook, but that's about it.

4. What do you think will replace the internet?
To be honest, it will take a collapse of organized society as we know it for the internet to be replaced. I see it more morphing into newer forms than being replaced outright.

5. How do you feel about VHS's not being made anymore?
It had to be done. I only have one VHS player, and it's still at my parent's house. I've already bought the DVD versions of my old movies, and I prefer DVDs way more, anyway. It needed to go the way of the cassette.

1) Do people contact you on your cell or house phone more?
Cell. I don't even have a house phone.

2) Do you call or e-mail your friends/family more?
Does Skype count as calling? Because that's what I use most. And I don't tend to email so much as gchat, Skype chat (typing rather than talking), or AIM.

3) Does your cat/dog/bird/baby/stuffed animal have a livejournal/e-mail/myspace account?
No, but I have lots of LJ accounts for roleplaying purposes, mostly Harry Potter characters. I once had a Regulus Black Facebook account, but Facebook shut him down due to "impersonation" anal retentiveness.

4) What do you think will replace the internet?
Mind-meld powers.

5) How do you feel about VHS's not being made anymore?
I don't really care, as long as we still have ways to PLAY old VHS tapes, or at least convert them into digital files to watch, so I can still watch old family movies, etc.

1. Do people contact you on your cell or house phone more?
I'm rarely home, so most people know to try me on my mobile. That said, only family, friends and my boss have that number. Everyone else can leave a message for me at home.

2. Do you call or e-mail your friends/family more?
I tend to text more than either of those. Or send messages on Facebook, if it needs to be long.

3. Does your cat/dog/bird/baby/stuffed animal have a livejournal/e-mail/myspace account?
No. Just... No.

4. What do you think will replace the internet?
I don't know that anything will.

5. How do you feel about VHSs not being made anymore?
I don't care. DVD is much more convenient. I can still play my old videos (for now), if I really want to.
