Growing Up

Nefarious is off at a birthday party and sleepover today at a friend's house… They have a truly beautiful house — maybe the nicest one I've ever seen in Toronto. It's an older house that previous owners have shifted to a partial open-concept setup and it's incredibly nicely done (and the current owners have a higher google profile than I do by far, which was neat!).

I don't think I slept over at a friend's house until I was at least five years older than she is… probably more! So I was thinking about all the things that are different now than when I was a kid… A partial list of things that Nefarious has grown up with that were not a part of my growing up:

  • The internet (the biggest by far)
  • Autonomous robot assistance (like Roombas)
  • Recycling
  • Cellphones and portable communications
  • Mainstreaming of cosmetic surgery
  • Tattoos and body modification
  • Blending of adult and children's culture/entertainment
  • Being an only child and that being fairly normal

Anyway… A night off… what should I do? Watch a movie and eat a bag of hickory sticks in my underwear or something? Sounds alright…

PS. Pauly, Josh, and I (with work by Howie and photos by Lane) are on Digg for the BIZARRE feature).

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
