I love the 1920s as an era, and the flapper look does something for me even if it de-emphasises the womanly curves and bumps that I prefer.

As with all historic periods, though, the lack of modern standards of medicine and hygiene would put me off wanting to have lived then.

Which reminds me of one very peculiar way of making somebody's acquaintance that once happened to me. I started a new job and introduced myself to the other girl in the office. She shook my hand and asked, "Would you know how to get rid of pubic lice?".

I think I'd have wanted to know her interest before shaking hands.

Apparently she had shaken different things during the preceding weekend.

I lived most of my life without the internet. I could just about manage to do so again, although it would be less convenient in many ways. Mobile phones I could definitely live without.

Couldn't live without mobile phones. As someone who has tended to people in car accidents, collapses, a boat rolling onto their legs, assaults and other sorts of emergencies, a mobile phone is invaluable. I also use my iPhone in place of my computer some of the time now. I have Googled things for people and helped them out on, when you have children, power outages and in Australia where things are over long distances, a mobile phone is very important to me. I remember the days of trying to find a pay phone... *shudder*

I kinda miss pay phones. Sometimes I pee on my mobile when making call to just bring back the atmosphere of a public kiosk.

Do you stick used gum to it and grind out cigarette butts too?

No but I do blue tack calling cards from ladies of the night on my window and drop half a bag of cold chips in the corner.

I'm disappointed you apparently never threw up on it, or had a - na, let's not go there.
