Remember when color bars were all the rage? Me neither. But apparently they once were, at least on LiveJournal. I found one that I made when Henry was sick.


Sick Henry is Yuck

I started doing that work-at-home data entry bullshit that I was doing briefly last winter, after receiving an email out of the blue asking if I’m available for more work. I said yes because we’re going to the beach next summer so I thought maybe I could make some extra cash to help fund that, or at the very least pay for the quotation marks I’m getting tattooed on my fingers this month. Five minutes after I logged in, I remembered just how boring 10-key is and started looking at things on the Internet. Like color bars.

And now you’re caught up with my life.

  1. Yeah…I don’t remember color bars being the rage, but I’ll just go with you on that one :-)

  2. I don’t think I ever even heard of color bars before. Am I really that out of touch?

  3. AHAHAHA I remember color bars and I also remember the LJ post you made this for!

  4. Color bars clearly rock.
    Thanks for the memories!

  5. YES! I had a Tony Almeida color bar! But I like this one of Henry being sick much better.

  6. I remember the color bar rage, I was a big fan myself, I’m not even gonna lie.

    I hope Henry is on the mend, a sick man may as well be another child to take care of, never fun.

    Also, I hope I didn’t upset you on fb with my warning against finger tattoos. I obviously have one, but it’s not been easy to maintain and I wanted to give you a heads up.

    • Henry is good – this was from 2007. Found it when I was poking around old files and it made me laugh because he was so irritated when I was taking those photos, lol!

      No worries on the FB thing. This certainly wasn’t an impulse move; it was something that I had thought about long and hard and sought the advice from some friends who have several finger tattoos, so I was pretty unswayable by the time I posted that on FB.
