Miriam, you've become a real techie with that new Mac!! I haven't had a Skype chat, but I've seen others have them, it seems pretty cool.
I prefer Gmail chat, but yes! I love video chatting! My parents do as well, since we live out of state. I also chat with my twin sister all the time. It's fun! And almost (*almost*) as good as hanging out. :)
I love Skype! My hubby got to read my son a bedtime story tonight via skype. It was fantastic and my son went right to sleep! I don't know what we'd do over the next year without video chat of some sort.
Joanne- I know, it's kind of hilarious isn't it? I was deeply intimidated, but it turned out to be pretty easy!Renee- Ooo, I'll have to check Google chat out! I like video chat better than actual phone, I think. Seeing people's faces is nice. :)Nikky- That's wonderful! I've been thinking about you lately with your husband gone. I'm so glad you get to video chat with him!
I have Skype, but have only used it twice. I don't like it -- I'd rather people imagine me gorgeous than see my dowdy pj's and bed head! :)
Amy- That makes sense. But now that I have it, we should have Skype pizza or something. :)
I don't have Skype. Neither of my husband's or my mom has a computer, which is why at least for now I'd use it.
Natalie- That makes sense. I got it specifically to chat with a writer-friend about a project we're doing, otherwise, I probably wouldn't have thought about it.
