Despite various friends singing its praises, I don’t have a gmail account yet. Here’s why:

1. italics. Is it true that gmail doesn’t do italics? Because, really, I can’t live without them.
2. I’m happy with my yahoo account. Why be unfaithful if nothing’s wrong?
3. (This is the biggest one) I can’t think of a good name. An email account should have a name that’s easy to remember, isn’t embarrassing to give out to people, and is unique. The kind where your college calls you to ask for money and check your contact info, and the person making the call says “cool email address.” Because that’s where I’m at now, folks.

If someone gives me a good idea, I just might make the switch.
