It’s now thirteen years since I first had a phone with a camera built into it and decided that I wanted all my phone contacts to be associated with photos of that person on the phone, so when my phone rang it looked like I could see them on the phone.
Since I didn’t get pictures of anyone hanging up, I can only assume these sad, lonely ghosts of 2005 are still on the line, listening to an engaged signal, patiently waiting to talk to me.
I will not answer you, ghosts of the past. Stop calling me.

My favourite is Alex who’s clearly struggling to work out whether he’s happy or extremely pissed off that you’re not picking up.
My favourite is your naked face. Your face hasn’t had its clothes off in years.
My least favourite is my face. I think I had the same image of Ian on my phone for quite some time.
Are these still in use?
Your face is a very young face.
These are not still in use, except for the purpose of taking up space on my hard disk in a long-forgotten folder.
I have one of those folders… hang on.
1st iPhone Chris…
The first two were from 2004, and are at the full resolution they are stored in. It really was an exciting time for contact image camera phone based tech!
It was also an exciting time for haircuts, as the many images on this page attest.
I still have the swiftest hair. I think that makes me happy.
The swiftest hair? I don’t know if your hair is particularly swift in the picture Kev posted. Snazzy, perhaps.
I’d say Chris had the swiftest haircut in the last sideways picture I posted.
It’s only swift because of the angles. There’s nothing swifter than my hair. I’ve got awards.
(Thanks for the snazzy compliment though, Chris)
What awards? Swift hair awards? I watch the annual Swiftest Hair Awards broadcast live from Hollywood and I’ve never seen you on the stage holding a Golden Hairy.
That’s the global annual Swiftest Hair Awards. I am the regional Tyne and Wear champion for the last three years. I do personal appearances all the time. Last week I was visiting one of Kevin’s new poodle grooming parlours in Middlesbrough…
I thought he’d jacked in the grooming game for good? Packed in the poodles for posterity?
Nah, we’re starting rumours again that he’s starting it up again because he wants to get back into the business again because he misses it too much again.
Wait. What? Again?
Yes to all those questions, especially the first one.
I’m so glad.
