Don't go changin' your email address.
Not only will you have to go to every website imaginable and update to your new address;
You will find the gmail does not want you to sign onto AIM via gchat (which I finally figured out how to fix while searching forums for 80 hours);
You will not be able to figure out how to update your blogger account to your new email address, which is just lovely. (Has anyone done that before btw? I'm about to save, then delete my blog, then open it up again under my new email address...but I'm scared!!!!);
You will lose your Gchat (gchat, seems like a bad word) contacts;
And people you follow on Google Reader;
And then you will cry.
