Show me my Motto!

Who me? Watch too much television? You've got to be kidding. ;) That is my current favourite line from anything...and it happens to be the Sprite commercials with the little plasticeine doll with the 'fro.

I tend to type too quickly when I'm posting. I type much faster than my computer displays the strokes on themonitor. The problem with this, is that I end up posting a lot of typographical errors. My computer is a bazillion years old, so it tends to get confused if I ask it to do too many things at once--like load my email and type a blog. God forbid if I try to load two web pages at once. Then I usually go into the kitchen and fix myself a snack, watch Days of our Lives, wash the car, and then come back and it's nearly done loading. This is also the reason that I don't generally bother to FIX most of my typos.

I don't like posting typos though, as strangers don't know that I am quite literate, and very capable of yping an error free sentence. I never look at the keys, and count on being able to see the monitor to tell me when to correct errors. When I can 't see the mistakes, and it's going to take me an extra 15 minutes to correct it, I generally don't bother. Sorry folks, but I will try harder, I swear.

Yesterday I did a bad thing and went shopping. I did fairly well, and bought a table runner (on clearance for $7.00); a funky striped serving dish with 3 matching dip bowls (also on sale, $9.75); and some pickle forks at $0.50 each (1/2 price!). Gee, a discerning reader would think that I might be planning a party. :) I just need to meet more single men first...or meet someone who knows more single men. :)

I am off for a walk now. My legs are almost fully healed from my foray to the ghym with Lynn (not quite a full week!) and it's time to get some exercise. Not to mention that the ball tournament is coming up, and I need to make sure I'm not this gimpy for another week in September. Bleh!

Line shamelessly lifted from Drew Carey. "Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar."
