There is, still, something I like about writing by hand that I miss when I’m typing on a keyboard. There is a smoothness to the pen and paper and I like having good penmanship. There is no penmanship at all with a keyboard.
I found this quote by Amy Tan:
“I did not lose myself all at once. I rubbed out my face over the years washing away my pain, the same way carvings on stone are worn down by water.”
People ask if you are sad or tired. I could say yes to those but neither is quite right.… Read the rest
I’ve been having a lot of trouble seeing clearly when trying to read websites. The style seems to be small, pale grey fonts which are very hard to read. No problem for a computer, or other machines. I wonder if these sites which are hard to read just expect machines and not human being to read the information?… Read the rest
Jade Walker posted a quote on Facebook: “It’s not the news that keeps upsetting you. It’s what’s happening that keeps upsetting you.” – Dan Slott
I disagree. Its the way the news is being reported, with lies and propaganda (misinformation, or whatever that trendy word is these days), that’s upsetting me.

Do you remember BookCrossing? It’s been years since I last logged in. Funny that I was thinking of the book which I had last read the last time I was at the site. I couldn’t remember the author or the title, but there it was, first on my profile page.

“Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.”
Idle, incremental, and clicker games, are they good or bad for people who obsess about things? Can an online game like Cookie Clicker help you beat the worse (less physically healthy) habit of chain smoking? Maybe. Luckily, I’m not a smoker so I can’t test out that theory.
But, I thought I would post about my habit, limited obsession, mild addiction, with idle games.… Read the rest
Why are game shows teaching people to scream, jump and jump on other people and things?
My Mother likes to watch game shows: The Price is Right, Let’s Make a Deal, Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune, and the odd other. Wheel of Fortune is the only game show I haven’t seen anyone jump on the host.… Read the rest
