current song: everything beautiful is far away

I wrote a lot of shit last night..........

And erased it all.


I'm sure I had my reasons.

*scratches head*

Certainly, I had my reasons.........

The thing I was most pleased by, was to learn I can type again.
I can feel this machine, again....
It is a different size than the last one, and I couldn't for awhile.
The keyboard....

Fingers can find the keys again.

Don't have to look down.


I am stunned by how many of my "younger" Friends, cannot type.
I took it in High School.......
I use all my fingers.
Passed with a B
(40 words per minute no mistakes)
'cause I was too busy typing poetry
for Christopher Carter Whatley in 1986,
to pay toooo
much attention.

But I have read that people 20 and younger actually have more dexterous
THUMBS than I do.

The machines are teaching "us" to use our opposable digit
with a dexterity never known before.

(how do you dial your cell phone)

I don't have a cell phone.

::looks at her thumbs::

Sad, really.
I need to start playing video games.....
It's like those sounds in Mandarin I was never able to pronounce.

My EXTRA synapsis died by the age of THREE.....
I never had a chance.
I will never be able to pick out and reproduce those sounds.

::looks long and hard at her thumbs. but not at her keyboard::

I think I will be okay anyway.
What I really want, is a prehensile tail.

Things to DO
Things to DO!

I want a prehensile tail! But not just any kind...one with an opposable GRIPPER on the end!

Bad Girl

Well--you are the Boy with a pair of jeans, designed to conceal weapons.


And your tail is just fine the way it is.

aside from the cell phones and videogames themselves, there's only three things thumbs need agility for.

and i'm not typing any of them.
