A fun way to spend the holidays.
For those still not in the know, I have my right arm in a cast after an extreme karting accident. Broke a bone by ramming my kart into some other dude, if you know what I mean ;-). This means that for my left arm’d sake, I’m dictating most of what I type now, and it actually “translates” smiley-faces for me. Unfortunately, that also means it has trouble writing anything that sounds like “winky-face”.
It truly is a joy though, having my arm wrapped up all cozy like this. And so I feel almost obligated to share it with you all. I hereby tag Mark, “Brian and Brendan” (thanks, dictation) and Nasreen to take part in the Lefty Challenge with me! Break something in your right arm, got it cast, and join in my suffering for the next six or so weeks! Of course, don’t forget to tag three other people as well.
Of course, because this is the blogosphere (Holy shit, it actually recognize that!) failure to participate in a meaningful way will result in the immediate disapproval of thousands of blogonauts. In other words, a fate worse than death.
Now, if only I could figure out how to teach this dictation thing codewords…
