There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

I heard this morning that Pat and Annette, my brother and sister-in-law, are expecting another baby, due in April. I have to wait until then to find out if I'm an uncle or an aunt.

NaNo is more like no-no. I spend so much of my time typing that I lose my train of thought. There's ViaVoice for Mac, but I have an awful record with speech recognition software and it just frustrates me more. Needless to say, I probably won't finish 50000 words by the end of the month. Oh well...

So sorry about Nano. It is hard to believe that the technology still doesn't exist to let us talk into out computers. Maybe, someday...

To be honest, I'm still thrilled that you are still around. So I'm pretty happy even if you can't finish Nano.

There are some people who swear by Naturally Speaking and ViaVoice, which allow you to speak into computers but require hours and hours of training. I have neither the time nor the patience to do so. In fact, I feel as though it's training me rather than the other way around.

Nevertheless, it's good to be alive. I can tolerate the infirmities, and not finishing NaNo is a minor disappointment. It could be a lot worse. If this has taught me one thing, it's not to let stubborn software (or anything else) drive me crazy.
