Things I Like

I like the crazy Chicago weather. I know, it can be a pain in the ass some times, but really, overall it's funny. This morning, shielding myself from the slanting rain and wind as I walked over the Jackson St. bridge, I had to laugh. How crazy is it that it's April 12 and we're still bundled up as if it's January? That's what makes living here so much fun. You never know what you're going to get, as Mrs. Gump used to say. And isn't that one of the things that makes life fun, variety?

I like the Internet. No, I take that back, I LOVE the Internet. The Internet has changed the world and I think it's high time that we all gave it a little round of applause. Without the Internet I would not be sharing my innermost thoughts about nothing with all of you. Without the Internet, I wouldn't be able to accurately track my daily calorie intake and exercise levels (my-calorie-counter.com). Without the Internet, my husband would have to rely on a paper map for Christ's sake to figure out just how far he ran. Sure, there are some downsides to the Internet. There's a lot of crap out there (probably including this blog), but there's so much good, interesting stuff, it must outweigh the crap, right?

To round off my "Things I Like" blog, I'd just like to say, that I really like the feeling of typing. I like the sensation of words forming in my head and somehow translating themselves to my fingers. To these little symbols on this keyboard that to an alien would mean nothing, but to us, mean everything. I like how my fingernails hit the keys, and I like how my different fingers know what to do without me even telling them. I don't even know where the impulse comes from. Somewhere deep inside me that keeps the files the right index finger hits the j, m, n, u and z keys. And somehow my brain and fingers access this information while I'm thinking of what I should write say next. I like that. It's pretty amazing. Almost as amazing as the Internet. Thanks for reading my blog, and letting me do one of the things that I really like doing.
PS - Goodbye Kurt, thanks.
