Passing the Time
One of my many idiosyncrasies is that I rarely mind things that drive some people crazy. I like waiting in traffic because I almost always have an audio book or music I love in the car's cd player. I also don't mind standing in supermarket lines. This is my chance to read the latest gossip magazines on the rack. Closer to home (in the computer/blogging sense), I truly don't mind the word verification item that comes up when I leave a comment on several blogs. Because I read everything from signs to cereal boxes, these letters offer just another sort of reading. The ones on Typepad are the more pedestrian; 'just the facts' - though 63z7g9 looks a little like a British or Canadian postal code which makes me smile. But Blogger, oh, those cute little words are so artsy and fun. kitio - like the 1950s 'daddy-o.' clechem reminds me of pacem (peace) or a country somewhere. fereprec sounds like a cleanser for false teeth. excicell might be a new cell phone company. tornian could be a character out of Tolkien or Rowling. And damoll- well that's a hoodlum's woman, right?!
