Lisa and Sarah and Geri tagged me for a meme that is making it's way around blogville. So, I guess I must oblige. I mean, getting triple tagged and all. So: Seven random things about me.
  1. I've got a pinch in my wrist/arm/shoulder/neck. It's is annoyed by the position of my wrist on my mouse pad. Clearly I need to reevaluate the ergonomics of the desk set up.
  2. I like to eat chili with peanut butter. I spread some peanut butter on a cracker and then dip the whole thing in chili. Yum.
  3. I only eat chili in the fall and winter -- which is short lived in Texas.
  4. I've lived in Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Florida, Mississippi, California, Texas and Maine.
  5. I was editor of my high school newspaper. That was when "cut and paste" literally meant cut and paste.
  6. I'm a Tridelta.
  7. My favorite dessert is the Chocolate Dream from Carrabbas. (The Molten Lava Cake at Chili's is quite marvelous also. But I only get a couple of bites with four spoons flying!)

And seven others from whom I'd like to read random facts:

  1. Joanne
  2. Robin
  3. Judy
  4. Dee
  5. Pam
  6. DJ
  7. and You!

OK...I'll leave you th peanut butter and Chili! And send white light for the pinch (I need to do the same thing about my lower back and how I sit on the sofa at night).....

What / where is Carrabbas, and do I need to come to Texas to eat a Chocolate Dream?

People don't know what they're missing with the Chili and peanut butter combo!

Thanks Mom!

Deb, I don't think you were trolling for unsolicited advice, but try using your mouse with your left hand. This doesn't really apply with laptops, but at a desktop your left hand is in a more neutral position than your right when you are centered in front of your keyboard. This is because of the number pad at the right of the keyboard, which causes you to reach out and around.

It feels awkward at first, but only takes about a week to get used to it. Try it! It's a good exercise for your brain as well. PS, be sure to switch the right and left-click mouse buttons so your index finger is the left click.

I tried this and it made a HUGE difference for me. I'm a confirmed lefty now when it comes to my mouse!

the peanut butter and chili sounds oddly appealing...hmmm. I posted my stuff and I think I'll try the left handed mouse thing(thanks Diana)-my right hand is getting a bit painful lately. It'll be interesting to see what the eye-hand co-ordination factor is as I am known for my amazing grace...bwahhhh
