LiveJournal Messed Up?

So, last night around 1:00 a.m., LiveJournal was VERY messed up...

I kept trying (over and over again) to post a short entry -- but it wasn't happening. Then finally I was getting the image of Frank and the message he'd been 'chewing on the wires' -- hahahahaha. I guess so!

Anyway, I went to bed and just forgot about the entry, but did end up posting it just before this one. I knew the time, because I'd emailed the content to myself, so i could do it (yeah, I'm sure you guessed it) from my iPad. And that's what I did! This entry is being typed from my iPad...

The main thing is getting to a decent speed typing with one finger...

NO, I can't type with it using both thumbs, as many people do. It just doesn't work for me. Nor can I use the keyboard normally -- I guess my hands are just too big. But as I frequently see others doing the one-finger thing, I guess it's fairly normal for most...

And though I've never tried timing myself with this method, I have been getting faster and more accurate all the time, which is a good thing!

It's a bit odd for someone used to touch typing for most of my life, but oh well...

Again, I can't get over how convenient the iPad is! It's not like I'm going to drag my laptop to bed with me all the time! But my iPad? Sure! No big deal...

I just got up to do my blood (check the count) and take my meds. DONE. Marilyn's and my goal is to SLEEP IN today, so now I'm happily back in bed.

I'm feeling better today -- which is WHY I need to go to bed with vertigo, like I did yesterday. It's really the only 'treatment' that works for me...

The furnace is grinding away (!!!) as we left it on all night, it's so cold right now.

For those keeping track, there's no sign of snow, yet. Of course, it's not expected locally until tonight, anyway, so... But they rarely get it right here in Portland when predicting snow, so we're all used to it. (grin)

You know, I never would have guessed how much I'd end up liking my iPad. In spite of the drawbacks -- of which there are many -- it's an amazing thing. I really couldn't live without it, now.

I'm currently reading the book "Through A Dark Mist" (by Marsha Canham). It's part of her 'Robin Hood' trilogy. It has some shockingly erotic parts (!!!), but the writing is good and she's done her historical research -- so I'm enjoying it. Anyway, I'm now off to read more...
