Blogging while driving and Foamy the Squirrel

Foamy the Squirrel holding hammerI wish I could blog while I'm driving. That's when it seems so easy to compose entries in my head. But, then, there are the obvious safety issues...

And sometimes it's for the best, like those times when I get home, sit down and start to type, and then wonder, "Why did I think anyone would care about the slow leak in my right rear tire and why I'm sick of having to put air in it every week?" That's when I usually end up posting a photo. Or a link to a silly internet quiz.

Sometimes the entries aren't necessarily stupid, but I've already written them in my head a few times and I'm bored with them by the time I sit down at the computer. Like, I really think that somebody out there might want to know my take on the difference between the slang "noob" and the slang "nub" but, meh, I'm done with it already. I'm even more certain that somebody would be interested in my take on how a well-constructed pair of 4-inch high heels can be far more comfortable then your average pair of flats, but that's old news to me.

So, since I'm evidently going through a phase of ennui tonight, I'll content myself with leaving you this link to a funny Foamy the Squirrel episode I ran into on Beeker's Words today. If you've never heard a Foamy the Squirrel rant, then you're in for a treat. But be warned, it's not safe for work or young ears. Click here and press play.

And if you do come up with a way to blog while driving, don't tell me about it, because that would probably just earn me a hammer through my windshield (see Foamy above).

    One way only. It's called Dragon Naturally Speaking and I plan to try it soon while stuck in traffic.
    Just get your laptop with you, get your bluetooth mic and voila!

    Wish me luck! You may even hear about it... in the newspaper - car accidents page :)

  2. I wish you luck -- and hope never to read about the outcome in the newspaper. :)

    I've heard of Dragon Naturally Speaking, but never seen it in action. I'll have to remedy that.


Hi! Feel free to leave a comment. You do your part, and I'll try to keep the conversation going.
