Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

life modified @ 12:03 am

Today has been somewhat boring but when you're here with Fiona who enjoys sleeping all the time, and a very vocal kitty, Gabby, there's not much else but class to do, unless I want to talk to the cat or something. Class went off with only a small hitch, mainly, the fact that they couldn't find the speakerphone before class. Since a speaker phone is essential to my going to class, I had to find the technician Harold, who had to find the phone, which got put n class, only ten minutes late. Class was boring as usual, but if I didn't have the phone I'd have nothing to do at home and also get totally behind. At least I can be involved in class, and feel like I'm accomplishing something.

Tonight, we hooked a backpack type thing to my walker so now I can easily carry my laptop and anything else (headphones, phone, food, etc) without having to strain myself too much. It just helpse me feel a lot more independent. I can do most things now; walk around, make lunch, go to class. The only thing I'm missing is social activities and friends that I can ahng out with. THank goodness for messengers, good books, and live journal. With that, and the fact that the coffee I had has flushed out of my system, and I'm really tired. More tomorrow, at next coffee time.

I just wanted to say that I've been reading what you have been going through and that you are a trouper! You haven't let much get you down and that's an inspiration for people like me, who get bogged down with the drudgery of daily life...good for you.

Give Fiona a pet for me.

How'd you get it to do that!

You have managed to get the comment link to say muse randomly on this entry and I am curious how you managed it? Different note I am glad to hear you are better able to get about I could have also been restricted to a walker or wheelchair so I know where you're coming from there. In reference to your comments the seeming explosion in use of live journal by the blind has given me an idea for an entry if I can just pull it together. DJNER Trend setter?

PS I got the Log Journal client sorted but the friends menu requires quite extensive use of cursor keys.

I use a different kind of style, an s2 style. Perhaps sometime I coul talk to you about it on entrilo ro something like echolink if you use it, it would make explaining it much easier. It can be a bit of a bitch. If you switch to a s2 style though, basically you fill in a form on a web page, and that's about it. Have a look at
http://www.livejournal.com/customize
and see what you can see there. there are documents there, but don't make too many drastic changes there unless you read a bit and explore. You can easily switch between s1 and s2 systems (s2 being easier to set up) but they're still in the process of developing s2, so just play around with it and see what you see. THe thing you'll want to change is comment text. You can also change it in s1 but its a bit more involved. Confusing? I know, it takes a while to figure all this crap out.

Glad you're figuring out the clients and lj. Its a good support network. I don't know about trend setting, but they say that everything happens fr a reason, maybe I broke my leg for one of these reasons. Who knows. Come up with that entry and we'll see :). Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Hey dude!
Glad you got a backback thingy hooked up so you can tote your junk around the house. I know it sucks not being with your friends. It is soo good you can still do your classes this time though. Anyway, just wanted to say Hello! Pat Fiona and Gabby for me.
