Hey! You've been commented on by a bot! And it finds your post likeable!

In other news ... yesterday I did a career fair and was talking to aspiring writers about fiction writing courses in which the instructor would hand out mimeographed copies of our stories for the other students to critique ... and somehow the conversation became one of explaining things like "mimeograph" and "carbon paper" to 16-year-olds ... I will wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled ...

Please don't stand on your head!

The bot likes me! It really likes me!

When each niece and nephew was born, i gave her/him a stack of the day's newspaper, magazines and catalogs as a time capsule. In a few years, let them laugh at the technology that was around when they were born. Already our kids are amazed by the "ancient" stuff in mid-1980's Sears catalogs.

Meanwhile, i think everyone who has earned a degree with the benefits of word processing and sticky notes (instead of torn paper bookmarks that fall out), should have an asterisk next to it. They don't know what we went through. 8~)

Oh and welcome, ronnie - i think this is your first appearance here. If Mike does headstands in schools on career day, i bet he's a big hit!

Ronnie said...

Thanks, Ruth. I love your blog. It is indeed very likeable and interesting. I won't be commenting often but I am always reading.

One more thing: as for standing on his head, at his age, I don't think it is wise.

It would be wiser than having other people stand on his head.

In any case, the kids are much more impressed when I balance an eel on my nose.

At least the bot didn't say "you're likeable enough"...!
