    i just like the way text looks without caps.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

        any day of the week!

        btw, i am now typing with my "new" fingers - have enough bend that i can use both hands again.  

        i just realized why i stopped caps (besided loving archy and mehitabel).  the last joint on my little finger of the right hand fused years ago - i didn't know that it was solid bone from middle knuckle down - so i can't bend it.  to use the shift key on the right hand, i have to twist my entire wrist - think "pain".

        so, i don't use caps.  i'd trade caps for fingers any day of the week!


        got a bad initial hand therapist after the surgery - she didn't even schedule the first therapy appt until after a month beyond the surgery - and the day we took off the splint was 10 days out, not 7 as recommended by the surgeon.  that same day an exhuberant young nurse bounded around the corner and smashed into my new fingers - didn't hurt the replaced joint but jammed the first joint of first finger and i couldn't bend the damned thing for two more weeks.


        i'm a full month behind in regaining full use of my fingers... so i get a wee tad miffed when someone starts kvetching because i don't use caps (not you).  what a petty thing to b*tch about!  especially when one doesn't know the reason.

        i've had lots of people ask me why - never had a problem explaining - but the snide comments above make me want to hurry my "bending" of those knuckles a la ali.....

        rarely does anything bring out that response in me... i think it is frustration at how long it's taking to get my hand back so i can ride again.   grrrrrrrrrrr

        EdriesShop Is it kind? is it true? is it necessary?
