No one will care about this but me, but I'm going to make note of it anyway. (It also serves well to illustrate the effects of ADD meds on sleep-deprived brains.)

This morning I learned to roll my r's the right way. I've been able to roll them far back in the my throat since I was a kid, and once I figured out the trick to bringing them forward in my mouth, but until today that secret was lost. I was playing around with the lyrics to one of Sunday's choir songs and suddenly got it. I hope I can remember the trick now.

Too bad I'm no longer using my Spanish much, with the exception of occasional choir pieces. Better late than never, I suppose. (And it's very personally satisfying to have figured this out anyway.)

The old way of rolling my r's is the same technique I use to purr. I can purr on the inhale and the exhale, which, according to my cat mailing list, is uncommon. Of course I still run out of air quickly, not being a real cat, and we don't really know how they purr anyway. Still, it's a fun thing to be able to do with cats, and it seems to be good enough for them.

House of the Dead, and I'm afraid that's it.

I realize now I'll have to turn in my geek card, but that's okay--it was only provisional anyway. :-P
