Carriage return


This is a coda to the typewriter story. I got lots of lovely comments on that story and I want to say thank you! I love getting your comments, and hearing how your lives intersect with mine! One thing about this typewriter – it doesn’t have an exclamation mark. Perhaps I should start writing exclusively on it because I am far too profligate with my exclamation mark use!!!!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering what the ‘Murder she wrote’ credits were, here they are. When I was looking through I realised there was a revised version, in which Angela Lansbury used a computer – it was not the same!

One thing I’ve always wanted to do is go along to the Alphabet City Letter Writing Club. It’s on tomorrow in Auckland. The thought of a bunch of people typing up a symphony of letters is very appealing. But I find it so difficult to extract myself from my family on a week night… maybe tomorrow…

    Typewriter Guilt – As children we spent hours trying to jam as many keys together as we could on my mother’s typewriter – an Olivetti. And I think we sent a beautiful old black Imperial to the dump – one that was so heavy the mafia could have used it to weigh down several dead bodies. Then my parents gave me a typewriter for my 21st, no idea where it is. And next I had an electronic typewriter that had so much twink on it that it looked like a guano mountain. Finally, I got my first laptop secondhand from Paul Shannon. When it started it up it sounded like a lawnmower! ha! happy memories – thanks DG

    Apostrophe + back space + period = exclamation point!
    Don’t they teach that in history class??
