just blogging around...


Today I was just enjoying the world wide web and some blogs.

I clicked on my blog, then went to Flea's World and from there I went to A Musing Blog. She has a cute post on Texan humor and saying. (Thinking about Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee and her question about the difference between Northern and Southern humor.)

So, anyway, back to A Musing Blog, she had a typing test on there! I don't think I have taken a typing test since I was in high school.... and that was over 40 years ago since I graduated in 1967!!!!

Well, I have often wondered how fast these little fingers can go on this keyboard. I was not happy with my score, so I took it over and over and over! In defense, I am on the laptop and not the desktop keyboard... I know... sour grapes!

I had so much fun, I thought I'd post it here for your pleasure and enjoyment.

Have fun!

Thanks for the link love! Congrats on your score for the typing test! :) It IS much different typing on a laptop than a regular keyboard, so they should spot you an extra 10 wpm just for that. ;)

this is addicting! my best is 63 wpm so far....believe me, i'll probably keep trying.

don't forget to sit up straight and both feet on the floor and don't rest your wrists on the desk! he he he...i just remember Mrs. Belue and Mrs. Ragan preaching that at us :)

Ok, that wasn't fun!! Yet, I can't stop. Good thing I'm not a gambler. My best score was 60.

Thanks for linking me. :) My score was 35. :( I never did learn to type, so I go back and correct a lot.

I know if I go there supper will never get cooked -- that could be a blessing :-). Congratulations! My preference is my laptop though. PC's just can't go everywhere with me...

I just got 70wpm with 1 error! :D told you I'd beat my old score. Guess I better go do laundry like I said I was going to do!
