Today in numbers

  • Approximate number of words written today: about 3,000.
  • Number of words that had anything to do with my own writing: 0.
  • Number of words in letters of recommendations, etc.: about 3,000.
  • Number of words in emails: who counts?
  • Most frequent interjection: "Don't you dare quit on me, screen! Don't you dare go all white and fuzzy with a "Not responding" sign. Don't you know I'm 2 hours into this letter already? What's that? The little Vista spinning blue circle that means the system is going nowhere fast?"
  • Number of times I sat and watched the little circle spin: who counts?
