I decided when I woke up this morning that it's Left Hand Day: as far as possible, everything I normally do with my right hand is going to be assigned to my left and vice versa for the next 24 hours. Time to give the old right-brain a workout.
I just did a quick look up of Lateralization of brain function:
Spoiler:
Quote:
Brain function lateralization is evident in the phenomena of right- or left-handedness and of right or left ear preference[citation needed], but a person's preferred hand is not a clear indication of the location of brain function. Although 95% of right-handed people have left-hemisphere dominance for language, 18.8% of left-handed people have right-hemisphere dominance for language function. Additionally, 19.8% of the left-handed have bilateral language functions.[5] Even within various language functions (e.g., semantics, syntax, prosody), degree (and even hemisphere) of dominance may differ.[6] As well, through the experimental results from the effects of handedness and correlations between lateral differences and pathological data, it has been accepted that visual field effects could also be related to hemispheric specialization. [7]

Interesting and would be something to explore further.

Right now, I am starting my list of what needs to be done during our week off from work (no vacation pay) and I am finding out that there is not enough time to get it all done. So, normal life.

I found out that Amazon order packers have a sense of humor. I ordered a micro SDHC card - which arrived in a 8 x 10 envelope (which weighed more than the card) with a 2" x 3" packing slip.

Starting a load of laundry full of the clothes I was just wearing and towels. I can't believe I just spilled my first cup of coffee ever. Not only that, but I had to spill it while I was sitting in my favorite cushion reading chair and I am hoping that the cushion will dry out after I soaked up as much of the coffee as I could. Oh yeah, the chair is beige and the coffee was HOT! Ouch!

Nasty. But better than spilling it all into your laptop keyboard, I suppose (which I did a while ago - totalled the laptop).

See? We've been telling you to drink tea for how long now? Do you think it was purely to support the tea companies? Noooooo. It was to protect you and your laptop. But did you listen? Nooooooo. You kept drinking that dangerous stuff and look what happened.... I knew it... I knew it... They just never listen until it's too late. I tried. GOD KNOWS I TRIED.
Excuse me. I think that I need to go outside and scream.

I always worry about that, so my laptop is on a small chair-height table next to my chair; I have to turn to reach and type on it. That was safe, but apparently using my chair arm as a resting place for my coffee cup is not a good idea.

This is one of the problems with progress...
Tower computers come equipped with beverage holders that slid in an out at the push of a button. Even with a cup or can they don't tip over, and are always right at hand. Eventually, however, they do wear out and need to be replaced.

And to think I though those little slide out things were to put my snack plates on.

Speaking of snacks, it's time to go find something to snack on.

I seem to have a knack for killing threads.

Anyway, now I'm installing insulation film on my windows. So hopefully the electricity bill won't be as crazy this summer.
