chattering away

Contrary to popular opinion, I'm not typing. Oh, no. I am not typing, I am talking. I bought voice recognition software yesterday, and now I am using it. Unfortunately, it sometimes thinks that I'm saying very strange things. Just now, when I tried to say “I am using it,” the program thought I said “museum.” I don't know how this happens. So writing (er, saying) anything takes forever. On the other hand, my hands don't hurt, which is a lovely thing.

So when you see me in a café, talking into my headset like a mad woman, you know what's up. I am mad, obviously, but I'm also talking to my computer. And the computer is listening. Tell me that's not scary.
