So after writing about my trials and tribulations on not having enough brain cells to remember something I thought about 10 minutes previous, I took your suggestions to heart and purchased a digital voice recorder.
No, not the one that comes FREE! with this bag (although it waaaaas tempting; that Buxton Organizer looks amazing! I've always said a purse isn't a purse unless it can hold two water bottles, an umbrella, wallet, phone, makeup, glasses, notebook, calculator and another 50 kilos of miscellaneous crap you never even thought you owned). But I digress, I was looking for a voice recorder, not a
Instead I bought an RCA model that records for 18 hours… and with my verbal diarrhea, that should be just enough.
But then I asked Myself:
Myself, why the heck am I recording, then TYPING out my posts? Wouldn’t it be easier, faster AND more entertaining to just post my random/weird/trivial thoughts as a podcast?

1) Easier? Ha! I still haven’t figured out how to do anything but turn the damn thing on, record individual clips and listen. All the other bells and whistles are explained in this Easy To Follow User ... um ... "pamphlet". Unfortunately it didn't come packaged with the magnifying glass required to decipher the .0001 point typeface, so I still have to figure out tricks like how to insert, bookmark, delete, lock and download the files to my laptop.
2) Faster? I think not. Until I master the fine art of editing audio files 12,000 times before I hit the "Publish" button like I inevitably do with written stories, it will take me forever to splice something even remotely intelligent together.
and lastly, but most importantly,
3) More entertaining? Nooooooooo. Nonononono. *I* can’t stand the sound of my voice, so I wouldn’t dare subject friends (and/or strangers for that matter) to such excruciating torture either.
So I guess I'll stick to traditional written blogging.
But at least now with my brand spankin' new RCA 64M, I'll never forget a post idea again.
If I remember to bring the recorder with me, that is.
And batteries. I can't forget the batteries...
