THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

58 words

Typingtest

But I was typing with wet fingernails because my fingernail polish was chipped and I can't go to church with chipped fingernail polish so I am using that as an excuse for my poor performance. But I'm not as vain and my cute friend who goes to lengths to not speak to acquaintances in the morning when she's naked--as in naked face--but is Miss Charming in the afternoon when she's all put together. See here. It's so funny.


Sorry Shawn, but it is! And did you notice I gave your link a color that you wore on Friday--or as close as I could get? I knew it would be important to you, yes, we must coordinate everything and tweeze and spray and powder and gloss and lengthen and color and suck it all up--that's only me, the "sucking it all up part." And, if times get really bad, we must lipo and botox and go under the knife. Well, maybe not. But then again, maybe so.


Thank goodness we know this life isn't all there is and the next one we will be in our perfected state and I can tell you some of us--coughmecough--are counting on it. And hoping for faster type speeds, too.


PS I just retook this test with almost dry nails and got a score of 74. Better, but not good enough. I will be taking this again, I'm sure.

Ooh la la. I will look forward to having a totally luscious bod in the next life. Uh, Llama, how many words do you want to be able to type per minute? I only type 70, and I'm a stinking transcriptionist. Maybe that is true. Maybe I am a stinky transcriptionist... Your friend Shawn is very lovely. I want her haircut. I will have to ask Hillary if it would work for me. xoxoxo2u and thanks for commenting on my blog. It made me happy.

Oh, I love the typing test. I want to take the test--I REALLY REALLY want to--but I can't. My sister-in-law had this test on her blog last year and I became obsessed with beating my time--and everybody elses. LOL

p.s. Maybe I'll try it just once? . . .

what is up with you 70 words a minute people who are down on yourself?

44 words per minute and that is because I am sick...

My official for the job test last month was 47 and that is with dry fingernails and I don't know how it could go any faster.

There are 10 fingers to make sure that they don't get tangled and then there is the brain who has to tell all ten fingers something.

So all I have to say is rejoice! And rejoice at your keyboard!

Shawn said...

Heh, heh!!!! You are a typing guru!

I can't take the test on my laptop because my computer jumps around every once in a while and goes to different parts of what I am writing... Does that make sense?

By the by---thanks again for the shout out...I LOVED the color of the link----so sassy----like you, dahling!

That was some FUN times Sat. night---sooooo good to laugh with my new friend...

I thought 56 sounded pretty good. I was around 60 when I worked as a secretary, I think. With this new computer and keyboard though, I'm sure its slower, at least temporarily.

tearese said...

it says I got 52...sounds about right.

You have very pretty hands! I'll have to take that test when I have time. I think I used to be about 60, not that great.
