Strictly speaking, he actually types.

Happy Happy Joy Joy! Bruce is finally in the blog-o-sphere and I just know he will always be kind in his comments toward me and other limping mallards.

Yes I know the title says the Saipan Saipanuvian Speaks, but what the hell, a little poetic license is allowed when one is a publishing mogul artfully articulating what his readership breathlessly awaits...both of them.

Since I know that most of you, cant hold your breath for very long, I will make this first test post short and sweet. The short part is that we're close to it's conclusion even now. The sweet part is I have been very polite and not the least bit negatory or nasty or even a tiny bit foul tempered toward anyone.

Sweetness and light. Sweetness and light.
How long will it last?

Yes indeed, be nice to Bruce and mallards! If you need help adding to your blog roll, go to customize, choose an element, add a link list, copy the url and give it a name. Don't forget to add the name and save it. I've already added you even though you did choose a picture of W for your first post. Not the most popular guy in the education field right now.

Well I type. Fairly quickly too. Mostly because the typing instructer at my high school was a fairly attractive type and I needed to fill an elective, along with my classmates were all women. A lesson to all high school students. You may actually learn something useful, even if you don't realize it at the time. The other useful skill I learned was how to read a newpaper on the subway efficiently and without elbowing your neighbor. That one isn't too handy these days (newspaper with three columns and seperate section UH UH, subway, not the ride, and what neighbors) I did learn how to read, before typing, but what is w's excuse?

Bruce you need to get a real job!

Oh, and I'll add you to my roll of shame on my site.

Ok Bruce, I've got you added, and it works even. By the way, with or without the big tank, I can still make my air last longer than most mere mortals. I'm ready to go back down whenever you are, just say the word!

zzsimonb said...

It is in the 'blogs worth reading' section.

Thanks Borego and Mark and Harry and even you Simon, for posting links to this site. I'll reciprocate soonest.

Harry, I'll give you a call for a dive trip as soon as the ribs heal enough for compression.

I use the Bruce Bateman touch system of typing....the finger closest to the key gets to tap. I learned to type by receiving morse code so I never had to look at the copy, only the words as I typed them.

A real job? Yikes, Zelda, as Dobie used to say.

You should run for office.

Bruce and I should run together on the Sunburn Party line. We'll just confuse everyone by saying the opposite thing on everything, not that saying things matters here.

I think you may be right, Angelo. I can see the big billboard signs now:

Bruce A. B&B. C. DLG. F. G. I. K. L. M.P. Q. R. S. SN, T. V. Bateman for Congressional Tsar. Why? because he tastes good!

I like the Sunburn Party idea, Jeff, or is there room over with the Jedi? Note to self...must polish up light saber.
