It's intriguing to read about the process of switching over from using your right to your left hand. That's exactly how I'd imagine it would go. I wonder if the change in mouse-hand affects your alertness because you've gone from left-brained to right-brained control of the mouse. Or if it's just from doing something differently, in which case I'd expect the effect to fade over time. Anyway, I hope your right side gets better soon!!

I hear you. On the one hand, I figure that "too busy" is more of a state of mind than an immutable inability to do something if a person really wants to. Isn't there always a TV program that can be cut, or something that will free up enough time? But on the other hand, since my third kid came along I really usually do feel crazy-busy, and the idea of adding one more thing is just daunting. Even if something comes along that I want to do, for my own sanity it's better if I don't try to squeeze it in. There's a lot to be said for time to sit still and unwind, and snuggle with a kid or two. I think that's the time that would be lost if I filled up my schedule even more -- and it would be sad to lose that. (Which in other words means that I agree with you.)

Oh wow! Jodie Foster has long been at the top of my list of intelligent and interesting famous people. I had no idea that she had a female partner. Or any partner, for that matter. I'd been worrying that she was probably lonely. I am glad to find out that maybe she's not. Neat!
