when i was a little girl i remember wishing for two things to be invented:
a device for recording one's thoughts and ideas, and teleportation.
of the two, only one is available today in the form of computers and blogs in particular fulfill this necessity for me, although through considerable work and frustration.
today i wrote a whole long post about our wedding anniversary that blogger deleted (possibly with my help).
it could have saved me a copy or something. very friendly.
then i googled teleportation and found this picture.
it more or less sums up what the 8-year-old me had in mind (except my kitty made it alive).
