It's nice to have the netbook by the bed in case I wake up in the middle of the night and go "OH HAY THERES A THOUGHT" and instead of scribbling down something illegible on a piece of paper that invariably falls off the nightstand anyway, I just type it into a little text file and there you go.
However I still find ways to mess things up marvelously. A recent entry listed a joke setup line and then underneath I swear to god I wrote "...the response should be easy to determine."
So easy, in fact, that I didn't even need to write it down.
WHAT BRILLIANCE COURSES THROUGH THESE NEURONS IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT
