Donna Crawford
Redondo Beach, California


I was born in North Carolina and lived there until I was about 2 or so.  My father was in the military, so we moved every year or two.  We lived up and down the east coast, in Arkansas, Germany and Kansas, before he retired in 1980.  I attended Manhattan High School (in Kansas) and college and law school at the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks!!).

I've lived in Alabama, Georgia, Texas and California since leaving my parents' home.  I currently live in California with my husband Kirk (even while we were on our RTW, we considered California as home). My family and friends are scattered all over the place, as you can imagine.

My husband and I are highly involved with our church, locally. I have lots of hobbies, including cooking, HAM radio, reading, travelling, bzflag, and sports/outdoor activities. Although I love to watch Jayhawk Basketball, I generally prefer to participate. Some of my favorites are beach volleyball, scuba diving, cycling, rowing, swimming, snow skiing, tramping, surfing, off-roading, etc.

My travels over the last few years have taken me to Costa Rica, Hawaii, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and most recently, on a 15-country, 1-year round-the-world trip.

Three Blonde Mice (Feet)

Ok, today, a guy on irc was talking about the feet on his mouse. Now, of COURSE mice have feet - regardless of whether they are white mice, brown mice, multicoloured mice, or whatever. But I soon came to discover he was talking about his COMPUTER mouse. Feet? Did he REALLY say his mouse had FEET? I couldn't resist and I questioned him about it.

Here's what transpired:

mouseman: hmm, i like this mouse
mouseman: some kind, same model, but it's feet seem better
Me: your mice have feet?!
mouseman: SC: most, if not all, mice have feet
mouseman: doess't yours ?
Me: nope
Me: mine glides, mouseman
mouseman: what part of the mouse touches the mousepad ?
Me: the whole bottom
mouseman: so, the feet wore off ?
mouseman: i thought my mouse had it bad, with no shoes, till I met SC who's mouse had no feet
Me: hehe
* SC has never SEEN a mouse with feet - unless it has fur too
mouseman: THe bottom of my mouse +==>
mouseman: although the orignal feet wore off, i have replaced them with bigger ones
Me: weird
Me: mine HAS no feet
Me: should it?!
mouseman: no, weird is a mouse with no feet :)
mouseman: yes
Me: hrmph
mouseman: what kind of mouse ?
Me: hrm
Me: apparently mine has invisible feet
mouseman: laser mouse !?
mouseman: puh
mouseman: uh huh, and at the bottom of the page
mouseman: do you see the section entitled "Polytetrafluoroethylene gaming feet" ?
mouseman: those are some big feet :)
mouseman: sry, middle of page
mouseman: i think we lost the blond one :)

Labels: ,

for the record, my mouse only has THREE feet - perhaps it qualifies as "disabled". :)
