Qwerty

Over the weekend, I actually had some TIME to not think! So what did I do? I thought. Dang it.

When I don’t have anything specific to thing about, I think about everything. On Saturday I started thinking about keyboards, wondering where the standard keyboard came from.

You should know that it just occurred to me a few weeks ago why they call it “qwerty.” Duh. Where the hell have I been to miss something so obvious.

So this evening, while waiting for my Bluefly live chat personal shopper to come up with something fabulous to wear to the rehearsal dinner, I looked up Qwerty on Wikipedia. Turns out a newspaper dude in Milwaukee created it over a 6-year period in the 1870s. Click HERE for the full story.

(So far the shopper isn’t producing much of anything good.)
