Typing in the dark ~ an acquired skill

Real Estate Agent

I am certain that I am not the only one with this problem:  I've worked a full day but although I am exhausted I couldn't beat my brain to death with a big stick, if I tried! After tossing and turning for almost two hours, I finally gave up and at 12.30am,  I find myself BACK at my computer, but because I don't want to wake the whole family, the only light is that coming from the computer screen!

True,  I could sit here playing Solitaire or similar, but those articles, blogs and e-mails do so nag at me because they MUST get done! Make no mistake, I am no touch typist and sometimes I chuckle at what appears on the screen when I hit a string of incorrect keys but even a blog typed slowly and at times in reverse, is better than no blog at all!

Anyone else out there a 'dark keystroker'?

I am, but I don't go to bed until 2 am anyway, so it's no big deal for me!

Althea, cool name! Luckily our computer room is in the basement and I can turn the light on without disturbing my husband, like he'd wake up anyway... I totally watch the keyboard when I'm typing, but I'm getting good enough that I can type pretty quick anyway! Then I only have to proof read it...

You guys crack me up!

Our house is very open plan with TONS of floor to ceiling/wall to wall glass.  Consequently, any light on in the night, tends to filter through to the bedroom areas - I am serious.....  even the dogs give me dirty looks!
