See what happens when you drink and type?

I saw this on my blog buddy C's post, and couldn't resist trying it out. After all (smoothing my lapels with my finger tips proudly), I did represent my highschool in the regional typing test in Grade nine. And my son aspires to be the fastest typist in the world (guffaw!), like his mother (that's what he wrote last year when asked his life ambition). But this?:

93 words

Touch Typing



How did I do that? I thought I'd be 70 words, tops, given my advanced age.

Just another of life's great mysteries.

I'm impressed. I just got 67 wpm, which is about what I did back in high school, if I remember right.

Fun!

I am so afraid to take that test! I've always looked at my fingers somewhat and I've had so many jobs where typing speed was crucial - I just did it fast...looking!

you totally kicked my butt. I got 86 and that was trying to COMPLETE! I didn't realize we could use backspace til halfway through!

Ginaagain said...

93! That's fantastic. I got 53.. if I remember correctly 60wpm was required to pass typing.

Ginaagain said...

Help me... I can't stop taking the test and I'm not getting any better!

Hmm....I got 56....I'm going to have to go back there and practise. But since when is 'Indian' one of the most used words in the English language? I don't think I've ever used that word in MY blog, and that must be the standard they should look at...lol! Go you!

Jesus H Tap Dancing Christ! Is that even possible???

I got 62 wpm. I need to practice!

Rachel said...

I wish I were a fast typer. I am not slow but I do it the old way-one at a time-so I guess I am fast considering. LOL

Kami said...

I only got 57! Usually I am pretty fast but I got nervous! Oh the pressure :-)

Fun! and I totally need a drink, then I'd be way better ;-)

Beck said...

67, which is slower than I normally type, I think.
But not as fast as you, Ms. Fingers Of Fire.

Curiosity Killer said...

WHAT??? YOU BEAT ME???

I want a recount. LOL

C said...

OMG!!!! I can see those fingers just a flyin' across the keyboard! (says C, as she bows her head in disdain). I was all giddy after my 66 wpm! LOL!

Perhaps I need to have a few Pomtinis and then take the test again! Any excuse for a Pomtini! LOL! I'm going to have to buy the stuff by the CRATE! They're sooooooo good!!!

TTYS! (I'll probably be in TO mid-March. Hubby and I are trying to go to Cuba, Mexico or the DR in the beginning of March).

WHOA!!!! K, I'm too ashamed to post what my results were....let's just say it was nearly half of yours :(

another good thing said...

I totally suck at typing- and I've written 3 novels. I like to look at the keyboard not at the monitor because it stops the train of thought if you see the words in print-- it seems so much more final that way. I like fast typists though- admirable, really.

Wow - that's impressive. I'm pretty sure I'd top out at about 9.3 words a minute.
