memory

i realized something today: i can touch type rougly 65 wpm (it would be faster if i didn't get ahead of myself and leave out letters that i have to go back and fix) but i couldn't fill out a diagram of a keyboard if i had to. i can recite, chant, and sing the entire Lutheran liturgy (never mind that i've been in a Lutheran church once in the last, um, three years?) without a hymnal, but only if prompted. heh.

anyone have any other examples of odd ways that memory, especially ingrained memory, works?

    I did Not Prime Time this year, which made me actually write something for the first time since Yuletide. It was fun! It was also a lot more low key…
