Wow that was a nightmare trying to take a picture of the writing and getting the contrast all correct and such. I think I may also have determined the right side of my camera lense is inherently blurry. I couldn't get the first paragraph all in focus until I took a picture of it holding the camera upside down and stitched the two right sides of the image together. Anyway I've wanted to do a handwritten entry for awhile... and I don't tihnk I'm going to do it again for awhile ... unless I gain access to this thing called a "scanner."
(and yes that begins "dear commentariat")
