Another Real Life TG Type Situation
This is a tiny caption I made for a Haven contest, where the entry had to be of a motivational poster style. I figured I would post it so that people would see something if they were viewing my link in another persons blog list. I think I might try to do that for every blog post I do, even if it doesn't relate to what I am talking about at the time.
Well, as some people know, I haven't had a voice for over a month now. Every year or two I get this issue. I think it is related to the massive amount of post-nasal drip I get. All the coughing and draining leads to strained vocal chords. It sucks, but hopefully I will be able to figure something out at some point in the near future.
Anyway, since I have a new "Smart Phone" with Android Marketplace, I decided to snap up a text-to-speech app, so that when I'm at a fast food place, or someplace I need to be heard ... I can at least communicate on some level. How does this relate to a TG situation? Well, the app is free, but I believe you have to pay for any voice that isn't the default. The default? Definitely a woman's voice, and the clearest way to hear the voice is to have it be a bit high-pitched like a teenage girl! Eesh!
The family finds it amusing. I think I'll be purchasing another voice for it very soon, hopefully one that makes me sound like Barry White. In the meantime, it is hard to resist typing in things like, "Omigod! Like totally those jeans are SOOOOO you!"
DISCUSSION QUESTION: Any ideas for other "apps" that would be fun to see in a caption? Of course, I am thinking more in a theoretical way, like the Spells R Us app, or something like that. Give it a whirl people, I am probably about 2 weeks away from 200k page views!
