How's Your Reaction time?

I'm flying out this morning to Longview, Texas because I'll be speaking at LaTourneau University on Friday. Looking forward to it.  :-)  I've had a couple of months off, but the travel schedule is picking up again. 

BTW, don't forget that "The Note" and "The Note 2: Taking a Chance on Love" will air on the Hallmark Channel this coming Saturday night.  Check your local station for times. 

And yes, I took the screenplay for the second movie and wrote it up into a novel.  That's supposed to be released in May, along with the DVD.  


This looks like a game, but it's really not--it's a fun way to see how fast your brain and muscles react to visual stimuli.  Click on the little baseball, and then when you see the words "swing batter," click anywhere on the ball field.  The screen will then tell you if you were fast enough to hit the ball.  Interesting, when you think it could also reveal whether you're fast enough to brake to avoid a child, a suddenly-braking driver, etc.  

I started out slow and then got faster . . . . because I knew what to expect.  But in real life, we never expect the unexpected, do we?  :-0 

So . . . how'd you do?

So cool. What's weird is my reaction time for .2 seconds felt the same as .19. I couldn't feel the difference enough to replicate my response.

He called me Sparky a few too many times. :o)

God-speed on your journey. Take good care of yourself, Angie. May we all remind you that you just got out of the hospital?

Woohoo! I hit a home run at .11 secs! And I jumped the gun a couple of times.

Wow, you'll be in Longview?!?!?! Wish this state wasn't so big. Are you SURE you don't want to make a detour through Austin?! Have a great trip!

I did pretty good.

I ALWAYS expect the unexpected. It's my motto. My code. no, wait... I don't have a motto.

I guess that's why I unexpectedly hit an unexpected car earlier this week.

after hitting a bunch of .22 base hits, somehow i got incredibly lucky with a .04 home run! unfortunately i can't seem to duplicate it.

Angela said...

Awesome! I go to LeTourneau and we're so excited to have you! See you tomorrow!

Linda G said...

I keep getting base hits. Maybe I should put on my glasses or put in my contacts.

Just a reminder to those of you thinking of going on the cruise with Angie next January, half of the cabins are spoken for. If we fill up I can add more cabins, but right now all we have available are Balconies and Ocean View cabins.

Awesome about LU! I'll have to check out if you are doing a night chapel too (cause guess where I live and used to go to school). Ok, so if anyone doesn't get that on the first guess then, well... anyway...

Kay - you crack me up! (I know it's a bad pun, but ... oh well!) So, I got as many "Sparkys" as "Home Runs", which shows I have no idea what I was doing. I had fun anyway, and look at all the exercise I got running around the bases! =) Safe trip, Angie! Clyde
