Thanksgiving Calendar 2012Remember when some of us (me) used to laugh at the old folk losing their memories?

As we knew then, as does every teenager know now, its a matter of willpower and desire to remember things. You don’t just lose your ability to recall stuff.

You just don’t.

Do you?

Do I what?

Let me go back to the beginning of this post to see if I can recall what I’m supposed to be writing about.

Okay, I’m back.

But if we are careless enough to let memory loss happen to us, there are numerous tools and websites geared to the aide memoire. Take the site ‘Luminosity’ for instance (no, this is not a sponsored post), which has all sorts of brain and memory training games and techniques purported to help. All very useful. Well, except for the bit where they try to capture my details before letting me at the good stuff. You know, date of birth, email address…name – some of which I can’t remember mainly because I need memory training! I did send an email to the makers of the website explaining this flaw in their cunning system, but I have yet to receive a response. Unless of course I have received a response and can’t remember doing so.

And, yes, I am certain I did send them an email. Thank you.

At the very least, I think I’m certain I sent them an email.

I definitely know for sure I wanted to remember to be certain of not forgetting to send them an email.

Moving on.
