Exposed: The Shocking Truth

The Blogger stats page that you get if you've got a blog is a fun thing to look at, as I've mentioned one or two times before. It tells you which old posts are attracting attention from readers, and apparently someone's been browsing the blog entries where I've talked about forgetting something in the course of my day-to-day life. I wonder if someone's compiling evidence for some sort of newspaper article or PhD thesis about the memory champion who can't even remember their own phone number or that they've ordered a book on the internet? I hope they are! I'd love that kind of publicity - it really gets tiresome having to explain to media people that I can't just remember anything they choose to show me, like massive great books and things, in a quick glance. If it became common knowledge that I've got a generally pretty hopeless memory except for things that I've made an effort to learn systems to be able to remember, things would be so much easier...
