An animated response to all the invective-filled, garment-rending articles about lawsuits against businesses that violate the ADA. As with my earlier attempt, I think I succeeded only in cracking myself up. Call it Animation Therapy. Try it: http://www.xtranormal.com
Couple of notes. I love how the animated gestures are almost as awkward as the gestures I generate naturally. On the other hand, I’m very disappointed that I could not make the automated voice render the word “law-nerd.” This is a significant gap in the Xtranormal program. And because I can overthink anything, I feel a tiny bit odd that my alter ego is African-American. (Of COURSE she’s my alter-ego. What did you think?) Felt odd as in “in a post about civil rights what right do I have to speak from an African-American perspective?” Truth is, of the characters available from Xtranormal in this set, I identified strongly with the obviously coffee-related superpower and did not think a minor difference in skin color should stop me. In addition, my Caucasian choices were rather limited. This one was not alter enough of an alter-ego:
This one perhaps TOO alter:
We’ve previously established that I’m no superhero in the kitchen.
And I basically didn’t know wtf this was:
So Super Coffee Woman it is! Superpowers include: high caffeine tolerance; overthinking; snark; wasting time she should be working playing with online animation programs.
