Maybe she had my job and there was really nothing better to do?
Now the important question is, did she double space?
Only one way to find out. ;) Why don't you get started, and let us know? hehe
What would be the point of that? Maybe to get people 33 years later to be talking about her still. :D As I recall, she's also in the Guinness Book.
When I was little, my uncle said he'd pay me $100 if I ever finished writing out all those numbers—which I never did.
Ms. Drew, by the way, spelled them out (e.g., 'one' instead of '1').
OOH! That's really interesting. That tidbit wasn't included on the fact thing I got it from.
There wasn't really a lot to do in 1974.
i was going to say, i don't think it would take half that time, but if she -spelled- them, yeah, okay... i can see it, i guess?
I wonder what her husband thought?
LOL. Better question.. do you think she's still alive or do you think he got rid of her? haha. I've heard lesser motives for people to kill thier spouses and bury them in the garden then incessant typing.
Why may I ask would some one would want to count from 1 to one million?
My name is not Marva Drew, so I do not have an answer to that question. ;)
I'm always lonely.....
She actually typed a million numbers??
Why yes, yes she did. That's what the fact says. :)
Iowa man, what ELSE are you going to do? Tip cows?

All day long listening to her clack away at that typewriter
We were all really proud of Mom when she finished, but she was never the same after that. Its like when she finally typed "1,000,000" the purpose just went out of her. She started obsessing about anything with a million in it, blew all her money on lottery tickets and was tragically trampled to death during the Million Man March in Washington, D.C.

Re: All day long listening to her clack away at that typewriter
lol, nice. ;)
I've been wondering if her husband killed her for all that click-clacking.
Some one asked her why she did it and she said "it's just one thing I've always wanted to do."
Found that while looking to see if she was a performance artist. Its the right time period for that. But apparently not.
Interesting! I hadn't even considered her being a performance artist. That would be awesome.
I would think that would inspire violence in ones spouse..
Glory. You do it for the glory.
she was the desperate housewife before there were desperate housewives... i really just think she was lonely...
