I have a health condition that may end my life prematurely. I am an "older" parent of an only child who is currently 8 years old. It's important to me that I leave a record of who I was. Can you help me with strategies to help me "index and annotate" myself for her, so that when she is older she could have an idea of her father as an adult beyond just the Daddy that I am to her now?

I'd like to experiment with microblogging as a way of keeping a private diary/journal (stored on my HD, not a server). Does anyone know of any (Windows) software for this purpose, please? I am thinking of a little app like the Digsby Twitter interface that lies in my system tray and allows me to type short posts which it then automatically times and dates and appends to a text file or Word doc on my HD. I know I could do this manually with a text editor or word processor, but I think the microblogging format would provide more of a stimulus.

I've seen a couple people recently with very nice fairly stiff leather journal covers, maybe a little smaller than 8 1/2 by 11, that hold a smaller replaceable floppy journal inside. I want one. I've looked around some, but all I can find are the cheap mass-produced ones. Does the hive mind have a lead on where to get a good-quality leather cover online or in the SF bay area?
