Wednesday, February 23, 2005 A new TOY!

Yeah, yeah, it's not really a big deal or anything. It's not like it's one of those kind of toys... (sigh). I got a new keyboard. Not normally a big deal, but when one tends to find pounding out 70+thousand word stories a few times a year, a keyboard is an integral part of life.

So when DH took me to Office Max (A big enough thrill in itself. OMG is that like orgasm city there...) I was pretty stoked. (New word courtesy of Jeff Gordon, thank you)
But then I recalled that I said I needed ink. Okay, so someone has a better memory than I do.
(You had to know there was a reason I married him other than his devastating good looks)

So I get my ink, thrilled that I actually remembered to bring along my $10 off coupon. :)

Then he veers down an aisle.
"I tried to get Kyle to get you one through work," he says. (referring to the benefit of buying items through corporate account, thus at lower rate, and then having payment taken out of check...) "But," he continues, walking calmly down aisle with rows of mouses and keyboards. "He said they were discontinued."

Split keyboards were discontinued? What happened to ergonomics?
The plus? It's quiet. Not clickety clacking any more. Just thudding. It's kinda weird.

So... now I'm off to put this new piece of equipment to good use. :)
