Irate, Irritable and Uptight all have a "t."


Blogging has come to a screeching halt. The "T" on my keyboard is sticking. Every time I go to strike it, I have to hit it at least twice and occasionally have to jab at it. Attempts to remedy the problem have failed miserably.

As I have been going through the excruciatingly painful process of typing this, another key has completely fallen off. It's the one that perches directly under the period key. So not only can I not type a "t" when I want, but every time I go to add a period, the wobbly key underneath lodges itself under the period thereby preventing me from ending a sentence.

I may have a heart attack.

There is another laptop I can use, but it's older, more cumbersome and doesn't have all of my files loaded on it. Apparently, I'm going to be forced back into the Dark Ages and use that four year old dinosaur. (That's kind of sad isn't it? Four years old and you're already thought of as having aged out of the game. Poor Computersaurus.)

Let me get this figured out. It will require a bit of foot stomping, a lot of whining, more than likely some cash and a whole bucket load of whimpering.

But, as always, I will overcome. Maybe. *sniffle*

There are many reasons why I adore Mr. Right. One of which is the fact that he's a technical genius. After just a tiny bit of blubbering at him, he hunted down my tweezers and set out to repair my "t." (No, that's not a euphemism. Get your minds out of the gutter.)

After five minutes with Mr. Right, my laptop now behaves perfectly! Blog Land...here I come!

I'm glad the problem has been resolved. Your husband is a genius!

My c sticks...I think I might have drooled.

That`s what I tell my husband: NEVER LEAVE ME! I could not fix a single thing that goes screech or blob or won`t obey. And he just looks at it lovingly ("ahh, a nice problem to be fixed!"), scews a bit here and there, and tataa, it works again. You men out there, we really appreciate you!
This has to be said once in a while.
(Hahaha, the veri word is gogicr - sounds like I am choking, but noooo...!)

Ugh, that's TERRIBLE! If it makes you feel any better, my mouse pad has spaz-attacks during which it decides to move my cursor to some other part of the document. While it can be very amusing when it's someone else, it's really f#$*ing annoying when it's you!! =)

I have been suffering from sticky keys here too! Hang in there, friend! Hoping it all works out soon!

Bee and Rose said...

OH! I just read your comment! Hooray!

Amy said...

Inga: He is!

@eloh: The culprit of the sticking was a crumb. You drool at your computer and apparently, I eat. (I still think my bird did it.)

Angela: I've told Mr. Right that if he ever decides to leave me, I'm going with him!

Penney: Yes. Technology is fabulous when it's working for you and not against you!

Dawn: It's all good! Now if I could only get my brain into blogging mode. I'm in a slump.

That's unfortunate!
