SINGING THE BLUES

Sunday afternoon, as I was commenting on a post by one of my BOLGMASTERS, Crackerlilo, I spilled an entire glass of wine on my keyboard and onto the floor.

The PUGLETS, curious as always ran to the growing puddle and started licking the wine off the floor. Faced with the decision to either clean the keyboard or have a pair of drunk dogs staggering around the house, I chose (to the dismay of the PUG) to run for paper towels to wipe the floor.
By the time I got to the keyboard, it was now colored a dark burgundy and saturated with a fine California Shiraz.
I managed to shake the wine off of the keyboard, wipe it down and allow it to dry......

By Sunday evening, the keyboard was dry but still somewhat intoxicated. I could only type with the letters on the left hand side of the keyboard. By Monday evening, the keyboard was relatively sober and I could type will all the keys except the G and H..... which have never fully recovered. Sorry Blogzie.... I did want to comment to a post but without the "G" BLOZIE just didn't look right on that comment.

It's time to part ways with my first keyboard..... A very sad situation (I love my "things" and become very possessive)!
Hopefully, by the weekend, I will be back on track and happily tapping the keys of a new keyboard!
In the meantime, I will be spending time looking out my office windows to make certain none of my staff are watching me reading and responding to your blogs!


WELCOME HOME POBBLE!

Now I know being on the wagon has its advantages. Well one, I can't spill wine on my computer.

You do bring a smile to my face.....

Well, thank you, DonDon!

I lost a portable that way. Fried my motherboard. If they could just make these things liquid-proof!

You are not alone my friend... my last iMac keyboard tired a glass of Chardonney and died of alcohol poisioning. I found a replacement on ebay because a "new" one just wasn't the same. My new Mac doesn't drink either. I now keep my wine away from her keyboard.

LOL... well I have a similar story... the last time I there was a house-party in my house my friend gifted my keyboard by throwing up right in the middle of it. I never used it again lol. It worked fine, but I just couldn't touch the keys. :D

Back in the day, waaaay back, there was somehow a water bong in my apartment. I dunno how it got there...

Anyhoo, my two kitty cats knocked it over and drank the water. Talk about a couple of bleary eyed cats. They scarfed up all of their kitty snacks, then took a looong nap.
