It seemed like a good idea at the time

I have managed to ruin my computer even more. I got home today determined to write up some blogs and after the first sentence in I was already annoyed. My space bar hasn’t been working properly. I have to press the key in the EXACT center of the bar. This is not exactly convenient considering my right thumb and my space bar are good friends…so much so that there is a little warn oval on the lower right hand corner. After suffering though a week of hyper extending my thumb to the center I decided enough was enough. I knew what to do I had done it before. Simply remove another key and swapping the little rubber spring thing. Easy right?

First I chose F9…who uses that key anyway? Not me well the little button was too little so then without really thinking I flipped up the shift key and swapped the part. Problem what the hell I cant get the shift key back on right….I spent 45minutes…yes 45 minutes trying to put it back on effectively breaking both plastic holder bracket and the clip on the key itself.

Now Ava no big deal you are smart enough to have been messing around with the vestigial shift key that is on the right hand side of the keyboard. Well I hate to shatter your perfectionist dream of me but I managed to break the my 2nd most used key. Oh and the other vestigial shift key has a different type of bracket so I can’t even fix it using that…I quit life.

Photo: by me. You can tell its my actually keyboard because under the key you can see a fine network of entangled dog hairs.

    i also find that "fixing" things doesn't always go as planned more often than not.

    do you maybe want to go canoeing or kayaking next weekend? i was thinking it might be fun for saturday afternoon. i don't know if that even sounds remotely fun for you and also rory's opinion would be considered (i know you are also one of ava's faithful readers, i can't fathom writing a facebook message after i click on all of your plant requests (smiley face) so 2 birds one stone writing it here) top

    Oh no! That sooo sucks! Did you ever find a way to get it all fixed? I don't think I could live w/o my space or my shift. F9...yes..I can live w/o that but not the other two. LOL! top
