|05:35 pm - A'ight, listen up, sinners!|
In my previous entry, you will notice that I broke down in desperation, and prayed unto the Lord that he might grant to me a USB mouse.
You laughed, I know you did.
You called me mad.
And yet ... less than ONE HOUR later, what should show up at my door but my boss.
Carrying, yes, it's true, a USB mouse.
And you know what I'm using to click on stuff RIGHT NOW?
A USB mouse.
I think you all know what I'm getting at here. That's right.
REPENT YE, FOR THE DAY OF USB MICES IS AT HAND!
Can I get a hallelujah?
Now, the Lord's busy what with all the Winter Storm Watch 2004 stuff going on. So, for now, I will take a pass on the touchpad issue, even though, as qubegirlso correctly pointed out, touchpads are of the devil. And the caps lock thing ... I think I'll just get over that.
Ahh, the power of prayer.
If you'd threatened to kick his weenie ass and take his lunch money, you'd have gotten the USB mouse and a pony!
Foolish humans are all about the grovel and never about grabbing hold of what's really available. This is why your planet is being bulldozed next Thursday to make room for a new highway.Don't tell Arthur; I don't want to listen to the whining.
I'm following Gkar into hell, Babe.
I want a high speed connection AND a Pony.
*puts on my Weenie kicking boots*
haw lay loo yah! Hooray for a real mouse!
so, what about the caps key?
THOU SHALT NOT TEMPT THE LORD THY GOD!!!!!!
Oh, c'mon. USB mices are packing our landfills. Thank God for small favors, anyway. But what about that acid-breathing, gold-coin-shitting, 50-foot dragon I asked for? Where's your Messiah now?
You're just jealous because MY god likes me enough to send me a USB mouse just when I needed it.
is still wondering how to feed that pony he got.
Uh, yeah. So he's calling it a "pony," is he?
Oh, not to worry. There are lots of small, unattended children in my neighbourhood.
Well, were. He's a very hungry pony. :P
lol.. all hail the USB mouse.
I love my intellimouse. :)
I came here to visit because somebody told me your birthday is close to mine and what do I find .. a post about USB mice??? Mice are for the WEAK! The laptop trackpad is PURE and must be used to the exclusion of other weaker devices.
My Holy USB Mouse will SMITE thine unspeakable trackpad!!!
With great vengeance and FUUUUURIOUS anger!
The way of the trackpad is holy! Do not be tempted by worldly "ergonomic" devices! They will corrupt you and bring a plague of cords upon your desk! Beware, I say! BEWARE!
Thanks for the post and the comments. Sitting at my desk here at work and checking out blackbirdshaq
's friends page I came across your entry, and I want to say, I really appreciated it. It made me laugh on an otherwise dull and uneventful day!
Heh. Thanks. Laff-a-minit, that's us. :-)
Sometimes the comments are even better than the actual blog entries. I love days like that. heheheh
reminds me, i need to replace the batteries in my mouse.
