Last night, my beloved keyboard died.
I don’t know if it went out peacefully in its sleep, or if it suffered a long, painful death. I don’t know if it had some rare keyboard disease, or if it commited suicide (I pretty much doubt that, given the love and constant attention it recieved from my cuddling fingers… Then again, you never know, right?)
I just found it lifeless this morning.
This means no blogging for a couple of days, at least. No writing offline either, unless I take some pen and paper out… But I doubt I’ll do that. I’ll still come and have a look around, and I’ll take care of the Word of the Day Challenge when it is my turn to do so, but that should be about it.
I only have my tablet, and that onscreen keyboard makes it impossible to type more than a line or two without going insane. It has double auto-correct (in French AND English) and tends to purpusefully pretend it didn’t notice I actually switched languages (it systemically corrects in the wrong language…)
When I noticed the total nonresponsiveness of Mr Keyboard this morning, I felt a bit distressed. Have you ever taken (or tried to take) your teenager’s cellphone away for a day? Well, I would more than gladly turn my own in, and trade it to get my dear keyboard’s life back!
Things are under control for now, because I am at work. For now, can write this on my pc. But tonight…
And of course I’ll have tons of ideas and inspiration. It is writen (lol) in the sky.
I still have a glimpse of hope that when I hit home, I’ll try to turn it on again, and see its cute blue light shining, then hit my password and actually see the letters on the screen.
A glimpse. But most of me feels pretty bitter about it. I think I am hanging around Ben’s blog too much…
