Washing the keyboard

I don't usually allow myself to have drinks near the computer, because I know I 'm a clutz, and will probably spill. Yesterday was the day to prove myself right. For some reason I had my water bottle all the way full and sitting on the desk, but didn't realize the lid was only sitting on the top and not screwed on. I decided to have a drink, and grabbed the bottle by the lid, big mistake. Next thing I know my shirt is wet half way up, my keyboard is full of water and the top of my desk has things floating on it. Nice work I think to myself, but start to laugh inside. I run and grab a towel and try to salvage what isn't ruined already. Guess I wasnt' quick enough to save the keyboard. It worked just fine for a little while, but then the space bar went out. Next thing I know every key is typing 2 letters. For example SwAzVfEr Meaning Save. I was able to go to the store later last night and get myself a new keyboard, It's ok, but it's defanantly not what I'm used to.
So today I say RIP good friend, hopefully someday I'll have another keyboard as good as you. And everyone remember that washing your keyboard with water doesn't work, please don't try this at home. :)

Just my luck

After being sick for almost 8 weeks, you can imagine my relief when I started feeling better last Friday and wasn't sick all day every day. Guess the party couldn't go on for too long. A cold decided to invade my body on Saturday, and I've been trying to get rid of it ever since.

The project that may never end

For Christmas this year I decided to take my Mother in laws recipes, and make them into a nice book. I decided this before I saw all the recipes she had. Come to find out she has about a million, that she has ripped out of magazines, printed off the Rachael Ray website, or people have given her. After seeing the gigantic book that I was going to have to make, I asked her to go through them so I wouldn't be typing up stuff she never uses anymore. She went through a few and I quickly typed them up. I'm only at around number 100, and I can't get her to go through the rest. Guess she's getting a small condensed version of what I really wanted to do.
Anyone want some recipes?
