After the Rain

current mood: relieved

I'm back! After more than a month without a drop of rain, we had three straight days of it last week, and my ceiling leaked. Of course, the one place in the whole house where the water came in was directly over my desk. My keyboard was soaked, so I've had it upside down, draining, for a week, while I crossed my fingers and hoped it would still work. I decided this morning that it had to be dry by now, so I just turned on the computer for the first time since the deluge. And as you can see, it's working! But there went my chance to enter that writing contest with the Oct. 31 deadline. Not to mention the 399 e-mail messages waiting for me to sift through. To anyone who has been trying to get in touch with me via e-mail with no reply, that's why. Give me a few days now to get caught up....

Owie. I've heard of folks running their keyboard through the dishwasher without killing the circuitry. But frankly, I'd use the leak as an excuse to get a new keyboard. ;) (Says she who still has the same keyboard that came with her Compaq back in the dark ages of 1999, but who has also killed three keyboards at work in the past 18 months.)
