Um. Houston, We Have a Problem

I work from home using my computer. I also go into the office a few days a week now. I come home and finish my work on my computer.

Then I started to blog, I post and read a lot. I have found some new creative juice to draw from.

Then. The keys on my laptop started wearing off. The R turned into a P, the F is an upside-down L and the N & D all but disappeared.

If that wasn't enough, miscellaneous keys started going whacky! the left-facing bracket key only works when it wants to. The backspace key doesn't always backspace - rather it types a left bracket symbol - FOREVER - if I let it. I can't use the left shift with the P and some other keys irregularly (only the right shift key.)

Then. The other day, I walked away from my computer, a word document was open. To be honest I didn't just walk away, I went to the office, I was gone for 3 hours.

When I got home, I sat down to 26 pages of the bracket symbol! 26 pages and still going!

My keyboard was the Energizer Bunny of Computers!

And to add insult to injury, today I sat down to find this:

Yup. It's no longer attached.

That's a problem.

Is there a gremlin in my house?
