***I've decided that I need to share more of myself as a person, so I am going to. Of course if you are only here for the art and you want to skip the ramblings then avoid reading any of my posts that are titled "a funny thing happened on the way to the studio".
This morning I was typing on my laptop and noticed some of the keys were sticking...could this be because I type while I snack? Who knows? I have had the laptop for two years and have never cleaned it...so today I ripped the keys off and lined them up next to me so they wouldn't get jumbled.
There was enough blue and black hair to crotchet a small doilie...there were what appeared to be crumbs of corn ships...which makes me hungry for chicken enchiladas!...don't ask!...it's just the way my brain works. I also found fragments of paper, fibers, fusible film and what I believe to be the limbs of a gummy bear!...I envision some sort of gummy bear mafia stashing the body parts of some problem-causing gummy bear under my keys.
I cleaned the mess, and began replacing the keys when the phone rang *insert absence while on phone call for approx three minutes*
I return and sit down to continue...all the while listening to the crooning of David Campbell *insert dreamy eyes*
I picked up the right angle bracket key and swipe it with my cloth...damn...can't get that dot off!...it took me about five minutes to realise that the dot is in fact a full stop...my excuse is that I was distracted whilst listening to David Campbell!...back to the keys...I see one is missing...I try to think what it could be...not that it matters because it's friggin missing! *insert puzzled look and growing frustration as I rearrange the lounge room to find the missing key* twenty minutes later I find it sitting by the phone...and what had I lost?...I had lost CTRL (control).
