All Fixed Up With A New Keyboard & Mouse

Well, I headed over to Office Depot this afternoon and ended up with a new Microsoft Wireless Laser Desktop 3000 comfort curve keyboard and high definition laser mouse. (Wow that was a mouthful!)   It's really nice, however it will take a little time getting to the "comfort curve ergonomic approved" shape of the keyboard. 

Once several years ago, I bought one of those super duper ergonomic keyboards and it actually hurt my hands worse than a regular one.  So I'm hoping this one will be easier on my poor old arthritic hands.

I went to see "Get Smart" around noon today.  It was just as goofy & silly as the old TV show.  I recommend it...but I'm not sure kids would understand the "dry comedy."  And there are just a few places where there are some slightly sexual remarks. Steve Carell and Ann Hathaway were perfect for this movie.  They were so much like Don Adams and Barbara Feldon. 

Now I'm going to go into the "cone of silence" for the evening.

P.S.  By the way~I am so far behind on alerts....yikes!!!  Please excuse me if I don't get to your journals.  And I also have tons of stuff to relist on eBay.  So will be busy on the computer for the next few days, in between my other tasks.

Personally I don't think that snappy new keyboard would improve my ten thumb typing one bit, but I hope it is good for you.

Wonderful looking keyboard and mouse Linda!  Well done.  I didn't know you could get a wireless keyboard!  Another something to put on my wish list!  I always loved Get Smart as a child.  I will probably wait for this film to come out on DVD though.  With the cost of going to a movie today we can buy the DVD's much cheaper than actually going to the theature!  It's crazy!

You do Ebay????  Let us in on your merchandise.  I spend so much time on Journals, what am I doing asking for more time consuming computer areas?  Does that make any sense?

Congrats on your new keyboard. I have never used the wireless kind of keyboard before. Do they work better than that others? I understand about being behind on journals. If I miss a day on the computer it takes me two days just to catch up. ..hugs, Christine
