Keep the Gel away from the Computer!!

The other night I was finishing up my tags by giving them a coat of gel medium...oops, it fell on my key board...this isn't the thick stuff you have to scoop, its the more liquid kind...well, what do you do? I got out a paint brush and tried pushing as much of it out as I could. I finally got some warm water and poured over it and turned up upside down on paper towels. Paper towels are NOT a good idea...yes, you guessed it, they stuck, so I got more warm water and scrubbed it off. lol. I just knew my keyboard was going to have to become a craft project the next morning...so I tested a few keys. They all work...but one gets stuck...the Z ok, thats not to bad...until I reali_ed that I live in a city that has a _ in it. All my business log ins....have a _ in it. Kei_er this and Kei_er that. lol.

I know I shouldn"t be laughing. But the end of your post had me cracking up. Did the _ ever get unstuck. Maybe if you took a nap you could catch some zzzzzz's! Sorry couldn't help it. Sharon

Oh Laurie, how terrible! Sounds like something I might do! At least you can't blame those sweet kitties for this mishap!

I am sorry but I am not laughing AT you I'm laughing with everyone else... That sounds just like something I would do.
The other night I was spray gluing paper and forgot to look at the end of the nossel and sprayed my arm pit. Does that count? Anyway my hubby got out the handy Goof Off and tried to wipe it away and of course. I had just shaved my arm pit that morning. WOW! I would much rather have just used one arm for a whole week....lol Thanks for the laugh. Sharon

Doh! An altered keyboard?! Not good, not good at all.
For the record, I spilled almost half a cup of coffee on my keyboard once, and let's just say it did not enjoy the steaming caffeine jolt, even if it was early in the morning. After a few days things settled down and all works almost like new.
