    A stupid little pleasure

    ... have just finished cleaning my wireless mouse. Had all sorts of gunk all up inside it and was being a real pain in the bum. A bit of love, bit of scraping with a penknife and bingo, a working mouse again. It's so weird to have a working mouse again, but nonetheless a complete pleasure!

    I'm sure prodding and scraping mice with penknives isn't legal!

    Heh yeh, it was weird scraping off all the dust that had accumulated around the rollers and so on - it was this long strip of the stuff - very odd. But a lot of fun getting it out (so to speak).

    I must say, though, optical mice make things easier.

    I once got told that Gin was really good for cleaning mice, so I poured some into my mouse once not thinking it would do any harm (it was a tiny little drop) and my mouse went a little crazy. The jokes about the mouse being drunk were funny, but buying a new one wasn't.

    I once cleaned out my mouse and there was a dust bunny in there the size of a small house cat.

    when i moved to my new apartment, my girlfriend helped me move my stuff. we forgot where we packaged my mouse at.
    while i was looking for it, she was in the kitchen putting away my stuff, when she heard me shouting and stopping around. i asked her to bring me the broom, cause there was a MOUSE in my new room. lol.
    she runs into the room all scurred and shaky, cause she HATES rodents. the broom in one hand and a spatula in the other. (she musta been putting away my plasticware)

    she stands at the door, watching me in horror as i stmp all around the room, but she cant see what im stomping at, cause i got jnk EVERYwhere, LOL.

    i stop at the corner of the room, and said, "THERE, I KILLED IT! THE *******". or something to that effect.
    i asked for the spatula, and she made a, "THAT'S GROSS'", face.

    i decided to hand her back the spatula, cause yeah, it IS kinda gross to pick up a dead mouse with my cooking utensil. so i crouched down to pick it up by the tail, and i picked up ...

    my computer mouse!


    LMFAO ... i thought it was so funny when she threw the spatula at me. lol.
