Well Damn

Right now I'm on my older black laptop. I had a small accident involving the keyboard of my red laptop and some mouthwash. No, I'm not going to explain how that one happened. I'm sure your imagination will do it more justice than any kind of explanation. The only clue I can really offer you is that there was no lid on the bottle of the mouthwash and I picked up the wrong mouthwash.

Right now I'm letting it air out but things are kind of screwy. So far the damage is limited to the left side of the keyboard. What's basically happening is that buttons are getting mixed up. When I press a button a different thing happens. Plus the control key is broken and is always pressed down so whenever I press s it tries to save whatever I'm doing. That wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't trying to TYPE THE WORD S. Also for some reason pressing the caps lock button presses the right arrow. It'd be funny if it wasn't such a problem. Or if it wasn't my laptop. Hopefully letting it dry out will do it some good and it can heal. I've got it turned off to help stop any kind of electrical shortage. I'll turn it on again later and with any luck it'll work and if not, I'll be able to rip stuff off of it and be able to save it. Damn I'd hate to wipe it again after it's so close to the last time I had to do it. It was actually only last month.

For now I'm just going to sort out my external hard drive and go back to what I was doing anyway. Which is writing, listening to my musics, and reviewing wrestling for I do enjoy those reviews but so far there hasn't been a smooth Friday for me.

Heck of a way to cap off my week though. Yesterday I was absolutely wasted and destroyed after my busy week, and today I wake up feeling refreshed for once and I accidentally break my laptop.


  1. Ah, sorry to hear about the keyboard, Mark. I know it's not the most helpful tip you've received, but I hear those rubber keyboards that don't have gaps between the keys tend to stand up nicely when it comes to the intervention of foreign fluids. Though, I have no idea what they cost.

  2. Sorry about what happened to the keyboard Mark, I had to learn my lesson about having liquids around the computer the hard way as well, ever since then I've been very careful. For future reference dude if the minute you spill something on the keyboard you instantly turn everything off and then extensively dry it it prevents the circuit from short circuiting, worth keeping in mind.

  4. I hope it gets fixed - that sucks! There may still be hope, though - my phone went through the washing machine and has eventually come out fine!x

  5. Look on the bright side. At least your keyboard is minty fresh.

  6. Now, more than ever, you need to get a new computer.

    You won't regret it.

  7. glad you are feeling refreshed today issues make me mad because i dont know how to fix them...the problem with mouth wash is that it might be sticky which will really mess things up even after drying...not sure the alcohol in it will do anything but...ack....hope you work it out...

  8. I really can not be of much assistance to you on this one. I don't know much about fixing computers, and I have really bad breath.

  9. Well at least no cats were involved! :-)

    Awww but seriously! Hope your laptop's recovered!! I am intrigued by the "wrong" mouthwash! LOL! Take care
