I Fried My Baby!
 
I found a printer on sale that will let me rube goldberg a continuous flow system through the color cartridges. It is rather cute.

I went to install it and folded my halogen desk lamp over my laptop keyboard. I heard the painful screaming as two key caps and part of the housing melted.

I am really careful with tools, computers and things so want to punish myself. Accidents happen I guess. I was reminded of how hot halogens are. And at least it fell on keys I haven't used since needing to program functions into them.

My laptop is now scarred though. I will not be as attractive to chicks at the coffee shop anymore. Thinking of cradle robbing by the way. I am so damned picky after all though. I stomped what I thought was a cockroach with hair this morning. It turns out it was somebody's tiny inbred, twitchy miniature demi cup poodle. I ran fast and picked the pink perky bow fragments out from between my toes so I would not get blamed.

Sounds like a "personal problem"!
Ouch! :)

Someone I know, had them on the exterior of their duplex.

Against the cedar siding -
No more duplex!! :(
No one got hurt, though!
