I broke the touchpad on my laptop. Have you ever tried to use a laptop when you are cross-eyed drunk with oven mitts on? Well, I am stone cold sober (and have been for months of course) with perfectly adroit digits, and the result is the same. I try to bring the pointer here, it overshoots. I try to click on something, nothing happens. I try to scroll down and end up highlighting an entire page. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!
I leaned too hard on the massively wide space next to the touchpad. Honestly, if you aren't meant to lean on it they shouldn't have made it so wide! Probably doesn't help that my laptop position is to sit on the couch with the computer against my knees (feet on coffee table...finally got the Moose to stop yelling at me for it, because preggos need to put their feet up and in that case he needs to buy me an ottoman or footstool), the front of the computer against my bump, and my hands weighting it down so it doesn't tip or fall off. Oh well. It is still under warranty, so I can get it fixed, I just don't feel like driving 40 minutes to the shop to sort it out today. Maybe next weekend. In the meantime, it will drive me bat shit crazy! Not that I can't use the interwebs on my phone or on my kindle...but I love my laptop. It is so much easier to use!!
I could go get a wireless mouse, but that would involve the drive I don't want to take today. The mouse on our old desktop won't hook up to any sort of newish computer, so that is out of the question. And shit...my space bar feels a bit funny now too...like there is something under it. Might be time to get off the computer before I break it beyond repair.
