Crazy Train

02.15.05 | Comment?

So I’m typing this on my freshly reassembled keyboard. I’m quite relieved that it works, because I took it apart and put it back together, mostly from memory. I brag.

But this next thing is not worth bragging about: I took it apart so I could really clean it. Surface cleaning with alcohol swabs and q-tips was not enough. I’ve used this keyboard for over four years, which explains why I could see little crumbs, dust bunnies, and remnants of Chief’s coat between the keys. Every time I typed something I felt the need to burn wash my hands. Don’t blame me; I got it from my husband. We must have different versions of it, though, because watching me pry off all 104 keys and give them a scrub-down with a toothbrush, he suggested that I might be crazy.

I’d say on any given day at least one of us offers a rendention of the first few bars of Ozzy’s “Crazy Train” or Patsy Cline’s rendition of Willie Nelson’s “Crazy”. It’s good natured, but totally appropriate.
