Monster keyboard

June 24, 2017 - 16:08 -- Admin

Having chewed through yet another cheapie from K-Mart I rode into town on my tricycle and bought a heavy duty gaming mechanical keyboard. It throbs with an unearthly green light. So far the keys have held up to my rapid pounding and they don't feel like they're going to lose their characters after but a week of use. It seems and feels robust.Finally a keyboard that suits my typing style of furious, frenetic and a lot of backspacing.

Earful of water

One of the many fails of my body, and curiously right from near start of life, is my propensity for middle ear infections. Without antibiotics I'd have been dead from multiple infections as a child. I have stents in my ear drums to let out discharge from the middle ear but it's a two-way street and I have to keep water out of my ears lest it enter the middle ear then pool with intent.

There were a pair of them; they'd come through the gate that is almost always locked. I was in the shed and the new placement of the desk affords a concealed look through the small bird bush to the gate and door of the house.One of them was looking at me but I didn't know if she could actually see me given the small bird bush.

Helmets good

I thought he was sitting down but he was standing so when I took off he fell out of the back from four feet up and landed with a crack on the concrete. The helmet wasn't clipped on but it stayed on and protected his head. Without it he could be dead.The accident was my fault---I have should have checked before heading off he was safely seated---and he didn't want to get back in.

Nearly creamed self on an another lamppost (2d6)I went off the path in an overshoot just missed a smack into a lamppost. Am I drawn to them as a moth to a flame? Or is this just a natural cluster of near lampposting which happens to all cyclists?I once rode into a bike path divider---hit it centre on with the front tyre and bounced back.Maybe I'm just shit at riding bikes?I'm my own Rank Organisation (2d6)The movie company The Rank Organisation features a man striking a large gong.
