Happiness Is…

July 7, 2010

I’ve mentioned before that I am terrible at waiting for things.  Like I am seriously bad at it.  I hate to wait for my computer to wake up, my email to load, and the camera to catch up with my trigger finger.  I hate waiting at red lights, I hate to wait in line for anything (and so I’ve been putting off renewing my drivers license for months).  Waiting kills me.  But the past 10 days may have been the worst wait of my life.  (Ok, not really.  But the worst wait in recent memory.)  But finally she is here!

Unsurprisingly she is absolutely filthy.   Well, now she’s only half filthy, it’s not hard to see the keys I’ve cleaned. (Thank you dear trusty box of Magic Erasers.  Did you know you can get them by the case!?!)  I’ve obviously still got some more work to do.  She is going to visit Stan the Typewriter Man in the morning and she needs to look somewhat presentable.  And by presentable I mean I’ve already used a whole can of canned air blowing dust and grime out of her insides and I’m on my third Magic Eraser for her keys.  Also, my patio is covered with grimy Q-tips.

And that is what happiness is.

P.S. I named her Beauty.

    Beauty is awesome and will be even more so when you get her cleaned up. BTW, how many popsicles has Creamy had today?

    I’m sure you’ll likely find me crazy for this, but heck – I sorta am. I LOVE doing stuff like this (cleaning little bits with q-tips, canned air, magic erasers, etc.). There’s something SO satisfying about it to me. Wish I were there to help!

    I’m excited for you. Didn’t get a chance to say so last week (or whenever I finally caught up), but wanted you to know that my heart jumped a little for you! And I hate waiting, too. SO IMPATIENT. Then I wonder where my kids get it!

    Which brings me to my impatient question for YOU, missy! Are you gonna do a tutorial? 😉

    Welcome Beauty!!! So happy for you. I think Creamie might get very bored watching you stare longingly at Beauty all day, tho. And just make sure Stan doesn’t get any ideas about your new girlfriend!

    Magic erasers are the most magical thing ever. They amaze me!
    Beauty is a beauty!

    Have you been using this magical machine or is Beauty just to sit and admire? 😉 If you have been using her it would be awesome if you could post a picture of a page typed by Beauty, I love looking at typewriter type!
