Note to Self
June 13, 2006

Note to self:
Never buy a trackball with an easily removeable ball ever ever ever again.

I think I spend more time with the ball removed and spinning it on the funky mousepad than I do actually using it. Sure, it gives me greater control than my Gateway mouse. Sure, it's more ergonomic. But boy, is it a great toy to roll around the desk. And spin without letting it leave the mousepad (and thus make loads of noise). Or to occasionally bounce when no one else is in the office.

I wonder if I could replace it with a superball ... you know those really big superballs in the vending machines for a dollar. Hrm. I think I have one of those at home ... I'll have to bring that in and test this new theory out.

Yeah, so I'm thinking maybe I need to go back to the doctor and see about some ADHD meds again ... *sigh*.

So is it one of the Logitech Wireless Trackballs? I typically refuse to use anything else ;-)
Can't stand mice anymore after getting used to the control of a trackball!

Red Monkey said: nope, it's not even wireless or anything nifty like that. It's got a glitterball in it and is opaque enough that the laser shines through it. What can I say? It was on sale. :)

They make meds for ADHD? My wife mentioned something about having me go to the doctor and see about meds, we discussed it one evening and, look kittens!

What was I saying?

Red Monkey said: Yeah, they have these nifty pills now, but you can't take them with citrus drinks because then they don't ... I love orange juice. ... Wha? Huh?

Wow, I am glad I am not the only one who plays with the ball in her trackball. I always seem to lose mine either in the couch, or under the couch. (I am not lucky enough to have a desk)
