Okay; so now that the suspense has built on this one... here's
"Stupid things you wanted to know, but were too embarrassed to ask"

My mouse is a "Logitech" brand; inferring that I am a starduster because I've had my hand on the mouse so long, the logo is now imprinted in my palm; only backwards (like a silly putty transfer).

Yours might say "tfosorciM" or "ORCIM snoitavonni" or...

(but you made Nikita's day, now she knows she was not alone!)

- on the rare occasion you do venture out of you "dusting chamber", your own dog barks at you.
- you realise the rumours of a "crazy hermit lady" going around town is about you
- your family think you've lost the plot when you start wearing numerous tennis wrist bands on your mouse arm.
-your pale appearance and absence have people wondering if you've just come out of jail.

- You throw jelly out of your window to produce airogel.

- Poor Spongebob has become your victim. (There must be some particles with so many tracks!!)

- Your favorite whistle tune is "Born to be Wild-Two"

- The horizontal lines in your children's exercise books make one of your hands move back and forth all the time.

When you going outside at the rainy day and look at the grey clouds covers all the sky, you think - "Hmm, thats just a bad focus".
