Today’s Book Blogger Hop question is: Off the book topic…do you use a mouse pad? If so, what is on it?
Not only do I not use a mousepad, I don’t use a mouse! I’ve been on a laptop since I started college, and while I think I probably had a mouse at first (maybe…?) I’ve done so much typing on my lap that I’m all about the trackpad now.
I do have a mouse at my job…that was a very secondary reflection, as I tend to think about my private life when I blog! I don’t have a mousepad there either though. People who have tried to use my computer say that the mouse moves pretty wildly…though it always looks to me like they’re swinging it about quite a lot. My guess is the mousepad/no mousepad piece really makes a difference in how people move the mouse.
If I was going to have a mousepad, I’d probably go for something geeky, maybe Star Trek or Doctor Who-themed.
Where do you stand (or scroll)? Mouse or no mouse? Pad or no pad?
One thought on “Blog Hop: Of Mice and Mousepads”
We have a desktop Mac with a trackpad, so no mouse or mousepad. It took some getting used to at first, but is very similar to the trackpad on my Apple laptop, so I adapted to it pretty easily. For work, with my Microsoft computer, I have a mouse and a black, ergonomically correct mousepad. So I actually use both!
