QWERTY Keyboard Fun

Virtue. Virtue. Virtue virtue vurtue. That word is FUN to type. Now I know why the Republicans bandy it about all the time. What other words are fun? Climax. Because of the X, obviously. Obviously is not fun. It takes a lot of typing to pound out an obviously. The best name to type is Fred. Fred. Fred. Fred. All four letters just right there in a cute little cube on the keyboard. Frederick, almost as fun, and almost as quick. Jeffrey. In the same league, but not with the ease of Fred, or even Frederick. Acetylsalicyclic acid. A long word, and almost fun, except for that far-away, orphaned L. Smoke. Or the Bill Cosby derivative, smoboke. Smoboke is easier to type, because of that bridging B. Smoke, well, it’s all right.

Now some phrases.

“The extremely decent Miss Malone.” Not so much fun.
“Visions of werewolves dancin’ in my noggin.” Again, not so much fun.
“Rats live on no evil star.” As Lenny from “The Simpsons” would say, “Gettin’ better.”
“Well, come on in, Simpson. Perhaps I can find something to scald you with.” Not easy at all on the fingers, C. Montgomery Burns.
“Now it’s over, I’m dead and I haven’t done anything that I want, or I’m still alive and there’s nothing I want to do.” Urrgh. No way in heaven, TMBG.

I’ll have to keep working on phrases. They’re not as compact as words. (The preceding sentence brought to you by the Well Duh! Institute of Sugar City, Idaho.)

I remember the good old days of watching you type on your computer and laughing our heads off at the strange typos. Nothing quite like those days...simple bills... little pressure. Homemade waffles.

Of those, the only thing I have left are the homemade waffles. Mmmmm. Waffles. . .
