Computer + Coffee + Toddler = NOT GOOD

So, not good.
Well, the picture says it all.  Yes, my little one poured an entire cup of coffee (cream and sugar) all over the computer keyboard.  Let's just say, it was a lesson in patience!   There was no response to the computer for about 16 hours.  After following the instructions of tech support, still nothing.  Following much stress and admitted, excitement, over the thoughts of a new computer...I simply tried again.  I plugged it in and surprise!  The computer is working!  Yeah!  All of the keys aren't properly working--backspace just won't BACKSPACE!  I haven't tried to burn a disc yet.  I'm a bit anxious about that, considering the quantity of java that flowed from it earlier!  

In the mean time, look what I found online.  A waterproof, roll-up keyboard!  I think this is a great idea.  I thought you all might be fond of the color too!   
In the event you don't hear from me in a timely manner, you'll have a good idea of why.  Cross your fingers that the computer is back to normal.  Maybe the caffeine gave it a boost!
