I've built up a rather large list of things that I want to buy. I recently bought another techno-gadget toy in the hopes that it might reduce the repetitive strain that I place on my wrists. This gadget is one of those funky contour keyboards. It was recommended by a friend and although expensive, comes with a sixty day return policy.

I'm also looking at buying several pairs of new shoes (faire boots, dance sneakers, dress dance shoes), new hose and trousers for faire (my current pair is sad.) I'm also looking at buying a new instrument. I'm looking at getting a hammer dulcimer soon. I borrowed a friends to try it out and see whether it agreed with my wrists. Playing the hammer dulcimer wasn't painless, but I think/hope that it would work as a second instrument. Albeit, an instrument that requires up to ninety minutes of tuning before playing.

I'm really not a material guy. I usually don't want that much. But everytime I seem to turn around, there seems to be something else I want.

BTW, this is my first post on my new keyboard. Interesting. We'll see how it goes.

Is this one of the keyboards where the left half and the right half are seperated and at angles to one another? Or is it even funkier than that?

Funkier than that. Check out the classic kinesis for more information about the keyboard.

GYAAAH! Wow, that is funky. Working okay, though, I assume?

It works. I should have a better feel by the end of the week whether it will reduce the stress that I put on my wrists. I have found it interesting, you don't have to push the keys all the way for them to be active, which actually encourages you to use less effort when typing.

Oh, the keyboard with the key wells! I've never used one, keep us posted on how it goes?

I highly recommend the dance sneakers; I've enjoyed mine - even though they're a tad bit small, for Irish they're miles better than regular shoes, and even wearing them to FNW is cool.

Which brand did you end up going with?

Mine are Capezio, but I've heard good things about Blochs, too. Make sure to try them out for a while in the store, or get a store that has a return policy that includes letting you dance in them once to see how they work out, so you're sure you have the right size. Remember that feet swell whilst dancing. ;-)
