Unity, by S.D. Perry
3) WHAT’S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?

At home: I don't remember, but I have a great one that has a picture of me and my son on it when he was about 2. It doesn't work really well as a mouse pad (the trackball slips) but I always keep it nearby. There's an identical picture on my wall.

Of the remaining primaries/secondaries, probably yellow. If you want to dig deeper I don't like aquamarine or magenta.

hi nn in onl i om m ih hn. (This sentence was written only with keys from my right hand)
Or do you mean do I punch the right keys at all? If I didn't, they'd look like this:
astru fhatj tkeuetka tuas;yio a; thqw
This doesn't make sense...
