Mousepad or oriental rug?

December 8, 2013
Persian rug with mousepad ambitions
I got myself a new mouse pad! I saw it at the store for about 3 bucks. It looks like an oriental rug, except it isn't. It's a mouse pad. I loved it so much I just had to buy it.
When I got home I ripped it out of the packaging, and put my mouse on it. Unfortunately it didn't just lóók like an oriental rug. It also had the texture of an oriental rug. It was like pushing my mouse through a mountain of snow.
It would have been so cool to have an oriental rug for a mouse pad.
So now I'm busy, thinking of ways to still get my money's worth out of my oriental rug.
This is what I've come up with so far:

  • Use it as a rug. Except no one would see it lying beneath the coffee table, it's so small.
  • Use it as a table cloth
  • Use it to put hot pans on
  • Use it as a painting

Right now it's languishing on my desk. As it should be! Shame on it, for pretending to be a mouse pad.
What does your mouse pad look like?
