Today I’m taking part in the Book Blogger Hop, a weekly hop hosted by Billy B at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer (originally created by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books). You can see the hop schedule here.
“Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.”
Question of the Week: Off the book topic…do you use a mouse pad? If so, what is on it?
(submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)
Well, first let’s get the semantics out of the way: in England, a ‘mouse pad’ usually refers to the motion-sensitive touchpad on a laptop and we call the plastic surface that you put under your mouse, a ‘mouse mat’.
I rarely use a mouse mat at home because I’m always on my laptop and don’t bother to use a mouse with that unless I’m doing some digital drawing and need the precision, in which case I have a red mouse mat with flowers on that my husband bought me. My husband is really into his gaming and he has a number of very expensive mouse mats from brands like Razor and Overwatch which I think are a bit excessive but he loves collecting them.
At work, I have a PC and the mouse mat I use for that is one I got from going to see Shrek the Musical in Nottingham several years ago. It has pictures of Shrek characters on and a very outdated character from 2012 or something, but it does its job. Actually, I would quite like one of those photo mouse mats with pictures of my daughter on. Mother’s Day is coming up, so you never know!
Do you use a mouse mat/mousepad? If so, what’s on it?
