So, I extracted myself from bed this morning, like every morning; and staggered to the kitchen to start making my breakfast, pretty much like every morning; and then sat down at my computer to confirm the complete and total absence of email, like damn near every morning. And that's when I noticed that something was... amiss.

My Escape key is gone. There's just an empty socket on my keyboard where it used to be.

It's just weird, because I'm pretty sure it was there when I went to bed last night. And having a key vanish from your keyboard without known cause or means is odd. All the other keys seem pretty firmly attached, and I didn't know of any special issues with that one. And it's not like it's a big deal -- I could re-attach it if I could find it, and no harm done. But it doesn't seem to be anywhere around.

Gnomes, do you think? Or is this more of a fairy job?

Update: It was the cat, apparently.
