aka my pink sony vaio laptop. please just hold on to life a little longer. i know you are dying a slow death. but you see we are trying to sell our house. we have 3 small children. and we are broke when it comes to purchasing anything that isn’t food or an absolute necessity. you loved. i said i wanted a pink laptop and you came to me for christmas. you didn’t have far to travel as we were practically living near the north pole. but you have traveled. and you have been well used. so i’m just asking that you please hold on for a few more months. at least give me time to move all my photos on to a disc or 20. and then if you just have to, you can let go. you are making some terrible sounds. even some new ones i’ve never heard before. i promise to shut you down more often. and someday i will convince your other user not to always have the volume so loud. hold on pinky just a little while longer…..
