Always try to remember to refresh your display every day, or at least once in a while. It does wonders for it.

Kids laughing in background

See, I told you she thought we were actually using that POS when we were actually playing with our I-PHONES. She really thinks she is punishing us too. Man this is way funnier for real than in that TV commercial with that little Kid.

HA HA HA

Oh crap my sides hurt.

She takes her e-pet a bit too seriously. It doesn't get enough exercise chasing the mouse pointer around, it insists on a real walk.

It's just so sad to see the original KrisDelTM Roverware© being taken out for recycling like that. This stuff was brand new not long ago.

Okay, look-- her husband said the PC needed to be re-booted. But the saleslady at the shoe store was absolutely NO HELP AT ALL.

But, it worked out okay! There was a buy-one-get-one on the shoes she liked!
