Pinky the Laptop

Pinky the laptop is dead, for the most part anyway. Also known as the e-squeaker, the laptop was purchased sometime ago (probably earlyish 2005). It served faithfully since then standing up to abuses ranging from being dropped to being walked on repeatedly by a toddler. 3 different power cords were destroyed in its lifetime. The laptop earned its "pinky" moniker when a few months ago the screen turned pink. Everything white was pink and various green blobs showed up on most pictures viewed on it. A few weeks ago, the screen went dark and the laptop became pretty much unusable. Bob hooked it up to a monitor to rescue some info of it and it had been interred underneath the couch since then.

I started this blog on Pinky. I guess that's why I chose the plainest looking background. It was bright pink on my computer! So in honor of that I changed the background to pink. I don't know how long it's going to stay this color. This is actually a much tamer shade of pink than what it looked like on Pinky.

I just observed a moment of silence for Pinky.

Did my blog show up as brown, like rainbow sherbet when you mix the green and pink together, or was it still green?

Ah Pinky... Is Pinky the reason Jaide learned the phrase, "Ah, come one, Come on" as she pounded our toy cash register?

It's hard to remember exactly Cindy, I think we kind of compensated for the color weirdness. I think it looked green for the most part with weird flecks and stuff. And it might have been part of why Jaide picked up that phrase. From Bob of course. :)

Okay, I got tired of that yogurt pink color so now it's yellow like the cheerful bathroom. contented ahhh
