funeral for a friend

Laptop (May 2005 - April 2007)

Departed this life on April 28, 2007, Laptop O'Computer of Madison, WI (formerly of Richmond, VA). Born in Austin, TX, Laptop O'Computer was graciously brought to Dangerous Mind's Virginia home by Dangerous Dad. Before making her big trip to the Midwest, Laptop hacked into the Law Firm Network to give Dangerous Mind (and her awesome officemate) access to Cubs games via* Laptop also provided remote access to the Law Firm Network to allow Dangerous Mind to look like she was at work when she was really at home taking a shower (read: too hung over to come into the office), and enabled Dangerous Mind to do work for Law Firm while on vacation in Texas. O'Computer also provided hours of mindless entertainment, be it playing Call of Duty 2 during exam time, replaying episodes of "The Office" in the Law Library, or granting hours of distractions via the internet during class time. Laptop worked tirelessly through two semesters' worth of laptop-based exams; however, the thought of having to do this a third semester (not including two more after this) made poor Laptop's little Pentium 4 processor give out.

Ms. O'Computer was preceded in death by her first two motherboards. She is survived by slavedriver/owner Dangerous Mind.

A memorial service honoring Laptop's life will take place in Austin, TX on May 14, 2007. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Dangerous Mind Lives in Frakkin' Eagle River for the Summer Fund.

*Once I told my boss that I couldn't come down to do a conference call until the Cubs game ended. And that's what my boss told the lawyer from a Slightly Larger Firm in Florida with whom we were having the conference call. Lawyer from SLFiF had a good laugh over that one.
