As far as the laptop, I would use a compressor and try and blow it out. Check the manufacturers website for driver updates (or just reload them....that fixed an issue with the USB ports on my Vaio), or if something has been spilled, replace the keyboard.
I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
