    I'm not fat at all, but sometimes I can get

    I like to kick back and watch videos while I eat on my computer, sometimes on my laptop, but more than likely on my desktop.

    Doing It Now

    Just had ravioli's. I'm always very careful, and I have been doing it for years. I never have ruined a laptop because of spilling something on it. Then again, I'm not so much as a klutz as I used to be. I have outgrown it a lot.
