Plans for The Minion

The Minion’s 18th birthday is coming up in the first week of September. and I know what she really needs, and so we’re putting out this call to anyone who wants to join us:

Simply put, She needs a laptop. She’s currently using my 11-year old Macintosh iBook, but the problem is that it’s so old, that she can’t get a lot of programs to work on it, and worse yet, a lot of websites won’t even display properly. She’ll need a laptop at college next year, but she’s also really going to need to go online for various application processes (including scholarships) during this upcoming semester at school. So, that’s what we’ve decided to get her.

We had thought that her Mom had promised her one, but it turns out that isn’t happening. (Don’t even get me started)

Our plan is to pool as much as we can get together, and get her the best we can for the money we’ve got, as a single big “this is from everybody who thinks you’re keen– now go out there and kick ass” kinda thing. So far we’ve got the two of us, and various grandparents participating.

If you’d like to participate, let me know.

  1. I’d like to and once faire starts, I’d be at a better place to do so financially. You have a time frame you need contributions by?

  2. To allow time to gather everything together, get the order done, and have Lappy in time for her b-day, I would say that we probably need cashola by the end of this month.

  3. I’d really like to help out as well…cuz of course Minion rocks :) It might be right towards the end of the month before I can pitch anything your way though…cuz hours have sucked at work lately. I’ll let you know.
