      It will show in your recent activity and will show to friends that you like those pages. You can go to your home page and where it says “Activity” you can hide each page. Or just unlike after the drawing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh my gosh! Thank you! I hope I win the iMac! You wouldn’t believe the condition my Toshiba laptop is in… the shell is cracked in various places, about 30% of the keys are missing, the paint has rubbed off where I place my fingers, the clicker buttons are stuck, the speakers don’t work, they just buzz, and the headphone jack is jacked, so I have to run a usb cable to an Alesis powered mixer, out to an old Technics receiver, then out to a pair of bookshelf speakers! My laptop is so grody and so embarrassing! I have to use a usb keyboard to operate it. And its old and slow so I can’t even play Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 on it. lol. Oh, and if I win the iMac then I can be cool like my Mac friends. I just have to win it! Just have to! Thanks for the opportunity. ๐Ÿ˜€

    3 days to go! Awesome contest! I’m going to be out of town for 9 months or more at a cooking academy and I can’t take my laptop with me – The top is cracked and it won’t close. The clickers are stuck and most of the keys missing, so I use an external usb mouse and keyboard. The speakers and speaker jack are busted, so I have it hooked up to a usb audio mixer then to an old stereo receiver and then to a set of bookshelf speakers. Its just so awful and embarrassing, however, I am thankful that I am able to use it. I can’t afford a new laptop, so winning the iMac would be so awesome! Thank you for the great giveaway opportunity. Good luck everyone! ๐Ÿ˜€
