Firstly you need to make sure you push the right buttons and turn it on. If it's not turned on, it's not gonna work for you.
Now you need to wait for it's load on you. It'll be nice and warm on your lap, so take it all whilst it's loaded up.
Now is the time to start fiddling with it, make sure you hit all right keys so it plays ball. Soon it'll be your turn to load up on it.
Once you've hit all the buttons you want to and need then it's time for you to play.
Go ahead and play with it all you like, get carried away and let it jump up and down on your lap as you get more and more excited whilst playing with it.
