Update on Date Night

Well, Mom made it home, unfortunately finally.  Now, she interrupts my snuggle time with Dad but he is happy that she is home so I guess I am too.  Mom went to Boston for a very short trip and didn't get to do too many things because she was in meetings most of the time. She did have a few hours to go out and take some photos near her hotel and do a bit of window shopping.
She was excited when she got home to see how her photos turned out so after doing this, that, and the other thing she turned on the computer and uploaded her photos. She looked through them quickly and then wanted to see what comments you guys left on my blog. (We don't have a laptop so she didn't have computer access while in Boston) She opened the first post that went up while she was in Boston and started reading and *blip* the monitor went blank. Hmmm.....
The computer was still getting power but she noticed a funny smell.  Uh Oh!
After looking at different things (she doesn't really have a clue) she thinks maybe her motherboard went out.  This same thing happened last year (when the computer was still under warranty) and it is acting the same way. She talked to someone and they said it could be her hard drive if it smelled like something was hot. Either way, our computer is 5+ years old and she said it will probably cost just as much to fix the old one as it will to buy a new one. Any computer nerds out there have any ideas? 
We are borrowing Uncle David's laptop right now. Mom says we don't have the green papers to fix the computer right now and will have to start saving. 
She told me we would have to postpone Date Night.....OMD! I begged and pleaded for her not to do that.
How can she say no to that?
She said we shouldn't put a bunch of junk on Uncle D's computer and she doesn't have access to all my pics
(lesson learned).
I did more begging and pleading and told her to look at all the pups and kitkats hearts she would be breaking. Well.....she decided.....
not to postpone Date Night! Whew! That was close!
So here are the couples we have attending Date Night:
Twix and Hero
Mayzie and Booker and Mack
Brutus and Stella (need her blog address)
Riley and Tessa and Madi
Thunder and Kat (need her address)
Riley and Stella

The following were mentioned in a comment but said they didn't know yet if their date was available.  Please let me know if you are attending:
Mona and Tiger (need his address)
Twinkie and Gunther (need his address)

Captain (M)
Star (F)
Mia (F)
Phantom (M)
Ciara (F)
 Mochi (F)
Abby (F)
El'bow (M)
Hauwii (M)
Santa (F) 
Minnie (F)
Rufus (M)
Indie (F)
Alven (M)
Dottie (F)
Khyra (F)
Puddles (F)
Winnie (F)
Lilly (F)
Lilibell  (F)
Mesa (F)

Please let me know if I am missing anyone, or if I have listed your sex wrong (I did it from memory).
Several of you have siblings that were not listed as coming on your comments....please let me know if any of them want to come that are not on the list.
Take some time and visit each other's blogs and see if you find a new furiend that you might be interested in taking on a date! I have a few ideas of some cute couplese but I will let you take a stab at it first! 
I have lots of new followers lately and I hope you all enjoy your time visiting here.  Because Mom was out of town, our computer troubles, and getting ready for Date Night, I might not make it around to visit you for a bit. Please be patient with me.

Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match!

Just kidding. Indy is a confirmed bachelor and far too set in his ways to change. It will be fun to hear all about it, though. And good luck with the computer!

houndstooth said...

Oh, I hate when computer problems happen! That is just the worst! I'm sure there's a reason they call it a cat-astrophe! Good luck on getting it fixed and I'm glad you'll still get to have date night!


The OP Pack said...

Twix, you and your Mom are so sweet to go to all this work for Date Night. Thunder's girl Kat is here http://stevekatwilbur.blogspot.com/

We wish we were better at things like photoshop so we could help too, but Mom has no clue.

We are sorry to hear about your computer and hope you can get it fixed without it being too costly.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Nadine said...

Hey, your Mom was up in our area....we live like only 45 minutes away from Boston!

Darn compooter, that was nice of your Uncle D to let you guys borrow his laptop!

I'm looking forward to Date Night, even though I'll be attending single - I'm a bit too shy to ask anyone. And Chewy will be staying home with his girlfriend Sally Jean that night.

Chi kisses, Lilibell

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Oh no!

Just reading the post made my mom start to twitch!

I don't know if my boyfuriends khan make it so I might have to be a designated driver!


Anonymous said...

Wow, Twix! That was some Most Pawsome begging on your part. But of course we all woulda understood if it had to be put off. Once again, I just want you and your mom to know how very nice we all think you are for hosting date night. Cuz, um, things could get rowdy and all.

Most of the nerds I know say Dell is best of the worst. Cuz they can be stupid sometimes. I always get the plan where they send out a guy in a day or two with a new hard drive or MB, or whatever. It's worth it to me cuz I don't know how to instal those things myself. Yet anyway.
Upgrade to the Ubuntu OS, it rocks.

JD and Max said...

Hi Miss Twix,

Hey, it's a pleasure to meet you! We did a post declaring our love for our blog sweetheart the other day and lots of our bloggie pals asked if we would be escorting her to your date night. Well, we eagerly scampered on over here to meet you and check it all out! We hope we're not too late - can we please bring her along? We've also sent you an e-mail with a link to some photos!

Sorry to hear about your 'pooter box trouble - those box thingies are always a pain we think. Our huamns are addicted to their box thingies - the ones they tap at, the ones they sit in front of and stare in a glazed fashion into, the ones they talk into, the ones that they point at us that flash....and the list goes on!!

Well, it's been great to meet you - we can't wait to follow all your adventures!

Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

Mom knows all about computer problems- she thinks the best way to solve them is with a sledgehammer!!!! Once she threatens hers with that, it sudenly wants to workagain!!!

Ginger wants to have TWO dates- Baxter from Kalyxcornucopia, and Oskar from luvmydachshunds.blogspot.com. Chip and Thai want to escort Xena and Shactzi from the same site- they are Oskar's sisters- SSSSSH- the three of them want it to be a surprise, like a blind date

Twinkietinydog said...

No worries, Twix, I'm busy myself and I'm remiss and miss visiting all my furiends every single day. As for your date night, I'm embarrassed. I even asked Gunther to ask me. How low do I stoop? I'll just make a note to notify my furiends of your event for now.

Sandra said...

Dear Twix, I do not believe I have had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Twinkie. As you know I am a lover of all ladies and would of course be more than willing to take Twinkie out for a nice time out on the town.


Stella, Gunther and Betty said...

ocmist said...

Oh, Twix... Grammy thinks you were just TOO adorable and can understand why your Mom couldn't resist your begging! She also can't see how in the world you are going to have time to get everyone's pictures up and running with being gone and the computer messing up.

You guys are just so sweet for hosting such an awesome event! BG and Dott can hardly wait! The CCC

Dory and the Mama said...
