And the day was saved…

Kate and her friend arrived home after school and we got them all set up to take over the living room for Sleepover Extravaganza 2007. Furniture was moved, sleeping bags unrolled, Nintendo DSes were plugged in. I braced her for the bad news.

“I have some bad news…” I said.
“You weren’t able to get the guitars from Ray?” Kate guessed.
“Worse,” I said.
Stricken, Kate gasped, “BUNNIES?!!” (Poor kid, two hamsters deaths have scarred her…)
“No, no, not that bad!” I reassured her. “I wouldn’t break news about your bunnies like this!” *sheesh*

I let her know that by “worse” I meant there was no Xbox at all… which meant no games or DVDs for the sleepover. Disappointing but not earth-shattering.

Meanwhile, people had been following along on my blog, where I’d vented about the situation a couple of hours earlier. After reading my tale of Xbox woe yesterday, mysticalforest kindly offered up the use of his 360 in the comments of my LJ! Not only that but he was kind enough to drive up to my house and hand deliver it. I was soon able to share the happy news with the girls and Sleepover Extravaganza 2007 was saved! Games were played, movies were watched, pizza ordered, popcorn popped. Bunnies frolicked, girls and parents were happy. When the replacement machine was plugged in and booted up, Kate said, “He even uses the same icon I do!” Big Hero Points to mysticalforest for saving the day.

The girls are crashed out on the living room floor now and I expect they stayed up pretty late. They were still going strong playing Animal Crossing when I went to bed. At some point during the night they pulled chairs up to my computer and were watching Code Monkey videos on YouTube (because that was what was on the screen when I got up this morning). I’ve been puttering around trying not to be too noisy but I’ve been up for two hours already and I’m starting to get hungry and want coffee. When the girls arise I’ll probably bust out the recipe for pumpkin pancakes and make bacon.

  • Man, mysticalforest totally saved the day! I remember those sleepovers as a girl, and if one thing went wrong it was THE END OF THE WORLD!!!!

    On a personal note, the first time I saw Dirty Dancing was at a sleepover. We were all about 13, and we watched it at least three times that night. Patrick Swazye was so gorgeous! Tee hee!

    Anyway, glad your Xbox troubles worked out enough for Sleepover Extravaganza 2007 to be a success.
