Should we or shouldn't we??

You know what I am talking about, don't you?  The Purformance Review!  Neither of us really wanted to do it so we drew straws and I, Stella, LOST!  So this Perfornace Review is brought to you by Ali Zophia, the cat!

First of all we are giving our person a bit of a break.  Our computer was on the fritz for a few months, THEN we finally got it fixed and now it has a whole new set of problems.  Our person, our Mom, is going to go visit our ISP Monday and attempt to get things straight.  Then when that happens we can enjoy being better bloggers (I hope!)

So here goes:

#1  We only blog about once a week now, we used to do better but it is just too much of a pain with the 'puter the way it is.  So we will give One Paw for that and an E for Effort.

#2  Its difficult for a cat to judge on creativity, etc., because innately cats are much more creative than humans or heh! dogs.  I suppose we will have to give her two paws on that one.

#3 Yes, she does provide ways to contact us, but  if it were up to me, Ali Z, I'd just say please find some other meaningful thing to do for yourself.  All three of us are busy.  One paw here.

#4.  No we really don't have time for social events much although Stella said she had a good time at Clooney's for Christmas, (ah, courtesy of Bertie dumping her at the airport in Aberdeen!)  Stella says I am supposed to tell you this weekend is Bertie's birthday.  So?  One Paw here.

#5  Are our friends contented with what they see on our blog?>>   I used to get a lot of mail before I retired as an Advice Giver but I have no idea what people think of our blog now that I am not on it anymore.  We average maybe 25 letters with each post but Phantom and the OP gang get 65 or more letters when TD burps!   Two paws here.

#6  Overall rating and suggestions for Improvement:  My main suggestion for improvement would come in the form of a NEW COMPUTER!!!  Are ya listenin', Santa!
Our average score is 1.4  with one E for Effort.

On behalf of our Mum Jo, Stella, my dog, and me Ali Z the cat,  I say Meow meow for now and see you next time.

And I says dat you deserve a great big....A+ for blogging at all on a bum computer. Dat has to be da pits. I enjoys your bloggy.


AC said...

Oh my, Ali Z, I think it may be a good thing that you retired your blog duties or I would have too many belly aches from laughing...

On second thought...

You should rejoin the blog effort but refocus...no more advise column...start a workout column. No seriously. You just do your thing. Write whatever. Readers will laugh themselves silly, giving themselves an ab workout. Now...then you start charging because no workout programs are free...then BAM, you've got enough green papers for a new computer!

Puter problems stink like a dead Squirrel.

You did an excellent job of ... evaluating.. HER.

We DO miss you a LOT. I'm just sayin.

Lorenza said...

I know your Mom does her best... even with a not so cooperative computer!
I would give her the best ratings!
Happy Weekend to all of you!
Kisses and hugs

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Well, woo are a khat - that should have given her some pity points right off the bat ;-)

Happy weekend to you Stella!
Paws crossed for your computer troubles to go away!

Ali Z, Stella and Jo,
Well Gail wanted to give you a great big A* all round. I hesitated at first, given the Inverness Airport/Clooney business. Harsh words were said. But Gail is reminding me that forgiveness is a great virtue, and I am in magnanimous mood after all those birthday celebrations. The fact that I received this lovely hedgehog from Minnesota in the mail yesterday has not influenced my grading on iota!

Toodle pip!

PS We are just going to pop over to Asta's to check that things are not out of control...

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Aww, Ali Z., you are a little tough on yourselves. She does a great job, we love her visits to our blog, and you always have interesting things to share. And the music alone is worth the visit. We also enjoy the blogs that you point us too, usually ones new to us and very good too.

TD isn't sure if he should be proud or offended, but we often wonder too how we get so many visitors some days.

Hope you can get the computer back up and running well.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

I'd be afraid to let AZ review me. I toyed with the idea of doing this review, but Fudge insisted he would handle it and I knew what the results of that would be.

KB said...

Ali Z - You are way too tough on your mom, and that's all that i have to say on the matter.

I agree with our friend AC that you are very funny, and should write posts more often.

TD burping is *very* interesting, don't you think?

♥I am Holly♥ said...

I love the review. It is funny and made me laugh! We love your blog and think you get 4 PLUS!! I wouldn't let Holly or the kitties do one on me! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Ali Z, blame the computer not mom! Your blog is witty, has GREAT music and shares fun adventures! We love checking in with you every day, and are very excited when there is a new post. And we always enjoy when you stop by our blog.

Rudy - The dog with a blog said...

What a wonderful review,

Al - Rudy's Brother

Z cat, I know that you cats can be a bit critical, but I think you was a bit harsh on your Mom. She be a lovely Mom to you both and tries hard and we know that the feelings is there and that the most impawtent! Plus she always very nice whenever I get in an argument with Mum and gives me good advice.

We love to read this blog and have never found a dull moment! One time my cat, Bubbles, fell asleep while I was reading it to her but that's cuz she's a snoozer. She fell asleep eating one day so that should tell you something. We give it 16 paws up cuz we have 3 dogs and a cat. We think she's raising all 4 paws cuz she's upside down with her legs stretched up...is that SNORING?????
