Cooking Up the Thursday Trio

It's that time again. It's time for ReformingGeek's roast. That's right. ReformingGeek, aka Wicked Paparazzi, has been in the kitchen again preparing dinner. Tonight you will dine on Deb, Marissa, and Marvel Goose eggs. Side dishes will include grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes.

While I was out looking for pictures of my meals, I got distracted by a little spring color:

Ah...nice bluebonnets, ReformingGeek. Now get back to the meal.

Sigh.

First in the oven today is Deb from Debbie Does Drivel. She has described herself as dark-headed with dark eyes frowned upon by skinhead neighbors. Obviously, her neighbors have been taken over by aliens just like most of the other folks in Maine. She is also in love with ME. No, not ME as in ReformingGeek, but ME as in the state of Maine. From wild and crazy sledding races to yaaaaachting to what to do during mud season, you'll enjoy her driveling yarns (yeah, the knitting kind). Ha! She also has a dog, Nutjob, that truly must be possessed.

Be careful if you are invited to dine with her as she serves up some very interesting "food" items. She doesn't like cats and I snapped a picture of Nutjob doing Mom's dirty work. I bet he got lots of treats as his reward.




Next up is Marissa from WhaHappen. She is the little sister I never had. She's a pretty lady with a tough-ass daughter in the military but you might want to avoid an elevator ride with her. Also, do not, I REPEAT, DO NOT call her a mail-order bride even if she is totally confused about what "race" she is. ;-) We all know she's a hot-blooded Americano, right? I caught this picture of her as she was hailing a cab in Los Angeles one day:


Now for some serious egg cooking. Would you prefer scrambled or over easy? Well, Marvel Goose over at the The Daily Egg can dish out goose eggs however you want them and I sure hope one of them is golden. His blog is very funny. He has a history in radio and a bow-tie fetish and if you were around in the 70's, you might have caught him streaking. Hum....

Unfortunately, he's been a bit water-logged lately due to flooding in the Deep South but we hope he comes up for air soon and can get back to his hilarious blog. In the meantime, I found some crazy eggs for us to poach in his honor:



I hope you enjoyed your meal. Please feed the tip jar on your way out.

We love Marissa. And the drivel. And the Goose. Good choices!

;-)

Quirkyloon said...

Deb is great! She should taste purdy good.

I'll have to check out the other two. Frankly, I'm scared to try new things, but on YOUR recommendation...Reffie...I'll give it a shot!

*laugh*

ReformingGeek said...

@georgie - Thanks. There are a few more areas around here that have bloomed and most people can take a better photo but I'm still trying!

I'll try to avoid that yellow snow!

@quirky - Yep. Deb didn't even need any salt. You will love the other two!

Nooter said...

nutjob is aces!

Bee said...

A hot blooded American woman? I will definitely check her out!

Marissa said...

Awww, thanks!! I'm touched to be your Lil Sis. (not in the incest way). You da best!

And I truly don't mind being Husband Jace's mail order bride. In fact, one Asian lady asked me where she could get a white husband just like him.

And for the record, I'm not preggers in that blue dress. Ummm, a little bloatation during that time of the month...

Sue said...

This is a great idea you had roasting blogs and you've kept it up for like what? three weeks in a row? Way to stay organized.
My ideas last for only one post.

ReformingGeek said...

@Nooter - Deb may not agree!

@Bee - Yeah. She's hot!

@Marissa - You look great in that blue dress!

@Sue - Thanks. I may do it one more week and then I'll have to study up on some blogs!

Deb said...

Holy cow sheep, RG! Thank you so much for the salt-free roast! Coming from you it really does mean a lot 'cause you know how many crazies there are on the interwebz these days...I don't think you are one of them!

Thank you all for the nice comments. It always amazes me that people I'm not related to actually read Drivel. In fact, the people I am related to do NOT read it. Heavy sigh...

Again, thanks RG! I am familiar with Daily Egg, but Whathappen is new to me - so I'm off like a prom dress to read both!

ReformingGeek said...

@Deb - You're welcome and you can keep your dress on!

LiLu said...

I love the pics you use here! Too funny :-)

Shawn said...

Not too familiar with the other two, but I recently started reading Marissa's stuff. It is the quality.

VE said...

I already stalk Deb on occasion (only when she's in the shower of course) and Marvel (most definitely NOT when he's in the shower...I'll leave that to the gals). I guess I'll have to check out Marissa now. She can find me in the tree in the backyard...either that or the gnomes have convinced me that is inappropriate behaviour...

Nice roast...

ReformingGeek said...

@Lilu - Thanks!

@Shawn - You'll enjoy it!

@VE - You are your gnomes are always up to something! Thanks!

ChrisTheAlco said...

Hey reformer ... just a quick one to let you know you're now on my blogroll ... hooray!

Jean Knee said...

those Blue Bonnets look pathetic, remember when Lady Bird Johnson used to plant seeds all along the highway and they were thick and lush?
you're old, I know you remember

ReformingGeek said...

@Chris - Thanks

@Jean - Ah, thanks, Jean. I needed that reminder today! ;-)

Elizabeth said...

I love the picture of the dog sitting on the cat. It's such a puppy thing to do! I think I'm going to make it my new screen saver!
