Badges, Beer, and Beef?

First of all, recently roasted bloggers Shawn and Meg are welcome to pick up their badge of honor to display on their blog. Seasoning packets are extra, though.


Next, we had a serious round of storms roll through last night and I again need you guys to get over here and sweep the tree poop from my drive and pick-up my yard:



It's worse than it looks but at least we didn't lose any trees and we missed the tornado 2 miles to the north.


I was trying to heat dinner at the time and that was quite a challenge as the power couldn't decide between on or off. I looked out the window a few times and I swear I saw Dorothy, Toto, and a few tortoises fly across the yard.

You guys can do the clean-up while I go part with hard-earned money to get myself prettied-up at the hairstylist (a girl can TRY!) My roots are showing and afterall, I have to get ready for company next week*.

There is beer in the garage fridge. After you've finished picking up the mess, help yourself but make sure there is at least ONE left when I return home this afternoon.


Now for the beef.

My mom lives on a court and there is one house that is always changing inhabitants. It's rental property and former inhabitants have been taken away to jail but most usually just move out in the middle of the night. Recently, a new crop of weirdos moved into this house. My mom's neighbor is a blue-haired LOL and she keeps an eye on things although it's hard to miss the noise from the souped-up trucks that have been stopping by at all hours.

According to my mom's blue-haired neighbor, big white boxes that look like coffins are leaving the house and being loaded into the trucks. Blue Hair met the new folks and inquired about the "activity". She was told "we deal in meat". Um....WHAT KIND OF MEAT? That would be my question.

My guess is that the zombies are in control of the human-looking occupants. This is obviously a breeding ground for the zombies and once a zombie is ready to be released into society they are boxed up and sold to the highest bidder. Watch out folks. They are slowly infiltrating our society.

Any other ideas?

*I hope to see everyone here on Monday for a tour of Cowtown and we will venture down south for a road trip that includes........ Wait. I can't tell you that. For more information about the tour and its exciting destinations, click here.

I'm thinking zombies. Yep. Pretty sure. Zombies.

Hey RF - I'm shouting your blog out tomorrow on my "Following Friday Blogs" weekly feature. :)

Quirkyloon said...

The zombies strike again. It was just a matter of time!

Heh heh

Jacki said...

Ummm....dealing in meat? Is that some new term for drugs or something?

Nooter said...

so guess that storm scared the sh*t outa those trees huh?

what is it with the 'leave one beer in the fridge' thing? is that some kind of superstition or something? last time i was in there i left a half beer for the human you woulda thought the world was coming to an end, sheesh.

your mom lives in a court, is she judge judy?

do you know what the zombies ebay username is? id like to bid on some of thet fresh meat. do you think its pork chops? oh i hope it is...

SplitRock Dozer said...

Maybe they deal in the black market organ trade? Dont drink any punch they bring to the block party.

Sorry tree poop! Those trees are old enough to know better.

ReformingGeek said...

@Marvin - Yeah. It's has to be them and I'll sure check out your blog tomorrow!

@Quirky - There is no escape.

@Jacki - Beats me. I am very curious, though.

@Nooter - Beer isn't good for you, Pup. Sorry, I don't have any more information for you. Stay away from Ebay. You'll spend too much.

@SplitRock - Unfortunately, I did think of that. Maybe Blue Hair should look for delivery of a few extra freezers?

Shawn said...

No seasoning packets? Oh well, I probably was just going to use salt anyway.

Sue said...

You better go get your mom before they turn her into a zombie. Is there anyway the blue hair can get a look at those shipping labels so we know where the zombies are going? Maybe we can redirect them to Washington D.C. ;-)

ReformingGeek said...

@Shawn - I'll have to work on a seasoning packet. Salt will have to do.

@Sue - Yeah. She's supposed to "call me back" today but I have not heard from her yet...... Zombies in D.C. might be better than what we've got now...

Deb said...

Soylent green. Yummmm. That LOL better hope they don't have her for dinner some night along with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Maureen said...

Yikes... "meat?" Really?

Maybe THAT'S where "mystery meat" comes from!

mama-face said...

once i figured out that lol meant little old lady and not the usual i really got into this.

But meat? that is just plain old creepy. I'm glad your mom has one of those neighbors who keeps tabs on everybody. Mrs Kravitz?

ReformingGeek said...

@Deb - Yeah. Good thing my mom checks up on Blue Hair.

@Maureen - Sounds "fishy" to me.

@mama-face - Yeah. Blue Hair comes in handy and she's really sweet!

dizzblnd said...

I am so glad the tornado's missed you!

I think they are Zombies! My daughter is getting the Zombie Survival guide.. I will check to see if it mentions white "meat" boxes

Kirsten said...

You're so right! It must be zombies. Watch out, we had some zombie dealers in our neighborhood, but they were busted for drugs (of all things) and haven't returned. Weird

ReformingGeek said...

@dizzblnd - Great. Let me know what she finds out.

@Kirsten - Huh. Go figure.

Hit 40 said...

For heavens sake people...

If they were really selling meat, they would have asked if she would like to buy some!!!! DAH!!!

CALL THE FUCKING COPS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!! AND GET THE OLD FOLKS A CELL PHONE IN CASE THEY CUT THEIR PHONE WIRES.

VE said...

Tornados? I recommend dropping the house down 40 feet into the ground, blacktopping over the entire thing. You can get in and out through the manhole. It's the only way to be safe.

ReformingGeek said...

@Hit 40 - Yeah. Guido is in charge over there so who knows what's in those coffins.

@VE - I think it's funny that don't build houses here with basements or at least a tornado shelter!

Jean Knee said...

we lived in a rented house once. I told hub the next door neighbor looked like a drug guy. He lectured me on not judging a book by its cover da da da.

The next day he asked hub if he wanted to go get high


ha

dana said...

Watch THE BLURBS starring Tom Hanks and all your questions will be answered.

It's a shame, but you really don't ever know what's going on in rentals, and even cars aren't safe anymore since there's such a thing a "traveling meth labs" on wheels.

I hope Blue Hair doesn't come up missing.

dana said...

I meant: THE BURBS, not the blurbs

ReformingGeek said...

@Jean - Hubs should listen to you!

@Dana - No kidding. Hopefully, she'll stay in.

otin said...

It is amazing how many times the word Zombie shows up in blogland!

Bee said...

I have the same problem regarding the tree poop. I sweep it up. It rains again. I sweep it up again it rains again. I set it on fire... uh never mind.

Machinist said...

Sue said,"Maybe we can redirect them to Washington D.C. "

I think they would starve there. Don't they eat brains?

ReformingGeek said...

@otin - We're easily amused.

@Bee - Put the matches down and go take your meds.

@Machinist - Good point.

Hit 40 said...

Too funny! This post was great. I love the comments. Did they every ask if you would like to buy some "meat"?
