Am I Evolving or Revolving, or Maybe Just Twisted?

Something has come over me. A strange, terrifying, yet exhilarating sensation. I'm starting to look at people differently. Friends and loved ones have noticed that I've developed a most annoying habit of invading their intimate space and making sniffing noises with my nose. Ummmm, the aroma makes my mouth water.

So what has happened to this geek?


It may have something to do with this:


It's understandable why I like roasting bloggers.

Pass the salt, please.

My BBFF (Best Blogging Friend Forever), Quirkyloon, has given me this special award. She made it from scratch (pun intended). I am very honored. In her post, she alluded that I may not really be a reforming geek. GASP! She explained that I am a running geek and that I am starting to have an unnatural relationship with a swimming pool. She's right. I actually watched a swimming video last week. Little did she know that the award would trigger the metamorphosis I'm experiencing.

Thank you, Quirky, you funny girl and juiciest loon of them all.


This next award was given to me by another crazy lady, Hit40 from Sane Without Drugs.


She may be more nuts than I am but that's debatable or maybe she is just delectable?

Are there brains in that cup? Please pass me that cream sauce, 'K?

Thank you, Hit40. I will be passing this one on to a few of the ladies that visit here often and leave tips although I think Hubby or Cat may have their hands in the tip jar. When I go there to get my lunch money, it's empty. Hum....

Anywhatsit, ladies, you have lovely blogs (and you smell good, too). Please enjoy your award:

Don't worry, guys. I'll find something for you one of these days!

But wait. There's more. I have to show you something that is making me smile. My friend gave me some cannas last fall and this one took mercy on me and actually bloomed, just this week. I'm thrilled!


And, no, I did not eat my friend.....yet.

Very nice flowers!! I also love it when a new plant blooms. Always good to know that I can keep something alive!!!

Quirkyloon said...

Oh my zombie!

Here I was awarding you and now you have been so generous in your UNgeeky way!

Thanks for the lovely blog award. Me and my zombies thank-you! *smilez*

Nice awards, you deserve them. Hey are you sure you wouldn't like to go on that bike ride?

mama-face said...

Whoa, wait a minute...I'm reading and I'm interested and I'm laughing cause not only do you swim, but you watch swimming videos. If swimming videos count as swimming then hand one over...but I digress...

so yeah, here I sit, reading like I said and what?! I come across and award for me. let me check...this mamaface, right? It would be somewhat embarrassing to find out it really is for a different mamaface, but I'll take it anyway I can get it. (That's what she said.)

THANK YOU from this mamaface. I will even link you back which unfortunately I did not realize is what I am supposed to do with awards until it was TOO LATE. tsk tsk I am such an ignoramus.

All three. Evolving, revolving and twisted ... you're all three and delightfully so. (wink)

@hit40 - Thanks. Yes. It's nice to see some color before everything turns brown again!

@Quirky - You're welcome. hehe.

@ettarose - Thanks. Maybe someday I'll do that ride!

@mama-face - Of course it's you! Enjoy! The swimming videos have actually helped!

@Marvin - Thanks. I resemble that!

Skye said...

Aw shucks Reffie, thanks :)

Nooter said...

humph. reading that first paragraph i thought you were going to say you came out of the closet and realized you are actually a pooch, but alas it was not meant to be.

also, isnt that cannabis plant against the law? youre gonna get in so much trouble...

ReformingGeek said...

@Skye - You are most welcome (getting out a fork....)

@Nooter - I'm just a pooch-eating, canna-smoking zombie. ;-)

Queen-Size funny bone said...

It's nice when something you plant actually comes back. Looks very nice and bright.

dana said...

Maybe that bush was stunted by all that snow you like. And, by the way, you're as twisted as cheap plastic wrap.

Deb said...

Cannabis? YOU? What next? Poppies?

ReformingGeek said...

@Queen-size - Thanks!

@Dana - Um, thanks. I think.

@Deb - I need poppy seeds for some muffins. ;-)

otin said...

Cannibas? Isn't that illegal? LOL! I love not getting awards! Thank you for not tagging me!!!! hehe!

Jean Knee said...

brains are good scrambled into eggs.

ReformingGeek said...

@otin - I'm going get something special for the guys. hehe

@jean - That's what I've having for lunch. Yum.

mama-face said...

Ha. I have an award for you at my place...you already have it, but you have everything.

It's not a re-gift either...It comes straight from my heart.

Lunatron (aka Jamie) said...

All this talk about eating and brains brings two words to mind... "Hello, Clarice."

ReformingGeek said...

@mama-face - Thanks!!!!

@Jamie - ;-)

Bee said...

Awesome! All your awards are well deserved!

♥georgie♥ said...

I LOVE cannas-pretty!

ReformingGeek said...

@Bee - Thanks!

@georgie - Me, too. Thanks!

VE said...

your friend gave you some cannabis??? Oh...that was cannas...never mind.

The Constant Complainer said...

RG, I swear that before reading this, I had never heard of a BBFF. LOL. Cool. I'm going to check out Quirky's post as we speak.

Skye said...

Ok Reffie, now I'm confused. Why did you pull out a fork?

Skye said...

Oh geez, ignore that last comment I posted! Zombies must have eaten part of my brain for me to not realize what you're talking about...lol. Mind if I join you to sup? :D

ReformingGeek said...

@VE - Maybe she did. I can't tell you everything, VE!

@Constant - Quirky is hilarious and a great writer. She was one of my first regular readers!

@Skye - Soup's on. Let's eat!
