Geek in the Kitchen: Winners Announced!

I know you have been anxiously waiting for me to announce the winners of the Geek Fudge and Rum Balls Lottery. First, I have a wonderful, life-changing opportunity I'd like to share with you.....

Just kidding.

As expected you guys were very creative and a bit naughty with some of your lyrics. Here are a few of my favorites:

I saw Mommy rubbing Santa Claus
Underneath the red velour last night.


I saw Lecter eating Santa Claus
With fava beans and chianti chilled just right.

i saw reffie with her warm rum balls
doing 'the hustle' on the countertop last night

OK. OK. I'm getting to the winners. I'm sorry to say that Cat, as usual, was not up to his simple assignment of selecting three winners from the bag of entries. I even put the mouse in the bag to get his attention. But then he decided that chasing things outside was more desirable and whined to have the door opened for him. (He said something about the lack of opposable thumbs.)

Since I'm the door slave around here, I got up to let him out. When I got back, I asked
Cowboy Santa to do the honors.

Um, wait. Where IS that mouse?

Huh. Well. Maybe it will turn up later.

Hearing screams from the kitchen**

Oh, there it is.

"Sorry, Hon. Can you get that for me?"

"You can just put it outside, 'K?"

"You might want to get down off the chair first."

What a guy. So *brave.

Let's get back to
Cowboy Santa. Get ready. He's going in!

And the winners are:

QuirkyLoon from Musings of a QuirkyLoon
Marvin from The Old Silly's Free Spirit Blog
Nooter from Nooter the Dog

! Please email me at at with your address and tell me if you want fudge, rum balls, or both. Thanks to everyone for re-writing those lyrics. All of you did a great job!

P.S. Just to make it more clear: The entries themselves were not judged. Cowboy Santa, in place of Cat, pulled the winning names out of the bag (e.g. luck of the draw)!

*ReformingGeek Hubby is actually very brave, ridding our home of any and all pests. Occasionally, I ask if Cat can come back in, though.

Teehee. I loved the selection! Can you reprint the winning entries, or were they already in your list?

Marvin D Wilson said...

"Yay! I WON! I actually WON something," shouted The Old Silly in a state of Holidazed ecstasy.

Lots of great entries. Hey but I'm with UberGrumpy - I wanna see the other two winning entries, too!

As for the selection ... Rum Balls. Definitely Rum Balls. I'll email ya. Tanks, RG - ya da best, GF!

I never realized rum had balls

ReformingGeek said...

All: The entries themselves were not judged. Cowboy Santa, in place of Cat, pulled them out of the bag!

@Jean - Yeah, I thought it was a feminine drink.

Chris said...

Damn. Damn, damn, damn.

AND... I noticed that mine didn't even warrant a honorable mention.



*fudge please*

hee hee

Bee said...

Those were some great entries and bwahahaha to jean knee's comment!

When Pigs Fly said...

Just stopped by from the Constant Complainer. Rum balls sound yummy!

honeypiehorse said...

I'm very sad not to get fudge.

ReformingGeek said...

@Knucklehead - Would you like me to slap Cowboy Santa upside the head?

@Quirky - Yeah, a little fudge cures all hurts.

@Bee - Yeah. She's a hoot!

@When Pigs Fly - Thanks. Please come back anytime.

@Honeypiehorse - As sweet and sticky as you name is, I guess it wasn't sticky enough for Cowboy Santa's hand. ;-(

Lest I seem ungrateful, THANK-YOU!

Can't wait for the fudge.
Here comes the fudge.
Here comes the fudge.


Nooter said...

the following conversation was overheard recently by a little spider that lives in a heat vent in one particular household:

nooter: hooray! fudge!

the human: You can't have fudge Nooter, it's bad for dogs.

nooter: but she said i could have some...

the human: No, Nooter.

nooter: but...

the human: NO Nooter! Why don't you try the rum balls instead?

nooter: rum balls?

the human: Yes, rum balls.

nooter: whats a rum?

the human: What do you mean?

nooter: did it hurt?

the human: Did what hurt?

nooter: did it hurt when she cut the balls off the rum? what kind of animal is that anyway? are they big and salty? how many can i have?

the human: (holding head in hands)

Unknown said...

The cat no win? He won't like that.

Deb said...

Yay! Congrats to the winners! I want to see Nooter deal with the rum balls, though.

ReformingGeek said...

@Nooter - Poor Nooter. It's OK. No rums were harmed. It's a painless process.

@Chris - The cat will get over it. ;-)

@Deb - Yeah, poor Nooter. He's really struggling.

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

I'll take both rum balls and fudge, thank you. Quirky said she didn't want hers. She's on a diet or a diabetic or something, so I stepped in to take the bullet for her.

ReformingGeek said...

@MikeWJ - Quirky called. She said you have already had too many mornings so this one will be your last. ;-)

Me-Me King said...

Dang it!!! I wanted your fudge. Oh, well, better luck next time.

Quirky, I'm just across town from you, gonna share?

Mama-Face said...

I thought these were the best without choosing out of a hat. Must be karma.

Hey, with the Circle of Friends award I recently bestowed upon you it requires you to list 5 of your favorite things; which I FORGOT to do myself. dumdum. So, don't forget. I know you're excited about it. :)

Skye said...

Congrats you guys!

From the entries I read it would have been rather hard going judging them Reffie. Great idea to have Cowboy Santa pick the names out of a bag.

Oh yeah, thanks for the warm welcome back :)

ReformingGeek said...

@Me-me - I don't think Quirky is the sharing type. She may send a zombie your way. ;-)

@mama-face - Uh oh. Five things? I''m in trouble.

@Skye - Cowboy Santa is good in a pinch!

Leeuna said...

Ooooo. Now I get all those adages like: "you snooze, you lose" and "You've got to be init to winit."

Now I'm fudgeless and rum balless cuz I didn't keep up with all the goings-on over here. Just dang!!! Maybe next time.

Oh, and congrats to the winners.

Marvin D Wilson said...

Speaking of winning, stop by my blog today, RG. Got a little surprise for YOU!

Hahahha...those are hilarious!

ReformingGeek said...

@Leeuna - Dang. Sorry you missed out!

@Marvin - I'm on my way! Can't wait!

@Jacki - I knew I could count on them to amuse us.
