Death of an Igloo and a Meme!

The big snow event is over and most of it has melted.  Unfortunately, it's melting into pockets of slick ick on the streets in the morning.    There is a reason I live in Texas and this isn't it.  You got that Mother Nature?

I must show you what I made playing in the snow:

Reffie made this.  She is so silly.  She forgot the housewarming gift.   I was expecting a mouse or at least a squirrel.  Sheesh!

It's all melted now so Igloo must rest in peace. After power outages, mud swamps, and tree limbs down, we don't want to see that much snow ever again.

On a much more exciting note,  I'm having a bit of fun today.  My BBFF Quirky said I was good at following her.  Hee Hee.  Of course I am.  Evil Twin even has a few restraining orders to stay away from certain celebrities.

Oh.  I get it.  I'm a "follower" of her blog.  I remember now.  I clicked the little button on her sidebar one day and now my mugshot appears on the sidebar when I visit her blog.    Also, I read her posts and I spout off witty comments.  Ok.  Ok.  I leave words in the form of sometimes complete sentences and call them comments.

All of this hard work has earned me some kind of "following" award and now I have to answer questions.

Hee Hee.  I love to trash memes.

I'm supposed to answer about 40 questions and add one of my own.  Since I'm terrible at following directions and I'm feeling incredibly lazy, I will give you ten questions that may or may not have come from the list Quirky gave me:

1.  What are you wearing?
Seriously? Sigh.  I'm wearing out my dishwasher by using it every day.   

2. What's for dinner?
Roadkill stew.

3.  What's the last thing you bought?
Oceanfront property in Arizona.  Wait. That's where Quirky lives.  Wow!  I'll be close to her.

4.  What do you consider to be a fashion faux pas?:  Men wearing white socks with black shoes and shorts.  Speedos on anybody except Michael Phelps.  Or maybe Matt Damon.   Paisley.    Certainly not furry hats.

5.  A word that you say a lot:  Blog

6.  A big word you say a lot:  BLOG

7.  A word longer than three syllables that you use and know the meaning without looking in the dictionary:  Duplicative

8.  If I came to your house right now, what would you do to me?
Yippee!  I like this one.  First, I would hug you.  Depending on the condition of my yard, you are welcome to swim, sled, or make mud angels.  I'll be in the kitchen preparing us a feast of Mexican food and Texas Sheet Cake for dessert.

9.  What do you when you are low or depressed?   
Smile and count my blessings while pushing Evil Twin out of the upstairs window.

10.  What are you listening to right now?  A pin drop.  Wait.  Cat is snoring.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

 We earned these beads the "normal" way.  We are so pathetic!

And I like that cat igloo. All cats should have an igloo. Let's send them all to the NORTH POLE! Except your cat, of course.

And please don't kill Evil Twin. I have a soft spot for her in my heart. Hey! She won't eat it or anything like that will she?

Anyhowser, thank you so much for the shout-outs!

You rawk with or without me! HA!

Mama-Face said...

You rock any meme. Although I don't know what Quirky is thinking. I'm her best follower. I will have to take that up with her.

I'm coming to your house NOW. I need a hug.

MrsBlogAlot said...

Nice job! I love that you have the ability to push evil twin out the window when needed(-:

ReformingGeek said...

@Quirky - Ok. Ok. I'll savage Evil Twin.

@mama-face - Thanks. Please stop by soon!

@Mrsblogalot - Thanks. I wish it really were that easy!

Unknown said...

Ok, I'm getting in here!I need a hug too!
I'm sorry you got all our snow. But we do have some now so I hope Mother Nature won't bug you for awhile.
Awesome kitty igloo. Great job on the meme. They're always much better when personalized! (((HUGS)))

Unknown said...

Snow in texas...get out!!!! cute igloo tho'

Nooter said...

ive got some beads for kitty - its a choker

ReformingGeek said...

@Collette - Thanks. Come on over. I still have plenty of hugs!

@Georgie - Thanks. I don't want to see that kind of snow here for a long, long time!

@Nooter - That is if you don't eat them first.

I don't know why I'm on this blog but I had a fun time.

You are a metablogger: someone for whom blogging is part of your human essence.

Blog on. :)

Deb said...

You're a "metablogger"? You poor thing. I hope it isn't painful.

BTW, how does one earn beads the "normal" way?

ReformingGeek said...

@M.J. Thanks....I think.

@Deb - I seem to have a headache. I wonder if that's a symptom. As for earning beads, raise shirt, show boobs. ;-)

Excellent little igloo. Should have been lowered down in Spinal Tap instead of Stonehenge. Also, your big word you use a lot cracked me up. Can I come down and make a mud angel? Then the sound you hear can be the giant sucking-sound my ass makes when I get up for my hug.

K A B L O O E Y said...

Gee, I never metablogger. Get it? Met a blogger? Get it??

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

A big congrats to you!!! Gotta love these award meme thingies!

As for winter, yeah, I don't love it either, but I live in the Great White North, so don't have much of a choice.

By the way, do you have any extra space at your place?

ReformingGeek said...

@Kablooey - You are just too much. You are welcome to come make a mud angel. Please don't sit on Cat.

@Mary - Thanks. There's a reason they call it the Great WHITE north. Brrrr. There is plenty of room here once I kick Cat out of his bedroom. Come on down.

Girl, that hat is you!

Marvin D Wilson said...

SOOOO typically Reffie with the cutesy, clever and evasive meme answers, lol. Loved it. :)

ReformingGeek said...

@honeypie - Of course!

@marvin - Thanks. Vague is my middle name. ;-)

Jean Knee said...

we had no snow

Mike said...

I guess number eight would depend on who was asking the question! LOL!

Nice igloo!

The Constant Complainer said...

I liked the cat's snow-quarters.

And when I'm depressed, I run on the treadmill. Because I'd eat if I didn't...

ReformingGeek said...

@Jean - You were welcome to some of ours!

@Otin - Thanks. I'm glad you didn't say "Nice Igloos!"

@Constant - Thanks. Yeah, running helps. I still eat. ;-)

what's a little snow to you stalwart Texans. We wimpy Floridians can't handle anything under 75 degrees. I like your wacky style so I signed up to follow you. Stop by my place and have a Margarita...very chilled.

Tgoette said...

Thanks for the tip on #4. I'm going to have to make some fashion changes I guess. I thought I was rockin' a cool look with the the black shoes, white socks, Speedo and fur hat, but I guess the world isn't ready for it just yet.

Anonymous said...

Wait....I can't tell....are you keeping your sense of humor in that weather, or am I finally using up my last brain cell before being disconnected from the internet for a week. mama? hold me....

ReformingGeek said...

@Boomer - Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I'll take a margarita.

@Tgoette - Sorry to burst your bubble!

@Dana - Life is always funny, Dana. Hang in there.

United Studies said...

Hahha...I LOVE this! Hilarious answers. You gotta send me a recipe for Texas Sheet Cake.

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

Oh, my goodness, you're hilarious!!! I checked this site out because I LOVED the title, then I got here and laughed some more! Thanks!

I'm so glad I stopped by, I'm your newest follower! Cheers!

ReformingGeek said...

@Jacki - I will look up the recipe!

@Anything Fits... - Thanks and welcome to the craziness!

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

Congrats! And what's Texas Sheet Cake? I think I might want some. Unless "Sheet" is a Texan way of saying something less appetizing. Then I don't want any.

"1.00s, 1.50s, 1.75s for the short arms. If you know what I'm talking about, you're probably old, too."
