Do Re Mi Mi Mi Mi...

Let me just clear my throat from that high note I was trying to hit in that title. I've been working on that high note all week and I finally hit it. After I put the broom away from sweeping up the broken wine glass, I'll get on with the post.

Uh ReformingGeek?


You're supposed to be doing a meme. There is no singing required.

Oh. I'm so embarrassed.

So it's been another exciting Saturday at the ReformingGeek household. Yep. I started off running a 5K and it just didn't stop from there. I am very proud to report that my driveway is now free of tree poop. This will last for about 5 minutes or until the next storm arrives so that's why I took a picture. This is what my driveway is supposed to look like:

I'm getting to the real post. Please be patient.

I love blog fodder. You can thank Quirky for this post. I even sent her money just like she said in her post.

Sweetie, the check's in the mail.

I have to list things that are just plain wrong but there is one that is oh so very, very WRONG.

Quirky was right. This was a fun meme.

1. I believe in the 5-second rule. If food falls on the floor and is picked up within 5 seconds, it's edible.

2. I will occasionally use fake flowers outside (Don't tell my neighbors.)

3. I put off dusting as long as possible. When the cat starts pawing his name on the mantle, I get it done.

4. I put off washing my car as long as possible. When Hubby writes "Wash Me or it's MINE" on my windows, I wash it.

5. Recently, I collected road kill from all the squished wild animals that I've seen while out running (coyote, rabbit, bobcat, domestic kitteh, dog, possum, raccoon, armadillo, Nooter) and made road-kill stew. I told my guests it was a new recipe for my famous Mexican stew.

6. I don't enjoy talking to my mom on the phone. That's right. May lightning strike me down.

DANG! I was just kidding. I didn't really want that to happen!

7. I have watched the last 3 episodes of Star Wars more than most sane people. Oh, wait. I'm not exactly sane so this is totally irrelevant.

That's all I have for now. That wasn't too bad, was it? Please feel free to sing this meme if you're in the mood.

Happy Easter and think nice thoughts about this little bunny. No bunny stew, OK folks?

Hahahhah. I'm not SURE but I think #5 is just wrong. I'm all for recycling and re-using, but...

Peek-a-boo bunny is soooo cute. Thanks for sparing it.

Anonymous said...

I don't think ANY of those are wrong. *smile*

Good job Reffie! Very funny and look at da widdle bunny! bad he's really a RAT in disguise!


ReformingGeek said...

@Marissa - You got it. I'm not sure I could stomach that kind of meal.

@Quirky - ;-) No wonder Cat was so curious about the "bunny".

Unknown said...

#5 DEFINITELY wrong!

Tracy Rambles On And On said...

Ok, note to self: DO NOT eat any kind of "special stew" if ever invited to Reforming Geeks house for dinner.
You know what's funny?
Before I had kids, I had a touch of OCD and if food even thought about hitting the floor, it was out.
Now, the rule in our house has changed from five seconds to five minutes as long as you blow it off first, you know to blow off any germs that it may have collected from sitting on the floor.
I don't eat these things myself but since my children seem to have been born with unusually small mouths and are always missing them and sending almost every.single.bite. of food to the floor, the five minute rule was adopted here at Rambling Acres.
I mean, seriously, if I made them throw out everything that hit the floor, I would be throwing out enough food to feed a small country!

Deb said...

Really? #5 is the wrong one? Damn. I thought for sure it was #1. What if your food dropped in cat pee? No way would I eat it after five seconds. Three maybe, but not five.

ReformingGeek said...

@dizzblnd - Yeah. I would never really do that.

@Tracy - Have you thought about selling your kiddos to the highest bidder?

@Deb - Cat pee? All bests are off!

Shawn said...

If #7 is wrong, I don't know what to say. If you could wear a hole in a DVD, I would have done it by now. Same goes for the OT.

Nooter said...

#1: i believe in the half second rule- give the human one half second to retrieve it then its mine.

and regarding #5, uhh, really? youd do that?

Chris said...

5 second rule ... uh oh ... I thought it was the '10 second rule'.

Lucky I haven't got sick. Actually, I'm feeling a little ill today.

ReformingGeek said...

@Shawn - Maybe there's other movies? I'm not so sure.

@Nooter - I would never hurt you, Nooter!

@Chris - I'll go longer. It depends. ;-)

Kirsten said...

I put off washing my car too! I think your husband lives in my neighborhood. He writes on my car too!

Jean Knee said...

I'm worse than you. I despise talking to my mom on the phone.

ReformingGeek said...

@Kirsten - I'll get on to him about that!

@Jean - I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Maureen said...

You must elaborate; by saying "the last three" episodes of Star Wars, do you mean Episodes 1, 2 and 3? Or the final three chronologically in the Star Wars Universe (ie. Ep. 4, 5 and 6?)

Oh wait. The answer doesn't really matter now, does it?

(This from a raging Star Wars geek herself. I mean who the hell else would ask such a question?)
