Evil Geek Top Five!

Finally, my brain has recovered enough from the zombie poem and boomer brain fog that I'm able to accept a blog award and decipher the instructions. Collete, from My Babcia's Babushka gave me this award:

I love it. You know I like hats and cats and yes, I know that's not a cat! I wonder if I the award could be altered to show this dog on the leash:

I eat small yappy dogs in one gulp.

I just LUV that big puppy.

OK. OK. Moving on....

The instructions are to list five obsessions and to pass the award to five bloggers. As with most blog awards, I don't exactly follow the instructions.

Evil Twin enters the room and bumps ReformingGeek off the couch and takes over the grey lap beast. She starts typing:

My Five Favorite Things
by ReformingGeek's Evil Twin

1. Beating up on ReformingGeek: That's right. Along with guilt trips, it's me that makes her run all the races and swim all those laps. She did a race last Saturday, a 10K, finishing with a 9:03 mile pace. She needs to run faster and get that time down under 9:00 minutes for the 10K. I'm kicking her butt in gear next week.

2. Smacking rude and/or snotty people with the backside of my hand: ReformingGeek has a big heart is too nice sometimes but every once in awhile, I get in there and make her lose it. Hehe. Then she feels bad. See #1.

3. Selling parts of ReformingGeek's body to science for money: Silly girl. She continues to look for her missing kidney.

4. Digging large holes to hide the bodies: Well, somebody has got to do it. "We" don't want to go to jail, right?

5. Working on the landing pad for the aliens: Each time they take me, they ask for a progress report. I'm trying. Sheesh! Give an evil twin a break. I spray paint the big "X" but then it rains or somebody mows.

ReformingGeek returns but Evil Twin won't let her see what was posted.

Sigh. Well, I sure hope she did OK. I don't want to lose followers.

Back to the award. I will pass it on to five great bloggers. Glancing over at my topless commenters, I grabbed a few of you and then had Cat find his favorites. (Remember that Cat is hard to please. You may be his favorite today, but tomorrow, you're food). I wave my wand upon the heads of:

Ettarose, from Sanity on Edge - A fabulous funny redhead!
Quirkyloon, from Musings of a Quirky Loon - A hilarious, loony flathead!
Otin, from Wizard of Otin - Head of story-writing class!
Hit 40, from Sane Without Drugs - Funny lady that leads a classroom full of blockheads math students!
Betty, from My Life in a Multi-Level - Her funnies will cure any headache!

At least I'm not serving head cheese today, 'K?

Enjoy your reward and if you need blog fodder, feel free to do the list of five whatever!

And for the rest of you, just so you don't feel left out, I brought you a flower:

One little vinca I planted last summer came back after recent rains. I'm impressed.

I like your evil twin! Smacking people and digging large holes did it for me.

Congrats on the award, tell the evil twin I particularly liked #5, and I am looking forward to checking out those bloggers. Because Quirky turned me on to you (born in the '60's, sorry) and you're worth telling my kid "5 more minutes" when she's hungry, but I'm laughing as I read, and so, by proxy, I bet your recommendations will be funny too. I can always put the Cheerios box on a lower shelf; it's not like the tot'll starve if my reader has a few more names on it.

The Ettarose and hit40 links didnt work (feel free to delete this part if it's fixed) But I'm now following Betty's blog, so thanks.

ReformingGeek said...

@Deb - Yeah. She's good for a few things.

@Kablooey - Thanks. I fixed the links. Thanks for letting me know. said...

Aw, you gave us a flower. *smiles* Gotta go check out Betty... she's the only one I don't know yet.

Anonymous said...

Aw thanks GF!

That is so kind and sweet of you as only a BBFF would do! But as your BBFF, I need to get you some new (not tequila) glasses, Sweetie! I just got this award from Collette too!

Silly Reffie! You make me laugh! So I'm not rejecting it, I'm just not ready for that kind of commitment, k? I'm a monogamous loon! hee hee

AND... I had to reread your first paragraph...I could've sworn I read LAP DANCE!


ReformingGeek said...

@Catlady - You're welcome.

@Quirky - Double the love, double the fun. ;-)

Marvelous Marv said...

ReformingGeek said...

@mama-face - Thank you.

@VE - The flower was tasty.

Mike said...

(crying) Thank you so much! Do you know how guilty I feel about the awards that I am too lazy to do anything with?? I am such a bad blogger!

Mike said...

OH, by the way, which body parts are for sale?? LOL! I know of a few that I could find use for! haha!

Kelly P said...

Love the pic of the St.Benard.You just can't help but love'em.The plant, as it is now, looks pretty lonely.But it just might get some friends later on down the line.

About the evil twin? I have one of those and he is human.(GOD HELP US)He is my brother, a real ass.He is 3 yrs. younger than me and he can be a real f@#%^king a- hole.That is all I have to say about that.

I'll catch up with you all later.OK!

ReformingGeek said...

@otin - It's OK that you don't do anything with awards. I'll forgive you.

@Donna - Sorry to hear about your brother.

Nooter said...

i need a hobby, maybe i should try eating small yappy dogs

Skye said...

Hey Reffie, first of all let me congradulate you on this award and all those you've passed it on to! :)

Secondly I would like to tell you that your name "Blue Skye's Harvest Granola" is the winning name for my granola, come around to my place to accept your award!

Jean Knee said...

so glad I don't have an evil twin.

Leeuna said...

Awwwh. Thanks for the lovely flower. I have a couple of Impatients that came back voluntarily this summer where I dumped the dirt out of the pot last fall. It was a nice surprise...

The Constant Complainer said...

I like your evil twin too. And I like the idea of passing along blogger suggestions. Very cool. I always try to check out blogs you suggest and I know you've done the same with ones I've tossed out there. That's what it's all about and what makes the world turn. LOL.

ReformingGeek said...

@Nooter - That would be great, Nooter. The world would be so much quieter.

@Skye - Thanks and WOW! I am excited about the name thing. Cool!

@Leeuna - Yeah. Sometimes surprises are pretty cool!

@Constant - Yes, it is nice to pass along the joy we get from keeping it going.
