A Snarky Chat with the Geek Girl - Part 2

What's up, RG?

Oprah's here at the State Fair of Texas over in not-Fort Worth.

Do you mean Dallas?

Um, OK. Yeah. Dallas. Oprah ate the Fried Butter and exploded into a million pieces while riding the Ferris Wheel.

Oh dear. That sounds awful. Was anyone hurt?

I think a few of the patrons were splashed and a few were impaled. It was nothing serious. Bleh.

Um....let's move on. How's Hubby?

Lemme think....Oh yeah. He had a birthday Monday and I wrote a poem for him. FaceBook butchered it when I tried to post it. Here it is:

Happy Birthday to Hubby
Celebrating the half-century milestone
With love from your silly wife

Struggling with the last line of this poem.

(When you're from Texas, "stone" and "poem" rhyme).

Also, Hubby says thanks to all of you that commented on his (not the tortured fedex guy's) legs in the previous post. His knee is better and he's almost up to full cat-kicking speed.

Hum....well. You are such the poet... I guess the kitty should keep his distance, huh?


Anything else you want to share today, RG?

Of course there is. I won! I won! I won the Golden Phallus!

The Golden WHAT?

Yeah. It's a Golden Chinese Restaurant. I ate there last week.

That would be Golden PALACE, RG.

Whatever. I guess that's why it doesn't look Chinese. I got it from Me-Me-King for winning her caption contest:

Also, that sweet Carolina Girl Ettarose gave me this because I give great bloggy hugs (and real life hugs):

OK. OK. Get off yourself ReformingGeek!

Aw, Gosh Dern It. Can't a girl have some fun?

**Yawning** Sure. OK. WHAT ELSE?

I told Nooter I'm sending him my *cat. He has a bird problem:

**Rolls eyes** Nice. Is that it, RG?

Yep. All done. Thanks.

*Believe it or not, this poor kitty is not my useless beast. It showed up via email. I think it must be a clone, though.

OOH! Kitty in a box... what a great toy! Glad hubby's knee is improving. And congrats on the awards... your caption rocked! I'm going to picture that image in my mind every time I give a speech!

Deb said...

I sent you some red spray paint. Paint a red circle around the base of the cat's tail to aid in Hubby's aim.

ReformingGeek said...

@CatLady - Thanks. Poor kitteh.

@Deb - Now that wasn't necessary. I have some in the garage. Sheesh.

Jordasche Bledsoe said...

Poor cat! Looks like someone shoved him in there against his will :( I love your 'conversation' posts. This was funny just like the rest. I appreciate your sense of humor.

Me-Me King said...

Congrats again RG! I love the kitty-in-a-box. Don't send him to Nooter, send him to me!

Jean Knee said...


I've never, even once, seen a golden phallus

ReformingGeek said...

@Jordasche - Thanks. Yeah. That kitty really looks tense.

@Me-Me King - Yeah. Shipping charges are probably cheaper!

@Jean - Me neither.

Congrats on the awards. Not to jump off-topic in a rudely quick fashion, but, you know anybody selling splashes or shards of exploded Oprah on eBay? You see, I'm a really big Oprah fan from way back, and I thought I might purchase me a little memento. Kudos on the awards and hubby's knee and all; just keep me in mind if you hear of somebody rushing their Oprah-befouled clothes to the dry cleaners. thanx.

Thar she blows!

heh heh

I'm glad that the Hubster's knee is on the mend and congrats on your Golden Phallus Award! I bear one proudly at me blog too!

We both have phallus!

Got phallus?

hee hee

honeypiehorse said...

I love it when cats get into boxes that are too small for them.

ReformingGeek said...

@Kablooey - Thanks. I'll keep my eyes open.

@Quirky. - Boom. Oops. Everyone needs a symbol. ;-)

@honeypiehorse - Or baskets or sinks or other silly "too small" receptacles.

Nooter said...

hahaha ha haha hahaha ha!

say, whats the warranty on that cat? you know, in case it doesnt work when it gets here.

Curious Marvin said...

So does that go on the mantle next to DH's Platinum Pootay Award?

The Old Silly

Unknown said...

Reffie, you deserve that award. Funny post, I loved it. I won a golden penis once. From the Lord Likely himself. I am having problems getting out and about on the computer. Please don't think I have forgotten you.

Meg said...

I should be in on this award stuff. I know, I'll award you the opportunity to read some of my students' writings. But you won't know whether to laugh or to cry.

ReformingGeek said...

@Nooter - No guarantees unless you can catch him and send him back in one piece, undamaged. Oops.

@Marvin - No "poot" awards, please.

@etta - Thanks. No worries. It's always nice when you stop by.

@Prefers - Absolutely, you should. As for the reading, maybe I could put them in the bathroom or maybe straight to the litter box?

Jenn Thorson said...

Noticing your Pebbles photo over there, I'm reminded, Pebbles WAS in a Rock Band, I believe (I guess any band on the Flintstones should have been a ROCK band, but still...)

I guess your husband was BamBam? (Sounding more and more appropriate after reading that cat-kicking bit in the post...)

Mike said...

Golden phallus!! LOL!!

That poor kitty! :)

Jen said...

Congratulations on the awards and the kitty in the box is priceless, and I don't even like cats.

ReformingGeek said...

@Jenn - I wish Hubby would get a Bam-Bam costume. Everyone kept asking where Bam-Bam was last year when I was Pebbles.

@otin - He he.

@Jen - Thanks. Yes, that's a cute baby and he really does look so much like our real one!

Hit 40 said...

OMG!! Otin has a heart. I forgot your post when I saw that poor box of cat. I hope this was photo shopped.

Hit 40 said...

And... I saw your comment that it is not your cat. Just a pic that someone emailed you.

Maureen said...

Aw, love the kitty in the box pic... I want to tickle his big feets!

Congrats on your awards. And the poem is great. You can make anythng rhyme with a southern accent, can'tcha?

Nooter said...

that cat aint right.
does it come with a spine? is that shipped separately?

ReformingGeek said...

@Hit 40 - Don't let Otin fool you. He probably took that photo of that cat after he stuck the cat in the box.

@Maureen - Thanks. Hum....my kitty also has big feets!

@Nooter - This is the new model. Flex-kitty can go in and out of all kinds of nooks and crannies.

Unknown said...

Glad to see i am not the only one in the world who is NOT an Oprah fan...
Look at those sweet awards! and that poor kitty in a box!!!

yanno i was thinking the other day on how we met...in the bloggy world that is...it was from Bee and her secret santa can suck it LOL wonder if she is doing that again...is it wrong that i run the secret santa soiree AND joined the SSCSI?

Hit 40 said...

I am trying to decide how someone got impaled from the Oprah exploding? Was she wearing a bedazzled sweatshirt that shot the dazzles out at everyone?

ReformingGeek said...

@georgie - I can't believe it's almost been a year. If it's wrong to do both, then I don't want to be right. ;-)

@Hit40 - You are over-analyzing again. ;-)

Skye said...

Congrats on the awards! I like how you told everything through the interview, nice touch. Oh yeah, good to hear that Hubby's knee is on the mend :)

Nooter said...

you know, if you let a little more air out of that cat you could probably ship it in a lower cost envelope.

those inexpensive chinese cats arent put together very well. give me a good ol' american cat any day!

facing budget cuts, al-quada has resorted to sending angry household pets in place of the more-effective ied's.

ReformingGeek said...

@Skye - Thanks - Good to hear from you!

@Nooter - You seem a bit obsessed with the kitty captions today. Go out and chase a squirrel, 'K?

Unknown said...

Love the interview! (and Orca, I mean, Oprah exploding!)
Does the flex-kitty come with an on/off button if it starts to drive you crazy?

The Constant Complainer said...

I thought of you over the weekend. The History Channel was doing specials all weekend about Dallas, Dealey Plaza and JFK. They called it "Kennedy Declassified" or something like that. You need to do a post from the Grassy Knoll or something one day!

The cat picture in the box was very cute! I showed it to my daughter.

ReformingGeek said...

@Collette - I wish cats had an on/off switch!

@Constant - Thanks. I really should go to Dallas sometime. ;-)
