"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

I guess I've arrived as a blogger.

And, I guess I should be glad it took over 4 yrs. I received my first nasty for the sake of being nasty comment on my show and tell post. To paraphrase the comment, the ever so brave anonymous commenter said the turkey tetrazzini "looked disgusting, bland, and what was with all the soup mixes. Think about the additives. Couldn't I cook anything from scratch."

Guess its a good thing a don't give a flying fuck what Mr/Ms anonymous thinks.

To celebrate my arrival as a blogger, I think I'll have a VIRTUAL PARTY. Post here, tell me what you are bringing to my virtual party and, at some point, I'll pick a commenter to win a door prize. That's right...its GIVEAWAY time.

I'll get the party started with a round of mojitos for everyone!

PS...ROFLMAO at myself...I typed out that whole turkey tetrazzini recipe and forgot to put down the turkey on the ingredients list. I fixed it.

Mmmm, Mojitos? I love Mojitos!! Count me in! I'll bring some game biltong! Its totally delish and a local delicacy!

As for Ms/Mr Nasty, you're lucky it took 4 years! I've been getting little trolls since the inception of my blog.
I like to think its because I'm so damn popular that somebody's got to be jealous and bring me back down to earth! Hahahaha! ;-)

Jim and Jenn said...

I am mildly jealous you got a nasty comment - I am not that far into my "readership" I guess...LOL

As for Capt. Dumbass anonymous poster....I am sending one seriously huge "bird" to them on your behalf.

I think the Turkey Tettrazini looked great (since I don't really cook at all - anything in a casserole dish looks fantastic to me!) Keep on keeping on!!

Cara said...

Um Hon - you ARRIVED long ago and that just takes the cake!

Speaking of cake - I'll bring a one of the German Chocolate variety! (my faaavvvooorite)

And sorry I didn't get to all the Show and Tells to comment - but that person would be ahast at how I make my Chili!


Jen J said...

MMMMMM!!!! I could use some Mojitos! Sorry about the nasty commenter.... I guess that's one of the benefits of being a Private Blog! Obviously someone who was sick the day they did the "If you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all" lesson in Kindergarten.

I think the Tetrazini looked great, and obviously this person has never lived in Minnesota because the "rule" for casseroles up here is that if it doesn't have Cream of Something (usually Mushroom) soup in it you did something wrong! LOL!

Hmm....what to bring? I'll bring some barbequed meatballs complete with the little colored toothpicks! =)

K said...

I am bringing a pineapple macadamia nut tart.

And anon can bite me. :oP

MrsSpock said...

Most of my trolls have been breastfeeding or natural birth people- which is hilarious, because I am always so openly supportive of such things. They just didn't work with my body- so to them, my failure was a choice, not just something that happened. LOL.

I don't think it looked disgusting, though because of my sodium restriction, I couldn't make anything with so many canned soups and whatnot.

Yes, you have arrived!

Beautiful Mess said...

YAY for you having arrived! Welcome, hehehe. I'll have one of those mojitos and I'm going to standing over Cara's cake. Oh how I love German chocolate cake! I'll bring Spicy Bean Soup. I can put it in a crock pot and we can just dip into it when we want to. Mybe it'll sober us up from your mojitos? ;o)
Enjoy your day!

rys said...

Well dear, you know I have to bring some pepperoni bread. I wonder how many preservatives are in that?!?!

Meari said...

WOW... Unbelievable that someone would be so rude to actually post a comment like that!

I'll join your virtual party!! How about some wine?

Margaret said...

You've arrived!!! Good grief, can people not think of anything NICE to say? Or just shut up? I'm bringing green bean casserole with those lovely fried onions..... I"ll bet there are lots of preservatives in them!

Anonymous said...

Huge congratulations on the troll. Imagine that posting a recipe could be the MOST incendiary thing you've ever posted about.

Okay, just got here from the Virtual Lushary, so haven't actually read your archives. Just going to guess, though... if you fit in with this group, you've probably said something worst than "use soup mix." Just a guess.

Hey, I'll bring something... anything... that allows me to try out a new product I saw at the grocery store... Bacon Salt. You know, for those times you need to think you're eating bacon and Bacos just won't do. How does a Bacon Salt Smoothie sound?

Lee said...

Mmm.... pass me a mojito, some spicy bean soup and some of Cara's cake.

I'll be bringing some Oreo Chocolate Chip Cheesecake, since it's so healthy!

Megan said...

Mean people suck.

I'm ready to party - and I'm bringing my Chocolate Guinness Ice Cream - yum!

I'm LOL along with you about the forgotten turkey - one year after Thanksgiving, my mom made TT, and forgot the turkey! Whoops! LOL

Little Miss Flossy said...

How rude! Tutae mo te roro. Email me if you want a translation!

Hmmm, it's summer here and the strawberries are beautiful so I'd bring a big pavlova with fresh berries on top.

Bean said...


I'll bring my mom's favorite quick and easy midwestern processed party food - a block of velveeta cheese mixed with a can of hormel chili - heated up, and served with a bag of Fritos. FUCK YEAH!

Another Dreamer said...

LOL! What a jerk. And you arrived as a blogger a long time ago.

Soralis said...

Wow 4 years! Aren't you lucky! :) Wishing you only nice comments from now on!

WiseGuy said...

Hmmm..... wow, nasty bloggy love...LOLOL, I am totally in for the virtual feast....I will get Veg Pulao!

Days like These! said...

Raising my cup in the air! You have ARRIVED my dear. I love the way you're handling it.

I'm going to bring a pineapple upside down cake.



NHStitcher said...

Welcome to the rude comment club! I've had a few and delete them.

I'll bring some of that Baked Eggplant Parmesan to the party since everyone that read my blog wants the recipe. I'm going to post it too.

~Tammy said...

I'll bring Cute Boy's raspberry biscuits! They are yummy good.

Emma said...

Wow, lucky you! I haven't had the dubious pleasure of a rude commenter yet, though I did have a religious crazy for a while, posting massively long comments. I read one and couldn't figure out which religion s/he was in favor of, so that went in the delete bin. My only negative comment was from my mum, who was deeply offended at my mentioning that our house growing up was not perfectly neat. ;)
