Happy Belated Anniversary...To Me!

Holy Crap! I took a look around The Dept. and suddenly realized that I have been blogging for a whole year now. A little over, even: August 6th, 2005 was my first post.

And they said it wouldn't last.

Since then, I have been regaling visitors with accounts of phallic Christmas trees, the furor over whether or not Pluto should be a planet, musical mail trucks, left-leaning politics, the world of helpful pharmaceuticals, my sometimes self-actualized sons, my all-out war on backyard rodents, the three distinctions among beers, and most recently, my awesome cruise to Alaska.

And where would you all be without them? I shudder to think. As should you.

I hope you have a chance to waste a little time and wander back among the things On File at the Dept. (see sidebar). Heaven knows, next Friday I'm back to work and posts will become fewer and farther between! ;-)

Thanks for sticking around! And when you drop by next, bring a new recruit.

  2. Happy Bloggerversary! Mine is next week.

    I am so wanting a slice of that cake. I can almost taste it and all its sugary goodness.

    I'm SHOCKED though that it appears to be purchased. What? You didn't bake and decorate it yourself with a Wilton pan and pastry tube? Didn't you take the class on how to bake cakes, win friends, and influence people? ; )

  3. anali & v-grrrl,

    What is it about seeing a cake that causes that immediate reaction of wanting some? I got an immediate craving while searching for an anniversary cake pic, and I'm more of a "pie person" myself. And, V, believe it or not, I have decorated more than a few fussy cakes in my time, but purely as an amateur. I don't even own more than one pastry bag--I am a devotee of the frostings in a tube, myself.

  4. I bake two real, made-from-scratch and decorated cakes each year--birthday cakes for each kiddo. I've taken to buying cakes for holidays and my hubs and I birthdays. In Belgium, the bakeries are so excellent, I'm afraid I'll never bake again!
