Milestones, Traveling, and Blogging Buddies

Posted by Adam | Posted in , | Posted on Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Ok, this is HUGE. H-U-G-E. With both some new readers, and the always beautiful BwD faithful, I reached 50 comments not once... but twice. How awesome is that? And guess what? This is my 50th post. I know... it's crazy. I remember my first few posts, and I was like "I'm kinda running out of material, how do I keep this going?"

The short answer is just keep on typing whatever pops into your head (but PG-13 rated and lower helps), and just have fun. Make some friends, and just be your awesome self. If people didn't like you, or they wouldn't really come by, right? So bascially I'm going to treat this like Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, and just keep rolling with the punches.

So to everyone that helped me on my monumental climb to Cloud 50, thank you ever so much. Since coming back from my trip late Monday, I've already tried to make some rounds, and dropping comments like I did Buffalo wings... into my stomach :)

I have some rather unfortunate news though... and I apologize in advance.

Due to my packing and moving back home this coming Sunday... all baking and glorified food photos are suspended... until early next week. I've packed up my pans, my flour and whatever is left... and I just don't have the time to devote to making awesome sweets. I'm leaving for NC for chiropractic job stuff on Thursday, I come back on Saturday, and then I drive back home to Albany on Sunday. It's going to be a little nuts... but I'm going to make it fun at the same time :)

So, this post is just to let you guys and gals know a few, albeit random things (which you might like):
  1. Everyone who helped me reach 50... you are cooler than an a frozen Vanilla Ice
  2. Don't worry if I'm not around commenting this week... as Arnold said in T2... I'll be back
  3. To the new readers... thanks for checking me out
  4. Buffalo wings are good hangover food... yup
  5. I'm not 18 anymore... or at least my body knows it
  6. If you're still up at 4am, you probably have a good story to tell :)
And finally, I have a few awards and unfinished business to take care of...

Now it's been awhile since I've recieved these, and due to some absent-mindness and somewhat of a hectic schdule... I kinda forgot who gave me exactly what... but here goes :)
Helene of La Cuisine de Helene gave me this Kreative Blogger Award... which I much appreciate. They even spelled creative in a cool way. Thanks!
Carla of Chocolate Moosey gave me this I Love you This Much Award... which is really sweet, but sometimes I think she just wants me for my chocolate... or moose... haha j/k :)
Shreya of Mom's Cooking is a good friend of mine from another time zone, and about a half day away. Even though we live in totally different times, we love good food and good laughs. It's very BFF quality :)

Whew, and that's it. Anu of ...And a Little Bit More... has a fantastic, healthy centered blog. It is a new favorite of mine, and I absolutley love how she incoropates a balanced life style with knockout sweets. She recently tagged me... with these rules:

The rules of the tag are:
(a) List these rules on your blog.
(b) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
(c) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

So here are mine.... random facts about me... totally random...
  1. I love breakfast at any time of the day
  2. I actually enjoy shopping with mom
  3. I talk too much during class... or back when I took classes
  4. I have blue eyes
  5. I can't wait to finally start making money
  6. I think Halloween has the best decorations of any holiday
  7. I am very, very excited for the new James Bond
If you want to learn more about me... complete with pictures... you can click here too...
And I need to pass this on to 7 others... hmmm... VeggieGirl, Carla, Natalie, Ben, Dawn, Teresa, and Sarah. I bet they all have some cool responses for us :)

Ok, sorry for the rambling and long post. I have to go pack up some more boxes... remember to stay cool, don't play with sea urchins or fire, and I'll be around your blog soon. If you have any good reccomendations for sights in the Raleigh/Greensboro area... write me an email. Thanks :)

Another trip? Have fun... haven't been to either of the places you are traveling to, so I am gonna keep my mouth shut.

Congrats, Congrats, and Congrats. Also wish you many many many posts! A guy who likes to shop with his mom is just about perfect:-) I am on a mini-vacation (not much like a real vacation) myself, and wont be posting, but cannot help visiting my fav spaces!

Phew, 50! you rock. I'm with you on #1 and #5 :) having just moved myself, i am not jealous of all your boxes ;-)

You're doing more miles this month than some people do an whole year! Good luck in NC and with packing and moving. What an exiting time! So you're gonna start baking southern now? have fun with all and don't drink much, remember the eyes, mind, heart, body thing! ;)

I can't believe I missed your 50th post milestone!! Congrats! Btw, I really missed reading your super cool jokes the past little while when I was busy!! Your blog is always a great place to visit whenever I'm in a bad mood because after your jokes, how can I not be smiling?

Congrats on the big 5-0! Good luck with the move and looking forward to more baking.

thanks for visiting my blog and leaveing such funny and nice comments :) I m looking forward to your updates. It s not strange you reached 50 your posts are so interesting and funny at the same time. Good trip back home :)

woot! congratz! but what is it with you and 50?! 50 posts, 50 comments :)) and congratz on the awards!

50, huh? I feel like this is a 50th anniversary party that I was late to, came without a gift, and knocked over the punch bowl into the DJ booth. Congratulations, partner.

I want 50 comments...
Maybe if I had enough time to make my blog rounds like I used to... hmmm...

Congrats - I know EXACTLY how it feels. I think I got like a gazillion comments on like my third post. I was happy!


Haha! :) I did check the make sure you were not delusional like I did posting about 100th post! Gosh. Congrats for 50 posts! I can eat breakfast food anytime of the day too. Happy packing and unpacking ;)

Hmm I could use some buffalo wings right now *cough* Now off to think of 7 random things. Have a safe trip!

Adam, there is another Award for you to collect from my blog.

Congratulations on the big 50s and the awards. Take our time; I'll be here when you're back :)

What?? No sea urchins OR fire? You really play hardball, you know that?

Sorry I've been MIA for so long--life is keeping me very busy, as I see it will be for you, too.

Congrats on your awards, you definitely deserve them! See you when you get back!

Hey! I'm glad you've been gone and busy since I have too and I wouldn't have been able to keep up if we hadn't been switched at birth and thus take our vacays at the same time.

Thanks for using my code name, as in my real name, on the tagged. I wondered who Natalie was, and then it occurred to me that it could possibly Me... and thus it is.

I know I owe you an email, it's coming!

Woah, that cake looks killer!

the cake looks awesome, but the name is what give it some bad-assness.

glad you made it home safely. looking forward to some new baking blogs from ya. and if your travels ever take you to kc, i could really use an adjustment. ;)

Adam, when I see that photo of Ponderosa - oh my, all these memories just flooded to my head!! It was 'the' place in this town where I went to school at. It's in Kentucky and have population of 13000. We used to go there for buffet - or..actually the entire town is there on Sunday.

I can't help but crack up about your Canadian roommates - no, eh, eh?! :) That's one thing that I have not picked up on.

Oh, this sounds great. I love everything in this cake. Cinnamon + chocolate = awesomeness.
