thanks for the memories

Well, you guys have probably noticed that this blog is moribund lately. I'm calling it quits. Nothing dramatic, I just never feel like posting anymore. Hell, I rarely even check the thing lately, and it's only partially because I haven't had much free time to do so lately. I've said all that can be said for now. It's been so much fun! Now go check movie city usa!

But what will bitchy Bee staff do now? Look for jobs at a newspaper that won't lay them off?

Can you at least get Ground Chuck to pick up where you left off?

for what it's worth, the phrase is "Skanks, for the memories".

You'll be back. You always do this. Just like mommy. She always said she'd leave me and then she came back. You'll be back.

werenotdeep said...

See, and people wonder why I left. I knew this was coming, that's why.

leon said...

This sucks. Now I'm going to actually have to interact with people to find out about what's going on in this town.

Oh no! She's committing modemcide! Where will I complain online about the Skyscraperpage people?

I'm sorry I ruined Blogger for everyone else.

Bye Heckasac! said...

Thanks for living up to the cliche of someone "who can dish it out but sure can't take it." I'm sure you'll be much happier at your seeeecret blog surrounded by all the "yes" people in your life. I mean, your dear faithful readers. Toodles!

To respond to the last comment: yes, the secret blog is gonna be way cool.

I was thinking of making up a fake anonymous dickhead "farewell" post to mess with Heckasac but I don't think I could've made up a more perfect one than that!

Quotation mark abuse aside, I guess the problem with writing in a public forum is that you can't get around the fact that people end up reading what you wrote. And people are fucking stupid.

Dear Heckasac,

I would like to apply for your position as one of your "yes" people.

As you know from previous experience with myself, I'm not much of a "yes" people person. No, I'm far more of an annoying cunt, but I plan on changing.

As example, "Yes, that dress does make your ass look sexy". See, you weren't expecting that at all.

Sincerely,

Smitty

Toodles to you anonymous bitchface! We all know that you can dish it out and could eat the bowl of dicks I wish you served everyday. Do you think I care that this doesn't make sense? Fuck you!

Hey Anonymouse Bee employee..

Thanks for living up to the cliche of someone who can dish it out...Anonymously...

beckler said...

hey-I should check this secret blog more often! It's pretty lively. Who has been dishing it out to me? I just got bored cuz I felt like I had written everything that I could write about everything under the sun.

I probably will start it up again in a while. It worked for DB. He came back stronger than every. Now go over to movie city and vote for Gang Related for the next Dare Daniel.

Oh yeah, and Joshua Ploeg's band has a show tonight at the 22nd and S house, starting at seven.

The City of Sacramento will launch the first of four Open House meetings on Wednesday, September 26, at the Library Galleria, 828 I Street.

The Open House meetings are an open invitation for all residents to stop and chat about the city’s future. City officials will be on-hand for three hours so residents can drop in anytime, grab a bite to eat and leave their thoughts and ideas. Parking vouchers are available for the city parking structure at I and 10th streets and play care for children ages 4 to 11 will be provided.

I wonder if the Bitchy Bee is the same one who has strings attached to everything in her house? She has posted some bitchy stuff on here before.

She's too easy of a target. It'd seriously be harder drowning kiddies at the kiddie pool.

DB said...

I'm going to expose this secret blog and blow it all wide open...on my SECRET blog, that is: http://www.ican'tfuckingtellyoucauseit'sasecretblog.secretblogspot.com

FFT said...

a little bird told me DB frontloads content. Is that cheating? Are their rules? Am I just jealous of his output? Do the Broncos really suck balls this year?

Dear Secret Blog,

Congratulations on being elected the News and Review's best secret blog. Give yourselves a hand!

PS: Smitty, if you told Scoopy the Bee that her ass looked nice in that dress, maybe she would sweeten up.

beckler said...

wow, have you guys checked the blog that won second best? now i'm even more glad that i quit this blog to start a secret blog. secret blogs are so much more emotionally fulfilling.

I like how he used Karl Rove's frightening foray into hip hop as an inspirational lesson.

I went to the Mark blog because you said so, but my eyes glazed over and my brain died. Is there anything in there worth reading?

After puzzling over how a blog that has no comments on any post & hasn't posted since April could possibly place #2 best blog in SNR, I figured out that the secret blog lists the wrong link.

It's http://www.marktalk.com/

Please learn to love the secret blog for its faults as well as for the enrichment it brings you daily.

Okay, it's dorky of me to point this out, but beckler could have a secret blog if she wanted one -- or at least a private one. It's is one of the options in the settings page. I guess it is mainly for people who want to post family photos or business stuff. I know: way too literal.

beckler said...

cereal? that's what it is?

i stopped posting because i stopped feeling like posting very often and i felt guilty for not posting. it really wasn't because i was feeling bummed on non-friends reading. that hadn't caused me any anxiety since i upped my meds.

here's a link to a darrell corti thingy in the chronicle

uh, my first sentence was referring to the weird mark talks blog

i love that photo of him. if/when you come back beckler you gotta include an ultra-airbrushed photo of yourself in the masthead.

I'd like to thank everyone who purchased the remaining "I Heard It On The Secret Blog" buttons. They're now sold out. To address some of the complaints, I do recognize that technically you can't "hear" something on the secret blog but Heckamax & I, after hours of consideration, decided we just didn't like the ring of "I Read It On The Secret Blog". However, if the demand arises, we will make that button available. There are however NO plans to make an "I Saw It On The Secret Blog" button so please stop asking. Your incessant emails & phone calls are taking valuable time away from the day-to-day maintenance of the secret blog. In other button news, we have some new 3" buttons arriving soon. They say: "I'm sure I'm much happier at the seeeecret blog surrounded by all the "yes" people in my life". These will sell out quickly.

MAN scooter...i don't know how to tell you this but it sounds like you're button biz...has been outsourced. i keep seeing patches that say "its o.k. to eat chicken on the secret blog.".".

Chick~Chick~Chick~fil~a

ps. I hope the patch I saw that says "blue cheese dip is the new spinach dip"!!!~ has absolutly nothing to do with the secret blog...dog

It's a good thing you gave up on this blog, otherwise you might've mentioned Neil Hamburger and the place would've sold out.

What did Santa Clause give Paris Hilton for Christmas?

He raped her!

There was a huge section of Red Hot Chili Peppers jokes. A fun time was had by me.

beckler said...

I forgot about neil hamburger because I didn't blog about it. I only find about things through reading my own blog.

p.s.-did anyone else get the new sactown mag for free again? it's a compendium of douchery. don't call me a hater, i exempt the coverage of ella restaurant, which sounds very intriguing and looks beautiful. the worst of all is the dream lounge thingy opening somewhere around 15th and I that they said is the kinda place where you can "hold a appletini in one hand and text your broker with the other" or some such garbage.

p.p.s.-I'm stoked on the snandr best of issue!

Why did I bother to vote for you in SN&R (and why did you bother to accept 2nd place) if you were just going to quit? That's really classy.

The "I'm sure I'm much happier at the seeeecret blog surrounded by all the "yes" people in my life" buttons have sold out. Thanks to everyone for the continued support.

DB said...

I have advocated frontloading in all of its forms for decades (to say nothing of backloading, hey-o), sir.

beckler said...

no one has ever accused me of being classy. i didn't "accept" second place. i got third places. they don't, like, contact you and ask if you'll accept it or something.

And now, here's a secret blog seasonal recipe (SBSR) for those of you that have peppers coming out your ears and don't know what to do with them. it's adapted from the excellent cookbook all about braising by molly stevens

cut up two pounds of assorted bell peppers, not green. the more colors you get, the prettier this will be. any size that aesthetically appeals to you

slice a large yellow onion, thickish slices are better

pour 1/4 cup of olive oil in a heavy pan. cook onion on medium heat for about six minutes

dump in peppers, 3-4 minced anchovies (it won't make it fishy, i swear, i recommend 4) and 1 clove diced garlic, hefty pinch of salt and generous pinch of red pepper flakes

braise covered on medium low for around 40 minutes. you want the peppers to be "tender and silky" as she puts it in the book.

turn off heat and stir in two tablespoons balsamic. salt and pepper to taste. best served at room temperature and keeps very well. maybe even better the next day.

it's optional to add chives or basil or both when it has cooled.

this very simple recipe is delicious on pasta. she also recommends it on toast with a schmear of goat cheese. delicious.

Someone looted my pepper plant, so homegrown peppers I have none. I blame the Armeniac, the Bee, and the moon landing hoax.

As people ask how "Shadow of the Moon" is, I let them know they pan back at the end to show the moon stage. It's a hoax!

Is "snandr" pronounced "snander," and do people recognize what we're talking about if we say that?

Will there be more time for Yelpingtons?

Wow, this quite a thread! Had I not been busy MySpacing with other Hella fans or fantasizing about Rob Fong, I might have noticed it ealier.
