Venison Sucks and So Do Blogger Goodbyes

No, I'm not leaving, but more on that later...

This last week, Mr. Coffee embarked on a hunting trip just up north of us with a friend and my father in law. The other guys bow hunt while Mr. Coffee tromps around with them in the woods for camaraderie's sake. If the guys bag an elk, all the better for them. They left the day after Thanksgiving and arrived back in town three days later with most of their nether regions frozen...and no dead carcass which was good, as the thought of killing Bambi's dad would be too much for me to bear.

Nobody in the Bee house is big on venison or elk meat although my FIL rightly insists that the meat shouldn't be gamey tasting if you can cool the meat down fast enough after you kill it.

That's like saying I'd like black pudding if it wasn't for the pigs liver and the blood.

While Mr. Coffee was trolloping through the woods in 20 degree weather, I decided to tackle the house. The kids and I baked, cleaned, and cleared out the last of stray moving boxes stuffed in closets and storage spaces. When it comes to stuff, I'm a thrower and Mr. Coffee is a hoarder. Minimal is phenomenally easier to clean.

In sadder news, I'm officially saying an internet goodbye to my friend, Doozer, who after blogging for a bit longer than I have (think nearly 4 years) has plausibly given me more laughs than anyone online. She is a great friend, on and off the blogosphere, loyal, smart and straight up honest.

The word is out she is closing up shop due to the Dooce factor and/or people she knows who can't manage to mind their own beeswax. I wish it wasn't so but some people have no life and need to stalk, apparently. I know that the internet is public and free to access. However, I also know that with her closing her blog those people stalk me here looking for her.

That said, she will be sorely missed by this blogger. Please stop for a moment of silence while I offer up a 21 Scissor Kick Salute.



Blogging will not be the same without you.....

I'm shedding a tear for the Dooz. She is awesomely awesome, and no one ever made me feel more loved and appreciated for fear of stabbing than she. That's how she rolled.

Doozer, I hardly knew ya, but you will be missed. Seriously.

I have never known blogging without the Big Doozie. If she is really not coming back, it will be kinda weird.

Elk meat...good
Clean House...better
Having to leave blogland because of stupid people...that just is wrong!

Doozie is the best. I would never know you or anyone else if it weren't for her. She just rocks, plain and simple. And she needs to call me.

Sniffs for Doozie...at least her tuna casserole recipe will live on...
Our neighbor gives us deer and elk meet, usually ground. He has a friend that owns a grocery store and grinds it, then mixes it with half beef, so it doesn't taste as much like sweat as regular game can.

Dooce is stupid..

Boozer, well..I cant figure out how they find her, or why they would want to..( i mean who searches online looking to see if people have blogs? and its not like she blogs about work, I dont get it...)

I will miss her...she is a good woman..

It is sad.

I haven't seen a good stabbing threat since, and somehow only Doozie is able to make that seem funny.

Love the salute. She has earned it. Good bye dear departed doozer.

That almost made me cry! I'm SO sad Doozer's done blogging. Stupid stalkers!

That was a great post!

I am so bummed. Just today, I was saying to someone, "I hate people." I do.

I can't think of a more appropriate salute. Yeah...

That's really sad, and I'll miss Badoozie. Stupid stalker scum.

Badoozie was the first blogger I connected with and one of the funniest, smartest women I know. She makes things happen, like special boxes mailed to you when you need a pick-me-up, fun visits and long road trips. She makes awesome fudge and I hear she is the Snickerdoodle Queen. She is a spy and Extractor of Information. She makes you think and makes you laugh....sometimes at your expense but mostly at hers!

I have seen evidence of stalker activity on my site meter, people looking for her and it makes me mad!! Just leave her alone you evil stalkers!!

Is there such thing as a BLogger Witness Program?? Maybe we should start one.
