Popularity should not matter.
I get hung up on how many people are clicking on my IMDB page. Shameless actress behavior.
I get hung up on how many readers my lil’ blog has. And how popular other bloggers are. Like my girl Kelly over at Foodie Fiasco.
Owing to the fact that she made use of the most fantastic mot “fiasco” I think the food-loving powers that be can get over her use of the word “foodie”.
Really, word snobs, get off yer high horse. It’s not like she used the word “moist”. Or like I used the word “cunt”.
Yeah I went there.
And it’s not actually a bad word. Read the book “Cunt” by Inga Muscio, author and feminist.
OMG the f-word! I’m on fire. Fuck.
Anyway read “Cunt”. You may learn something.
I’m gonna get back on track. We were talking about way-kool Kelly!
This popular gal let me write a guest post!
I made a bulgur loaf you can read about here.
And now because I love you even more, and because Kelly is only fifteen so she couldn’t take my cocktail recipe and put it on her blog, I give you some seasonal goodness in the form of a blood orange cocktail.
Blood oranges are all over the interwebs this week, but me posting this recipe has less to do with me being a joiner and more to do with the fact that blood orange season really is ridiculously brief and I want you to make this whilst you can.
No, you cannot substitute regular orange juice.
This is so easy and elegant. You can relish the fact that you have the prettiest drink. Oh yes you do. And yet it is also slightly manly in its deep red hue.
It’s a drink for all people. But not for all seasons. Boo-yah!
