Three

October 12, 2011

Now I know I don’t normally kick up a fuss about this sort of thing but I wanted to take a moment to say…

Happy birthday Citrus and Candy!

It’s been a heck of a ride and I can’t be more grateful for the experiences that I had and the people that I’ve met because of this blog. For reading over the past 3 years, thank you from the bottom of my candy-coated heart. xx

And of course where would I be without The Captain? Bless him for putting up with my baking tantrums and IT-related panic attacks.

(Btw, doesn’t his head look a little like a baby orangutan’s? Love it.)

Now for a trip down memory lane…

Warning: Rude content. Hee.

Random blog facts:

  • 11 posts have featured the words ‘frolic’ or ‘frolicking’
  • I said the words ‘orgasm’ or ‘orgasmic’ in 7 posts. Oddly enough I’ve never uttered ‘orgasmatron’
  • Coincidentally ‘climax’ have also been uttered in 7 posts. Climactic = 1
  • Quiver / quivering = 12
  • Erotic = 4
  • Exploding balls = 1


And finally, the most weirdest google search that led to this blog e-v-e-r:

  • big tube 8728 breasted eighties sex queen – some poor soul searched it incessantly over a week. I don’t know what it is or what it means and frankly, I don’t wanna. Sorry dude but I definitely ain’t what you’re looking for.


Oh did I mention that this was a food blog?

Congratulations on your 3rd birthday. That’s quite an achievement. Love the google search and yes, it does make you stop and wonder what it is people are looking for. Perhaps he thought yours was a food blog with a difference.

I cannot believe that quiver/ing would pip frolic/king at the post – more frolicking, I say!

Oh, and, um, happy birthday to Candyland!

Citrus and Candy October 12, 2011 at 15:44

I could never say no to more frolicking! Oh and though I never mentioned it in this post, I also had the search term ‘cherry popping girl’ and immediately thought of you.

Ok, that sounds like all kinds of wrong…
