Calling on the Internet to Be Amazing, Here

Today I found out that loyal Drunkard (and IRL Facebook friend) Allie Cat is going through some stuff.

I happen to know from going through stuff.

No idea why this came up when I Googled "going through stuff,"
but it's too awesome not to share.
Not to broadcast Allie Cat's business, but some of her tribulations are similar to mine, some are not. It doesn't matter; homegirl has been there for me in spades in good times and bad, through this blog, through FB, through another blog we both frequent. She's definitely one of my Best Friends I've Never Met. Here's the link to her blog.

I just want to pay forward the love she's shown me, and the love all of you have shown me. So comment here, or on AC's blog, or on my Facebook page, some words of kindness and support. I know you can do that, because you've done it for me so many times. She lives in Tennessee and makes pepper jelly, people. What more do you need to know to love her as much as I do?

Nothing, that's what.
Allie Cat, as I told you privately, you got this. I'm here whenever you need a sympathetic ear, and I'll bet there are a few folks reading this who will do the same.

We're all one big dysfunctional blog-family. Let's step up and support one another, OK?



  1. Hey, I've seen her comments before! Hang in there, girlie- we all have your back as well! We love you!!!

  2. Well Allie Cat, any friend of Chuck's is a friend of mine.

    I was going to say "Don't worry ... God never gives us more than we can handle" ... but that just makes me think God is a dick. Who would give people shitty things like cancer, or Lou Gehrig's disease, divorce, or the loss of a loved one, because s/he thinks "they can handle it?" That’d be super douchey.

    Then I was going to sent that “footprints in the sand” poem, and remembered the part about where there's only one set of footprints ... and it's allegedly because God’s carrying you. Well, why didn’t God just fuckin' FIX the problem? ’Cause, HELLO! S/He’s God! But whatever ... God’s carrying you. Just what you need when you're dealing with a load of shit in your life. A fuckin’ piggyback ride on the beach. Thanks, God.

    Instead, let me summarize by saying, I hope you get through whatever it is you're going through with a minimum of sand in your bathing suit. Might I also suggest that you consider turning to a different divine "spirit" that has always been there for me in time of need: Vodka.

    warmest regards,


  3. Pepper jelly. Anyone who can think up pepper jelly is a peppery person and full of pepper and vim. Also anyone who can think of a name like Allie Cat has my possibly catastrophic support.

  4. Oh hey - it's OUR Allie Cat from CC. Now I have to go give her a hug.

  5. Aw, yay! Thanks folks! Chuck Baudelaire 4evs!!!!

  6. We'll have our own float, and you and Chuck can ride on it. (Hee, I first wrote "you and Chuck can rude on it.", which will also work).

  7. Because of many of our politicians and a few of our more colorful residents I sometimes feel a need to apologize when I tell people I'm from Tennessee.

    And then I hear about Allie Cat and pepper jelly and I'm reminded that instead of apologizing I should be telling people how much there is to love about this place.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
