Dear Anonymous,



Thanks for the laugh. Let's set a few things straight.

You are absolutely right, my name is not "Pam", it is Pamela.
My life is sunshine and rainbows (most of the time) and when it's not,
I try to think about sunshine and rainbows until they appear again.
The hubs wants me to make sure you know that he is in no-way neglected  
(he also had a few other comments that I will keep to myself. haha)
My house is never perfectly clean (I have a 95lb weim that sheds like a beast) but it is loved and lived in. My car however, is usually full of chickfila bags and empty red bull cans.
I don't know what kind of qualifications I needed to have to judge a high school calendar girl competition last week, but if you are saying that I am not a beauty queen myself, I would have to agree. I'm also not claiming to be one... so I doubt anyone is surprised.

I hope you feel better about yourself after leaving that comment on this post.
I would be lying if I said it didn't hurt my feelings. I forgive you. Now go away.

xoxo, PAMela

I thought hard about deleting my anonymous comment and just pretending like it never happened...
that's me just trying to make the sunshine and rainbows come back out I guess.
but, I wanted to state my opinion that it is NOT ok to say hurtful things to people.
it is not ok to belittle, to judge, to hate, and to comment anonymously. 

Have a good day... and be nice.

Awful and spiteful...miserable. I just want you to know that I stalk your blog...and I love it. You are just a normal person, just like the rest of us.

Keep up the good work!

omg. how horrible! why people take the time to say mean things is beyond me! why exert the effort to be so hateful?

i think you handled yourself amazingly well! i too would have wanted to delete it because who needs that in their life?

i'm so sorry it hurt your feelings.. there are many more who thoroughly enjoy your blog! no worries ;)

You go girl!

I still can not beleive that people have to put others down just to make themselves feel better!

I LOVE your blog and all the fun things you share with your readers.

I feel so sorry for that person that has so much hate in their heart, so sad to live a life like that!


Shine on!

Well said. If she/he comes back I'm gonna kick their butt. Movies

Kelley said...

You ARE a beauty queen and sunshine and rainbows and everything sweet and wonderful. They can jump off a cliff!!!!

Lori said...

There are some blogs I read that are a little controversial and I can at least understand why they may get a nasty comment (although I still don't agree with it - I mean, just keep it to yourself, ya know). But WHY would anyone have an issue with YOUR blog??? So sorry about that commenter, but I love your blog and sunshine and rainbows sounds pretty good to me!

Ashley Paige said...

ok, sounds like someone has a case of the jellies. or something of the sort. people who leave anonymous comments suck. don't worry about it- i love your little slice of blog heaven and clearly you have tons of other readers out there who think so, too. i remember when i got my first anony comment.. of, course, i freaked. and in my own way, addressed it with a snarky tude... this is YOUR blog. you write about whatever you want- and if it's ranbows and sunhine and unicorn tails? Go for it!! personally, i think it's adorbs :)

It is sad that people get jealous and feel the need to say those kinds of things in order to make themselves feel better... Sorry about that Pam! You are super sweet and don't deserve it.

A.Leo said...

WHO does that? Really?! Crazies. I heart this blog!

kirkandmona said...

I said a prayer for Anonymous--it is hard for people that don't have sunshine and rainbows in thier world to fathom that kind of joy. Kudos to you, PAMela, for your perfect reply. I agree with Ashley Paige-your blog is "a little slice of blog heaven". Now, I'm going to go make some cupcakes and am sending rainbow and sunshine smiles from my heart to yours!

anne said...

That was awful of someone to write that. Your response was perfect though. If you don't like someone's blog, why would you even read it? Jeez...anonymous and dumb, for certain.

Hello...You don't know me and I don't know you. I'm what you call a LURKER:) I never post comments but in this case I just felt the need to also state my opinion. I think "Anonymous" is a bit jealous. Not that I'm judging but thinking that it's her house that is filthy and her hubs neglected cause she spends too much time lurking on happy people's blogs! As you said life isn't always happiness and rainbows but it is what you make of it and I for one enjoy all your creativeness and rainbows. Oh, and your dogie is so cute!!!!!

Jessica said...

Holy cow! That mean comment was totally uncalled for. Your response couldn't have been better!

ashley (redonk runner) said...

LOLOLOL people are ridiculous... do they just come up with crap to ramble off to get a reaction? cause your blog is one the least pretentiousness places i can imagine! *sigh* people.

PAMela Dad said...

Nice reply Pam Cake - I know you inside and out and I know your boy (aka Hubs) and my "Grand Dog" ... you are my Sunshine Girl; you take after your mom (big smile). Glad you didn't stoop to the low levels of Anonymous .... I know you can (wink).

Holly said...

Seriously?! Some people really have no class or manners. It makes me sad that someone took time out of their day to think up such craziness.

Michele said...

Some people. I really don't get it. It's hard to put yourself out there and then to have someone say something cruel and harsh like that is really hurtful. You handled this with class and dignity and way better than I would have. You're one of my favorite blogs!

Julie @ My Life...Inspired said...

Wow Anonymous Wow. Apparently nothing better to do than stalk a blog until you can come up with rude comments that you won't even put your name to? Go somewhere else!

You know I love your blog PAMela :) Don't let anyone get you down!!

Unique Finds and Designs said...

Wow, that is just awful! I love your blog and feel its very genuine. It seems to be all you, not doing it for anything except to share your life. Don't let it get ya down!

Daryl said...

So... to all of you that love my sister, thanks for not being completely ridiculous and obtuse. to back up her post...she gets the sunshine and rainbows outlook from our mom, who also doesn't have a messy house. Her husband, my B.I.L. (am i supposed to say it like that?) wont put up with much more of these shenanigans so Anon...you had better drop it. @P -- Sounds like you have a lot of followers who have a lot of nice things to say...i would rather listen to them anyway.

The Great Elephant Symposium said...

That is awful! I can't believe how rude people can be. I personally love your blog! If they have nothing to say they shouldn't say anything at all.

<3 Mary
