Goodbye

You know, a few months ago, rumor had it that someone had voted me a thinking blogger. I'm not gonna say who it was....because then you'll be bombarding her with requests for her to share her crack with you.

I freely admit to not being a serious blogger. I think that life is serious enough. I need the frivolity of silliness, snarkiness and nakedness....uh, scratch that last one it has nothing to do with you - to ease the stress of everyday life.

I've gotten a funny post award and thinking blogger and a couple of others. I have never acknowledged them - but it's not because I'm being a bitch - it's because I didn't know quite what to say. I'm not good with the modesty thing...so while you saw no "THANK YOU"'s or "THAT'S GREAT I DON"T KNOW WHAT TO SAY"'s - I do deeply appreciate it and did the happy dance - accompanied by being insufferable in varing degrees (hush Carm).

I have gone from blogging every so often, to blogging everyday, to blogging intermitantly, to trying my best to put something up on Monday Wed and Fri.

I had quite a few readers once upon a time ago....used to get regular emails from a few....and even happily blog surfed to waggle my ass at someone in their comment box...but I don't do that much these days. The site meter would register a couple of hundred hits a day a few months ago and that used to be what would make my day...but not any more. The ol' bloggin engine is winding down...and I'm ready to go...and I think it's past time that I did so.

The 'ol blog just isn't as snarky as it used to be....and that's a good thing...because my snark usually equals anger...and I'm not as angry as I was even a year ago. I used to walk around constantly pissed off at everything, and this has given me a great place to really say what I wanted to say and learn from others...and I've learned quite a bit from all of you.

I guess really what I've been trying to say here is this:

Thanks for reading...and letting me read...and talking with me.

See you on the flip side.

Angela

I was going to give you an award too really?!?!?
Would you stay just for me?!?!?!
LOL ;o)

It's sad to see peeps come and go, then again I think that is just the "cycle" of life. People come and people go...

LOL I admit I have been one to say to myself, "HA! I wonder what _______ will have to say?"

Hope it's not forever!

whoa!!!!

K I have to admit ..I did not see that coming.

I think that you are wise to know to choose what fits for you and your life.

I have enjoyed "knowing you" and reading your posts and wishing I could be a little more like you for snark.

I will absolutely miss you!!!!!!!!!

I thank you for all the fun during the lose that ass challenge too!!!
hint....I am ready for round two to anyone out there..muffin top is back.

Thank you for sharing your life, your *smiles*,*tears*, heartache and hopes with me, much appreciated.

Wishing you all the best to you and your family and should you ever decide to return again please let me know.
Your friend , quinn xoxox

Awww, dont go, I like having you around, reading yours and reading mine.

Stay in touch, you hear?

I know how you feel. I had to take a hiatus too. It'll suck not seeing your snark, but I hope you pop up in the comments every once in a while. There's still time for that, right? I'm glad that you're not so angry, though. That's good news. Good luck, dude. It's been real.:)

Jeepers. I get a spare moment to check in and you're checking out!

It's the eyebrow thing, isn't it? Isn't it??? You can buy new ones you know... Like fake moustaches that go over your eyes.

I can understand though. It's a pressure when things are really busy and if you don't post enough, people stop coming by. But we all seem to be here now to wave you a fond farewell. We will miss you..

OK, what's going on? It's like I finally get the cool jeans everyone else is wearing and suddenly they say "Oh, we're not wearing those any more."

You can't QUIT! (I'm having a little tantrum...bear with me.) I know I'm supposed to be all understanding and say "Yeah, I know you have to do what's best for your family," yada, yada...

But I love your writing, your stories and your humor. I guess it really isn't all about me, is it?

Seriously, keep in touch--check in occasionally. I still have a link to your blog on mine and I'm not removing it.

Love ya--miss you already.

It's just like high school... as soon as I join the party, everyone leaves. Is it me? Do I smell? *wandering around the room* Hello?

Awww Nicki don't go. I still have all that beer that Wench owes me to drink. Who's house will I stop at on my way to Virginia Beach now? I mean come on when I have to pee I have to pee.

I know how you feel. I kicked around the idea of leaving also. I think that you MIGHT be back when life kicks up the need. I hope so. Miss you.

OH NO!

I'm sorry you have to go. I really am. But please don't. :*(

Must get a tissue....

I can't believe this. I finally discover some snark I can get behind and POOF! You're gone too.

*sigh*

Another great blogger gone.

I'll miss you.

I lurk around a little, but just wanna say this. I think you said it best yourself. You're not as angry now as you were a year ago. I won't pretend to know what's going on in your life, other than what you've posted. I think this is is a healthy vent for you. Whatever you decide to do, do it well. If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right, you know? Take care.

Okay, I just found you, only to discover you're leaving. This genuinely sucks. But at the same time, I know what you mean, which also sucks. I just read an article that says blogging is on its way out. I hope that's not 100% true because I'd hate to see blogging turned over completely to the religious nuts and the advertisers. Maybe every once in a while something will strike you and this will be the place to put it. Like Judy Tenuda says, "It could happen."

Oh man, I'm so sorry to hear this. But on the other hand, I know about that anger thing, and I'm glad to hear your anger meter isn't pegged all the time.

Happy trails, I've missed you, so I guess I'll continue to do so.
