Au revoir, les enfants...

I think that’s French for either “Goodbye Children” or “The reservoir is no place for elephants”. In any case, the point is that I’m going to be taking an extended break from blogging, to try and knock off some of the things on my ever growing to do list. Here are just the top five items:

1. Try to convince QVC that my “Origumi” sculptures (small animal figurines that I make from used chewing gum) could be the next big thing. Failing that, auctioning them off on eBay.

2. Finish writing my three volume, unauthorized biography of Orville Redenbacher, tentatively titled “Popcorn Merchant…Sex Machine”.

3. Find out why my coffee machine is making noises that sound like a cross between the wailing of damned souls and a Humpback whale passing a kidney stone and whether or not it just needs to be repaired or taken to an exorcist.

4. Paint a large mural honoring great tambourine players like Davy Jones and…uh…um…

5. Find someone who can name at least two other famous tambourine players.

As you might imagine, I’m anxious to get started, but before I go I’d like to thank HollyGL, Diesel, Jenna, Neva, Jaesoreal, Lord Likely, Paul "FooDaddy" Brand and BrentD for being regular readers of this here blog. If I may paraphrase an old Fleetwood Mac song…You make blogging fun.

Whaddaya mean, whaddaya mean?! I just got here; you can't leave! Elephants in a reservoir! Too funny!

Joel B. said...

Good luck...and come back soon!!

Lord Likely said...

You had better hurry back promptly, lest I set the hounds on your trail.

You have a bit of time, as I have yet to purchase any hounds.

Enjoy your break, sir!

There's 2 famous tambourine players. You can come back now.

Except... now I want to devote a website to famous tambouring players...

HollyGL said...

Well, I'm going to miss you... Take care.

Jenna Howard said...

What the bloody hell man!

This better be a short hiatus. I'd have to beat your ass.

ps - have a nice break.

psx2 - keep it short!!

You are very talented! I suggest you write a book or something.

BrentD said...

TDB,

I know about the conspiracy.

Hoffa, the government humor auditors, and even Celine Dion.

I am going to the authorities with everything. There's no need to go into hiding again.

Surely the world is big enough for all humor bloggers to coexist in envy and well-hidden resentment.

Then again maybe not.

Come back soon.

Diesel said...

Well, I'm sorry to see you go, but at least you're leaving on a positive note, with this very funny post.

I know the feeling, as I've got one or 2 or 6 projects waiting for me as well. Sigh.

Oh, in case you didn't see this post, you've won a free copy of my book, Antisocial Commentary! Just go to my site and fill out the order form so I have your address (or send me an email).

Come back soon!

So it's hello and good bye...
We will miss you, we saw your little drive by car checking us out once in a while!
But we had NO idea that you are Ariel's Mom's brother... And she has chosen you as her nomss friend, what an honor!
Those things you want to do while taking a break from blogging - ah, they will not take you away long.
You'll be back. You'll see.
And we'll all be here, hahahahahaha!
See you again soon!

Cripes, I always arrive at the wrong time. Bye bye. I loved “The reservoir is no place for elephants”. I always thought it meant that, too.

Kali said...

MadMad just took the words out of my mouth! First time I parked here! I want more!

Allen said...

Bad news about the coffee maker. The sound it's emitting is the cry of the doomed soul of a whale passing a kidney stone crying out from the Abyss. Take it to Father Tunas at the Sea World Cathedral. He'll know what to do.

Benjamin Fuzz said...

come back soon!

neva said...

i just hope THIS break doesn't last as long as the last one. oy... (that's right... i may not be FIRST on your "list", but by golly i was here a'fore any of those other kids!)

um... where was i? oh yeah... have a good break, and let me know how you make out with that Origumi. sounds like a real winner! ; )

you'll be missed, my friend, just as you were the last time you took off. (this doesn't have anything to do with the fact that i wanted you to write another post for the Snark, does it? aieeee!)

Paul "FooDaddy" Brand said...

Loved the tambourine gag, TDBB! Good post.

I'm sure I speak for all of the people, regulars and floaters, who have enjoyed the flashbulb pop of brilliance your work brings to our mundane lives when I say that purple socks are only for the very confident man.

Good luck with the non-blogging life buddy! Hope to seeya back soon!

BrentD said...

Alright, the joke is getting old. Get back here and post something before someone gets hurt.

It can't be me getting hurt though. I am still recovering from my spleenal bypass surgery.

And it can't be you, because then you might be too badly injured to write.

Okay, Diesel it is.

Just get back.

crys said...

ok, it's been long enough!

Jaesoreal said...

There is a scary echo in the halls of the blogosphere due to your absence! That was gooood!

Theresa said...

What! I am just getting back to blogging to find you are leaving us. So, just how long will this extended leave be...extended to, say, a couple of weeks, or are we talking about months of anxious fingernail biting while awaiting your return? I'm warning you, my fingernails are none too long to begin with (you wouldn't want me to end up with bloody nubs for fingers, would you?).

Well, I was feeling nostalgic, so I stopped by just to see if perhaps you had returned, and I see that, sadly, the answer is no. I hope you are well, TDB. We miss you. :(
