I miss Rushmore, I miss the seasons (oh, and you)

Yeah, I’m RETIRED. Dunzo. This silly little blog has certainly surprised me in many ways, especially the most recent. So I’ll just say goodbye. Fare thee well. All's well that ends well, etc.

Thank you to my friends who have written for this blog, to those of you who have become dear friends because of it, and particularly, those lovely lurkers who wished me well and I hope enjoyed this quite trite form of self-expression as much as I did.

Wipe those tear though, I’ll still see you at the Happy Hours.

When all the cool kids step away from blogging, is blogging still cool....


You kept it real, one of the best DC Female bloggers to ever be in the game.

Son of a bitch! I didn't get the Circle V love until late in the game, and now I will not feel her tender carresses any more....

I hate that, CV. Another good one gone.

"It's time to leave when you're still hitting the long ball and have something else you want to do."

I'd wish you luck, but considering that you have both skills and wisdom well beyond your years, I don't know that you'd need it anyway.

You'll be missed - take care of yourself out there!

Still marvelling at our fates aligning on today of all days.

I could tell you chin up or onward and upward, but your jaw is already defiantly set, and you are already well on your way.

Much love!

Holy Hades! What is in the water around here?

You are without a doubt one of the best blogs around. We'll have to respect your decision and not tie you up and force you to blog, I guess, but I will miss you!

Oh, heavens, this stinks. I'm pouring some of my Olde E on the ground. Don't be a stranger.

Holy hell, is it National Kill Your Blog day and I missed the memo?

Best of luck to you, and I'm sorry to see you go.

I'm heading down to the bomb shelter, just in case this is all the work of an assassin.

Everyone is, Kathryn, maybe Cookie...even VK took his down.

Maybe it's a sign of the times...but think of the legacy we leave...

alas you've had one of the best straight up blogs around CV, and I thank you for introducing me to other great bloggers (such as all those here) through your site.

you will be missed and its hard to lose such a great writer and person period.

As a still relative-baby to the blogging world - I'm going to miss you! You were one of the reasons I decided to get as involved as I have and I guess all I can say is good luck and I can't wait for more happy hours!

you will absolutely be another relative baby, I appreciate your kindness...if there's anything you need, please let me know!

Good to quit while you're ahead. It's a sign of having class. Text blogs were so 2006 anyway. If I ever schlep out to a HH, I'll be sure to say....."Hellllloooooooooo!" (like in Seinfeld, so you'll know it's me ;-) Take care.

Dating Hell Diarist gets married and CircleV gets bored. 2 of the better confessional blogs are now gone. What's a voyeur to do?

what is going on? I am just a blog stalker but have read for years (kathryn, you, roosh will be next).
How sad. You had a great blog.
Perhaps we should have a blog stalker happy hour (as I don't come to them as I feel silly saying - well I know y'all cause I read your blogs everyday)!

Whoa, not you too! It's a conspiracy or something.

In any event, I loved reading all of your amazing stories and getting to know you, and I'm glad we'll still see you about. That's what's important--real, live, face-to-face interaction.

Best of luck to you and keep ya head up. :) And remember, a compliment's just a compliment. ;)

When you write that Great American Novel, I'll be very happy and proud to say, "I knew you when..." But, then again, I'm currently very happy and proud to say, "I know you now."

It's been a pleasure.

I keep coming back here to see if maybe you've posted again.

I know, I'm a loser. But a hopeful loser.

Wow...just saw this.
I know how you feel about needing to step away from blogging.
I hope to get to see you more in the real world. I know we keep missing each other...but I really do hope we get it together soon.
Miss you.

About that Mall Trip?
Wasn't that November 17th 2006?
Maybe I'm still hung over by all of Those Beer Balls.
Check out my photo of the trip.
You'll see it in the NYTimes, November 2006. Just go to,
and you'll see me with the bald spot with my back to the camera facing the entrance to the Mall.

And one more thing,
