Hiatus



Do you know how many ways there are to say "hiatus"?

There'll be a suspension of activities.

I'm taking a bit of a respite.

I'm getting a reprieve from all this.

Things are going into abatement.

I'm taking a break, eh.

There may be a gap in the continuity of my work.

Uh, oh, looks like there's going to be an interruption.

It's time for a little intermission.

Things are being put in abeyance for awhile.

I hate to leave you dangling like this.

Sorry for the inactivity.

Did you understand?  Did you get the hint?  Too subtle?

I'M TAKING A BLOGCATION!!!

Now do you get it? Yep, I'm taking a couple of weeks off from the computer, my blogs and my visits to my cyberspace pals.  Instead of the information highway I'll be hitting the local hi-ways and bi-ways (don't take that the wrong way!) and somewhere in there will be hopping a plane for BC wine country.

My dear wife's vacation's coming up and I'm going to devote several weeks to her...for a change.  Wish me luck.  This getting out and socializing with people face-to-face is bound to be hard at first.  Though, who knows.  I may come to like it.

See you in awhile.

I'm sad that you will be away for awhile, but glad you and Mrs. d are getting away together. Have a great 'blogcation'.

You will be missed!

Oh man! Real life strikes again! I'm gonna miss you and your funny posts wicked hard!

But have a wonderful time with the wifey-poo.

And regarding face to face interaction? One word: breath mints.

I guess that was two words, eh? Well I've never been a perfectionist or a good communicator.

hee hee hee

I'll miss you!
Have a nice time away! A little blogcation now and then is a good idea. (If the quality of my posts is in any indication these days, I think I'm in need of one pretty soon.) - G

Okay, you're allowed a vacation, but whatever you do, don't forget about the little people who love you out here in cyberspace! Have a wonderful trip, but hurry back! As Quirky said, we're gonna miss you wicked hard!

Alright Johnny boy. Have it your way. Just up and leave for beautiful country instead of staring at your keyboard. Boy, some people just don't get it. Have a great time though. Already looking forward to having you back.

I hate these real life intrerruptions! You are one of those people who leave a hole in the water....

Have a wonderful time! And don't forget to come back.... soonish! :)
Happy trails. I've been thinking of a blogcation myself -- not that we're going any where, but it's getting a bit busy here with visiting relatives and other house-hold things.

Enjoy B.C.

While I'll miss you and your puns, I sure hope you have a great blogcation. We'll be right here waiting for you. Well, we'll probably be hanging out at some other blog by the time you get back, but we'll totally come back to you once you're back. Have fun!

Have a great time *sniff* we're all really happy for you *sniff* and completely understand why you're abandoning us in this heartless manner *waaaaaaaaaaaahh*

:-) Have a good time!
Good luck, NoName. Personally, though, I find real people frightening. They're so...I don't know...so three dimensional. It's trippy.

Have fun!

I'll be in BC wine country this weekend. Well, I'll be in BC, and it seems like we always pass a winery when we run one of the kids to her friend's... so that counts... I think.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
