A Farewell

As you may have noticed, this blog is in a bit of a decline. Perhaps it’s an inevitable result of the growing sense of familiarity I feel with you friendly internet-people, making me lax with my posts; perhaps it’s because I’ve got other things to worry about. Regardless, it can only go on for so long. I quit. Like so many bloggers have done before.

For me, it’s been a good experience, and I hope it’s been a good ride for you guys as well. Of course, since I won’t be using the web space anymore, I’m open to suggestions for what to do with it – anyone need hosting? Obviously charity cases are preferred, though my old roommate has a stunning preliminary workup for “Florapolis: the center of the aquarium plant community”. Little seaweeds and yellow fishy stuff like that. Send me an email.

[Updated 4/2/02: Look at the date on this post. Then read the first letter of each sentence. Then try to find the other clues – there’s only two, and one is so lame it barely even counts, it’s more of a so-brief-as-to-be-rude nod to the French.]

    Gack! I’m keeping you on my sidebar for a while yet, just in case you decide to come back… Sigh. I’ll miss your daily weirdness, really I will.

    Unexpected this is. And unfortunate. Miss you I will.

    I occasionally wonder what I’ll find to read when the many and varied students among my A-list must-read bloggers grow up and get lives and stuff. But I won’t be in the least bit grateful if this turns out to be the start of the process of finding out.

    Is this fooling, or is it not…?

    Yes, it was fooling… I’m not that surprised no one caught the crostic (read the first letter of each sentence) but I hoped someone would get the anagram. *pout*
    Next year, I’ll try to be funnier, I promise

    Does it worry you at all that nobody bothered to contradict “…this blog is in a bit of a decline.”?

    Bah… I hadn’t even remembered it was April Fool’s day. And no one did anything good. Bleah.

    Kat, did you read the Register’s spoof on AOL buying up blogs? I thought the “absurd corporate purchase” theme was a bit overdone this year, but this particular instance was just too precious for words. Kind of like cuddly crucified Easter bunnies.

    Florapolis… I feel so stupid.

    Got any pics? I can offer a pic of a crucified Winne the Pooh (if I can find it) in exchange.

    The Onion does an annual Easter kids’ page… crucified bunny, hoppity jesus.

    Hee hee. Well, for what it’s worth, the basic April Fools element didn’t throw me, although I too failed to catch the crostic. Big pat on the back to you, though. You’re very clever.
    Hm. Maybe you need to trade in your current readership for a smarter (or at least more observant) crop…?
