The Last Friday

Friends, Republicans and enemies, lend me your ear…. or is it ears?

Okay, my Shakespeare sucks, if that even IS Shakespeare, however modified. But I don’t really want to borrow your ears, anyway.

Wait. What am I saying? If they’re in good shape, fairly small and don't protrude a lot, I would LOVE to borrow your ears. Ah, but then you’d probably want them back and I’d be no better off than before.
Okaynevermind.

What I really want to say is that I’m leaving The Nest.

















There.
I said it.
Whew! You have no idea what a load off that is!

If you are all nosy like Me! and would like a reason, please pick one:
A) Don’t have time.
B) No longer enjoying it.
C) Have to be too careful about what I say because someone, who shall remain nameless, has been reading my blog.
D) All of the above.


Not to worry, though. I will still be stalking many of you. And most likely leaving the usual disturbing comments. Mostly, I want to thank all of you for your bloggy love, support and understanding these last couple of years and especially for your ability to make me know that I am not the only crazy bitch in this world.

Sooooo, I guess I should just say
Peace, Love, Blog on………..
And who knows? I may even be back one day.

I mean, if ilovejoebiden.com isn't already taken.

What?! I just found you!! This is not okay!

Aw maaaan....

It's always the good ones that leave :(

Deedee said...

Nooooooooooooooooooo! Oh, alright-if you must. Here's a plan, start a new blog, don't tell your stalker, but leave the rest of us a comment with the link ;-)

I smell husbandly muskiness lurking.

DAMMIT!!

How come men always ruin the best fun for women??

OK, I'll accept that you're on hiatus. How's that???
Indefinite hiatus, even?
Just do come visit.
Sometimes, your comments are the best part of my blog.
Okay, LOTS of times, your comments are the best part of my blog.

Sheri and George said...

Damn this really upsets me Girl! I'm gonna miss you and your quirkiness! I enjoyed reading your blog and getting your pearls of wisdom. Please don't disappear for ever. Promise you'll visit once in a while.

Tracie said...

~jill said...

sad day....

i'll miss you. =(

Miss Thystle said...

can't you just take a break and then reblog with a new blog? And we could all pretend like we don't know you? Like when Clark Kent takes off his glasses and everyones all OMG! It's SUPERMAN only, it's SO obviously Clark?

In short, DON'T LEAVE.

Kat said...

Sorry - not ALLOWED. Just make a new one, I can't live without you........ seriously.

Eliza said...

Oh noooooooooooon i've only just found your blog :-(

Soxy Deb said...

Well that just sucks and so officially does this Friday now.
*sigh*

Laoch of Chicago said...

Ok I can quote Shakespeare too, "Parting is such sweet sorrow."

Anonymous said...

CRAP!!! That should cover it. Have a good one, Donene

Bev said...

Dang!! I hate it that you are leaving!! I hope that one of these days you come back to us. In the meantime, I wish you ALL the very best. Know that you WILL be missed!

Shanna said...

This makes me SO sad! But I get it. I do :(
You better come by and say hello (and keep my e-mail because I say so!)

*sigh* It's not going to be the same around here without ya...if you ever start up a different blog, please let me know, I love reading you :)

gail said...

If I could, I would give you one of my ears...

You will be missed, J.

Noanie said...

You will be missed, but I do understand. Hope life has some really good things in store for you because you totally deserve good stuff.
Be well. Peace

Joisey said...

I understand. Will you plz keep in touch with me?

Joy said...

I am SERIOUSLY going to miss your blog!!! It is the first one I check on my blogroll every day because I love hearing about your life (and frankly, you're hilarious) :) I wish you the best!

Domestic Goddess said...

WTH???? This is so not fair! I'm gonna throw an all out tantrum, dang it. I mean it. Holding my breath, wetting my pants and everything! Not nice, Jane. Not nice at all. *sniffle*

Better visit me. I mean it. *sulks*

kenju said...

This is SO not fair. I just found you a few weeks ago.

Jeankfl said...

Damn.. The funniest ones always get tired.. I agree, just take a break.. I want to see your moonflowers, though!!! Good luck, kiddo.
hugs,
Jean

Paige said...

I hate it when this happens. Blefh

Angie Ledbetter said...

Wishing you all the best life has to offer!

sis-mom-barbara said...

Your writing skills ought to be making you money. In my mother's generation Erma Bombeck made a career out of babbling about survival with her husband and children. Your observations on daily life speak so clearly for our generation to lighten the trauma of it all. I'll be anxiously waiting for you to publish your first of many books.

giggles said...

Im really gonna miss you...but I totally understand... I had to do the same thing

Suldog said...

Well, send SOME of us your new address, if and when, OK?

The Lady in Pearls said...

Dammit Jane! (That's right - I'm using both your first and middle names!) You sure picked a fine time to send me into a full blown mental breakdown. You know Wally is graduating soon, don't you? You know how close to the edge I am right now, don't you? Why does it always have to be all about you? What about US? We don't care if you don't like it anymore or don't have time. You have responsibilities Jane! **stomping feet** ............

The Lady in Pearls said...

Of course I didn't mean any of that. BUT it would be nice if you could, say post at least once a month. Couldn't you? You could, right? Come on Jane......

Somebody pass me the wine please!

Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

That's really too bad, but I understand. Blogging is hard work, and people who don't do it have no idea. And I too am not sure what I'd do if certain people found my blog...

I'll sure miss you...

Jan said...

I am not happy about this. Maybe you will reconsider. I mean how can you leave us??? We are so loveable.

Shana said...

What?????
Did I hear you right?
Or read you right, I mean?
Say it isn't so.
**cry, cry**

Lorrie Veasey said...

JANE! You put your shoes on and march right back to that keyboard missy. I mean it. Or no allowance. Or no dessert. OR NO COMPUTER FOR A WEEK.

Damn, it doesn't work wit my kids either.

You are one of my Very Favorite Writers and i will miss reading you, but I will come back and read old posts to hear your voice again. Good luck with real life.

And now you are free to fly.

j said...

Ah crap Jane! I just got back on line. Puter crash. Lost bunch of junk. Oh well, I'm back with a new one. Always take advantage of a good crisis. It's in the socialist hand book somewhere! You will be missed so, don't be gone too long! Stay in touch you crazy Youtahshegan.

TwiBitch said...

Oh no....no Jane to start my day? No Jane to provide chuckles with my coffee? What shall I do? This is a sad day indeed...to find that someone so talented and so funny in her writing has to stop writing. Not sure I'll get through the day now. But hey, to reiterate what others have already said....'don't go away permanently', just take a break. We all deserve a break from time to time. Then come back, email us all secretly with your new 'place' and we'll all follow.

I'll miss your witty wisdom Jane. Just know we'll all be watching for you. Take care.

Domestic Goddess said...

Still missing ya, hoping you either pop by my blahg or re-emerge in your own....Miss ya, Jane!

Something Happened Somewhere Turning said...

So sorry to hear that. You crack me up.

binks said...

Just poppin' by to say Hi Jane!

Hi JANE!!

DavidShag said...

It is Shakespeare, kind of, and Marc anthont says it in "Julius Caesar". Sorry you are leaving, although at lesast you are remaining alive unlike a couple of folks I used to read who left the blogiverse. Which is nice. And i can't imagine blogging under my real name, or using anyone I lnows real id so they can breathe over my shoulder and tell me it wasn't wenesday, It was Tuesday and the restauurant wasn't Scotty's it was The Cold Mackerel. If I wanted that, I'd have gotten married. All the best to you in your writing-free future...

Kat said...

This song is stuck in my head - "Baby Come Back..."

Lisa said...

Did we just get dumped?

Give us another chance!!
