goodbye cruel world

i liked it here, but i can't stay any longer. i have maybe 25 readers, most institutionalized. i tried to tell zonk this would not be far reaching, but he is going to be missing my weirdness, as you all are. all i can ask is that you fill the great void that i'll leave when i exit the blodgosphere with absolute crack grade gibberish. do it for me, freaks, it's what i'd have done if i could only have lasted just one more day.

truth is, this blown eyed blodging can be some rough business as I've recently found. i need a break, a permanent one.

please, drop me an email, especially you, lurky lou. maybe i'll hook you up with my new digs, should i find some.

until then, y'all be good.

You bettah tell me whutchu mean by this or I will have to get all truculent on yo' Texan ASS (it would not be the first time, as I have been making friends by my exacting threats right 'n left this week). I have learned one thing from youse and that is that nothing ever is as it seems. So...start talkin', mamacita. Cookie wantsa help.

I know what's going on. We will talk about this at Blodger de Mayo and we will get it fixed. It is not the end of the world and it is not as bad as you think.

Just keep writing and you will get more readers and if you don't, who cares, you write for yourself. Take care and have a nice day, Cat

Baby, Come back
Any kid of fool could see
I was wrong
And I just can't live without you!

Posted by: Holder at April 26, 2007 04:26 AM

Shoe, don't you dare pull a V-Man on us. Knock dat shit right off...and listen to Denny.

We loves ya, kiddo. If all this bloggy bidnis has taught me one thing, it's that us blown-eyes stick together. Even if there may appear to be a rough spot.

Take a break if you need to...but you ain't walking away Kaiser Söze Permanente that easy.

Posted by: Elisson at April 26, 2007 09:17 AM

I'll see you next week. In the meantime, big hugs to you and the boys!

What, what, What? "In best southparkesqe way . . ."

Keep me posted.

What they said. You know I have been a loyal follower of the chou chou church from almost the begining, and to close the doors now would just be a shame. Take some time, but reconsider.

Posted by: Hoosierboy at April 26, 2007 11:50 AM

awww crap.


Posted by: caltechgirl at April 26, 2007 12:23 PM

Aw, Shoe... Just throw 'er in neutral for a while, let life take its course, and c'mon back whenever. Quittin' is fer quitters!

Also, tell Donnie, Yabu and I who's griefin' ya next weekend, and we'll settle their hash.

Posted by: El Capitan at April 26, 2007 01:38 PM


We will straighten out this situation.

And it isn't an institution, it is a voluntary-enrollment clinic that happened to have sleeping accomodations.

Posted by: RSM at April 26, 2007 03:18 PM

Sic her RSM...

Shoe - NOOOOOoooooo!
Of course I understand that there is more to life than blogging, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO....

Colour me sad. :(

Posted by: Chickie at April 26, 2007 05:24 PM

Be good.

Posted by: dick at April 26, 2007 06:06 PM

Or at least be good at it.

Posted by: Richard at April 26, 2007 08:20 PM

But... but... We were gonna have butt sex!

Posted by: Velociman at April 26, 2007 08:40 PM

Posted by: Karen at April 27, 2007 07:04 AM

Don't go!

I'm even coming out of Lurk for this!

Come on- everyone goes through a slow time....and if I had the ability to head south of the Red River for the weekend, I would be there Cinco de-Blogger as well.

If you ever head north, give me a holler! OKC loves Chou!

Posted by: Rave at April 27, 2007 08:43 AM

C'mon... Two dead blogs from you in my roll is 1 too many... Take some time, as much as you need. Then, get your hind end back here and get to work!

Posted by: RedNeck at April 27, 2007 08:44 AM

What?? I was here the other day and all was blank - I thought my computer had some sort of issue... This can't be right.

I vote no closing the Chou Chope.

Posted by: Richmond at April 27, 2007 01:25 PM

As Mom always used to say, "The moment my back is turned..."

Hope to see you round the corner.

Posted by: Bob at April 27, 2007 01:54 PM

Damn I haven't even gotten a chancec to meet you in person yet. But do what you gotta do chica. I will always laugh when I hear bragadocious thanks to you, and people will look at me strange. Well hack on fellow cedar hacker. Meet ya'll next sabado!

Posted by: kerrcarto at April 27, 2007 03:50 PM

I hope this doesn't mean we won't see you in 8 days!!!


Posted by: Nancy at April 27, 2007 09:13 PM

Hey - I just didn't want to leave it at 25 comments and support her stance of only 25 readers.

If Denny sez it'll be okay, I trust him. And Chou is no fool - esp if she managed to avoid the Velocibutt treatment.

Until next time...take care.

Posted by: LauraN at April 27, 2007 10:48 PM


You can't do this to me! I need your goofy posts. I need you Shoe! Don't leave me alone here in this big, bad blogosphere.........

Posted by: Tammi at April 29, 2007 06:39 AM

Goodness, now it's you and RSM. I just don't know what to make of you two crazies. OK, I'll fess up...it's not like I didn't do it myself, once before, but still...when are you gonna come out 'n play? Ya know, weeze is gonna be mud-wrasslin' in a few days. Loser has to come out of bloggy retirement. By all estimates, I'm thinkin' that that's gonna be you. Have a happy day! It's almost Friday!

Posted by: Erica at April 29, 2007 10:17 AM

I see plenty of readers in this comment thread. Come on. I like your humor-infused style. Can't you just neglect your blog for a few weeks at a time and then come back? You know, like I do?

Posted by: Key at April 29, 2007 11:17 AM

This song's been stuck in my head since reading this shoeicide note...

Posted by: That 1 Guy at April 29, 2007 01:00 PM

Institutionalized? Is that where I am? In a frickin' institution? Jesus Christ. And they told me I was just a Mom with three crazy frickin' kids. I had no clue... but should have suspected. I actually feel kind of better knowing this is an institution. It makes it more tolerable...

Posted by: Bou at April 30, 2007 08:55 PM

please, no!

Posted by: marcus at April 30, 2007 09:50 PM

Christ, you people and your posting deficiencies are driving me nuts...between you, RSM, and V-Man, I'm ready to give all of youse the frickin' Super Mega Noogies.

Posted by: Erica at May 2, 2007 05:49 PM

Ahhh, Shoe -- no mi gusto!! I get busy w/ work and some sewing (yeah, I guess that could count as institutionalized) for a week and come back to this?
I LOVE your writing ... can't you just pull a Key and go on hiatus for a while? Sniff, sniff.

Posted by: Marianne at May 5, 2007 02:30 PM

Hi, it was nice meeting you. You did a great job putting everything together.

Be sure and send me a heads up when you move your blog.

Posted by: hammer at May 6, 2007 04:06 PM

Okay, vacations over, did the blogmeet (nice to meetcha!) and all that.

Time to cozy up to the keyboard again.

Or I won't send you any cops.

Yes, please, do something....it's just too depressing to come here and see nothing. I'm starting to think it's all been just a crazy dream. Texas and all. :(

Posted by: Erica at May 13, 2007 07:39 AM

knock knock
anybody home?

Posted by: holder at May 14, 2007 02:52 PM

Yeah, where's shoe-baby????

Posted by: Kelly at May 15, 2007 12:44 PM

I thought I would leave you yet another warm 'n' fuzzy comment, just to let the world know (or those who still hold out hope against hope that yer coming back) how seriously loved you are. :-)
