Lately Peevish

I'd like to thank the readers and especially the commenters, most of whom lent an amazing distinction to an otherwise undistinguished production.

I've learned a great deal in the last two years. As usually happens, I learned the most when I started out being the most wrong. Those of you who had occasion to correct me have earned my gratitude. Those of you who had occasion to agree with me have inflated my ego. Those of you who stopped by to add a flavoring of wing-nut to the proceedings have amused me. From where I'm sitting, it was an all-around great party.

As of now, this political blog is on indefinite, probably permanent hiatus. (Feel free to alter your blogrolls accordingly.)

Thank you.

You forgot those of us who nominated you for best-designed blog in the Koufax Awards. :^)

Yours is a voice I'll miss, Anne, despite my irregular visits (which is my norm everywhere).

Let me know when you return. And best of everything to you, till then.

Sorry to see you go.....

Boy, I'm going to miss you. You're one of the very best.

Sad you're giving up on the blog. Any reason why? Some personal project you're pursuing?

Happy life beyond the blogosphere. I've enjoyed your work, and have appreciated your support. Peace.

Visiting your blog was like settling down in a comfortable library and finding solace in the company of a good book. I'll certainly miss it.

:( :( :(

I'll miss the hell out of you, Anne. Follow your bliss, and drop me a line if you ever change your mind and come back...

Thanks, Anne.

I should have thanked you all before for the kind remarks. Thank you.

I have some other things I'm working on right now. Other hobbyhorses to ride :) that are taking up most of my spare time. But I enjoyed blogging and most of all I enjoyed talking with so many intelligent and well-informed people!

You're all amazing.

Good luck and all that, but I'm really unhappy to lose you. I loved this blog.

Thank you for being a catalyst for some interesting and always thought provoking discourse. I wish you the best in your newest pursuits.

Thanks for your contributions; I enjoyed reading your work. Peevish will stay on the BBWW blogroll with (hiatus) next to it so that you'll have a place at the table if you come back.

This has been bothering me, sort of subtly, for a while now.

So, I'd like to thank Kevin for his kind words about nominating this blog for a design award (no one tells me anything...I had no idea!) but I need to point out that I didn't design it.

http://www.sekimori.com/ did the design. (It is gorgeous, isn't it?)

Also, once again, let me thank everyone who has been kind enough to leave a note here. I do appreciate the good thoughts.

(For anyone wondering, no, there's nothing wrong. I just decided to spend some time living without my fingers glued to a keyboard!)
