Aloha

I have become a delinquent blogger. That means it is time for me to say farewell. Yes, it is time. It’s a lot to say goodbye to, there are my readers, my blog friends and Dr. No. All deserve a worthy send-off. I don’t know how to do it. It has been a fabulous ride. What can I say? I started Acadamnit, and like all bloggers, wondered if anyone would ever read it. Then I wondered what if people do read it but they are all weirdos? What if I am outed? How would my colleagues react? Can I really obscure my identity? Can I tell anyone that I blog? Fortunately the answers turned out to be:

Yes, people do read it. No, they are not all weirdos. Maybe a couple of weirdos, but overall some very clever people that never cease to make me laugh out loud and have led me to feel “close” in that strange blog relationship kind of way to them. Nope, I have not lost my anonymity. If someone knows who I am- I am not aware of it. Eeew, my colleagues would be PISSED. Yes, I have been able to keep my identity obscured. I have often been tempted to include more personal information…in particular, information that would identify my profession. Have I told anyone that I blog? Yes, one person. One person who is forbidden to ever follow or comment. With this exception, Dr. No and Acadamnit are my little secrets.

Thank you for reading. I will miss this. Feel free to begin preparing the festschrift, perhaps a special edition of Plow Science?

    I will raise a glass of scotch... whenever I can afford it.

    Take care, Dr. No! Thanks for the healthy dose of funny snark.

  19. Well, damn. Please leave the blog up, or when that issue of Plow Science is done we'll have nowhere to send it. Thankyou for the amusement, good luck with the real world meanwhile. I doubt we will ever meet, but if we ever do, mention Cheetos and leave me to wonder, at least...

  23. Damnit! I will miss you and your tweed, and your scotchcicles, and your parties, and your most excellent sense of humor. Of course I'm doing a farewell herky in your honor (we really did get a lot of mileage out of that herky/leotard conversation, didn't we?).

    Thanks for all the fish. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  24. Parting is such exquisite suffering... Wait - wrong blog.

    I'll miss your humor, Dr. No. You and your loyal followers got to be addicting like a really good TV series. Your well-written posts made me laugh out loud more times than not. Never knew what you were gonna rag on next. I loved the lawn-mowing neighbor rant Ha!

    What will you use as an outlet now? Kick boxing? Voodoo dolls?

    Best Wishes in real life. We would all chip in to send a case of scotch and a crate of Cheetos to get you through if you give us your address... Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I still remember the first post of yours that I read. It was the reptile brain post about early a.m. classes. I almost choked on my Cheetos when I read it.

    I'll think of you often, like when I eat Cheetos, see tweed, or watch font dramas unfolding (like the GAP kerfluffle). I would think of you when I drink, but I'm a gin woman, and you drink Scotch, so there you go.

    Aloha and Mahalo!

  27. Ack! Now that instruction's over, I set aside this evening to sit by the fire and catch up on a semester's worth of posts--never imagined they wouldn't be there. You will be missed, Dr. No. Many thanks. I'll think of you at the next class-scheduling meeting, and all next term in the (sab)bat cave.

  29. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
