And Now, An Announcment

Effective midnight, I’m taking ten days off from the Internet.

Because I want to, that’s why.

The Fabulous Kate Baker has the Mallet while I’m gone. Heed her.

I may schedule some really old stuff here to keep you amused while I’m away. Be afraid.

Oh, and some Big Ideas. Don’t be afraid of those.

See you later. Behave. Thanks.

  1. Yay, a substitute! I love subs; so much easier to get away with mischief. Just kidding. Promise.
    *hands suspiciously typing behind back…waves*
    Have a great vacay! :-D

  2. Behave? Us? Come on John, that line doesn’t work at home, you think it’ll work here? It would be easier to set up a DDoS (or claim a DDoS) than get good behavior. Someone will be swinging from the chandelier by midnight.

  3. bad movies about the insect world made in the 70s.

    There were other kinds?
    There can’t be quizzes. I only skimmed the material!

  4. Thank god that guy and his giant ego are finally taking a break. I mean is it just me, or has been getting hard to breath in here or what?

    What?

    What do you mean he’ll read these posts when he gets back?

    crap

    What I mean is, “Ten days with out new Scalzi? Eek! What are we supposed to do?”

  5. Bruce Diamond – Flyover Land on the teeming Mississippi River – Despicably proud old man. Text-extruding asshole (thank you, John Scalzi) with a skewed vision on life, pop culture, writing and general assholiness. Not a scholar, not a gentleman, not Martin or Lewis. But still trying to make life fun and funny.

    You do realize that *those people* are going to claim you’re running away from *that guy*, right? Right?

  6. He’s here until midnight. Then it’s “Gypsies in the Palace” / Jimmy Buffett and I’m out of here — remember to be good, or to be very careful!

  7. I don’t know. I mean, I can’t speak for the character. It just seems like, well… I just don’t think Gamma Rabbit ought to be malleting kittens. Individually, or by the basket. It just doesn’t seem right, somehow.

  8. I… FUCK! NO Scalzi for 10 days… this better involve Wive/Daughter/Pets. Otherwise, I’ll have to break out Durgbane’s Fleet Crossbow of Healing Smite. You got NO idea what that can do.

    p.s. took a week long break from internet and cell phone at Christmas/Winter Solstice/Fookin’ break for work… didn’t even notice they were gone thanks to an Irish redhead of female proportions. Hope your break is at least 50% as fun as mine.. you’ll be swinging from the fence posts if it is.

    Dwight Williams? Legends APA Dwight Williams? My, it’s a small world. Hiya. (No idea if you remember me or not.) Hope you’re doing well.

  10. And the fact that these 10 days happen to coincide with a certain week-long geek entertainment-centric annual event is just a coincidence, is it?

  11. I pity those poor fools who seem to need to worship at the altar of scalzi and depend on some opine or snark for their survival. It’s a scalzipocalypse

    Who had 13 hours and 9 minutes in the pool? John tweeted a pic of a rabbit-shaped cloud at 1:09 pm Eastern Time today (2/9/13).

  13. Bruce, it is indeed me. It took about two seconds to place your name once I saw it this morning. You now know “where” to find me if you want to talk directly!

  14. Enjoy your break! I’m hopeful that when you return you’ll be inclined to answer the following questions:
    1) Does ‘no internet’ really mean ‘NO internet’? Or just some subset thereof? (Which is…?)
    2) How long did you actually go before you broke whatever internet restrictions you set on yourself?
    3) In the interim, what did you do with all of that free time?
    4) Anything in particular prompt this internet detox, or was it just time?
