Here here!

Hear, hear, even! :)

hear, hear, here, too.

hair hair!

Oops, sorry, that was my daily mantra to my scalp who is being most uncooperative these days...

I just want to say that I agree with everything you say. In addition, I, for one, have been glad to see you do more front page posting of late, even when you say things which make me want to pull my few remaining hairs out.

Please continue to do so. Pretty soon I won't need a comb at all.

Hear, hear, even! :)

Gah!

"I can't dispute that her success here was in the every sense of the word"

did a word fall out of that line? e.g.
"that her success here was [well-deserved] in every sense of the word"?

or was it originally, e.g.,
"that her [time] here was a [success] in every sense of the word"?

or maybe the syntax is fine and i'm just having trouble reading. again.

Kid -

It's a little awkward as I phrase it, perhaps. I'm using "success" in the second sense: That is, "her [time] here was a [success] in every sense of the word."

thanks, that helps me to understand.

and there's a fair chance that no one else had my problem anyhow.

I had it too fwiw

yeah, but i had it *bad*. real bad.

you just got a light case.

see, the difference is: i've got a *right* to sing the blues.

I hate it when the posters leave but I even miss regular commenters when they disappear, and usually without so much as a 'bye'. Though she won't be posting anymore, I will still be happy to have Hilzoy's comments which I think she said she would continue.

Hear here here!

The queen recedes.ObWi hasn't always been my favorite blog, but it has always been the one that I respect the most. I know little of Holzoy beyond her writing and bio, but have to say that on some level, I've always had a crush on the woman.

Good luck!

von: thanks. ;)

I believe there's a fine for not filing Form 37B-12: "Leaving ObWi As A Commenter For An Unspecified Amount Of Time Without A Reason Validated By ObWi Authorities."

We've got to make a greater investment in the Enforcement Bureau. Get some Blade Runners on it.

Speaking of Form 37B-12:

1) I haven't been reading every thread, but I haven't seen anything from bedtimeforbonzo lately. BTFB -- if you're out there, wave, would you?

2) Gary, your comment on the other thread about trying not to let the community dissolve was compelling. I am one of those who has been contemplating withdrawing (at least for a while), because I am also one of those who can't seem to take just one drink (whether it's sudoku, freecell, or blog-reading: 1-a-day, for instance, has never worked, I have to go cold turkey and stay away or I'm back in the soup)....

We'll see, I guess. Maybe I can figure out a rationing system that I will actualy then follow. ;)

"Gary, your comment on the other thread about trying not to let the community dissolve was compelling."

Thanks mostly kindly.

Since I'd selfishly like people to read it, and that thread is receding into the past, I'll point out that the comment JanieM refers to is here.
