02/08/2005: How can we miss you...
James Wolcott used this perennially funny line of: "How can we miss you if won't go away" in a blog with the same name about Andrew Sullivan's recent announcment to cut back on his "must-read" commentary blogging site, The Daily Dish
I, myself, had to tell Mr. Sullivan this, in an e-mail note:
Beware of this blog virus: Apparently you have a chronic case:
You see...after five years of "casual" blogging you've now become "infected" with the most insidious of blog viruses...it has taken over your hypo-thalmus and co-opted your endorphine producing centers...giving you that "depressed, unsettled' feeling when you're not blogging. Cure: As yet unknown to medical science...but they're working on it. Until then...proceed cautiously...sudden withdrawal has been known to produce hallucinatory (God-like-complex) effects...but is rarely fatal. (*whew!*)
p.s. Your sweetie is right...You ARE a nerd... :-)
I feel the same way about CNN's "Cross-Fire," now that announced it's demise...yet simply won't Go Away!! Maybe another visit from Jon Stewart, perhaps...just to get those talking heads rolling over there at CNN.
Put it on your future list of things to "miss" from 2005. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
