Life Interrupted

(Please scroll below, or click on these updated posts: The Real Kennedy Curse, Florida's Official Pie, Immigration Hits Home)

Dear All:

You'll forgive the silence of late, but as you know, my home was engorged with workmen this week, re-doing my bathroom. It's been done, but now, a new complication has arisen -- a more personal one.

For these reasons, I will take a week off of blogging, to return anew next Saturday, 13th May, 2006, with -- God willing -- a fresher spirit.

My email is at your disposal, as ever.

  • Okay, I'll just figuratively sit down at your curb and wait for you.
    I would do it literally but that might freak you out :)

    Thanks, my dear Paul.

    Yes.

    But then, you'd never really do that if you knew it would freak me out. :)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Never. You should not know a moments distress in life.

  • Wow, that Romario is a fast operator...in Miami for a week, and already he's running off with veeb!

    Hope everything is okay.

  • I hope you quickly take care of this personal complication! I do not look forward to a week without Victoria! Yes, now the NBA playoffs are in full swing and the baseball season is warming up, but a whole week without your posts!!! Every morning I will check your site with anticipation hoping to see if you're back!

    Good luck and come back soon!

    It's been rough. I don't know how I'll come back on Saturday, but I will be here.

    Thanks for your concern and good wishes, Paul.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    I think our chum Tom actually mentioned that in an email (which I've been too dilatory to reply to...)!

    I had no idea. So he's moved down here?

    Hope everything is okay.

    Jim, I can't tell you how much that meant to me. Thanks...

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    It'll take time, I think. But everything in life, takes time.

    I do not look forward to a week without Victoria! Yes, now the NBA playoffs are in full swing and the baseball season is warming up, but a whole week without your posts!!!

    You and my dad should hook up. I can't get near our big TV when the Heat are playing (or should I say, losing...).

    Every morning I will check your site with anticipation hoping to see if you're back!

    Thanks, Jose! It's sentiments like that, so warm and full of hope, that keep me coming back.

    I better! I gots a blog to run up in here. :)

    Good luck and come back soon!

    Mwah! Gracias, Pepito!

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Hey is "Slithering Reptile" good, blogospherically-speaking?

    I forget. :)

  • Hey! I actually commented on Althouse's thread on European Union jokes.

    I hope people know Brussels is the most boring place on earth, else my joke will make no sense.

    Ah well. I'm here Wednesdays, Fridays, and for bat mitzvahs.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • 'Slithering Reptile' ain't bad, but it misses the prize of alitteration. 'Slithering Snake' is closer.

    :D

    I have no idea what that means. My bank account has been stripped of every sou and shekel to pay for a blown gasket. So my Florida Lifestyle has been badly damaged. *sigh*

    I have the luck of the dead when it comes to cars, Victoria. Sheer zombie luck!

    Found this while looking for something else: http://www.bkmarcus.com/blog/2005/05/la-bamba.html

    Are these lyrics a decent translation?

    I figgered you might get a kick outa them. ; ) Ole`!

    I suspected as much :)

  • You realize, Vickers, we're waiting for that other shoe to drop!

    We worry you will have to give up blogging for your studies.

    paul: they named that horrid little cabbage after the city - that's how bad Brussels must be!

  • Good point, Benning. I've never eaten the thing called a Brussel sprout. If they had any pride whatsoever, they'd change the town's name.
