I know what you are thinking. "How can I live without a new post for the next week or more?" It will be difficult for sure. Along with throngs of other people, you have come to depend on the wit and insight of Apropos of Nothing. It has made you the hit of your office holiday party. It has made you slimmer and given you more energy. It has been the highlight of your 2008. Knowing this has made my decision to take a little time away, a difficult one indeed.
This coming week will be hard, but you can do it. You can be brave. You can be inventive. I have faith that you will fill this void. Perhaps you should pick up a book or something. Or get together with friends. What about cleaning out the attic like you keep saying you will? Maybe you could write your family letters, real letters that you send through the mail, letters that tell them how much you love them and miss them. They would love that.
It is going to be a very difficult time I know, but when life hands you lemons, make lemonade. Start a new project or pick up some new job skills. Learn a new language. And while you keep yourself busy, rest assured that Apropos of Nothing is having a really terrific time and has never felt better. Apropos of Nothing is getting some much needed rest and adventure and wishes that you were here! But since that is impossible, try to make the best of a difficult situation. We will be together again soon.
And check back in a week or so, for AoN 2009.
Have a Happy New Year
Apropos of Nothing
P.S. You may be wondering what Apropos Nothing is. That was the name of this blog before the great experiment of changing the name every day took place. After that experiment the blog name changed to what you have grown to know and love, Callithump Thunderblog.
