I'm Doug...

One of my favorite characters on one of my favorite comedy sketch shows--Doug, on The State--used the tag line "I'm Doug...and I'm outtaaa heeeerrreeee!" when he wasn't sure what else to say. Since I really enjoy humor that beats a dead horse, I laughed and laughed each time Doug goofed on his Dad or tried to outsmart his teacher.

Today, I sort of feel like Doug.

It's a bit pretentious to say it, but I'm starting to feel something less than relevant. (And that's pretentious, of course, because the response to the question that feeling raises is: "As if.") Aside from my rants on Oprah, what I write here isn't important, or life-altering. But I do enjoy telling stories, writing about insights and describing how movies and current events affect my perspective.

But recently, I just got nothing to say.

So, I'm outtaaa heeeerrreeee for a while. It might be a couple of weeks, I don't know, but I need a respite. I'm certain I'll be back, though, when I have something to say.

Maybe you're more like Ah-nold..."I'll be baaack!"

And- I think you're relevant.

TFG, if it gets you back any sooner, your blog is so fun to read that...

I wanna dip my balls in it!

Looking forward to you coming back after the recharge.

Things are getting bad in blogsville - at least the ones I enjoy. Sad. :-( Pretty soon, I'm going to have to read the instructions on hanging a roll of toilet paper again... I'm running out of GOOD reading. Take care, FG and come back soon, kay?

Everybody goes to the mat eventually. I've gone a couple of times myself. It's necessary.

Enjoy the break. It's well deserved.

Ian: That made me laugh for the longest time! Thanks.

ETW and Bill: Look out for lots of new comments from me on your blogs. And thanks.

FG: How can you be less then relevant when your blogging about recent movies. LOL

Come back soon.

Don't forget to grow a "bloggin' sabbatical" beard. And don't shower either. After a month or so you'll have plenty to blog about!

:D

Ian C. said...

Yeah, you have to grow a beard with a sabbatical. Them's the rules.

The Film Geek said...

Hey Jackie and Ian: It's already two days in, guys! (The beard and the non-shower...)

Nothing wrong that a good hot dog won't cure. Call me and it'll be my treat.

Take a shower first. No, really. You don't have to shave, but take a shower.
