To discuss a summer break so I can sing

I popped the question to Capricorn last night.

...


... No, not that question. Geez, it's been 8 months. This isn't The Hills.

I asked her if I would be better off taking a blog break for the next few weeks, until the end of the show, because I feel like I haven't been able to do nearly as much as I want to lately on here.

She responded, "Yeah, you've kind of been half-assing it."

No one can blame her for not being upfront.

But, she's right-ish. I'd rather do it all the time, with great posts, than just a little here and there, and without time to give all the feedback and check back on other blogs like everyone deserves.

So, I'm doing a hiatus, and will likely come back after the show is done around the end of June (and life is settled down), with lots of photos, and hopefully video, to display. Then, the plan is to pick up full steam, like Michael J. Fox on the Back to the Future III train.

I'll cross my fingers that all of you return by that point, or at least that I can restore some goodwill and convince people to come back, possibly through extortionbegging. Please call me names for abandoning you, if that feels therapeutic. Or call me names for faking you out on the engagement thing.

In the meantime, let me know if you've written your own iTunes Top 10 Embarrassing Songs Post. I think everyone needs to air their dirty music laundry.

m not going to call you names Andy - i've been MIA from blog on and off for a month or so two.

However, poo to you on the engagement joke. Just so's you know, that stuff doesnt just happen on The Hills. My dad proposed to my mum on their 2ND DATE - and they've been happily married for 27 years.

My parents rule!

Ok, also, ignore my grammatical error up there ^. Of course, that should read " a month or so TOO ".

Duh.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

WHAT??? Have I been gone for that long???
What show?? I gotta catch up.

Just let us know when you're baaackk!

FunnyGal KAT said...

Noooooooo! I GUESS I understand your reasoning, but I'm not happy about it. Now I'm going to have to read Cosmo and Maxim, and watch terrible television myself?!?

And the engagement trick was so unfair, I hope Capricorn gives you the same answer when you do actually pop the question ("Yeah, you have been half-assing it lately.") Ha!

WuTang said...

ah bummer. I'll keep checking back. You won't be forgotten!

Srg said...

Ok - that's it! After this performance is done, no more singing engagements for you for the rest of the year!

Unless they involve you prancing on stage in a snuggie. Or you make it to Broadway. In either event I plan to be there in person for those!

Heather said...

We'll definitely be here when you get back! Good luck with your performance... and come back with pictures!!

Turd.

There. I'm glad I got it off my chest. Enjoy the hiatus. Don't work too hard.

P.S. This kid Doug I went to Penn State with - and worked at a newspaper in State College with as well - just got a photo internship with your paper. Be nice to him. Ha.

Diane said...

You big lazy loser.

But I still love you. I'll be back.

Even if you are a big lazy loser.

Jenners said...

Well, if a boys gotta sing, a boys gotta sing. Have a good summer! See you in the fall???

Kellie said...

I will only call you names if you don't come back at the end of June. Until then, best wishes, good luck and we will miss you! :)

BeckEye said...

I don't know what show you're talking about either! I'll have to catch up also.

Have a happy hiatus.

Children of the Nineties said...

Sad about the hiatus, but I do have something for you on my blog. Let me know when you will be back in the blog world!

Andy said...

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, except for those who related me to poop.

As for the show: I'm doing "Sound of Music."
See this post for details...

You do what you think is right *sob*...

I like your header by the way. How long has it taken me to notice it?

hautepocket said...

It's hard being famous, isn't is?

I wouldn't know; I'm just speculating.

I read this post right before I went to bed last night and then I had a dream about you, shhhh, don't tell Capricorn. In this dream, you looked a lot like you did near the ends of the semesters at school, so I'm figuring you look like the walking dead now. So, take a break, do what you love and we'll be here when you get back! Break a leg!

spleeness said...

Will you at least twitter???

Sorry. That was selfish. Enjoy your break and hurry back when you can.

JenBun said...

Break a leg, love!!!

I'm sad that I am coming back to being an attentive blogger just in time for you to take a break, but it sounds like you need... you're a busy boy!

Be sure to stop by (or email or tweet or send a carrier pigeon) when you're back, but I'll be checking in!!! :)

Marinka said...

Shouldn't you be asking us? Or is that when you ask Capricorn that other question that we get to weigh in?

Enjoy your break. I'll wait right. here.

Anna Lefler said...

OMG, I totally get what you're saying. (In other words, I can relate.)

Not to worry - we'll be here for you. In fact, now that I see your FeedBurner box, I'm subscribing right now so I'll know when you're back in the saddle.

In the meantime, take care and be well 'till we blog again...

XO

Blog breaks are needed for everyone at some point. Plus it is better to tell everyone you are on a break or else people will start blowing up your email and phone thinking you are dead. But at least it is nice to know bloggers care.

Enjoy the break but come back soon.

Racquel Valencia said...

I support it. When real life gets in the way of bloggering, only the mosy stony-hearted of us don't commiserate.

My father also proposed to my mom on the second date, but it's kind of been a study in what not to do ever since.

I've been slacking too...I feel so guilty.

And no..I didn't post my own itunes embarrasing list cause I'm about a month late to this post.


But I'm here.
