Summer Hiatus, By the Way

I don't know if you noticed, but I'm on hiatus. To learn more about my hiatus, or hiati in general, check out Wikipedia's Hiatus page. If you don't want to learn about hiati, I can't help you. Go back to Russia.

Very weak article, that, Esther - nothing at all about voodoo or Papa Doc. A few pics of the local savages beheading chickens is not too much to ask, surely?

I sometimes think that the highly-paid professionals who staff Wikipedia are just a bunch of rank amateurs. No tenure for them, then...

You are entitled to a hiatus, but is your cat available in the meantime? I could use some information about my 401K...

My friend Dave wrote most of Wikipedia. He never completed the fifth grade, but he can knit lace. There’s an old saying in my family, “The true stature of a man is determined not by how many books he has read, but how many yards of delicate lace he can knit in the space of a week.” Of course, we also say, “When in Rome, something something blunt hedge clippers and a lawyer,” so be careful what you wish for.

Kristy, you’ll have to make an appointment with his assistant. Know, however, that his fees are outlandish, he has only 2 scruples, and he completes all business transactions in vehement Spanglish.

In my opinion, this is one of the Top 5 Hiati on the internet.

It certainly is, and do you know why? Because I have exacting standards. I’m going to win this thing. I didn’t come here to make friends - I came here to win. That's my goal. Winning. And after I win, I'm going to give back to the community: I'm going to purchase tiny saddles for all the raccoons in my neighborhood. That way, stoats can ride raccoons.
