To My Readers: Taking a Day Off

1 05 2008

Greetings all,

I’m taking the day off from work/blogging to make some repairs to my dance regalia, and see a doctor to figure out what the hell’s wrong with my left hip flexor.

Figure 1: These have caused permanent nerve damage in my shoulder

For readers old and new, feel free to enjoy/loathe these classic entries till the next post comes tomorrow:

Everytime we say goodbye, I cry a little…

I am now convinced, yet again, that I am psychic. Yesterday I was thinking how great the “Hip-Hop Scholars” post was, and wanted to suggest that you re-post it on a day that you couldn’t or didn’t want to write something new. Today- no new post. Why can’t I ever use my witchcraft to make me rich?

It’s May Day, May Day! Chris down!

Maybe you’ll meet a willing Ethiopian at the doctor’s office.

Fell better and take it easy. We’ll leave the light on for you.

@Lindsay, I know. Heee, but you’re supposed to hear that like it’s Kat Williams saying it.
(I know, he’s terrible, etc. but still, I die when he does Pimp Down.)

everyone needs some r and r and aB

I’m not happy about this, but I guess you do deserve a day off….and be sure you get that hip thing taken care of, hip replacement is no fun, ask Prince

Good morning, and to those on the east coast good afternoon!

noooooooooooooooooooooooo…the tragedy. feel better

I don’t know you but I wondered how you manage to maintain this site AND have time left over for all the things you say you do. Enjoy your day off — but your next post better make up for it!

1 05 2008

Hope everything is okay and you’re feeling better soon!

Reading your blog truly makes my day, and I often talk about you like we actually freakin know each other. (SMH @ myself)

Maybe I can use this day off for actual face-to-face human interaction? No fatties or Ethiopaians need apply.

sorry to hear you’re out of commission Chris. feel better & take care. your body is your temple and you only get one. 🙂

Why did I think “dance regalia” meant something dirty until I scrolled down to look at the picture? 😛

Did you get Chris confused with the 15 year old stripper named Sable? 🙂

Every time I read your angry rantings, I fall a little more in love with you. Sure I’m guilty of a few of the things you seam to hate in life, but it really doesn’t stop me from coming back.
So I’m a little disappointed you are taking a break. But I hope you come back soon… hopefully healthier… and a little angrier too.

1 05 2008

Good thing I wasn’t at work yesterday and didn’t get to read the post about Ethiopians. So for me, its like you were never gone. I hope you feel better. When’s the next Pow Wow?

I haven’t read the comments on Ethiopians yet, but did anyone explain just how they got a nationwide monopoly on the parking garage industry?

1 05 2008

Enjoy your break Chris. I think I will go enjoy the white supremacy posts.

1 05 2008

Dear Chris,
Thank you for taking a day off. I miss you but am grateful for the break.

1 05 2008

feel better…i won’t be laughing as much today…

1 05 2008

Don’t lie Chris — you’re really not a good liar anyway.

We know the real reason you’re injured. And it’s not your hip. Next time spend a little less time on that* picture.


1 05 2008

Christ do you impress me, how do you get this many comments and you are taking a day off?

Where did you get your readers from? Do not tell me you are hiring India call centre workers to write comments.

I hope yo hip falls off and yo back blows up.

1 05 2008

Aww man I seriously miss you for one day. And I got 5 times as much work done today as yesterday. You’re messing up my livlihood here(it can’t possibly be my fault not working hard).
Hope you feel better

what’d i tell you about anal sex with a guy w/ a bent penis.


1 05 2008

too funny I was able to finish yesterday’s work, being that I got minimal done yesterday. Thank you for taking a day off. Hope all is well!

Wow, youre a dancer! Ive been to a few of the pow-wows held in this area (yeah, I know, theyre not “real”) and Ive wondered if there are any places to take lessons in traditional Native American dancing in the DC/MD/VA area? I used to study dance in college, and Id love to try my hand at Native American dance.
