What a pretty and poetic way to look at things.

But we're marking all the boxes. Just to be sure.

Thanks to everyone who's still stopping by.

Enjoyed reading you from this side of the Atlantic, Anne (yes you did have at least 1 western european reader. Made me feel special :) )
Good luck with whatever's next !

Sorry to hear you're ending this. It's been good to see your writing again and to read about the adventures of Plosh, Minitaur, Milkula and the gang. I hope your new exploits turn out well.

Geehem: A belated welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for de-lurking and best to you in all your blog-surfing.

Bob K: Dang, you've no idea how much I miss Fla. I'll trade earthquakes and vapid blondes for hurricanes and geezers anyday.

Hope you're still taking good care of the 'glades for me.


Anne, I think we're all of a mind that cyberspace will be a poorer place without you. Good luck though.

Many thanks, Adrian. Best to you too.

Inland Empress, I hardly knew ye! I look forward to a new blog someday. Till then, best wishes and happy travels.

Many thanks, Lilit. And all the best to you as your writing career rapidly advances.

hey there -- I guess i'm late on the saying bye thing -- just had a few minutes and wanted to catch up with various friends. I've always been amazed at your ability to blog brilliantly as well as do the mom and wife thing. Take care and lemme know where you land.

hey Anne - Sorry to see you're closing up shop. I recently started a Pomona mom's blog, and your blog was the only other local blog I could find. My blog is so new, that the lack of sleep I'm getting is still outweighed by the satisfaction. We'll see how long that continues...I'll continue to enjoy Book Buds.

Hello Anne,

I just stopped by following some train of thought that's now gone. And I see that I'm a couple of months too late.

So, you stop blogging as I try again to start. Which only means that in a year or two, you'll be back somewhere, somehow,

You once wrote me kind and helpful words when I was flapping about, gasping. I'm still inordinately grateful for that.

Best wishes, and feel free to keep in touch now and then. I'd like that.

Dear Goddess: Nice site! Keep it up. I'll be leaving the area soon but it's nice to know there's another Inland Empire blogger. Also check out Ontario Empoblog; he writes about, oh, I dunno, just about everything.

Andrew: Will do. I'll be checking out your new site too. Welcome back to the blogosphere.

Lose an empress, but find a goddess. I'll check that blog out.


I really enjoy the way this blog was written. In fact (not to sound like an ad) If I were you I would go to http://www.autosurfmonster.com and submit this blog so thousands of others can see it for free. well, I look forward to all the updates, Thanks again.

about me

  • It is good to be the Empress
    ... but, y'know, it's kinda hectic. I blog when I can. Right now, my day's divided this way: keep kids from screaming (8 hrs); keep son from killing daughter (6 hrs); avoid diet (4 hrs); sleep (2 hrs); lay awake fretting (2 hrs); give up and Web surf for a while (1 hr); think about waking hubby for sex (1/2 hr); ponder my career options (15 mins); shudder, begin blog post (15 mins); resume efforts to keep kids from screaming ...
