In Which I Remain Secretive

As I had mentioned not too long ago, The Boss and I are taking a few days of vacation during the first week of September. Since we don't often get more than one day off in a row together, we are busy making plans for those days so we don't sit at home asking each other "What do you want to do?" "I don't know, what do you want to do?" over and over again.

With recent events included, The Boss and I have been through a lot in recent months and are long overdue for some quality time. I want to make sure I give her my undivided attention during our days off together, so I'll be taking a brief hiatus from blogging during that time. Since I care about you, and so you can plan ahead and pencil in some withdrawal therapy sessions into your calendar, I'll let you know now that I'll be gone from Thursday, September 4th through Tuesday, September 9th, and I'll be resuming my blogging on Wednesday, September 10th.

Now, before you think I'm going to be leaving you hanging high and dry for just about a full week with no new posts to read, I'll let you know what I have something lined up.

I'm not going to tell you what it is, so don't ask. You'll just have to wait and see.

It'll be like Christmas, when your parents teased you by putting perfectly wrapped and really huge presents under the tree three weeks before you get to open them.

Minus all the papercuts.

I hope you two really enjoy your time off.

So...What's the surprise, what's the surprise?

Now I have that Heinz ketchup commerical with 'Anticipation' playing in the background stuck in my head.

Oh nooo! I'm dreadful at surprises. The tension is mounting already. Tell us, please....I can't bear the suspense.

You are such a cheeky chap! ;-)

I'm with employee no. 3699 in wishing you and The Boss all that you wish yourselves for your well deserved break.

Ah the suspense!
You and The Boss certainly deserve time together and time away. Unplugged is good sometimes. It refreshes the soul and UNjades you from life.

I hate surprises!

Employee No 3699: *singing* I'm not telling!

Scatterbrain: You'll have to wait until next week!

Moonspun: We are definately looking forward to some time together.

Meg: I'm sorry. Doesn't mean I'm going to tell you what it is, though. =)

Oh great! I have just become hooked on your blog and your stopping for a bit. There's a surprise as well. Now I'm stressed.

But in all seriousness, have lovely vacation. Relax, have fun and "eat lots of sandwiches"!

Cheers!!

Moonspun said...

Wait and who really gets papercuts from Christmas presents???!!!

enthalpymama said...

I LOVE surprises. I love surprises so much that you could leave my Christmas presents unwrapped in my own closet and I wouldn't look. No, I'm serious. I can't wait - and I love it.

Have an awesome time.

Here's a little something I found and thought of you - hope you haven't seen it before. It combines two of your likes - Metallica's "Whiplash" perform by .......a Lego band! I know. Amazing!

Cape Cod Gal: I'm only stopping for a few days. I'll be back, I promise!

Moonspun: I've gotten numerous papercuts from opening Christmas presents. My mother uses really thick wrapping paper.

Enthalpy Mama: If you love surprises, then this one should be great for you.

Scatterbrain: That's awesome! Some people have a little too much time on their hands.

Tease.

Just bring us back something.

scatterbrain said...

Agreed....but I bet you watched it anyway!

Lola said...

Could the secret be that you're going to have little old me pose as a geek gone bad and guest post for you? That's it, isn't it? Isn't it?

Badass Geek said...

Always Home: What's your t-shirt size?

Scatterbrain: You know, I did. It was great.

Lola: I'll never tell.
