This is the last post for the CTO Project. I hope to move my musings to a more public blog with clearer association with my work: I think that would be most useful for the long term. I will miss you tremendously; thank you for helping me to be more effective in my job and to approach my work with humor and grace. Well, most of the time. I hope you too have enjoyed everyone’s wise comments and our fun-and-not-too-snarky remarks.

Thank you for all your help!

    You’ll be back. You think you can just quit?! No no, you’ll find yourself looking for a dimebag of snarky blogging in a few days, then the next thing you know you’re digging through your sofa cushions trying to find a couple of sarcastic retorts.

    Good luck with whatever you do to fill the time you once spent on snarkiness.

    Aw, shucks! I always enjoyed your posts because it gave me hope that maybe someone at your level was actually sane…

    I loved reading your comments every day. It spared you my calling for some phony reason just to hear your voice. Maybe I’ll start sending you the very witty forwards I get from high school classmates about old women, always with the caveat that if you don’t forward it to ten old women you will gain ten pounds in ten days. I will miss you.

    A few personal notes…

    @Seth: instead of blogging, I’m just gonna call you. be warned. talk to you soon!

    @etselec: thank you. sanity is a myth; I’m just hoping for a “shared experience of perceived craziness.” I will miss your comments but am looking forward to hearing more in person perhaps soon?

    @Mom: you’ve just been put on auto-delete. As a matter of fact, who are you? I don’t believe we’ve met.

    @rufusb: If only I knew who you were so I could thank you in person, if only, if only…. 😉 [with much gratitude]

    @TT: Thank you! I did my best and when I failed, everyone else was hilarious. I think there’s a motivational wall sampler to that effect. Something about someone carrying someone and a broken sand dollar. Damn, that should’ve been my image!

    Whoever “Mom” is, I think you should cut her a little slack.

    I’m speechless…or snark-less. I can’t believe it. I loved this blog!

    Thanks, Maurry. Slack has been cut.

    KD & Sukey: Thank you so much for your excellent comments. We will snark again. And, the truth is, I never left you. All through my wild days, my mad existence, …. don’t keep your distance….

    Late to the party, again. I’ve avoided commenting on this because I don’t want it to be true – I still keep checking back here every day. Well, happy trails, ctorproject! Hope you can let your freak flag fly at least a little in whatever forum you end up pursuing next 🙂

    Don’t worry! I’m not dead yet! I will let you know when and where I re-emerge!
