From The 'Its A Dirty Job But Someones Gotta Do It' Files.....

One must always remember to wash ones hands rather vigorously with the strongest anti-bacterial soap available after meeting the acquaintance of a real, live Dick Carrier. That is all.

I apologize for the prolonged absence. I'm just not feeling this blogging thing much anymore......life has gotten really busy and I'm really tired.

Thanks for your calls and e-mails of concern.

I may have to break down and write the dreaded Time And Season post as it pertains to blogging very soon.

Amanda said...

I am totally feeling the same thing about blogging. I actually had decided this past weekend that I was giving it up. I was gonna quite cold turkey, but I couldn't do that to all my adoring fans (all 3 of them lol).

Now back to your post.....my father's name is Richard and he is often called Dick for short. Okay, that came out weird. Anyway, Why? Why do they use the name Dick? Of course after my parents got divorced I believe that my Dad's nick name took on a whole different meaning to my mother. ;)

What?! I know there are waayyy more freaky stories from your childhood and adolescence that you haven't shared yet. Dang it! How about if you ever get the urge to post a nutty story, you can come guest post somewhere.

Chris said...

NICE!

In a perverted way, naturally.

omar said...

Wow, that's... That's not cool. I wonder when that became a popular slang term?

Nancy Face said...

That sign says it all, HAHAHA! :D

I'm sorry you're very tired and blogging ain't so fun any more. If you decide to stop, I will really miss you, my friend!

Lisa said...

Haha! Some ward member ladies and I had a conversation about different Dick names we know at a baby shower. Isn't that always the topic at a baby shower?

Elastic-you are a busy mom. No one would blame you, although it would be sad not to hear from you.

I thought of you when I posted my for sale sign. No funny name on it, but you always find the good ones.

Take a break-get some rest and spend time with your cute family!!

Amber said...

STEP AWAY FROM THE LEDGE. Here's the deal: cut back. Only blog when you feel like it. So many are full-throttle and get burned out. Personally, I had to cut back signficantly (including writing a visits) and feel renewed again. It's a beautiful thing.

Sniff.

Suzanne said...

LOL Elastic!!! That is so naughty! :D

I feel you on the blogging blahs. I worry that the newness of it has worn of because I have been blogging for a year. What is happening to all of us? :(

P.S. I'm one of Amanda's fans! :D

No Cool Story said...

Now see, I would have changed my name. Or maybe he enjoys that.

I figured you were busy having fun. Or working. Or having fun?
Take care okay?

Jean Knee said...

He could be on that show "dirty Jobs" or whatever it's called.

they have sewer workers and such. so far no dick carriers

I wonder what the pay is.......just wondering

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

How many Dick Carriers are out there in the world, do you suppose? They should start a club: "Dick Carriers of America."

That name is right up there with Plenty O'Toole and Pussy Galore.

omar said...

"You're in good hands with Dick Carrier."

glittersmama said...

I'm pretty sure that I would use Richard or change my name completely. I've never been able to look anyone in the eye and call them dick. Even if it is their name.

Tori :) said...

I'm with my twin- I would have changed my name. I had a PE teacher named "Mr. Dickman." He was a jerk. His name fit him. And why would you work at an elementary school with a name like "Dickman"? You're just ASKING for it!

nora.lakehurst said...

Me too. I am having a hard time blogging especially when there is only two people or so that come to see my blog and post anything or even visit. SO I guess I wont be greatly missed. I hope that you are going to keep it up but only post when you want to. HA HA HA to that its HILARIOUS.

Julie said...

"Hi. Nice to meet you. I hope you don't mind if we don't shake hands...."

A guy in my sister's ward got up during priesthood meeting and asked people to call him Little Dick (his name is Richard). My husband works with a lady whose husband's name is Harry (short for Harold) Wiener. He refuses to go by Harold.

Take a break, but please don't go away. The rest of us will be in withdrawal.

And I still owe you some good mail. (I have your postcard stuck up on my bulletin board. It still makes me laugh.)

Bee said...

Well I'm gonna keep on clickin' anyway!

I feel a Beavis and Butthead moment coming...

::heh heh heh you said dick carrier heh heh heh::

Annie said...

I don't know why it still amazes me that you find these things.

Quit! Quit! Quit! I DARE YA!











































just kidding

Theoretical Grammatarian said...

Sounds like the attendant to an excessively "full service" men's room. Just imagine the tips he would get!

I do feel you on the blogging front, though. I haven't been feeling it much the last few months...okay, this whole year, really. I only have one spawn, though, and not nearly as many things on my plate as you've got, so I am always inspired by your ability to keep up with your life and still make the time to blog at all! Hopefully you'll still grace us with a post now and then, even if you can't do so daily, or even weekly.

aubrey said...

i'm with elizabeth w..there are so many stories we know you have to share with us. maybe go down to one a week..no pressure. i, for one, would miss you.

as for dick carrier. apparently he likes his name, otherwise he would have changed it a long time ago. cuz with that name..he's just asking for it.

aubrey said...

oh and i love maria taylor being on your playlist!

Raesha D said...

That is hilarious!! I drove to work today next to a concrete truck and the business name was "Arreola Concrete" I thought of you immediately! And if I wasn't driving 70mph on the freeway I would have snapped a picture for you! My co worker thought that would be a fabulous porno name.
Thanks for the great good mail postcard!!!

compulsive writer said...

Speechless.

Really I am.

Lauren said...

Wow. I am not daring enough to say anything else on the matter.

But...I do have something to say about the latter:
You must not quit! I look forward to your amazing posts and your...awesomeness. Don't go! Don't leave! Don't make the busy bee cry...

Jennifer B. said...

I never know what I will find here.

Hope your life settles down. I'm taking a blogging break myself--it's cleansing.

Julie said...

Perhaps Mr. Carrier should volunteer to assist pediatricians with circumcisions: 15 bucks an hour plus tips.

jams o donnell said...

Isn't that what the vice president's transport is called? Perhaps he pronouces it cahreeay, a la Hyacinth Bucket...

I know what you meant about blogging overload. I will cut back a bit myself. I hope you don't give up EWBL. The Smiling Infidel is always a joy to read!

Jean Knee said...

oh laws did she really say plus tips...haaa haawww haww
