Fired

I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries over the last few days (translation: my mom called) about why my other blog was suddenly suspended so I thought I would attempt a brief explanation. Here's the scoop. Basically, nie nie and cjane were sick and tired of us getting all of the attention, and I mean SICK. and TIRED. It was causing friction in their family and so for the good of the blogosphere we said ENOUGH ALREADY! We don’t want to break families up, we want to bring them TOGETHER! HOLDING HANDS! SINGING CUMBAYAH! DEDICATING SONGS TO EACH OTHER ON THE RADIO! FRIENDING EACH OTHER ON FACEBOOK TO PLAY MAFIA WARS AND START SNOWBALL FIGHTS AND BOND THROUGH SCRABBLE! So, Kacy, Lisa, Emily and I got together and prayed about it and decided that it would be best for all of us to quit.

Well, at least the part about my mom calling was true.

Truth be told, it was Dooce’s fault. She was all, “Stop being so righteous and profound. You guys make me SICK! All the people I’m turning away from the church are turning back to the church because you guys are so damn cool! (Dooce's words, not mine.) Stop it - you’re ruining everything!!!” And we were all, “Dude. She has a point. After all, the woman has sold more books than Tiger Woods had mistresses so the chick obviously knows what she’s talking about.”

So we listened. And we quit.

Well, at least the part about Tiger was true. And Dooce did sell a lot of books, bless her heart. Must be all those residual blessings from the good ol' days when she paid her tithing and worked on her Young Women's goals.

You know how people sometimes say that “Truth is stranger than fiction”? Well, unfortunately that’s not the case here. The REAL truth (serious this time) is that our blog was owned by a company and that company laid us off. (See what I mean? Boooorrring.) The bad news is that I am really going to miss working with such quality women. It was kind of like being that one girl at school who’s not that interesting but everyone likes her anyway because she hangs out with the popular crowd. I’ll miss that. The good news is that I’m sincerely looking forward to reconnecting here at Rabbit In The Headlights because I’ve missed you! And I’ve missed my rabbit. There’s something about those beady eyes that makes me want to throw him a little treat through the internet so he’ll stop looking so scared. It’s okay rabbit, momma’s back.

Man, you can even make getting fired cool! Maybe this is residual punishment for melting your YW medallion down, I'm just sayin'. AND NO you will NEVER live that down, it's too darn awesome.

ganelle said...

I'm glad to have you back in a place where I can actually MAKE comments without first spending 20 mins. filling out paperwork.

the emily said...

It really is a bummer, I loved the collective feel of that blog. But at least you each have an individual blog I can stalk.

Carly Almost Richardson said...

Woo! You can start swearing again! =)

Sorry about the whole getting fired thing.

just call me jo said...

OMG, lady, you are so irreverent! I love it.
And you didn't really melt down you YW medal, did you? Aren't they just made of zinc or something? That gold's just a coating, people. Come on.

Amy said...

Here's the thing, while I'm glad I'm watching your individual blogs, I just don't see why you can't keep blogging for free. I mean just because you got fired [cringe] shouldn't stop you from doing what you really love to do (I mean...what we really love you to do.)

What? You have better things to do with your time? You're busy? You don't want to spend you life entertaining us? Huh. Strange.

Eh well, no matter, I'll read you here.

JustRandi said...

LOL Ganelle-
I feel the same way!

I've kinda missed you over here, Kristy!

:)

Kelly said...

I will definitely stalk you over here. You were my favorite writer on LRS.

Good luck reconnecting with your bunny friend.

Tia Juana said...

I can't help but think that we are going to get more and better of you over here ... you know, no censorship stuff! Not that you have to be censored, its just that I think you have a lot more to say than you were saying and on the other blog they had to let everyone have a their fair shake/turn.

Tia Juana said...

Oh, and I'll comment here more too. So, its all good.

Karen said...

Um...I'm really sorry you got fired and all, but the selfish girl in me is just happy I still get to read your stuff over here...

And wait! You BURNED your YW medallion?!

Susan said...

YOU were the only reason I read the other blog anyway, so now it will just be easier (by not having to sift through the "other" stuff first). I have friends coast-to-coast who were always like "OMH (the "H" is for heck), did you read Kristy's post today? (from LRS)."

You have a following, don't worry. You're popular enough that soon you'll have adware, sponsors and etc. of your own.

Love ya!

Kerri said...

I followed you over here months ago and I never commented on the other blog (although I really liked LRS) anyway (the registration thing always failed the few times I tried.), so something good came out of it, didn't it? Because now I am commenting. And that should make your day.

Vern said...

just call me jo and karen: Um...yeah. See the post "Shameless" under "Favorite Posts" on the sidebar and you'll see if heather's right. :) spoiler alert: she is.

Jill said...

Does this mean we'll hear the occasional swear word. I hope so.

Lisa said...

Having the rabbit here makes it sting a little less. A little. Also, it makes me feel a little cool to say I've been fired. I'd never been fired before--does that give me street cred, Vern? Because I'm in desperate need for some.

Pauly said...

Personally, I'm glad you're back. I always liked this blog more. The other one was decidedly light (doh!) on the good stuff like glitter boobs, the finer points of pee vs vinegar, and the list goes on ...

Kacy said...

The last thing in this world I want to do is take attention away from CJane.

Mortensen Baby Farm said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhh! I was wondering and give my condolences! Will miss your witty funny as all get out stories! Too bad you don't have a regular blog you could make us all laugh with. Oh wait...

ann said...

I'm glad you are all continuing on on your own, but you were a unique mix that I will miss having together!
