My Story, Yours Too.

Place Holder, Fall & A New Year

I'll be away from all forms of the Internet for the next few weeks. Cold turkey. That's the only way to do it, right? It will be difficult, and I will miss you. In my absence, I leave (1) this collage-poem, and

(2) this LINK with a warning:

You might have already seen my wrestling match on Facebook, in which case you should move along. I'm sorry I can't link it directly to my blog. It's not long (a tad over 3 mins), but blogger says it's too long to post directly.

And yeah, I can't believe that's me -- in a local variety show (Hank Duke's Good Time Variety Show).  I've never acted or (believe it or not) wrestled before. 

My opponent claims he's fine, despite an overnight stay in the ER and many purple bruises. (Just kidding, they're pink now.) Strangely, I also didn't notice his limp, his wheelchair, or full-body cast before we fought. I guess I don't know my own strength.

I love you, my sillies.
Take care of yourselves. Forgive my absence, and I'll see you in October.


  1. The wrestling match was classic. Next time we see you in the ring, I'm betting Trumpy will be the ref or the promoter (and it probably won't go good for you or us). Have a good sabbatical.

  2. Robyn, I shall miss you dreadfully. You are a true positive force on this electronic seance. I look forward to October and the pleasure of your renewed company. --Love, Geo.

  3. I clicked on the link and didn't see a wrestling match, only posts from 2016 (such a hopeful time). Going cold turkey is a fine idea but going "substitute" is more effective. So, if you smoke, substitute pretzel sticks. If you drink a bunch of booze, get into coffee. If you internet too much, substitute artisanal fart training.

  4. Happy Rosh Hashanah, Robyn, and enjoy your blogging break (and internet fast)! I'm not on FB so I can't watch that link but, believe me, it CAN'T be any wilder than my imagined version of your wrestling match!

  5. I don't play FB so couldn't see the link.
    I hope your time away from us is restorative, productive and fun.

  6. What? You are off? Weren't you already doing that? lol Great verse indeed. As long as you never channel Hulk Hogan, all will be fine.

  7. No surprise you beat up a guy.
    Enjoy your time away, Robyn!

  8. Wow, Robyn, what a nice tush you have! Has a man ever asked you to sit on him? ;)

  9. I watched your wrestling match a few days ago. I really think you missed your calling. You could have wrestled or been a "manager" like Bobby "The Brain" Heenan (RIP).
    Stay well my friend. Happy New Year! Shana Tova. G'mar H'timah Tova.

  10. I hope you're off doing something (the desire to add someone here can't be denied, lol) fun.

    Have a mai tai while you're away!

  11. My chin is on my chest at the sight of your wrestling match. I always knew you were a badass, but you've exceeded my expectations.


  12. LOL! The video was funny. I know you're short, but wow, everyone else must've been over 6 feet. Actually, that's me at just about any concert.

  13. Happy break and blessings to you. Come back refreshed and in good form. You shall be missed my friend

  14. I'll miss you while you're gone, but totally understand you're need for a break. I hope you enjoy it! Love you my dear friend!

    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  15. Hi human, Robyn,

    Whilst you're messing around with some cold turkey, I duly note your thoughtful pawetry. And yes, in peace and hope, Rosh Hashanah.

    Oh, I saw your video on Farcebook aka Farcebark. Pawesomelly funny, my nice human friend.

    Enjoy your time away playing with a cold turkey.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny 🐶❤

  16. Adriaiiaaannnnnnn!!! Hahaha

    Hilarious shit. I swear that guy had a little chub on.
    Yr a cracker.


  17. I wish you well, my darling friend. I look forward to reading hilarious stories and poems.

  18. I hope you're having a nice break. I bet you're going to feel amazingly refreshed when you return. It's nice to break up the routine, no matter the reason. :) See you soon.
