I saw it coming. I really did.

When she posted that cartoon on October 9th. You know, the one with the dogs chatting and one dog laments he couldn’t hold up his end of the dinner party conversation. She entitled the post “Oh, come on, we made a few good points.” and added “didn’t we?” to the body. I thought, “That’s it. She’s signing off.” And then she posted a couple more times and I thought I was wrong, but then the expected came. Gail Armstrong at Open Brackets has signed off. So I’ve replaced her link in my sidebar with Comics Curmudgeon. If you can’t have one kind of acerbity, have another.

I started reading it when she still bemoaned living in France and not in her native Canada. It was one of the first blogs I started reading regularly. I’ve always loved her take on language and life. And she’s done.

I think the only original early-days blog I still read is Jessamyn‘s. Hope she sticks with it.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
