Spinsterella takes a break

For various reasons, I'm having to give up blogging.

Temporarily, in all probability. I may be back in 6 months or six weeks; here or perhaps in another guise.

For those of you that have been reading and commenting on these unedited, rambling, often drunken rants over the past, jesus, nearly two years - thank you.

I love you all (in a virtual, non-tactile way, obviously).

It's been fucking brilliant.

(And if you just got here - well, it was quite good sometimes. You missed it.)


  • Oh bloody hell. Another one bites the dust :(

    You'll be missed by many. Hope you can return soon ... and that you manage to Get Some during the break!

  • Good luck Spin!

    By Blogger Murph, at 9:09 PM  

  • This is not good.

    If you're worrying about running out of material I know plenty of unsuitable/deranged blokes - just give me the nod.

    Hurry back, Spin.

  • MY god, woman, WHY, WHY?!?!?

    Perhaps it's because you have found a hot man and you can no longer keep up the persona?

    I demand answers.

    By Blogger Warrior Two, at 9:50 PM  

  • I do hope you're OK. Loads of love, and I hope you come back soon!

    By Blogger Liz, at 10:32 PM  

  • Oh. Bugger.

    I know I never commented, but I have been reading. And now I won't be able to.


    Hope you're okay. All the very best to you.

    By Blogger Chaucer's Bitch, at 11:01 PM  

  • waaah

    well, when you do come back, let us know

    By Blogger GreatSheElephant, at 11:20 PM  

  • Oh no, Spinny, there have been enough breakups in my life lately (me and my two best friends)! I can't lose another source of entertainment and pretend-company! Oh well, I don't think you'll last long anyway. And I will most likely bump into you at Glasto...

    By Blogger Loganoc, at 11:42 PM  

  • You lobbed the ball up very generously so that commenters could hit it away to great good effect. But what you said in the first place stayed in the mind, so you came out in front.

    Anyway, it's the taking part that's the main thing, so I hope you'll be coming back with lots of "Reader, I shagged him"...

    Thanks a lot, and take care.

  • whoa, Spinsta! I can't believe I chosed today of all days to check on you! Okay, so while you're vacationing from the blogosphere, I'll catch up on your archives to see what you've been doing.

    Hopefully, you'll be back soon to add to your spinning adventures, Sista!

    peace out,
    lil sis

  • Oh bollocks. Best of luck with it all, and hope you come back soon. Your blog has consistently been one of the best, and I'll miss it - and you - a lot.

    By Blogger patroclus, at 8:15 AM  

  • Fare thee well.

    By Blogger Dave, at 8:24 AM  

  • I'm holding my breath until you start blogging again. If I lose consciousness, fall off my chair and bang my head on the desk it will be ALL YOUR FAULT.

    By Blogger Bowleserised, at 10:36 AM  

  • Boo. Take care, we will miss you.

    By Blogger Clair, at 11:44 AM  

  • Eep. Goodbye :(

    By Blogger Annie Rhiannon, at 11:49 AM  

  • Shame, you've become a new fave. Come back soon.

    By Blogger Five-Centres, at 11:55 AM  

  • To bad, I have been reading you for a year now, and this blog has been great.

    Thank you Spinsterella.

    By Blogger Drom, at 12:15 PM  

  • Good luck, but do come back. Please.

    By Blogger Billy, at 12:38 PM  

  • Sorry to hear you are gone. Thinking of exiting myself actually. More trouble than its worth. . .most of the time. Come back soon.

    By Blogger Drama Queen, at 1:24 PM  

  • We'll still be around when you come back.

    You're one of the best.

    By Blogger Geoff, at 1:59 PM  

  • Spinsterella,
    I miss you already. :(

    By Blogger Remiman, at 4:29 PM  

  • Hmph. Well, hope everything's ok, and hurry back soon.

    And DQ? Don't you dare.

    By Blogger Hannah, at 4:37 PM  

  • Cheerio, Spin. Good luck and expect to see you back here

    By Blogger the whales, at 4:51 PM  

  • I hope you can come back. Always a good read.

    By Blogger Arabella, at 4:53 PM  

  • 1. Never announce a job interview.
    2. Never announce your driving test.
    3. Never announce your moving date.
    4. Never announce your undying love for a new boyfriend/girlfriend.
    5. Never announce a diet.
    6. Never announce your departure.
    7. All the best.

  • Spin, you were on my blogroll even before I knew it was called that. I think you've made more tea shoot out of my nose that anyone else. You are funny, you are clever, you are evil, but in a good way. Please come back, in some shape or form.

    Thank you.

    By Blogger Tim Footman, at 6:35 PM  

  • hello there - it was my post that I deleted - used the wrong sign off name and gremlins in the comp prevented me from reposting.

    Anyhoo, sad to see you leave, without wishing to offend others, this is one of the few blogs I read regularly.

    If you do come back, I'll keep reading. If you don't hope all works out and you're forced to ditch the spinsterella name. I have a feeling it will.

    By Anonymous riddledwiththepox, at 9:49 PM  

  • Spinny, thanks so much for sharing, er, well, so much...

    I've been reading your blog for ages and it was in my top-three-must-check blogs.

    Hope you keep writing in some form or another - I really enjoyed your other, not-about-the-spinsterhood, posts, too.

    Good luck with the life stuff - and apologies for not showing my appreciation earlier, like.

    By Anonymous dolly, at 11:20 PM  

  • I really, really hope you will come back soon. I also hope that, when you do, you will not limit yourself any more to a certain area of subject matter. You are sooo very entertaining to read and we want to know more of you and your life. I mean, you can still be Spinsterella and talk about other areas of your life besides spinsterhood, right? We want to hear whatever you want to say about whatever you want to talk about...we just want to hear you. Even if, yes, it's technically reading you. You have lots of fans, many of whom you don't even know. Please come back to us soon.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:47 AM  

  • Oh god - I go off air for two days and THIS! Hope all well with you Spin and see you in another dimension of cyberspace at some point I hope. If you do come back - please notify as I absolutely love reading your posts. Big hug from the blogosphere xxxxx

    By Blogger rockmother, at 10:00 AM  

  • I enjoyed reading this blog and liked your forthright style. But there was always a slight touch of pathos about it: we were supposed to be reading about your present sexploits as well your past, but in the year and a half that I followed it, it never really materialised...

    Whatever happens I hope you re-discover the self-confidence that you had in days past, and get yourself all that cock that you desire and deserve! :o)

    By Blogger Ant, at 3:06 PM  

  • oh sweetheart, i'm sorry to see you go. if you ever feel like it, gimme a dingle here. i'd like hearing from you a lot:


    dammit, this sucks.
    i will miss you.

    By Blogger First Nations, at 7:05 PM  

  • Dammit! I hope you'll be back soon - you'll be missed in the meantime.

    By Blogger Melissa, at 1:02 PM  

  • Oh bum! Hope you're alright and that you'll be back soon. It's been great fun.

    By Blogger loobyloo, at 5:19 PM  

  • boooo. rubbish. come back soon..

    By Blogger surly girl, at 6:51 PM  

  • Sorry you're off - I'll miss this blog a lot :(

    By Anonymous lethe, at 12:24 AM  

  • Thanks for everything Spinny. You were fucking fantastic.*

    *[Exit Bob, wiping away a tear, hoping that his deliberately enigmatic/sexually allusive final comment will lure the Spinster back from the real world, if only categorically to deny any impropriety or wrongdoing. Incidentally, nothing ever did happen. Worse luck...)]

    L.U.V. on ya Spin and let us know if/when you resurface,


    By Blogger Robert Swipe, at 12:28 PM  

  • Sorry to hear that. I don't think I ever commented much but I always enjoyed visiting. Best wishes.

    By Blogger dh, at 3:24 PM  

  • I will *miss* your style. I go away for a couple of days and this happens....Best of luck elsewhere

    By Anonymous Fidel, at 10:08 AM  

  • Drat. Looks like I missed it.

    By Blogger Istvanski, at 11:19 AM  

  • I never normally commented as I could never think of anything to say but y'know what?? Totally bites that you've got to ditch.


    Hope you come back again one day.

    By Blogger Babs, at 10:01 PM  

  • I never knew you.

    By Blogger flic, at 11:18 PM  

  • I'm sorry you are going. I will miss your posts.

    Btw, I think you have the best nick EVER.

    By Anonymous mar, at 3:17 PM  

  • Hope you are happy whatever you decide to do. Yep, I was a slurker.

    By Anonymous Mollx, at 2:51 PM

  • What GSE said.


    By Blogger LC, at 6:45 PM  

  • Oh come \on this has gone on quite long enough you know. I keep returning and not a word or a sign. Its a little like belief in god- give us a sign!

    By Blogger Toomuchgrief, at 10:09 AM  

  • Where have you got to, Spinsterella?

    By Blogger the whales, at 7:35 PM  


    I'm really distressed by this.

    I've been reading your blog more than writing my own (with good reason, you're so much more clever than me), what will I do with myself now? I'll keep lurking at others' blogs I suppose.

    Best of luck to you and really hope you reconsider and come back soon.

    Very soon.

    By Blogger yezenia, at 9:10 AM  

  • oh - very dejected. Came back hoping that you might be back - but you're not! Sod it! Hope all ok x

    By Blogger rockmother, at 10:40 AM  

  • Still missing your writing, still checking to see if you've rematerialized.

    Come back!

    By Blogger Melissa, at 2:48 AM  

  • Bollocks

    By Blogger realdoc, at 4:35 PM  

  • we'll just need to keep up a vigil, like those anti-apartheid heroes who used to camp outside the South African high commission in Trafalgar Square...

    By Anonymous zebra, at 12:12 AM  

  • Just wanted to round it up to 60, that's all.

    By Blogger Murph, at 9:38 PM  

  • If its round numbers you like this means you'll have to keep on going. Still no sign of Spinny though eh?

    By Anonymous fidel, at 3:28 PM  

  • there has been a sighting!

    on patroclus' blog!

    there is hope!

    (not to mention waaaay too many exclamation marks!)

    spinny: you are teasing us...COME BACK NOW!

    By Blogger Urban Chick, at 4:51 PM  

  • Oh come on now, this is silly. If I buy you a pony, will you come back?

    By Blogger LC, at 7:15 PM  

  • I've seen you on mine! Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease come back?

    By Blogger rockmother, at 1:33 AM  

  • Come back....

    By Blogger Annie Rhiannon, at 12:18 AM  

  • Waaaaaaaah. Come back. Pleeeeeaaase?
