So Long and Merci For All the Fish

You may have noticed, this blog hasn't been active since (insert date of latest post). I'm not dead or anything (at least not in any noticeable way, but I stopped being so sure nowadays since seeing The Sixth Sense), and I'm just as busy as ever, but I've stopped feeling guilty and responsible if I don't update the blog. The fact is: it finally dawned on me that I have no readers, apart of my family and a nano-circle of closest friends (and even then, when I ask them their opinion on my latest post, they would say: oh your blog? I haven't checked it for a while), so I'm saying: f*ck it, if nobody cares, why should I?

Hence the title of today's post. It's my way of thanking, from the bottom of my heart, the two followers who agreed to be identified as such: sincere, humble, grateful thanks to them for clicking on something that somehow linked them to this blog, and now I'm setting them free. Heartfelt thanks  to other anonymous readers, if any, to all the people who were previously interested enough to comment and to anyone who accidentally stumbled on this blog. I might post again, whenever.. but it will only be for myself.

Kisses and hugs and thanks for all the fishes.

Explanation from Wikipedia: So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (1984, ISBN 0-345-39183-7) is the fourth book of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series written by Douglas Adams. Its title is the message left by the dolphins when they departed Planet Earth just before it was demolished to make way for a hyperspatial express route, as described in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The phrase has since been adopted by some science fiction fans as a humorous way to say "goodbye" and a song of the same name was featured in the 2005 film adaptation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

UPDATE: I might have spoken too soon (or too late): I can't seem to find my followers on the blog, so they must have de-followed themselves a long time ago, and I didn't even notice.  This final post is so obviously overdue it would be embarrassing to anyone who cares. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
