Where the cherry pie tastes like childhood...


Unlike the last time I tried to take a break from my editrixing duties, this time around I've promised myself to make like double-sided tape and stick to that commitment. My darkened undereyes and throaty bedroom voice brought on by the seven months of no more than six-and-a-half hours of sleep a night run in direct contrast to the it's-important-to-take-care-of-your-physical-appearance dogma on which ASJINE was founded, and as you know, I find almost nothing more repulsive than a hypocrite.

Therefore, for the next six days, I vow to do nothing but sleep 'til noon, go directly from my jammies to my bikini, sleep lakeside on the chaise, watch my city-pup discover life off the leash and complement my mug of morning coffee with a slice of tastes-like-childhood Cherry Hut cherry pie.

And then sleep some more.

See you next Friday!

I love that you're taking Monte with you to the cottage. Are the rural canines aware such a city celebripup is coming to town??

dc girl said...

while I'm sad, you do deserve it. you're too good to us, but we love you for it.

mwah,
DCG

knew you as hannie said...

Have a great time! Do nothing but tan, tan and maybe read a beach book.

Kiss the noodlebear for me!

nyc admirer said...

okay, you've convinced me - Cameron is disgusting. Jesus, that picture...it's horrifying!

have a blast up North - take a dip in Crystal for me!

Brooke said...

I can already taste the cherry pie you will bring for me when you return.

Johanna said...

It'll look exactly like that picture, too. It's *the best*.

Just like someone who hadn't had a bite of Cherry Jerry's famous Cherry Hut pie in 35 years once told me upon tasting his first bingy bite..."it tastes like my childhood."

Mmmm...

Have a fantastic time!

You deserve it, babe, but be back on Friday. My weekend depends on it!

Like Ms. Obsesssed-with-her-figure is *really* gonna eat that for breakfast. Or any meal.

Enjoy your celery sticks and bottled water, girly -- the guys love that whole no meat on the bones look.

jessica said...

egads! no more Cameron!

and please, just because some of us are concerned with our figures doesn't mean we can't enjoy a slice of pie. all we do is add a mile or two onto the run!

My lunch break is miserable without you! Can't you write about northern Michigan fashion?

Puhlease?

I miss you already Jo have a great time and be safe..........

nyc admirer said...

you big fat LIAR, you are NOT taking time off!!! I can see you're going through the laborious task of adding labels to all your posts. You're up to what, 800 by now??

Listen to me, doll, I know it's hard, but close the window, shut down the computer, grab a beer (or two) and a book that wasn't a Pen Faulkner finalist and RELAX! Watch "Nanny 911," watch a bad action movie, heck, watch "Nightline," - anything but blog-related activities.

it's for your own good.

west coast devotee said...

um, LOVE the labels idea. my favorites so far are "Monte," "NYC," "DC run-ins" and of course, because I'm in love with you -- "pictures of moi."

I don't care what your NYC admirer says, get 'em finished as soon as you can!

happy early 4th!

"pictures of moi" - definitely.

Johanna said...

Aw, you miss me! You really *really* miss me!

Well, as you can probably tell (esp. since my NYC Admirer pointed it out), I've spent a bit of my downtime retroactively adding labels to all 915 posts. I thought it would be a chore, but actually coming up with labels like "ass," "female form appreciation," and "relationship with clothes" has been nothing short of fun.

But I'm off now to my tiny town's annual 4th of July parade!

And for the record, I've already scarfed 3 pieces of pie, eaten half of a honeycomb and imbibed a small pile of cans of Miller Light. That's right, *cans*.

It's nothing but high class up here in the sticks!

Happy 4th to you all!

love and kisses,
Johanna

brown rowergirl said...

love and kisses (the Eurotrash kind, naturally) right back atcha, babe.

fireworks in NYC are impressive and all, but I admit, I wish I could be there with you eating a slice of childhood and wearing nothing all day but a string bikini and a pair of flip-flops.

beer in a can? the envy is killing me!

lydia_g said...

the labels are great! so's the blog. I discovered you during your hiatus, and I can't wait to read you "live"! Happy Independence Day!

jackson hole said...

for giving us easy access to "pictures of moi" I must extend my thanks.
