Hai gyz, undie lib here with a long overdue update. Many of you in the comments are dying to know how the queen of snarkaluciosness, our dear maru, has been. I last had contact with her almost a month ago, and she said that the bf is on the mend and that she had hoped to start posting again, but she says "The never-ending pettiness and utter bullshit in politics today leaves me drained."
I feel her pain. But she is the best, and an inspiration to me and I, as you, feel like there is a peculiar void in my life without her unique and hilariously snarky perspective on the current political picture.
Consider this update a show maru the love thread.

I, too, drop by every day hoping Maru will have returned. Will keep the faith.

BT said...

I'm really glad the bf is getting better...and we all do really miss her. (I know, sounds selfish to ask her to begin posting again, all because we on the other end of the Intertubes miss her snark.)

But we miss her snark!

Thanks for the update, Undie Lib. We all check in everyday, and hope things improve overall.

I sent her a couple of books to distract her during the bf's recovery. Glad to hear that he is on the mend, and that our beloved Goddess of Snark is OK.

Maru, we love you, chica, and we'll wait patiently for the last straw in political stupidity that drives you back to us, and prompts you to use the asshat picture again. (The problem with the asshat is that it fits too many people!

Thanks Undie. I love and miss her to. It's such a relief to know that the BF is mending and that she wasn't in mourning this whole time. And yes, it can be necessary to unplug from the complete insanity that the political world has become. Love and hugs Maru.

We miss you Maru! Glad the BF is on the mend. Was getting increasingly worried something had happened to you as well; am really glad to hear that's not the case.

Fully understand the "drained" part. As I get on the web each day, checking the news, and of course reading through all the Eeeeevil Anonymous Bloggers for news not given the time of day by our Liberal Media, I usually get disgusted and have to turn away from it. I think I may actually have greater "outrage fatigue" now, than at any point during the W years. I guess it just hurts when the people you/we helped put into power are stabbing us in the collective back just as readily as the reThugs did. And that they let the MINORITY party run roughshod over them, & the rest of us.

Anyway hang in there, come back when you can (for as little or as much as you can stand), and know there's a lot of us out here rooting for the return of your unique and wonderful snark.

Take care -
(GoodOl'WhatsisFace)

p.s. Thx for the post & news, UndieLib -

Yay, thanks Undie Lib. Best wishes for Maru and the bf.

Missing you.

Oblio said...

Thanks for the update... positive vibrations goes their way from the Left Coast!

William said...

Good to hear the BF is getting better. I'm drained too - hardly comment anywhere anymore. Then again, how long can we keep silent amidst the insanity?

All the best.

Tons of love!! I check here every day.

Jim said...

As long as he's getting better, we can wait. Hope to hear from you soon, Maru!

Jill said...

((((HUG)))) to Maru.

Labrys said...

SO glad to get an update...I feel the same "OMGs, same shit different day" pain. But I hope she regains her urge to murderous snarking soon...

I can no more than echo all above. C'mon back, Maru!

Big Em said...

Yeah, everybody's saying all the good things - - and I'm no good at this sappy stuff anyways -- but glad to hear things are going better for you Maru! And thanks again to UL!

Thx 4 chiming in again, undie - you do it quite well too.

I hope maru enjoys the break, clears her head, and feels the urge again, after a good long spanish pause.

I read 13 blogs on a daily basis; this one was always the first one I look at. Keep up the good work.

Undie Lib, I could kiss ya on the mouth.
Thanks fer stepping up to the plate in her time of need.
Glad to hear both of them are still kicking, I got it when she said there were some serious medical issues.

Now, as for you, Maru my dear.
get off your ass and at least acknowledge your fans. It ain't like the Who's reunion tour, some of those guys are still quite dead.

Love ya dearly honey, I have been trolling around here damn near five years now, as I recall.Two months with out even a decent Fuck you? Please, that's just fucking rude.
Take a minute and let me know that future lessons in Advanced Snark are still at least a possibility?

Hugz,
Busted.

Undie Lib - thanks for the update. Maru, don't give up for "the worst are full of passionate intensity" and we need your voice. BF - just get better, we need you.

Thank you Jaysus undie lib! I've been checking nearly every day since the last post and glad to hear that things are getting better for the BF. I agree about what she says about being drained, and Maru's take on the day's events have helped me keep my sanity for the last several years. We need you Maru!

We miss you, Maru!

Farman said...

I'm glad all is going better. I hope this blog can be continued. I really love your pics! (Which I steal now and then).

Fixer said...

Glad things are looking up. Hurry back, Maru. It looks like UL's gone nuts! Heh ...

Chris Vosburg said...

Maru? Maru Who? Sorry, doesn't ring any bells...

Seriously, deeply relieved to hear that the BF abides and is on the mend, and take your time, darlin'--
We'll be here.

karenmarie said...

Yay, Maru! I'm relieved to hear that things are looking up, BF-wise. I had been checking in periodically but got a puppy mid July so missed the return of posting here.

I'm going to enjoy all the stuff posted between this one and the current date.

Yay, Maru!
