Apologetics and Where's Matt?

If it seems like a coon's age since I've visited your blog (or visited but didn't leave a comment), you're probably right. For some its been a month of Sundays, while others have experienced a cold day in Hell.

The problem isn't at your end, of course, so please, do not adjust your sets. 'Tis me on this end of the Intertubes. I'm dancing just about as fast as I can dance, but I'm not getting anywhere—just like poor Matt in this outtakes video. (I love this guy.)

You know the reasons for my slowity: not breathing on all cylinders, a nasty medication, and increasing damage to my eyesight. I know I'm missing a TON of good stuff and it's frustrating as hell. Stressful, even—I want to know what is going on in the lives of all my Blogaritaville friends.

But all I can do is the best that I can do, and I have to accept that.





You know, as long as I'm here, I might as well bitch about something. I know I have the original "Where the Hell is Matt" video around here someplace, but I'll be dang nabbed if I can find it. Professor Organized ain't as organized as he thinks he is because he's cheep, cheep, cheep with the labels.




Did I mention that I love this guy?

The best you can do is damned fine. Always.

You don't have to apologize for anything........I love ya' even if you don't stop by.....I can call on YOU.

And incidentally, even your worst is good enough.

No need for apologies. That you post is just so humbling.

DJan said...

I think you are amazing, and Matt is too! It's impossible to feel bad when you've watched Matt dance for awhile. Thanks! And hugs, too...

hope said...

Hi Charlie! How are ya?

Fun as usual, I see. That first video was hysterical..thanks for sharing!

Pat said...

You didn't have to explain but it was sweet of you to do so and we know that you still love us:)
Enjoyed the video - especially the kids.

I can truly appreciate what a fete this guy has accomplished; a lot of hours and money go into a few seconds of video. This is really creative - I love it.

As long as you're still breathing (occasionally), Charlie.

You've accumulated more than enough brownie points to know that you never have to visit again, but will still be thought of fondly.

Charlie that bladge on your sidebar turned out really good.

That "Where the Hell is Matt" is one of the all time youtube favorites. It certainly is in my top ten.

take care and don't worry about blog visits.

What a cool job Matt has.
hang tough, Charlie.

TechnoBabe said...

We are huge fans of Matt too. I particularly like to see ones with children dancing with Matt. Watching his videos make the world seem smaller and all of us closer together.

savannah said...

have i told you how much i love YOU? well, i do! ;~D xoxoxoxoxoxoxoo

Charlie said...

TechnoBabe: "Watching his videos make the world seem smaller and all of us closer together."

That's the same feeling I get: a worldwide village enjoying our common humanity. World peace through song and dance—what a beautiful dream.

Stinkypaw said...

No appologies needed, please.

And please do excuse me going MIA as well, I just don't "feel it" lately...

Warden Files said...

Good God man, you have been greatly missed.

Princess said...

Hello Charlie,
We have never met but Miss Savannah suggested I drop over and say hello.
That boy Wally is a fun guy the way he manages to get complete strangers to join him in the dance...
There should be more Wallys in the world, I think we would all be a little better off if we joined him...in spreading the joy....

Tiffin said...

Charlie, every post from you here feels like a gift. No apologies are ever necessary.

Jeannie said...

I just happened over her via the Domesticated Bohemian. Really enjoyed the Dancing Matt videos. Thanks for posting those.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I'm in no position to pull tongues at anyone just lately. I'm just glad to see you're still here and still finding something to poke with a stick.

Have you tried the sock drawer?

Hey Charile,

Sorry I've been away from the blog world for a while. I was in the hospital because of my schizophernia. I am better now, though! I love that "Where's Matt?" video.

Hugs with blessings,
Amanda

Alice said...

you owe absolutely no apologies. i can do without comments, as long as i can visit your place and find you! and you aren't missing much here. just the usual "jaws" commentary and some vampire rants.
