I'm so sorry for disappearing like that without notice. It was one of those days-begat-weeks kind of situations. I kept thinking I would start-up again the next day but something always came up.
To be honest, I'm actually enjoying the time off. There's some freelance work I need to attend to, some books I need to read and some downtime I need to enjoy without the cloud of guilt hovering over me.
So I guess this is an official hiatus. Hopefully not too long. Perhaps another month or so. If you don't want to check the site everyday to see when SP is back, I encourage you to temporarily join the e-mail list or subscribe to the RSS feed.
Thanks for your understanding (if you're willing to gift some). Talk to you soon.
Well, it looks like this hiatus is going to last longer than I anticipated (although, I wouldn't be surprised if you had anticipated it.
I wish I could give you a timetable but unfortunately, and truthfully, I have no clue when I'll be able to pick-axe out from under all of this other work.
But have no fear, sweet peas! Oualawouzou is here to help us get our Penelope fix with a series of three (3!) guest appearances! Check 'em out on Agaric Champêtre. And don't forget to love your fungi.
Well, first off, I apologize for the lack of updates. This hiatus has gone on waaaay longer than I wanted (don't you roll your eyes at me, young woman).
The big distraction right now is I'm packing-up and moving cross-country to Oakland, CA. I know! It's crazy! HA!
And, hey, if you live in the NYC area, come help empty my apartment at The Skinny Panda Moving Sale! (What a shameless exploitation of the brand.)
But not to fear! Skinny Panda shall return! And soon! And awesome!
Till then, feel free to sign the Save Skinny Panda Petition one of my dum-dum friends made and join the "Skinny Panda Folks" Facebook Group (dunno how to link it, sorry).
Thanks for sticking it out. Talk soon. And talk awesome.
Like it? Dislike it? Just want to say “hi”?

Sorry for the inconsistency with the posts. I am trying to stick to a M-W-F schedule. However, getting to sleep at a reasonable hour is a high priority these days.
When Skinny Panda first started nine years ago (PUNG!), I had no problem getting through the workday on 3 hours of sleep. But now that I'm old and crusty, I need at least seven or else my gizzards fall out.
So why did I decide to "go color" these past few weeks even though it adds hours to the process? Ho ho ho... stop asking silly questions, you silly munchkin...
