The Hymie Manoeuvre

NO, I DON'T MEAN THIS -- THE HEIMLICH MANOEUVRE.

Self-administered...

Or by someone else, when you're choking on whatever you've consumed or taken in...


I'M talkin' bout the HYMIE Manoeuvre.

As in Hymie, the robotic idiot from Get Smart, one of my favourite shows of all time.

Like Hymie sometimes, smoke has been coming out of my ears. I'M BURNING UP!


So I need to get checked out by Agents 86 and 99 and the Chief and the rest of the crew. I need an overhaul and a respite from the computer or I'll be decomissioned!



So I'm taking a bit of a break to recover my brain, such as it is, which has been jettisoned.


See you later!

  9. How is the self imposed exile workin' out for ya?

    Have you turned into Howard Hughes yet...peeing in jars and shuffling around with your feet in empty kleenex boxes?

    OK I miss you...
    there I said it!
    Now get your ass back here.

  10. Hey man, I finally got around to sending you that Vegemite. Spread it THINLY on toast - too thick, and you'll probably choke. :) Or have it in a sandwich with cheese. Build up the thickness gradually so you have a chance to get used to it!!

  11. I had one of them hiatuses. Doc said surgery could fix it but I opted for the meds.

    It's fine now. :)

  12. Please come back. I miss you.

  13. I'm ready with your birthday spanking.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Y'all:

    I'm still hibernating but just want to thank all of you for saying hi and, today, for wishing me a happy birthday (and a spanking, MJ? Your first comment was about slapping, your second about spanking. Must be a fetish).

    Angel, no one caught my jettisoned grey matter, whatever little bit I had to begin with. I'm still looking for it, which explains my absence.

    Mr. Coppens, that's the one Hymie line I thought was TOO stupid, even for me.

    Anna:

    My god, your girls are gorgeous!

    I'll be bach.

    Toasty, it's getting dirty around here, what happened to you cleaning up?

    Ziggi:

    Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio? Hope all's well.

    Stace:

    Thanks for the Bday wishes and I'll catch up on the fetus news soon. Hope you're feeling OK.

    Mr. Coppens:

    You'll have to empty all those pee jars when you come over Monday night.

    Stace:

    The vegemite hasn't arrived -- maybe it got stuck somewhere. I can't believe you actually sent some, you're a darlin'...

    Frank Baron:

    Ha! A hiatus hernia, you're talkin' bout! Nuff said.

    Anna:

    Miss you too, but like I said, I'll be bach -- I think!

    Andrea:

    Thanks, you.

    Eroswings:

    My brain has needed the vacation. And now I've got a REAL week's vacation comin'!

  15. You prolly won't check your F Book so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Happy birthday! Hope you did something special to celebrate. If you like you can pass on your birthday spankings to me. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Coppens (That "Mr." honorific doesn't behoove you):

    I went to Facebook, you moron.

    Anna:

    But if I pass on MJ's spanking gift to you, what birthday present will I have? Nothing!

    Besides, I was always taught to accept gifts, whatever they may be, with a humble smile.

    I worked last night and my kids teased me, plus I received tons of Facebook and blog Bday wishes.

    Tonight, in the piece de resistance, I'm footing the bill to take my kids out to celebrate my birthday.

    I get no respect...

    Awesome pix your last post, I'll get around there to comment at some point...

  20. Smoke has been coming out of your ears ?!!! Have a fast and total recovery, enjoy the break and please don't forget to come back !

    ReplyDelete
  21. Eroswings:

    A week-long vacation in mid-November in mid-Canada is nothing to write home about...but it will do. Thanks!

    Toasty:

    Hugs and snogs might just make this old geezer anything but a geezer!

    Hildie:

    Smoke's always comin' out of my ears, I can't control it...

  22. I'm sure you'll find some project or other pleasant activity to enjoy on your break. Perhaps build a snowman or igloo. Start a snowball fight.

    I've awarded you the Lemonade Award, for taking life's lemons and turning them into margaritas!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Eroswings:

    Thanks for the award! But it feels kinda "bitter"-sweet! Ha ha ha ha!!!

    Seeing as you come from a warm climate and are therefore intellectually challenged when it comes to understanding cold weather...

    It's too cold here right now to really build snowmen or throw snowballs, the snow's too hard.

    And we don't build igloos this far south. Actually, I think very few northern aboriginals build igloos any more, per se.

    Enjoy the Texas sun!

    Gautami:

    Yeah, but thanks fer askin'.

    Common Tater:

    If your question "well?" is to get my reaction to your newest persona, I think you've found the real YOU!

    The avatar is absolutely perfect. You've always been full of starch and carbohydrates, so I think you've found a winner!

    ReplyDelete
  24. No I was wondering where the hell your new posting was?

    I might add that your new avatar is simply splendid. Now there is nothing to stop you from fascinating us with your delightfful insights on timely issues...what's going on in your brain these days?

    OR howzabout a few interior photos of your appliances, haven't seen those in a while? What's going on in your fridge these days?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mr. Common (Potato Head) Tater:

    I don't think I promised a new post. I said it could happen any time, or it may not.

    And thanks for the great new avatar. You purposely put my face off centre, didn't you?

    Ahem -- YOU'RE asking what's new with my fridge and oven that's worth posting about?

    YOU??? He who constantly berates me every time I do such a thing?

    There is NOTHING going on in my brain nowadays. That's the whole point!

  26. ... just passing . . .


    is all well?

  27. MJ:

    So it is! You win the prize, an all-expenses-paid trip to Winnipeg in January or February!

    Don't bother bringing your umbrella.

    ZIggI:

    Hey what's with the two capital I's?

    All is OK, lovely one. I'm just trying to spend less time in front of my computer and more time doing other things.

    :-)

  28. Did you get the vegemite yet??

    ReplyDelete
  29. Stace:

    YES! It arrived today! But it's been sitting out in the mailbox for hours, hope it isn't frozen...

    Haven't opened yet because I'm going to blog about the whole thing. You're priceless, girl!!!

    :-)

  30. Happy (Vegemite) Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You know, I'm not above begging you to come back. I'll even get on my knees. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Eroswings:

    As opposed to a vegemite sandwich, you mean? Hey, Happy Thanksgiving to YOU! We had ours a couple of weeks ago.

    Anna:

    Well now, THAT could be interesting...;-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hope you're well and enjoying your hiatus!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I want some Vegemite too!!
    What goes with Vmite..Rye?
    I am so there..
    too subtle eh..

    HEY DONN,
    I REALLY THINK THAT YOU'RE AN AWESOME DUDE.
    I'D SURE LOVE IT IF YOU COULD TAKE TIME OUT OF YOUR BUSY SCHEDULE AND COME OVER TO TRY SOME OF STACE'S VEGEMITE AND DRINK ALL OF MY WHISKEY.
    THAT WOULD REALLY MAKE MY DAY...
    PRETTY PLEASE?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks Pam! It's been almost a month now, my longest blogger break ever...

    Common Tater:

    Nice try, Mr. Potato Head. You just want to get in on the blog post I do about Stace's vegemite.

    And what would be different about you coming over and drinking all of my whisky?

    What can I say, I been busy. Maybe this coming week.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Atleast change these bloody pictures!
    Don't you have any photos of Monica Bellucci?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Common Tater, you imbecile:

    I will change the pictures when I post a new post, if and when that should happen.

    Your twitterpating re Monica Belluci is noted, but you have your own pix collection of her.

    You have only a few days before your own self-imposed exile from posting allows you to post pix of her.

    Me, I've been a little distracted and busy. I will get to a new post when I'm good and ready.

    And when I am, it will be all about the lovely and now pregnant Stace and her vegemite.

    Now go on your way. Go lay down. You and I will partake of Stace's lovely gift when appropriate.

    My arse will be back before the clock strikes midnight Central Time in Canuckistan, if only for once!

    MJ:

    HA HA HA HA!

    NOW you're gettin it! To awaken you from your deep sleep, would a kiss do, or will more be required?
